    Getting a XBOX 360...and want to prep it for longevity

    The other day I ordered a 360 from Microsoft ExpertZone and I'm going to assume it's not a Jasper chipset. I also have ordered another shell off of eBay so I can paint the shell to match my PS3 (I don't think white is going to cut it for me). At any rate, I'm going to have the bastard open...

    Strange PC behavior....randomly shuts off

    Randomly the other day, my PC just shut off my itself. I dunno what the hell happened, it wasn't power outage related. So I do the normal troubleshooting, taking everything down to a bare bones system (mobo, cpu, video, memory) and it seems to work. As soon as I add any hard drives the system...

    MSDN Disc says it's bootable, and has ISO's, but doesn neither

    I have a Win2K3 STD R2 box that I want to do some testing on, and I can't get a damn CD-R to boot. It specifically states on the DVD that it itself is bootable, and would give me some sort of menu and I could install the OS from there. The other thing is that there are supposed to be ISO's...

    GPT Protective Partition on Maxtor One Touch!

    To make a long story short, I backed up all of 'My Documents' from my rig to my Maxtor One Touch external HDD. I rebuilt my system from XP 64-bit, back to 32-bit XP. When I got everything installed again, I went to go grab all of my documents, and the One Touch doesn't show up. Looking at...

    FIC Ice Cube problem

    Hey guys, I have a FIC Ice Cube....and when I got it, the instructions said to not put in a proc over 2.8GHz. That's what I installed, and it died. I am 90% certain the mobo is toast. Everything else works fine in the case, but I want to replace the mobo in it. I can't seem to find a...

    Project: 98EXL Thermaltake Aqua Computer Armor

    Hello everyone! I figured I would start on my worklog for my first real big modding project. I've been building PC's for awhile, none of them really 'clean' and not up to my OCD standards. I will say, I have been getting parts for awhile now from here, and buying new but here is the vison...

    Creative Live Drive to make it longer?

    Hey guys...been working on a new case, and since it's huge, I have a problem with my LIve Drive ribbon cable being too short, if I want to keep the cable nice and neat (which I do). So my question is, can I just get a longer length of ribbon cable, pull the connectors off my existing live drive...

    PC won't turn on

    I know this is a stupid question, but I'm completely at a loss here. I have one of my many rigs that every once in awhile will not boot. It will get power for a second, then shut off. If I pull the battery on the mobo and put it back in, it works, no problem, boots like a champ. WTF is wrong...

    Volt Modding Fans?

    I have been trying to find more info on this, and have come up with little to no information on this. I have heard of some people making fans 7V or 5V instead of 12V. What does this do exactly, make them quieter, run faster? I just got a new case, and new fans, and I want to spend some time...
