    USB drive plugged in prevents POST

    Issue solved. The drive was set up as a GPT. No idea why that would prevent POST, but alas.

    USB drive plugged in prevents POST

    So I need help with this issue. I've scoured the internet and everyone says 'check boot order' or 'disable legacy USB support'. I've triple checked the boot order and my internal HD with the OS installed is set to boot first (at least while the drive is not plugged in). When the drive is...

    Tried to install graphic card driver, now can't boot (even in safe) or reinstall OS

    Ok so here are the results: I have two monitors (TV and Playstation 3D Monitor). 1) When plugged into TV, computer boots fine and if I unplug and then plug into PS 3D Monitor, works just fine. 2) When plugged into Playstation 3D monitor, computer wont boot past the BIOS screens. If I unplug...

    Tried to install graphic card driver, now can't boot (even in safe) or reinstall OS

    Weird. I'm so confused why this worked. The driver/monitor combination was actually causing the boot to fail, cause I plugged it into another monitor after it was already on -- nothing. However, when I restarted the machine with it plugged into that monitor, boots just fine. What a bizarre...

    Tried to install graphic card driver, now can't boot (even in safe) or reinstall OS

    That's the problem. No integrated graphics on the mobo, and it wasn't a card switch. I just finally got a 3d compatible display so I tried the 3d drivers and boom, this happens.

    Tried to install graphic card driver, now can't boot (even in safe) or reinstall OS

    So I tried installing a new 3d graphics card driver for my new 3d display. When it prompted me to restart, I did. Now, I can't get it to boot at all. It will display the normal BIOS related startup stuff, but when it comes time for Windows to take over, it just shows a gray screen with...

    Valve's new pricing scheme. Don't be a jerk, get stuff cheaper.

    Uh, guys...this has been done for decades in the business to business market. It's called customer segmentation. Those customers who pay on time and in full, accept delivery on time, do not fall outside of SLA's, etc. are given the best bottom dollar price and best pricing terms. Those who all...

    FFXIV Beta?

    So odd. I registered a FFXIII code that specifically states priority access to the FFXIV beta and I've yet to receive an email. Awesome.

    New Releases - Midnight @ Wal Mart?

    Well I think this is the first time I've ever seen someone say "I'd rather give my money to Wal-Mart". Heh. In any case, WalMarts are usually the biggest infractions when it comes to breaking release dates -- several big release games are pushed to stores a few days early and sometimes sold a...

    hehe, I did the same thing a while back. They had the Guild Wars trilogy on sale for like $20 and I posted yet the filter blocked out the URL. :(

    Star Trek Online Open Beta opens tomorrow

    Why not just try it for yourself? I'm sure more beta keys will pop up before launch. So far, I really like the graphics -- but I havent had a lot of time to play. I will report back with my findings once I do.

    10 Twitter Safety Tips To Protect Yourself

    *shrug* Twitter, like Facebook, has its own market. Sure, we may not use Twitter because of a seeming lack of purpose, but they probably think equally bad and incorrect things about message boards full of tech geeks.

    Anyone else disgusted with feminine male characters in Japanese RPGs?

    If anything, I'm disgusted with the stereotypes in JRPGs --- the 17 year old male hero, the love interest 16 y/o heroine, the big muscular monk, the scrawny wizard, etc etc. I just find it interesting that guys in this thread find men that are less than brawny as "feminine". If you are...

    Best game we've never played?

    That's strange. They already made 2 Western themed games in the style of Commandos...:confused: EDIT: Ah -- I see what happened. Helldorado is the third in the Desperados line.

    Just getting into Guild Wars

    I have to disagree. The OP purchased the Triolgy which is a HUGE amount --- I MEAN HUGE amount of PvE content that only gets better as you move up. Like the OP said -- if he starts in Nightfall, he'll get the absolute best PvE experience GW1 has to offer, which is a pretty awesome experience.

    Honestly though, I like that feature. Gets you ingame faster. *shrug* So I forgot to mention, this week is finals week. I'll be in game pretty rarely but should pick up at the end of this week.
