Awesome in the fact that the hard drive I had Windows 7 installed on decided to fail a bunch of S.M.A.R.T. tests and render itself 100% useless. Thank you, Seagate, I knew I should have stayed with Western Digital. Anyhow, I'm working hard on getting the stupid thing back up and running so I can play once again. I've spent the last two days doing system restores and OS reinstalls but I think the drive has kicked the bucket altogether. I'm going to try one last trick up my sleeve and if that doesn't work I'll have it back up and running this weekend.

And for the record, I almost banned you because I'm tired, and your name looks random enough to be a spammer.

I think the drive's chips are what keeps causing the corruption, I've low level formatted that sucker a few times now. I've not had much success with Ubuntu and WineX/insert windows emulator for gaming here and my rig's setup.

Also, how could you? Ban the forum troll?

Cheers. I can now troll more. wink.gif

I had to reinstall 7 so that's going on, ordered a new hard drive as well; I'm sure this will happen again. Got to love hardware and all the massive quality assurance problems there are these days.

Yeah, back in my day our computer were solid as rocks, never had a problem. I mean, take a look at this rig. It screams power, and reliability.

I missed out on the Commodore, surprisingly. Back in the day I was using the Apple II+, Tandy 1000, TI-99/4A, and IBM's 8086.


Good times, good times.
