  1. Might be a silly question, but..... Can you right click on it, and find out where it is pointing to?? It may still point to the original folder in properties. Wild guess, but it might work.
  2. Dont know if it will help, but try turning off the automatic reboot on error, this may help you see the exact error that is occuring. System->Advanced tab->Startup & Recovery area->Settings button->Uncheck Automatically Restart. Also make sure Write an Event to System Log is checked. Should then be able to see what happened.
  3. Get the GTX, will blow 2 8600's out of the system,.
  4. Dont know if it will help, but........... Have a look on the install disk, and see if you can find the file. If so copy it into the game directory somewhere. (possibly also into windows system32 folder).
  5. Western Digital Data Lifeguard, I just ran it on my seagate HDD in Vantec External Case. Wont give you SMART info, but did run quick test. Didnt try extended test though.
  6. Not necessarily true, self built systems can last a lot longer than prebuilt. It depends on who builds it, if they can be stuffed doing a good job, did they have a big night earlier, etc, etc,etc. If you do it yourself, all the above apply, but you can leave it and come back to it. For general windows work, not 3d gaming etc, Alienware is extreme overkill, not to mention expensive. You could have a look at Dell if you are desparate, (again expensive), but nothing beats homebuilt if you can do it. Also with self built, you get to choose what goes in, what quality you use,and also what brands to use. Not helpful Im sure, but my 2cents. PS which state are you in.
  7. Start by checking your temperatures. Sounds like it could be overheating, then you have to wait for it to cool down. Have a look at CPU heat sink and Fan, see if it is clogged with dust.
  8. Didnt know it was out. But again I played too much D1/D2 back in the day. So after seeing your opinion, I might leave it to the beta testers, and see what its like on full release.
  9. Is it a brisbane core?? My 4800 is and it is showing under ambient temps, and going by some of the forums I have read the temps on Brisbanes can show high or low. Have a look at http://forums.amd.com/forum/ and search temps, will get a lot of hits. Also it could be hardware gone bad too, so Im not just blaming temp sensors. (Hope you understood all that.)
  10. Glad I could help, and thanks for letting everyone know it has been fixed.
  11. You could try here http://www.doom9.org/ They have a good habit of helping people revive dead drives. Also you could try this place http://www.cdfreaks.com/ Also a few links on this page, could maybe help http://www.doom9.org/links.htm
  12. You didnt back up the original firmware before flashing? You could always retry the new firmware, and hope for the best. (I have done this before myself)
  13. Unfortunately, being an Aussie, I don't know Walmart. Dont know what to compare it to out here. So I can't give you a definitive answer. Possibly yes, but don't really know.
  14. Might be a silly question, but have you tried another cable?? Have you got both channels enabled in Bios? Does disk management see it? Tired I might go to sleep now.
