1 computer rant on Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:39 pm

It's official: I hate my fricken computer! Evil or Very Mad Whatever glitch it has that won't let me play D3 for more than a few minutes at a time is too irritating for me. Plus, I can't access MS Office anymore because it wants me to reenter my key codes (& I lost the original discs somewhere). Why can't this shit just do what I want without all these hassles??

If u want to give me your computer or a few days I can probably fix it up for you.
What Operating System do you have on it currently?

That could work. Thanks! (If I haven't thrown it against the wall before then...) I think it's windows 7 or 8 or something. Not sure.

I'll be at my parents for dinner tomorrow (Sunday) if you want to hand it off to me then. I believe I have windows 7 OS disks so I should be able to load it with the key that shows in your PC.

Tomorrow (hopefully) doesn't work. I have a tourney that, if I do well, won't end until around 8-ish. If I do poorly, after dinner can work, but I expect to do better than that... :-)

What other day works for you?

Sound like a case of PC road rage Wink
Should be Windows 7.
D3 is likely a video card diver issue.
No clue on MS Ofice issue. Maybe you pick up a virus from a conspiracy theroy web site.

Oh, good like at your toury.

That was disgusting.
I loaded a video card temperature monitor onto Brads laptop, and it gave a reading of 100 degrees. That was after I reinstalled the Operating System and everything else. So I loaded up Diablo 3 and sure enough it crashed after 5 minutes.
Grabbed a can of air and shot it into the vents, and shitload of cat hair and dust shot out. Brad, you should consider ditching the cats and vacuuming your room once in awhile.
Anyway, after vacuuming my floor, I checked the temp monitor and it dropped down to 59 degrees. I fired up D3 and it was fine for the hour that I tested it.
You should be all set Brad.

Brad now has a clean image computer with a lot less dust and cat hair.

Hope it's working out for you Brad.

Yes, working MUCH better! Still getting used to some of the differences, but working great! Where would the world be without smart and/or geeky people?

Is this refering to a memeber of mensa we may know? Rolling Eyes

Hummm, I'm guessing Brad made it long before 8. Wink
