[QUOTE=CCRomeo;2181942]working drunk could be the best way to get a new mainboard.[/QUOTE]
I need a new main board. I’m sticking with my old athlon 64 3400 939 because I love that motherboard so much (abit has made some of the sweetest boards ever), but its stopping me from upgrading to a faster processor.
This one was kind of a bitch, even after sobering up. I went into disk management and the raid tool to see what array was broken, what drive was missing and what there other drive was that was showing up. Turned out to be a sata cable that was plugged in but popped up just a bit, apparently enough that it wasn’t getting contact. Even after fixing it, I knocked another sata cable loose and broke the other damn array!!! So after hooking and unhooking everything, and dragging a fully loaded antec 900 (can you say tank) out of the entertainment center a dozen times, its all fixed and good (arrays are showing up fine).
this computer has 7 (soon to be 8) hard drives so cables all over the place. I have most of it kind of neatly routed and zip tied, but if you pull on one cable, you pull on half a dozen. The really funny thing is I get to tear it all apart over the next few days anyway. I’m moving the drives from their bays and the 3-2 sata rack to 4-3 adapter plates and adding another drive (currently external). I’m also adding a front pannel card reader, and an antec veris remote control pannel to the front (christmas presents to my self, had to make room for them).
I wonder what people would think if they knew I sometimes worked on their computers plastered drunk HAHAHAHAHAAAA… I only do it a little on the side and have yet to destroy anything yet, lol.
