I hate computers

Postby acsguitar » Wed Dec 07, 2005 12:47 am

Well I got a new graphics card! It works yeaaaa.. but in the process of switching out a mobo I bent the pins on my $230 amd 3500+

DOH!

Its not my fault either. The fan was stuck to the chip and when I pulled the chip out it ripped the chip out of the board and bent the pins. I bent the pins back but now my CPU is only showing as 200 mhz...

DamnI!IN!IN!R(*HJ()!RJ)(J!R

I've built like 10 computers in my life and this is the only one I've ever broken.

Well the only option now is sell stuff on ebay and buy a dual processor

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

So far this morning, this is what I've done with my life:

Problem: User isn't getting a wireless signal
Solution: Turn on wireless radio

Problem: Monitor has lines on it
Solution: Turn off monitor; turn it back on

Problem: Printer not printing
Solution: Turn on printer


Yeah, this is one of the dumber days so far, as I usually deal with users who are relatively computer savvy.

So I'm a big retard. The 200mhz is the Cpu Frequency which is right. Multiply it by 11 and you get 2.2ghz...

So I just repaired windows and it started working.

Of course my disk was fragmented to hell!

oh welll

Good day now..7800gt hauls..The freaking guy at pcclub tried to tell me it was broken and i almost bought a 350$ dual core chip and he was like well I just keep this chip as a tester. Thank god the other chip did the same thing and the dude I had been working with said it should be fine.
