WTF! (PC Issues)

i swear to god i am never turning off my PC again.

turned it off last night because at 4 in the morning after not being able to sleep the sound of my pc's internal tornado (the cpu fan, it throttles up under load but never throttles down) was just getting annoying, so i reached over and shut it off, just hit the power button and let it turn itself off, nothing was running so no biggie.

well today i start it up, and it sticks the start button taskbar on my 19" monitor (even though my 32" is setup as primary display) and just scatters all my icons that were on the 19" onto my 32". im like "you ****er" so i re-arrange everything, get the taskbar back onto the big screen (had to stick it in single-display then back to dual independent mode) and re-arrange my icons.

then i notice my network icon is red with a big X, so i hover over it, the mouseover bubble pops up with no text. so i right click and that bubble pops up but it takes a good 5 seconds for the mouse to highlight "Network and Connections". interesting. so i click, and the large window opens and is blank. wtf. so i wait, and click on firefox to check and sure enough, internet works fine. so i browse for a bit, then decide to end-task the connections menu. i end-task once and it loads, but i cant click anything, however i notice now it says "Network unknown" and under that its "Server authentication failed!" you ****ing bastage. so i end-task it again. and again. now guess what, "Windows Explorer has stopped responding". great. so i ****ing hit the big reset button on its ***.

wait for it to restart, same thing, it ****ed up my start bar and icons. who'da thunk. fixed those, network still red X, tried it again, unresponsive. windows failed again.

so now im heated. start it up again, and decide "**** you network thingy" and open firefox and it brings me to the page after you update it, however, i dont remember updating it. go to click on hotmail, and there is no hotmail bookmark on top. ALL of my bookmark tabs vanished!

****ing horse****. never shutting down again.

Re: WTF! (PC Issues)

Re: WTF! (PC Issues)

I also never turn my machine off due to reasons like that. Let the ****er run forever, it's got enough fans to cool it down

Re: WTF! (PC Issues)

is it possible for video cards to just be ****?

i re-installed NFS:Carbon a while ago and finally got around to playing, expecting the 8800GTX to make short work of its 2006 graphical splendor, i set everything at full. yeah that wasnt happening, talk about horrid framerates. so i put everything on medium and changed a few things to high, and that worked, but every 5 seconds it "chugs" as it reloads textures or whatever, which really sucks *** if youre doing 150mph and your screen freezes inside a turn. which is strange, my 7800GToc ran the game on mostly high with a few settings turned down or off. the GTX should be laughing at this game! wtf!

like cmon, i have more than enough PC for most games (save for Crysis) but games ive tried look horrendous (Halo2, Quake4, Doom3, Prey, and BioShock aside). i have more processor than most, more ram than most, more video card than most. all my drives are SATA3.0. Vista score is 5.9 which is the maximum attainable score until SP1 comes out.

im thinking about reverting to XP SP2. if that doesnt work, im prolly gonna sell all this setup, go back to my old setup and get a ****ing Xbox360E.
