Software only at this point. Attempting to diagnose frequent shutdowns. And drive hits to our new forumz. 😀
Re-installing Windows 7 after I finish my backup to externals.
So this link is much more useful in my case. The first one just had a pretty picture.
The saga continues…
Two things. First, like a noob I didn’t have my MODISC set to boot first in the BIOS. Second, Windows advice is misleading. Or I read it wrong. The method describe to recover failed. Got a clean reinstall by autorun when I put the Windows 7 disc in after Windows was running. 😀
The point of all this? Attempting to diagnose an ongoing catastrophic fail that leads to my PC browntowing.
As it turns out, it was in fact heat related. And now a lesson in thermodynamics. Heat rises. I laid my PC on the side so the fan was blowing up. Problem solved. For now.
My AMD 8 cores are running on the stock heat sink. Was doing a bit of testing honestly. It seems it needs an upgrade.
I was able to get video capz with XSplit running again and kept things under a reasonably warm 60 C for a few minutes at a time during my tests last night. I have adjusted Planetside 2 video settings to low and the frames were well above 40 in most cases.
Unfortunately a new lag bug seemed to be presenting itself. Lots of warping. There’s always something else.
Oh and I would like to welcome Mozilla Firefox back into my life for the first time again in many years it is better than Chrome.
