121  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Should I Be Optimistic About Avril Lavigne's New Album....Answered! on: January 17, 2013, 05:41:22 AM

I brought myself out of my doldrums yesterday after rediscovering the greatness that is Half Man Half Biscuit.  I dare anyone to be grumpy after listening to even one of their songs.  With song titles like "Fuckin' 'Ell, It's Fred Titmus!", "Lord Hereford's Knob" and the above linked "Took Problem Chimp to Ideal Home Show", simply reading their song list makes me laugh.

best moment: finally getting to play Katamari Damacy and quickly realizing it was better than i had hoped it would be.  still one of the best capital-"G" Games of the past decade and one of my all-time favorites.

saw this last night - i think it was good for some of the casting experiments (though i noticed there are no white people playing black people, only asians... that's kind of a cop-out!) and the overall theme, but it really didn't hang together otherwise. the original story probably works better. also, ... i think i haven't really formulated my thoughts on it. the Wachowskis are weird in that their films have Hollywood-y trappings, but i don't hate them like i would with those.

135  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Monitor going blank after switching from/to full-screen mode on: October 12, 2012, 07:21:16 AM
also happens when changing resolution, once in a while. this is only a 'sometimes' problem, but when it happens, it will occur several times in a row. powering off and then powering on the monitor will display the graphics properly again.

suspecting a monitor or video card issue... mmmmaybe even power supply. has this ever happened to anyone?

so the stupid nub kept falling off, until the socket finally split. i attempted to glue it back onto the PSP, but all i managed to do was dent the surface of the analog controller mechanism and now it doesn't work correctly. it looks like the replacement is simple, but i'm wary of buying an inferior component - what are the best places to order from? i don't mind spending a few more dollars if i can be assured of getting a quality or OEM replacement.

And I tell you, pleasure and pain have nothing to do with heaven or hell. Pleasure and pain—bah! What is your theologian's ecstasy but Mahomet's houri in the dark? This store which men and women set on pleasure and pain, Prendick, is the mark of the beast upon them,—the mark of the beast from which they came!

155  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Drive on: February 19, 2012, 10:00:01 PM
the gf has been pushing me to watch this for a while now, so i did last night... this was just after me seeing _Heat_ and _Thief_ for the first time over the past two weeks, so the spectre of Michael Mann loomed heavily over everything... (she had said that this would just be the same movie again, half-jokingly)

i enjoyed the pacing of it in the first half - there were some scenes where the silences were metronomic and perfectly 'tapped' out. for me, however, the over-the-top violence (even with CGI blood) and simple ending pushed the movie into Sillytown and heavily brought down my estimation of it.

looks like i posted too soon - disabling MS Security Essentials allowed the reinstall from within Windows to correctly finish. (... really?)  still doesn't explain why the booting from DVD/USB failed.
160  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / [solved] Windows 7 failing to reinstall on: February 07, 2012, 02:09:07 AM
I am having problems with my new video card (apparently did not fully uninstall the old video card drivers - dxdiag is still reporting the old video card - and among other issues i get "special memory pool allocation error" BSODs when restarting the machine) and am attempting to reinstall Windows 7, as nothing else I've tried has worked to fix this issue.

When I boot Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate edition from DVD or USB, I get the GUI installation background 'wallpaper' and mouse cursor, but no dialogs, nor is any sort of actionable input displayed. I have to press the reset or power button here to exit.

Attempting to set up from within Windows 7 will successfully copy and extract the installation files, but upon reboot, when the GUI installation screen is displayed with "Setup is starting...", the dialog "Windows could not start the installation process." immediately displays. I can only exit and reboot at this point.

I am attempting to again install from within Windows, but disabling MS Security Essentials first. (I do not see any sort of boot-sector protection options available in the BIOS.) If that fails, I would probably have to fully reformat the hard drive and hope that booting from DVD/USB will display the proper installation dialogs, but that seems a bit risky at this point. I could also attempt to install Linux and see if that fails miserably.

System specs:
8GB (4x2GB) A-DATA Gaming Series 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (running at 1333 speed)
AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor
GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AMD 770 AM3
Socket AM3 PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) ATX Motherboard Retail
HIS Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16
1.5TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 HD
SilverStone ST50F 500W PSU

I should note that MemTestx86+ and Windows Memory Checker (whatever that's called) do not display any errors in RAM.

Ideas?
