161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's your biggest gaming disappointment/sleeper hit of 2014? on: November 19, 2014, 08:12:24 PM
Destiny for sure, then Watch Dogs.

I think Wolfenstein is my sleeper.  Still need to finish it though.

ATB, can you change the title on this thread? It messes with my ability to sort through the list of threads. slywink

Finally since August 14th, I'm now able to use my home PC.

Yesterday I received the replacement mount to install my CPU cooler on the refurbished motherboard.

Installed everything today and now I'm able to receive a signal.  It was my motherboard that was giving me the troubles.

So I ended up mailing back the following

Video Card (received a newer model)
Motherboard (refurbished)

I bought a new power supply in my troubleshooting steps, and while that wasn't the culprit, I ended up with a better power supply for a nominal price of $35.

No more browsing on my phone!

Thanks everyone for the ideas and help.  This was the craziest breakdown in my PC experience of over 20 years.  But it yielded me some better equipment  at the cost of shipping and time.  Not bad.

Anyway, if Ubisoft doesn't change their minds, on release day I'll be on Amazon and Metacritic posting bad reviews. I won't lie, but hopefully my one star rating combined with a bunch of other folks will have some effect.


See that's stupid, you're not punishing the publisher, you're hurting the developers who are not part of this decision.  You're not basing your thoughts on the game, you're mad at the business decision, and misplacing the blame.

It's fine to be upset, but there has to be a better way to communicate your thoughts than dogging a game that has nothing to do with what their publisher is doing.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ubisoft pulls upcoming games from Steam on: November 06, 2014, 11:43:32 PM
I don't see the big deal.  The last few years when you play a ubisoft game via steam, it would just take you to Uplay, and then you'd have to click on play once more to get it to run.  Now it's one less step.

just as an fyi, there have to be some dedicated servers going on because I've seen all 12 players have bad ping numerous times.  This can't happen in the old system since one person is the host.  I think the problems are more related to being thrown to distant servers and individual player lag + lag compensation instead.

I connected to a french host yesterday...at least i think so. Everyone speaking in french was kind of a give away i think..also they spent the whole game running away.

I laughed

Eco has been temped banned for 3 months for continuously circumventing his ban from R&P by posting political comments in his sig, and outside the R&P forums.  He has been warned a few times by myself and by Ron.  I haven't heard anything from Ron or Farley so I made this decision on my own. 

He will be allowed back in 3 months if he chooses.

I'm also locking this thread since it serves no more purpose.

Finally got my motherboard back, went to go install the motherboard and the CPU.  What's that?  My wife through out the rubbing alcohol because it expired.  GRRR it would still work.  So off to the store so I can remove the thermal paste.

come back got the CPU in place and now to install the 3rd party heatsink.

What's that, oh yea, I seemed to have mailed the back plate where the heatsink screws into along with the motherboard.

They didn't send it back frown

So luckily for me, coolmaster had a kit that I could buy for $8  So now I have to wait for that.

My PC hasn't been powered on since August.  Crazy.

who started the Ebola thread?

Because that is bad form to delete a thread.  It's one thing to delete when there was a mistake/ or duplicate thread, but to delete a whole thread because maybe you didn't agree with something is something that is discouraged.

I don't understand how Dallas lost to SF at this point.

Either Rod Marinelli is some kind of miracle worker or the Cowboys D is going to come crashing down to earth at some point.



You should thank SF for the wakeup call.

I'm not sure it would have mattered if everyone was back.

I agree, but it wouldn't have been a blow out.

Do you have access to a different video card (possibly have built-in video) to confirm the mainboard? What about testing your video card on another PC?

Apologies if this has already been answered.

I have a brand new video card as mentioned on my initial post.  It's not the card.
191  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: on: October 15, 2014, 03:51:04 AM
I probably wasn't very clear.   It started out that way and overtime I stopped receiving signal.

Before reading your post I took out my video card and moved it to a different slot.  No go.

I filed a rma. They want the serial number which I can't find on the motherboard.   There's one sticker with numbers but ms I says it's invalid.  I bet it's on the back which sucks.

I also don't have the box...  frown

195  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Computer Issues (Video Related) on: October 13, 2014, 09:11:50 PM
Before my PC lost signal, my computer would start to chug, throw up messages that so and so stopped responding.  Usually a restart would fix it, but it would always happen after it being on for more than 5 hours or so. 

I replaced the power supply, so I'm pretty sure that's not the culprit.  I guess I can check to see if it's my monitor by using a different monitor...  Just got to find one. 

Would my wife's laptop work as a monitor?

Also try a different slot on the motherboard if available

Those are two good suggestions.  I'll have to see if that works.

199  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Computer Issues (Video Related) (Updated!) on: October 11, 2014, 08:53:19 PM
About a month ago I started having problems with not receiving a signal to my monitor.

I changed out the hdmi cable, plugged the monitor to a different PC which worked.  Knowing it wasn't my monitor that was bad, I thought it was my video card.  I had a XFX 6970 and it had a lifetime warranty.  I had it RMA'd and while they were able to receive a signal, they noticed it was running hot so  they sent me a new video card anyways (yay me,  I'm now an owner of a brand new XFX 270)  I plugged that in and still the same result.

So now I'm thinking power supply...  JUst got a killer deal off of a 750Watt EVGA power supply for $35.    Put that in today and still no go.  

Now i'm thinking motherboard...

But before continuing down the rabbit hole, and making my wife question me Tongue COuld it be something else???
