So oh well, that bummed me out completely the rest of the day, I'm waking up early again to try once more tomorrow.
Enjoy a non-review up on the main page. We have a few more, don't worry [smile]
Looks like I need to reformat already. Something seems to have gotten screwed up in my Mobo's software apps installation, among some other things I can't use the update utility to flash my BIOS, which is bad enough. If I get down to like ~1.2GB of available system memory programs fail to load and menus/graphics fail to show like the system is drained of any and all available memory. I let memtest86 run during boot through 5 passes and not a single RAM module error turned up, so it has to be something with the mobo drivers/software - or even XP itself. Or maybe it was an app I installed or some service I disabled.
In short there are too many variables - I'm just wiping clean and installing bare-bones apps, adding new apps when I need them instead of all at once at the start, so that if something starts acting weird I can remember which app I installed last.
So yea I'll prob take care of that tomorrow too if I'm not running around getting shit done for my car. Which I hope I will be.
Dammit 8:30 will come too soon. Must try and get some sleep...
