    getting worried

    My personal recommendation would be to learn Python. After getting a good grasp of the language, you could then code games using Pygame, or make the switch to C++. Python is an easier language to grasp then C++ which will keep you motivated to keep at it. If you do decide to go with C++ though, make sure you learn it well before moving on to game programming, this will save you much time and discouragement later on. Good luck! Edit: Wait, were you asking about different languages or just info on C++? If so, ignore the first half of my post.

    SATA HDD problems

    Any more ideas anyone on why it won't install the driver?

    SATA HDD problems

    Quote:Original post by Michalson During installation when it asks you to press F6 if you need a 3rd party controller, press F6 and insert a floppy with the correct SATA controller drivers on it (you can get them from the motherboard makers website). Leave the disk in until you are told to remove it. Also, how large is the drive? If it's greater then 127GB you might might need to take additional steps (since you also need to enable 48bit LBA addressing mode) I've tried doing that but for some reason Windows XP wouldn't read the floppy, it would keep saying "Please insert the system manufacturer disk into drive A." I'm pretty sure I had the right driver on the floppy too. It's only a 120 gig. I'm going to go over and try to fix it later today, so I'll try doing the driver thing again, but is there anything else I should try if that doesn't work?

    SATA HDD problems

    Yeah, I tried setting the Hard drive as the boot device, but I didn't try disabling boot sector virus protection, what would that do?

    SATA HDD problems

    I've been building a computer for a friend, but I've run into a problem with the SATA HDD. The Windows XP installation detects the hard drive and installs the installer files on to it. The problem though is it doesn't boot to the installer like it is supposed to, it says "DISK BOOT FAILURE. PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER". This is the first time I've ever installed a SATA so I'm not sure what the problem is, any ideas? His HDD is a Seagate barracude 120 Gig and his motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI.

    Intel or AMD (no flaming, please)?

    I've been using Intel ever since I got my first computer, so that's who I'm sticking with.(Just personal preference, I admit AMD beats Intel) [Edited by - Bakingsoda36 on January 24, 2006 11:01:47 PM]

    Windows XP re-install errors?

    I had the same problem once. I found out that it was because my CD-ROM drive was messed up, so I guess you could try installing it with a different one.

    Tic Tac Toe Question

    You're right in assuming that you would use an array, except you will probably want to use a multidimensional array. I don't want to give away too much, since you probably want to figure out most of it yourself, but here's an example: const int COLUMNS = 3; const int ROWS = 3; char board[ROWS][COLUMNS] = { {' ', ' ', ' '}, {' ', ' ', ' '}, {' ', ' ', ' '} }; That will give you a blank board. Then you would just fill the appropriate slot with whatever is inputed. For example, if you wanted to fill the middle slot with an 'X' you would go: board[1][1] = 'X'; Hope that helps

    big queston

    Personally I would start with Python. You will be able to learn many of the difficult concepts with it easier then if you start with C++(at least that's how it was for me). A good free book for python is How to Think Like a Computer Scientist. Good luck!

    Visual C++ 2005 Express problem

    It doesn't automatically include it, so you need to download the Windows SDK.

    Python Help

    How to Think Like a Computer Scientist is a good free book about Python.

    Windows DNS troubles

    I had a similar problem a while back. I fixed it by running this.

    problem with my x800 xt agp

    How were you able to fix it? Or did it get fixed when you tried all of those things? I'm asking because I'm having a similar problem.
  15. I'm pretty sure it doesn't expire until March 2005 but I could be wrong, and it makes it so you can no longer use it on your computer when it expires.
