That sucks! Hope you get it all sorted soon
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?
Word, HD with CoH on it disappeared off my system, tried a restart, boot device not found, next thing I know my motherboard hangs at IDE device detection and won't finish POST. removing the HD in question seems to help it work but considering the other one is 20 gigs. Not gonna be on today, obviously
After playing merrily most of the day, new 'puter decides that 30 minutes before GG time is perfect to pop up a little message telling me my display drivers have failed but recovered, then BOOM!!! BSOD!
Can currently boot up in safe mode only, but that means no gaming. Have hunted around for helpful advice but apart from 're-install OS' there's not really many suggested cures.
Guess what I'll be having to spend my night doing (apart from resisting the urge to beat the damned thing with a sharp pointy thing)
Have spent the last 2 days discussing the problem with the nice people at Dell. Several hours of which spent with a tech dude remotely accessing my PC to see if anything was managable (and to ensure I'd not screwed something up I assume).
End result, Dell are sending someone to come collect it and take it away (a good thing, the longer I have to look at it the oe likely I am to hurt it. Damned thing was aquired on the 2nd so it's not even a month old.) and hopefully repair it or they'll be replacing it.
The problem itself is a major conflict between Windows Vista and the ATI drivers for my graphics card, leading to the good old Blue Screen of Death constantly. Ves is, and fairly imo, somewht stressed and annoyed at the whole situation, and worst of all there's really no-one at fault so I can't even rant and blame anybody.
Hopefully my super sneaky back up plan will work out nicely (stealing my mum's laptop and installing CoH to use) until my PC's sorted... Guess we'll find out if I manage to make it in-game tonight
