    Ordered new video card this morning.
  3. Re: computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

    Now the only way to get my laptop to recognize the desktop HD is booting up the desktop in safemode. You think it really is the video card? Should I try and get into windows normally and run GPU-Z...
  4. Re: computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

    I cant even get into Windows now though, so cant check anything. It's trying to chkdsk on reboot and flaked out after about an hour, so I did it again and it's been about an hour and a half so...
  5. Re: computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

  6. Re: computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

  7. Re: computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

    Well, it was sort of a single event but with multiple reboots. It's still running fine and I'm backing up stuff as I do it now or I just using the laptop. I believe the first BSOD file error file...
  8. Re: computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

    Well, it seemed to be working fine all day yesterday (even though I was a little paranoid and still using the laptop for work); it was on all day yesterday and booted up fine this morning. I'm...
  9. computer flaking out, any ideas on what might be wrong?

    OK, so it's over 7 years old (SkaarjMasterDuo computer in sig) and has glitched a little over the past 2-3 years, but what it did tonight was bizarre:

  11. Re: Win7 windows updates still taking forever?

    Anything I can do to move it along faster? I tried running it overnight a month ago and that didn't work either. There has to be something I can try.

    Re: Win7 computer with searching.com virus ?

    :) It worked!!! Looks like Zemana AM took care of it. It detected a suspicious browser setting (safesurfs.net) and repaired it. FixPoweliks64 did not detect the Trojan.Poweliks. Chrome comes up...

    Re: Win7 computer with searching.com virus ?

    Is that the tool or the virus? I see some stuff on how to get rid of it, but not a program to DL. Do you have a link?

    Does Pogo use KNCTR? If so, will uninstalling or getting rid of KNCTR through SuperAntiSpyware screw up the functioning of Pogo (small games site)? I don't see KNCTR installed in Add/Remove...

    Software was updated as much as needed beforehand, so probably a non-issue; I'll just make sure and use "...with networking" next time. All the links to google have nothing extra at end of command...

    Re: Win7 computer with searching.com virus ?

    I did MBAR also. I did safe mode without networking; should I go back and do it with networking? Also, having trouble running error-checking on the HD....maybe that was just in safe mode though.
