What about GeekSquad??? - Page 4

post #31 of 41
In my experience, geeksquad will misdiagnose the problem out of laziness/too little knowledge 7/10 times. I would try just RMAing your Parts until you have a whole new set, lol, and i know a part of my problem was that i didn't RTFM when doing everything. Cut no corners.

Everyone keeps saying GeekSquad is expensive. How much do they actually charge?

I went to return something to bestbuy one day, the line was really long, I overheard a woman having a problem with her laptops sensor bar. Geek squad charged her $80.00 to turn on an option in windows control panel so her sensor bar would be enabled! Of course geek squad pulled a rabbit out of there ass and said it was dead!

Just looking through the posts, have you tried FORMATTING and reinstalling vista? (and all the new drivers/hotfixes/patches one at a time, then rebooting). This might isolate the problem.

If you didn't want to format you could just pick up a new HDD instead and install to there. You may have already done some of what i've said, but it might be worth a shot.

well, i'm using killdisk. i'm pretty sure that format's my drive.

i'll try the patches/driver updates/etc one at a time, that might work

i may pick up a new hdd anyway, my gut says that or ram is the issue, and if i'm wrong, i'll return the new hdd

After looking through your previous issues on your other threads, one of the things I can suggest is to try pulling one of your video cards, deleting the old nVidia data (go to C:/nVidia and delete the whole folder), download the newest drivers, install, and reboot. See if that helps.

If this was already tried, I would suggest backing off ALL overclocks, and see if that helps. If this doesn't help, swap around your RAM sticks into different slots. Still nada? You have already tried a bunch of other common troubleshooting techniques, including a fresh install, so I suggest a couple of things that may help. First, if you are using Vista, stop doing so. Toss Vista and install XP. Only way to do this since Vista is already there is to get a 2nd drive or partition and install XP to that empty drive/partition, move all of your important things over to the XP drive/partition, and format the Vista drive/partition to completely rid yourself of it. XP is so much easier to deal with than Vista, and when Vista acts up, it acts up HARD.

If after this the problem still persists, then it has to be hardware. You said that these issues started after introducing themselves after adding another 2 gigs, and I'm sure that since you made this connection that you have tried things without the extra 2 gigs. Your next thing would be to swap motherboards. I know I know, that's a hell of a procedure but at this point you have pretty much exhausted all other troubleshooting tasks. I'm sorry that it has come to this, but repeated BSODs are going to either be software or hardware, and a fresh install of XP, with continued BSODs, means your hardware is crapping out. PSU dying would cause the system to just shut down or freeze, but with the mobo, it can be slow and painful.

Before you do this, also try to swap out other hardware, like video card and sound card. Get a cheapy vid card for troubleshooting purposes and a cheapy sound card for the same reason. If you find that the replacement of either the vid card or sound card resolves the constant BSODs, then the problem is whichever hardware piece was replaced.

If you do replace both the vid card and sound card, and the BSODs are still there, it is definitely the mobo.

I hope this has helped.
