i was wondering, i got a load of old stuff on my old (broken) HDD, would it be safe to copy it over? I remember last time i did that, it all got corrupted. And uh, anyway to retrive my firefox bookmarks from the old drive without dual booting (in firefox you can make a backup but thats no use to me)?
still gettiing blue screens with the ram if i set it to 1066 :S
I agree with Slappa that perhaps the northbridge (chipset) voltage needs to be increased a bit. However, I do not know whether or not that would help make it faster.
Regarding whether or not it would be safe to copy it over: I am not sure at all. I mean, if it got corrupted last time, then either the memory made it corrupt (due to instability from lack of voltage or something), or the HDD itself made it corrupt.
But regarding the bookmarks, here's what you can do:
- In Firefox, press Ctrl+Shift+B, or open the Bookmarks menu and choose "Organize Bookmarks..."
- Click "Import and Backup"
- Choose "Import HTML..."
- Click Next (or press Enter)
- In this dialog box, put the cursor in the location bar at the top and copy/paste this into it: %appdata%\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles and then press Enter.
- In the location bar again, change just the drive letter to the drive letter of the old hard drive, and then press Enter.
- Now, open the folder with ".default" in the name. If you have more than one folder, then open the folder you know you want to go into (that is, if you've made a new profile).
- Double-click the bookmarks.html file, and then you should be done.
- Restart Firefox and check the bookmarks.
If this didn't work, then we'll try a different way.

It is Corsair's CM2X2048-8500C5. Here's the memory on ZipZoomFly: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=10009122
, and here's a Corsair PDF document on it: http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/T...096-8500C5.pdf
