post #1001 of 2630
I tried out out both templates that i was given, rebooted system, both times system would finish half way on POST then just shut down . Does this mean I have a bad CPU batch? Tired going to bed, post more info in the morning

It is indeed very frustrating. That's why I hate fixing PC's to make some extra cash. I rather not make the money than deal with slow PC's.

That just reminds me of what happened to me this past weekend. I took a co-workers Dell laptop home to migrate to Win7 from Vista. It had a C2D processor, 4gb of memory and all that stuff, but it was ungodly slow because it was never maintained.

I've been use to 10-12 second boot times, and when I was working on the laptop, it was like watching paint dry!

...and I didn't even make any money because I feel weird charging co-workers for things like that. I can't justify $40-60 bucks for making a backup image, inserting Win7 CD, and defragging the system.

Did a bit of research on the WD Raptor vs WD Black 1TB and I found that the difference in speed is so minimal you can hardly tell. Now I'm considering two of these drives for a Raid0 Setup for applications and stuff and wanna save my money by buying the "Bare Drives" and using the TLER (Time-Limited Error Recovery) Tool to enable the TLER setting on the drives...... I'm told this tool sends the effect to all connected drives would that mean my SSD would be in danger or would it only effect the WD drives?

Really, that's kinda crazy, I have heard nothing bad about the Blacks though. Good luck and that's a interesting find.

Don't take any of this to the bank but...

I almost surely remember reading that 1TB WD Blacks were not ideal for RAID 0.

I never got into folding. Crunching is already enough heat in my room. If I had a dedicated PC room I would def. be folding right now.
