Hi I'm Shykal or Shy.
I'm Madrias' significant other, He's also my 'go to' person when I'm having a problem with my computer or I have a question and need help, and thanks to him I'm not as computer illiterate anymore.
I'm a part time cleaner.
I'm also an artist, I paint and draw.
I game a little, though have a brother that's trying to get me to game more, but when he's sitting behind me and saying things like "You go 'around' the wall Shy, not through it." or "You're in the bush again." and laughing at my lack of coordination at that moment I wonder why he bothers. It's not that I'm not coordinated I'm just bad if I don't have a game controller in hand. Sit me in front of a PS2 or PS3 and put in a Need for Speed game and I can kick some butt, to the point my brother quit playing NFS with me.

OMG, it's a girl...ON THE INTERNET!!! *screams* Anyway, Hi! Welcome, and yes, get minecraft. You brother will seethe in jealous rage at your awesome new game!

Man is capable of as much atrocities as he has imagination.  
People are, well, only human. We know that. The rule of law is borne out in identifying, condemning, and punishing those who violate the standards on which we all agree. This is exactly what we do in America.

Sleinous Welcome back, did you get the internet sorted out? :)

Thanks Sleinous. Unfortunately not, I'll know by Friday, we've cutback and budgeted a bit, if all the bills get paid there won't be anything left.
 
farthestkrisand if madrias already hasnt told you ... BUY MINECRAFT!

Madrias hasn't, though what have you done to him, he's so addicted I spend half my time talking to air and no not between his ears... though occasionally I wonder... moving on, I'd get Minecraft if I could, I had a look the other day it locked up my computer I got the ol' 'not responding' treatment, was my laptops favorite thing to do it's now currently my mouse pad in the relaxed set up I have.
 
Back on topic though, thanks for the welcome and I hope to still be here after friday.

This made me lol. Thanks for the welcome.
 
I can't buy Minecraft right now, I'm playing the free version, I know likely lame to do so but it's all I can manage at the moment, Good for practice though due to my lack of coordination and remembering which key does what, I'm a goof that way.

Hi all, Eddie from South Jersey. I'm 56 and probably a little older than most here. I enjoy gaming but I'm mostly just a technology junkie. I just built my first new rig in quite some time. Boy have things changed since my last build. But I have been building systems off and on since the i386 and DOS days. My main hobby is riding my Harley and I love salt water fishing. I'm a retired Firefighter so I have plenty of time to play with my toys. I love this site. I already received great advice for my EVGA 460 SE and look forward to learning more and hopefully eventually contributing.

Hello everyone my name is Peter,
I'm and a Student in Computer tech Configuration and Analysis and I will also be doing system networking most likely with the intention of getting a career in the computer industry.
 
Education aside, I'm a bit of a gamer. I love Halo, *points to my Halo armor sig* Feel free to ask about my armor or more pics.
I'm into alot of PC games as well, League of Legends, Portal, Age of Empires 2, Starcraft 2, Bioshock, etc.
 
I also have this little obsession of wanting to work with computers, just because.
I like building and testing machines even if I have no use for them (I just bought a EVGA GTX 560 even though its probably overkill) 
 
I'm looking forward to talking tech with you guys on these forums!

Guess I should introduce myself. My name is Cody and I am from Saskatoon, SK, Canada. I am a currently taking my first year apprenticeship for Professional Cooking and working at a place called the "Saskatoon Club"; a premier private business club (where I work as a cook).
 
I just finished building a full murderMod TJ07 (complete with sLight, front panel, and serpentine top grill) but have pulled it apart for need of money and to start something new :)

I'm a nub, whos Graphics cards went t*ts up.  Thats why I am here, 
Running a P5E-N Mobo, and it HAD 2 x 512MB 8600 GS Nvidia cards, my PSU is 400W and Its a quad core Q6600, wit 3GB RAM.  Been fine and dandy for 3 years and now Poof, both cards in 48 hours...  Is it my Mobo, PSU or just Eve Online's Captains Quarters that ate my cards...  And I am certified Dust free!

Welcome to the forums calamity! Hmmm. First thing that comes to mind would be your PSU. What make and model is it if you dont mind telling us? Also have you overclocked any of your components at all? How many hard drives do you have?

Re:The official EVGA Introduce yourself Sticky! 2011/04/26 09:25:49 (permalink)
I think its a cheap and nasty for OEM use FSP I think 400w PSU, nothing overclocked as far as I am aware, and only one HD drive, with a dvd and card reader oh and the pretty blue fans x 3.  It happened on Saturday, whilst I was trying out some new features of my favourite game, one card immediately went on the fritz, so I got the PSU checked out as I had power but didnt and no beeps. That seems to be ok.  Then I swapped it from Dual card SLI to Single Card with a little thingy on the mobo (can you tell I am a girl yet! ) and put the other card back in and it all worked again for around 36 hours. Now the other has gone. I dont want to be buying cards and frying them!
So anything else I can try to check it out would be good.
Thanks in advance....

Re:The official EVGA Introduce yourself Sticky! 2011/04/26 10:05:27 (permalink)
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I got really side tracked haha. What I would suggest to you is to make a new thread in the general discussion section and maybe copy and paste your info that you just told me over to there so other people can read this as well.
 
In my opinion it is most likely your power supply going bad on you! A 400 watt low end psu through a q6600 quad core low end SLI system and the other things you have IMO would probably be pushing the limit for power with 400 watts. I could be wrong though! Thats why I think you should make a new thread about it!
 
You will get a lot more people's opinions that should help you out a lot. Their are ways to test system components but I think we should get some other opinions as well before we put you through the hoop of testing stuff haha

Oh I never noticed this thread existed. I guess I never introduced myself.
Ok, I will keep my real name private but I live in Portland, OR. but originally from France. I work as an engineer in the semiconductor industry but really wanted to be a pilot in the air force. I travel quite a bit for my work visiting customers who are all too familiar to you guys hardware enthusiasts.
 
Cheers.
