my computer died

Postby raocow » 3 years ago

So... this happened. Currently on the ghost's laptop to write this.
Basically it just, completely at random, freezes or bluescreen within minutes of being opened. I managed to finish and upload tomorrow's VIP3 video. I have finished what wuld have been tonight's DT3 video... but it is impossible for me to put online as of this moment as I cannot get to the file quickly enough. I'm at least trying to make a back-up to be uploaded later, but, yeah.

Worst case scenario, I might have to like showcase a bit that's already emptied out :/

I do have backup of both my vip3 and dt3 progress though, so at least that SHOULD be fine.

So... err, yeah. There goes my unbroken upload string !

I'll try to get myself a new decent computer as quickly as I can.

Sorry about all this!

I don't suppose you've figured out like, what exactly the problem is? Like if it's a hard drive failure or something? I dunno what exactly your computer situation is like but I wouldn't think you'd need an entirely new computer unless it's the motherboard itself going out or something.

well I mean, I need to upgrade the graphic card and ram ANYWAYS, so might as well.

though no, I don't know what the problem is exactly. the blue screen message states that it's a hardware failure without going into more details.

Ah, good ol' ever-helpful blue screens.
I'd still be inclined to suggest trying to diagnose the problem and just upgrading the graphics card and RAM on the current one, buuuuut at the same time I dunno what your motherboard situation is so that may not actually be viable anyway. >_>

Considering his computer is Ancient, it's probably better for him to just get a new one.

Got a Budget, BTW? We might be able to help you find one.

there's a local shop not too far that gets you the same kind of prices you'd get at like newegg and whatnot, so hopefully I'll should be okay and it shouldn't take too long.

If I give myself a budget of, say, around 1.5k, what should I expect to get ?

It might be worth also getting a USB enclosure you can put the hard drive from the old computer in so that you can hook it up to the new computer to get files off of. They typically aren't that expensive, I don't think, and it can also be a useful thing to have anyway.

At the least, you've got backup data and the like. It could have been a lot worse.

Wish I knew something about good computers for price range, but I'm not good with the hardware end of things, so I can only wish luck on that. X_X;

Fifteen Hundred will get you a computer that can run basically anything, so maybe we can finally get that Call of Duty LP everyone's been asking for!

Wait a second. If that's ancient, mine must be prehistoric. My CPU is an Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 released 2008. raocow's is a 2010 CPU.

Mind you, I did recently have it refurbished for about £50. They cleaned out all the junkware the Hewlett-Packard installed on it and I got a Windows 7 upgrade. Then again, I did ask them about the CMOS battery and though they claimed it was fine and didn't need replacing, it clearly needed replacing. I had to replace it myself. Plus they didn't physically clean out the inside so I had to do that myself as well.

Anyway, getting on topic, because my Hewlett-Packard seems to have endured the test of time, I would recommend an HP. I've been eyeing up an
HP ENVY Phoenix 860-010 and...

Actually, no, not that one. That one doesn't appear to be available in my country. Hm...

Hm...

Oh... that's a shame. At least your computer had a long life. 1500 dollars could get you anything short of a supercomputer. You shouldn't need more than 1000 to find what you're looking for.

Yeah. Unless you want to emulate ROM Hacks with BSNES-Accuracy and the CRT Royale Shader (or WII/GCN games), play VR games, LP/stream something like Call of Duty or Overwatch, or really care about fast rendering of videos, then you can probably cut down $1k and be fine.

With a new computer it could be a good idea to look into the recording setup too. I'd expect a lot of improvement on the speed and such with a prize like that. I wish you luck with whatever you decide to do.

Edit there might be difference between cad and us dollar too.

I doubt recording setup would change, outside of maybe being able to record in fullscreen, unless he decided to switch to new software. Video rendering on the other hand, it would be a good idea to look into, especially with access to Intel Quick Sync/AMD VCE/ NVIDIA NVENC.

As for Echancge Rate, xe.com says $1 USD = $1.29 CAD.
