RIP Drakkith's PC

    Two days ago my desktop PC died. I'm about to perform a little Techromancy in an attempt to bring my desktop back to life. Wish me luck.

    If anyone wants to help, grab a few resistors from the nearest store, sprinkle them on the ground in an omega symbol, and chant 'Ohhmmm....' for me. Note that doing this in front of a mirror 3 times may result in the appearance of an Ohmcheeto. You have been warned.

    Don't think of it as losing a PC. Think of it as gaining an opportunity to build a new one.

    Let it go, Drakkith. Let it rest in pieces. Maybe even recycle it properly or reuse its parts. No point in reviving imploded PCs.

    I know the feels - my wireless headphones I've had for five years recently broke.

    Don't think of it as a dead PC. Think of it as a source of parts!

    Mine died yesterday. Turned out to be a bad RAM chip. Hope that yours is equally simple to fix. :oldsmile:

    It doesn't eat brains. It eats hard drives.

    Yeah, I've often suspected you of having a defective power supply.

    I wish that were it. I've got some kind of sleep issue or something. I'm always exhausted. Just had a sleep study done last night actually.

    That was from Monty Python "search for the holy grail"

    I see deleting the porno cured it.
