  1. Like the rest. I stop in every now and then. So many ways to find answers nowadays it slowed down many message boards.

    But I just love to stop in for that feel of the old day when we were so busy one couldn't.t keep up.

     to remember the days of Techtv, and of all the people we come to know and lost.


  2. I am just frustrated. I volinteer on several boards in areas I am more expert. I can't expect you to know everything, who does. I am truely greatful for all your effort. You have forced me to carefully re-think the probelm which is a step in the right direction.

    The advice well intentioned, but not completely logical. I believe something got corupt possibly by a virus. I rule out the mobo since I configured a C: 18 months ago using the same mobo. That works fine. I will look into the error message I get when I tried to fix windows on the disfunctional C:. I will need to try that again and write down that exact error message. That is the clue since the partition is fine. I will post a reply if I am able to fix the problem.

    This really sounds like a damaged drive perhaps some bad sectors. Hard discs fail in some strange ways. If you can get a copy of Spinrite 6 http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm try running it trough it's paces (may not be worth the price so if you can find a friend to let you borrow a copy it would be better). I maybe entirely off base with this but it would be something I would check.

    It is Hard to say... If it was a fresh install.

    But when you have the Master Boot Record., Drivers, tweaks and different settings for a different motherboard. And your moving the whole already installed OS to a new motherboard. Then it could be a number of little things taking it down.

    I just moved everything I have from a older AMD x2 setup to a new X6 processor and motherboard.

    I had my old system set to boot off of both cores in msconfig on my old motherboard. After moving the OS to the new setup. It would get to the windows screen and then go right into a error message.

    I had to go back to the old mothrboard and finally set it back to boot with the default settings. (took a couple of tries to find what i missed in defaulting all my settings).

    That turned out to be the problem. Everything came right up on the new board as if nothing was wrong after that.


  3. Just a hunch. I build my own computers and just got done with my newest.

    I find that a booting problem from a older to a newer build sometimes comes from tweaking the operating system to run smoother or faster or what not on the old motherboard.

    Setting a multi-core processor to boot with multiple cores on the old motherboard as an example. Might not be a good idea on a new model and cause the same type of problem your having.

    I have learned to untweak and default whatever settings I can before moving an operating system from a older motherboard to a newer one.

    Hope this might give you a few ideas.


  4. I'm sure she will be fine my friend. Just hang in there and try not to worry yourself sick.

    She will need strong parents to help her get through this.

    I'll say a prayer for all of you.
