    Did you try the chip with the pin missing? CPU's still work even if some of the pins are missing, depends which pins though.

    I don't know how big a memory stick you need, wiki says at least 256MB. I thought you needed at least 4GB or summat, but seems not :eek:

    Yeah i tried the cpu again in the slot after it broke i also tried the foil trick too. Its a no boot. Probably could stick it on ebay for spare/repairs but never thought it was worth my time.
    I think i had told someone in the clubhouse about the chip before like a few weeks ago.

    Im thinking since USB memory sticks are so cheap why not try readyboost. Just need to buy a cheap stick. My 4gb stick is used as a memory card for my 360.

    Also looking for some budget headphones made a thread if anyone has recommendations.

    Thats the fastest ive ever had a package delivered by Royal Mail. Generally im lucky with RM i get all my parcels fast and intact. My house gets a lot of spam mail though i think most houses do these days.

    EDIT: My new postman is a joke though i dont know what shifts he gets but he never delivers at the same time it can be anytime during the day up till even 3pm! My old post man was there every day at the same time more or less.

    I had someone call me about my 5850s on gumtree last night.

    Little bitch was complaining about paying £240 for both of them. When i mentioned that the cooler had twin turbo pro's on them he asked me to take them off and just sell him the naked cards to him cheaper as he was going to watercool them anyway.

    So i hung up the phone.

    Good new everyone, those servers with 44GB of ram will in fact be running a 32 bit version of windows, only wasting just over 9/10th's of it

    Not bad, considering I'm about as far away from you as I can get!

    they have decided they will wait six months before they do any virtulization and as such, are having to run the machines in the mode they need for compatibly

    EDIT: New AVATAR, we really need to resync, i'm thinking something strange or unusual this time, something the NON-UK'ers won't recognize

    x64 is not less compatable with software! only the drivers are a little picky but if the systems are new-ish then they should have no troubles...
    some IT experts.... im sure all of us could do an amazing job in comparason to them...

    Stories from the Gumtree

    So i just checked my emails and i got one from a guy replying to my ad on gumtree..

    "item for sale?" he said

    so I replied - "No I put them up on gumtree with a price tag on them because I wanted to show off"

    you can tell straight away someone like that is most likely to be foreign :laugh::laugh:

    I included a nice sales pitch if i do say so myself
