    the ram would CAUSE the unstable...

    you're getting errors before the OS has loaded (hal.dll) which means its a hardware problem - ram is the most likely, with HDD and PSU chasing it up.

    srry, man, but by unstable I mean buggy - not crashing out; originally, certain programs that interacted with WIN registry would lock up trying to apply changes (i.e. TweakUI); everything else ran fine. Actually, after finally just re-formating the HDD and installing WIN for the 3rd time (the time inbetween was just a re-install), everything was fine . . . up until I had some spyware sneak onto the rig

    the issue with the HAL.dll, though - seriously, the file just disappeared from System32\; and the issue didn't show up until this morn. I get the feeling it had something to do with the spyware, as I hadn't powered down the rig between cleaning the bad app off the system and last night.

    Don't get me wrong, though, I haven't 100% dismissed it being a hardware problem. I'm just trying to get the OS back to a "known good" config. I still intend to test out the hardware, too, just to be sure.

    :eek:

    no fair! I've only got one rig currently capable! If I knew you were packing that much slicone, I'da kept my mouth shut! :laugh:

    I'll just have to get my second rig up and running with a quickness, and attempt to commandeer my father's two rigs to make up for it.

    ah screw it - i'll throw a few of my rigs the SMP clients.
    I'm going to use the GUI version since i dislike it running 24/7


    edit: or not. the only version there is the SMP beta with no GUI. i refuse to run the service version since its a pain to start/stop (and F@H has a bad habit of crashing my games) so i guess i'm out til they get SMP working right.

    Wow, this topic really took off. I guess it doesn't help that I've been on Jury Duty for the past few days. :(

    Anyway, keep folding guys, and it is good to see more people actively folding.

    F@H is floating-point based right?
    If so, does this make AMD faster at folding clock for clock? o_O

    that would be true if the core 2 didnt exist but intels arc destroys amd's core 2's fold alot faster.

    Uhh but AMD rapes Intel but in floating point only. But the raw speed of the Core 2 gives them the win?

    Yeah, my E6550 has done 4 SMP WUs since Friday night and it wasn't even folding 24/7. Which reminds me I need to finagle my BIOS into posting at the proper memory speed settings so I can fold without blue screening. I can't wait until my replacement board comes in tomorrow so I can ditch this craptastic thing.

    I believe proper grammar is "you're bringing a game". What game would you like me to bring Solaris? I have monopoly, axis and allies, life, luftwaffa, and candyland. This should be fun, I can't wait. Can I sleepover?

    I got the idea from yours! right clicked and looked at the properties to see where you got it from. Yeah, customized mine a little. The black one they had as a demo one had a blue grid, which i turned to black.
