I have been wanting a better place to live. Does Newegg have any of those?
Now, this situation sure developed in an epic way
Today is my 2 year anniversary of crunching for WCG and for TPU!!!
Thought I would share my first thread asking how to get started crunching
Hard to imagine that I started with 3 cores on a PII 720BE*
* that 720BE spent a lot time bouncing around the Team too!
Happy Anniversary Cap'n! Funny to read through that thread and see you asking questions like that. Now you're a full-fledged Capitan who knows all the ins and outs of BOINC/WCG!
I bow my head...
Haha, I actually remember them days..........I know, its surprising that I would remember.
Dang, doesn't seem like 2 years ago!!! I actually remember meeting you and Mad_Shot about the exact same time. Been a great ride guys!!!!
I shut of the network connection, for about 44 hours. wanted to see what a two day run would get me. Someday, I hope to be able to have this thing crunch for a complete 24 hrs, It gets shut down to travel around to work, and such. So, I did manage a new High, at this point, I expect it to climb a little bit, by tonight, due to a few pending's.
Well, there it is. I may not ever make the Top30 but, I don't like saying 'Never'.
Happy anni, captain!
And good WCG news here:
Thanks for sharing, that's what we like to see
Norton and I started crunching 14 days apart. LOL I started on the 5th and he started on the 19th. So both of us just hit 2 years. And hopefully many more.
Also deja vu all over again. Did they change the crunching star scale? You know the stars over our wcg badge?
Happy crunching anniversary to you!
Star on the badges have been out of whack since the forum software change- fixing is low on the priority list for W1zz atm. I'll PM him again on it next month to see make sure it stay on the list...
Damn I would thing the forum software change would affect it but that's how much I know. heh Happy anniversary to you too buddy.
+1 and +1
so my q6600 still restarts after swapping psu's (got a corsair CX 430 for 10% off open box). Ran memtest on the ram 2 sticks at a time 2 passes no errors for each. My only guess is the motherboard is failing and in the process of getting one the the forums any one got any suggestion/ideas as to why this pc randomly restarts?
Is it a BSOD or is it just a quick restart?
just a restart to boot screen and it will load ubuntu again. It seems to happen anytime i try to launch a program (ie. BOINC) or when i click on a hunt button in a fb game as if any load put on it restarts it almost.
The model is a dell inspiron 520 or 530 (cant remember exactly) with oem mobo and psu. it was built in 2008 as well so it could just be an aging mobo or blown caps.
Well i'm zero help since I"m not at all acquainted with ubuntu, sorry. Hardware wise, I'd think to make sure everything is running at stock, maybe switch memory slots, test hdd, ... I don't know.
I'd love to see your dmesg
whats the terminal command for that? also this happened in Vista before the pc was given to me, prolly started happening last summer/fall.
@manofthem i was trying to put vista bacnk on it, but kept getting a boot mgr is missing 1/2 way thru install. I've reformatted the spare drive i had before trying to install, only ubuntu made it thru a full install and then the reboot problems started happening again.
Your pc is telling you to stay away from Vista
Any chance is a bad hdd, or is it the same on different hdds?
Bad caps on the board? Is the HSF making good contact?
yes, freshly repasted. I dont see any visible damage to caps at all, but my guess is its most likely that. The psu in question was a Liteon 350w OEM which we all know is crap. Im getting a board thats tested and working from a CAN member next week so thats where my money is at for a fix
was pulled from the i5 2400 rig and SMART test passed before removal.
My local craigslist has an ad for one of these boards for $30. If anyone is interested on $30 + shipping.
The terminal command for dmesg is... dmesg
but seriously, can I see Your kern.log, kern.log.1, syslog and syslog.1 files? should be under /var/log
(dmesg only shows stuff from the current boot, while those logs have stuff from previous boots, too. So it something odd happens before restarting, those logs would probably have it.)
