Can you or anyone else confirm this? I know they're not very expensive but there's no reason why mine should be going out so soon.

Your right.. it shouldn't go out so soon. But we all know hardware and one day it can work great and the next day its dead. Either way I would replace the battery just to be safe..also never hurts to have a new battery if it isn't the problem. Plus once you rule out the dead battery idea... you can trouble shoot else where.:toast:

Well I guess I'll start looking around for one. You know what will happen if it dies on you?

If you have a DMM you can test the output voltage of the battery

I have no multimeter but I do have this old thing. Does it have the correct voltage setting/range/whatever option on there for it?

If i remeber correctly, those batterys put out 1.5V if its lower than 1V then replace

*EDIT*

I got so irritated at how loud the stock cooler sounds on the HTPC (5400RPMs YIKES) that i used a fan controller to slow the speed all the way down to 1200RPMS but @ 3.2ghz it got so hot that it BSODed :(

SO i put it back to stock clocks and lowered the stock voltage from 1.32V to 1.22V and then ran Prime95 on max heat to see what the temp would get to and if it was going to be stable and im quiet impressed on the temps. it topped 70+ deg when it was @ 1.4v 3.2GHZ but at 1.22v it didnt break 52 deg

I just reinstalled Win7 after about an 8 month run on the old install. Everything went without a hitch except one little problem. Here it is, a visible "System Reserved" partition, it annoys the living crap out of me:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/6418/problemo.jpg
There's nothing in there, I have no idea why it made that partition. Should I try to get rid of it? Also, that floppy drive has always been visible but I have no floppy drive installed. That also annoys me.

there be atleast 85 files in that partition

That looks like a really sweet deal Jebus. Back when I was putting my rig together I ordered 2 LG 22X burners at like $26 shipped each. One's in the case now, the other sitting in the closet. Both are excellent drives, never had a single problem with them.

Go into your bios and disable floppy device and it will dissapear

It turned out that my boot failures were being caused by an OC I left in the BIOS a while back. It was only at 3.6GHz but something's not enabled or disabled because it doesn't work. I was able to disable the floppy drive so it's gone. A CD drive is still showing up though, it's not in device manager to disable. It also turns out that the 100MB "System Reserved" partition has some boot and diagnostic stuff on there. I think I can get rid of it but there's no real reason to.

I read something about enabling "ACHI" mode for the hard drives instead of native IDE mode, or something like that, and that it increases HDD performance. Does anyone know anything about that?

A virtual drive is usually the extra drive you see in your window. I use daemon tools and alcohol 120 but limit it to 1 drive

Whoops yeah. PowerISO was putting that extra drive there, thanks for the reminder. It was set to emulate one drive at the moment, I disabled it.

Yes, I run poweriso as well. But I make a point to mental note the virtual drive letter E:... Good call (FIH) The Don.

But soylent...didn't you say it was a fresh windows 7 install? If so the virtual drive should not have been there unless you installed PowerIso after the fresh Win7 install.
