@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

I think I'll watch Godzilla versus Gigan instead

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

Oh, all the talk about GNR Mega Man names and such, and I thought maybe people were talking about me for a sec. XP

@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Things that make you go "blergh".

I got a DIY kit off new egg canada last week. The parts arrive slowly and I assembled slowly, with the barracuda HDD being the last to go in.

And the damn thing doesn't work. Lights blink, fans spin, no video output and no post beeps. The mouse lights up but the keyboard doesn't.

This isn't my first rodeo, I managed to get the last system I scratch built up to installing the OS before I hit any issues. I can usually make it to the post code and work it out from there. I'm no master, but not a rookie either and this has me completely frustrated. The last time I had a "no reaction" was years ago when I hugged up the CPU install (I hate that little lever.) and it worked great when I figured it out. I've run the gamut of troubleshooting and the only thing I haven't done is clear the CMOS settings... and I didn't do it because I don't have the parts. Yeah, missing the little black nobbly thing to put on the jumper pins.

So now I got nothing but the netbook and no idea what to do next.

Gigabyte 880gm-d2h rev 3.1 mobo, AMD FX6100 chip, ripjaw DDR3 ram 1600, and a seagate 1.5TB drive...

Little help please?

Sounds like the CPU may be D.O.A.

This is why I will never build my own computer again. It's such a monumental pain in the ass, and not worth the money that you save.

Either the power supply doesn't have enough juice to run the system (I just ran into the same issue with mine. Had to pull out the second video card so it would stay running. However, I still can't play and finish Deus Ex since it taxes the one card so much it draws too much power...) or you forgot to plug in the extra 4-pin power connector on the motherboard.

Also, try excluding a bad stick of RAM or bad RAM slot. Take all but one stick out and see if it will POST. Shut down and move it to the next slot. Repeat for all of your sticks to see if a stick or slot is bad. Also, make sure you have them slotted according to your motherboard's recommendations. Some are super-picky and simply will not POST if the slots aren't filled correctly.

Hmmm, agreed. I missed the bit about the Keyboard not lighting up. What's the wattage on that PSU?

550w. Selected specifically because of my beefy video accelerator. Also, the system itself goes no where regardless of whats plugged in. I popped all the ram cards and had the same results. I removed the video card and had the same results. Hell, left only the power supply and CPU in and got exactly the same results.

Newegg accepted the RMA, the chip and board are going back. Right now, I am unsure as to whether their getting refunded or replaced, but whatever, I ain't paying for dead tech. This ain't fallout.

Newegg is really good about that stuff, they will probably send replacements.

Yeah, it got approved real quick, literally within minutes of sending the RMA request. I got it stripped, and boxed just now. I used one of the still hanging around new egg boxes some of the other parts came in: not how I wanted to test my Tamiya spray paint... but it covered well and the spray was even and pretty flawless... so I guess the afternoon wasn't a total loss.
