Why dont you try to restore before you reformat?
Nope, it was definitely the magnets.
Nezumi, SERIOUSLY, you PC is a bunch of DATA trash!
just hit format C:,
and reinstall windows!
this is the only thing you help.
"9 times out of 10. I cannot help you with anything."
Is one of those times.
Would you agree it may be time to invest in a new computer?
get rid of the magnets ...
Yeah, trying to reinstall Windows or reformat would definitely help (Win 7 is good, try looking for a legit copy). Maybe your hard drive is too full of unnecessary files that need to be deleted.
Tried this part, not the rest yet. It didn't work but I managed to get a screenshot of the strange error that pops up for a split second in my processes...
Also, I notice that somehow in all this, something has unblocked my "This is not a legit copy, you're not allowed desktop backgrounds"? Strange side effect xD
Nezzie has a virus perhaps?
Is it not a legitimate copy of windows 7? A friend of mine also go a fake 7 copy and after awhile it trashed his system. Now he has a legitimate one, no problems.
Yeah, I guess this might be the problem. Should get a legit copy of Win 7 or a product key for it (cheaper).
I've dealt with my fair share of pirate software. It can be fun to get working sometimes, but after a while it becomes a hassle... especially if you have to maintain it on multiple computers (for multiple people).
What I've learned: buy it.
Welp if you end up wanting to try another copy of 7, try Windows.7.SP1.ENG.x86-x64.ACTiVATED - haven't had any issues with it, just installed and that was it.
So glad I have Win7 Enterprise edition. Never have to worry about keeping track of how many times it's been activated on different PCs, since the key for it can be used an unlimited number of times.
Wow no. What the hell is that.
Or get an untouched ISO from Microsoft Technet.
shush xp boy
Nah, easier to have one that has the loader integrated... I don't have to do shit - just install as one normally does, no extra steps and it's all good - start updating right away.
Its not the OS, it is either the HDD or the Powersupply, I assisted Nez and have this confirmed. :starwars:
Going to have to second the idea that it could be the PSU.
My old one was starting to fail, and it was making my boot ups take a good 10-15 minutes. Replaced it with a new one, and now it takes around 1-2 minutes. I'd be willing to bet that it would go even faster if I got a new HDD that wasn't around 6-7 years old with multiple reformats done to it.
1000000% AGREE! :bomb_ie:
Ok, so we've established my PC is fucked... but how did that fuck the fonts on my Steam?
