1 I think my Desktop may die soon. on Sat Jun 08, 2013 6:53 pm

My Desktop has been acting up for the past couple weeks. It will lock up at random then 'boot' for instance the screen will freeze. The mouse will not move then it'll go to a black screen then boot.

What I thought it was-
-Virus (nope)
-Overheating issue (nope)
It just happened.

-Hardware issue (yes)

I have yet to figure out what the issue is and as far as I know...The issue may never be solved. I don't have money to replace parts to try to pin point what it is so I'm just gonna keep using my computer till it dies...

The only info I have is of this Microsoft tech guy.

"Stephen

Good Luck. The DMPS indicated an AMD_CPU issue."

So it's obviously my CPU but it's not overheating. It's actually quite cool and I have no other information on this. For all I know, it's the AM3 slot on my Motherboard...So I guess I'll just have to enjoy my PC while it's still working. When it does die I'll be back on a laptop that's no better than the Netbook I was on a couple years ago... ;(

The only burned part is the SD Card slot. and is not in use. What a smokey day that was. That was at least a year and a half ago. The SD card slot cable was improperly marked by the company so when I put it back in it exploded into a burnt smokey mess. Other then that, the PC is fine. I don't have any thermal paste to take it apart fully.

Cyber Death is coming for your Desktop, Mario. It's time to let go of it. Just like I did when Guinea Death took my Guinea Pig from me. Sad

No one's going to want to buy a fat, seven year old Guinea Pig. I'd rather sell my fully functional PSP just so I could spend one more week with my furry little friend. Very Happy

They could use it for parts, and you could use the extra money to buy a different computer and continue to play games if your laptop can't handle what you want to play

Well my guess is that everything being sold will come around $550-$650 USD. If I was to upgrade I'd need
-Motherboard (the AM3 Slot maybe broken)
-CPU (Could be dying on me)
-Possibly a RAM issue. (The crash can be very rare to multiple times a day so it would be hard to trully test what the issue could be.)
-Better cooling ie Housing/fans/CPU cooling ect
-Maybe a new Windows key. (I'm not sure if OEM keys work like normal keys.)

So without new RAM and without Windows $325. With RAM but without Windows $460. With RAM and Windows $587. Now if I was to grab a GPU $800. The PC Housing I was looking at had enough fans to cool a city. If I was to get liquid cooling then $890.

So if I was to buy an all ready built Gaming Desktop it would run me $1,600 then minus the $600 I may get it'll run me $1,000. So either way I'm screwed XD
