Yeah.

It was decommissioned when husband put in a pellet burning furnace 10 or so years ago. It was just sitting on the floor in the basement. Builders managed to get it out.

How old was it?
Sakiri
Not sure. Late 60s install perhaps? Pellets were cheaper so he had it replaced.

That'd make it probably almost 50 years old at least. He said the temperature regulator was broken. He replaced it shortly after he moved in.

Welp...this morning was a bust! Both the memory cards and processor where compete duds. Looks like I'll be returning them tomorrow for a refund and going back to console gaming. I ain't going back down this road again

If you don’t mind me asking, and maybe you’ve already answered this elsweyr (laugh.gif), but what kind of CPU did your pc come with and what kind of CPU did you try and change to? Also, where did you get your new parts?

I was trying to upgrade my processor from a Ryzen 3 to a Ryzen 5 but when I tried to install the R5 and boot up the computer it simply wouldn't boot up. As for the memory card, they're 16 GB (or x2 for 32gb two pack) but when I tried booting up the system I got an memory failure alert on both cards.

So if I’m understanding correctly, you first tried installing the cpu and it wouldn’t boot. So then you put the old cpu back in and tried installing the memory and it came back saying memory failure. Was that the way of it?

Pretty much. I got all the old stuff like memory card and processor put back on and it booted up like a charm. I probably just got unlucky and got defective stuff. Anyway I'm taking them back tomorrow for a refund and if something goes south knowing my luck we'll see if their tech department can work on my PC and get it working like I want it.

I’ve looked up some things and it might be that you just need to do a little troubleshooting. Apparently these kind of issues are common when trying to upgrade a pc. Maybe start with the ram since it’s less troublesome to work with. Here is a post about memory upgrade troubleshooting that looked helpful.

You’re welcome. I just hate it’s giving you trouble, but I didn’t want to see you give up so quickly if there was a chance some troubleshooting would be helpful.
Sakiri
Yeah it's a common issue unfortunately. Just don't give up that easily. I'm sure you can get it figured out, especially if khajiit is helping.

I wouldn't take the parts back for a refund just yet, I'd take the whole dang thing in and make them do it myself. I'm like that though. My latest computer I bought pre built because I can't be bothered putting parts together.

A month? Try to the middle of October tongue.gif


At least that's the plan. When job starts again I'm gonna stay I reckon. We'll see. But you know, I'm gonna pop in for a minute or two almost every day, just not for hours each evening.

Well I got my replacement PC today. Ryzen 5 Processor, 12gb of Ram (minus 2.90gb loss for operations but that's still not bad.), a Solid State Driver the works. I probably won't be able to play a lot of game that I want but I should be able to play the ones I care about.
Sakiri
That's great reaps!

Oh yeah, definitely. That’s we he hadn’t used the word in a while because “vacation” became “everyday life”. rollinglaugh.gif

Have a good holiday.
Remember this nation was built on compromise with a method to rebirth itself every four years in the hopes that the sticky points would eventually be peacefully worked out.
I think that was forgotten shortly after the signing.
mirocu
Oh, yeah. 3+1 of July, innit?


Well, then. Happy b-day, Murica! biggrin.gif

Happy 4th! Mine's been uneventful. Hasn't been eventful in like 15 years. >< haha
Decrepit
Aye, Happy 4th! LOL..I totally forgot this is a holiday until just a few minutes ago, looking out my living room window wondering why the mailman hadn't yet picked up my electric bill payment. It then dawned on me that of course there is no mail pickup today because....<drumroll>...it's a Federal holiday.
Sakiri
I miss mail pickup. lol

Feels like that nine times out of ten when you write something it goes onto a new page, forcing me to go back to the previous one to see what you're responding to.


It annoys me.

I guess. Haven't been there lately. Or at all biggrin.gif

Lol.

Only thing that gets me about them is they tend to be judgmental about how other countries do things. Like Australia is perfect.
