    Re: Playing DVDs causes BSOD

    It doesn't sound like a physical issue. It sounds to me like your mpeg2 codec might be messed up. Does it crash while in the menus or while it's actually playing?

    Re: Beta Testers required

    DOD spec for wiping is 16 pass, not 10.
    Wiping a drive & shredding aren't the same.
    If you want wiping, lookup DBAN.

    The lower the better. 5ms is kinda standard. Anything higher can lead to ghosting.

    I did a google search on your error code. The error seems to come from nvidia drivers not liking asus boards. Install the latest drivers for your motherboard & see if that fixes your problem.

    You shouldn't pay more than 40 bucks for a good, long lasting jigsaw.
    Make sure you buy blades designed for metal & not wood for case bashing!

    Re: Effects of Dust

    Dust doesn't cause a problem unless it's mixed with smoke or pet hair. Both of those two mixed with high volumes of dust can cause components to overheat or fans to burn out.
