Despite losing access to my google account last night, necessitating putting my old OS back in temporarily, it looks like everything new is back up and running. Just finished calibration and am getting my tablet/art programs kicking again. Gaming is back online, and now I can finally use all of my ludicrous amounts of ram that I paid through the butt for :D I am still awaiting my NEW new mouse, as the one I just purchased turned out to not be new, but a broken refurb. (Lesson learned, order from Razer. Always. Never some seedy electronics shop because it was twenty bucks cheaper. There is always a catch.) Turns out my poor computer had MPD because of that old hard drive I had in it. Improperly partitioned, The Beast was trying to run two disparate copies of windows at once, causing ID issues with the motherboard and driver explosions on the regular. SO. Hah. Ftttt. New hard drives and new copy of windows in place.
I’m e x h a u s t e d. But that’s okay. PPS: Someone remind me to replace my 25mm internal fan? By the time last night’s misadventures were complete I just wanted windows to stop updating so I could go to bed.
