  1. Update on the Laptop: Turned out it was indeed the CMOS battery. Unfortunately, it's a gateway, so I had to order a proprietary one. Still, it works! And works pretty good; might just keep this and fix it up. Only $37 to upgrade the RAM to the full 4GB.

      That is wonderful news. Glad it worked out for you. The extra RAM can really make a big difference in gaming.

  2. Working on a big project. 20x30 gas station Not too fancy, but I'm doing multiple versions of it as different types of lots. It'll come in a run-down style and a shiny and new style. :)

      Looking forward to seeing them both.

  3. Had an old laptop that wouldn't work. I put it on ebay and it sold as is for the horrendous price of $3.86, but the winner didn't pay (I have a 12 hour rule on payment) so I cancelled the order. I randomly decided to plug it in just now.and randomness be damned, it's charging! :o I'll see if the charge holds and try to set up an OS on it.

      Well, back to the drawing board. It turns on but nothing comes on the screen. Not even a BIOS.

      CMOS Battery? When the battery is dead, it cannot keep the BIOS settings and may result in not booting up. Just a thought.

      That could be it. I have a bunch of those in the house so I'll rip her apart again and see if that can be replaced.

  4. I feel like remodeling some towns. If I posted some custom lots for Sunlit Tides (Is that the name.the Superstar world)would anyone like them?

      Worst case, I was thinking I'll just make the lots as best as I can and apologetically let people CASt them as they like.

      FYI: Showtime World is Starlight Shores. Sunlit Tides is the more of a tropical island world. Both are in desperate need of lots though. I'd be interested and also willing to CASt them myself. I like coloring, I don't like building and decorating. Haha

      Dangit, Yes, I met Starlight Shores. I get those confused too often. XD

      Well, in that case, I can at least start on the buildings. I'm still going to try to repair the CASt issue.

  5. dangit, too many CC sites I loved no longer are up.

  6. I'm horrified.it's taken me 4 days to remember to download Decensor. XD Of course, since I'm taking that out, It's only right to get "the bits" :P

  7. Kraven Labinos managed to scoop up Madeline, the professor from the University, as his wife. Well done, soldier. Now make babies for this legacy!

  8. I think I'm getting better.I managed to log about 4 hours of game play without any CC.I'm actually going to play it risky and see how much CC I can jam in before the SSD starts loading the game slower

      Yep, I've installed 2 (Ultimate collection that was a free thing on Origin a while ago), and I'm working on Sims 3. I want to buy the few expansion packs I'm missing, but.might find them on sale in town.

      I noticed Sims 4 is pretty reasonable on Origin right now, but I'm still not sure I want to go for it.

  10. Hello, I'm not dead or anything, all. Just not simming too much due to computer limitations. :P

      Nice to see you, and I understand not simming much mine is due to time limitations.

  11. Just as a general heads up, some troll (or trolls) from a Doctor Who website have become really petty and started digging up my personal information. I don't use this screen name there, but just in case, if anything odd or bad happens related to me here, just giving a heads up so the Ban hammer can be enforced.

      I don't know. Those pool boys have to be pretty tough to survive around here, I am sure they will manage. >.<

      Wow that's a great find!

    3. Cohzaku

      it fell through. Condition was too poor to justify cost. By the time I'd repaired it properly I may as well have bought a new one.

      we're checking on two of the big petstore chains in the States, Petco and Petsmart. they frequently have $1 per gallon sales, which means I could get the same size or bigger PLUS some fish and animals for a little more than this tank, and way less than the tank would be at Walmart (149)

  13. took some hair pulling, blackmail, murder, and Ebay madness, but.I've finally got a note 3! Not as cheap as I wanted, but still 300 less than normal, and I can pay it off in payments thanks to BillMeLater. -is giddy-

  14. If there is ONE thing I like about ten.subracting all his errors as the Doctor.it's how in love he was with the aliens. "Oh you are lovely".even though RTD ruined many things.he always allowed the Doctor his moments of utter.appreciation over his fellow non-earthlings.

  17. Getting a Windows Surface! :D

  18. So, Samsung refuses to fix the phone because they say the entire thing is water damaged, when all I sent it in for was a broken speaker. (otherwise functioned like a dream). Luckily, my $70 is being refunded and I found a replacement part for $7.

    1. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      That's just silly. Glad you were able to get the part.

  19. I've been field testing my SSD for long enough.time to start re-installing the Sims 3.you know, I just realised what sort of fresh hell I'll be in for re-installing CC.

    1. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      Yay!

      Good luck with the CC. >.<

      XD. I'll be a lot more restrictive this time around.I might even have a plan of attack to get everything organized.

      Whenever I write, people always are asking how I come up with all these names (Especially the BIONICLE story I wrote. Hundreds of characters and masks and islands to name). I literally just start hitting random keys on the keyboard and come up with them. XD

  21. Been offline because of a major computer overhaul. New Case (Just set that up) and a new SSD coming in the mail. Juding by some issues a new motherboard might also be in the running -sigh- Well, I still have a spare audio card laying around somewhere. but the modem cable socket thingie doesn't seem to be working since I re-installed Windows 8.dunno, fiddling with it some more.

      Oh my. I hope you will solve it soon and join the forum once is all done. Wish you luck.

      Have no clue what you're talking about but it sounds as if you've got the situation well in hand. Good luck!

      Hands over the fine turning hammer.

  22. So, after solving everything.a simple restart made my computer go batshit again. (Youtube breaks the internet, various programmes get so buggy I have to reinstall).I'm considering just reformatting and re-installing Windows 8 from scratch. Ultimately, the best option would be to get that bloody solid state drive, but money.ugh.computers.

      I think your computer is possessed. >.<

      THat would explain the voices.I'm thinking just re-install, but keep everything very simple and basic until I get the SSD.

  23. So now, almost none of my programmes want to work since that power outage.contemplating just re-installing the OS from scratch.

    1. Cohzaku

      Took three tries but a system restore fixed it.

    2. Rosewin

      I took my power back up out, since I have the laptops now, might consider putting it back in, forgot how nasty power spikes can be.

  24. averted a massive heart attack. Power outage last night, and my screen resolution was wonky when I turned my computer on. It seemed like my Graphics card was totally dead! Fortunately I downloaded updated drivers and it's all working again.

      You scared me with that first sentence. Glad you AND your graphics card are OK now.
