    The Game Thread!

    Downloading Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 demo on Steam. Hope it's improved on 14 so I can finally buy a football game after having none for years :disappointed:

    What was your last purchase

    Got the same colour as me :smile: . Think Lollipop is due to drop in February. I've just slapped the Google Now Launcher on my phone so it's more like the Nexus phones and I'm loving it.

    So I started up Steam and it froze, Waited 5 minutes but nope, didn't come back. Soft reset the PC. Turned Steam back on, it's deleted DOTA; the only game I'm playing at the moment. FML.

    @hughesy sorry forgot to reply. Considering the cost of it new even now I highly doubt I would be able to afford it lol. Cheers for the offer though.

    Awesome. Think I'm going to buy another stick of ram first, then graphics card. So by March I'll be in the market for the card.

    SSD in, Windows 7 transferred to it, all the behind the scenes stuff done...my goodness what a difference it makes.

    So the only games I picked up in the sale were The Walking Dead: Season 2 (onto the fourth episode, been good so far but maybe not as good as Season 1; want to play the entire series again though), South Park: The Stick of Truth (9/10ths through - absolutely brilliant and hilarious) and This War of Mine (just bought, gets great reviews). What has everyone else picked up over the holidays then?

    I am happy to report I'm typing this post from my computer :smile:  It was either the case or a dodgy connection between the 24 pin and the pin slot. Since it was happening with both PSUs, it was most likely the case or the pin slot. Either way, it's back up and running and I've done a little bit of wire management. I'll have to crack open the case tomorrow most likely (as the SSD is coming) so I'll be extra careful, but I think I'll invest in a new motherboard sooner rather than later.

    Right, so explain this if you can...at each step I turn the computer on to confirm it is working. Put the Motherboard back into place. Screw Motherboard back in. Reattach Sound cable. Reattach USB cable. Re-wire cable that attaches to motherboard (24 pin one or to that effect). Dead. Remove wire and reattach, ensuring it is secure. Dead. Remove entire Motherboard, all wires again except for essential. Works again! So my attempts at re-wiring seemed to kill it. Dodgy motherboard connection for the 24 pin wire? (I keep calling it that, its the thick essential wire).  Going to repeat the steps above but attempt re-wiring it at stage 2 instead of screwing the mobo back in.

    Removed it from case, removed all wires except for what is absolutely necessary... AND IT TURNED ON. Something in the case touching the motherboard causing it to short? Looks like I'm in for an evening of slowly adding things to find the cause of the problem.

    Unplugged during the "operation". Only have 1 stick of 4GB Ram so can't really test that, unfortunately. No button on mobo to reset it (was a fairly cheap motherboard) and yeah, made sure the cables are in the right places. When I was re-wiring I did it wire by wire and I've cross-referenced with the motherboard manual. And yeah, fan plugged into the CPU fan header (visibly moves 2mm when i turns on for 0.1 of a second). I'm going to keep playing around with it tonight. Since the motherboard was the cheapest part of the build I wouldn't be surprised (and it was what killed my last PC). I'm thinking when I was fiddling around I might of at some stage now grounded myself or something. So annoyed. EDIT: Haven't tried removing the CMOS battery, will do that just now. It's a ASUS P8H61-MX/USB3 S1155 Intel H61 DDR3 mATX
