Just how many computer do you have because in one of the pictures I saw a lot of them on a shelf

But very nice work ——> you must enjoy what you are doing <—— keep up the good work

I appreciate you for putting affordable computer system together for people in this pandemic and the hardships that people are facing “ Thank You ”

I find your comments about problems that you run into that take a long to figure out [ a waste of time ]
Very funny I have had the same thoughts a few times myself

I really don't know. What was shown on that shelf isn't even the tip of the iceberg. There's gotta be over 100 of them around here....they breed at night, along with monitors & keyboards... Some of the more useless/bad systems I've been dismantling and ebaying or recycling...otherwise this stuff will run you out of your own shop!

When the panic set in, I sold every laptop I had, and finally started selling desktops when the laptops ran out. I got to the point I had no more decent desktops available/ready that I lent out THIS BUILD to a customer that needed a pretty powerful workstation with multi monitor support.... It worked for several months while the customer gathered the funds for a more modern build, and I got the hobbyist build back when the new one was ready. It kinda made me smile inside a little knowing that something that was built to be a time-wasting toy ended up helping some in need.

Then again, I've seen a lot of good people come and go ever since I joined here.

He hangs out over at Vogons.

If you got "0x0000000A", then it probably is a failed CPU, FYI, unless it was an unstable CPU overclock.

Loss of RAM stability, OTOH, is likely to be "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA" or "BAD_POOL_HEADER" (Possibly 0x0000008E as well)
