Man made climate change is real, and to continue to invite people on to debate it perpetuates the notion that there is warranted skepticism out there, which there is not.

@@ After further review my best guess it's two things, the power supply or the motherboard. How are your motherboard capacitors? (Those are the cylinder looking batteries just google for more info)

If they are expanding then your mobo could be dieng on you, if not then it's the PSU. Google some bad capacitors on motherboards so you can see what I am talking about.

As far as the power supply most these days are the same size for an ATX case. If you have a 650watts then you probably have an ATX case as AT cases (Old Pentium 1, and 2's) are pretty much non existent in the marketplace unless you go to specialty websites or visit someone's home.

Look inside your case and determine how many connectors you have. More than likely most of them just go to the motherboard, harddrive/cd drives, and MAYBE a PCI Express 4 or 6 pin connector to your video card. (You can google this so you understand what they look like)

You might also have one or two going to side fans or rear fans on your case. These are the 4 pin plastic with metal inside Again just google.

If this is the case then you will need a power supply that includes a PCI Express connector. What kind of video card do you have?

I'll check regularly to update. Here is a good power supply. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093

The wattage might not be enough though it really depends on how many components you have. However the reason why I want you to take a look at the power supply is because of the specifications.

It is VERY important these days to have

  • ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91
  • Modular
  • 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified
  • 100 - 240 V 50/60 Hz
  • +3.3V@24A, +5V@24A, +12V1@20A, +12V2@20A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@2.5A

The +12V rails @ 20 amps each is crucial. These rails will handle the voltage necessary for your videocard under heavy load. Without these system components can fail.

The 80 plus bronze certified means that during testing this power supply is guaranteed to run at a high % typically 80-90%. This one is rated at Super High Efficiency (up to 87%).

Here are a couple more good one's with more watts. I put them from low price to high for you. Also with Modular power supplies that just means you plug in the power cables you need which can save you space. (The Power supply has slots where you plug it in, it's really easy)

  1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152042
  2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152047
  3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438007

Just note the 2nd one has one single rail 20v running @53 amps. I've never tried those but based on the reviews they should be fine. So your choice.

How to install it just youtube or read the instructions. You just unplug everything, inside and out, unscrew the PSU. remove it, then put in the new one and plug everything back. (With Modular u select the amount of cables you need to plug in which can save you space). Use some rubber bands or velcro (sometimes it comes with it) to wrap the cables for better airflow.

Checked out my capacitors. None of them are blown it seems. Also, I have a GTX460 (there are 2 PCIE cables from PSU in it). Thanks for helping too man :)

@woomar Nope. Never tried it.

@Realmjumper I guess I will try and get one. My only concern is I am not to familiar with PSU shopping. Maybe it's a stupid question, but do I have take measurements to make sure it will fit in my case? And do I need to make sure it has the right amount of cables

So I did fine with a new SATA port since I last posted. But it is still uncooperative sometimes.

So I have to do this online job training thing by tomorrow, and this extremely poorly designed program requires me to use IE 6 and up. I have the latest version of IE and have tried it on several computers, but the website still says I still don't have IE 6.


Any ideas? I tried "resetting" IE in the browser settings but that did not help. I am at a loss.

History major and bio minor.

Grad school is looking to be environmental policy/management or something.
Because I think it is important and that the field will grow.

ITT: We call for ethnic cleansing because of a few radical Muslims.

Hey, lets get rid of Christians too. Have you seen what the LRA is doing?

See? See what I did there? It's called sweeping generalizations. It makes you look bad, and you should feel bad.

Who said anything about ethnic cleansing? He spouted off the religion of peace but then said take out the group that did this, not take out all muslims. But of course.....instead of expressing outrage at this act you try and manipulate someone's words because they were not nice enough to Islam for you. Typical GS-OT.

Islam once again making the world a better place....

This group better be wiped out quickly. Fucking God damn animals....

Mmmmmm...can you taste that? It's irony, yummy!

So which part do you not agree with? Is this an example of Islam making the world a better place? Would the world be a better place if we wiped Boko Haram off the map? Are they not animals? Which part here is ironic to you? Are you against wiping out terrorist groups who massacre children due to their religion? Would the fact we want to take these bastards out make us animals? Please explain. Or were you just being internet cool guy without an ounce of thought?

@comp_atkins said:

people only get outraged over stuff they think they can fix easily. some parts of africa are such a mess that all you get is a "meh, it's africa. it's fucked up there"

No, people on GS-OT get outraged when they can bash the United States for something. If this were a "drone" strike that took out 10 al qaeda members but also killed let's say 3 civilians....people here would be all over how "evil" we are with our drones flying all over dropping bombs on kids blah blah blah blah blah. I guarantee this thread would be 4 pages by now full of it. An Islamic terrorist group intentionally murders 59 kids...."oh look, there's Africa being Africa. hey where can I find a U.S. hate thread around here?".

Oh damn. I actually did read LostProphetFLCL's post incorrectly. My apologies.
