  1. Gave up on cpu folding since my water cooling died out on me. But still GPU fold. Been upgrading with EVGA B stock cards when I save enough $$. They come with a 1 year warranty.
  2. My GTX 780 fried. Was on my other pc when I heard that one die. Tried restarting but nothing, and smelled something burned. Was coming from the vid card. Now back to my old GTX 650Ti until I rma this gpu. PPD will be back down for a while.
  3. Picked up an EVGA b-stock GTX 970 that seems to be doing pretty good. Nice to see all these old names still posting. 😀
  4. Haven't been here in a while. This is the first I've heard about Roger passing. Very sad news. I'm happy I had the chance meet him. RIP Roger.
  5. Not sure how to put up an image from my pc.
  6. Was great to finally meet a long time forum friend and his better half. Roger and Karen are very nice people that I hope to get to know better. Thanks for stopping by today. I'll be by your place soon.
  7. The Corsair water cooler on my best folding rig goes out. Down for now until I get a new cooler.
  8. Back up and folding on a couple rigs, but doubt I'll get back to where I was. On all linux now with AMD vid cards. Seems AMD isn't putting out decent drivers for Linux, and I'm not going to buy the high priced nvidia cards just for folding. So PPD is going to suffer.
  9. Looks like you do have a recovery partition. The links here should show how to use it. Be advised, you will probably loose anything on the drive. So back up anything you need to cd first. https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&q=how+to+use+recovery+partition+on+acer&oq=how+to+use+recovery+partition+on+acer&gs_l=psy-ab.13..0i22i30k1.1273.23290.0.26330.
  10. Such sad news. He was a big help to me many times. R.I.P. I_G
  11. Does the machine have one or 2 sticks of ram? If 2, you can try 1 stick at a time. What ram is it?
  12. Also check the RAM. A bad stick of memory could cause it to shut down.
