Windows 7: Not sure on POST long (i thnik, 3 short) then another long

12 Mar 2012   #31

windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

I marked as solved. I booted onto the OS on the SSD and had all 3 monitors working this morning. Since I ended up doing a fresh install now I will spend the next two evenings likely installing software and tweaking everything. Later maybe I will make a new post (thread) with a link to my blog after I take some photos and do a write up on this experience.

Oh I have 7.8 on everything but graphis which was 6.5 under the oldest card. I need to rerun and see what it is now.

I was really down Saturday night but by bedtime last night I was a happy camper again.

Is no wonder the stories about geek squad chargig 200$ and nothing's fixed. lol. This stuff is a mental workout and a ton of fun--at least when ti ends up well ! haha

But of course, when we're debugging in the dark, it's horrible misery, but once it gets going smooth, it was all immediately worth it.

Good work, sir.

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?
