Journal Entry: Mon Nov 16, 2015, 3:59 PM


For the past week and a half I've have random BSOD (blue screen of death) , even loosing all design progress on one cauldron growth.

After getting all sorts of diagnostic softwear and number tracking.. I narrowed the issue down to being MEMORY related.. so I ran tests on HD, external HD and ram.. the only time it seemed to tweak out was when the external was in use. So I figured it was that. Buu. well. It -is- old as balls. So I unplugged it and went about my business.
Then it crashed again thsi morning. UUUUUG. My cat chose the most ungraceful way to dismount my lap and bumped into it so I figured urg. Maybe something was loose. Unplugged everything, opened it up, made sure everything was connected, took out the ram, put it back in to make sure it was secure..  Then went to start it back up. 
Went into the motherboard bios.. and notticed it wasn't 'overclocking' .. which I dont think I really am, but I have to set it up like such to get both ram to be used. So I figured eh. must have reset when I re inserted them. So I went through the  motions of setting it back up, it restarted.. did a few weird things.. but I got back into the bios.. and its still only showing 1!! fml
Taking them both out, I decided to try just one. I forgot which was the 'solo' slot.. so it freaked out with beeping and nothing else when I started it back up. Checking manual I went oh. other slot.. so stuck it in there.. still same thing! And this was the good one I thought! Wait, nope, if the other slot was slot 1, then this is the bad one.. sure enough, put the other stick in and it booted fine other than a power hiccup at first. one of my ram is dead. It wasn't registering in the bios, and apparently was causing issues to create the crashes. Which isn't anything to complain to the company about, except with just that one in there, it wouldn't start at all. So dead.

Luckily the company has a system where they place your credit card on hold and send a new one. Once you get that you send the crappy one to them and hopefully they go yeah, its toast, and release the hold on your card.

SO I -shouldn't- have any down time.. but just in case shit goes down somehow.. and its likely to just because its me we're talking about.. I'll update again via tablet or phone.. Hopefully [The Cauldron] production wont be halted...and hopefully I'll be back on 16gb ram.. as things -were- feeling slow and shitty for a while, especially in CLIP.
