Jelco has special triple-post privileges. But he has to be careful. He signed a contract that says if he quadruple posts, we're legally allowed to take his life and VJ kit.

Arg, my computer (which I've kept on a feeder tube despite its multiple suicide attempts) seems to have developed a chronic freezing problem (rarely can make it through a startup, usually freezing about 10-15 second from when the power button is pushed). This might have something to do with a medium sized fan that popped off the motherboard a few days ago, and which I've been unable to re-attach (or perhaps related to its decision a week ago to start recognizing only 1/3 of my RAM...).

So, I think I'll have to really get serious this time about replacing, rather than just band-aiding, it. I got six years of heavy use out of it, so I guess I can't complain much. And I was intending on getting something newer for law school anyway (probably a laptop). But the timing is just so inconvenient, wish it would have made it another month or so when my finances will be a bit more loose.

A fan, on the motherboard? Would that be a CPU fan you're referring to? A computer cannot survive without a CPU fan; it would overheat. Stalling within seconds of trying to boot may be a good indication of a severe overheating problem.

Unless its the bridge he is talking about, which is probably just as bad.

No, it's a smaller fan (about 1/2 to 3/4 inch square):

The cpu goes on the left where the white square is, the fan that broke off is the one between the RAM and PCI slots.

Yeah thats the north bridge, basically every bit of data going to/from your cpu goes through that.

Ah, so that's one of those things that I need then. :(

(I can build computers alright, but the technical aspects of hardware is not my forte.)
