sorry,sarcasm doesnt come out well in print.lol
I'm really amazed that your machine is actually still running. Almost 2 years on a bad PSU, not bad going eh! http://www.computerforum.com/threads/dying-randomly-blackouts.230333/
Until he thinks about all of the other garbage he wasted money on instead of a replacement over the same two years
But looking back through his threads he hardly bought any of that stuff, just the CPU cooler!
I'm really surprised too. I honestly thought it would have caught on fire or violently exploded by now, but like an old Civic it keeps on truckin' along! Plus I never shut off the PC, I keep it on 24/7 and I use TeamViewer to remotely play Fallout 4 from my schools computer lab sometimes
Yeah, the only things I've actually gone through with are the new CPU cooler, new RAM, and replacing some bad fans.
Yeah, but unlike a Civic your power supply isn't manufactured using a perfect Japanese manufacturing technique and it certainly doesn't feature a VTEC engine which means that one day it will die. I don't think Civics die as easily as this PSU seems to have. I'm not trying to encourage you to keep going with it, I'm just trying to point that you've had these issues for nearly 2 years now, thought you may have replaced by it now?
I was thinking more along the lines of old VCRs, radios in computers, etc.
This. It's the non-computer crap he wastes his money on.
I do have an old JVC VCR that I use daily to record shows. LOL
and I've stopped my dumb spending too. I've been concentrating solely on saving for a few months now.
You should get a DVR.
I have my gaming PC's TV tuner card plugged into my room's cable jack and I DVR with that.
No, he should get a power supply.
Don't even eat until you have a new power supply. Clothes got holes in them? Tough! Power supply comes first!
And I don't think he ever bought that radio.
Geez...what a dictator!!
I named my computer porky. Insult, or what
Cruel to be kind.
Ok this thread has ran it's course, time for closing.
