Wednesday Night Open Thread: Testing… Testing… 1-2-3…

My new computer case had arrived the other day, and I got my main system up and running with a fresh install of Windows 10 with all my stuff including game backups (except for all my save games for all my Nintendo DS emulator games which are now lost) still on my computer. My father even installed the latest Office and some other things like Discord, Shotcut and Norton.

So far everything is running good and stable… for now.

Operation Musical Hard Drives is a success

My new hard drives have arrived and they’ve been installed on my computer so that I have lots of free disk space to put Steam games, pictures and other things. I can now finally install Mortal Kombat 11 to my Steam drive with lots of free space. I noticed that the game takes up 90 gigs to install it, but it only took about an hour to finish installing.

So anyways, I am now happy with my new hard drives that contains a huge amount of free space. πŸ™‚

Playing a Game of Musical Hard Drives

Tonight was very quiet than the last couple nights ago due to our neighbors being very loud and rudely obnoxious. Anyways, I’ve been spending some time looking for things at the Valve store the other day, and I was thinking about getting a new gaming mousepad for myself once my PayPal account is set up and ready for spending, and I’ll also plan on buying a couple TF2 t-shirts from the Valve store for another time.

So now that all the things have already been copied over to the new hard drives, tomorrow my dad and I will be spending some time tearing apart my computer to swap out my old hard drives and replace them with new ones so that I can have a big amount of free space to put Steam games on and other things. That means I’ll be temporarily away from my headquarters for a while once everything goes smooth with my new hard drives on my computer.

Saturday Evening Open Thread: Hard Drive Switcheroonie

Sorry for not posting much for the last few days. Yesterday I’ve been copying more than 250GB of Steam games and other stuff off of my old hard drives and into my new ones, and also relocating my stuff from my Quick Access library after finishing copying files.

So far everything on my computer appears to be behaving normally after doing the hard drive swap. πŸ™‚ So now I just need to re-link the Steam game paths, move a few games from one Steam drive to the other to free up space and whatnot.

Either way, open thread!

Windows 10 Virus Edition

I ran into some strange problems after updating my computer the other day. It was taking a long time to get to the lock screen, and when I try to type in my password for my account it comes up with an error saying it was the wrong password because it was a taking its time storing my password. So I must wait a little longer before trying logging in again. Then as soon I logged into my account I got a black screen and saw an error message saying ‘C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop is unavailable.’, so I checked my SSD for data corruption and it appears that it’s in good condition.

I was unable to get access to everything, and every time I try open any program an error message pops up saying ‘An attempt was made to reference a token that does not exist.’ So I tried rolling back to the previous version, but unfortunately that was a no-go. Luckily I found a perfect solution to get access is by pressing Ctrl+R to open up a Run program and type in ‘cmd.exe’ to open Command Prompt, and I used it to launch the Windows 10 Update Installer.

So now everything is up-to-date, and none of my stuff got corrupted from the update failure. πŸ™‚

Windows 10 Technical Difficulties + Moar Cute Kitteh Photoz!

Sorry for not posting a couple days ago, my PC ran into a crash problem while booting to Windows 10. I’m thinking either my SSD is going bad, half of my memory sticks are going bad, or just a motherboard issue. Anyway, I’m back in business… for now. Oh, I took a few more cat photos of my two adorable cat partners:

I guess Stewie loves to sleep on my rug in my bedroom. πŸ˜€
