comment BIOS error while attempting to boot
This seems pretty accidental. Not sure why a RAID would be on a regular computer, unless you had used it of course.

oh ok. This is true even if the hard drive has been replaced? For the windows 8 activation key, is it written somewhere on the computer? Since he bought it used, it only came with a charger and the laptop itself. No cd or documents

How many sectors exist in total in a 1tb drive? It is a SSHD also, are those less reliable then good old HD's?

I think it rather has to do with some codesigning or verification process that windows undertakes

comment New Computer Build Won't boot with RAM in the 3rd slot
currently running memtest on the 3 sticks that are in the computer, then will run on the one that was left out. I'd try and bend the pin but I can't see which way it's supposed to point. It just looks like there are two pins coming from one hole. My eyesight isn't terrible, but it's challenging to see it really. If the memtest passes as OK, then I'll ship the board back with a note stating that the CPU socket was damaged

Thanks! I'm thinking of ordering a new MOBO since it was an amazon purchase, they are good about doing refunds. Do you know of a way to test the ram? Or the ram sockets without having the memory installed?

comment adding USB support to a Designjet 5500ps 42" using J4135A jetdirect card
tried that with the same outcome. That helped install the drive through the installer on my friend's computer though. These printers are old indeed. There's a lot of them and they are great machines though, and are the only thing affordable enough for large-format and high-quality prints since they are used.
