My main computer is from 2006. It has 4 GB RAM, GeForce 9500 GT 1 GB, Dual Core @ 2.4 ghz. Not great, but it works great for what I need it too. I don't play games really made after 2008, but whatever. The main reason I said it was from 2006 because this was before dual BIOS and shit like that was mainstream.
So for the past 2 days my neighborhood has been having blackouts for a couple minutes at a time (fucking farmer's electric)
I recently was going through nVidias website, and it turns out that my graphics card had more updated drivers that my current ones (dated in 2009)
While downloading them I got the idea to update all my drivers. I went to dells website to the driver section and found that I was using really old drivers, so I decided to get new ones.
Turns out there was also a BIOS update for my computer. I have the 2006 BIOS while the updated ones are from 2009. obviously I should update amirite
So here I am, flashing my BIOS while a power outage happened. (Pretty funny because I was making fun of my friends who got a lot of power outages yesterday)
So, obviously I'm like wtf. After the power comes back, I turn it on. Nothing appears, but there is a beeping sound.
I checked the reference manual, and it turns out that the beep code stood for BIOS wrong checksum, or some shit like that.
My fault for flashing the BIOS, but daum
So now my main computer I get to use is from 2002 /woohoo
Too bad I can't get my files either because that computer was before SATA drives.
