No Love


November 16, 2004 08:31 PM PST

I received my new Bios chip today, all flashed to the latest available from Abit. I put it in and I still get the post error of 9.0. No amount of CMOS resetting / removing the battery etc. will make any difference. Ouch, more money lost. Not sure what is next. No point swapping the MB for the same thing through NewEgg. They pretty much told me they won't guarantee a particular bios rev will be shipped. I could swap for another brand like Asus, or I return to newEgg and buy a MB locally with the hope of getting some support.

(And in case you were wondering, yes I did pickup my copy of HL2 today after I heard my bios chip arrived. How optimistic was that?)

Suck it up, bad boy. Slap that HL2 puppy down on your old Athlon. Do not resist the temptation. Give in to your desires. The rest of us will be waiting for you down here in the eternal hot house, happily playing half life 2.

Oh no I won't. I won't soil my gaming experience by playing on inferior hardware. This computer has not beaten me yet. I was hoping it would choose the easy way. But it did not. Oh well, if that's the way it wants it - so be it. I will prevail neverless.

If you had just bought a Mac, you'd be alright. Of course, your copy of Half Life 2 would still be a doorstop...
