Hello everyone.


I'm Volanz. I am a WOW 2.4.3 privet Server Administrator. I have been working/volunteering for WoC for about 7 years and have had enough PC problems to know how to fix them. I built my game rig from stuff i found in the trash........

" Trash you say?!?......wtf " Yes, trash. I know how that sounds but everyone must operate within their personal budgets.


Here is a Speccy screenshot (providing url images are allowed)



OK great... ^^ They work here.


It is an old HP i found and runs great. My temps are high but that is due to all the dust.


About a year ago I was involved in an auto accident where a local transit Trolley (Light Rail Passenger Vehicle) lost it's breaks and rammed the rear of my truck.  The following civil suit payed out a few grand but it still my back has yet to heal.


Anyway, I went out a picked up a New Laptop. It is running win 8 and I'm still trying to get acquainted with this "new to me" OS. <speccy below>




So you can see I've jumped ahead about a lightyear in technology. I'm finding all this "idk /crap running and I'm unsure what is good and what is bad. Normally I would kill anything I did not install.

With my HP rig i have a HP-Win 7 install disk.

Giving me the ability to reformat at the drop of a hat. Also the HP has 3 Sata drives (+2 other 1T dives not shown) that I would store my data & stuff and pop out before I would do any drive/OS work. 

Simple right.....


So now I do not have that option as far as I know. Yes i can still utilize the external drives but it seems that "Dell" does not supply a Win* reinstall disk nowadays.

Not that a disk would help with this laptop......< no optical drive >  ( what was I thinking!! /cry)


So now that my known paths for recovery are now unknown. I am starting to investigate these running processes that I'm unfamiliar with.


So here I am, returning to my quick source of good information. The only difference is that this time round I figured I may as well sign up and see if I might be of some help to your community.


In a sort of Thank You for the years of "nonmember" consumption of your Communities Public Information.


Again, Thank You.
