  1. If I format completely is there a chance it might solve the problem? Because I was going to format anyways.
  2. Can anyone shed a little light as to what Test Error Code 08 means? And it's a Japanese laptop bought in Japan and still in Japan. I'm just hoping I can explain the problem. My normal Japanese, never mind my "techie" Japanese is not up to scratch.
  3. Ok this is what I got. IT's a western digital. Test Option: QUICK TEST Model Number: WDC WD800UE-00HCT0 Serial Number: WD-WXE505295229 Firmware Number: 900.D790 Drive Type: IDE Capacity: 80.03 GB SMART Status: PASS Test Result: PASS Test Time: 09:51:51, September 11, 2005 Test Option: EXTENDED TEST Model Number: WDC WD800UE-00HCT0 Serial Number: WD-WXE505295229 Firmware Number: 900.D790 Drive Type: IDE Capacity: 80.03 GB SMART Status: PASS Test Result: FAIL Test Error Code: 08- Test Time: 18:40:11, September 11, 2005
  4. Woah woah woah...so I'm still screwed? I thought I dodged a bullet. There's no hope for my little HD? It's a laptop hD (not sure what kind) and I just bought my laptop a month and a half ago. I'm in Japan and I'm not quite sure how I'm gonna be able to take it back and explain that I want a new HD when this one seems to be working fine.
  5. It seems just fine now which I don't understand. So this morning I'm getting dressed and suddenly my computer starts making a strange sound. I can't really reproduce it, but I'm sure you know the sounds when your hard drive seems to be working a lot harder than it's supposed to be. Throw in some "clicking" and you've got it. Anyways so I go over to it and move the mouse because it's in the power saving mode. When the screen comes up all I see is a blue screen (which I think had text on it but I only saw it for a blink of a second) and then suddenly the comp restarts all by itself. So I'
  6. I fixed it! You were right Schrullenhaft it was the drivers. But I didn't really realize it until I tried to hook up my digital camera and it wouldnt recognize it (Windows XP should be plug n play) So I went to the device manager and there was a big yellow question mark next to USB. So I let it install the USB drivers and that fixed that. Then I thought to myself, hey, I wonder if there were any other yellow question marks around there, so i went back and checked and sure enough it was. I just got Windows to update the drivers itself and sure enough my computer shut down perfectly. S
  7. As far as I know we have the exact same computer. Bought them a month apart, and last time I went they didn't have any so I know this is from a new batch. I don't know if this helps any but this morning I reinstalled the Japanese version of Windows and it shut down fine with nary a problem. That leads me to believe that it's an OS problem or at least a hardware compatibility issue with the OS. I looked at the event viewer for errors and copied someof them into Microsofts website diagnosis thing but I couldnt really come up with anything. Is there anything wrong with leaving a laptop on al
  8. I just picked up a new notebook today, which I'm quite happy with so far but unfortunately I've encountered a problem where the comp crashes (or seems to crash) whenever I choose to shut it down. It goes right to the screen where it says "Windows is shutting down" and then thats it. The mouse pointer freezes and the power button doesnt work. I have to remove the battery to get it to turn off. Very frustrating. I dont know what the problem could be. My roommate bought the exact same laptop and he seemed to have no problems whatsoever. I bought it in Japan, and because it has a Japanese
  9. Just a couple of questions for you experts. Nothing serious, more like minor annoyances. 1) I can't figure out how to get Outlook to automatically send/receive when I start it up. I've found the tab that automatically makes it send/receive when I exit but nothing for when i start. 2) Is there anyway I can stop it from trying to start up Windows Messenger when I start Outlook? I've been scouring the Options but have been having trouble finding a way to turn it off. 3)And one more question. How can I import my contact list from Gmail to Outlook?
  10. I LIKE the uh oh sound Otherwise I would never know if someone had sent me a message. Anyways I upgraded to 2003b and then found a patch that eliminates the ads. Here's the link in case there are other ICQ ad haters out there You must have 2003b installed for it to work. http://www.overclockinghq.com/articles/removeicqads.php
  11. I downloaded and installed ICQ 2002a so that i could get rid of the ads, but now I've found that this version of ICQ takes up a space on your taskbar when you have it open!! I've looked and simply cannot find an option that lets me turn that off. Does anyone know if i can?
  12. Don't worry, your Flak and arty will still be useless. It just won't look that way
  13. Hitting print screen only takes a screenshot of your monitor. You then have to open up some kind of program like printshot and Paste the picture and then save it. If you want all this to be done for you, or if you want to take more than one printscreen, then you should download a screenshot program that you can have running when you play the game.
  14. lazysack you're DougZandvinasky (forgive the spelling) arent you? I'm the forum observer formerly known as Canuck and still known as Canuck over on the Military Wargamer forums
  15. Ermm I think if you go into your BMP directory on your CD and copy and paste BMP #30000, 30001, and 30002 into your BMP folder in the CM directory on your harddrive then that should help clear up the problem Am I totally off base here guys? It sounds like the "invisible font" problem to me.

  17. I figure that if I wait for CMBB to come out in stores, I'll automatically save the 8$ US s+h charge plus probably another 5$ off the internet price.
  18. Don't you mean CMBB:SE? I think the CMAK:SE is probably still 2 years off yet
  19. I seriously doubt that the guys will ever become "out of touch with the fanbase" And yes I would also love a VCR function, including the ability to merge the movies all together into one great big huge movie. And not just that. I want to be able to edit it too. I think we could probably come up with some amazing looking stuff Of course, it'd probably be too big for most of us to download but at least we could have fun making our own.
  20. Booooooooooooo. I'm still holding out Waiting for the price drop when CMAK comes out. Although it's been out at least a year hasn't it? You think they could drop the price a little at least.
  21. There's no reason to speak metaphorically. Whatever your problems are, I assure you that the Battlefront community will not assault you with any undue harrassment.
  22. So Battlefront decides to start selling the game for retail in North America. Are you saying that you expect them to sell the exact same game to the public as what they first came out with over 3 years ago?? I suppose you dont think that any of the patches should be included either. Why don't they just sell the 1.0 version and let everyone download the patch for it. Nobody is making you pay for the damn game. It's not like you need to buy the new version in order to continue playing PBEM games with other people.
  23. Well I just dropped into EB Games to see if they had Combat Mission and they told me they were sold out. They only had 2 games to start out with so I guess that isn't really a huge accomplishment Too bad. I was really looking forward to drooling over it.
