Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
help! I may have just broken my uncle's computer (update - busted in a new and stupid way)
He got a new computer last week, and it was having some issues with Shogun 2 Total War. I was trying to troubleshoot them because he was busy with stuff. One of the suggestions I saw was to update the BIOS to try to make things play nice, which I did after asking him like a thousand times if this was okay and what he wanted me to do (we both knew that flashing the BIOS could end in catastrophe but he said do it). It's an ASUS P8Z77-V LO motherboard. It flashed, computer restarted.
Now the computer will start to boot, allows me to screw with the BIOS if I want, and then continues to try and boot into Windows (7 64 bit). BSOD ensues with the error code STOP: )x0000007B and not much more info. I'm not finding a lot of information other than maybe the BIOS settings aren't correct but he never really messed with them so unless they were changed from factory when the computer was shipped (it's from cyberpowerpc) I don't know what could be wrong. Sorry if this is hard to read I'm kind of freaking out a lot right now because I feel like it's my fault even though he knew the risk and gave me his blessing.
