There was a post earier about the "remove curse" spell to be cast on the BGII CD's. Does anyone have a spare copy of a "resurrect and heal compuer" scroll?
Man, this thing of mine crashed twice during the last week :mad:
First time it burned my power supply, motherboard, HDD, VideoCard, processor and modem. This Saturday the power just turned off by itself and I can't get it to start again. :mad:

Poor soul, reads terrific. I guess itīs rather like a major electrical problem than a software bug.
However (just what comes to my mind, no insult intended) hope it helps to sort out your problem:
-Checked your system for virusses regularly?
-Do you have a constant power supply? (integrated curcuits are sensitive to voltage drops - itīs cold in Belorus now and lots of people heat with electricity)
-Is your computer second hand or a new one?

1) Yes, I have an antivirus shield active all the time.
2) Yes, I have a normal power supply - and when it crashed both times the light didn't blink, and everything else in my apt worked fine.
3) My computer is 2 years old, but when I bought it it was new :)
4) Wise people say, it was an internal failure, because I have an ATX mini-tower that has built-in protections from the power chutes. It didn't work, so it looks like it was the internal shortcut of the 5V over 12V.
Btw, this topic is ready to be moved to whatnots... :D
