    Are you sure it's not just that you wore out your keyboard? Particularly the W/H/E/R/A/V/T/F/7/S/G/O/N keys?

    Any opinions in this post do not reflect those of Jointed Rail

    In theory yes, but I have found the card-cages loosen up and things don't work, and if the hard disk is dead and the long-lost CD is long-lost, then the computer never boots up cleanly without a warning message regarding the missing recovery partition. The other thing too is the user is prompted to create the partition and then everything hangs when they try, or at least it did in the past.

    Their Proliant servers had some issues as well including the hot-swap bays causing boot failures or a failed RAID because they managed to loosen up. Those hot-swap carriages have an odd clam shell-type clasp that's wicked tight, always pinches fingers and causes blood blisters, but manages to pop loose anyway just enough to cause problems. Then there's the proprietary hard drives. They look like standard Seagate drives, but actually have a custom ROM on them to talk with the servers. If you replace a custom hard drive with a regular one, there are system issues.

    Then there's the consumer PCs themselves. A power supply dies, but even though it's a standard AT-style, you can't replace it with an off-the-shelf part because they're every so slightly shorter so that the regular, AT-size, IEEE, ANSI-standard power supply doesn't fit. This is the same issue with the CD-ROM and other components. In the end this makes replacing components an overly expensive affair because the consumer can only replace the components from the manufacturer.

    How does complaining ad nauseum about F7s and nonexistent farsical “historical inaccuracies” that have respectively been addressed and proven false countless times help anybody?

    These questions and more may plague humanity for the rest of time...

    I’d wager about the same amount.

    Time to pull out the motherboard, PSU, and drives. Replace with i5 9600K, associated Motherboard & RAM, add a GTX 1660ti, 550W CM 80% bronze PSU, SSDs, and Windows 10. Then, pat yourself on the back for moving into newer technology.

    As you say, the video card failure probably isn't related to your existing troubles. I get at least one a month, sometimes two. The NVIDIA forum is filled with "what up with this error?" entries, but there seems to be no solution. Don't go down a false path.
