    Default Unwanted loa

    My computer died on me, my son gave me one but it doesn't work either, as some of you know I'm disabled, Aod has really been a blessing, I don't get out , and pretty much you guys and wt have been all I have had.But now until a miracle happens, I can't afford to eat let alone get it fixed , so I'm requesting a loa for a while , i will be checking in on the forums , can do that with a phone, but in the mean time God be with you, and hope to see you soon.Wishing you all Fair skies and a clear six.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Do you know why it died? Could be a quick fix? Just trying to help if possible so you can get to playing again.

    Well the hard drive on my Asus laptop died, its showing up not partitioned I backed everything up even did a system image, saved to secondary hard drive but I didn't know it had to be mounted so it was useless.I tried the repair utilities on win 10 even to go back to OEM settings won't do it.my son gave me a Dell studio xps 8100 with a newer video card in it, but when he replaced the card he upgraded the power supply, contacted Dell they said even though it was a 750 watt PSU, the PS going to the 2/bus bars was way off. So long story short I need to get an 80$ PSU and hope he didn't frybthe mother board.the laptop I couldn't even reinstall windows from back up drive, I tried keeps saying OS not found. So I'm really screwed , the worse part is even though me and my wife are separated and the house was divided in half they still count her income so I can't get ssi , I can't touch a dime of her money, she's a nurse so she makes a lot of money, I don't know how im going to get one of these fixed.You guys always brought a smile to my face, I'm dying doc says maybe two yrs If lucky,it just sucks I found a way to get out without leaving the house ya know.But Lord willing I figure something out , and if it's ment to be it'll be. But thanks man, thanks to everybody.Hopefully talk to you guys soon.

    alright.As a fellow disabled 'Murican AND AOD Member,I submit the following....its that time....yes,yes it is..STOP SCREAMING DAMMIT BOOMBOOMBSTICK.....


    Time for...


    FRANKENPUTER!!!!


    Yep.We all got things laying around.There's enough of You that know what goes w/what,where. Get after it Peeps.Lets build a FrankenPuter.Someone who KNOWS computers hard/software will need to step up to do the build.That means You'll be getting parts from all over the place. We'll take up a collection to get the rig from that house to the gd2go's place,after which He shall play and be merry again.

    bullshit aside.The comp is often the only social interaction I have with anyone other than My Wife. I understand the reliance and in fact,need for one. Please help a fellow AOD member out and earn some good karma points.

    I don't have much at the moment but maybe we can even get a decent rig together with what everyone has around the house. Jim I hope things improve quickly and that you don't have anymore issues.

    As someone who can DEF. relate to being disabled, maybe not as much as you but I still am with my back injury, I feel your pain Sir. I log on everyday and play with AOD and poel who are in the clan and I'll tell you it HAS been a god send to deal with people of like mind at times.LOL
    Rubble, you MAY want to ask Tidget about a donation. I believe he has a good PC lying around he doesn't use anymore.
    Don't worry bud, we'll get you up an running.

    I have a MSI K9A2 platinum ATI Crossfire motherboard for the AMD 790fx chipset new in the box. If we go amd route its an older motherboard but someone with good building experience might be able to do something with it. I also have a couple of old cases, two speaker systems with floor woofers and a couple of older 8600 video cards (not compatible with the motherboard) around. If I did some digging I might be able to find more goodies as I tend to squirrel away computer parts that I will probably never use again but think I might. Just let me know where they need to go if we find a builder and they can use em.

    Stay strong gd2go

    Wow, you know, I was having a very bad day today, and then I read this. I'm left speechless, that don't happen too often, There's a lot of things I want to say, but don't know how to convey feelings over the Internet, I meant what I said about the people in this squad , this post just proves it, it's filled with a bunch of great people.Even If you guys weren't talking about "frankputer " laughed my butt off with that rubble by the way, I still feel the same way.Thanks for brightening what was a lousy day

    If all else fails, I have a really old computer you can have. It's not as spiffy as luggage's but it'll run WT. That or I can donate parts to the Frakenputer.

    c'mon peeps.I know We have WAY more than this laying around,and SOMEONE to put it all together. Imagine if YOU were trapped, away from Your normal life and everything You know, whilst Your body decides whether or not it'll behave. Would suck right? WELL IT FUCKIN DOES. I'm impressed that so many have responded,yet kinda pissed at our lack of action on this. The guy don't have a choice in the matter folks. This is as much a matter of entertainment,as it is social interaction and NOT feeling totally removed from everything,waiting in a dark house to live/die/heal/something. Personally, if I had the $ He'd have had a new compy in days flat and that would be that.Seeing as I'm not a Postal employee any longer,don't deal drugs any longer,and haven't invented the newest thingamajig,I dont have the money. None of us do singly,but as a COMMUNITY a FAMILY We do.

    Lets get it together please-

    if someone wants to build this and needs my parts, send me a personal message, if you want to talk to me directly, I am fine with that also. if someone can, (or knows how I guess) to set up a paypal fund for either parts, an OS, or however we all would like to pursue this, I'd donate to that cause also.

    seems like this is falling by the wayside. Perhaps it'd be easier for someone to find a decent pre-built online that can run WT,etc and we can take up a gofundme acct for it. Just remember,We'd do the same for YOU if You were trapped,unable to do anything about it,and disabled. FAMILY

    I'm over the pond in the UK so I can't lend you my PC building skills. I'm happy to through some cash in if there's a way of doing that.
