Unfortunately, my computer is KIA, and right as I was about 2 days from releasing Broken Steel and V8.2... More info below.

My problem has been FIXED, it was a malfunctioning PCI-E slot, which my WIFI card to freeze the computer. How this happened, I have no idea.
Now my graphics card went belly-up... I'm spending $450 upgrading almost every component of my PC, besides the motherboard and CPU, and I can't do any gaming until then, so scratch Reborn patches being released next week, it'll be at least 3 days before the PC is back and gaming.
Yesterday, my computer stopped working. It just froze in a game, and when I restarted, it got worse: I couldn't even load a game without hanging. From there, it got worse over the course of several hours, soon I couldn't boot it up without a 50% chance of it freezing on startup. I tried everything, but in the end, I got fed up and re-installed Vista, hoping to wipe away the issue, if it was software related.
Nope, no luck there, so I'm forced to conclude that it's a hardware issue. Since I am rather poor, I'm hoping that it's something cheap, although that's a bit of an oxymoron when it comes to computers.
On the plus side, my important files HAVE been backed up (that includes the new Reborn stuff), so as soon as I get my PC back up and running, it will be less that a week before new content comes out.
Till next time,
