Does that equate to a social life? Inquiring minds want to know.

My motherboard was fine, it was just a glitch from me having overclocked it to much. What idiots. A simple CMOS reset was all it needed.
I don't know anyone who considers or takes seriously anyone at Best Buy as "computer experts."

AN, we are in total agreement, and I couldn't have said it better.

@Asheville Native: I have no social life and my OC was running good until I got it up past 4.16ghz XD. And I knew the problem, just thought I'd see what Best Buy would say. I figured the problem out a LONG time ago. Just thought it'd be funny what they said they thought it was.

/confused that everyone hates me

Your posts, especially your replies to others asking for help, are questionable. You seem to be trying to impress everyone with what you think you know, and anyone that builds their own PC's, and wastes the time taking it to BestBuy just for laughs is just screwy. It's not hate, we just have a higher standard here at CD

I'm not trying to impress everyone because I know I don't know everything. I just suck at posting and comunicating in general.

So, sorry if I sound like a ass/jerk to anyone.

Well, just have a look at what others are doing as far as replies, you'll figure it out pretty quick. Read the questions people post carefully, and try to provide info that's actually relevant to their problem. People come here to get help, if ya don't provide good, accurate info for them someone's gonna pounce on you like stink on a brown pile.
I spend my day setting up servers, workstations, networks, data recovery, building custom PC's, and cleaning my clients computers of all the crap they infected themselves with, and I'm here at night helping people for free because not everyone can afford to have a pro look at their computer. Giving bad or incorrect advise is worse than giving none at all.
