Elysium update

February 20, 2003

I think I’ve figured out what’s been troubling Elysium as of recent. After trying all sorts of stuff (updating my drivers, reinstalling the system from scratch several times, swapping out RAM, switching all partitions in the system over to NTFS…), I finally noticed that the fan on the video card is dead. That would likely account for some of my problems (ie chunky video whenever I stress the video card by going to full screen or doing any 3d). Contacted tech support and in theory a replacement fan has been shipped out to me.

Crossing my fingers that this fixes it (and I didn’t torch the GF4 chip during the uptime between when the fan failed and when I finally noticed it and shut down the machine).

Stay tuned true believers for further updates…
