    I will be creating a blog post with more information on the development of Unreal Sed Mark 3 tomorrow (Saturday) or the day after (Sunday). The post will mostly consist of progress reports, time allocation, screen-shots and explanations for new features and/or changes.

    You can now report bugs and suggest new features over at http://forums.100gping100.com/.

    Having a forum with a section dedicated to Unreal Sed makes it much easier to manage suggestions and bug reports with it's threaded structure.

    I see, that's nice to know, thanks for the info.

    I don't think it corrupts data silently, the problem is when it freezes the only way to shut it down is through the power source, and I've had corrupted files at least once.
    I've created a backup of all my projects on Dropbox, and will be running memtest86+ tomorrow. Thanks for the tip!

    It seems I might have gotten it to work. I have removed the RAM card from the second slot and the laptop booted normally.
    It is odd though, as I have tried it before and it did not boot that time.

    I thought of doing this given that the last time it booted with the two original RAM cards it only froze when I pushed it to use 2.3GB of RAM, thus I figured the problem is either the RAM card on the second slot or the slot itself.

    Hopefully it is fixed. I won't as of yet work on Unreal Sed though, because I want to make sure the problem is gone, else it may corrupt the files (like it did to one of my other projects).

    It's not the best computer and is now running a 64bit OS with only 2GB of RAM, but at least I can write some code with a real keyboard an not the keyboard from my phone xD

    I had a similar problem with my computer earlier this year, I thought it was a bad power supply.
    I kept battling the problem as it got worse, and then reinstalled windows on a new HD, and no more problems.

    I couldn't say that is your problem, you know more about the problem than I do, but having serious computer problems are frustrating, hope you have some luck with it.

    Sorry to hear Ping

    Yea, sounds like a hardware problem, unfortunately. If it is just the RAM modules, you could get replacements (at the very least to get your older laptop going). RAM is cheap enough these days. If the problem is the motherboard itself, then yea, you'll have to spend a bit for replacement parts.

    From the tests I performed it either is the motherboard, a RAM slot or the RAM cards themselves. I have tried other RAM cards and it was fine, so I assumed it was the RAM cards. The next day I started having the same problem. I tried my original RAM cards in another laptop and it did not boot. If I use try the "new" RAM that I tried on the other laptop it does not boot either.

    I think the most likely cause of the problem might be the RAM slots or the motherboard.
    It isn't related to the OS since it doesn't even start to boot. The only thing that shows on screen is the screen that shows my GPU info. After that it should go to the boot screen and count the amount of RAM however it just goes black.

    I have turned on the PC without any RAM cards which should make it beep, but it does not.

    I have also tried with another instance of Windows from another HDD but since it does not even boot, I don't think the problem is related to that.
    I've also disconnected my Network card getting the same results.

    I would use the other laptop I got the RAM from, but currently I have no RAM cards for it since none of them work (and that laptop is even older than mine with not enough specs to run the games for testing the debugger).

    Yes, I am to sorry to hear about your serious computer problems. I do agree with GreatEmerald. It is hard to determine some windows issues, to the point reinstalling the OS is a lot quicker solution. I have a usb adapter for my internal HD so I can backup, and reinstall if needed. Hopefully it is that simple, or finding a temporary used rig or part until something more suitable comes along.

    That's really bad news... Any idea why that is? Is it a hardware failure? Or maybe you just need to reinstall the OS?
