    Well, I'm pretty sure at this point, I lost everything on two hard drives, one, a 150GB Velociraptor 10k rpm drive, and the other a 1TB storage drive that I had slammed full of stuff (music, movies, games, midi instruments, you name it.

    The two hard drives and the DVD burner are all three now non-functional. :( I've tried everything. Checked all the SATA cables and power cables (swapped out for different ones) checked bios settings etc... Nothing. These drives are dead in the water.

    I guess when the PSU went out, it surged and took the hard drives with it....

    I wonder if I could use some kind of data recovery service... Probably expensive as hell eh?

    The good news though, is my motherboard, cpu, memory, new video card, new PSU, and new SSD are all working and up and running... I'm currently creating a win10 install thumb drive with my laptop to install on the SSD. Now I just need to run out (again) and buy a new storage drive and a dvd rom/burner...

    Computers... Ain't they fun?
    ah man that sucks :/ I feel you pain. it happened to me .

    I am still holding on to my 810! I've been lurking around and checking the WC archives for anyone using W10 on 810. I'm itching to see if it's safe to use the insider builds now for 810, using it as daily driver
    to be honest everything works..... minus glance and somethings the camera crashes with the most recent build.

    I feel ya man! Lost 16 years worth of data when my 250GB external HD stopped working.

    I love the Sony MDR 7506 headphones and the FiiO Q1! The sound is absolutely amazing. I spent most of the evening listening to .FLAC files in VLC, and I heard my music in a way I never had before. Cymbals are a thing! The crash and ride never sounded so clear.

    The FiiO is so easy to set up too. It was just plug and play. There was no need to look for drivers on their website. It also worked flawlessly with both my Nexus 7 2013 tablet and my Moto X Pure Edition using VLC. I'm not using the bass boost on the FiiO with the Sony's, since I prefer a flat sound; I trust the engineers to have mastered the recordings properly in professional studios, and how it sounded on the CD is how it was supposed to sound. I have a lot of .FLAC files, since I use Exact Audio Copy to rip my CDs.

    The Sony's are so lightweight and comfy too. The padding on the top is awesome. The headphones do not hurt my head at all, and the padding on the ear pieces are comfy as well. They do not make my ears sore listening while wearing earrings or glasses.

    I'm so happy I got both of these items! I am literally blown away by the quality of the sound, since I'm hearing music in a way I never have previously.

    Just an idea of how small the FiiO is. I wear size 8 gloves.

    Morning gang.. I'm up working on reinstalling some of my programs etc.

    Btw, I didn't have ANY problem doing a clean install of Win10 on my new SSD. It asked me to sign into my MS account during the install, and installed the full 64bit Pro fully activated via digital entitlement.

    I'm trying to get used to the sound of this SSD in my desktop.... there isn't any! lol

    And got the latest GeForce drivers all up to date for the GTX 970... Yaaaayyyy I can finally play Call of Duty Ghost!!! (I bought this game when it came out way back when, but couldn't run it because the video card I had wasn't directX 11 capable)

    Now I can run these new titles! Woot!

    Good to hear it. I need to do some data cleaning on my PC but haven't made the time. It's a weekend project level data cleaning, as i have some serious duplicate files and need to back up my music externally. I'm running an older board so transfer speeds aren't great, but for a dual core AMD from 6 years ago, she runs well...

    What you had sounded kind of serious. Hope you get well soon.

    I've somehow avoided getting sick even though everyone around me has been.

    Good for you. It was serious. And my work schedule the next two weeks is killer. What to do indeed...
