Have you lost your chance to finish your first playthrough of gta v pc

Have you lost your chance to finish your first play

through of gta v pc without interruption?

Topic Started by...>>>

:rampage: " iTRiP" :rampage:

So what is your response to this question?

:rampage: " iTRiP" :rampage:

 

My motherboard's cmos battery fell out, resulting in the end of

life of my pc and my current gta v pc first play through progress, ah the

bad luck one can experience as an gamer. Don't know if my game progress is still

safe somewhere, and now I cant find a similar socket and chipset motherboard

to get back into the game.

 

Tell your story if you have one.

As long as the motherboard is the same chipset you will be able to reuse the OS so your GTA 5 savegame will be fine

Yes exactly, but that proves quite troublesome, still had a 1155, couple of years back I thought it would only be 1155, 1366 and 2011 socket to move forward for many years to come, but while I was gaming someone decided

we might need to end of life those and put some 1156's and 1150's amongst others out there.

 

And by knowledge if I change chipset the save game would be void if I am forced to reinstall

os on C where my save game was, there are methods to cure that, but I wont be jumping through

any hoops if I don't have too, and I certainly will not ever load some else's save to continue play.

 

I might Dev Console input, through to my currently lost progress quest or mission

and continue play with the stats reset to regain what would resemble a first play through.

True story, that's the exact reason for me being a gamer, the least amount of uncontrollable bad luck streaks.

um, you can reuse it in any case without doing anything special unless you weren't using AHCI before?

I give up.... Pointless thread is, once again, pointless!

 

Replacing / reseating the battery, fixing it in place and reflashing the BIOS will restore everything! Every chipset has a 'just boot' mode to allow you to reflash.

 

But by all means, waste cash on a simple fix and you can carry on aiming for the turd-covered award for 'Most Useless Thread Starter, 2015 / 2016'.....

You have your opinion just like everybody...I am a professional gamer and I have been

for a long time and will be for a long time, I build my own pc's and I know the facts

when I have tested the components to reveal dead parts or alive parts, not every

motherboard has some sort of method to fix it up again, some just weren't designed

that way intentionally. I can get myself out of 96% of all computer, gaming, operating

system related troubles without the use of the internet my phone or a manual.

 

I wont be wasting cash since I saved over the laps of the last few years since

I first purchased the now dead motherboard, possibly only manufacturer

refurbishable, witch wont be happening since three years

of warranty has passed.

 

I will be buying a new motherboard with the same socket but with a different chipset.

This is my only option because my other major parts I tested are still

immaculate, and I wont be forking out cash for new socket and chipset

witch at the current price at time of this post is more for less of

witch I currently own.

I build my own pc's

You don't build them well if your CMOS barrery falls out. Never in my entire life have I ever built a PC and then had the CMOS battery fall out. Never have I met anyone who built a PC and the CMOS battery fall out. I don't know what you did, but whatever you did was f*cking stupid if your CMOS battery fell out, it's almost impossible for it to fall out.

Isn't cmos battery only for storing BIOS settings if the power goes out?

Yes, I know even a pro can have bad luck happen to them, was going to reset

the cmos when I was attempting a bios mod, be my quest to guess how this dead mb could

happen, static electricity or still power in some cap or whatever you might think.

:rampage: "iTRiP" :rampage:

:rampage: "iTRiP" :rampage:

Yes it keeps some user defined settings alive and such that are not stored on

the state discs [hard disks and ssd's] and not stored on the roms either.

As to the question how could touching the cmos battery result in a dead mb, I don't

know but it did, I was wondering how much volts, amps and such does a coms battery

have since none of mine are clearly labelled, millivolts and milliamps probably.

What utter bollocks.

Its definitely not "utter bollocks", rather a true reimagining of my experience when this occurred.

 

If you don't believe me, name the game and I will prove you.

You are telling a story about something that happened to your PC. There is nothing of value in the text that you wrote, for anyone. You are not giving any tips, you are not asking for help. You're just.. :rampage: "iTRiP" :rampage: i guess..

 

 

 

"Well, thats just like your opinion, man"

 

NO! Don't you get it?! There is objectively nothing of interest in this thread that you have created, do you understand?!

Yeah It wasn't set to AHCI, on my particular now dead motherboard it was faster and less troublesome on IDE.

I Don't think you even know what IQ's definition is without

checking that up... let me tell and save you the effort, Intellectual Quantity, amongst

other known names for such and if I remember correctly when I did that approved

legitimate test to determine this: I was rated at 287.

:rampage: "iTRiP" :rampage:

:rampage: "iTRiP" :rampage:

IQ of 65 or whatever you are referring too, seems like the mind of a spider.

 

If you don't believe me, lets get a thread on here with a legitimate valid test

and every gta forums member can take part and see everybody els's results, this

should prove interesting.

I don't think a computer straight turns off if the CMOS battery fails/falls off, at least not anymore, Einstein.

This must be some kind of a joke right? http://listovative.c...ghest-iq-world/? that means the average

is below those top 15 known people... One must then wander on what planet's collective knowledge most people

living on earth are exposed to, then gravely uninformed of what is current in reality.

:rampage: "Spider-Vice" :rampage:

How do you know this? did you attempt to remove the cmos battery on you pc, while

it was running, the fact still remains that motherboards are not all identical.

 

 

You want to know what I think is the "between the lines" funny part

of that joke you made about those people, not by any means am I now

insulting or anything other than simply using what you provided as

an example and referring to so that your collective might grasp

the context here: Most of these people if you quickly read that page

have applied their IQ or similar cranium capability's to gain

knowledge and prove to others that they can then compute such

and utilize or enhance apon, I won't let the cat out of the

bag, but if your IQ is sufficient you could laugh with me.

So your saying you can still continue, but only when you reach your intact pc with

your gta v pc install and progression on, glad to hear I am not the only one unable to

play due to some reasons beyond control, don't suppose a console or a gaming laptop

is the salvation to your travelled deprivation of play? :rampage: "iTRiP" :rampage:
