    Good morning essenbe, Arc -

    I'm running Memtest86: It hit Pass 6 in 15hr 20min and I expect it will be finished in an hour or two. Nothing in red so far.
    I'm to take a pix of the screen when it finishes for you to review. Am I to do anything with these 3 commands: (c) Configuration; (SP) Scroll Lock; (CR) Scroll Unlock?

    New User Cry for silly assistance: This is coming from a public computer at the library. I want to change my TenForums' password (which is now ~128 bit - long & very random) to something easy to deal with on my cellphone. Darn it I can find the change password link anywhere. Likely it's right in front of me. Thanks for this answer!
    -
    Since I need the answer to my first question on my cellphone, if it's within forum rules, would you kindly post it here *and* send by email to *this* address: [email address removed]
    That will go directly to my cell phone.

    I plan to review the Clean Install details and video thoroughly this afternoon and sometime tomorrow will have a new computer!

    Thanks again to both of you for all you help and staying with me through this!
    Best,

    JDU, I removed your email address. It is NEVER a good idea to post an email address on a public forum.

    No, you need to do nothing with the configuration or scroll lock, just let it run.

    At the very top of the Ten Forums page is UserCP, which is your User Control Panel. The first category in the left column is Edit Profile. At the top of that page you can change your email address and password.

    If you have any questions or problems about a clean install just ask. It is better to ask first than try to fix it later.

    Hello essenbe,
    I know you "do know everything ..." That's very nice indeed! ... and I just learned I have perfect memory! (attached)

    Arc, thanks for your assistance as well!

    I may have some (more) questions before the Clean Install; this one came to me when I was by-chance daydreaming:
    Once I unplug the two 1TB hard drives their Letter Designations will not be available to the new OS when installing. Since those hard drives are using D: and E: I can see a problem before it occurs.
    How should I handle this?

    Best,

    When the disks will be connected back, the drive letters will be automatically assigned. Dont worry about it.

    What you need to be worried about .... the mixed RAM. Memtest86+ did not find any issue, thats good. But any sort of issue is possible if the mixed RAM is present there. Use either the Crucial RAM KIT or the Samsung RAM KIT.

    Are you saying use either matched set of 2 for the Clean Install; afterwards add back the missing 2 cards?
    I could buy another 2 Samsung for cheap money, but that would delay the install.
    Thx /jdU

    Not my place to butt in ...but ALL 4 should be the exact same.... but you don't need all 4 to do your clean install.

    Thanks OldMike65,
    I'll do the install with just 2 matched cards.
    "Butt" I certainly will consider ordering set of the newer Samsung cards.
