    A Problem with My Hard Drive


    Hello! My Dell XPS 8700 running Windows 10 recently stopped working and I would appreciate some help. At the moment, I can turn on the computer and it boots up to the screen with the date and time though it has the reddish color in the 1st picture below instead of the usual screen. After a few minutes of booting up it eventually goes to the blue screen 2nd picture with the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED error.

  2. Overclock your hard drive!!!

    Heres a much easier hack that I realized quite a few years ago that really does work!

    REQUIREMENTS:
    • Hard drive with molex power connection.
    • PSU with more than 1 strand that has molex plugs on it.
    • Wire strippers, soldering iron if you're fancy, electrical tape if you're not.
    STEPS:
    • Take the strand of connectors from your PSU, and decide which one will be the donator for this overclocking adventure.
    • Cut the yellow and orange cables, then twist them together.
    • Find the power connector you've chosen as the overclocking connector, and release the orange cable from the connector. Now use your preferred method to bind them together, then place it back together.
    • Plug in a drive and feel the speed!
    Congratulations! You've just overclocked your hard drive!
