Does it fail to turn on altogether?  Does it beep when you turn it on?  Do all your fans still spin up when you press the power button?

If you have a spare video card, remove the current one, plug in the spare and see if it boots up.  If not, it's probably not the video card that's busted.

If no lights, fans, etc. turn on when you press the power button, I'd guess a busted power supply (you can check if a PSU is good or not with a cheap PSU tester - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16899705003).

If it's neither of these, you're looking at a fried mobo most likely.

Generally speaking, if you don't hear your mobo's POST beep code (the little beep when you boot up a PC, one beep usually means everything is good;  look in your mobo manual for further info about POST beep codes) and you're sure the mobo speaker is plugged in correctly, most signs point to dead mobo.  If you get some sort of beep code, it's probably something else.

NOTE: POST will fail without a functional video card, but you should still hear some sort of audible confirmation.  Same thing with RAM or CPU.  If it's missing or defective, you should hear some sort of beep at the POST.  If no beep - dead mobo.

EDIT:  I'm glad to help if you have any other questions.  I'll be back to check occasionally.  I'm always lurking these forums anyway.

EDIT2:  This is a fantastic step-by-step guide to troubleshooting power problems - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic53866.html

Getting this error when trying to request payout:

"An error occurred while processing your payout, please try again."

Seems to be an issue on your side, eleuthria.

Rumor has it that Silk Road will be up by the end of the week as they move their servers.   That is why even registered users are experiencing problems logging in.

Yeah SR has been sluggish at best lately.  Hopefully the server migration or upgrades are swift.

Well that doesn't seem to be the case Sad     I never did anything bannable.. just browsed a bit and messaged a few sellers. When I try to log in I get a blank page and a captcha that just refreshes the page when I type in my account info...

Try messing around with cookie settings in your TOR browser.  Sounds like cookies being denied.

- Is this service international?

Yes, though most sellers are from the US and UK.

- Are there currently any plans to re-open the Sign-up process?

No one knows except for SR admins.  Hopefully they will, but only time will tell.

Anyone asking for invites in this thread is exactly the sort of fool that shouldn't be over on that site. Heck I'm a lot smarter and even I won't go over there.

Hint: there is no invite system! Someone mentioned it as a hypothetical and then 50 people chimed in asking for invites.

Yeah I mostly agree with you, but I just enjoy doing nice things for people, to an extent.

And to reiterate: There is no invite system.  SR is in "current members only" mode and to respect the wishes of the SR admins no access will be given until such a system is implemented or open access is restored.

I love you guys but it's not under my control.

Getting pretty crazy on this thread.  Those of you asking for access are just going to have to wait it out, as much as it pains me to say.

When and if and invite system is implemented I'll be happy to help anyone out, but there still isn't a [legit] way to give access to new members and there's no telling when the admins will make this happen.

It's my personal belief that it should be more open, but the SR admins apparently disagree.  There's just too many people wanting access and I'd be investing a lot of my time helping everyone out.  I've helped out everyone that has sent me a PM so far, but I have to stop at some point or else I'd be sitting here making dummy accounts for days.  To keep this up I'd have to charge everyone and morally I don't think that's the right thing to do.  Sorry guys.  Good luck in the future.

Cheers,
-Fool


PS: Any PMs asking for access will be ignored.

Registration link disapeared... For security ? Server Update ?

Invitation only now ?

Can someone tell me what happening (or PM me) ?

The SR staff isn't giving away much information but supposedly it's to stifle the craziness after the Gawker article.  Things should return back to normal in due time, but no telling how long it'll be.

Well if anyone gets a definitive answer on what the hell happened please post it, or a way to get invited as a member. I spent the day figuring out how to use the whole bitcoin system that's the only reason I hadn't registered then I logged on to register and its just the 2 boxes so if anyone finds out... please help :/

Check your PMs Smiley

Did you find an answer? Smiley

invites actually don't increase security at all

(you think a LEO would have a hard time getting an invitiation?)

and they increase the probability that the person you are dealing with is a LEO because of this. Average user gets frustrated, forgets about it after an hour. LEO gets paid to get an invite.

SR admins, please keep market free and open both as experiment in possibilities and because it actually offers best protection for users.


While I somewhat agree with you, closed invite-only systems seem to work pretty well for private bittorrent trackers.  The notable difference, though, is that most content on SR is a quite a bit more illegal.  Still, it's worth the try especially after all the heat from the assholes at Gawker.

Cached pages reveal the registration link, but it appears all routes crash back to the index.  The admins are defiantly putting a halt on all new users...  It used to be simply /register.php but that one doesn't work either.

Seems that logged-in users are still able to view the registration page and create accounts if one knows the registration URL.  I verified it by making a new account for myself.  I had to manually paste the registration URL into the browser from an existing logged-in account.
