Well, in short, I bought new computer parts and installed them last Friday, but it seems I had bought a defective RAM, so it kept BSOD’ing me constantly. I did have my suspicions, but I didn’t know it was my RAM until Sunday evening. I was troubleshooting my computer for about 40+ hours excluding the times I slept and ate. Yes, it took me that long to figure out it was my RAM. It was literally hell since this was my first time legitimately putting this stuff together and I thought I was just doing something wrong the entire time.
Obviously, I couldn’t get any translating done during this period, so I, unfortunately, have to delay the next chapter of YaMA a bit longer. I’m sorry.
Everything is working properly now after I went out to an offline computer parts store and bought 2 new RAM sticks, but I had to sacrifice all of the data on my previous HDD because I was really going insane trying to fix this. I did the last desperate resort of “Maybe it’ll work if I do a completely clean install!”. Note, as I mentioned before, this was my first time putting a computer together, so I was grasping at straws.
In any case, I’m going to have to spend today and tomorrow reinstalling everything that I previously had, or at least try to install them. I lost a good portion of important stuff, so it’s going to be a pain.
Once more, I’m sorry for the delay, but I’ll try to get back to translating as soon as possible.
