    Have not heard of any shortcut keys /combos that would shut down PC. I know in Guild Wars while holding down certain combo's for awhile it would switch me to desktop with the Combo Key window pop-up.

    Look in the Ease of Access Center, Make the keyboard easier to use.

    The Sticky Keys use to always screw with me.

    I turned off the sticky keys, and still managed to get it to reset. The important thing here is: I did it from the desktop several times. It's possible it could have something to do with the 7-button mouse. I had to assign some keyboard keys to a couple of them, so I'll double check the key bindings.

    I don't believe there are any shortcuts to shut down a machine, just exit an application.

    The only options are, hold in the power button, do a normal shut down, or command prompt :p

    I used to have a keyboard that had a "shut down" key on it. Did the same thing as a normal Windows shut down. Annoying as heck if you accidentally hit it.

    I was thinking maybe one of the key bindings on the mouse, coupled with a couple of keyboard keys somehow mimicked hitting ctrl-alt-delete twice. I turned off all sticky and toggle keys options. Maybe that did the trick.

    So, among my Cyber Monday browsing time, I came across the Logitech G110 for $39.99. I decided that would be a good time to retire my generic Microsoft PS/2 keyboard (since most motherboards don't even come with PS/2 ports anymore :p). I haven't had the opportunity to play any games with it yet, however, it feels really nice, quiet, and the blue back lighting matches nicely :p

    Now update your Mouse and your set.. j/k
    I upgraded my Graphic Card. I purchased the EVGA 560TI for a nice price from NewEgg and it was at my door the next day. It's running quieter then the 285 and no issues with anything. :)

    Yeah I saw that. They had a pretty good deal on it earlier this week.

    Good luck with playing games. I almost bought the Logitech G510 gaming keyboard back after I built my new comp, until I found out something disturbing: arrow keys are "railed" with the right side of the keyboard, so you can run into key ghosting problems. Hopefully this is not the case with the 110.

    I never had keystroke issues with my Microsoft keyboard... so hopefully this wouldn't cause a problem either.

    You know, back when I built my previous comp during our UT2003/2004 days, I first bought a Microsoft keyboard and had to return it for just that same problem.

    First post from the fresh build. My motherboard doesn't have any SATA 3.0 ports, but this thing is still wicked fast. It'll probably be a little while before I have my games up and running.

    Running a Samsung 830 64GB as my boot drive, and a 1.5 TB WD Black for my data. Once I have everything transferred over, I'm going to use my old 250 GB as my backup.

    Will keep you posted!

    Those SSDs sure are fast. Thinking about getting another one to store all my games along with Steam.

    The tweaking of SSD's is a pain. Moving the page file, turning off certain features... kind of makes me feel like it'll be short lived.

    Well, looks like i'll be out for a couple of days. Comp is booting but freezes during disk check or I get a black screen after the windows screen. Gonna try and reinstall windows tonite. If that doesn't work, I guess a new boot drive will be in order.

    Did you move the page file off of the SSD when you set up your computer?
