Oregon is WET, except this year has been particularly pleasant so far.

Very nice. Late 90s and very early 2Ks were some of the best years! Amber by Natious (Silk mix) has been a fave track of mine for +10 years. The intro is long, but the ride begins at 2:38.

So apparently I managed to screw up my computer. I don't know how but every time I move my computer from one location to another, it messes up. This time I think I fried my CPU because the CPU fan was spinning slowly or not at all when it tried to start up, and I think it overheated. Now the computer just turns on for about a second then shuts down.

I wouldn't jump to the fried processor conclusion. Modern CPUs/Motherboards have protection built in to prevent overheating. If the fan is not plugged in, or doesn't meet a certian rpm the BIOS will automatically shut the computer down to prevent damage. CPUs also have thermal proection built in that will downclock or halt the cpu if temps get too hight. Not to say that shit can't happen, but CPUs/MBs are engineered with some fail safe these days.

What kind of computer is this? Laptop, Desktop, self-built, or a brand name HP/Dell ??

If it's a desktop the first thing I would do is make sure your RAM is seated correctly and verify that the cpu fan is snug in it's power connector. If all that checks out I'd test the CPU fan for functionality and proceed from there. Also try a different CPU fan connector if your MB has multiple.

I don't really care for the engine much. Its not a true //m engine (kinda like our cars ). If i got one i would definitely do an s65 swap, there are already a few being done.

It's a self built. I checked on the ram and everything, I tried a bare start, you know, one stick of ram, mobo, cpu, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Same result. I only have on CPU fan connector on the mobo. Nothing. I'm gonna take the computer to a repair shop here in tuscaloosa, they will tell you whats wrong with it and how much it will cost to have them fix it. But having them tell me whats wrong with it will probably allow me to fix it myself. I'm no where near as good at diagnosing hard ware problems in a computer as I am at cars.

Like I said, modern day version of our cars...

Yeah, I'm not thrilled by the turbo, myself. In fact, I just re-read the Roundel article and you know it's not the best sign when they say the lag "isn't as pronounced as the 135"... Lolz... But overall, it's a great complete package. Room for improvement? Definitely. Stellar right out of the box? No doubt.

As much as I like the idea of the E9x M3s, they're just kinda pigs... They've deviated too much from the more with less, 2002-esque mentality. I really hope they do another run of the 1M in the next body style. I think the 1er is a lot closer to the 2002 lineage than anything else in the modern BMW lineup. Hell, I even like the idea of the 128.

Local guy here.

2 money shifts in a matter of months. The last one cost him his car and almost his life.
