  • J. Madsen - Not the bullet proof mother board my ASUS Rampage III was

    I have very mixed feelings about this mother board. When it is running it is AWESOME but when it does not boot with full USB recognition of plugged in USB devices it is HOARRABLE. I made my purchase in 3 February 2015. My issue is that about 75% of fresh boots, after powering down for the day, one or more USB devices - the keyboard or mouse or one of my hard drives ore combination of these is not recognized. It is quite random as to which USB device is not recognized, although lately it is usually the keyboard. I have other desktop and laptop computers and have verified that all my USB devices are working as they should and i have also changed USB cables to make sure there is not USB 3.0 cable problems. The only solution is to re-boot, re-boot, re-boot and finally the keyboard or other device is recognized. I cant tell you what a pain this is - I have spent many hours with ASUS tech support on this issue with no effective results. Their only solution is to install the latest BIOS which I have done. My originally purchased mother board had these issues with ASUS tech support finally saying it must be something with the seating of the CPU and asked that I remove the CPU to inspect it - during the process of removing the CPU and inspecting the pins on the mother board I made the mistake of touching the pins with my finger and found that the pins actually have a bend at the top to allow better contact with the intel chip. To my surprise the pins are sharp and stuck to the skin of my finger and when I tried to remove my finger a few of the pins were bent. WARNINING - DO NOT TOUCH THE CPU PINS ON THIS MOTHER BOARD - VERY HIGH LIKLEYHOOD OF PIN DAMAGE. Would have been nice if the ASUS tech would have warned me about this when he asked me to remove the CPU to inspect the pins - Thanks ASUS. I told the ASUS tech what happened and they said "OK, will do an RMA, send in the board and we will evaluate it and replace if necessary." I sent in the board and got an email back that there would be a $180.00 charge to fix the mother board ... REALLY! Thanks ASUS. I paid the $180.00 (now the cost of the board is $469.99 + $180.00 = $649.99). WOW. So I waited with great anticipation for the new board thinking everything would be great because my old ASUS Rampage III extreme was the most rock solid mother board I have ever seen and figured the first Rampage V was just a very EXPENSIVE lemon. Got the board, reinstalled everything, fired it up and continued USB recognition problems...NOOOOOOOOO. Called ASUS tech support and went through the same helps but no more inspecting the CPU pins...closely looked with magnifying glass - NO touching before assembly of the components. Upgraded the BIOS to latest 1401 at the time (I will not update to the 1502 as there are many problems with that one and am waiting to hear about the latest 1601 BIOS to see if there would be benefits from this one).

  • Thuy - I've been waiting for a update from Samsung on this matter but it seems like my phone was from Egypt and I have not ...

    I've had nothing but issues with this phone since I got it. I have apps randomly opening and closing on it's own. I've read online that it is due to the screen being too sensitive. I've been waiting for a update from Samsung on this matter but it seems like my phone was from Egypt and I have not received an update yet. Pretty much the phone has been unusable for me because I can't even type or navigate the phone without it closing me out of applications or opening up ones randomly. I am very disappointed in this. What are my options?

  • Leon S. Allgood Jr - Consider using an earlier version instead

    I bought Panda IS 2009 late in the year, and they automatically upgraded me to the current version upon activation. Good might think. When the subscription was over, I thought I would use one of the free alternatives, and continue to use the Panda firewall until I have time to do backups and reinstall windoze. Not with IS 2010. Panda now has a nag screen that pops up periodically all day long. Anything you might be doing, especially if you're in full screen, immediately minimizes or stops so Panda can give you a reminder. I have Panda IS 2011, but want to wait until I do a complete windblows reinstall before using it.

  • Douglas E. Pritchard - THE CLASSIC ONE!

    This is the definitive version of Dicken's book. Sim is fabulous as Scrooge. You feel the passion of his performace as you wend your way through. His Scrooge as well as the spirits helps set the proper mood for every Christmas season. I consider it a special treat to watch this every year. Before I had it on tape I used to watch the tv listings to see which station it would be on so I could make sure to see it. I would not do anything else while this was on. Just watched it again. Never get tired of it. This is the number one holiday movie.

  • cmriker - Miracle-worker for my anxious cat

    This works perfectly for my anxious cat. My current roommate has a cat, and one of my cats really doesn't like him. He's always been anxious, but then he started to "go" outside of the litter box, and he was scratching furniture and fighting with the other cat, as well. His behavior just really got out of control, and I was at my wit's end, thinking I'd have to rehome him in order to stop the behavior. I was really skeptical about the Feliway product, because it's one of those things that won't work for every animal in every case, but I'm so glad I tried it. It was worth the money. It's brought the incidents down to a minimum, and I don't even have the thing running all the time.

  • pattie m - Good Frizz control

    Keeps my frizz in control without that oily look that I get with Frizz ease serum - although I like that too for the hair at the neck line. I alternate this with Matrix Biolage Smoothing Shine Milk - I have no idea why, but it works, and it took me 30+ years of frizz to discover this.
