Re: He's lurrrrrrking

:-) Just revisiting old posts, editing and/or removing if I get the urge. Just looking to cut ties and lessen my digital footprint. I usually just use Facebook these days, with my small circle of real-life friends and family. Don't really have much to say on local topics these days either, so not mu...

Re: Computer Repair - GPU Reballing

Madmind - did you ever have the reballing done on your computer? No. I was actually posting on behalf of someone else. They may have it repaired soon. The issue is do they really want to spend $200+ to have it repaired. P.S. As to what would be fixed by a reballing, this is a response I got from a ...

Re: Computer Repair - GPU Reballing

Last repair I did on a dv9000 MB replacement for someone costed about $175 which was a motherboard repair, goo, and riser plate (sourced from ebay) - food for thought. Thanks for the feedback infratactix. $175? Think that's overcharging a bit? Fixmygpu does a reball for $125, and avonpcpitstop does...

THE PROBLEM ACKNOWLEDGED Tech Shakedown: HP Pavilion notebook owners flood HP's site (wireless stops working) HP DV9000 Wireless Card Not Working "It's not HP at fault, it's nVidia. This is also happening in Toshibas and Acers, but you hear about it mostly in HP's because they were 90% of the r...

Re: Computer Repair - GPU Reballing

Assuming that you're right about the GPU/heat issue being the culprit, will replacing the GPU fix the optical drive, touchpad, battery, and wireless card? Doesn't seem very likely. I have read that the Wifi issue does stem from the same problem. I'm not sure about the CD/DVD drive. I have seen a vi...

Re: Computer Repair - GPU Reballing

Thanks for the suggestion Petro, I'll shoot him an email. And Athena, the laptop isn't so old that it should need to be replaced. I found out there was a class action lawsuit against HP, and they stepped up by offering a limited warranty service enhancement and repaired affected laptops free of char...

Computer Repair - GPU Reballing

I know someone who has an HP DV series laptop. After the battery stopped holding a charge, the CD/DVD drive stopped functioning, and the touchpad stopped working, now the wireless went too. Looking on the internet and Youtube, it seems the HP dv series are plagued with these problems stemming from t...

Re: Murfie.com (Madison's own)

Not to mention giving up your hard copy strips you of the ability to make direct copies (whether it be for back-up purposes or to give to a friend etc.). Maybe someone failed to clue the owner in that there's already a place where almost every album in existence is stored and [freely] distributed. T...

Murfie.com (Madison's own)

Executive Q&A: Turbo Tap inventor pores over CDs So I don't get it, Murfie.com is just for people who have money to burn, who are too busy and/or too lazy to make rips of their own CDs? I'm sorry but charging people to make rips of their own CDs doesn't seem like a business model with much pote...

Re: Madison - social dud for over 40's ?

I think a lot of the people who have "given up" as Flanders said, haven't necessarily given up, but are just waiting for something to miraculously change. Like wack wack says; I don't think "opportunities" and "habits" are that separate. Over decades and through generat...

Re: Madison - social dud for over 40's ?

...I have single friends in their late 30's in multiple geographies - Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, San Francisco, NYC, Austin, etc., and they all complain about the same kind of stuff. I have no doubt that every city has its challenges, but unlike those other [larger] cities, Madison's challenge ...

Re: Madison - social dud for over 40's ?

FACT: They ain't built the city that doesn't have people complaining about quality of social opportunity. Y'all are grousers! Positively true, but that doesn't necessarily mean that all criticisms should be dismissed as mere hearsay. I've often thought that an entire American city should be built a...
