And for once its not bad news. Have to admit after the last bout of headaches, its been running well. It's survived FEAR, WoW, and a few others. No complaints, aside from those already voiced.
I'd love to be able to turn this into a "boy was I wrong" post, but I still don't like how I was treated as a customer and the hoops and costs I incurred to get it all running after paying the "Cadillac" price for my laptop. I wont go blogger nutz either and start flaming either.
It's fixed, it's working, and that's the ending I'll be happy with.
