I know Im probably just anxious, but it seems like no one is around the boards today. Does anyone have any insight to this problem?
P.S:: I have gone to the via site and downloaded their drivers but its not working?
I dont know WHAT happened. I dont remember doing ANYTHING to my computer at all. Each time I boot the computer (M6809) I get a prompt saying "new hardware found" USB controller" and it wants to install the drivers for it. Problem is, I dont have them on my HD it seems.
I am on the road but brought the RESTORE DVD with the drivers and stuff on it. I have tried to browse the dvd for the usb drivers, but cannot find them. Can you guys please tell me where to get the...
I hope your right! SO far so good! The more I use the ENTER key and the ARROW keys, the more normal they are feeling too. Hopefully, I can "work out" any sugar from the soda that is still there!
Arghhhhhh!!! While showing my brother in law my laptop (M6809) on Thanksgiving day, my 2 year old son got a bit excited while watching an ATI DEMO. He proceeded to (while sitting on my lap) shake his sippy cup up and down about 5 times. Well, I guess the whole one-way checkvalve thingy on his sippy cup that is SUPPOSED to keep the liquid IN unless he's drinking it, is a crock of $hit!!!!
A 50/50 mix of water and sprite (a treat for Thanksgiving day) went flying into...
Quick question......First off, its been almost two years and so far the only repair my laptop has needed is to get the hinge covers replaced (about a year and a couple of months ago that happened.) No new problems...the laptop runs like a champ.
I have notice however that the LCD is "loose". That is, the screen has some play in it (around a 1/2 inch or so travel. It is still a firm screen, but it has the "travel."
The LCD is perfect otherwise....No screen flicker,...
I feel bad for you guys with this problem. I dont think however, that anyone that has the problem just dismisses it. I for one would have a huge problem with screen flicker!
I hope that you get your problems resoved and get to finally enjoy your laptop as I have.
P.S: I had a Dell Inspiron 3500 before this laptop and the main reason I had to replace it (even though it WAS 7 years old!) was because the screen finally went from...
I feel real bad that you are having such bad luck with your machines. I dont think however that the thousands and thousands of M6809 owners out there share your views.
Yes, I had a hinge crack. But I spoke with Emachines, RMAd my unit to them and got it back a week later. (at the time, people were saying that emachines wouldnt repair it if you reformatted the hd and put xp pro on it.) I confronted emachines with this, and told them NOT to even turn the...
Here is the story:
Getting ready for work (early get up so get everything ready for the morning the night before....) My laptop is in the bag upstairs so I run up and grab it. About 3 steps to go before I get to the foyer (going down the stairs) and then.....My damn laptop back wasnt zipped up! It opens, and out goes the laptop, it hits my foot as I land on the ceramic tile floor and then it too hits the ceramic!
So Im on my ass looking up at the ceiling wondering...
