This F@$#%in' POS F@#%in' computer
As hard as it may be to believe, I do not
cuss. Fact that I've got a computer fresh off RMA that doesn't work right, has me LIVID
. The Sager boys should be happy that they're in a completely different time zone than me because I'd be lighting one of them up on the phone if I could.
F@#$ F@#% F!#$%! Not long after my previous post, I got to wondering which BIOS was installed. I didn't know if it was the newer one w/ fan controls or not. Figured I'd give it a whirl. No big deal, right? Riiiiiiiiight. F@#$! I hit Fn+F10 and sure enough, the fans kicked up a notch. Cool deal. Right? Riiiiight. Well, I couldn't get the fans to ramp back down
. They just stayed on high. And of the set of 4 little yellow lights above the keyboard, the middle two were flashing on and off in unison. WTF? I didn't time it, but I'm guessing about 20 seconds into the deal, the machine just shut down. OFF. WTF?
Just to make sure I hadn't made a mistake, I started the machine up again and hit Fn+F10. Same thing- fans ramp up, middle 2 yellow lights flash on & off, then the machine just shuts down.
I don't know- maybe there's a quick fix or whatnot, but it's F#%$in' irritating to deal with this
when the computer should work FINE
. Am I missing something? Aren't these supposed to be repaired
when they're sent in for RMA and not returned with different problems? I think this machine actually did the same thing after Sager'd sent me the new BIOS ages ago when I was having artifacting problems. I didn't think much of it because I figured it was just a part of the overall problem w/ artifacting at that time.
