Hope you get sorted soon, buddy.
I don't have a problem per se, but I ordered and paid for a new mouse & keyboard on Monday from Rebeltech after they informed me the supplier had stock, but boy, have they been dragging their feet. I'm still waiting for someone to get back to me with an update on my order because my account still says payment is required, and I've just now had to send another email requesting an update status.
It's a bit puzzling because I've bought from them before and they were fine, but now it's looking likely that I won't get the goods by tomorrow, which sucks to say the least.
Sorry, just a minor rant. :(
The weirdest thing just happened. I was reading the news through chrome and then all of a sudden the tabs started juttering around. I thought it was just chrome acting funny so I shut it down, but then it started happening all over my windows GUI. So then I started up an virus scan which is still going. Below is a screen shot of the remnants of the issue
Anyone know what just happened?
I've seen similar graphical glitches with Windows 8 and my AMD HD6870. I'm not even sure what's causing it because its been reported in quite a few other forums on the net. What hardware are you running?
My mouse and keyboard don't work (not even any power going to them) after my PC wakes up from sleep mode!? What do I do?
Mouse= Razer Naga
Keyboard= Razer Lycosa
Both with latest drivers on Win7 Pro 64bit...
Stop using sleep mode. I hate sleep mode.
EDIT: Nevermind I fixed it.

How did you fix it, @jhl?
Giblets: Don't load Linux onto your UEFI-clad Samsung lappy
All over the internet are users complaining about some Samsung laptops from the 2012/2013 lineup locking out users trying to load Linux on the notebooks. Rebooting after the initial Linux install will result in the laptop bricking itself up, as the UEFI BIOS crashes when you try using the UEFI boot loader. Some investigation reveals this to be caused by NVRAM corruption (the stuff that the CMOS battery keeps powered) and removing the CMOS battery normally returns UEFI to working, but still broken, order. Its likely that during the development process Samsung tested their laptops with Windows, but didn't account that users might like to load other OSes to play with. Samsung has yet to comment on the issue and the work-around is as very complex and convoluted dual-boot method that I wouldn't suggest trying, only because it might be more work than necessary. Its worth mentioning that this might even affect Windows 7 installs as well.
Okay, this qualifies as a "trouble" IMO:
As some might know, I purchased my third router in about 16 months not a month and a half ago. The new one (D-Link something something) now has the same problem as the 3 previous ones - they all stop connecting to the internet completely. The first one, a Billion, started acting up and finally failed completely. Two TrendNET's later, both giving the same problems (start disconnecting, fixes with a restart and finally fails to connect completely) and now the D-Link, I don't think it's the router's to blame. Every time connecting a new router has solved the issue, but I cannot keep buying new routers left right and center. I am now thinking that it's not the routers that are to blame, but the line/ISP. Telkom and WebAfrica both inspected but both failed to detect a problem with the last TrendNET, so I bought a new router (the D-Link I was talking about). Installed it, perfect function. All works just dandy. For two weeks. Now it's dead as well, as in completely. No PPPoE connection, no internet connection, no WiFi, nothing. Just dead.
WTF CAN I DO??? It's frustrating AS HELL and there seems to be nothing I can do to fix it on my side. What options do I have going forward now?
Odd as i have had the same issue with routers. "4 wireless routers dead"
My one friend has had the same issue's as well. "2 routers dead"
"profits are down" Mac address... hidden code.. ????.. profit.
Sorry, seems there was a different issue. Should be solved now soon though!
Surge? ****ty electricity supply?
Don't leave us hanging man!
Ah. No, payment that didn't reflect on the analog line. Made another one, seems to have shoved the old one on and now the line is sitting with about R600 in credit. ****es me off, had no internet connectivity for days because of a bank/Telkom/interaction issue. Bleh.
Lenovo Thinkpad SL510, involved in MVA, no physical damage, when trying to boot power button lights up, dvd drive indicator flashes once then the laptop cuts out. This is with or without battery, on or off the mains.
I really need to recover the HDD. Please assist.
Should be a SATA based hard drive. Just remove it from the laptop and pop it into a desktop PC. (Just make sure you're not booting from it.)
