Re: My plan
i didnt have to re-install my os when i went from my abit to this evga. i simply uninstalled everything abit and installed the mobo drivers from evga.
but, i have now had to re-format my hdd because of evga's tech support, which is about as useful as a third nut.
i was on hte phone for about two hours last nite with them and the guy i was talking to seemed more interestedin eating his bag of doritos than helping me out.
anyway...had a driver conflict with the network manager (because it's in both the chipset drivers and the card drivers) and wouldn't let me uninstall it.
so, the brain surgeon at evga suggested that i delete the files manually and then perform a repair install of windows. weeellllp...while doing the repair install it asks for several specific files from nvidia that weren't there anymore. DOH! what an idiot. i cant believe i let him talk me into doing that. really what i cant believe is that i hadn't been backing up for awhile and lost alot of personal stuff. pictures and the like...no work or tax or insurance stuff so whew!
bad nagasama, bad boy. in any event, evga's tech support blows. the guy on the phone was putting a hsf on while i was trying to explain to him what was happening...then instead of answsering my question he's like, "do you know how to put the hsf on an intel mobo? do you know how to put on as5?"
wtf? nagasama's tech support here, how can i help ya?
sorry to hijack the thread but im pretty p**sed it's going to take me all day at least to get my things back in order.
i love this mobo, though...make no mistake.
"nagasama no longer drinks tecate, or streaks out of the night for anything, and he has a fine wife so he has no use for your girlfriend...she is safe..."
