    have you checked your CPU SOCKET COLOR...


    is it pink?? 99% seem to be,, but lucky me gets the 1% than needs a warranty voiding modification

    let me know if it is grey.. we will discuss if it is

    If you really want to try Linux, give Mandriva 2008.1 live CD a try.

    you have the Aspire 5315???

    if so just take the big pannel off the bottom and look under the HEATSINK,,

    if you see a PINK/PURPLE socket you are fine... if it's grey you may have need for my HIGH TECH modification

    refer to thumbnail at bottom of post 1,,, see the pink socket sticking out??

    click on my NICK above the scorpion pic see how it shows send private messeage...

    well when i click on yours that option is not there...

    you need to click on the USER CP option at top left bar (almost at center of screen when you are at the top of this page)

    click edit options on the left side of main window

    down inside there is an option to allow members to send you PRIVATE MESSAGES

    check that box and save setttings
