    did not read the correct volume

    knew about this, but i did not want to use another app in order to use the drive. did not matter since i use a "very" larger ext drive for "not always needed to access" data anyway

    cheers ...

    I figured as much. 100 GB 7200 RPM here I come.

    I'm still debating on if I want to go with 1X1 GB stick or go a full 2X1GB and deal with the hassle of taking out the keyboard. I'm thinking no, since I can't seem to find a a better AMD processor with this socket type than what I already have. That kind of sucks, but it's not really going to bother me either.

    I use this rig primarily for gaming with the games that wont load onto my other rig with Vista. I'm too lazy to find the drivers to make them work. :p

    one extra gigo stick, on a simple installation, would do wonder! NO headache!

    does anybody knows a replacement key for the FN ? my 6805 kb's busted and i can't get any keys to work. that's unusable wifi for me :( any workaround for this/ that would be much appreciated!

    I've tried all the kb remap tool that I can find but no one can emulate the fn key :(

    Hope someone can help me out on this mess..

    also, I have seen usb keyboards that have FN key in them, can I use these type of keyboards to enable my fn keys? has anyone tried it?

    i doubt that these "external" FN keys can control the built.in function of the specific comp

    qhn, you're right. I just bought one and it doesnt work at all.... damn... and there's no way for me to clean the keyboard. what in the world just happened? one minute allkeys are working, then suddenly only few keys are working...

    anyone experienced this? what did you do to fix this? is my next step to buy a new kb? errrrrrrr

    try disabling the keyboard device in ur device manager first. visually check the ribbon that connects the kboard to the mobo. i have just replaced mine not too long ago. it is not expensive

    cheers ...
