Re:

they'll never compete against real names out there. That's hardly true, they are one of the biggest suppliers of computers to the Corporates out there. I work for a very large UK company and we use their desktop PC's almost exclusively and, to be fair, they are good machines, I should know because ...

Re:

The driver version Windows displays is 5.1.2600.440a For VIA the version is called 4.40a Therefore 5.1.2600. 440a = 4.40a The latest driver on http://www.viaarena.com is 5.30c The latest driver on http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com is 4.40a Rocco wanted to say that neither driver 4.40a (or any driver o...

Am I missing something here?

The new drivers Birgit is recommending are version 5.1.2600.440a, not 4.xx. :?:

Re:

why can't they make this topic sticky? There would be no point since they are not going to do anything about it. and why can't FSC do the same like DELL did when it had to recall matsushita batteries? :idea: I think you'll find they did when they had similar battery problems last year with some mod...

Re:

so maybe this is it - we need to flash our BIOS to version 1.06 and everything will be fine?? Support for PentiumM 533MHz FSB (Sonoma) CPU Support wasn't added until V1.07 Would this affect us all? Using CPU-Z it reports FSB as 133 MHz but BUS Speed as 533 MHz :?: Do I need to upgrade to 1.07 BIOS ...

As already reported, I don't suffer from the lagging issue (but then I don't play games either) and MP3 files play OK on my Notebook (M3438G). What I didn't report in my previous post is the BIOS I'm running, I checked this last night and it is version 1.06C, I see most people on here are running 1....

Glad to hear you've sorted out the problem with InstantON Alex, lets hope the rest of the lagging issue (for those that suffer it) is resolved within Windows.

I am intrigued by this problem. As I reported in an earlier message there are quite a few of us that got Amilo M3438G Notebooks through our companies "Lets Connect" scheme last October/November, to date none of us have experienced this lag problem. I personally don't play games so that may...

Re: RETURNING THE MACHINE

He said to get a refund I would have to send it to FSC and if (only if!) the deemed it to be faulty then I would be eligible for a replacement or a refund. Absolute rot. In the UK your contract is with the retailer it is up to them to return it to FSC not you and it is up to them to give a refund i...

IMHO you need to take the Notebook apart (as much as you can) before the beer dries and rinse all parts with water (preferably distilled) including the keyboard. Then leave it somewhere warm and dry, such as an airing cupboard, until it is thoroughly dry and you may just get away with it. I did this...
