HP Pavilion dv9000 NVIDIA Geforce Go 7600 - Fixed With Black Voodoo

09/05/2009 07:40 PM — Apparently the problem is with the solder joints. I called HP and determined even if they cover the damage, because I am past 24 months, the replacement motherboard would only be discounted $150 so the cost of HP repair would be $250. I googled the issue further and saw some advanced / expert users (a category I classify myself in) attempting some black voodoo. I also googled and found replacement motherboards that I could use myself for $185 - so I knew I could try some manual repair techniques myself.

08/24/2009 02:59 AM — I have an HP Pavilion dv9000 series notebook (dv9339us) which I purchased in the summer of 2007. Yesterday, I was playing Counter-Strike: Source, which is a first person shooter computer game that uses OpenGL or DirectX 9.0c. Everything was working properly.

Review: HTC Touch Pro, Verizon Wireless Edition

12/13/2008 07:37 AM — So I had the Verizon Wireless XV6800 (HTC Titan) for about 9 months. It started having Wifi issues. After a series of 4 exchanges for refurbished models (all defective-out-of-the-refurb box), they finally gave me the option of upgrading my phone, which to be honest, was not what I had intended at all.

On Love...

10/20/2008 11:58 AM

The truest form of love is not a feeling, though a feeling almost certainly accompanies it. The truest form of love is a gift of yourself -- a promise -- from one person to another, and the lifestyle by which that promise is honored... the lifestyle by which that promise is lived out.
