Community Article My MSI laptop webcam isn't working! — Micro Center My MSI laptop webcam isn't working! TSTonyV admin April 8 edited April 8 in Technical Support Questions With the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, many people are finding themselves having to work from home. This means using webcams for video conferencing and communication. Most laptops these days come with webcams built in which is convenient for the user.  We've had a lot of customers contact us regarding their MSI laptop webcams not working out of box. By default, MSI laptops have the webcam disabled. But don't be too concerned! It's actually an easy fix.  MSI laptops (and many other laptops) use function keys to toggle various pieces of hardware on and off for the laptop. MSI laptops use the F6 key for the webcam. To turn on your webcam, you need to press the F6 key, or press Fn + F6 together: You'll notice the F6 key has a little picture on it that actually looks like a webcam. Once you press F6 or FN+F6, the camera should toggle on and be available for use.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Laptop Repair - MSI GS63 — Micro Center Laptop Repair - MSI GS63 GUnit1111 ✭ May 29 in Customer Service Questions I have an MSI GS63 Stealth VR and the laptop has a built in battery. The laptop works fine except for when I take it off the AC adapter to run on battery, I get very limited to almost no battery life. It usually lasts about anywhere from 30 - 40 minutes when it used to last over 2 hours and 20 minutes. The question is can Micro Center repair the battery? And if so how much would it cost? And how would I set up the repairs? I have been attempting to contact my local store (Tustin) and haven't been able to get through. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin May 30 We are able to do battery repairs on laptops. For MSI laptops specifically, it needs to have been purchased from us originally. If it wasn't, you'll need to contact MSI. If it was, internal battery repairs are $49.99 for labor, not including the cost of the new battery itself. If it's still under warranty, it should be covered by that.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article MSI ge62 60f apache pro with weird grinding noise — Micro Center MSI ge62 60f apache pro with weird grinding noise Jordan3456 ✭ November 2 in Technical Support Questions I have a problem with my MSI ge62 60f apache pro laptop. There is a weird grinding noise coming from under the steel series logo. I think it's one of my hard drives is making that noise. My install is 128 GB near full cap Data is 1T and is 2/3 Full. Please help me confirm this please! The noise is annoying and loud. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMikeW admin November 2 Greetings @Jordan3456 This is very likely. The HDD is located just below where the Steel series logo is, on the left side of the system, near the front. Easy way to confirm, remove the bottom, disconnect the drive. Power it on and you should know immediately.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article MAINGEAR VECTOR 2 Review - A Choice For Gaming in 2020 — Micro Center MAINGEAR VECTOR 2 Review - A Choice For Gaming in 2020 AlexS admin June 9 edited September 3 in Reviews & Buying Guides Gaming laptop popularity is increasing more and more in this day and age.  With technology forever evolving, the power of processors and video cards you see in high end desktops are now being found more commonly in mid to high-end gaming laptops.   On top of that, the affordability for a higher end gaming laptop that can play most Triple AAA titles at medium-high settings with decent frame rates is reaching levels that the average gamer would be comfortable with when it comes to cost for performance.   MAINGEAR aims to spearhead this demographic this year with their newest model, the MAINGEAR Vector 2.  First Impressions I was quite honored by my boss when he provided me this opportunity to review this golden sample for the MAINGEAR Vector 2.  At first glance, you notice the simple, yet elegant design of the case that doesn’t necessarily yell “GAMER!” to the world.  For owners of the previous VECTOR, they’ll notice it looks quite similar to their own. That's because the case is nearly identical to the previous rendition. You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  The full backlit keyboard is also an attractive feature and provides ample lighting in dark areas.   Looking at the outside of the laptop, I noticed a healthy amount of ports suited towards a gaming laptop. Ethernet port, multiple video ports, USB-C, and more.  The ASUS ROG nor the MSI Laptop I’ve recently had possession of had nowhere near this sort of capacity. The build feels quite sturdy and the display itself doesn’t feel too flimsy either.    For the remainder of the review, please use the shortcuts below to jump to whichever section you prefer. Hardware Specifications Internals Externals 0% Bloatware Final Thoughts 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments AlexS admin June 9 Hardware Specifications Internals Peripherals External Ports & Features 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter AlexS admin June 9 edited June 10 Internals      The MAINGEAR Vector 2 essentially upgrades many of its components to its newer rendition. Below I’ve listed the comparison of major hardware components between the Vector and Vector 2.       Yes, you’ve read that correctly.  The VECTOR 2 uses the desktop variant of the RTX 2060 versus it’s less-powerful, mobile counterpart.  This makes a big difference in performance as the goal of playing TRIPLE AAA titles on higher settings is reachable.   An upgrade to the RAM from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-2933 makes a nice jump as well, with an open slot available if you wish to add another stick of RAM.  The last major upgrade would be the doubling of storage.  The 1TB NVMe SSD removes that worry of having to add and remove games occasionally and the VECTOR 2 also includes a second M.2 slot for adding even more storage.   You also see a processor upgrade to 10th Gen Intel with the i7-10750H 6-core processor. Speakers      The speakers output a nice clear sound at high volume.  It’s pretty clear with very minimal distortion which I enjoy.  While this attribute is sufficient for most games and videos, a gaming headset will be recommended if you need more directional audio. Fans      Underneath the mesh cage house two 5V, 2.25A fans that efficiently expel heat from the device.  Air flow can be felt strongly from the two vents on the side and the two vents in the rear. Like most gaming laptops, this does produce a hefty amount of noise under load but only under load.  The NODE control center also allows a FAN BOOST option to help cool the internals even more.  On idle or light use (office application, browsing the web) you’ll hear little to no fan noise. Battery      Gaming laptops are notorious for draining the battery, even when using light applications.  Nvidia ® Optimus helps relieve this issue.  The VECTOR 2 comes with a 4-cell 15.4V 4100mAh battery that can touch 5-6 hours with light use on Battery Saver mode.  Light gaming will see a 1-2 hours on battery life. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter AlexS admin June 9 edited June 10 Externals Beneath the center of the display is a 720p VGA webcam with LED indicator and to the right of this, a microphone.  The most noise from a visual standpoint will be the side and rear portions of the laptop.  On both sides towards the rear, you’ll have a ribbed design for airflow.  On the back, you’ll also find additional ventilation to keep the VECTOR 2 nice and cool.   On the bottom of the unit, you’ll see some of the internals of the laptop that are covered by a sturdy mesh cage.  I absolutely love this design as you’re maximizing the amount of airflow to come through the bottom of the laptop without compromising the sturdiness of the chassis.  The Display The VECTOR 2 comes with a 15.6” Full HD, non-touchscreen display with a 144hz refresh rate.  As a former Counter-strike enthusiast, this instantly gave me good vibes and almost made me want to jump back into that game when I was playing a few rounds.  The colors are great and the picture is smooth all around.  The max brightness for this unit can touch towards 300 nits.   F1 2019 also performed quite well as driving at 195MPH+ speeds in a Mercedes F1 car looks surprisingly okay on the 15.6” display.  The clean and crisp display is definitely a pro for this gaming laptop. The Keyboard The VECTOR 2 comes with a full chiclet style RGB keyboard.  The keys work well for a touch typist and for hunt-and-peckers, the backlighting can help with locating keys with ease.  The NODE Control Software allows you to easily change the colors of the keyboard to your liking.   Touchpad The VECTOR 2’s Synaptics touchpad has a good size and has solid functionality for the laptop.  A green LED is placed in the upper left hand corner that can be double tapped to enable or disable the touchpad.   Two finger functionality is actually quite smooth in case you need to zoom in or out on a web page or document.  However, unless you’re playing RIOT Games’ Teamfight Tactics, or solitaire, plug in an external mouse.  Actually, do that anyways.   I/O Ports MAINGEAR gifts us a plethora of ports to choose from and for that, we thank them.  I do wish the USB-C port was display-enabled but the two mini-DisplayPort and HDMI output will do the job for most users.   There’s a USB 2.0 port included as well which I’m sure a decision was made for this port to be included.  Placement of all ports are pretty optimal as well.  Shouldn’t cause too much interference with heat exhaust coming out from the ventilation.  Networking For wireless and Bluetooth capabilities, the VECTOR 2 comes with an Intel 9462NGW wireless/Bluetooth card.  It meets the 802.11AC standard with Bluetooth 5.0 so your wireless needs should be covered. Also included is an RJ45 port for gamers who prefer a hardwired connection. The Chassis Going over the case, you have a very sleek, yet simple design. A matte black surface covers the case with the iconic MAINGEAR logo centered on top.  Upon opening the laptop, you reveal the full RGB chiclet style keyboard, two nicely placed buttons for Power and Performance Mode and LEDs to signify Power, Battery, and CAPS Lock.   1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter AlexS admin June 9 0% Bloatware      So when it comes to the advertised 0% BLOATWARE by MAINGEAR...it’s true.  The VECTOR 2 comes with a clean installation of Windows 10, its NODE Control Center and that’s it.  Definitely a pro in my book.  The NODE Control Center is also really easy to use.  From monitoring temps/fan control to changing the colors of your RGB Backlit keyboard, the software is there and very convenient.  The software is also linked to the Performance Mode button I mentioned earlier, so you can cycle it from Office, Gaming, or Turbo modes with the single press of the button.  More on the software here 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter AlexS admin June 9 Final Thoughts     The MAINGEAR Vector 2 would be a nice addition to anyone’s gaming arsenal.  The battery life is surprisingly lengthy with normal applications such as Office or web browsers.   MAINGEAR’s decision to use the desktop variant of the RTX 2060 pays off with great performance.  The 144hz panel just makes everything better.  The Vector 2 is truly a sleek option for on-the-go gaming.        If you're coming from the desktop world and still would like to get an affordable mechanical keyboard and mouse to bring along, I'd recommend the Inland MK-S RGB Gaming Keyboard (Ten-Keyless) and Inland GM76 Gaming Mouse.  Very affordable options with great quality for some intense gaming.   Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next review! 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Amallycat ✭ September 20 I just got this laptop and it doesn't stay connected to the 5ghz network well.

After inputing all the information needed to go to the main home screen and restarting the computer after, it started off with the MSI logo and then at the bottom it said "Preparing Automatic Repair" then "Diagnosing your PC" and then sent me to a blue screen that says, Automatic Repair Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC Press "Advance options" to try other options to repair your PC or "Shut down" to turn off your PC. Log file: E:\Recovery\WindowsRE\Winre.wim\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt I have tried pretty much all the Advance Options it gives me and it won't allow me to do anything. For example when I go to Troubleshoot - Reset this PC, it says "there was a problem reseting your pc." Or Troubleshoot - Startup Settings - Safe Mode, it restarts computer and takes me back to the "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC." I don't know what else to do.

Can I download the Windows link on a Mac?  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMikeW admin July 6 Sure, OSX will work fine. Depends on the age of the system and how you want to boot. For MBR use bootcamp assistant to create a bootable flash drive, then extract the contents of the ISO onto it. Main problem with bootcamp assistant is it'll format the drive to FAT32 and the install.wim may be too large for this file system. So you either split it, or use the generated bootcamp files and move them to the flash drive afterwards. If it's a newer board and you're going to want to enabler CSM in the BIOS. For UEFI it has to see the default path, EFI\BOOT\BOOTx64.efi. Just keep in mind the file system needs to be something Windows can read and not Mac OS journaled.  There are a ton of guides online if you search for "Creating Windows 10 bootable media OSX". I'll see if we can't elaborate on this and work on a guide of our own. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sanchez ✭ July 8 Hey there, okay so I was able to download it through a windows computer. Once I boot the usb and went through a few steps, I got stuck on this one shown on the image bellow. I am going to wait till I get a response from you to move ahead. Also, you want me to go through the command line process before doing this or after installing windows? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMikeW admin July 8 I'm seeing two drives. Looks like a 1TB drive with two partitions. The BigFIles 910GB and the BIOS_RVY 20GB partition. Then you have the second drive, looks like a 120GB SSD with four partitions. System, MSR, Windows and WINRE. This drive has an OS on it. If you're trying to install to the 120GB and you don't want to save any data on it, delete those four partitions then install to the Drive 1 Unallocated Space. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sanchez ✭ July 8 Awesome!

And to get the job done from home, you’ll need the right tools to stay productive. In the digital age, a capable laptop should be at the top of the list to handle anything from Office tasks to collaboration. For better ergonomic, be sure to pair your perfect notebook with an external monitor. Check out our guide on dual monitor setups. Whatever your budget is for a work laptop, these systems will deliver the power and performance needed, and the best part is that they’re portable enough to take with you when you can start to head back into the office. Here are our top five picks for the best laptops for working from home: Image from Apple.com Apple MacBook Air: The workhorse for Apple fans Pros: Sleek design Elegant unibody metal design Long battery life Cons: Limited to USB-C ports Difficult to upgrade components Despite having been released more than a decade ago, the MacBook Air continues to be one of the most popular laptops – and rightfully so. This beloved notebook had set the stage for premium laptops, thanks to its unibody aluminum wedged-shape design and thin and light form factor. Though it may appear that much hasn’t changed, Apple has provided meaningful updates this year to keep the Air at the top of our list. Still weighing in at under three pounds, the 13.3-inch Air now comes with a high-resolution Retina Display with True Tone screen technology to keep colors accurate. A TouchID sensor makes it easy to log in, and upgraded USB-C ports make it easy to connect to a battery pack for even longer battery life on the go. And powering the entire thing is Intel’s 10th-Gen processors. For lovers of Apple’s ecosystem, if your business also relies on an iPhone or iPad, the Air should be at the top of your pick. This laptop can tap into FaceTime video calls with its FaceTime HD webcam. You can even respond to iMessages with the new Magic Keyboard, which offers a better experience than the butterfly switches on some recent Pros. Lenovo ThinkPad E15: Made for business productivity Pros: Durable MIL-STD design Anti-glare screen Privacy shutter Cons: Webcam limited to just 720p Boring design Arguably referred to as the gold standard for business laptops, Lenovo’s modest ThinkPad E series proves that enterprise systems don’t have to cost a fortune. At a more modest $899 price, the ThinkPad E15 comes with many features that will help you get things done, including a roomy 15.6-inch FHD display with an anti-glare coating, a speedy 10th-Gen quad-core Intel processor, and a spacious 256GB solid-state drive to store all your files. Underneath its understated all-black design, the ThinkPad’s claim to fame is its MIL-STD certification, including a durable aluminum lid and a keyboard that can survive some spilled coffee in the morning. Harman Audio tuning and a 720p webcam help with video conferencing, while a physical ThinkShutter privacy shutter gives your family the privacy needed after work is done. MSI Creator 17: Designed for designers Pros: Powerful performance GPU with ray-tracing capabilities 4K HDR display Cons: Pricey Heavy At 5.51 pounds, the MSI Creator 17 is the heaviest laptop on our list, but this heavyweight powerhouse packs a big punch despite its 0.80-inch thick body. Often pigeon-holed as a gaming notebook, the Creator 17 is a mobile workstation that can handle Office tasks, web browsing, creative workflows, data analysis, and more with ease. The $2,999 Creator 17 is a versatile system packed with Intel’s 10th-Gen Core i7 processor and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics, making it overkill for most jobs. But if your job involves editing videos or lots of time spent in Photoshop, then you’ll appreciate the capabilities of this notebook, which includes a large 17.3-inch screen with 4K resolution and HDR support, 32GB of memory, and a whopping 1TB SSD for storage. HP Envy x360 13: A transforming notebook Pros:  Versatile 360-degree hinge AMD Ryzen 4000 performance Integrated Radeon graphics for HD gaming Cons: No discrete GPU option HP’s Envy convertible is a laptop that marches to the beat of its own drum. Though this Windows 10 laptop may share a similar design as Apple’s MacBook lineup, it comes with some features that make it just as unique as it is powerful. For starters, the Envy x360 comes with a 13.3-inch FHD display that rotates on a 360-degree hinge, allowing it to convert between a laptop and a tablet easily. In either mode, you can use the optional Stylus Pen to write or draw on the touchscreen, which is excellent for signing PDFs or jotting down quick notes. For $999, you get the best of a tablet and laptop in one convenient package with the added benefit of 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage. Underneath the hood, this Envy x360 is one of the few laptops that isn’t powered by Intel silicon. Instead, the AMD-made Ryzen 7 4700U chip gives this laptop plenty of power to get things done, and the integrated Radeon graphics have enough muscle power to let you unwind to a 1080p game at the end of a long workday. Google Pixelbook Go: For life in the browser Pros: Chrome OS stays up to date Able to run some Android apps Cons: Chrome OS can be limiting No biometric security If you don’t need the complexities of a full desktop operating system, you can keep things simple and light by living in the browser. Google’s Chrome OS offers plenty of tools to get things done if your primary needs rely on Google Apps. And if this describes you to a tee, then the Pixelbook Go is a great solution. Coming in at 2.3 pounds, the Pixelbook Go is the lightest laptop on our list, but don’t let its size fool you. Backed by Chrome OS, you’ll routinely get all the latest security patches and updates, and this laptop boasts excellent battery life. It also comes with a 13.3-inch FHD display – though you can upgrade to a 4K version with touch – that will smoothly run the Chrome browser and Android apps with ease. With a premium build quality, this powerful Chrome OS laptop uses Intel Core processors and integrated Intel UHD Graphics 615.

Welcome to the Community.  Unfortunately we don't know exactly when we may have those motherboards available. X570 and B550 boards in general are kind of hard to come by these days. It should be eligible for the bundle with the 3900X once it's available, just like all our other X570 boards.  1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

The $380 board is the MSI X570 MEG ACE, which appears to be $50-$70 cheaper than what I am finding from our competitors online, though I question if the higher pricing is due to lack of availability or if this board is really retailing for that price. Hard to say given the current climate of hardware availability. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article CPU upgade — Micro Center CPU upgade Juliano ✭ August 16 in CPU's, Memory and Motherboards Hello, So I purchased an MSI GE75 Raider 9SG last year thinking It could handle anything I threw at it.. I was wrong. The laptop has a 9750H CPU and an RTX 2080. I do a lot of 3d rendering/design, video editing, ect.. The CPU is my bottleneck. I have searched high and low but can not find a solution to upgrading my CPU. The answer I keep on getting is that I'm SOL. Its a great laptop just not as powerful as I want it to be. I would like to have the CPU upgraded. Any advice at all would be appreciated. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMikeW admin August 16 Greetings, This is always a tricky subject with laptops. Usually manufacturers will share a common board and BIOS version across a model family and what you can do is look at other models in the family and see if they offer a version with an  upgraded CPU. That processor may work, but you also have to consider if a BIOS update will be required. Was the upgraded CPU available when your laptop was built? If not, you're going to have to approach the manufacturer about a BIOS update to support it. Intel i9-9880H would be my first thought here, as there are systems available for the GE75 Raider *SG series with this CPU, but because of the reasons mentioned above I would contact MSI and verify. Even though it's probably the same motherboard, it may be labeled different in the firmware, making in incompatible with the BIOS on the same, system with a different motherboard, when it shouldn't be, or doesn't need to be. Contact MSI is the best advice here, or you can stop by our store and we'll do so for you and see what upgrades are available. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter sbski ✭ August 19 @Juliano I will start off by saying most laptops are going to have a soldered processor. You realistically cannot upgrade that yourself and I wouldn't even do it   You do have a few options in terms of getting more performance out of it. The first one is to use a utility like Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility to undervolt the CPU if you are running into thermal bottlenecks. To complement that, if you feel comfortable re pasting the laptop that will also help. You may be able to overclock a bit (this will void your warranty) but I wouldn't go above stock voltages as otherwise you are going to get very high temperatures.  You also could buy a new motherboard and replace that but you may be looking at nearly the price of the laptop itself. At that point I would just sell that laptop and buy a new one. If you want to just buy a new system, I would wait to see if Nvidia ends up releasing new graphics cards here. My guess is that we unfortunately won't be seeing any top trier graphics cards for the next little bit. I hoped that this helped but feel free to HMU if you have any questions.  1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin August 21 sbski said: @Juliano I will start off by saying most laptops are going to have a soldered processor.

My guess is that we unfortunately won't be seeing any top trier graphics cards for the next little bit. I hoped that this helped but feel free to HMU if you have any questions.  I second this. Undervolting is definitely the way to go with laptops. Since you're bound by both thermal and power limits, undervolting can give you a decent enough power/thermal overhead to boost higher/longer. My 7700HQ managed to handle a -120mv offset and dropped thermals considerably. Just be mindful that playing with voltages will often void warranties for most manufacturers, even if you are using less voltage. Be sure to check with MSI for confirmation. Repasting is definitely another great option, especially if you don't mind the risk of using liquid metal, but that requires a pretty flat heatsink, something most laptops don't really offer unfortunately. It also requires a ton of prep work, isolating all conductive components with tape or clearcoat nail polish, not to mention it would stain the heatsink and void most warranties as a result. With that said, I managed to drop another 14C off my 7700HQ by swapping the stock paste over to liquid metal. This, coupled with the undervolting, dropped my stock 7700HQ temps from 94C under 48k FFT Prime95 (AVX2) down to 72C under the same loads.  @Juliano , I'd definitely take a closer look at how your CPU is performing under your workloads. See if the clock speed is throttling at all due to high thermals or power limits. If that is the case, you should be a decent performance boost if you can remedy whatever is causing it to throttle. Aside from that, you won't see much of a performance boost going to the 10th gen laptops unless you are doing heavily threaded workloads and need the extra processing threads. Here is a quick guide on how to install MSI Afterburner and RTSS and use them to monitor your CPU resource usage: https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/3077/guide-how-to-install-enable-on-screen-display-in-msi-afterburner-rtss. This should help you narrow down the cause of the bottleneck and from there, you can determine how best to work around it. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

These are all great options! The main difference here is the GPU that you get with each laptop. Ascending in price gives you a better performing GPU.

Community Article MSI B550 Gaming Edge WiFi Windows Installation Problem — Micro Center MSI B550 Gaming Edge WiFi Windows Installation Problem MikeBB ✭ November 11 in Technical Support Questions Just put together a new system using the board listed in the subject along with an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT. I have a Samsung M2 and a Samsung SSD installed. I have a store purchased copy of Windows 10 with USB.  The install seems to work fine up until the reboots start. The first reboot where it goes through setup messages goes fine. Then the second boot hits. I get the first MSI screen, spinning dots, screen resets to new resolution, spinning dots, screen blinks one more time dots make about one and a half circles, then freeze. That's it. I've tried restarting a few times, stops at same point. I've tried installing on both the M2 and the SSD, same results. I flashed the BIOS to the current version, same results. I cleared CMOS using the jumper as described in manual, same results. I created a new Windows install USB on my main computer and tried it. The install process at the beginning seemed to take different amounts of time, but in the end, hang a the same spot. I tried booting into Safe Mode, which results in an error popup that Windows can't finish installing in Safe Mode. I tried the automatic repair of startup problem, but that puts me at the 'Defaultuser0' login dead end, so I can't run the tool. I'm out of ideas at this point. Internet searching so far isn't really turning up a solution that works. Any help getting this sorted would be greatly appreciated. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments MikeBB ✭ November 11 My problem is resolved. The install finally concluded. I was trying another restart after moving the computer to a different spot and hooking up a standard LCD monitor. The setup completed. Previously it was hooked up to an ultrawide. Is it possible that the driver was getting stuck trying to get the right resolution? I kind of doubt it, but in any event. Windows is finally working! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter LandShark admin November 11 Hmm. Sounds like you're right, it was hooked on something while starting.
