Well, thanks for the vote of confidence Jannie it's much appreciated.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

Hey, yeah, come on Gigabyte! They're doing a much better job than your tech support ;D

I've got to say that I'm surprised that Gigabyte don't do more to support these guys as they do an awesome job.

I actually thought they worked for Gigabyte and was shocked to discover that neither of them do and that they have no real support from Gigabyte at all which makes their efforts even more amazing.

Come on Gigabyte, you can give away enough bits to have them reviewed and increase your sales, supply these guys with the kit to continue helping your customer's who come to this forum and must be reducing the amount of queries raised at what is laughingly called Technical Support!!!

I have to say, without the help of Absic and DM, I would never have gotten my system up and running. This is the place to go when you need expert help in configuring a new built system that doesn't perform properly A BIG THANKS for your continued help and superior guidance in getting my sys up and running PROPERLY! Could never have done this without you!!! All I can say is keep supporting these guys!

Hi All..I just read a post where DM says the forum has 5000 members now, and I bet these two guys helped more than the seven votes we have in our poll. It has 126 veiws. Well it looks to me like it must be very easy to build your own computer and so difficult to put a tick in a box...Come on people..give these guys the support they deserve.. ::)

Yes, I second everything that has been said about the total dedication these guys have on this forum.
They deserve an awful lot more appreciation from Gigabyte.
I was originally directed to this forum,by Gigabyte, after my question couldnt be answered, by Gigabyte, so they are fully aware of how proffesionall and accurate the answers are on here. (unlike my spelling lol...sorry)

Anyway lets have this poll on the home page when you log on so everyone can see it AND VOTE!!!!!
and say a big thanks to all the moderators who give there time and knowledge on here (TY DM)

I agree, and know from first hand experience helping Gigabyte users just how hard it can be to help people when you only have older hardware.

I really like the Yes/Yes voting options too  ;D

I have to say that so far, I haven't need to really post a technical question as I have found the answers here.

You and absic are doing a great job and I for one appreciate all your efforts!
