Ok, so I have this really big conference coming this thursday. Well i've put off getting the computer ready cause I was trying to put another things ahead of last minute. I also figured it wouldn't be difficult.
So I go ahead and install XP and I even install one driver from the CD, now the CD is currpot. Ok, no problem I simply go ahead and go biostar.com and download the drivers, I mean any good mobo maker would that is. So I search in their download sections, I mean this isn't the first time and guess what, nothing... ITs the audio drivers the computer is going to be used to show a video, audio is not a maybe but a must. they no longer provide the ability to download drivers for this legacy mobo. Now I will admit it was a cheap MOBO when I got it cause it was for a PC build which was designed to be groofed around with. However to call a mobo which is under a year old from date of brand new purschase is ****ing crazy! Legacy starts at 5-6 years. Not 1-2, either way I sent them a nasty gram.
Well anyways I gave my rant to their tech support basically telling them that they stopped supporting a mobo that I mean all it required was a few MBs on a server... So I contacted their tech support basically saying they suck, and that they stopped supporting a AM2 MOBO, I mean they don't even HOST the drivers anymore. Which is a real ****ing killer cause It old my teacher it'd be done by tomorrow, which it would be. HOWEVER the CD went bad which normally is not a problem and the site doesn't host the drivers.
My end quote was "I really don't enjoy your business, and I desire to never buy your products again, thanks for all your wonderful lack of support and by the time you read this e-mail and get to replaying I will have resloved this issue VIA a thirdparty, so just know that I really think you suck"
I mean i'm not talking something complex here, I need a driver for a AM2 mobo which I bought just last year. This isn't some 20 year old computer i'm talking about here. Its under a year old. Really ticks me off cause the PC isn't done, its 11 PM and I get to go to bed and wake up and tell my tech crew and everyone that I couldn't finish something which I promised to finish. It irkes me beyond all ****ing believe.
