It might be that the room isn't bright enough but besides that I never heard of your problem

Major REP to those who help me seek out a place to buy them!

EDIT: Oh wait, I think I found them already. Do you guys think these are it:

You have to remove the screws under the battery in order to remove it.

i recently tried to overclock my GPU via nTune. However, when I run the application I get the BSOD. it is says something about nvclock64 failure.
I have the Gateway P-7811FX with the 9800M GTS. Im on Windows Vista 64bit. Maybe this is why I get the BSOD? Becuase i have 64bit? Anywho, anyway I can fix this? or maybe use a different program to overclock it?

Also, has anyone found out why the CPU is hitting 98C? I have undervolted my laptop to a stable voltage of .9375V, however, I still hit 98C when playing any game. But when I just run Orthos on it, my CPU doesn't go higher than 56C. In game, TZS0 hits 98C. I was just thinking maybe the CPU bottlenecks? Not sure. But anyone found out why? I would like to know. Thanks.

I installed the upgrade 32 bit driver for my 171XL-FX And have had no problems. I got a 250 pt increase on 3dmark06.

it might work, however, u may have to adjust the microphone boost level to max. i have that problem to. like it works but its Really Really low. so i just adjust my microphone boost level to about 36% and mic volume to 100.
try that, if thats not it go reinstall driver.
