    • Hi All    I've spent 2 weeks without a phone and over 4 hours between phone and livechat talking to samsung about my broke s10e phone screen.   I bought the phone in June 2021 and long and short of it the phone screen broke while in my pocket. I made a call before getting in the car and it was fine. Went to make a call when I got out the car and the screen had cracked and some LCD damage. The LCD damage has now fixed itself. I called samsung to get this repaired and they flat out refused to repair it as it was physically damaged and their warranty only covers manufactuer defects and that all their phones are rigoursly tested. I told them that if all their phones are rigoursly tested and don't break in peoples pockets just like that then my screen must be one with a manufacturers defect and that it is covered by the warranty then. At which point after climbing as high up the chain as I could this was the only answer I would get.    Is there anything I can do here ? I am not lying about it breaking in my pocket. It's got a full phone case only things showing are front/back camera and fingerprint reader and no marks besides from placing my case on. I just don't feel that it's fair that they expect me too pay £190 to fix the screen when it is obviously defective. What if the replacement screen breaks randomly then they will just expect me to pay another £190 I expect.    I've also tried approaching EE who my phone contract is with to which I was advised to go  to samsung or they could quote for a repair or I could early upgrade.   Please any advice would be greatly apreciated I'm at my wits end here.

    • Complain to Mazda UK.  Tell them you've got the safety recall and you don't want to use Mazda Crap Dealer for the work but your nearest alternative is 40 miles away.  Ask what they suggest you do...   Of course, as you've already got it booked in etc you probably don't want to mess about with it, and it is a safety recall so needs attention.  And your old dealer might not be happy with you - but can they be any worse?  Think about it.  You could just complain and see how they treat you in 3 weeks time when you bring it in...   But I like being awkward... and it can have it's downside...

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hey,

 

I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 graphics card, which i've been told is old, so i'm searching for something that will make my games go faster. The main game I play is an MMO called Star Wars Galaxies. Would a graphics card make it go faster? It takes a couple of mins to load up each time I go to a different planet ect, where as it normally take others like 10 seconds. Could a graphics card help it go fast, or a new computer altogether?

 

Cheers :)

a better graphics card will certainly help--but its pointless getting a top card if your running a pentium 3 or something ancient

 

 

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB PCI-E 2.0 - Aria Technology

 

thats a great price for a card that has run everything i have thrown at it

 

a little more info on your set up would help,it could be possible a few system tweaks could help you

agreed the above graphics card would do, but the specs would depend as well

 

go to my computer, right click it, then properties and then at the bottom at computer: it should give some basic details, post itup

your cpu is ok but ur ram is low, upgrade your ram from 512 to atleast 1gb, or if you can do, to 2gb, then you should be rolling

His motherboard is probably lacking a PCI-E socket for any decent graphics cards, he'll probably have an older AGP socket, in which case it'd be cheaper for him to throw the lot out and buy a new pc for gaming.

Agreed, your cheapest, easiest and IMO best option is to get a new machine.
