    I'm Fed Up With Creative

    I had the opposite experience with Xplosion, nothing but problems. But the latest driver release ( http://www.auzentech.com/site/download/updates.php ) fixed all the problems. They must have hired someone smart on the software driver side. It no longer mutes the microphone when starting BF2. The mic level is still low for this expensive piece of equipment, but I can live with that.

    I thought that 30 LCD monitor was cool

    It's cool, but you'd have to have 3 8800GTX's to run it right, I would think. That's alot pixels.

    DIY Street Linux Thread.

    Please post your output from 'sensors'. I'd post that here for others to see, and if you're having trouble with it, in that forum post at Ubuntu. There is plenty of help and examples on the web on how to 'not' report temps/fans etc that are not valid. I remember that I did have to tune up the formula's to get something approximate to what mbm/bios was reporting. You usually have 3 temps, MB/Sys, CPU, and NB chipset. I'm not running it right now so I can't be for sure. Keep googling and if you find something out that you think is good info, post it here. Thanks.

    The ULTIMATE MBM 5 Settings/Help Thread

    Disregard what I said, as I tried to select uguru and it doesn't show up in the selection (although I've read somewheres that uguru does work). I have no idea how to enable or select it. It's in the .ini files.

    DIY Street Linux Thread.

    It's probably not detecting that S3 Virge correctly. It's easy to screw up the X windows totally when playing around with it. Search the web for the real instructions, but in general, you boot into single user mode, run 'xfconfig' from the command line and work from there. Then, boot into multi-user mode or run startx from the command line to start X again. Plenty of documentation on the web to get you there.

    I looked at your manual: http://download.intel.com/support/motherbo...0jr2tpsrev1.pdf and can only say, Try using the config wizard and the select 'uguru' and see what happens. Did the board come with a cd with any 'utilities' or extras?
