1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Just thought I would post my small victory here:

    My girlfriend's D3 keyboard backlight went out and only her number keys wouldn't work. I checked for warranty, and wouldn't you know, it expired 2 days prior. Since it was out of warranty, I figured I would take a stab at repairing it myself if it was something obvious.

    To make a long story short, one of the connections was only partially connected, pushed it back in carefully, re-assembled, and all is well...backlight and all.

    Cheers!
