  2. The art of match fishing is to watch other anglers see what they are doing. Sometimes throwing in ground bait can kill a swim, especially if matches are common on this lake/pond I tend to use 6mm pellets on a size 18 using a pellet band. Fish about 12feet out in front to start with, feeding 6 to 10 pellets every five minutes, and at the same time throw another 6 - 10 pellets in the margins close to you. If you get nothing in front, come in close to the margins where you have thrown the pellets. Keep feeding 6 - 10 pellets in various places. Sometimes by moving your bait sl

  12. I had a very similar experience in my Vectra. According to my fleet manager, what happened was the catalitic coverter detected excessive carbon monoxide and shut down my turbo, with loads of black smoke and max speed was set at 60mph. I know you state you dont have a turbo, but do you have a catalitic converter? By turning off the ignition for 2mins resets the sensors and all is ok. Just waiting for it to happen again.

  20. In The BIOS under slave drive settings try turning on or off S.M.A.R.T capabilities or LBA on or off, sometimes this may help
  21. You can do a low level format, which will erase everything, including partitions. This will reset the HDD back to factory defaults. Some bios will do a low level format but be warned low level formatting can take 24hours + depending on size of hardrive. or possibly if you can get hold of the manufactures firmware you could re-flash firmware, but if re-flashing fails could totally distroy HDD But this is going to extremes.
