If true, he is awfully misinformed about the prices of cigarettes here. :)

I'm getting the feeling that you are resisting any form of advice given. A quick google search revealed that WD-40 actually costs less than a pack of cigarettes. Your move...

Actually, by his IP address, he lives about 100 km from me.

No, WD-40 is not an "advised" product (by me) to do this kind of contact cleaning, I used it as an example, as the three "leading" products (for MECHANICAL unblocking/lubricating) are:

Product<-Maker/Brand

WD-40 <- Rocket Chemical (that makes a whole range of products) see: http://www.wd40-italianspecialist.it/ "WD-40 Detergente Contatti"

SVITOL <- Arexons (that makes a whole range of products)

CRC 5-56 <- CRC (that makes a whole range of products)

The above are obviously NOT exactly the SAME product, but they are very similar.

BTW:

http://www.wd40.it/wd-40-company_pag_pg12.aspx

The "inventor" of WD-40 is called Norm Larsen.

The founder of CRC is Norman Larsen:

Concidence? Certainly NOT:

@Phaenius

Now, be nice, and get a can of R-11 from here:

http://www.vitacom.ro/Products/2538/SPRAY-R-11-200/Spray-curatire-contact-due-ci-200ml.html

for 23 Lei or a can of G-22 for the same price:

http://www.vitacom.ro/Products/2532/SPRAY-G-22-200/Spray-curatire-contact-(uscat)-due-ci-200ml.html

or save 4 Lei getting one of G-20:

http://www.vitacom.ro/Products/2531/SPRAY-G-20-200/Spray-curatire-contact-(uscat)-due-ci-200ml.html

(and actually getting the most suited product among the three ;)).

Min: 1:40

So:

WD-40 (from your link) 11.99 lei + 23.46 lei (p&p) = 35.45 lei

Pack of cigarettes 12 lei (since I don't smoke, I thought a pack is 5 lei). Anyway, it's 3 times a pack of WD-40, ordered from internet and lower if you buy it from the local store, but still costs more than a pack of cigarettes.

Jaclaz:

In my Vitacom store, they only have G-22.

G-20 doesn't say it's anti oxidation. Besides, it's not in stock.

So, I should buy G-22.

I recall Praktiker, Dedeman and Bricostore stores being present in Timisoara, all of them selling contact cleaners, not necessarily WD-40. But that's NOT the point. The point IS that where's a will, there's ALWAYS a way.

Sadly, your statement is totally wrong. But this is more of a religious and philosophical debate and won't insist.

I've been to Dedeman yesterday. In the whole store (which isn't small btw) they do have just one product, designed for car use. I don't go to Praktiker, because they never (NEVAH !) have anything I look for and Bricostore I am sure is the same. All three are not electronics specialized stores, but house and gardening. So, unless I need to clean my shovel or plant some seeds, there's no reason to go there. It's easy to point fingers without knowing the whole story and all the facts.

The REAL point is I can only use G-22 because that is the ONLY thing I could get at a reasonable price. I cannot spend close to 10% on cleaning products the price of a new card who is suppose to be working perfectly.

Another point is obstacles can be found in any step you take, some have more, some have less, you can't avoid them all and you can't wrestle the mountains (in Romanian it makes more sense :)).

BUT the difference NOW is that every step you take (and every bond you break, every claim you stake, every contact you clean :w00t:) .... we'll be watching you! :ph34r:

Unfortunately for you, ALL the three stores I mentiones have CAR sections where they carry some sort of contact cleaner. Heck, you could try the simplest method: a can of compressed air to clean the slots on the motherboard and some medical spirit on the contacts of the card. It's NOT rocket science, nor brain surgery. I'm not debating anything here, nor making this religious or philosophical but until now, every single piece of advice you were given was met with "I will do..." , "I will try..." and so far, apart from (sometimes meaningless) talk, you did nothing. PLEASE, put in practice what jaclaz, submix8c, bphlpt and my other colleagues told you to do and return with some CLEAR findings so we have a starting point in helping you further.
