So how can they say that it might be a 50 50 chance its the computer, and 
a new one will PROBABLY fix it. That makes no sense to me at all. Anyway. 
Not all 20Vs do it. Mine doesnt.

If you're at limerock this weekend, let me know, Ill gladly donate mine 
if you want to try it. It has been chipped though...but you are still 
welcomed to try it.
