    I have bought a gaming chair and when i insert a 12v power supply which it needs, before i press the power button on the chair, the sub woofer in the base of the chair starts vibrating. Anyone know what might be wrong or what i should do?

    Is it new? It could be a bad or loose connection.

    is it an Xrocker ? If so it's supposed to do that. Turn the vibrate down with one of the knobs on the side panel.

    Is it new or used? Because a common problem you'll encounter with used gaming chairs is subwoofer failure due to excessive manfat ingress.

    You need to ask the seller next time, how many times he masturbated on or made love to the chair. Also take precautions when making love to the chair yourself. Profilactics, baby wipes etc.

    Have you checked the woofer is OK? Are you feeding it and walking it correctly? Maybe get it checked out at the vets.

    Ask vizzini. It will probably need a defrag and rebuild database.

    It doesn't even have a cup holder! Where do you put your tea? Serious question!

    Does it need an AC or DC 12v supply though?

    Also, something about wanking.

    You don't have to be Vizzini to know that's not the answer as it has no ethernet port.

    Good point! Maybe try flashing it with DD-WRT firmware then...
  • Deleted user 3 September 2015 21:55:01
    It may not have an Ethernet port but what about an RJ45
  • Deleted user 3 September 2015 22:38:11
    How long you had it? Reading about them on the Argos site, they're a bit unreliable as the cables pass near the control pad and are easy to snag. Take it back if less than a year.

    Or defrag it if over a year.

    You did read the post about prophylactics and baby wipes before you did that, right?
