  1. I went ahead and did the online transfer from NBK Kuwait to BOA in US. Transaction fee was 5 KD and no fee was charged by BOA for inward remittance. And indeed money reached US account in about 24 hrs. There was no significant difference in the exchange rate between NBK and exchange companies. Moreover exchange companies transaction fee is higher when compared to NBK.
  2. Thanks for your replies. Good to know that bank is simpler and quicker. But how about the transaction fee and exchange rate for online bank transfers? I thought exchange companies like Muzaini/Mulla give good rates in comparision to bank. Any experience on this?
  3. Hi guys, I would like to know best way to transfer money from kuwait to bank in US (bank of America). I was not sure whether to send it through money exchanges such as Muzaini or do online bank to bank transfer.Your replies would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Thanks a lot for spending so much of your time to help. Sorry i didnt check the post for last few days. I will be out of country for next couple of weeks. I so badly wanted this laptop in functioning condition for this trip. But i have to manage without it now. I will write you an email when i come back. Thanks again!
  5. Machine is pretty old: Dell inspiron 1520 with windows vista. Please let me know if you need any other info. Thanks for your time.
  6. Thanks for sharing your experience. It's looking like i may have to "Just walk around and ask" as i dont seem to have too many options..
  7. Thank you so much for your reply. You are right! I had the same fear that they will rip me off or needlessly tamper with the system as i dont know techie things. I dont have any techie friends either to try the stuff you suggested. Do let me know if you have someone reliable.
  8. Thanks for your reply. It would be great if you can suggest/specify few good techs over there?
  9. Hi guys, I have a problem with my laptop. I am unable to login. Whenever I switch it on, it shuts and restarts repeatedly on its own. I tried "system restore" and "start up repair", but were of no help. I am unable to start even in safe mode. Please suggest a place and person who can fix this for me. I don't want to reinstall windows and loose all my data! Thanks.
  10. Thanks for your elaborate reply. I finalized my booking on Etihad ( Kuwait - Abudhabi - Los Angeles) with two hours transit at Abudhabi. I hope Kuwait - Abudhabi flight will reach on time. Fingers crossed, hoping for the best !
  11. Thanks Mark.
  12. Wont they delay the connecting flight if the preceding flight from same airline gets late?
  13. Great Mark ! I think what you said makes absolute sense. Even by Etihad transit at Abudhabi is just 2 hours. Have any of you experienced US customs Pre-clearance process at Abudhabi. Is 2 hours Enough?
  14. Thanks for your response. I checked the United flight after your post. The schedule that suits me has only 2 hours transit at Washington before the next flight to LA. I was not sure if 2 hours is sufficient for custom clearance/baggage.
  15. Thanks Mark for clarifying everything. Good Day.
