BIG PROBLEM


Recommended Posts

Loveland, CO
Hey, that is an hour North of where I live! Where did you buy it from?
for me its different, i would of first tried to fix it myself and then by a new mobo, shops can be expensive and just add to the cost.
Exactly. Rick, you will spend 1/2 of the price of a brand new laptop that is more powerful than what you have. And you will still end up with an old laptop. (I also expect your mobo is used, so it is old old & random). Plus, when you bought your new laptop, you can re-use the drive, & sell off the rest as parts, so you'll end up spending the same anyhow. A new dual core is going for about $300, less if you can really shop.

Not as bad as a girl I know; she spent $200+ on getting a new keyboard on a 6-7 year old laptop. Then Wondered why she couldn't use Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 that she just bought on it. :doh:

I always use a external keyboard and mouse, never gotten used to a laptops controls.
I think it is better to use external anyway, since the keyboard &/or track pad (& the stuff that falls from your fingers into the keyboard to what is underneath it) it more often what goes bad first it seems. Plus, you can learn just 1 keyboard for all your computers.. Just plug the keyboard, mouse, backup HD & printer into a hub & away you can go in one USB plug.
