Sorry for bumping this, but you can probably buy XP Pro from your school for under 20 bucks. Tons of schools have student discounts so you might want to check that out if you didn't already purchase it.
So I pulled out the BIOS battery to try and fix some issues I've been having and after I plugged it back in I get no video output or anything from the laptop. It turns on and the hdd light blinks a few times as it spins up but that's it.
Capslock/etc doesn't work and neither does hooking up an external monitor. I'm not too sure what else to do...
I've seen threads where people reported this problem but no one came up with a simple solution (other than adding two huge steel bars to the outside of the case...)
Is it possible to use JB Weld or Bondo or Gorilla Glue to repair the damage? I've already loosened up the hinges (very simple, just time consuming + missing screws).
Does anyone know of a simple way to repair this screen?
I plan on ordering a 3880 or 5720 from pctorque and I wanted to give...
What RAM are you using to upgrade? I have the same laptop and want to upgrade the RAM. I tried buying Corsair pc3200 value select, cas 2.5, but it wasn't compatible. I looked up some Micron stuff, but I'm not sure.
Any ideas what I should get? I'd like to get 1gb total. CPUz says my current RAM is pc2100.
I've searched and tried RC4WA but that doesn't work. I also tried iTouch but there are no options to change the key arrangements. I don't know what version of iTouch I need though.
I mainly use my laptop as my mp3 player for my car. It's a pain to get a phone call and have to open the laptop and then pause it with the mouse or whatnot. I'd much rather use the controls on the outside to save me trouble and the possibility of getting killed.
If anyone has any advice...
