anyway I had an old m6nbe from like 3 1/2 years back that I bought right before pci-e came out... lasted me quite awhile, I had it workin great except that keyboard wasn't working, I had it disabled and was using external usb one, everything was working, was gaming still on it and it ran quick with the quip, that is until my friends car got egged, he decided I had done it and he broke into my dads house and cracked an egg over my busted keyboard. Now theres definatly a short in the mobo or something, its not doing the memory jig where it boots on then off, when I press the power button, led turns on then off real quick, and sometimes it makes this horrible screaming noise, I'm sure its totally bunked, just wondering if its even worth sending away to be fixed, I could probably buy a new laptop with the money it would take to fix this antique. Just pissed because it was still holding up great. Wondering as well where I should sell it for parts, I mean i still have a 60gb 7200 and the 80 gb 7200 thats in it, some 512 2700 sod's, the dothan 1.7 processor, ect. Course Id rather just sell the whole thing for parts. Anyone got any ideas, i got my eight year old dell 4200 running great in the meanwhile... but yea no more laptop. BTW asus makes great lappys, they seem to just last and last as long as you don't get an egg broken over them lawl. Previously I had ruined the internal keyboard by spilling milk all over it, yet it kept on chugging, guess it couldn't take the sticky egg mess lawl.
