You will be glad you did. I have my spare laptop now so if something happens I got backup. My little one is on an air card so if the house Internet goes out I still have access to the Internet. I saw on tv tonight if you get a blue screen you could have a virus.

Whatever it was, the guy didn't fix it for very long. When I saw that on the TV and saw the blue screen I thought of you, because i had just read your discussion.

I will have to check out the netbooks. How do you clean between your keys 3SnuggleBunnies? I use a babywipe on the end of a fingernail file to get down in there.

Is it because it is too old or some system broken ? I have been using a Toshiba Satellite laptop for some years now, and it has been working very well. I carry it along whenever I travel too, in my country and overseas, very light and easy to carry.

That would drive me nuts. It sounds like it maybe in the typing pad area. That could be causing all of the problems.

Ahh it would be hard to have a key board that barely worked, it would drive me crazy. I recently got a new computer (which made me so happy) because the computer I was using was getting really old and was barely working at all anymore. It made me so happy and accomplished to buy myself a computer. I hope your new computer works great and causes no more problems to you

That will be great. I would like to buy me one also but I do not know enough about them to make them work right and quickly for me.

I'm glad I am used to reading this sort of typing. lol Nice to get a new computer. I will get a new at the beginning of the year barring anything else that might come up. I enjoy getting new ones and setting it all up. I think I will continue with the same brand I have been getting all along.

I try to stay with the same brand sometimes too just because that is what I am used to unless the old one is just pure junk and high dollar.

I can see that it is skipping letters from your discussions and other responses. If you can't have it fixed then maybe it is time to get a new one. Keep your budget in mind so that you are not paying out of household bills. Gosh doesn't it seem that when we think we might be okay with bills something always comes up.

Amen to that. We have had to replace so much this year and we still are paying on a couple of them but have to have them, like the central air and furnace.

I had a bedside table before for my computer now just a damned box

If your computer was the problem of only the keyboard, maybe you can replace it. If you believe that the conditions of the object are no longer satisfactory to you, maybe better buy a new one..

Hmm. Can I ask what brand are you using? Next time before you buy the laptop, maybe you could try and see if the keys are easy to press and whether the keyboard is something you're used to? You could also try just buying a keyboard that you can plug in to the laptop instead of buying a new laptop.

Hi dear! That's also my problem with my laptop now,lol! The letters "t" and "g" and number "5" can't be typed that's why I had to use the onscreen keyboard,but it's really time consuming so I bought a USB keyboard and that's onle cheap and now I am enjoying my laptop again when typing,hehe! If you don't have the budget yet,you can try just buying a keyboard. I bought it here for only P240,00 which is equivalent to $6 in your currency.

Good for you!!! New laptops are always a wonderful thing. I had some problems with my laptop last month, and I thought I'd need a new one, but as it turned out, my genius of a husband (he really is a genius!!) managed to fix it for me. How wonderful. Sure saved me a lot of money...that got spent when something else happened. LOL Atleast we didn't have to spend double money on the crisis of the month AND my need for a new computer. LOL

LOL Either you need to buy a new laptop(or fix it) or stop Mylotting. I think the laptop is in order. Good luck with finding a great price.
