You can't play UT or work on comics on a mobile device.

I found a page where they sell recycled and renewed machines with a 12 month warranty and Win7 in a bundle. But those are still expensive for me
tbh I'm also in a bit of a pickle as both my bros laptop (hard drive went bye bye after a power failure while no battery was inserted) AND my tablet (charger + battery both DEAD) have also decided to die at the worst posible time. I definetly feel ya there paper and hope that you'll find a solution to this.
Ouh... that hurts. But now I know why you are not around that much the last weeks.
I checked the HDD everything works fine.
But the laptop needs 5 tries to recognise the CD drive (running a live CD again).
Maybe the ports? But I doubt all two ports (HDD+CD) going down at the same time after a simple reboot without any errors. It's either the Bios or the controller on the motherboard ...or something else?
The Bios seems to work ...but sometimes I can't select the CD drive from the temporary device selection screen on start-up.
USB ports seem to work as well (didn't try to boot from it... but will do after this post)
It's a problem which is fixable or I have to buy new hardware.
...And I fear it's the second one.
