When was the last time you cleaned out the box mate LOL. I took the side of my computer of and have left it of simply because it is easier to change the leads on the hard drives plus keeps it cooler and easier to take a brush to clean it out. After all it is only bloody wires and plastic with a bit of oomph from the power supply. Live dangerously and die young to become a good looking corpse. Tell you this must the kids soon learn not to stick there cotton picking fingers into it. Might be time for a new model Tom hey and just see if you can fiddle with the old one to get it going for the kids to play with as I do not know how the feck you can handle typing on a phone it does my head in no end.

Have heard that the battery does get hot on them so maybe but then again keeping away from all this tech talk just happy to know how to stretch the string to hear the other person on my tomato can phone.

Only could happen in NZ hey mate. On the subject of hearing? Might have to go through all that hair pulling and stress again if we link up on Skype again mate as I have yet to reinstall it and sort out all the configurations again. Bummer is the operative word for that and the picture. What type of dog is the forth dog mate as it only looks like it has half a bloody body.

Puter man has been looking for mobo with the same chipset but without luck, apparently the shop where I bought the mobo sold me a discontinued model. I really wish that I could have found the receipt. So now it looks like I will lose my hard drive stuff. Hoping this Friday to get it back.
