The minor crack that turned into a nightmare …

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

So about 7 weeks ago I noticed a minor, minute little crack on the left hand side of my laptop’s screen.  Probably about 10 pixels in total that was dead.  Nothing major, but seeing as the laptop was (is) still under warrantyI decided to push my luck about a week later and see if Incredible Connection would book the laptop for repair under warranty.  They did.  They also gave me a loan unit (which turned out to be useless because I had a 64-bit Linux installed and the CPU on the loan unit was a 32-bit, but that’s ok … managed to work around that).  Three weeks (finally!) later I got the laptop back.  Yay … or was it?
