    I have that "problem", yes, but I don't think it's a problem as such. I'm not sure my old laptop had it either.
    :congrats: on that exam.

    I suppose I'll just install a 3rd party software for it.

    I need it tbh, I like to know roughly how long it will last, a percentage means **** all to me. I'm testing one just now. :ta: :stuckup:

    It seems quite good.

    [s]stuckup[/s] doesn't work on TSR :no:

    Are you sure it's not a Windows setting rather than something to do with the laptop? Needs a registry tweak perhaps?

    I noticed.

    I dunno, I've not seen a solution yet tbh. Have you updated your BIOS? It fixes the flicker when you switch graphics cards. :awesome:

    Probably. Though I've set my graphics card to be on the high performance one all the time

    No wonder you don't get 10hrs. :wink2:

    What do use for drawing and etc?

    Edit:
    The processor is actually pretty good, boot times are matching my Core 2 Duo Dell. Though my HP is near enough empty in comparison to my Dell. :p:

    What does the button on the side of the pen do? And finally, does the opposite end of the point do anything?

    I didn't read the manual. :awesome:

    The button on the side of the pen emulates right click. The opposite end of the pen acts as an eraser in certain circumstances.

    It hardly matters that much tbf Time remaining countdowns aren't exactly the most reliable things in the world, they can go from 6 hours to 5 hours in a matter of seconds if you start multitasking.

    just an opinion guys


    I'm having my laptop motherboard repaired and I have a general electric plug thing and not the advent one. The guy is saying I need a new one despite its working fine!! Is he bull****ing me??

    It costs £120 for a new motherboard too. I could have saved 20 with PC World .

    It matters to me, it's annoying. Reliable or not I want it, it's a better indication than a %. :pierre:

    The plug hole on the laptop for the charger?

    £120 for a new motherboard is the price I often hear, it is a rip.

    Oh sorry, the actual charger that connects to the mains ... I'm pretty sure I can use the generic one (which I have and seems to work fine) and not have to buy a new ADVENT one?

    Is £120 a rip off? They charge £100 at PC World.
