    you can get 128GB kingston Ultra's for a little more and its much faster. Im seeing lot of 120/128GB SSDs dropping to just under the £70 mark.

    The 240/256GB SSDs are already on their way south of £140, I don't see why you wouldn't get those instead

    Replace that ram with some of this 30nm goodness..... just look at the reviews for OC potential..... then get the divider up and it will perfectly compliment that CPU overclock and at that price it's a must!.....

    LOL!

    Have that already! Cheers though. My mobo only wants to run it 1 channel at the moment (2133) but I may be able to fix that :)

    Thanks though. I got the non LP version for about £37 delivered from Europe

    Just got a mates laptop to have a look at, power seems to be there but nothing showing any signs of life - No screen backlight, no fan spin up and no ejecting of the DVD drive is this a dead motherboard?

    Shouldn't the CD drive eject anyway when powered? If so suspect your power again maybe?

    True it should but the power light lights up when turned on and also the light for when the charger is plugged in so there must be power to it?

    Go to Rotterdam, get high in the day time, drunk in the night time, wake up with strange people!

    I REALLY recommend camp sites when going over to the Nederlands, you'll meet so many cool people. That will be willing to share tents and more ;)

    Any morse code blink? It can point to errors. You can manually eject CD, just look for a hole in the drive (usually next to the eject button) and poke something sharp and sturdy in.

    Hmm, what can I buy with £5k ...

    I didn't know laptops did this, I need to get with the times huh :laugh:

    I'll have a little read with Google and then have another look at the laptop.

    :toast:


    What to buy with 5K... I'd go with a Blue Tree Python. :)

    The laptop does blink the low battery light (one long blink) but I can't find any codes for these blinks?

    EDIT: Actually I don't it was any sort of blink code after all, The lights just stay on if it is plugged into the AC adapter.
