Well lucky me after spilling tea over my laptop keyboard and effectively killing it and being told it wasn't covered for accidental damage it appears that i am covered by my extended waranty covers accidental damage from the day you receive it . Have a courier coming tomorrow to collect it to take away and repair it free of any charge. So that's good news for once. :D:D:D:D:D

    That was good, it would have been expensive if you had to pay for it I imagine.
    Thank goodness for warranties.

    Thanks Ladies yes it was good news And aery good surprise Barbara :o:o I too like happy endings Sticky and this is cos in the event that they cannot repair it They will give me a new laptop with the same specifications as the current one. So am really really glad that I took out the extended warranty. although I had forgotten that I'd got the warranty :oops: :oops: until the catalogue company mentioned it. It would have cost me around 150 pounds to repair Karen so yes a bit too expensive for my liking. It was taken away to day and I should hear the result in about a weeks time.

    You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. I could not believe this!!! It is from an orthopaedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!

    1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are a nutcase!.......)
    and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

    2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.

    I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.
