The laptop was on its third battery and had survived three power plug fixes, one touch pad replacement, one memory upgrade and one false alarm when an internal paper sticker came loose and got caught in the fan. I've had it completely apart twice; the first power plug fix was done on an extended warranty. I'm gonna miss it.
Oh, wait. I think I have another laptop hard drive around somewhere. It might work. I could install the Ubuntu Linux derivative, SmashBang Linux, that works with Tosha's chipset. I recently used SmashBang Linux on an old Celeron box with the same graphics chipset. The box makes a good home mp3 music player.
