Basically, it was unusable.
I took it to the repair guy near my house 2 days ago, he's a great and quick working guy and pretty much repairs anything. He's fixed my messed up earphones, speakers, my external powered harddrive that had a problem with the power supply, electric guitar.. now my laptop is added to that list.
So anyway, I finally got my laptop back. The static problem is gone and, since I've been a loyal customer, he did it for free :-D
My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6000
Processor: AMD Turion64 2.2GHz
Graphix: Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS (256MB)
HDD: 160GB 5400RPM
Screen: 15' 1280x800
+Microsoft Wireless 3D Optical Mouse
+WD My Passport 1TB External
Perhaps out of all it's good specs, it's got a HDMI port which lets me use our flat-screen as a 1920x1080 display which is awesome for heavy video editing!
So, what computer do YOU use??
It's good to have her back!
