[access-uk] Re: Do graphics cards on laptop pack up?

Hi George

No the laptop is about 10 inches from the wall and the lid
is touching the wall at an angle. How easy is it to get and
replace the switch in that case. Mum had a look at the
screen a while ago and when she touched the sides it
flickered on and off and when I run my hands along the
bottom of the lid the screen flickers too. The laptops are
out of warranty and mum is good with electronics so may be
she'll be able to fit a new switch of what ever is needed.

They do, but from what you describe, it sounds more like a
suspect lid switch rather than a dud card.  When you say
"right back to the wall", do you mean "perpendicular to the
keyboard" - vertical?

The screen on my toshiba laptop has gone all wavy and
flickers and won't light up properly, when I open the lid up
I have to push the lid right back to the wall to get the
screen to come on. Is this likely to be the graphics card
and can they be replaced and are they expensive?

        Hi
        I see a new version of iTunes has become available.
If I download this, will the newly installed J-Tunes scripts
still work?
