Ha... If only I had taken out the extended warrantee.  I
never believed that
these were worth the money.  Still, would the warrantee
cover me for
accidental damage? I'll leave it drying out until this
afternoon and see if
it works.  
 


Cheers

Hi barry

Did you take out extended warranty when you purchased the
streem?

Thanks for the suggestion, Barry, but I've had the Stream
for over two years
now, so Tom's not going to cover it.  Still, it might have
only fried the
battery, which I can buy a replacement from Humanware.

 


Cheers

Barry

Hi Barry,

Nightmare!  I did that with a Nokia about 4 years back.  The
Nokia did work
again but it's camera was recked and it doesnt' remember the
Date/Time if
it's powered off.  I still have it and have used it as an
emergency spare.

Regarding your Stream...  You maybe covered still by
Humanware if it is less
than a year old.  Try contacting Tom burton in Tech Support
Humanware UK
tom.burton@xxxxxxxxxxxxx .

I feel your pain!  Two days before I went on Microsoft Cert
training (only
in the last week or so), I managed to dump a cup of tea off
a side table
over my 3 week old MSI Laptop that I bought in Canada!  The
thing was
wrecked.  I dried it out for 24 hours but when I opened it
the RAM,
Motherboard and CPU were covered with stickyness from the
Milk in the tea.
I had to run up to PC World and buy a Toshiba I3 as I needed
a machine to
take away with me.  Luckily our house insurance with Loyds
are covering the
liquid laptop!

Perhaps it's the name?  Maybe we're cursed?  Lol  Sorry
fella I know it
sucks.

Best of luck with Humanware!

Barry.
