    :blabla:No display, the usual Mac voodoo gang signs/keyboard combinations are doing nothing. Pisses me off. Tried connecting an external display, nada. Connected my backup HDD to a spare iMac so I can get at my password files, et cetera. AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT I have an AlienWare 17 laptop for review purposes... the bad news is that it's running Windows 8.1, which reminds me of those psycho faggots who'd use a staple gun on their scrotums. If this thing could run Mac OS X I'd be bitching less.

    Do I get the MacBook repaired again? The keyboard was replaced and needs replacing again. OH HAI WELCOME TO MONDAY MORNING.

    I have never sat at my shitty computer when it malfunctioned and envisioned men shooting their scrotum with staples.

    Heh. It's occurred to me. Apparently the thing is DOA, Apple doesn't mfg the parts any longer. The repair place (crywolf.com) directed me to somebody in town who works on old Macs. I'm using Kid #1's old iMac. And hoping my backup works... : pope:

    Why don't you just install Windows 7 if you hate 8.1 so much? It'll only be a couple of months before 10 will be out that'll have the best of both.

    So it's old enough that you can't get parts for it anymore and people are calling it garbage? :jj:
