For the time being report threads that get put int he wrong place so we can get them sorted. That doesn't mean go crawling through back pages as I went seven pages deep already, nor does that mean to flood us. But if a thread gets posted in the wrong section let us know.

Couldn't resist, guessing you already started hitting necro threads before pg7 anyway.

Tell me, should a thread about laptop hardware go in the laptop or hardware troubleshooting forum? I can see it going either way.

I say laptop, as it really is a different ball game at that point.

Actually not. Seven pages only went back to early to mid December.

As c0rr0sive said, laptop is laptop.

IMO, laptops aren't that different from desktops. But w/e. I see them in both places.. I even see desktops in the laptops forum. :P

I guess you haven't had to pull many laptop apart to work on them then. I would rather fix ten desktops than have to rip apart a lappy.

I don't deal with their insides very much. Just with their main components. RAM, HDD, ODD, CPU, keyboards, tracpads. And I messed with the lcd screen, too.
