    It is time to buy a new laptop when more than one key on the keypad pops off and you have to put scotch tape on the letters to hold the key in place..My laptop is now 4 years old and the first key to pop off was the "T" then last week the "I" popped, and just this morning the"A" popped off..I now have scotch tape holding them all in place..

    Of course last year my CD-W/DVD ROM drive failed and I bought an external DVD writer so that I can save my photos to CD's...

    Other than all of this the computer works fine :rolleyes::eek::D

    lol... I just need a new keyboard... well dh does. Half my letters are worn off so the keys are just plain black. I know where they are because I took typing years ago in high school. DH however has a time of it. LOL!

    I'd say if you can pull off gettting a new laptop, popping keys is as good an excuse as any!

    Does your laptop have a battery that can be removed? My battery no longer takes a charge so I took it out and have it plugged in and use it in AC mode..

    That's really funny.:D:D

    Sounds like it's time for a new laptop, Teddi. I love my new HP I got for Christmas. Only weighs four pounds with the battery.

    Yes the battiery can be removed, but the problem is that it that the AC adapter part that you plug into is what is broken.. and its saudered to the mother board.. ( apparently some brilliat idea over at GATEWAY on ways to either make some one pay big bucks to fix or to buy a new laptop) I cant plug it in to the wall
