Yellow head

Dropped Computer

I've had this faulty macbook knocking around the place for about a year. Having invested in a new machine (a nice mini mac), I'd stuck the laptop under a pile of stuff on top of the wardrobe, and then forgot about it.

The other week, I was getting another object off the dusty pile that exists on top of said wardrobe, when the macbook, achieving a life of its own, slid off and crashed to the floor.

Since then, amazingly, the laptop has been working perfectly. Go figure. So my tip in fixing broken computers, is to drop them from a height of approximately six feet, onto a carpeted floor.
