right, so about MY laptop... first of all, the "J" key fell off ages ago, and i have no idea how to put it back on. i've been typing without it. or if i need to, i press in the little stub thing thats left. i'm not even sure if i have the key anymore... its been months... ANYWAY, the real problem is that the monitor keeps shutting off and freezes up the computer. if i move or anything and touch the monitor, it freezes, if i don't open the monitor to the righ angle, it never starts up, if i try to shut it, it seizes up, if i adjust the power cord, it freezes.. its impossible to deal with. and everytime it freezes, its an even bigger hassle to get it started back up. also, with the power cord... even if its all the way plugged in, it sometimes says its on battery, and i have to fidget with it. minor issue, but since i'm ranting... anyway, no idea what to do, or if i can do anything. best bet to send it back to DELL? if i send it back, what do you think the odds are of getting it back before i start school in late august? Thanks for any advice!!
