[Chat] dang...

Dropped my ASUS laptop three foot out of the truck. Still works but won't work unless the power adapter is plugged in.

Try dropping it again. That might fix it.

Suppose you tried the old remove & replace battery trick.

Ya, it sounds like something got loosened up. Try re-seating the battery

For those north of the Mason Dixon line that translates to "doggone it!" In Canadia it means you took a nap and missed summer!

at least if you drop a laptop in Canadia, it lands in the soft snow and doesn't break!

p.s., I didn't need to wear a coat this morning. just a hoodie. summer must be here!

I always said "dag blast it" when I lived in the Lone Star nation.

If replugging in the battery doesn't help, perhaps a ribbon cable has yanked free and you might have to go inside the lappy to fix it.

Run it through the dishwasher, that may help!

Dunno about that. Truck stop dishwashers are prolly kinda sketchy! Maybe better off at the car wash!

Just wondered if you followed squirt's suggestion. I thought you might, but I knew she was just trying to distract you so she could get your M&Ms.

The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

Wondering if you got lucky???

I've got an ASUS. I think it's by far and away the best laptop I've ever owned. Just did a clean install on it a few weeks ago; got rid of Home Premium -- I don't like it -- and put W7 Ultimate on it. I also upgraded it to 8G RAM as soon as I got it; runs superbly.
