In Topic: Laptop battery wont charge

09 February 2018 - 12:34 AM

...the laptop is still so powerless it drops its CMOS settings when I remove AC...

 

Low main battery means it also drops the settings? As an aside here that smells suspiciously like the CMOS backup battery is also borked (I'm assuming that it's got one, for the price/specs it'd bloody well better have..).

 

And/or the BIOS itself is somewhat scrambled and needs a serious reset or even a full reflash to clear it out and restore some sanity to it.

...Yanks get it easier because most of their foods are fortified with vitamins...

Processed Sugar is a vitamin??

Ummmm, 'Scythe - think you've missed a few points so far, and you really need to draw clear differentiations 'tween normal everyday road users/hoons/track boys et al.

Because scrolling through all this again to try and pick up the ghist of your later posts it's getting rather scrambled with this bouncing 'tween comments/opinions 'n observations on vastly different real-world scenarios.

 

eg why would you be highlighting probable results of unmodified braking setups at the end of the straight on a track? Of course standard brakes/tyres/suspension etc will give you grief if you push them well beyond normal driving conditions - what's your actual point there? Make yer mind up, willya?

 

And just because someone hasn't had or reported having a prang in x-decades of driving does not mean they're inherently a better driver and deserve cheaper insurance risk/deserve cheaper premiums. 

Apart from your noted aged nitwits on the phone, for all your weekly driving how many clowns do you observe on a daily basis that demonstrate they really need serious slapping around the head 'n shoulders? You going to tell us for all the mileage you clock up (even here in BrizVegas) that you don't encounter a good percentage of mobile dickheads right across the age spectrum, on both two and four wheels?

YOU'RE stressed out?

 

7 years it's taken me to get my Son up from Victoria to do some serious fishing.

Finally lobs up all keen and enthusiastic, we drive near three hours to my old stamping ground up the coast, it pissed down rain eeeeeeevery time the tide was right to go out. Barely caught a feed with three of us in the boat when we did hit the water.

All we heard from the locals in the interim was "Should have been here last week... the fishing really went off before the rain turned up.... here, look at the pictures of what the other Club members were weighing in last week...".

 

And they wonder why people go postal.
