They told me that the problem can't be fixed but they were so kind to show me how i could still switch the laptop on without using the button. It's a nightmare trying to press whatever it is i am supposed to press because it's hidden under the cover and i just randomly press things until it comes on. If i am honest i don't even know what it is i am pressing, i just wait for it to come on. I am not sure how long this trick is going to work for so i have started looking at buying a new computer.
I have looked on the internet and i just can't believe the prices. The cheapest laptop i found was costing just under 300pounds and the price is way way outside what i can afford or should i say what i want to spend. To be honest i was shocked. I am sure those are the prices but because i have never needed to buy one i just never paid attention to the prices.
One of my friends suggested that i should buy a refurbished laptop/netbook. The cheapest was just over 150pounds which is something i can afford. The problem is i am not sure how reliable it will be and i have never used a netbook before. I do not use my laptop for anything fancy, just general stuff. Surfing the net, research for assignments and using word to write assignments. I do not know what to do at the moment, the only thing i am sure of is that i need to start putting money aside because come September i should have a brand new computer or a refurbished one.
If you know of any codes/ vouchers going round for shops that sell laptops feel free to let me know.
