There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything. Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur.

Del Vostro V13 series Laptop – Hard disk errors

Its been a very long time since my hard drive died on my laptop, so when my dell decided to give up the ghost it could be said that I was not best pleased... Having stripped the machine down and done a whole load of diagnostics I have narrowed it down to 1 thing.  Well after research on the net and confirmation there appears to be a common fault with these devices.  The Hard drive cable between the mother board and the daughter board connecting to the hard drive appears to be faulty. its a fairly cheep fix (about £10 off ebay for a new cable) but its a whole pain in the lower back getting the device to bits in the first place. image   Its a matter of the screws on the underside, the 2 on the rear and then the usual man handling to slide the cover off the bottom.  Just a tip here, BE VERY CAREFUL when you clip up the connectors to the ribbon cable. They are fragile and a nightmare to replace.
