I guess that there is not a good idea to accomplish the definition essay by your own efforts! I think, this is better to buy the term papers from essay writing service, just because that can save free time.

What do you do when the COA has been rubbed off and illegible at the bottom of the lappie? I found out that the new matte paper label rubbed off quite quickly. Does one have to call the OEM? Or will M$ provide a new one?

 I recently re-worked a Dell Latitude LS, and it hasn't worked since.

1) the dell website has no drivers for the monitor (not that any special ones are really needed for an old lcd), but in the last remake I found ones that worked better.

2) the dell website has no audio drivers for my computer, and in fact won't even tell me which audio system in in there. I'm getting tired of beeps.

3) I updated the bios to the most recent. How bad could it be I thought since the most recent for that computer is over 6 years old. Well shortly after that I realized my battery won't charge. Either the charging capacitor on the mobo has shorted out at the same time by extraordinary coincidence, or something in the latest is messed up. I haven't tried rolling back to an earlier bios yet, but man what a headache. Desktops are still so much easier.

I would at least get the display drivers from the manufacturer (ATI/NVIDIA) .

For a laptop?  Not happening, friend.  Those come specific from the manufacturer of said laptop -- you can't just install generic Forceware or Catalyst drivers and call it a day.

I don't know about ATI, but installing NVIDIA drivers shouldnt be a problem:

Well I'll be damned.  Has it been that long since I've had to install notebook videocard drivers?

Ok, Nvidia works just fine.  ATI = no support for notebooks, save for what you can get from the original manufacturer.
