    I'd put 40 pound in the bank, rent a decent dvd and get a cheap bottle of rum and coke

    Take the bust Sony Laptop into PC World (or better still, a professional outfit like MicroAnvika) and get it fixed professionally for your sister, as you don't seem to be making any progress!

    I am very tempter however by the thought of those nice headyphones, preblem is, i would be getting some sony in ear headphones for my new nwa3000 !

    AH! My life is so hard!

    PS: I dont really need that keyboard and micro anvika youy say for the laptop repair? trouble is, there is no local microanvika, i would have to go up to london.
