Well for a while now (you may have noticed) my keys have been a bit sticky and temprimental. Like I have to press packspace to press 5. Icant put a space in after a capital letter, and Ihave to use the right shirft key for some letters to write capitals. I havent spilt a drink or anything on it so I dont know why its doing this. But needless to say when I restart my course later in the year Iwill not be able to type essays. Also I have the laptop on most of the day, and it has a tendancy to get very hot and the fans go like mad, and everything runs slow and the internet normally crashes. How long to laptops normally live for? Mine is a Dell Inspiron and is nearly 3 years old and gets used pretty much all day every day.
