Hello,


Not only did my hard drive die on my PC last month, but now the backlight has gone on my laptop (an IBM ThinkPad 600X). Translation is becoming an expensive business for me!


I can still use the laptop by attaching it to a monitor, but surely the point of a laptop is that it\'s light and easily portable icon_smile.gif

I\'ve been told that it\'s not worth paying to have my backlight fixed - has anyone else had this problem and what did you do?


Thanks,


Joanne
