Hello everyone,

My name is Ben and I'm a graduate student in Wisconsin. I am troubleshooting a dead laptop and was attracted to the "troubleshooting dead machines" forum, which sounded like the perfect place to discuss and look for (and maybe give) advice.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome Ben. Post a link to your thread and i can take a look.

Hello jbennet,

Thanks for your warm welcome. And also thank you for reminding me to post the link. It would make sense to connect the two posts. For those of you who are interested and gracious enough to spend time and help me out, you can read about my current laptop woe here:

Thanks in advance for your help!
