My Laptop Is Growing!

Am I "jinxed?" This is the second time I received a second-hand laptop from my sons...

Case number one... my son gave me his five year old Toshiba... when he handed it over to me, it was truly fine. After using for a twelve months, it refused to be switched on one fine day...

Case number two... my another son passed me his Dell (3 years old) and it was also truly fine when I took it from him. Well, in less than a month, see what I found when I switched the laptop on...
Two black lines appearing out of nowhere.....
and the lines are "growing taller" each day....
Any remedy for this??
Anyone experienced this before??


  1. LOL....the laptops "overworked" :p. Just joking.

    anyway. the black lines are cracks or like TV rosak kind of line? Maybe need to send to shop

  2. it's not crack but the screen pixel seems to have some dead pixel problem. If it doesnt bothers u then just leave as it since changing the whole screen might cost you rm300-500. Might as well get a new lappy :)

  3. I'm using my daughter's old laptop...ASUS, 5 years old - no problem leh? Touch wood....

  4. kathy: as u said,..maybe overworked la! or overheated.. hahaha...

    henry: is it due to overheating?

    stp: why do we parents seem to be using second hand laptops? :)

  5. haha too much blogging and FB :p

    looks like wear and tear over the years?

  6. disturbing to see the lines on the screen right? probably it's time to get yourself a new one lo..or an ipad!! :D

  7. Guess yr laptop overworked liaw. Yeah, when our kids get something new, sure the old one will be given to us, like my handphone, 2nd hand too. But as long as it is still usable, it should be alright.

  8. Looks like its time to buy a new one for mother's day :D

  9. recently there's a single red line on the left side of my laptop. It's still here but no problem at all.

  10. trekking your blog!!! that's what happend to our camera. the black ones are liquid. it will spread throughout the screen if napabayaan lang daw.


  11. kristie: blogging u mean.. hehee..

    agnes: sometimes blocking certain words..

    irene: we are always the hand-down people! hahha..

    daniel: hinting ma...

    wenn: mine is here on the right..

    icegurl: hope not that serious..

  12. Must be the LCD. Yes, it's time for you to get a new laptop :). How about getting one of those tablets?

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
