well, not quite.... So I boot up my laptop this morning at the office and I get nothing but colorful fuzz on the monitor. Hmm.. odd. reboot. same. reboot. same. lather rinse repeart some 20 times. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I hook it up to an extrnal monitor and it works fine on the external monitor, so....great, looks like the most expensive part on my dell laptop just died on me, the built in LCD, shit. Call up dell, get a ticket number, arrange to send it in for repair/replacement since I'm still under warranty. So, as I'm looking for a box to pack the machine into I leave it on, attached to the external monitor--and sitting on my coffee table, about a foot and a half off the ground. My cat then apparently gets drawn to all the fuzzy colors scrolling by starts sniffing around, trips on the power cord and then proceeds to accidently tug it down to the ground....the machine falls a foot and a half to hit my carpeted floor....and what do you know...all the random color, flicker and fuzziness of my display suddenly disappears. Now I've got to explain to the dell tech reps that uh..yeah, my cat fixed my computer. anyhow, I'm assuming, some connection inside must have been loose and the drop just happened to snap it back into place... shrug..if it were a desktop I would have just ripped it apart and tried to solve myself, but heh, expensive laptops still under warranty....from now on, I'll always leave to my cat to fix.
