Cleaned it, and started the process of planning its replacement. Intel is the way for now. Too bad nothing is in stock as far as parts go.

Learned the wonderful world of scissor hinge key caps on my sons gaming laptop (MSI Leopard GL75). Of course it is the "a" key. The hinge no longer stays connected to the metal piece on the keyboard.

Not sure if it is warrantyable. Each key with silicone boot, cap, and hinge is $13. I want to move the windows key to that spot.

This is his do homework on laptop, and somehow I got upsold by him and my wife to spend a little extra for a gaming laptop instead of a plastic touchscreen low end it'll last 4 years doing homework on in college...not much homework is done on it.

All my Apple keyboards are the same style, and after 15 years my primary one has a sticky 0 on the number pad, otherwise the scissor type keys are good, but I don't game on it and beat on a key at the very top...so there is that.

I don't think I've ever seen a keyboard where the Windows key was the same size as the letter keys.

Ended up buying another SATA Cable so I could install my new 2TB HDD. Western Digital was rather generous not to give me a SATA Cable. Then just miscellaneous reorganizing stuff. And putting photos and stuff into my google drive.

That's probably not the last time you'll curse Western Digital.

Reinstalled Windows, and every program that I wanted to keep.
Now I can finally open the Radeon software.
