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.

Hinge on the laptop broke.
It's a HP nc4400, circa 2007 vintage. Works alright, and I have a couple extended batteries, power supplies and docking stations for this series of HP "business" laptops. I have been meaning to take it apart and do some cleaning, since the fan seems to run more than it should. Also have given some thought to swapping the screen from the tc4400, which is a convertible tablet version-base is the same, just screen is different (better).

Almost bid on one, then found a 6910p for cheap, so bid on that. Had one of these for work, it was my favorite to this day. It's part of the same "business" line, so all my accessories will still work. We'll see how that goes.

Also tried to put Win10 on one of the kids' computers. Still have an image from when I upgraded the drive a few months ago, so trying out on that first.

Process got to 9%, stayed there for a while, then I got a dialog that said "Windows 10 installation failed. [OK]". Gee, thanks, that's helpful. Went through the logs, nothing really explaining exactly what happened. Might be the AV, when I get a chance I'll disable that and try again. I really don't want to do a clean install, although there are benefits to that, too.

One of my Xeons took a crap. Keep getting MCEs resulting in a kernel panic.
Tried turning off Hyperthreading, and switching it to "1 core" (you don't get to choose which, though) in the BIOS, still didn't help. Had to put the original CPUs back in, so now I only have 8 non-HT cores @2.13GHz instead of 8 HT cores @2.93GHz (which the system interprets as 16 cores).

Figured it was time to pull out the old laptop to do updates. Didn't realize it had been sitting since last July, as the post it note told me. The old gal fired right up and has been updating all evening. Yeah, the processor ain't exactly fast, but I like having a backup just in case.
