My laptop is dead

My laptop, an Acer Aspire 1315 LM passed away today at 10 AM. It was three.
The laptop was purchased early 2004 and was quite impressive despite the lack of bluetooth, wifi, and only 64M graphics card.
It underwent major life threatening surgery in 2005 as the motherboard died, the surgery was performed at Jarir Bookstore in Khobar, KSA and was long, but successful.
Several flavors of Linux were installed on the late device all in a bid to ease it's breathing as he was suffocated with Windows XP.

The Acer leaves behind a Dell PC, a Nintendo Wii and a Sony Ericsson P990i and a frustrated owner.

R.I.P. LM 1315
You will be missed

Are you sure it's dead. Can you elaborate on the problem. Maybe it can be fixed. If you can't be bothered to repair it I will be more than welling to buy it from you and repair it my self. If it is indeed the motherboard then it is not feasable to repair it but other than that anything can be fixed! If interested email me yousif at gmail [.] com

Hi Yousif
I am sure it's the motherboard. I had the same symptoms before when it was under warrenty and I took it to Jarir. They got me a new Motherboard. You are welcome to buy it if you want. It was pretty good with a DVD-RW writer too. Excellent for Surfing and Office Applications.
