    Default Breaking News: Rockstar DJ Smashes Laptop

    ...Okay, I lied about the rockstar part. But I did drop my laptop last night and smashed the screen. I'm wishing my Dell Laptop had that breakaway MAC power cord. That would have prevented the whole situation.

    SONOFABITCH.

    if i were you i would remove my hard disk asap and copy it with a sata to usb cable (asuming your laptop uses sata ofcourse ) to a external backup disk. chance is that the drop didn't do your HDD good

    Yeah especially if it was on at the time ! If it was off it will probably be alright.

    Wishing you a speedy fix dude !
