Death of a laptop. (Almost)

My trusty laptop computer. Served me well through many years from humble beginings as an ebay purchase.

In that time, it has survived spyware attacks, viruses (all cleaned up), had all manner of gadgets plugged into it, survived the upgrade from dial-up to broadband, moved from Coventry to Daventry and has been dropped on the floor once when I dozed off while it was on my lap.

Its not quite dead yet. The CD drive is making a strange noise all the time but it will still boot it up and I can use it, but I don't really want to in case the damage gets worse. The network interface still works, so I should be able to get all my files off.

This could be the impetus to actually go out and buy a new computer. In the meantime, have a read of this.
