    Default computer troubles...

    I got my self a pcmcia usb2 card from maplins just before x-mas to connect up a external dvd-rw to my laptop.

    i've connected it up today, and it was working fine, but its just decided to melt! i could small burning and to be honest didnt know what it was, then i seen the pcmcia card smoking away, obviously i quickly whipped it out but now none of the external ports on my laptop work, all dead, & obviously the pcmcia card is ******ed too.

    what can i do? i cant find the receipt for the pcmcia card, and then even if did, whos responsible for the damage to my laptop?

    just looking for some opinions / advice on this one...

    i hate computers!

    I think they will only cover the PCMCIA card mate. Where were you using the laptop? How old is the laptop?

    They can be repaired. If you have no luck PM me and I can do board level repairs on laptops. Currently got 50 Cisco switches in the workshop!
