Oxymoron?
Darn right.

Anyways, I went looking through some old laptops, to see if they had any visual problems, and I could connect them to the monitor, to savor some precious old files (porn).

Anyways, I got my first laptop eva out, and when I pressed the power button, it wouldn't cut on. As to thinking that was odd, I borrowed (stole) a charger from some person I don't even know who lives next to us, and I found out it still works. Now, why would I get rid of a perfectly good laptop? Upon five minutes of exploring I found out. It gets the blue screen about every 5 minutes, (50 in safe mode). Back then, my mental ability was fairy limited (mental retardation), and so, I wasn't as knowledgeable; with computers/laptops then as I was now (not saying I know a lot about them, but I figure out my own solutions to every problem I encounter now.)

Anyways, after backing up files I wanted to keep, sending 'em to my email, and doing a Dell Image Restore, everything's great. The screen size is even bigger than the monitor i hooked up my tiny laptop to, but that means I have to get readjusted to a bigger keyboard, so typo's will be more common. And, the space is about 100GB, which ends up working great for me. It's a Vista laptop, which as again, works perfect for me, because I wasn't all that into Windows 7 on my newer laptop. The best thing about this now, when it says battery full, it does now Fu-...dge! around with you. This thing lasts for an eternity on battery, whereas my old laptops would die after an hour or two. My networking download speed is lower, but my browsing speed works out great.

So, as for what I'll do with my old laptop, either give it to a poorer house that can afford electricity and not a computer, and having this little device would make their hearts widen up and see what a kind thoughtful guy I am, or I can just smash it into a million pieces and spit in this poorer family
s face. I like option two more. ^^

Anyways, as for some pics if you want to see...;
The model's a Dell Inspiron 1525 (which means I have to deal with SCM; Shitty Charger Malfunction)

Aside from Firefox being installed, this is what the screen looked like, after the Image Restore;

And to save you all the very precious energy it takes you to type this out, YES, GOOD FOR ME.

Welcome to the club, Joey. Also, you said it.

BTW, you can't ditch a laptop outta your life just because it's not working as you thought. You can always fix it. Good thing that you learned this.

Something were a little beyond what I could fix, and my family isn't exactly rolling in cash for fixing laptops, but yeah, thanks man.
