21 Top 10 Notebook Acts of Stupidity My notebook computer fell out of my backpack and landed on the sidewalk – now it won’t boot I left my notebook computer in the car overnight and the temperature dropped below zero, now it won’t boot… I left my notebook computer too close to the lamp and it melted the case and screen… I sat on my notebook computer and now the screen is blank around the pointer… I left my laptop turned on & zipped it up in my carrying case while I drove home and now it won’t boot

22 Top 10 Notebook Acts of Stupidity I checked my notebook computer through baggage at the airport and a Samsonite case obliterated it in baggage claim… I accidentally locked my notebook computer case shut and lost the key, so I had a locksmith drill the lock out (through the case), and now it doesn’t boot… From a technician, “Where did this liquid dripping out of your notebook computer come from?” My daughter destroyed/my dog ate my Ethernet cable “I spilled water on the keyboard and used a hair dryer to dry it up – I didn’t even put it on the hottest setting!” (6 keys on the keyboard were melted)

23 Insurance & Surge Protectors Renters Insurance - A MUST! –Some companies will cover your laptop under their standard policy; others may require an additional rider. Check with your agent.
