So I'm not the only one with this issue...
There are bugs like that in mine too. They like, live under the screen? It's unusual...
I've had my laptop for awhile though.
Every time one is crawling on the screen I squish it.
You can use compressed air, that's what I'm going to do.
How many is a lot? I get a couple every week that I notice.
They really are quite annoying...

Asker's Rating:Asker's Comment:The air worked perfect


I'll bet BBMF have Compressed Air ;)

Hope this helps....

My problem is that's only 6 weeks old and I'm a bit reluctant to take the screen apart. I dare say I won't notice it in few days time but never had one my old lap top [which I still love even tho' it died and I won't throw it out :)) ]

I don't think you need to disassemble it
to blow some compressed air through
one side of the screen and get rid of the
buggers :)) out the other.....

Only worry would be if there have been
some EGGS laid inside the case :((

I also read they are attracted to some
types of magnetic fields, and this or
the warmth of the electronics is why
you have your "Tennant" in there...

Other suggestion I saw was to take it
back to the point of purchase and
demand a replacement, saying the
bugger(s) came from THEIR factory :ymdevil:

It's possible you aren't the only one!

Bon Chance!

This wouldn't be an irritation if it wasn't at night. A Little Owl screeching outside my bedroom window for half the night.

Absolutely ruined my marathon hopes :p

Going all the way to Lakenheath only to find I'd left my camera on top of the microwave at home (I put it down to get something then forgot to pick it up again). ~x( ~x( =))

So I missed filming/photographing a dozen F-15s and 2 pave hawks at LH.
Sentinel, East Flight (jet stream 41) and 3 Tornados at Marham.
And 4 Typhoons and 2 F-15s at Coningsby.

On the positive side, I don't have to spend the rest of the night editing :D :)) \:D/

I absolutely agree!

I finished a book called NOS-4R2, by Joe Hill (Stephen Kings son) last week and it was excellent, but I couldn't even make myself start reading my new Stephen King book (Joyland) because of it :)) :))

When I get "Stuck" like that, there's a
small stack of books I love that I've
read over and over, and I just pull out
one of those and read it again!

I've read Joseph Conrad's Nostromo
countless times, for example, and it's
just like talking with an old friend or
watching The Third Man ( again!)
or having one of my favo(u)rite meals....

Joyland can Wait :))

I do that too :D
It's normally The Stand, The Lord of the Rings, The Outsiders or one of the Harry Potter books for me. And I don't care what anyone says about the Harry Potter books, I'm a big fan :D

Which reminds me, I'm not sure which Harry Potter movie irritates me more, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix or Half Blood Prince.
It's not the issue that they don't follow the books as well as other films, I can appreciate creative license, it's that who ever was in charge of the screen play did a terrible job of actually translating the books to movies, It honestly feels like they just didn't care (thinking about it, they probably didn't :)) as long as they get bums on seats :)) ).
There are scenes that have no business being there, they take up screen time that could be better used to explain the plot.
For example, there's a ten minute scene in Half Blood Prince where Ron's house is burnt down. To this day I have no idea why it's in there, it does not move the plot along, just leaves you asking, what the heck was that?

I'm not saying I could do a better job, but I really think that they could have been filmed differently.

Also as much as I respect Michael Gambon, I really felt he didn't get Dumbledore at all, he didn't play him as well as Richard Harris did IMO.

Have to agree with you there Helen,I also hate it when films deviate from the book for no reason,eg-"The way Back"-adapted from the book " The Long Walk " they included totally unnecessary scenes involving Colin Farrell that had no relevance and no point at all while leaving out many key sections of the book,why ?

Agreed! I really wish I knew why they did it!
The Potter movies do that exact same thing, Rowling has created an entire magical universe, it's all there in black and white yet they decide to ignore most of the things she's written.

There are things included in book 6 which are KEY to what happenes in book 7 (Hufflepuffs cup and Harry putting the potions book in the room of requirement and marking the place with a bust of a wizard with an old tiara/diadem on top, possibly the most important bit of info in the whole series!). These are just ignored in film 6 and as I predicted, film 7b shows some mad scrambling to fill in the plot hole left by these errors in earlier films. Yet a 30 second segment in film 6 could have fixed them and set up films 7a and 7b nicely.
If they had ditched the house on fire scene I mentioned there wouldn't have been any timing issues.

Book 6 was all about Harry learning about Horcruxs yet film 6 didn't even show the main scenes where he learns about them, it really misses the whole point of that particular book in the series.

I'm starting to think I could have done a better job =))

PC tablets - great for browsing total rubbish for partaking in any thing. I hate mine. :((

It's a good back up at the minute as I can't log into my PC, there appears to be a duplicated entry in the registry that's causing problems but why anyone would solely want a tablet I can't fathom!!!!
