comment How does touchpad in laptop detect a tap?
I believe it's down to the small electric current your body produces, but I'm not 100% sure.

comment Relaying to tech “support” that computer is actually broken
Could you donwload CoreTemp32 and see how warm the computer is getting? (although if it is overheating it is likely to shut down rather than freeze)

Seconded. If it is under warranty, grab your work from it, then get it replaced.

comment Change Laptop Wireless Card?
@Craig, it probably got downvoted due to the "I don't like Broadcom" reason. If you edit the question to add the detail in your reply comment to me it will seem to be a better reason.

comment Change Laptop Wireless Card?
@Craig, I expect they would have ways of knowing, scratches on the screw, stickers on the case. Don't try to pool the wool over their eyes, it won't bode well.

comment Change Laptop Wireless Card?
I know some people may not be a fan of Broadcomm but isn't this unnecessarily petty? I'm presuming that you've got some flavour of Windows 7 on it, which may not even support or provide drivers for the Atheros Mini card...

bear in mind, even if this is possible, running an OS like Windows over USB would be painfully slow.

comment How to get PCs IP for WakeOnLan over internet (only by using stock Windows 7 applications)
Wake-On-Lan typically uses the Mac address of the network card, not the IP (00:00:00:00 hex format instead of 000.000.000.000 numerical)
