comment Why do I have to press the key 4 times to get a '`' symbol?
Just plugged in a cheap Dell keyboard (everyone's got one, right?) and had the same issue - 4 key presses required before anything appears

comment Best way to speed up my old Macbook Pro?
No I never did. I just didn't think it was worth the investment in the end. SSDs are cheap enough these days, but I don't use the machine at all anymore so even €100 would be money wasted.

comment Reinstalling Windows 8 on a tablet
I ran bootsect.exe /nt60 on it just to be on the safe side. And it worked! I figured out how to get into the BIOS. I needed to hold down BOTH volume buttons when powering on the device. Once in the BIOS there was an option to Boot from USB. I'm pretty sure this wasn't here before (I did manage to get into BIOS a few weeks back but wasn't sure how it happened). Anyway I chose that and now I'm in windows 8 setup. Thanks! If you want to post this as an answer I'll accept it

I've never heard anyone recommend a FAT32 format for a bootable USB, but ok. I'll give it a try

comment Visual Studio 2012 Intellisense choosing the wrong item
hah, I just played that back for the first time and realised there was sound, whoops! good thing I wasn't humming to myself or whatever. Enter and Tab both triggered the behaviour. However, in the latest version of Visual Studio (2013) it no longer seems to happen

comment How do I test the motherboard on a laptop with a broken screen?
I've already ordered a new motherboard, and it arrived yesterday. I'll take a look and see if I can see that issue on the old mobo. Is this similar to the issue the xbox 360 used to have, that could famously be fixed popping the motherboard in the oven for a few minutes?

comment How do I test the motherboard on a laptop with a broken screen?
I've already popped it open and reseated everything. It powers on, the hd light seems to show activity and all status lights above the keyboard (wifi etc) flash exactly once. The battery charges. As in, the battery charge light came on and the battery charged fully over the course of an hour or so. the battery charge light then went out.
