Prior to posting the thread,I had already checked most of the links your link offered johnnyrocker,and The Techguys website was one of the first sites I checked. So far no manual The reason for the manual is to check the laptop has a mic socket. There are two sockets on the rear,one is the speaker socket,the other is unknown. The sockets are not colour coded,and the unknown sockets has what I can best described as a lighting symbol next to it? Cheers
Just had a look through the manual of another E-system laptop. If you have a mic socket it may be next to the Headphone/Speaker socket. They are usually a pinkish colour on desktops not sure with a laptop.
