I am sure many of you did this to the old TV years ago when the picture was poor or it did not come on. I have seen young (and older) people kick a vending machine when the product did not come out. So, in my last post in "help room" I said that I had spent most of the day trying to get it to boot up again after trying a number of your suggestions for my problem with IE7. Well, my computer failed to boot again today and in frustration what did I do, yes, I gave it a thump and up it booted and so far is running fine. So my morrell to this story is.. "show it who is boss"
I was just thinking about this recently...we had a brand new colour TV delivered(several years ago now)which was faulty,the repair man duly arrives and on being shown the fault thumped it so hard on the side it slid 3ft! It didnt fix the fault so he had to get the back off and start testing this and that,after an hour or more it was pronounced dead and a replacement ordered.
moral, well you don't spell it like I do, but I understand what you are saying, but it did work for me this time. I will try to use a more scientific aproach next time and if that don't work.. I'll give it another thump.
I knew a ship's engineer who stated that when something wasn't working he firstly give it a good staring at, then a good torching with his torch, then he hit it with a hammer and if it still didn't work he changed the part.
