    Gateway mt6460 laptop will not start

    I got as far as removing the ram, hard drive and cd rom. I could not find the motherboard batt. I am guessing it is under the keyboard. I was a little nervous taking anything else apart. This is my first time messing with a laptop. Right now it put back together with no change.

    I just got this in a email. Hard for me to watch. I love old cars. What a waste of a 59 chevy. What did this prove? A new car is safer? Realy now, how many people use there colector cars as daily drivers. If I die driving my 69 Cadillac convertable at least I'll die happy.

    Brake question, not Explorer specific.

    I just got the hoses for both rear sides for $23 total. I have had the car for 3 years and have not had the rear brake hoses replaced yet. So $23 is well worth it.
