The Laptop Thread
« on: March 06, 2008, 05:53:29 pm »
Has anyone ever brought his/her laptop recently on a plane? Philippine Airlines, specifically. Flight to the United States. How was the experience? Was it a hassle? Are they strict? When they inspect your things, do you have to turn on the laptop and have them check it?

Is the laptop bag considered as the  hand carry bag entitled to one passenger?

Laptops,PDAs,cellphones are allowed on planes, it is allowed since alot of people are working while traveling plus the nature of the laptop is not recommended to be checked in (kase hinahagis hagis lang ang baggage di ba)  You just have to turn it off upon take off.
Don't settle for anyone just to have that someone

I had to take my laptop out of its bag and put it in a tray. Hassle yung part na yun, hehe.

Sa Frankfurt International Airport, nakalimutan kong alisin yung CD ng files ko from the CD drive ng laptop ko. Hindi tuloy ako pinadaan sa security. They inspected my laptop pa, and I had to wait for about about half an hour, ugh. Buti na lang hindi pirated CD na movie or music yung nandun!

It depends on the country you are leaving from. When I went to the UK, I have my own handcarry and laptop bag, magkahiwalay sila. Puwede kasi yun sa Pilipinas. Pero pag-uwi ko from UK, I had to put my laptop and its bag inside my handcarry kasi yun ang law nila (a laptop bag is automatically considered as one handcarry).

^ Usually hindi naman, unless mapagtripan ka nilang i-random check siguro. Yung sakin naman hindi nila tiningnan yung applications ko. They just turned on my laptop to inspect the CD inside. So basicaly hindi naman nila pina-abot kahit sa Windows man lang.  I think they're looking more on hardware, kung may nakatagong hindi maganda dun (as in pwedeng gamiting panggawa ng bomba etc).

Im planning to get a Compaq C767TU.. Free DOS lang ang kasama nito.

If I'm going to install Windows Vista (may licensed copy ako) is it as simple as loading the CD into the laptop? or are there some other software/drivers I need to get?

In short, how do you install an OS on a no OS laptop?  :-\

^tickeled-pink

usually when you say free dos lang ang installed dun sa system it comes with a cd containing drivers (xp and vista) of your laptop. so if you have a licensed vista, you shouldnt worry bout it.

installing is as simple as loading your cd during boot up, follow the installation procedure, then after the installation load your driver cd and install the drivers manually.

go to device manager, remove/uninstall your dvd drive then restart your machine. or baka kailangan linisan mo yung lens ng drive mo.

^miss understood

why would you need an HDMI port in the first place? do you really require one? will you be using the port regularly? besides you can always buy a PCMCIA or a USB HDMI port anytime

^^ Ganon ba? thanks for this information.

Ang isa pa palng problem with Acer 2920z ay kulang yung mga drivers niya, as discussed here: http://www.tipidpc.com/viewtopic.php?tid=131961

Im not a techie person, paano ko kaya maiinstall yung mga programs/softwares ng walang kahirap-hirap?

I found this: http://www.fullreleases.com/NewMembers/download-serial-crack-Driver-Acer-2920z.php?search=Driver+Acer+2920z

Pero, unsaon man nako ni? (What will I do with this?).  :)

Thanks in advance sa magtuturo. Sana may magbigay ng idiot's guide.  ;D

go to acers website and download the missing drivers there.

tip: check the other regions for a few drivers and updates

Sa mga gusto ng size ng EEE PC but nadidiscouraged sa RAM nito, may bago na, but not from Asus:


Coming from a Philippine company (Yay!), the Deep Blue H1, which from its looks and specs seems like a hybrid of the Cloudbook and Eee PC. The Deep Blue H1 retails for around $405 and boasts of the following features:

    *
    * VIA Esther 1.0Ghz - di ko alam kung pwedeng palitan kasi pangit ang Esther
    * 1 GB DDR
    * 7.0-inch TFT display
    * 40GB mobile HD
    * built-in speakers
    * USB 2.0
    * Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
    * 1.20 kg
    * card reader
    * webcam
    * touchpad
    * and the most exciting feature of all –> 4.5 hours of battery life!
