    I'm using the neighbors wireless right now. but i was told that i could hook my cellphone up to my computer with a USB cord and use it as a modem. my top can use bluetooth devices but it isn't bluetooth rdy. i'm not entirely sure what you're asking me but i cant afford the live chat since i dont have a credit/debit card. if there is anyway i can give u points with out it i will do that.

    My problem isn't so much about it being costing to you. It would allow me to get some points built up on my end for future references. First off, do you have the dial string required by your provider for your modem service AND do you have the actual phone number your pc is to dial. Without those we get no where. Also, cen you split your pc between a chat and programming. If not I can show you that too. I am using mine as a modem right now to talk to you. I can use cable AND bluetooth. But thouest must live chat for it to help me as I help you.

    Do you have the initialization string to go to your modem in your pc or the phone numberf the pc is to dial. If you don't, call your service provider and get it from them. Once you have them we can talk. You also have to have active internet access from them to your cell phone. Once you get this, call me. I know because I am on the net via my pc via my cell phone right now.

Hello, I have a sk lx and the back screen light

From my experience, the flex cables in the hinge go out. You can purchase a new LCD assembly on ebay or through other online part stores. Then its just a matter of removing the 2 T6 torx screws from the hinge and installing the new one.
