    you have one...deadly method to reset bois: opet yor hdd cover, take out the hdd conectors (cables) and star the notebook. Now you must see something like: NO HDD FOUND, PRESS F1 TO BYPASS OR F2 TO ENTER SETUP. If you did not see that, you have problems with your motherboard or keyboard. Please let me a note what hepened, to help you after!

How can I permanently delete a book from my Kindle

You can permanently delete them on the Amazon website, not from the Kindle itself.
I don't understand why you'd want to, as there is a huge amount of room in the cloud for more books than you could ever read in a lifetime.

I need a Acer Aspire KAV10 D150 webcam lead, can anyone point me in the right direction ? UK only if possible. Thanks.

Hi Neil,
I understand your concern.
If i were you i would buy a small external webcam which is available for laptops.
There are two reasons for that. First of all, if you take it to the Acer repair center, they will charge you a huge amount (since it is not in warranty).
Second thing is that the lead which you are talking about is practically impossible to get other than from their manufacturer.

Hope that helps...
