Hi,<br><br>two days ago our tour in Portugal began (<a href="http://www.endphase.net">www.endphase.net</a>), and on the day of the first concert my computer (thinkpad r41) just died on me. When I turn on the power, the led lights up and the computer starts to vibrate, but the screens remains black and doesn't go any further - no bios show, no boot, no nothing. I had 2 questions:
<br><br>- I installed my rme hdsp pcmcia card on a friends OsX (don't know now which one, but I think the latest one), and also pd-ext (latest stable version). Audio worked, but there were constant dropouts that wouldn't disappear (and there seemed to be more dropouts there when there was more audio, and specially more with held sounds).
<br>Do you know what might be causing the dropouts, and what could be done for it?<br><br>- the dead computer turned on already a couple of times, but isn't stable. I suspect it's the motherboard, which could mean it can be trashed. Some other causes could be the hard disk (I'm not sure about this, since the bios splash screen doesn't show up) and the power source. Any hints about this subject as well?
