    Not to mention, a stuck button can happen on any computer. A Mac is good for someone who wants to do basic functions (go to amazon.com, check e-mail, word process, stuff like that) in an easier to use operating system, or for artistic stuff (iphoto, imovie, itunes, etc.). You can't modify it, you can't use the internet fully (a lot of flash websites, etc., don't work well with mac, and above all, MSFS is WIndows only. If you enjoy your mac that's great, but for me (who has had a few macs) and many others, the Mac isn't the right computer.

    Windows XP is just fine.
    Startup doesn't really take that long, and if it's such a big deal you can put a PC into hibernate or just leave it on.
    My PC doens't freeze or crash very much either, I can't even remember the last time I had a freezeup.
    Really, if you use common sense, you will most likely aviod viruses. Computers get virues because people are retarded, not because they are a Mac or a PC.

    If you have poked around with a screwdriver and scissors you have already voided your warranty. Any marks made by aforementioned sharp instruments will be instantly obvious and the manufacturer will say "Non!"

    So I suggest you either take it to an independant PC repair outfit or adopt Mr. Dales idea about a ball pein hammer - and buy a new one!

    So truee. I remember I was once driving in a rain and the freaking wiper was broken becasue I was too lazy to buy a new one. So I had to use duck tape to fix it.
    The once in school we did a soccer ball made of paper and duck tape:

    Alright I'll try the trick with the tape. Hope it works. If not then I'll think of something tomorrow

    that's fine with me

    • Cut off a one or two inch piece of the tape.
    • Run it across the hole where the button is, but make you push the tape inside the hole so it sits firmly on the button.
    • Double check that the tape is on the button.
    • Pull.
    • Hopefully the duct tape will pull the button back out.

    Chances are that it was just jammed a little. You shoulda just tried popping it out. Sticking a screw driver in there might have just made it worse. Also even if you fix it by opening it, it might just happen again.
