      I fixed mine; it took all of 10 mins, most of which was getting it all
      apart.

      "Piece of sh*t" my ass. I still use mine *every* day, and untill the battery
      won't charge any more, I have no need to ever stop using my Vivante' SE.

      I couldn t agree more. My Vivante SE266 hasn t missed a beat since I bought it. Of course, the battery is only good for about 30 minutes, but that is normal.

        I couldn't agree more.  My Vivante SE266 hasn't missed a beat since I bought it.  Of course, the battery is only good for about 30 minutes, but that is normal.  My company supplies Toshiba Sat Pro's with the 700 MHz CPU and I feel they are not any faster than my T'mond.  I actually prefer the "feel" of the Transmonde.

                        Hi:  Since receiving your message, the screen (12") on my very similar if not identical Vibrant LS Celeron 366 went bad.  The screen became increasingly dim, to the point it was not practically usable any more.  In attempting to diagnose whether it was the high voltage fluorescent tube or its power supply, inside the top cover along with the screen, I damaged that power supply, making the problem worse.
                            What do you want for your screen?
                            Thanks
                            Vilis

                        I have a 1998 Transmonde Vibrant LS 366 Celeron notebook to sell for <BR>

                        run by battery, although the battery can't be recharged because of <BR>
                        the post. Please email at "mhca@..." if interested.<BR>
