Hi all,

This is a message that I received from someone about a driver that would
let you attach a Zip drive to a Poqet PC.  I've asked Stefan to provide a
Web site URL for his product; if he does, then I'll post it to the Poqet PC
Web Site.

I Scream for Fried Screen by bmoy@xxxxxxxx

Hi All!

I got a second hand Poqet Classic and everything was going well, but
this mourning (pun intended) I found my screen fried!!  There were burn
marks around the screen edges in three areas, the most intensive mark
is just aboue the lower right hand corner, originating from inside, behind
the screen glass,  the two others are more elongated and appears on
the top and lower borders of the screen on the left side.  No marks
appear on the black outside of the unit.  I used cheepo AA batteries, but I
don't think that could have caused it, could it???

Taking the batteries out and fitting them back in again I was able to get
the LCD to flicker a bit, but not everytime and that's it -I think it's dead!! 
Any ideas waht may have happened?  and did this ever happen to
anyone on the list?  Is there a fix?

Advance thank to anyone who can shed some light on this matter.  I'm in
the process of buying another Poqet and would like to know what NOT
to do...	-Bill
