Probably just some bad capacitors. Easily replaceable if you know how to do board-level soldering.

With all due respect, you seriously need to stop goofing around. Stop spending money on this crap and buy a car and then get your freakin' license. I LOL at how much complaining you post in RCC about having to either walk somewhere or wait for other people to give you rides. It's epicly funny.

Seriously. Get a car. They are cool. Nice ones can attract girls. Nicer ones can attract police. :P

Some people can't afford the insurance, or just don't need to go enough places for it to be worth it.

Get a scooter. Hell, if I could get my old scooters licensed (got em junked with no title ) I'd drive em all over in the summer.

On a side note, playing Forza really makes me wanna dust off my PS1 and play Gran Turismo 1 and 2 again.

I know, but I just don't have the self motivation to find a job and make random excuses on not finding one (like I will just end up quitting school or just do part time). I'm not even trying to get a girl till I graduate college and can support myself. Why try to support someone else when I can't even support myself?
I always wanted to buy a car, but my parents keep bitching to me when I ask them if I can buy a car. They want me to buy a new car so I don't have to worry about fixing them if something breaks down.
Plus, it's human nature to complain.

Yeah, I don't think it's worth it since I don't go out much. I only go out about once or twice a week. I think insurance will cost about $300-$400 a month for me (or at least that's for my brother). The only reason he has a car is because my parents gave him one and went out to buy a new one ('09 Hyundai Sonata), which they said they will give to me when they pay it off because my dad doesn't like driving manuals anymore, and only him and I can drive manual.

Try convincing my parents for me then. I tried for almost a year trying to convince them to let me have a Vespa, since they are only ~$2000. But she said it's to dangerous and stuff.
