    Hi

    Recently I stayed in a motel in the Southern Highlands with my partner. I
    had cause to use the VoIP 'phone via a telstra card on my laptop and on
    connection (or maybe just before) I got a loud "squel" through my
    headphones & whipped them off. At the same time the television in the room
    went off. Nothing I could do would start it again. It wouldn't turn on. I
    shut the computer down & the TV then became operable.

    Any suggestions (other than questioning my sanity)?

    What brand/model?
    If only every house had one of these laptops - the average I.Q would
    rise considerably.

    Speaking for yourself, of course, that would be obvious.

    TomTom whined:

    Obvious indeed... because I don't actually watch any television.
    Yes, very obvious. Of course.

    Ok! My qualifications & experience is in Mech Eng.. But what I described
    did occur. Whether coinicidentally some other form of intererence was
    extant at the time, I don't know. But I'm going to try & repeat it.
