Who knew? If you have a service disc it might be worth checking to see if yours is about to expire.

I think that's just for updates, not the whole thing.
Mine expired while I still owned the D3, and there weren't any updates to it that I ever saw....

I hate small pictures too. Especially on an old laptop. Didn't use it since I've got ELSA. I should sell it.

Yes, it's only the TSBs and updates which expire, but mine appeared to download quite a lot of information!
