I tried the laptop on the docking station this morning, but it still has the screen flicker.
However, it’s good news from the repair point of view. After I left on Friday at about 4:30pm, I had a voicemail from a repair company at about 4:55pm. I called them back this morning and a nice chap is going to visit me at 3:30pm today.
Let’s see what happens then ! Now I just have to get a VPN token setup, and find out what I’m meant to do with this visitor chap when he arrives.
