    How can I remove details in permanent marker from laptop?

    I am thinking of selling my eee 900 but when I got it, I wrote my postocde on it in permanent marker. Anyone know how I can remove this without damaging the plastic? I thought it would be more saleable without this.

    Yeh, there is stuff you can buy (anti-graffiti) that removes permanent marker pen. I used it on the last laptop I nicked!!! :w00t:

    why did u put down ur postcode on ur laptop?

    Just use Meths (don't drink it though).

    You lot and you're stupid answers. It's so obvious, sell the buyer your house as well.

    in case it got lost the nice policeman can give it a lift back home - its also a deterant (didn't work on me tho)

    nail polish remover (if you have any.)

    Doh! We should have thought of that! Problem solved.

    Fill in the rest with the pen...........but remember don't go outside the lines:)

    that would work - also removes super glue

    cut it out with a chainsaw

    You're all wrong. Just write over the postcode with the same permanent marker so that there will be a nice coloured rectangle instead of a postcode. :-D

    lool, ill start writing my postcode on my money, see if any of it comes bk

    How do we know your not a thief trying to get a postcode of a stolen laptop?!?

    Hmmm, these threads normally start

    "My friend has just got a laptop with permanent marker with the post code of the last owner" , followed by "he also has just come in to the ownership of a wallet , mobile phone and a set of keys".

    I'm sure once the offending security markings are removed we will see this on the For Sale pages on HDUK!

    If your postcode is L4 PTO just stick a P on the end and tell the buyer you had Alzheimers and needed to be reminded what it was.

    LOL. L4PTOP - I like it

    Or just sell it to someone in the same road. Then you can charge more as its already security coded!

    have u not seen the group on facebook called "poo up ur notes" not what u think, u just write "poo" on the notes and see if u ever get a note thats been "pooed" on lol, its childish i know but also quite funny if u find one.

    I wonder how the banks get away with the pen marks they write on banknotes? It has always bothered me but have never had the guts to ask.

    Yeah i was going to say this, it should work

    If everything fails, try to scrape it off with a sharp knife. Mind your fingers when you do this. :thumbsup:

    u cud throw it in ur dishwasher or clothes dryer and hope for the best also.

    I sometimes draw penises or grafitti the faces on notes to make them look like pirates. I'm just a rebel.

    At work we remove permanent marker from whiteboards by going over the permanent pen in dry wipe markers, which are what the teachers use (non-permanent markers), after that the permanent pen wipes off like magic!

    sandpaper?

    Blimey, deeply embarresed I didn't think of that instead of posting. :-D Actually the way house prices are going will probably give house away to laptop buyer. Thanks for all the advice....

    I'll buy the laptop off you with the marker writing, but you'll have to move quickly before I change my mind:thumbsup:
