Black smoke indicates a too rich fuel mixture. Be sure the air cleaner is clean. Install a new spark plug. Check what size the main jet is. The prior owner may have installed a larger than stock main jet. There will be a number stamped on the side of the jet. Call the dealer and ask what the stock jet number is for your bike and then tell them what you have. Go back to stock.

I'm Locked out of my phoneIt was taken to Apple Store yesterday they Said I would have to prove it was mine . I can me home and found the purchase order

Do it yourself. All they are going to do is Factory Reset it, which clears all the data off and gives you a clean fresh installation. Then you Restore Data from your last Back Up.

Connect the phone to a computer with iTunes on it, log in and choose Factory Reset. Follow the instructions. When clean, select Restore from Backup. Your data will come back, but no lock.

I purchased the microwave in dec 2010 and not even a month later the button to open the door continuely gets stuck

This can be due to a mechanical problem in the latch . So if you remove the top after disconnecting the power plug the switch can be accessed.
Use a good light to see if there is any mechanical linkage that got stuck or is out of alignment.
The unit can be taken out and reassembled.

I purchased an acer aspire one with qvc last year in dec the

Hello, Adonis.

Depending on its use, a battery lasting 2.5 hours after one year is not terrible. Over time, the battery loses power.

If the battery were totally dead in less that one year, I'd suggest contacting Acer, since it's still under warranty.

Hope this helps.
