Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Set up a Cheap POS System

1. You will need to acquire an old PC or, if you have the money, buy a terminal off or ebay or likewise.

4. Connect your equipment to the PC - Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Scanner, Receipt printer and cash drawer.
5. Use DHPOS configuration program to setup your devices. Codes for cash drawers and receipt printer's tearbar codes are found at http://www.dhpos.com/popopen.htm .

Headlight switch will not work. Is there a repair or should I replace switch. Best place to buy new switch?

There's 2 general types of switch. A stalk/indicator switch and a dashboard style switch.

You'll get both from your main dealer or can order from most car spares shops.

If it's the second type of switch pictured above, check how many terminals are on the rear of the old one before you order a new one.

It's probably better if you search Ebay for 'headlight switch' or 'Jeep headlight switch' ... whatever make of vehicle you have

hp laptop has broken hinge

If you are talking about the external case, you have a few options:

1) Call up HP and tell them your issue and they'll probably ask you for an exorbitant amount of money to do it for you (you'll be missing your laptop for a while too)

2) WHAT I RECOMMEND is buy a pair of replacement hinges from ebay (you can look up guides/info on this online) for 20$ (will vary depending) and spend 30 minutes to install it yourself. Depending on the break, you will probably have to open up the case, so use caution, but it should be rather accessible so no expertise is really needed. (you might acquire dust inside your PC if you do this, google effects/how to remedy online)

NEVER complete a purchase outside of ebay. (Hey , I give it to you for less if it's a private sale)

look in Ebay "comunity" site.. lots of advice there.

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard

The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
