How to Choosing a used laptop

So far I have mentioned many times that buying a laptop is a lot to purchase . It is true that the cheapest computer you can buy a longer per-thousand five hundred zlotys ( do not count here netbook purchase , which will get a smaller amount ), but it is a simple laptop(laptop Battery) and for many applications may not be sufficient . Therefore, having a limited budget , we can attempt to purchase second-hand computer . This solution will allow us to purchase a laptop with a better setup for a much lower price than in the case of a new , comparable configuration.
But before you buy your computer , you need to know some important principles, which should strictly observe spending your hard-earned money.
Do not buy hardware of unknown origin or suspiciously low price
Remember that there is no real opportunity or are they really very little. Therefore, if you find an offer from a computer whose price drastically different from the price of similar laptops(Dell Inspiron E1405 Battery), watch out , because the equipment can come from theft.
Before you buy , try to inquire about the origin of the laptop vendor . If possible , let the seller show you the invoice of purchase of the computer. Ask also about the serial number of your laptop and check the manufacturer's website if the device is not accidentally hit it on the black list . For example, all Dell records stolen laptops(XPS m1210 battery) and we can see whether the device is reported as stolen .
If you buy on the auction or other auction sites , read the comments they received the vendor. If the user profile has no comments and the equipment is suspiciously cheap, be careful with this purchase. The following figure presented the views of the auction , in which the seller offers a laptop(HP 510 battery) at a price representing only 50 % of its store of value. In addition, the information shows that such cheap computers dealer has five .
Make sure you get a laptop(Dell Vostro 1710 battery) with the original power adapter and a set of documents , programs and drivers. If these elements are missing , and the seller explains their loss, it may be a signal that the laptop comes with the crime. In this case, consider giving up the purchase and look for another bid .
Remember that buying stolen equipment, you may be accused of receiving stolen goods, and for that the penalty of imprisonment or heavy fine .
Check the specification of purchased computer and compare it with data on producer
Ask the seller to provide the serial number of your choice laptop(VGP-BPS9/B). Then check on the configuration of your laptop manufacturer . It just so happens that almost every manufacturer will identify the parameters of the computer after its number .
If the configuration of your laptop , you want to buy , is different from what is given by the manufacturer on your website, try to find out what changes have occurred in the configuration. Ask whether any changes occurred in the configuration of your computer and what were their causes .
Upgrading RAM or exchange the largest capacity hard drive is not a problem and often result from a desire to improve the performance of your computer. However, the change of other components , or their absence may indicate that the seller has decided to be removed and sold separately or you're in front of a computer 60wh apple A1184 Charger, which consists of parts of various origin. It may also happen that the seller was trying to hide the fact that the computer is stolen , by changing the portion of the case containing the serial number.
Check out the views on the failure of a computer model and the problems that you might encounter in the future
If you choose to have a specific laptop model , check to see what opinions he has received from people who u偶ytkowa艂y it for a long time . You can type the name of the device and its model for a Google search.
Pay attention to the sustainability of the housing, the cooling system and the unreliability of other components of your laptop(HP Compaq nx9420 battery). Find out also whether the users have had with a computer model of some other problems. will also be useful knowledge about the operation of the service and any warranty repair costs .
Check the condition of the computer case
Before buying a computer case look carefully and see if it can not see the cracks, traces of glue and other permanent damage.
If the computer's casing is cracked , it means that the laptop(Fujitsu FPCBP136 battery) could fall , or simply been badly used by a previous owner . It also happens that some models of laptops bursting , even during normal use , which is proof of poor quality equipment.
Remember that the visible signs of damage may be a signal that the computer will not work properly. For example, the collapse could damage the hard drive and you can have trouble with its correct operation. Please note that the unit was not flooded. Most flooded element is the keyboard , so read the tips set out below.

where would you buy a laptop that is cheap but has a good memory

As far as buying computers there is no exact spot to purchase one for cheap but, if you know what to look for finding one for a fair price will be very easy. Now with memory it is important to know that there are different types of memory. One is your ram which is your virtual memory. This allows you to have more programs running at once. A good size of ram to have is anything from 8gb and up. The other memory is the type that holds the data you download or put in your computer the best and cheapest way to do this is to buy a normal laptop and but an external hard drive. They are around $100 and up and will end up being chaper and easier then worrying about your hard drive memory.

i want to buy machine like printers laptop computer, to be browsing freely in my home, charting with my friend and groups like u, now since i cant afford it as a student, what do i do?

If you need certain computer equipment (such as a printer, laptop, desktop computer) but don't care too much about extra features, I suggest looking at the lowest price available for whatever hardware you need. The cheapest costing stuff usually is functional at what it does, and doesn't usually have more features than what it's supposed to do. ( For example, the cheapest printer may not have fax built in, but it will print.)

The next thing you could do, is check craigslist.com and look in the free section of your area. Some times, people give away old hardware they no longer need.

Need to replace sound card for Sony vgn-t350p

It's true that with a laptop, replacing some parts means replacing the motherboard as they are integrated parts, this applies with the sound card. If your laptop is under warranty then you should be able to get it fixed, otherwise you need to weight the cost of replacing the motherboard verses buying a new computer. Seeing as how the motherboard in a laptop is pretty much half the computer, it may be cheaper to buy a new one.
