Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Which laptop I shall purchase

1. As we are seeing a boom in digital technology we are seeing a lot many more cheaper and cheaper brands of laptops.
What we think is generally imposed upon by friends or peers but do we really know what we wish to buy.
I'm a computer geek I know what I shall buy because I know my budget my requirement and my usage.
These three things only matters while purchasing an electronic equipment.

Whats your requirement
Whats your budget
Whats your usage.
If my need is only playing games and only watching movies why shall i buy core two duo or higher processors.
That would be a waste of money
even a PIV can do the same for me for one fourth of the money.
Why run behind the latest technology when it is costliest. If you use the old technology today which is sufficient for you then you will get what is sufficient for you later on.
Why to take others advise who are just shallow in the hands of technology
They are just giving you advise because they don't wan't to listen that they don't know about latest tech.
Your best friend would be the one who would ask you to purchase something which satisfies your requirement within your budget.

I am interested in replaceing the motherboard on my laptop


Before this is done please take an opinion to confirm the motherboard and most important the cost of a new board. When a lot of money is invested specially on an older set please see that newer technology comes cheaper and if there in an option to swap with a bargain for spares , go for it.

If you are good with computers, i would recommend Acer since it is cheaper.
If u dont know anything about computers, go for HP or DELL, which provides software support for the computer.

I have complicated trouble for my acer 4520, there are: 1. Suddenly, it can't be turn on the BIOS although the power led is on. I'm sure that there is any problem with battery. 2. For a few days ago, DVD-Rom was no detect in BIOS or OS. I think that the trouble is the mainboard. Please, help me about repairing the mainboard


Generally speaking, the mainj boards are not serviceable without a lot of test gear and usually it is cheaper to replace it.
I think your problem is related to the DVD ROM. If it is not recognised by the BIOS, that generally means that it is not running.
If you can get to the BIOS then the motherboards system is running.
Remove the DVD ROM from the machine and fit another one.
Check out ebay for a replacement, a lot of private sellers and business sellers will be there.
Hope that saves you some time and cash.

think pad doesn't recognize the dvd player


Is it the dvd player that originally came installed in the laptop? If so, then the drive is dead and will need to be replaced. The cost on a drive for a think pad is generally around $200, but I'm sure there are places to get one cheaper. If you are not willing to spend that kind of money, you can purchase an external usb optical drive for around $60 - $80. Possibly even less than that, depending on brand and location.
