Can i change experts

Hiya iFix-P

I have just submitted a problem to a different expert then I noticed that he is an Apprentice. Am I allowed to send my problem to you since you are a Wiz or is that against the rules?

Here is the problem:

(misty_eyes submitted a problem with her Toshiba Tecra M1)

I have the same problem different model of Toshiba laptop

It was running slow and eventually freezing up. when I tried to shut it down it went to a blue screen which said that a crucial thread had either been exited or deleted , that this was due to recently installed software or hardware. I had not done neither. Now I am only getting the black screen with this message :

We apologize for any inconvenience,but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. If your computer stopped responding,restart unexpectedly or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders,choose last known good configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked. If previous start up was interrupted due to power failure or because the power or reset button was pushed or if you aren't sure what caused the problem choose start windows normally.

safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt

last known good configurations

start windows normally

Up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Then there is a countdown that says windows will start automatically after 30 seconds.

Before it starts back up the blue screen flashes briefly

Please select the Safe Mode option. If you no longer have that option whenever you turn your computer on. you can press on F8 after power-on. If you are able to boot in Safe Mode, please try to do a system restore (Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore). Choose a restore point with a date known to be a time when you never experienced this problem. If you are not able to boot using any of the advanced boot options, you will need to do a full system recovery (reinstall the OS). Hope this helps. Thank you.

If you have to ask for a manual, you should avoid doing a "reflow". Very technically challenging, could destroy your laptop, and should be left to the experts.

Self Help Website BASICS


The Basics Part 1

Ok we all know that crowd source can be a fantastic tool and if used correctly can also be a great benefit for anyone involved.

Crowd Sourced? What is that?

Essentially it is sharing. Get a crowd of thirty people together and the odds are one of them will have at least some experience, knowledge or expertise with just about any problem any other person in the group has. Now think world wide. That experience might be limited; then again it could be extensive.

There are some extremely talented, highly trained technical people contributing to Crowd Sourcing sites, there are also 'Normal people'. As each of us encounter life's little speed bumps, we theoretically learn something from how we deal with it, fix it, get around it, found a short cut, ignored it, cut the blue wire, you name it.

Problems that have been solved one person are currently being faced by another.

Crowd Sourcing is a global clearing house for the sharing of these 'Life Experiences' with those who could benefit.

That, Virginia, is Crowd-Sourcing !!

How does it work?

You have a broken product, but you aren't one to just toss it and buy a new one if it can be fixed. You may just have lost the instructions or be unsure of a feature.

Who ya gonna call… Ghostbusters…. Wait no that’s not right, unless the toaster really is dead...

First off you do your own thing and turn the house upside down looking for those pesky destructions or examine your product to see if you think you can fix it. OK so that was a FAIL but you are determined to see what can be done. Then you have an idea....


Lets go to the manufacturers web site and dang it didn’t you know they don’t have any help for my problem or they went bust or they even want waaay too much money !!

OK there has to be others out there with this problem, a forum or chat room or…

Sure it has many great pockets of information and you just need to find the right one. You start with a search. Toaster Broken. WHOAA 1,000,000,000,000,000 bits of information and you don’t even know which one to try first.

So you realize you need to narrow it down so you add your MODEL… Ah that’s a little better, that took a few zeros off the list, but it is still crowded with information overload.

Now let’s add just a little about the problem “FIX MY thingamajigs xxl version 1.0”

Cool that’s way better and hey look a few places that specialize in fixing em.

Hmmm they want more than I paid, so they are all out.

But what about these places “Let our experts / advisors help you !”

That sounds to be worth a shot. Right this site wants money but it doesn’t look all that expensive so let’s give it a whirl I already tried a few FREE ones and am still not sure

The place you are probably about to visit is known as a “crowd sourced” web site. The theory behind crowd sourcing is that every person has something of value to someone. Those individuals can share life experiences alongside those with a lifetime of qualified experience. Sharing what was learned when facing a similar problem.

The Basics Part 2

But what issues can your crowd source experts deal with, and what problems can arise from this.

There are lots of self help web sites on the internet and for a moment I want to concentrate on three of them.

"http://www.”web site"
"http://www.”web site"
"http://www ”web site"

These are all PRIME examples of crowd sourced websites These are the same type of site for our purpose and offer expert for hire to solve anything from a leaking tap to the brakes on your car. Let’s now look at the obvious basic differences between these sites

Let’s now look at the obvious basic differences between these sites
Ok so now let’s move on to the individual points and break them down a little more to give them meaning

Are experts vetted?

On WEBSITE 1 you have to APPLY to be an expert and must pass an ‘entrance test’. That does not guarantee you are accepted it just weeds out the wannabes. There is also a limit on how many experts are allowed in each area of expertise to ensure that experts don’t wander into areas they have no knowledge off. You then have to submit copies of your qualifications if you are accepted. And you have still not been given the means of earning money.

WEBSITE2 has a system where you answer any questions you see and if you answer enough you step up a graduated ladder to the top rank of GURU. However anyone can attain that rank with no prior knowledge of an area and you can even tick off as many areas as you want. Once a few answers are accepted you can then apply to earn money. Whilst there is a little quality control in place it is minimal. Once you are granted permission to become a “premium expert” you are allowed to answer anything you wish regardless of your knowledge

At WEBSITE3 there are minimal restrictions in place apart from the obvious abuse policy that all the sites have. There is NO money involved and some of the experts just have fun at the asker’s expense but there are still a good number of experts who know the topics

Display problems - missing borders and colours

good day,

does this problem only occur when you are browsing the internet? if so, this might be an issue on your internet browser. what internet browser and version are you using (internet explorer, firefox, etc)? you should also consider that some websites behave differently on different browsers.

try installing the latest available internet browsers available, i recommend that you use firefox 3.0.

i hope this will help
