There is but your best bet is to contact tiger direct or the manufacturer of the machine. there might be a simply restore utility. It sounds like you have an open box computer. This is where someone opened the box tried it out and returned it. Refurbished is there was an issue and it was repaired. In bothe cases all major manufactures add software to reset the computer just like it came from the factroy. This is what you should do.

Thanks PJ Please rate my servcies and anything then completely staisifed is not good enough for me. tell me how  Ican fully help you.

I have a toshiba satelite laptop a blue screen appears after i try to log in or log into a safe mode or try to repair its vista


You need to boot from a vista disk. or download the vista recovery disk from microsoft and see if it will repair it. something has corrupt the system files. use the repair from the vista cd not the start up repair from the vista boot screen. if it says it cant find a problem then use the system restore points to restore to a time when it worked. you can acces these from the vista cd after it tries to do start u prepair without having to log into vista.

Looking for a front bezel for an emachines t3256 computer


http://tigerdirect.partsearch.com/Part/Gateway/E-Machines/3145952WOFB/Refurbished.aspx?ModelMfgName=Gateway&ModelBrandName=E-Machines&ModelNumber=T3256

I'm fairly confident that this is the part that you're looking (can't be 100% sure as site doesn't have pic) for although it seems kind of pricey to me. Another cheaper option I would consider is finding one on ebay. Even if it's non functional you should still be able to use the front plate and either keep the remaining parts for spare or relist on ebay and try to recoup your losses.

HP laptop pavilion tx 1000. when i hit the start button the computer starts up but the screen stays black. i have to shut it down again using the power button and just keep turning it on and off till it...


I suggest you buy an external harddrive with 500 Gigs, Go to tigerdirect.com for good prices. As far as the screen being black. You could have damaged the video card, the video card is integrated on the motherboard so it would be costly to replace the motherboard. If the wireless card is integrated also on the motherboard, same problem. Just a tip for future refrences, Laptops are used for quick access to info and files on the move, estimated time of use about 40 minutes. If you need to use a computer longer than that I recommend you use a desktop. I have seen many laptops go to waste because of long term use at a time. First thing that goes is usually the memory or video card. I hope this helps you.

My laptop beeps on start-up (when logging in).


Hey there, Jiggyboo!
From what you're telling us, it may be something as simple as having a key on the keyboard stuck down. A key may have gone bad, or something may have gotten dropped down between and/or underneath a key. Check out all of the keys to see if this is the case. Hold up the keyboard and look across the tops of the keys. They should all be the same height. Also, you can try slowly pressing each key and make sure that they all feel the same. I would especially start with the keys that you use to enter your password as that seemed to be when the problem started.
Hope this helps and have a good day.
