"...with 100% safety"? ... After much thought, I've determined that it CAN indeed be done. However, it will require a 1/2 inch socket wrench, a cup of brown sugar, a tennis racket, and a condom. Forgive me, I jest of course.

== If you mean FINANCIAL/DATA SAFETY, the answer is YES.
Make it a point to shop at sites you are familiar with and/or are repuatable and without any extensive negative "rap" sheet, so-to-speak. How do you know? The familiar part is clear. For those you are not familiar with can easily be addressed in the next point.

== If you mean BUDGET SAFETY, as in not paying waaaaaaay over the lowest prevailing price, the answer is YES AGAIN.
Employ the truly awesome power of web comparison shopping. Talk about letting your fingers do the walking. It's that and much, much more. There are several good comparison shopper's websites that take almost all of the guess-work out of the endeaver. You just tell it what your looking for, and it will in a few seconds present you with a very detailed list of vendors offering your desire. And those details routinely address reliabilty, reputability, and previous buyer's ratings as well. Again there are many to choose from, but I can whole-heartedly recommend a few I use very often:



1. NEW VS USED/RECONDITIONED. You simply use the same judgement in the virtual shopping world you use in the real shopping world. And there's the univeral standard to live by: if you wouldn't do it in the real-world, don't do it in the virtual-world.

2. SALES TAX (OR NOT). It's more common than not that you'll say goodbye to paying sales tax.

3. SHIPPING AND HANDLING. This varies considerably.

4. APPLES-TO-APPLES. For items 2 and 3, it's simply a matter of summing up to determine the TOTAL price. Price + Tax + Shipping and Handling = TOTAL price. Don't make the mistake of comparing apples-to-oranges. Compare first based on the total price. Then factor in the other considerations (i.e., shipping time, warranty, reliability, etc.). As soon as you find a specific item that catches your fancy, and the website showing it to you is extemely detailed, providing you with everything you'd ever want to know, including "8 by 10 inch glossy colored foe'-toes" (if you've ever seen the movie "Alice's Restaurant" you're at least smiling right about now), then note it's precise nomenclature (i.e., description and especially product code). EXAMPLE: Maxtor STM901603OTA3E1-RK OneTouch 4 Mini 160GB External Hard Drive 2.5" USB 2.0. With that magical code (STM901603OTA3E1-RK) you can then plug it into one or more of the comparison shoppers (or even "Google" it) and be assured of precise "apples-to-apples" comparison.

5. DATA/FRAUD SECURITY. There are many tools that can be considered here (Versign, digital signature, etc.). However, simply make sure that the web page you're at when it comes time to actually type in any personal/financial data (name, address, credit card number, etc.) contains the universal icon ... that being a gold colored padlock (usually at the bottom status bar of your web browser). This indicates the website is using industry standard security protocols to ensure your data is properly encrypted and can't get into the eyes of anyone intercepting.

== FOR COMPUTER/ELECTRONICS RELATED PRODUCTS, I highly recommend It's very informative and detailed in it's product descriptions (typicallly with several different aspect photos). I've made countless purchases over many years now with darn near 100% satisfaction. And I challenge you to see if you can find a better offer elsewhere for nearly everything they carry. I've only rarely been able to do so.

== AGAIN, FOR EMPHSIS: You simply use the same judgement in the virtual-world you use in the real-world. The univeral, computer-using, gold standard to live by: if you wouldn't do it in the real-world, don't do it in the virtual-world.

== IN CONCLUSION, with just a little bit of common-sense, and these few tips, you need not unduly worry about buying online. Ask any of your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors, and I'll be willing to bet they'll tell you the very same thing. Now get out there and do some comparison shopping.

My keyboard keys does not work. Keys W,S,X and 2 are not functioning.

sounds like your keyboard is faulty, al those keys are on the same down line - only thing to try is open it and see if there's anything obviously wrong with the wiring and try to repair it if possible otherwise you'll probably need to buy a new keyboard.

My computer is not acknowledging the numeric keyboard because I had to have another hardrive installed. What can I do? My keyboard came with my computer and is much better than the computer acknowledged...

If the keyboard has a round plug (PS/2) then it must be plugged in BEFORE you turn the computer on and make sure none of the small pins are bent or broken. PS/2 plugs are keyboard and mouse specific so make sure it is the keyboard port. Typically it is color-coded purple.
Make sure the Numbers Lock is engaged. There should be Num Lock button and many keyboards have a Num Lock light that turns on.
Try the keyboard on a different computer, it might been damaged when the hard drive was replaced.
Buy a replacement keyboard, the are really inexpensive online. I recommend

If this helps please vote for my solution. Good luck!

If he refuses then just tell him / her that your new keyboard makes your wrists ache after 20 minutes use and it's slowing your work output down. Health & Safety is a good angle to get a new keyboard, perhaps suggest a more comfortable device that you know is more suitable.

Wacom Mouse XC-100-03 Right click doesn't work

You can buy any other style or brand of mouse and it will work right along side of the Wacom. I chose to keep my Logitech wireless mouse after installing my Wacom tablet because it provided a better feature set (i.e. more buttons ). I have had no issues. Please rate me well if this helped.
Take Care,
