Your lcd needs to be replaced. Check your warranty status, otherwise be prepared to spend $150-200 for repair.

I do have a problem on my Eee pc 900 HA screen.. The half screen displays a weird different colors while the other half is okey.. what should i do with this? please help me

have you reinstalled the video driver? if you've done that and it still does it, the screen on the laptop may be going bad or the lcd panel display cable inside the laptop is pinched or bad. if the laptop is under warranty you have to contact asus tech support. if you're out of warranty, I recommend taking the laptop to a local computer shop for diagnostics/service.

I have a 2007 gmc sierra slt, been having oil consumption issues but tonight, I drive to my office, everythig is good, get out go in office, left it running, 5 minutes max, come back out, check engine...

Usually, when this happens, it means your Oil Pressure Sending Unit has gone haywire. Since it runs fine and seems to have no problems, I would first check this out.
It, I beleive, is either located on the back of the block, down around the distributer, or near the oil filter housing somewhere. I am not sure of the exact location, sorry.

I hope this helps!

Lack of product key for Microsoft Word

All laptops that come preinstalled with MS Office H/S are only trials. Once the trial period has ran out it asks for a product key.
If you want to carry on using MS Office then Microsoft expect you to purchase a product key from them for you to get the full benefits of the office suit.
Alternatively you can use free office software like open office that will open most MS office documents.

Laptop to wireless

The idea of plug link adapters is that you plug one of the adapters into a standard electrical outlet near your broadband router, and connect it to the router with an included Ethernet cable. Next, you plug an identical adapter into an electrical outlet in another place in the home or office, and connect it to another computer with a second included cable. No software, no setup procedures, no drivers. How sweet. For all intents and purposes, it's a wired home network, except it has a couple of these small black devices in between. And the dog can't chew the wires.
The building's electrical lines do the rest — they carry the computers' high-frequency data on top of the low-frequency waves on the electrical transmission lines, and the two can cohabit quite happily without interference.
And you can buy individual powerline adapters as you need them, up to 16 of them before the speed begins to degrade.
What's more important is that this system works far better than a home wireless (WiFi) network, which often can't reach all the corners of the house or office — especially if there's a microwave oven working nearby — and is much slower.

Acer AL1916 can't start

If you press the power button and nothing comes on at all then something isn't providing power to the laptop as it should and you may likely need to replace the battery or the power cord.

Find a replacement battery. Change your battery with a new one then plug it up and turn on to see if this works.

If replacing the battery doesn't work then replace the power cord and trying turning it on again. If this doesn't work either, you have a more serious issue going on.

Not too long ago, I was on vacation, my laptop had been working fine until suddenly it wouldn't come on at all. I went into the office to grab a new battery and power cord. (I work on computers so I had spare parts in my office/Tech Room.)

I got home and replaced the battery then tried to turn it on using the old power cord...didn't work. This was a brand new battery so now I knew that I could rule out the battery as the issue...the only two things left to troubleshoot were the power cord and the laptop itself.

I put my old battery back in the laptop then tried to turn it on using a different power cord and it worked. I didn't need to replace my battery or laptop. The power cord had failed.

I hope that your issue is as simple as this solution. Try confirming whether your battery and power cord are still may just need to replace one or the other.

Thanks for using Fixya.

First attach laptop to an external monitor and using the FN/ F keys toggle back and forth to the external display. If the external works OK then the video display adapter is fine and the problem is the TAB welds on the LCD. Time for a new LCD.

My acer aspire4310 notebook suddenly displays a white screen

If you have blue strip running down vertically from top to bottom then normally there is a problem with LCD or a loose LCD cable.But what I recommend you to test more is tha,t if you tab at the back of your screen ...does this problem occur ???
Incase it does,then its a loose LCD cable problem.You still need
a qualified person who knows how to open the monitor to repair inside.
And again for the White screen it can also be both cases I mentioned above
