If it's in warranty send it back to be repaired. I'll assume that you know that. I also assume that by "window" you mean "screen". If I owned it, I would try to see where it is loose and try to wedge a piece of non-conducting substance, preferably rubber, into places that will tighten it. Take a cheap piece of rubber and use a utility knife to shave off the pieces that you need. Don't think that this is a permanent solution - the root cause of the problem still exists and you may be doing this frequently. My second choice, assuming that it's a good laptop would be to take it to a computer repair shop. However, first get an estimate. You may not want to spend that much money on the given laptop, new ones are constantly getting cheaper because the sharply increasing sales of tablets are cutting into the sales of laptops and desktops.

Driver side window will not come up. motor is working but window will not come up

the window regulator has probably broken or the gear has stripped inside the motor. pull the door trim off and see if the wire from the regulator is still conected and tight, if its loose then its probably broken and will need replacing, if it looks tight then try and pull the motor off the window reg and check the regulator drive gear. hope this helps. cheers.

AC window unit pops circuit breaker

Tripping breakers and your cord getting 'noticeably' warm to the touch are both 'bad' signs - and the most likely problem is either your compressor or fan motor is getting ready to 'quit' on you - which constitutes (in most cases with window units) making the smart move toward a 'new' or 'newer used' air conditioner.

There are however a few things you might try:

First - up-plug the AC and take it out of the window

Second - take the outer cover off - so you can see inside real good. Look for 'loose' electrical connections (loose connections generate excess electrical heat) - "tighten" any connections that are loose. Note: be sure and check the plug - see if the prongs are loose/wobbley, (if so you might need a new cord) check where the cord ties into the window unit - check the electrical components to make sure their connections are good and tight - any wires you find 'wire-nutted' together (with those colored plastic wire nuts) - take them apart and 're-do' them - making sure they are tight.

Check the connectors on the"capacitors" (grey/silver/black items from the size of a pack of cigerettes to 2 or maybe 3 times that big) - make sure they are tight on the connectors.

You may have to take the (spades) off the connector and using pliers - crimp them down so they will fit the connectors good and tight.

On the compressor itself - follow the wires (usually 3) to the little removable cap (usually a metal clip holds it in) - take the clip off and pull the plastic cap out and you can see the compressor terminals. Be sure the wires that are attached (usually with wire spades) are good and tight. If they aren't - carefully remove them - re-crimp and re-install - making sure they are tight. Note: in some cases you might need to put a new spade on the wire.

After doing all that - take a water hose and make sure both coils (evaporator where cold air comes out and condenser where hot air comes out) are good and clean. Note: you don't have to be 'real' careful with the water - but try to not get water in the electrical components/wires.

You have to make sure they are both 'real clean,' and of course the filter that goes in front of the evaporator coil must be clean - but you indicated you've already changed that.

Hopefully - you will find some seriously loose connections and once you get them tight and the unit washed real good - you'll be ok, but if it keeps tripping breakers - and the AC cord continues to feel excessively warm to the touch I would think you will need to start thinking about either a Service Tech to repair the AC or buying a new/different one.

As I noted above - if it's a fan motor or a compressor that is bad - you are better off (since your unit is already 7 years old) in my opinion to try and secure a new AC or a fairly new used one - 'especially if it's the compressor.

If it's the fan motor - and your Service Tech gives you a 'fair' price for a changeout, i.e. 'half' what a brand new unit of the same size would cost - then I'd probably let him do that - but try and get a warranty from him of at least 90 days (parts and labor).

Good Luck!

The driver's side rear window problems

You will need to replace the window regulator assembly. Both of the cables should be tight. When is loose its because it has broken in the regulator. The cable regulators are a poor design.

The driver's side power window is skipping or

Most likely the rail has come loose inside the track you can drill a hole and put a #20 nut and screw in it to hold it tight so it won't move the track is the most common thing to wear out on the window. once you repair it it should be fine check all four corners the most common break is in the lower right side looking at the door with it open. Also the track will come loose as well and that can cause you the same problem, with the cover off the door operate it so you can determine which area it is jumping from and then fix it. also lube the tracks with synthetic grease to keep it from being hard to roll up also lube the rollers in the bottom of the track.
