I dropped the Laptop, causing some damage. I need to know the name of a part, it is the port on right side where charger plugs in. The port complete with 2 wires has come out. I am on a limited budget and hired someone to come look. The port was pretty damaged, so he pulled out so that I have a pos and neg hanginfg out with the damaged "port", He sautered something and now I have to keep rigging this up and it is getting harder and harder. I just don't have the money. What is this part called and how can I get the schematics. Also 2 weeks ago(after dropping)I came home from doctor and found my screen to have a what looks like an ink blotch and bottom 1/4 of screen is difficult.i have been told is the screen. I called and of it is not covered since I did it. I have a cousin that knows computers very well and said he would come when he can. What is the cheapest way to buy these parts. How do I get the schematics

You need to get your cousin to help you before something else gets damaged.

Sounds like the power-in jack has come out but can't be sure. Photos would help. I'm looking for one, just haven't found it yet. If this tech soldered something up for you, he should have repaired it unless he is working for gratitude only. Any half-baked tech can jury-rig a power connection for someone who has physical limitations in a way that it will not be difficult for them.

Go to eBay and research your laptop for two things, first you need a broken one for parts, namely the power jack, second you need a new LCD display. Only the display. Your cousin should be able to change this without much trouble unless he is not handy with small tools. Since your budget is limited, take your time, you will find a bargin if you work at it.

Laptops are tedious to take apart and put back together and there are online forums that will tell you how to do it, as you have access to the internet I don't need to tell you how, just that they are there.

As for the schematics, unless you are trying to modify the electronics, you probably don't really need them and finding them is harder then just replacing the parts with used ones.

Good luck.

Kimberly, you don't need schematics. If you want I will fix your laptop for free. I have the tools, equipment etc. The dc jack is not all that difficult...in your case it sounds like the dc jack is connected to the motherboard via a cable. The end that you see slides into a couple of grooves which hold it in place on the side of the case. The other end uses a small plug and connects to the motherboard. The whole piece can ve ought on Ebay for approx. 30-40 bucks. The screen if bad is not overly hard to replace either. The front bezel piece comes off and it is a matter of unscrewing it from the hinges and frame, and unplugging it from the motherboard cable and the inverter. My website is www.parrotheadpcrepair.com
All I would need you to do is ship the laptop to me and insure it. I will try to give you an estimated time of repair depending on how long it takes me to get the parts. I'll then notify you by email of the tracking number for the shipment back. I am a Firefighter by trade and repair laptops in my off time. It would be my pleasure to help you out. My business cell phone is on the web site. Call me if you need my help. Chip ParrotHead PC Repair

Hello,

Unfortunately, you can NOT upgrade your net-book Acer Aspire One with a Graphics card. Some Acer Laptops have this feature, with a graphics card already installed or with a graphics card integrated into the system board.
If you want to have a laptop with higher graphics power, buy a laptop from Acer with the "G" ending, like the Acer Aspire 8940G for example.

That's happened to mine today, I had to lift the left plastic square and just tap the spare metal bit to select things, I think you can buy replacement parts, but a friend of mine thinks you have to buy the whole touchpad.

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Hi.....I'm from Wpg.MB. Canada. I bought a TomTom 3rd.Edition on April 13th.2008 in Grand Forks for $199.99 at Best Buy. I got it home and it doesn't work. I asked my friends to show me how to use it,...


Hello cruisergirl,

I am sorry to hear about your problems with the GPS. Unfortunately, Best Buy™ stores in Canada are not able to process returns on products purchased at U.S. Best Buy locations (and vice versa). At this point, your best bet is going to be contacting TomTom for service. They are the manufacturer of the device and can provide repair under the limited warranty. Their number is 1-866-486-6866.

Best Regards,
Ken
