2 year old qosmio f10-125 sys board knackered

I got short shrift from the store I bought the aforementioned computer as it was OOW (out of warranty). I insisted that they try to find the problem and they dispatched my machine to TELEPLAN who wanted £505 to fit a new system board. I am prepared to pay to have my laptop fixed ( reluctantly) but am flabbergasted that it would cost this amount of money for a 2 year old machine to fail so catastrophically. Exactly who do I need to complain to as the shop in question treated me like a nuisance and at one point said it would be easier for me to send it off to a computer repair place of my choosing rather than them doing it as it quote; "takes far too much of our time and space to deal with...."

For that much money you can all most buy a new one one line or at a local store.

There is no way to "find" the BIOS password, as it is embedded in the computer's hardware. There is a DIY for resetting it here:
The easiest way to get back into BIOS is by replacing the motherboard or having a shop perform the aforementioned procedure.

Just bought new qosmio , and simply wont turn on. Is there any trick or just need to use waranty. Is problem in adapter maybee? Regards, Kristian kraljic

If it's still under warranty, you are lucky, but you can still try if it's a small faulty. First disconnect the charger and Switch On with the battery installed. It it doesn't work, remove the battery and try power on with the Charger connected. Still nothing, then check whether it is charging or not (battery installed and charger connected), you'll see a light if it's charging. If nothing seems working, then you last option is the Warranty.
(do not open the case or any cover, it may void the warranty).

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I just bought a mini MSI pc from a friend..can I register it in my name..thanks

You can register the computer in your name here

Here is the information on the warranty

The computer should have been registered after it was purchased. It has a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase and the warranty is non-transferrable. If your friend registered it in his name then the 1 year warranty is tied to him and cannot be transferred to you. If you re-register the computer in your name you will not qualify for any warranty work. I suggest you leave it in your friend's name(if he is a good friend) and if there is any problems with the computer have him contact MSI for warranty work. If the computer is over a year old then it is past the warranty date anyways(unless he got an extended warranty) so re-registering the computer in your name would allow for e-mail updates from MSI and any recall information for your computer.

The laptop seems to be working as it should but

Well Lena the three beep sound and there is no display is a typical issue well all you need to do is disconnect everything from the sys and you need to open the panel at the back of the sys which has the ram slots. Remove the RAM and swap them between each other and than connect everything back to the sys. Turn on the sys and i believe the sys should turn on now without any problems

Spilled Water on Toshiba Qosmio G25-AV513

If you are pretty good at computers then you can open up the computer and see just how bad the damage is. You may need to replace the keyboard, or a few parts of he mother board. If it was water I think you would have more of a chance, but the sugar will definitely cause problems if it hit any circuit boards. Your best bet is to take out your hard drive, make it an external hard drive and get a new computer.

pop the keyboard and look on the board next to the clock battery. You should see three jumper points, WITH THE POWER OUT AND ALL BATTERIES DISCONNECTED, short terminals 1 and 2 with the end of a flat bladed screwdriver. Replace all power sources and reconnect the power.

I had the same problem, what you need to do is call Pamela Saunders at Toshiba Corporate in Irving, CA and she will get it repaired for you at no cost to you regardless of warranty. This is a bad batch of computers.

The Phone Number is: 800-457-7777 or 949-462-6000
