Sounds like the pad on the board could be broken if the button itself isn't sticking down when pushed. If so you need to send it to Nintendo if it's in it's warrenty period. If not you are correct it'll cost you to have it replaced.

Hi, the Deep Virus Scan simply means to scan your whole system for viruses (all files on your system, can take a long time),
The virus program in question must be updated daily otherwise it won't find the latest infections.

Defrag C: means goto Windows Explorer, right button click the C: drive , select the tools tab, goto defragmentation and start defragging,

Hope this helps.

Yellow light problem on ps3.comes on after a few min,s .was working fine then when downloading map pack 2 on call of duty 5

Im sorry to hear that you have the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death).

If you still have warrenty left i suggest you to use it.

If you dont have any warrenty left then take a peak here : [ Link ]
and if you find this to hard to do yourself, then im allmost sure that there is a workshop close to you that do these repairs.

you can still send it to service at sony's if you dont have any warrenty left, but its gonna cost you about 150$.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and its a little over a year old. It started acting funny about a month ago. It will work fine for about 5 minutes then it goes to a screen with different colored bars and i...

Hey there,
Colored bars make me think of hardware failure of the 1)screen or the 2)graphics card. Both of these, on a laptop, are going to mean sending it in for repair, out of warranty, and paying their rate, which maybe 150 bucks or more. Now, it might be software, considering it works for a bit, then gives you bars. You would hope it's that,. because you can try to solve it by downloading your most recent video card driver.

Ive had an inspiron and like 4 other laptops. A few times I tried updating my video driver to what ended up to be the wrong one, and it gave me lines and bars on the screen. I had to restart in safe mode and roll back to the old drivers, voila, fixed.

Try to go to dell and download the video card or graphics card drivers for your operating system. Install them, reboot. Does it help?

Try to restart in safe mode by pressing F8 when booting up (you have to press it repeatedly as you boot up). Select safe mode, you'll see some stuff on the screen, dont get scared, you'll load windows without all teh extra baggage. You'll see a kindergarten looking screen with big icons and letters. Dont be scared, it's just a basic video driver that lets you see the screen, but not to its full potential. What you're trying to isolate by using teh computer in this state for 15-20 minutes is "will the problem happen with hardly any software loaded". If it does, it's likely hardware-related, needing repair.

If you need to send it in, you'll pay. they wont overcharge you hopefully, but a new laptop computer costs 400-600 bucks minimum, which is a lot less than it used to be, but more than the cost to swap out a graphics card. A new LCD screen may cost you 175 with labor, but that's a guess since I dont have my 2 dell laptops any more...

Try the things I mentioned, and good luck!

No power/battery won't charge.

try inserting another with the same type of battery, that you can assure that is a good battery. Insert it with your phone then observe! If the same happens with your own battery, then the problem is im sure with your phone, then you need now for a proffesional help by going to cellphone repair shop. But if it will on and it will charge if you insert the new battery, then the problem is with your battery itself. You should purchase with a new battery. Is this solution helful to you? Then you ca send me email at for my further assistance. kindly rate this solution. thank you...
