    I have an Emachine T2542 with Windows Xp. I had it turned on yesterday and was in the middle of editing some photos, when it shut off. There was not shutdown screen or anything. It just turned completely off and now it won't turn on. I checked the outlet on the power supply it's plugged into and it is getting power.

My compter always shuts' down within 5-30 mintues


Clean the cooling fan with a vacuum cleaner CAREFULLY!
This sounds like when the CPU has been working for a short while, it gets overheated and stops working. Check for fluff and dust in the cooling air vent.

What error message do you get when you try to change the audio options? I assume you are getting an error message because You're noting that the computer won't allow you to change the options.
1) reboot, which I'm sure you have done.
2) answer my question and write back.

I received a X2gen monitor , model MG19E, from Best Buy warranty service. This monitor was replacement for a previous monitor that went out. I only had the X2gen monitor for just a few months and now it...


It depends. When a company replaces a component that is in warranty with another component, the only warranty that transfers is the remainder of the warranty on the original product. So if I had a monitor with a three year warranty, and it stopped working after 2 years and 11 months, the company replaces it with a brand new monitor. That brand new monitor will only carry a one month warranty because that's all the warranty you had left.

That being said, make sure you let BB know that this was a replacement monitor for one that was under warranty. They may need the original monitor's specifications to look it up for you.

My kensington optical2.0 wireless mouse will not work on my toshiba sattelite 300 series vista home premium after downloading driver


please follow the follwing steps:

1. remove the device from the computer.

2.remove unkown devices from the compter. follow steps.
a) select the compter icon on the desktop and right click and select manage.
b) select device manager.
c) look for heading usb devices or unkown devices. if there are unkown devices in your compter that selection tree would be open. just select select the unkown devices and click delete. confirm the same.

3) post deleting all unkown devices, reboot your laptop.
now keep the driver disk handy which came along with the mouse or the driver you have downloaded., preferablly install the driver if its an executable file before connecting the device, other wise save the file to your desktop and ensure the driver is not in a zip or a rar archive, please extract the same.

4) connect the device, the compter would search the driver, failing to find the driver compter would ask for the options. select that you have the disk under advanced option. select the driver you have download and it would show you the device and please continue the installation with the same driver.

You are done... your device would work then.

I bought our daughter an HP laptop computer for Christmas year before last. We have taken that computer back to Best Buy so much they know us by name. They claim they have even sent it back to HP twice...


Is it still under warranty?

Would suggest calling HP Customer Support at 1-800-HP INVENT to see what they can do. They will be able to look up the repairs based on the serial # of the laptop.

Most replacements are only offered after 3rd time the same part is replaced.

You could also try Best Buy customer service at 1-888-237-8289.

Hope this helps.
