I have a custom build that cost about $1400 and is equivalent to about a $2000 system pre-made. Computers are not very hard to build as long as you aren't putting all sorts of custom mods in it. i suggest you desktop with powerful features

It sounds like you are a novice when it comes to understanding how to troubleshoot and repair a PC.
I would recommend that you get a packaged system that carries at least a 1-year parts and labor warranty. Dell has some excellent deals on desktop systems and their warrantees technical support are very good

Replace power supply motherboard

Replacing power supply mother board risks fire and shock. For the cost of a new supply, It is far better to replace it. I believe that is a standard power supply. You can buy them from Staples or Best Buy for cheap.. If you're not sure of the correct part, remove the old one (only 4 screws and a few cables) Make note of cable connection locations.. but really, it is pretty hard to put a plug into the wrong socket. Bring the old supply to your supplier of choice and match it with a new one.. Higher wattage is OK, lower is not
Good luck

Tele wide switch doesn't work . it's a dimage z1 2004

You most likely need a new switch but it's no longer available. Even if you can find one, then it costs more than if you just buy another used but fully functional z1 or even a later and better specified model.

Your camera was never designed with repairs in mind, but was designed for a minimum 5 year lifespan which it's now comfortably exceeded. Even if you do buy another z1 then it will also be just waiting for it's first major failure, so you may wish to look at buying something like a new Fuji Finepix s1600. It does everything and more that your z1 does to a far better standard, and as the model has just been discontinued you can buy them brand new with a full warranty for less than £70 in the UK and probably rather less if you live in North America.

Why does my computer shut off by itself? it is a hp pavilion a305 pc desktop. we tried cleaning all the dust out but it didn't help

HP skimps on powers supplies which causes them to run at near-capacity and eventually fail. That case should accept a standard ATX supply but if buying on eBay (suggested-lots cheaper) check with seller for compatibility. Do NOT replace the old supply with the same power rating; choose one with 50% or greater capacity; i.e. replace 250W with 350-400W. It won't cost hardly any premium or use more power, just run under less stress.

Can I use standard AA batteries in my Flip Ultra?

Yes, no problems, the Ultra takes AAs. You are better off with rechargeables in the long run, since they will cost you less, but standard AAs will work.
