Question about Computers & Internet

It appears that our laptop described below, that we bought in Nov. 07 may have to have a new Pixel b/c there isn't a screen when it's turned on. We didn't buy insurance but hopefully it's under some type of warrenty?? Can you guide me to see if in fact it's the Pixel.

Hello cmflaptop,

Looks like its either faulty RAM or Display. In any case, I wouldn't advise you to open the laptop. Best bet is to take it back to the point of purchase. Since you only bought it in Nov.07, it should still be under warranty.

Should you have any further questions, please feel to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

I have a laptop that I sign in with a password and then get a blue screen.


There are a few things which could cause the problem that you describe. However, as your laptop is less than a month old go back to the vendor/shop where you bought it and get them to sort it out. Take your receipt with you.

You have an automatic 12 month warranty with a new item. Don't try and do anything yourself as this may invalidate the warranty.

The onus is on the vendor. They either have to give you a new unit, refund your money or repair/refurbish it.

This may sound like a cop-out but you'll find that vendors are very helpful indeed. Laptops aren't easy to repair by yourself .. so .. let the vendor sort it out. Consumer law is on your side.

A few years back I bought a brand new laptop in a computer superstore. When I got it home it didn't work. The next day I went back to the superstore and there in the queue at the customer service desk was a woman who had bought an identical model the previous day .. and it didn't work. All sorted out within minutes.

Acer monitor has green lines on the scren


Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens use less energy and display a clearer picture than the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays that preceded them. These new LCD screens now dominate the computer monitor market. From time to time, however, pixels can become stuck and a green line can display on the screen. Removing this line is sometimes possible without sending the screen to the manufacturer for expensive repair.

Locate the pixels that are stuck on the screen. Download a free screen repair software program, such as UD Pixel or JScreenFix. Run the software and allow it to find and attempt to repair the stuck pixels. Turn off the LCD monitor. Apply the damp cloth directly over the stuck pixels and use a gentle pressure to spread the liquid within the screen.

Is there a system recovery disk for the emachine ET1161-07 desktop pc?


If you bought the computer new and did not receive a recovery disc with it then the recovery software can be reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer.
The steps for re-installation:

  • Restart the computer
  • When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  • When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  • After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

If you bought the computer used try the above method. If that fails then it came with a recovery disc but you didn't get it with the computer. The only thing you can do is contact eMachines support for help or purchase a new copy of Windows and reinstall it with that.
I hope this helps. If not and you need any help with reinstalling a new version of windows please let me know.

Yes i have a black dot on my new 2008 toshiba notebook.Do you know how to fix it.


If it is just one pixel that is black, you cannot do anything about it. It is what we call a "dead pixel". The best thing to do is to send it back in to the manufacturer and get a free replacement.

It's not the answer you wanted to hear, but again, there is nothing you can do about it.
