Unfortunately, unless you have the skill to disassemble the laptop and solder a new DC jack onto the motherboard you may be stuck. This is a rather difficult procedure and DC jacks alone can run between 20-80 bucks each. I wish you luck

HP netbook closed during update, now black screen. No discs to reinstall (no disk drives) really stuck, thanks :)


Disc Drives can be rented/bought at stores such as Best Buy, Rent-a-center (or some other rental store). Going to a tech support at a place like best buy (Geek Squad) will have people who can re-install your software.

HP 8710p says "plugged in,


This means there is either an issue with the charger, outlet, or plug. If you have tried restarting your computer and/or plugging in to different outlets, you may need to get another charger. If another one won't work, you'll have to get the port on your computer replaced. The Geek Squad at Best Buy can do this for a low price.

My new battery won't take a charge. HP Dv1170us


Are you sure everything is plugged in correctly? Look on the cord and make sure there are no "shorts" in it becuase sometimes it can have a "short" circuit to it, even if it's new!

Broken HP!!


It is best to contact HP, or an authorised HP Service Centre. Then, you may require to send it back. It won't be free, as your dumb idea wasn't covered by the warranty.

Best Buy is okay, but please don't give it to any repairman if you care for your expensive device, as they may spoil it more.

Go to the HP Support Site, it is great. You can contact by email, phone, and whatever you choose.

A.R.C.H.I.E. is the demonstration software used on all Windows-based PCs sold at Best Buy that are used as demonstration units. The software is not designed to be installed on any PC other than those being used within the store.

Unfortunately, the removal of A.R.C.H.I.E. without the original disc (which is provided monthly to the stores from the corporate offices) is going to be nearly impossible. You have two solutions in this case:

1. Utilize the PC's recovery methods (most likely recovery partition, however you might have a model that came with recovery discs as well. The A.R.C.H.I.E. software prohibits most recovery disc creators from working properly). Note that for this method to work, you must be able to start the recovery process outside of Windows.
2. Bring the computer (along with its AC adaptor, if it is a laptop) to any Geek Squad precinct (any Best Buy store or standalone Geek Squad) for uninstallation of the A.R.C.H.I.E. software (without damage to the underlying operating system). This should be a free service as it is THEIR software running that requires removal for normal operation of the computer, and per company SOP should have been removed prior to sale. This is the preferred method, however you might not have access to a Geek Squad precinct and need it done before you will have access to a precinct again.

Go back to best buy. the closest one to you. and see about yoru exteneded warranty. Toshiba dont deal with the extended warrentys.A 3rd party company is looking after it for you (best buy) i guess geek squad.. If the warrenty is out and you gotta pay 600 dollors to replace your computer motherboard. all depending on what you use it for an entry level laptop is close to 600 dollors great for web browseing and office use school, some games.
