Computer Buying Tips


Tips in buying computers

1. What should I buy? Branded or non branded computer.
Branded computers are known as quality products. They are manufactured under certain standards and quality control methods. But the disadvantage is the high price. In the other hand non branded PCs are low in price but cannot guarantee the quality. Whether if you buy branded or non branded following details will be help you to make a decision easily.

2. Warranty

I consider this as the most important of all computer buying tips. Every new computer should carry minimum 1 year warranty for parts and labor. Please check the warranty period and conditions carefully before purchasing a computer. Some suppliers provide additional years of warranty with an additional charge. My personal advise is to go for this extended warranty. Its worth.

3. Supplier

Always buy from a reputed supplier. Don't buy from small shops just to save few dollars. Most of small computer shops are using cheap quality parts. Also you will be in trouble in getting warranty if they close down shops within one year.

4. Software license

You may get operating system and few additional software packages free with your computer. Please check whether they are licensed copies and you should get all documents related to license.

5. System configuration

Think what kind of work you are going to do with your computer. Most of the users are purchasing computers to browse Internet. Then an average PC with 256MB memory, Pentium IV CPU, 64MG graphic card, 20GB Hard drive will be enough. But if you are going to use powerful games etc then go for 1 GB memory, 128MB or more VGA, 88GB + HDD

6. Internet / Networking

How are you connecting to the Internet? If you're using a high speed Internet connection, such as cable broadband or DSL, you'll want to make sure you have a network card built into your system. If you have a wireless network at home or at the office, save money and installation time by buying the wireless card built right into the computer.

7. Monitor

Monitors have different sizes and types such as 17", 21", flat screen etc. Don't go for 21" screen unless you are a graphic designer or CAD operator. The price difference between 17" to 21" is very high. Flat (slim) monitors are easy to use and looks good. Don’t throw away your monitor if it's still working properly. Instead, keep it and save a chunk of money by just replacing your old CPU [computer tower]. Monitors last much longer than CPUs and the technology is usually compatible between your old monitor and the new CPU. However, if you’re dissatisfied, then monitors, keyboards and mouse are the three tools to spend extra money on, since you use them every day!

8. Operating System

Always ask for the latest Operating System

I bought an Asus Eee 1201HAB running windows XP for my daughter this month at Christmas from Best Buy. 2 days ago the screen went black...or unreadably dark. At the right angle in bright light I can...


Hi,

It sounds very much like there is a problem with the LCD inverter. The inverter powers the backlight of the LCD panel making it light up so you can see it.

With the netbook being brand new i recommend that you take the netbook back to Best Buy and either have them replace the unit for a new one or have them arrange to send it back to Asus for repair.

The netbook should have come with at least 1 years manufacturers warranty so there should be no problem arranging for the webbook to go in.

I find it strange how a brand new netbook would fail in such a way so early in its life.

Please post back if you require anymore advice.


Regards.

Screen is fading left to right. text starts black and turns to brown


Might be that your monitor is starting to go bad. Try another known good working monitor on the computer. If it works properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the 2nd monitor doesn't work properly then its a problem with your video card.

If your original monitor is the culprit then it could be bad caps on the main board but regardless you could possibly take it back to Best Buy and get it replaced since it should at least still be under the manufacturers warranty.

X2Gen 17" LCD Monitor Shuts Off


It might be the power adapter.How long has this been going on? Have you emailed Newegg to see if they would replace it for you ? did you buy the extended warranty? It might also be your power cable. The worse case could be that something in the printed circuit board failed. I would say you have a few choices 1) computer store - have them check the monitor 2) Email NEWEGG and see if they will replace it 3) repair/replace the monitor

Monitor


Try another monitor to determine if the trouble is in the monitor or the computer's video circuitry. If it's due to the computer, install a new video card or replace the current one.

If the monitor is at fault, it is possible that bad capacitors in its power supply might be causing the problems, or there may be poor solder connections. Both are typical failures in many products. But given the relatively low cost of monitors today, repair is often uneconomical. Not too many shops will even attempt repairs. There's not a lot you can do except to replace the it.

Yes, it's only a couple of years old, and you have every right to feel "this should not be happening." But the sad fact is that consumer products are very cheaply made these days. Once a product is past its warranty period, the manufacturer doesn't care any more. That's also why stores push you to buy replacement warranties when you purchase a product.

I'm not sure about the inverter part of this but have you checked the menu options on the monitor itself to be sure the brightness and contrast haven't gotten messed up? Sometimes as a monitor gets older it requires more brightness to look the same.
