Finding a laptop

I will be heading to college in the fall and am looking for a laptop. I want a fairly cheap one; probably around $1,000 but the cheaper the better. I want to use it with i-tunes, to save photos, and to save school work. I also want quick internet connection capabilities. What's the right computer for me?

Where would you buy a laptop that is cheap but has a good memory

As far as buying computers there is no exact spot to purchase one for cheap but, if you know what to look for finding one for a fair price will be very easy. Now with memory it is important to know that there are different types of memory. One is your ram which is your virtual memory. This allows you to have more programs running at once. A good size of ram to have is anything from 8gb and up. The other memory is the type that holds the data you download or put in your computer the best and cheapest way to do this is to buy a normal laptop and but an external hard drive. They are around $100 and up and will end up being chaper and easier then worrying about your hard drive memory.

Laptop charged but wont turn on

It's is a common problem with cheap Acer laptops around 1-2 years old ( maybe longer) you may find sometimes it does turn on very rarely. You could try taking the battery out overnight to let the laptop fully discharge. You may find this fixes it, but probably temporarily. Failing the above check the warranty and contact Acer. This is a motherboard fault so is difficult to repair.

Megallen 4730 replacement screen

if you need to find a new screen, i'd suggest looking around on Ebay for something fairly cheap, however if you type "replacement screen" into your search you're most likely not going to find anything cheap, you will have better luck looking up "Megallen 4730 parts" or something along those lines, i had to replace a computer screen recently and i found a very reasonably priced on on Ebay.

Sounds as though the service is not yours. In which case you may be unable to.
Since this is probably the case. It could be that your system settings are not set just right for the router(s) providing the signals... maybe you've preset an IP address, or some other setting is incompatible or the connection site already is at it's full capacity

You could also be too far away and need a booster...

Try entering without a passphrase

If it turns out to be a card failure, you could find them cheap on craisglist under either heading, electronics or computer section

Well some keys of my laptop keyboard is not working. i am using N120 of Samsung Pls help me

If you were to plug in an external keyboard and all the keys on the external work then you probably have a problem with the laptop keyboard and replacement is your best option.
They are fairly cheap, see ebay, and not bad to change.
Hope this helps.

Some keys arent functionin

You probably need to replace the keyboard, which is fairly simple. You will need to pop up the strip above the keyboard to access the screws that hold it in place. You should be able to find a new keyboard on ebay relatively cheap. Good luck!

Laptop won't boot from AC power but will on the battery. I'm pretty sure my power cord died and fried the DC connector. Is it possible to fix this by replacing the DC jack?

You can try, but that's a fairly delicate procedure - it's very unlikely that JUST the physical jack itself is fried, you are probably looking at a full power supply board replacement - probably $150-200 just for the part itself. Mainboards are online for around $2-300 as well - I use myself for laptop parts - best prices around. Good luck!

Yes you can use it anywhere. If you have a wireless router in your home you can use the internet there and use it at other wireless locations as well like the library.
