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?

Dryer makes a screeching sound when run

It's probably caused by a coin, nail or screw between the dryer drum and the dryer housing. However strange it may sound, just put your head inside the dryer drum and look around the front juncture between the drum and dryer housing. You may find the offending object fairly easily.

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.

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.

My Asko dryer is thumping loudly. I am finding bits of rubber when the lower panel is removed.

You need to have your drum rollers replaced, they are making the noise because they are falling apart.
Also it could be or include the drum belt breaking down and falling apart...which means its about to break.
Normally pretty cheap parts can be found on the net...look around.
Its a pretty easy fix.

Black will not print, have tried cleaning head

The print head is probably blocked, its no good using the head cleaning option on the printer, you'll just waste ink.

There are several head cleaning solutions, fairly cheap on ebay.

Laptop fell onto my memorex travel drive is broken...all college papers

This is actually fairly common, if the laptop still works with the broken USB socket you can take the cheap approach which is just don't use that port. If you need more ports a USB hub is pretty inexpensive.

Laptop monitor blacks out, but when you hit the toggle....

Sounds like you need a new Switch. Oxidation has probably built up in the switch. It can be fixed. Probably shop around for a certified tech who can replace it. The switch is cheap, Labor is starting around $65 - $90. You said you can faintly see the desktop. This is the invertor board inside the LCD assembly that causes this. Again if it needs to be replaced, the invertor is fairly inexpensive, labor isn't. The technician that ckecks out the laptop can determine what it needs. Yea, your right, it is a good laptop and it is worth fixing. Just a heads up, if the tech says you need a new motherboard, he's lying, find another tech.
