Your PC isn't really old at 8 months. Most systems can be upgraded with more memory, a faster processor, larger hard drive, new hardware, and the list goes on. Are you running Windows XP? Windows Vista, is the latest OS from Microsoft, but I understand that XP is still supported. I guess the short answer would be to ask yourself: does it do what you need it to do? For example, I upgraded from my previous PC when I decided to do more stuff with DVD editing, and my old PC was a bit too slow to handle the higher speeds needed for editing video files to DVD's. You might as mentioned ealier in my post inquire about upgrading your PC instead. Figure out the costs, and then compare the costs with those of just buying a new PC. Then after comparing both options make your decision based on what you feel best meets your needs. PS: I still run Windows ME on an Intel Celeron 750 mhz laptop; for what I use it for it still works okay...BNG

You might be able to get a recovery CD from the manufacturer instead of where you bought the computer. For E-Machines you can go to https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=eMachines and enter the serial number of your unit to get information on ordering recovery media. The recovery cd will have a factory image of the hard drive on it eliminating the need for an actual Vista CD.

You cannot create a new account if your current profile still exists. Facebook will match your name and other personal information to your old account and deny you the ability to create a new account. You must first delete your old account by contacting them. Why can you not access your old Facebook account?

My CISNET desk top power supply fan needs replacing. Staples ordered the part - but I want to see if I can get it faster. Who sells them? Thanks. (I already googled). The hard drive was replaced 4 months...


A power supply is what is called an FRU (Field Replaceable Unit). Generally you don't replace parts on the power supply, it is cheaper to just order a new power supply. Also, office supply stores aren't usually the best places to buy computer parts. Try this place (http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=58&name=Power-Supplies&Order=PRICE). I have bought extensibly from them and have had absolutely no trouble.

Start up repair and recovery


Thank you for your response.
I finally did get it fixed yesterday with help from an Acer agent on the phone. I had to re-install the OS, and loose all my files, but none that I can't replace. The pop did sound electrical, but it hasn't done it since I've re-installed the OS. The computer is only around 8 months old, and I stild have a few months of the one year warranty left on it. Before it all happened I installed Windows Messenger Along with my Yahoo Messenger, and Was using a few registry cleaners, in which I may have accidentally deleted something in the registry. Anyhow, it is back to normal, and Im gonna be a little more careful with these registry cleaners, and as soon as I get the extra money, Im gonna get me an extra external drive.

I bought a HP M8430F and would like to install a 2nd hard drive


By set up differently you mean and ATA or SATA difference? That shoudll not matter as long as  the windows are alread on the first harddrive of the HP  Since your drive that you want to move is the second drive and does not contain the operating syastem you should be able to just phisically move the drive from one machine to the other. The new computer will see and install the drive as "FOund ne hardware" and asign it a letter. It will not disturb the data.

Computer won't load anything


Possible RAM problem, also failing electrolytic capacitors in the power supply and/or motherboard can cause these problems.

Look for swollen/bulging/leaking electrolytic capacitors.

It might help if you mention make/model of the computer and the operating system you are using.
