Normaly, with warranties if the unit went defective on its own, there should be free service during the warranty period. If the user abuses or breaks the device by any means, then the warranty may be void.

You should ask the dealer or ever who sold you the warranty about the terms and conditions.

In the instrction manual, or the warranty policy sheets, there normaly should be a copy of their policy.

I accidently uninstalled my sound from my laptop hnow can i install it back


driver rollback, or you can let windows find the driver for it.

click the start button (bottom left corner, windows logo), then right click computer, and left click properties.

the system information screen will pop up, then look to the left of that box for device manager. open up device manager (allow if prompted for permission), look for sound, video and game controllers drop down list. if you see a upside down triangle with a black exclamation point next to sound, right click the device. choose update driver software, which will let windows search for new driver software. make sure you are connected to the internet, or this will not work.

I have the cq56-115dx laptop....it was dropped on the ground by accident....when turned on you can see a definate crack in the right hand corner and a couple vertical color lines across the top of the...


if the screen has crack on it the only way is for you to replace the LCD or you may contact your manufacturer to extend the warranty. I believe that it will cost you more if you bring your laptop to a regular technician than renewing your warranty.

I dropped my computer now my screen is all messed up, I do not see a crack in my screen , what part would i need to fix this


if your screen is messed up, than you'll have to replace the screen. Monitors don't need to be cracked to be broken. Luckily, replacement monitors for laptops can be inexpensive online.

You can either replace the screen or you can work on your laptop with a broken screen. Replacing the laptop screen is quite costly depending on your laptop model and availability of your parts.

I dropped my laptop and now the screen is messed up.


Ack. Sounds like you might need to replace your screen (sounds pricey but is cheaper than a new laptop). You can find second hand/refurbished screens or another Aspire with a working screen being sold for parts on Ebay or here

On a side note, if you a have a PC monitor lying around, you can access your files by hooking it up to your laptop via the dvi slot. Granted, it seems a bit ghetto but its a quick fix until you get something more permanent.

I recently broke my iPhone screen and completely shattered a dell laptop a few years ago. You know all those people who are adamant about you buying proper carrying/protective cases? Screw 'em.

Broken screen


You might find a replacement LCD screen on EBay.
Failing that you can connect your laptop to an external monitor, of course you would be desk bound.

Screen


Your LCD screen is broken this occurs from dropping the lcd or putting too much force/pressure on it. The black discoloration is is the liquid crystal leaking. It is repairable but the question is do you want to spend the money to repair it. A new lcd will cost you around $350+. You can also check ebay they might have compatible LCDs that might work for a lot less. According to the specs you need to took for a 12.1" 1024*768 XGA TFT Standard aspect lcd screen but beware not all LCDs with those specs will work. If your interested I am experienced in replacing laptop screens.
