    i found it. thank you :) it was next to the wireless card and modem card panel and it is soldiered to the motherboard. so i replaced it and let it charge for a while, unplugged it and let it sit, and it is still doing the same thing, it is not keeping the date and time and reverts back to the default settings. i even downloaded the latest bios version 1.70 and that didnt fix it either. i dont know whats wrong with it now?

I found where the cmos battery is located. By the Toshiba tech support website , it's next to the PCMCIA Slot, just behind it. To get to it, Take off LCD, keyboard, top palmrest, hard drive, battery, memory, top power cover,switch board, modem, network. and some others. Too many to describe here. Items to remove not in order.
I Have the service manual downloaded already.

    Was it working before you had flash the bios?
    If it was, you might have made the board now a lemon.

    Let me know

I bought this computer a couple of months ago and have used it about 3 times. When I turned it on, there was no power and it was fully charged before I went offline the last time. Now my battery icon...


> bought this computer a couple of months ago

Then, it should be FULLY covered under WARRANTY, either from the store from where you bought it, or from ACER.

> new battery from COSTCO

It's probably 100% fine; it's your laptop that is the problem.

Exercise the WARRANTY to get the laptop repaired/replaced, at NO COST to you.

My dv4 1548dx battery will not retain it's charge. My warranty just expired, but i believe that this is a hardware malfunction. I've only had it for 1 year and 1 month. Can I get a new battery for free?


Hi.

Batteries are not covered by the same warranty. It is shorter and HP batteries often have this problem of not holding charge after only few months. If you used it for more than 1 year you're kind of lucky!

Pretty sure you will not get a replacement for free. Check your documentation for battery warranty.

Hope this helps!

Screen goes blank intermittently on 60in Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000


I am having the same problem with my Sony. I bought it at Circuit City in November 2007 and the extended warranty, which I thought was for 4 years, has expired. Has anyone else had this problem, and how did you resolve it?

Officejet Pro L7590 printhead message (printheads only 2m. old)!


Pull out the printhead from the computer and check the date under "warranty ends" If the warranty period did not lapse, call HP technical support and tell them about the problem. They will replace the printhead for free. I have gone through 3 black/yellow printheads and I received the replacement printheads via FedEx within 1-2 days. They will send you a pre-paid envelope to return via U.S. Postal Service via US Postal Service.

If the Warranty date on the printhead expired, then you may have to come out of pocket to replace the printhead since HP will argue that they are not obligated to replace the printhead since the manufacturer warranty lapsed.

If this is the case, check to see when you purchased the printer. If the purchase was within a year, the retailer (i.e. Best Buy) is on the hook since there is a 1 year implied warranty on products such as printers, regardless of whether the expiration date on the HP printhead expired.

Hope this helps

Denon AVR788 has a clicking noise


The clicking noise is the protection circuit that is kicking in and repeatedly shutting off the unit because an internal fault has been detected.
If the problem happened before a power surge, and the power supply looks damaged, then the PSU must be replaced.

If the unit is only 3 months old, better contacting Denon and having the one year factory warranty validated, rather than DIY.

See : Denon USA | WARRANTY or contact Denon for more info on your limitede warranty cover.
If the unit has been taken apart, this may invalidate warranty.

If you want to DIY you can find parts here, or from Denon.

Do not forget to leave feedback.

Thanks.

Laptop Gateway mx8711


Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
