Computer Buying Tips


Tips in buying computers

1. What should I buy? Branded or non branded computer.
Branded computers are known as quality products. They are manufactured under certain standards and quality control methods. But the disadvantage is the high price. In the other hand non branded PCs are low in price but cannot guarantee the quality. Whether if you buy branded or non branded following details will be help you to make a decision easily.

2. Warranty

I consider this as the most important of all computer buying tips. Every new computer should carry minimum 1 year warranty for parts and labor. Please check the warranty period and conditions carefully before purchasing a computer. Some suppliers provide additional years of warranty with an additional charge. My personal advise is to go for this extended warranty. Its worth.

3. Supplier

Always buy from a reputed supplier. Don't buy from small shops just to save few dollars. Most of small computer shops are using cheap quality parts. Also you will be in trouble in getting warranty if they close down shops within one year.

4. Software license

You may get operating system and few additional software packages free with your computer. Please check whether they are licensed copies and you should get all documents related to license.

5. System configuration

Think what kind of work you are going to do with your computer. Most of the users are purchasing computers to browse Internet. Then an average PC with 256MB memory, Pentium IV CPU, 64MG graphic card, 20GB Hard drive will be enough. But if you are going to use powerful games etc then go for 1 GB memory, 128MB or more VGA, 88GB + HDD

6. Internet / Networking

How are you connecting to the Internet? If you're using a high speed Internet connection, such as cable broadband or DSL, you'll want to make sure you have a network card built into your system. If you have a wireless network at home or at the office, save money and installation time by buying the wireless card built right into the computer.

7. Monitor

Monitors have different sizes and types such as 17", 21", flat screen etc. Don't go for 21" screen unless you are a graphic designer or CAD operator. The price difference between 17" to 21" is very high. Flat (slim) monitors are easy to use and looks good. Don’t throw away your monitor if it's still working properly. Instead, keep it and save a chunk of money by just replacing your old CPU [computer tower]. Monitors last much longer than CPUs and the technology is usually compatible between your old monitor and the new CPU. However, if you’re dissatisfied, then monitors, keyboards and mouse are the three tools to spend extra money on, since you use them every day!

8. Operating System

Always ask for the latest Operating System

I BOUGHT A USED COMPAQ FLAT-SCREEN MONITOR ON EBAY TO USE WITH MY DELL PC, BUT IT ONLY HAS A VERY SHORT UNUSUAL CORD THAT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY COMPUTER & DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANY KIND OF POWER CORD...


Compaq has a habit of using what I refer to as a "mickey mouse" power cord, (because if you look at the connector upside-down, it resembles mickey mouse).
These cords ARE available in longer lengths at computer stores, but it might be cheaper and easier to simply buy an extension cord to plug it into.

Now, you say not compatible with your computer...are you saying that the computer connector AND the power cord are BOTH an issue, or were you just saying that this power cord would never fit your computer like most other monitor power cords would?

How to connect emachine flat monitor to my computer?


Hello,

It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.

Best Regards,
Franklin, C2Solutions

Gateway flat LCD dead


I'm not sure if your referring to the lcd monitor (gateway brand) or a laptop's lcd screen not working anymore.

1. if it's an lcd monitor...
a. test monitor in a different pc before assuming the problem is the lcd screen
b. replace the monitor if after testing monitor is in deed the item failing.

2. if it's the lcd screen from your gateway laptop.
a. you may be able to attach a regular analog monitor to the paralel port on your gateway.. test and see if the monitor that you attach will give you a picture (you may have to toggle with some some keys on your laptop keyboard to make have the signal going to the "externa" or attached monitor.
if the other monitor does not work either.. you video controller on your motherboard on your laptop may be failing and you may not have other options that to replace your laptop.
b. if the external/attached monitor works.. very likely the problem is the lcd screen for that you need to get a replacement and you may have to contact gateway to find out about pricing (or places to send your laptop for service if you're still within warranty). if you have an old laptop you may have to considere simply replacing the unit as buying a new lcd screen may very likely be more expensive than the same working laptop.

When switching on my lcd flat screen there is an electrical buzzing sparking noise coming from the monitor and it wont switch on any more


Please bring it to a repair shop sooner rather than later. They will let you know if it can be repaired. But have a look at the price of a new one. Sometimes it is the better option!

I have a ViewSonic VE175 monitor, which has a damaged monitor cord; some of the pins have broken off. Is it possible to repair or is not cost effective and that I should go and purchase a new monitor. ...


This is a sad way for computer manufacturers to get you to buy another monitor when the cord is bad. Some monitors have detachable cords that you can purchase at many big box stores for a reasonable price.

The short answer is no - the average person cannot repair this themselves UNLESS you have a familiarization of electronics and know what to buy and repair on the back of the monitors.

This takes a lot of time out of your day to replace a monitor cord thats permanently fixed to the back of the montior.

My long term solution to you is go and purchase yourself a flat panel monitor which has dropped in price, and make sure you have a detachable cord on that model so you can easily replace it in the future should it becomed damaged.
