Gee you have two them and theyre only a year old one would think they had warranty? For two machines to clap out with a chip problem is highly suspious ie on a technician say so. I dont blame you for not being impressed. Are you sure its not a driver problem. Could you be a bit more specific as tothe problem or causes of your problem gee two of them highly improbable but yet not not impossible I suspect. Its got to be a software orblem. Not a hardware. I would hate to get your hopes up but investigate before you leap into the fire "and get burnt" go here and find your country ask them for support and also tell them your predicament! good luck

Hey nu question is how to fix my laptop i has a problem with the laptop i dont know what to do

Hello -

The motherboard for your laptop may have "died." That is what happened with a previous laptop I had.

I suggest you locate a computer repair business near where you reside and take your laptop (with the power cord) there for one of the technicians to evaluate. You will probably need to pay a fee for the evaluation.

If the technician determines that the laptop can be repaired, the evaluation fee you paid will be deducted from the final repair cost.

If the laptop cannot be repaired, ask at the computer repair business if the files saved on your computer hard drive can be downloaded from the dead laptop so that you can install them in a replacement. Note: I suspect you probably have not run daily backups of the files saved to your computer so that you can retrieve the data and install it in a replacement.

Best wishes.

Screen flashes constantly

If the screen is flashing constantly and the computer is still on, it could be a few things.

1. The video cable is probably loose and needs to be reseated on the motherboard.

2. The screen could be going out and needs to be replaced.

All these things are something you should have a computer technician look at.

Hope this helps.

Break laptop two hinges

If you need to ask "how" to fix the hinges, you probably should STOP and take the computer to a qualified technician, for repairs. You might have to look on eBay to find a "dead" laptop with "good" hinges, and then the technician can "transplant" the hinges from one computer to another.

I forgot the hard drive password of my gateway laptop and i need solution to enable me use my hard dive back


there is no easy solution for your problem.

Solution 1) contact gateway and get them to solve the problem for you. you will probably have to send the laptop to them.

Solution 2) replace the hard drive to a new one.

Solution 3) remove the hard drive from the laptop and attach it to a desktop computer, run a special software called MHDD and enter the command DISPWD to disable the password from the drive.

There is no simple solution to your problem, either do any of the above or get professional technician to assist you, or do the whole job for you.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Acer Ferrari 4000 power up with blank screen, no

If you cannot "press DELETE to enter setup", then it's the motherboard, or the battery, or the AC power-supply that has the problem.

Since it's likely that at least one of the battery and the power-supply are working, it's probably the motherboard (or the CPU on the motherboard) that is failing.

Take the computer to a qualified technician.

Replacing the CPU is possible, and is not very expensive.
Replacing the motherboard is possible, but is very expensive
(a few hundred dollars for a replacement motherboard, plus $100 for the technician's time to disassemble/replace/reassemble).

The only "good" news is that your files on your disk-drive probably are intact, and can be read and transferred to a new computer.

Of course, you can try to sell the "dead" computer on eBay, so that somebody else can "frankenstein" your computer with their computer, to combine two dead computers into one working one.

My monitor is not displaying after few minutes when it starts

Connect the monitor to the VGA-output port of any laptop.
Does it work for a few hours, or just a few minutes?

If it works for hours, then your computer's video-card is the problem.

If it works for just a few minutes, then it's time to replace the monitor (it's too expensive to get a qualified technician to try to repair it).

Same issue. Dies on boot. Doesn't even seem to load BIOS.

Very common with these models.

Try reseatting / swapping the memory modules.

Booting the computer with the battery, hard drive and dvd drive disconnected.

Let me know what happens. You're probably having a problem with the motherboard and there is an extended warranty fix program available, but let's check the above things first.

Laptop won't power up

Hi Pastor Len

Try to depress the On/Off button and hold it down for 5 - 10 Seconds. If nothing happens then the Toggle of the switch is brobably broke!!! You will probably be able to have a technician fix it for you, if not, you could remove the hard drive (yourself, or a Technician) and have it attached to another computer to retrieve any data.

Will Not Power On

Assuming that this is a laptop then it sounds like a few possible problems. Very common in laptops is a D/C socket problem. Even a Hairline crack were the power socket is soldered. This can be fixed try, Or it could be a problem with RAM. Depends how many beeps you were getting but a laptop will not boot without RAM. Any more help just ask.
