Question about Sharp Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Got a new Gateway desktop computer this week. Didn't want to buy one, but mine got struck by lightening last week, that and my phone (that was a nice quiet blessing for two days)!!! Anyhow, having a terrible time trying to install my Sharp-1655CS onto Vista. It will not allow me to do anything. Made a mistake and called Gateway support, it took 45 min. to get a human and listen to very loud music while on hold. Then they told me to contact you guys to get a download or a CD to install Sharp onto Vista. Man, I did like Windows XP. It was easy to install the copier to. Can you guys help this old lady? Thanks in advance. [email protected]

Go out to the sharp web site and check for a vista update for your machine, if so download it and install your equipment.

Trying to repair a samsung led tv. It was struck by lightening. There are 4 boards in the tv. Do you think if I replace all 4 boards it would work? Could the lightening have damaged the led screen?

any answer here will be pure guessing. and the cost versus the risk of not working by replacing all four boards may make it worth buying a new tv instead.

if you were to try and fix it i would not do anything more than trying to fix or replace the power supply board. . if the power surge has gone further in the electronics. its rarely worth trying to fix

Hello, zx4300 black screen, fan is working, led light works test another hard drive still will not work, very confused please help

I'm beginning to think that the gateway zx4300 all in one has a major defect problem with the motherboard. Mine is 8 months old and the screen went black on me a couple of times then totally went out. I took it back to best buy (still under warranty) they sent it to Kentucky (gateway) 3 weeks later got it back and it's starting to do it again. I'm not happy and am pretty ********** at this point. I use my computer for business and this has been a major inconvenience and money loser. I want to have gateway trade this for a different computer. 8 months old for this to happen is unacceptable.

During a land line phone call, lightening struck nearby and caused my phone to be damaged. It is very hard to hear the person on the other end, and very hard for them to hear me. I have a Crosley...

Sounds like the lightning damaged the ear piece. I would probably buy a new one, repairing it would probably cost more than the new phone, or at least close to it.

How do i install the bios fix for the overheating issue? Need step by step.

You don't NEED to install the bios fix. Go to best buy and buy 2 fans; a 80mm and a 120mm. There's mounts for the fans inside the computer, but gateway didn't install any:-/

I installed Windows 7 on the Dell Optiplex 330, normmally it 's working fine. from last 3 weeks ago, the computer struck and can not do anything.

Windows 7 needs at least 2gbs of memory to work fine and also a good processor.
Where i work we had to buy some memory pents to make this pcs work fine with Windows 7.
if you have a good processor like a Pentium or better you just need to buy memory
i recommend kingston memories, im pretty sure that if you put some memory it will restart to work

Hope to help you.

Pc struck by lightening. it was on a surge protector and plugged straight into the cable internet service, another pc in the house was on a SP but used a router/adapter for internet survived but...

There is NO WAY to tell everything that has been damaged on your computer without testing. You might replace the power supply only to find your motherboard does not work. You may find your DVD drive works, but not your hard drive. You may find that slot 3 no longer functions but slot 2 works fine.

Gateway GT 4016

it could be an electrical problem, but maybe not from your house. power companies sometimes have power surges that can fry a computer. if you go to any walmart and buy a surge protector, it should cure your problem, please note that there is a surge protector that offers a $10000 guarantee, so should you computer fry again turn that into that company that made it and get a new computer.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at
