Question about Toshiba Qosmio G15 Notebook

1 Answer

G15 I bought quosmio G15 on Ebay and it worked perfectly fine for the first few weeks. The guy who selled it to me sent me an extra RAM with it. I put it in and when I turned on the machine it made a blue screen and turned itself off. THe blue screen was for a very short time, so I couln't read anything there (and to be honest I was also doing other things and not really expecting this to happen) so I don't know what was on the screen. I took of the Ram and since then it's not operating properly = e.g. I double click on explorer and it creates another shortcut on the desktop, It can not launch the media center, it has problems with many applications. It gives me an error when launching the media center at the beginning. WHat would be the best thing to do?

Apparently this was a bad memory chip, and it glitched the system. Start by doing a system restore, you may have to go back a couple of restore points to get it back, depending on the depth of the glitch. Th restore should cure it, but if it doesn't, then you will need to do a system repair with the operating system or recovery disc. A repair will definitely fix it, and you won't lose any data by do a repair. Do the restore and let me know.

Ascaso Dream Up is burning my shots. I recently bought it on eBay - first few weeks it made perfect espresso, then started burning each cup. I sent it back, got replacement and same issue.

maybe sometimes you forget to turn off the steam switch which increases the temperature. for the info. this is a thermoblock type of group. also the hot water and steam shares the same wand.

Yj steering column diagramm

I am not sure it is said to be a direct fit.. I got it from ebay.. one with the wrong bottom gear was sent and it would not accept the steering shaft.. so The seller asked me to ship both of them back... after spending 250 plus 20 shipping I spent another 35 to ship both back.. 40 days later still nothing.. after contacting everyone from ebay paypal and credit cards I was finally able to get some more information from the guy and contacted the local authorities... He kept feeding me a line about how his car broke down and he was down on his luck. I finally had enough and just a few days after I gave up on it I was shopping for another coumn when I ran across him selling both of the culumns I had sent back to him... this was enough for ebay to finally take some actuaion and the autorities contacted him... less then a week later I get this column... it looks as I remember the other one looking.. it bots up and fit perfectly.. however the top plug where the two wires go is the problem. The long electrically pin connector is correct. However the two on the top is off... the smaller plug (black) plugs in just fine.. it is the one away fromt steeringwheel on the top.. the one closer to the steering wheel will not plug in.. I took it off and noticed that some of the electrical pins on the cplomn didn't line up with the spade connectors inside the plug. My old jeep was an 81 cj5 non tilt.. I think this is one from a late 80's YJ. I imagine that the difference is shown on the diagrams above but I have never seen anyone not being able to just plug it in and ride. Needless to say I can't return this one I have to make it work somehow.

I bought my daughter a lap top from Tesco for her school work. After just a few weeks the screen stopped working. Tesco sent it away to be looked at but sent it back stating that they couldn't do...

LOL, buy a screen off eBay and replace it yourself. Never deal with Tesco again!!! Go to ebay and but in your laptop's model and find a screen. For example if mine laptop was a HP Pavilion DV8000 I would put in the ebay search "HP Pavilion DV8000 LCD Screen".

Or you can check with your local computer repair shops and get a quote from them on repairing the screen. Check with the guys at: They will fix it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS and most times their price will beat any quote including the shipping charge.

Help with Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio bluetooth!!

The solution to your second problem is to insert the CD Qosmio Player Recovery CD. The buttons on the top do actually work (most of the time) yet it seems for some reason qccasionally it takes the CD refresh to get them working again. The picture and sound are great once you have got them working. So, don't be discouraged it's a great PC (once you have resolved your problems) I have had mine for 3 years w/o problems except for this one just described. Good luck.

One other thing I did have trouble with the Bluetooth, I resolved it by buying a Targus Bluetooth dongle, (disaabling all built in Bluetooth) then everything "paired" and worked easily, (unlike the built-in)

White Screen

Hi everyone, I know many posts on blogs when i was looking to replace my casio lcd and every site i looked at for the replacement lcd was so high priced, and there was no way i would pay how much they wanted so i was going to buy a new camera. Then i found this guy on ebay and he had tons of lcds for sale but none for my camera and all of them were priced good and low. So i sent him a message and he told me to go to his site and i checked it out and he offers tons of lcd cheap one i bought from him only cost me $27 and i installed it myself it was tricky at 1st but you just have to be gentle i guess. anyhow anyone looking for lcds this guy is pretty cool ive got 2 from hims o far.
