Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I plan on buying a used toshiba laptop series A135 but the current owner says the screen jumps around. is it worth fixing and can it be fixed. he said it may be a connectivity problem


Answers :

It may be worth fixing. It could be something as simple as the ribbon cable connecting the laptop motherboard with the panel being loose. If it is not that, then it is probably something with the LCD controller circuitry and would be very difficult to repair

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
