Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
How does FixYa work?
\015 You responded to my initial post asking for more detail and/or photos, so i responded by adding a comment.\015\012Now I don't know whether you've seen my response and can't help, or whether you're waiting for it to appear again as a new question/request\015
Fixya is not set up to easily find followup responses. I finally located yours. I have not yet found a replacement part for you. The numbers on the chuip seem to be manufacturer specific. The regulator in questions is most likely a gneric one, but has been re-screened to show only the new number. I have a few other avenues to check, so stay tuned.

My Samsung 943N LCD monitor will work for 1 second and then goes black. When I choose the extended desktop option, for example, it will flash my desktop on the monitor for a second and then go black. I have 2 cords that I have tried this with and it happens with both...and I have 2 computers I have tried it with and it hasn't worked with either...so it definitely appears to be a monitor issue. Because it works for a second I am really confused with what it could be (it's not the graphic card obv

Christerfred, I would think that if it TURNED OFF all by itself, and no matter how many times you push the on/off switch it remains in the OFF state, I certainly think it's BROKE. In fact I think that the "switch-mode-power-supply" may be in permanen ... Hannspree 22" widescreen LCD Flat Panel HD Monitor

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 931c monitor (2.5 yrs old). Sporadically during the last month, I'd lose the screen image and get vertical stripes on the display. I'd turn the monitor power button off and on and the screen image would return OK. This morning, however, upon first use, I get no image on the monitor at all....just a white screen. I switched it with a second computer with the same results (the computers both work with an alternate monitor). Also, when disconnected to the computer, there

I have a friend with a Compaq Evo N60c laptop. He has asked me to see if i can get it working as there seems to be no life in it.

(though not sure if there is enough power i'll have that checked today) Can anyone help move us on a little further with this or is this a common
