I have had my laptop for about 3 years now. It is an Acer TravelMate 2420. About 2 months ago I started to notice a crack forming on the back of the monitor by the left hinge. I was wondering if there is a way to stop the crack from getting bigger without sending it somewhere to get fixed.
I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....
I'm trying to grasp this one... but my mind can not wrap around it, so here goes. I just got off the phone with Dell University sales and talked to the rep. Since the i1720 came out in July I have spec'ed and spec'ed and seen that IT DOES NOT COME WITH OR HAVE OFFERED A 7200RPM HD.
I have a e1705, my dad has one, my girlfriend has one, and my uncle has one... all on my recommendation. I have dabbled/worked in the IT industry since I was 10 and I can't believe that this speed RPM is not offered.
5400RPM existed clear back in 1994.
I just bought my GF a 7200RPM 7k200 200GB Hitachi HD with 16mb of cache for her e1705 from NewEgg.
When we ordered all of our e1705's we intentionally ordered them with the cheapest HD's cause we ordered 7k100 7200RPM 100GB Hitachi's from Froogle searches.
Am I the only one that can't wrap his/her mind around this one....
I bought mine in 2007, thinking I might give it a couple upgrades, since I'm going to be opening it up to clean out its insides and re-do the thermal paste.
I need help upgrading the hard drive. This is my first time upgrading anything, and I need things made specific before proceeding.
The manual says any 2.5 inch SATA would do. I see on newegg that there are 1.5gb/s, and 3.0gb/s variants. Does SATA mean it'll support either? And are there any limits to RPM?
Ram is super expensive nowadays. Just when I was buying the notebook, 4 gb sets would cost $50, now it's double that. Anyway, it makes me want to buy a cheapass laptop around $400 just to take out the bigger hard drive and the ram.
Was wondering if any of the programmers out there could crack the M6300 bios so it would blind flash a M1710. I have a video card here from an M6300 and an M1710 that I would be willing to brick and RMA if it doesnt work.
I currently have a Macbook Pro, from the mid 2007 batch. The frame around the screen started with a hairline crack at the base of the screen on both sides about a year ago and since has developed into full blown crack on both sides. It seems that the rest of the screen is fine, so I don't want to buy a new one. Does anyone have any knowledge about replacing the bezel (not sure what to call it?) around the screen?
I've a problem w/ my Macbook pro 15" Late 2008. I found some crack on my screen.
1. On last Friday. After I went back to my home. I had open my laptop. At first, I had find some scratch on my laptop screen. It's on the bottom right corner of my screen. Then I use my finger w/ a little cloth to clean it. But it became to a little crack on my glass screen. Then I saw something just like a little dent. - I always keep my Macbook pro in to a hardcase( AXIO - Black Hardcase, the one I got it from applestore), then carrying it w/my laptop bag with carefully.
2. Then on Saturday, I went to apple service (retial shop, I had buy my laptop) to claim about a problem on my laptop screen. They took a photo from my laptop and send it to apple. I said that this is not an accident and they agreed that. On my laptop, There is no any scratch outside or beside the point I 've find a crack. They ask me to wait till they get an information from apple service.
3. Today, I 've got an information from apple. They tell that I can't claim what happen on my laptop. Apple does not allow to claim for a problem like this under warranty.But my laptop is not have an any accident cause... They tell me...If I have any problem, I can ask their SPS - Supporting produce service staff for this, they refuse it. Or else waiting to talk to their customer relationship service staff tomorrow....
I found a small U-like crack around the bottom near the AC connector and the hinge are intact with the bottom housing.
I did not notice it was there after 10 days of use. Once I found it, I called Sony Customer Service to discuss about it , and I was connected to Tech Support for Repairing this unit. (I decided not to return it for credit since I already returned 4 Z690s for keyboard lifting issue for two, high-pitched noise, cosmetic damage and I got sick and tired of returning the VGN Z690)
here are some pics for the cosmetic damage (it is small but noticeable) and keyboard. [url]
Once the laptop arrived in the repair center, they gave me an estimate of $161.40 for replacement of bottom housing.
I should have sent it back for repair but I gave the repair center one last chance and tried to save some time on placing new order. I received the laptop on April 20th.
But high-pitched noise started to cry out for my attention... which did not existed before the repair.. I sent it for repair on 22th and it is still being diagnosed....
I have a HP 15-r011dx Notebook PC with windows 8.1 and when on youtube or CNN videos, the speakers carack and pop. The commercials that CNN play prior to the story are fine as is a DVD or my loaded music. I relly do not want to reinstall. I have had the computer 3 weeks and I am not sure if it has been there from the beginning. I have updated everything from HP including BIOS and have tried a different browser and adjusted volume levels. Windows has done updates.

I decided to run CUPID Hardware Moniter and Im getting AMD core temps of 80*C , GPU of 92 ! These are celcious! Like randomly I would hear a wirring sound in my laptop and everything would go soooooooo slowwwww , like huge lag spikes... Thats why I figured if I installed Vista x64 + got 4 gigs of ram it would fix it... but I think my problem is temperature... Besides cleaning out the fans how can I fix this?
I run my laptop 24/7, its my "desktop" It sits on wooden surface so theres no blockage of air flow?
Well my wife and I picked up an Acer 6920G. So far we like it. She wants to use it sometimes at night in bed to play WoW so I was looking for a good cooling pad for it. So what are some good ones out there?
I've been getting this weird, on and off, random, buzzing/almost scraping noise from the fan of my Acer 5672 laptop. It spins really loudly, I'm assuming the ball bearings are going bad or something's wrong. Is there any store or place I can check to buy a replacement? I know it's a Sunon brand fan/heatsink, but I've been searching around endlessly for a place to buy a replacement.
I am using a Wireless lan long range usb adapter from Engeniustech called EUB-362EXT product. I entered the mac address in the firmware of my router and any place in my house I can pick up a wireless signal. This device will pick up a wifi signal and amplify it so all I do is connect the EUB-362EXT unit to a strong antenna and I can pick up a signal in my basement but the router is on my second floor.
I would like to use the same setup on my laptop when I am on the road because the internal wifi of the laptop is weak. I can disable the internal wifi but would like to know how I can create a a wifi network profile in my laptop that will allow me to enter the mac address of the adapter. I am using Windows XP sp2.
my internet stopped working on my laptop so I loaded the Recovery DVD and tried to re-install the windows vista but i get a error saying it failed and click ok to restart . I tried the ALT + f10 thing at the start of the acer screen but nothing happend
My problem is my acer travelmate 4200 screen is now showing only 1024 x 768 (4:3) there are black boder on right side of the screen that doesn't show anything.
The back lighting in that area is normal. my laptop is 15 inch and the native resolution is 1280 x 768 but when i check the Hide mode that monitor doesn't support option it only display 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768 only.
I already update the BIOS and the graphic driver but the problem still remain. I search the internet and found that i problem may be due to epresentation.I update the epresentation and the problem persist.
Once win7 comes out, I wish to upgrade. How can I do this? I want to keep up the back up partition of vista and install 7(I want the backup partition just to be safe.)Would I just hit f10 on the loading screen and click use disks to format and insert the windows 7 cds.
