Title: i won't be around as much.......
Post by: DFUSIONITE on November 02, 2010, 08:49:43 AM
because my pc has died and i don't know whats wrong with it and can't afford to get it fixed at the moment, i am on fizz' netbook right now but the keys are too small for my fat fingers and i'm not used to it so it's taking an age to do or check anything online therefore i probably won't be on the forums as much until after xmas when i can hopefully get my desktop sorted out. anyway just wanted to let you all know i haven't deserted you, see you all on live.  :)

First, what kind of problems are you experiencing with your computer?  Symptoms?



Second, if you have a USB Keyboard, you should be able to plug it into Fizz's netbook and use that for your fat fingers.   :)

my pc won't switch on at all, we have tried changing the kettle lead and the fuse but to no avail. and my keyboard isn't usb (i dont think), if it is usb i will give it a go, but it's still hard on such a small screen

If it's not turning on at all, my first suspicion would be the power supply.  If your computer is over 3 years old, you're better off just buying a new one.

Also, if Fizz's netbook has a VGA output, you can connect it to your current PC monitor and juse use the netbook as a desktop.

Most likely be your PSU if theres no power at all, PSU are fairly cheap and extremely easy to fit.

My pc wouldn't turn on and this is what i was told to do by the manufacturers.

 Unplug everything from the pc, then hold down the power on button for 30 sec then reattach everything and turn on worked a treat, prob not the same fault but worth a shot anyway cheaper than buying new parts.

cheers hunni, im getting pretty good with technical stuff, diy,ect, total roles reversal in our house, i go to work, fix stuff, an dave cleans, cooks,and general household, i dont think he even knows where the tool box is !!!!
Title: Re: i won't be around as much.......
Post by: dfusioness on November 19, 2010, 11:10:20 PM
by the way a big thanx to you all for trying to help and offering advice but especially to u maibs, couldnt have done it without you, only thing is good job i didnt need the instructions- a little sketchy,alls i did in the end was lined the units side by side, and swapped a broken wire for the new one,so as i unattached the old one i put the new one in, this way was easier even though the colours of wires were slightly different, the good thing is the wires will only go in where they were supposed to, they only fit one way so it wasnt really that hard doing it that way, if anyone needs to do this i would recommend doing it that way, from start to finish including taking the casing off, then back on-which incidentally was the hardest bit!!!, it took me 40 minutes, i would be really confident doing this again-piece of cake xx
