replacing a hard drive is a lot cheaper then a computer I know this because I work on computers for a living. By the way if you have not done a backup of your data and the hard drive you have now is completely dead as it won't run then you have lost your data. when you by a new hard drive they don't have Windows or any information to make your computer run, so you will need a windows Operating system disc to reinstall Windows on the new hard drive.

If you have the disk or driver for keyboard then reload it.
If not then use the mouse and click on the Start button, use the mouse's right button on Computer (My Computer). Select Manage. When the Computer Management console appears, Select Device Manager. Expand the Keyboard Section. Right Click on your computer name and select Scan for hardware changes.
If this fails to reload the driver then right click on the keyboard item that says Unknown and select Update Driver Software.

There is no master reset button for a laptop. You can use your recovery feature (if available) or use the disk that came with the laptop to reinstall the software. Either option will give you a fresh start.

If this is a newer type hard drive the layout configurations are going to be completely different and will not work in the older laptops. Go to www.ebay.com and type: your make and model and refine search to hard drive.

If the hard disk drive is running , that means the laptop is on and the lcd has been damaged. get your lcd replaced to fix the problem. if that is not the cause, try reformatting.

A lot of factors needs to be considered. First, make sure the audio is not on mute. Second, make sure the audio device driver is up to date. Third, the audio device might be defective.

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

Unfortunately, I would either have to be in the chat mode or on the telephone with you to fully analyze your problem and provide a coherent answer. But don't despair because there is a little FREE program that may solve your problem.

It happens periodically that our computer shuts down, restarts, hibernates or some other weird thing when we really don't want it to. I'm going to pass on to you a FREE and hard to believe program from Microsoft! I have no idea why this little program hasn't been advertised but then I don't own their stock.

Just click on the following link and your problem should be solved: Download Microsoft's Fixit

I don't know your skill level so my suggestion is that you utilize the automatic function of Fixit.

Be a hero and fix your friends' computers; just don't tell them how you did it! That will be our little secret.

All the best,

No, you can't upgrade graphics hardware on a laptop. It's integrated on the motherboard. There isn't room in a laptop case for expansion slots like you have in desktop, so you can't change what's there. All you can do in a laptop computer is make sure you have the most up-to-date graphics drivers, which can be downloaded from the manufacturer's support site.

You can find a good step by step for finding the battery at the following site:


You should be able to take the bottom cover off after Step 3, which should expose the CMOS(internal) battery. If you can't see it after Step 3, you will have to keep following the steps until the battery is exposed.

Use something thin and sharp to pop the battery out of its socket, and be sure not to drop it on your motherboard.
