Michael asks…

When I updated my Windows XP with the latest updates, it knocked out all my drivers to my sound and usb ports?

When I added the latest windows updates to my laptop, now my sound and usb drivers aren’t there. It won’t let me update and the drivers won’t install. I’ve even tried reinstalling my windows xp. What’s really going on.

steve answers:

There are 2 ways to solve the problem.

To restore system to a point before updates
Start–> All Programs >> Accessories>>system tools>> system restore.

Choose restore to ealier point and click on date when computer was working good before upgrade.

System should restart ( Normally it takes more time )

NOTE: Above step be undo the updates.
Option 2:-

Go to manufacturer site of your computer. Example. Dell/hp/acer
And download the latest driver disk and run and update of drivers.

Best of luck


Chris asks…

How do you convert Acer Extensa Laptop From Vista to Xp?

I want to change the windows of my acer extensa laptop from vista to xp because my softwares don’t seem to work wit vista properly. Do you know the whole process?

steve answers:

First thing is to find drivers for your laptop that support windows xp. If you can find these your half way there. Burn them to a cd. Acquire a windows xp installation disk and boot from it then follow the instructions to do a fresh install. Then install your drivers

George asks…

What is the best way to correct my wireless issue with my Acer Aspire 4720z?

The laptop is finding the network that I have established, however, it will not connect wirelessly. I know that it’s not an issue with the internet service because it works to connect with an ethernet cable. I believe that the wireless driver may have been updated, so could that be the issue? How can I roll back my driver?

steve answers:

There are a number of things you can try:

1. Switch your wireless from mixed mode wireless encryption (WPA PSK & WPA2 PSK) to simply WPA PSK. The reason for this is some Intel wireless cards don’t like it.

2. If you are using a cordless phone on the 2.4ghz range move as far from your wireless router as you can.

3. Change your wireless channel to 1, 6 or 11 to attempt to avoid wireless interference. There is no point trying every channel as they overlap.

If you really want to roll back your driver the following method will work XP, Vista & Windows 7:

Start –> Right click “My Computer” or “Computer” –> Left click “Manage” –> Computer Management will open –> Click “Device Manager” on right –> On Right click on “+” or arrow beside “Network Adapters” –> Right click your wireless card and left click “Properties” –> Click on “Driver” tab” –> Click on “Roll Back Driver”… If this doesn’t work or the option isn’t there you can always click on uninstall abd then reinstall the correct driver.

Personally I don’t believe it’ll be the driver, I hope this helps.

Sandra asks…

How do you fix the webcam for Acer Aspire one notebook?

my Acer aspire one notebook does not read my built-in webcam everytime I try to make a video or broadcast it cannot read my webcam is… what is the problem… I can’t seem to figure it out
How do you uninstall and reinstall the program?

steve answers:

Try reinstalling, if its available in device manager, if not you may have to search online for the right driver.

Nancy asks…

How do I download the latest driver update for my video card?

I have a game wizard 101 and bascily it wont play because my video card needs an update (Download) I have an Acer Laptop and can you give me steps to how to download the update?
Thanks Much

steve answers:

If you can’t find the right video drivers manually I would recommend just getting a software program that can do it for you. There is a program I use which will find drivers for just about all hardware devices. The best part is it takes a snapshot of your system specifications and matches the right driver to go with it. Perform a free driver scan at:


Also, you can get the driver from their official sites:

Thomas asks…

Is there any netbook with firewire option?

Just wanted to buy a netbook but I want to attach my Sony DV cam with my netbook through firewire and record movies to it…Is there any netbook out there that would have a firewire port?

steve answers:

There is only one Netbook that comes with an ExpressCard slot. That means you can get it with a FireWire ExpressCard adapter and edit your videos on the go.

You’re looking for the original Lenovo IdeaPad S10-1208U Netbook or the S10e, but NOT the S10-2 (they removed ExpressCard from this model). They can run Mac OS 10.6 with a little hacking, too (if that’s your media editing cup of tea). Also, the keyboard is decent, and the screen is matte, so your colours don’t look over-vivid. I would recommend buying a separate mouse if you don’t want to deal with the tiny trackpad, though. Also, if battery life is important to you, try to find one with/get a 6 (or more) cell battery, the default config comes with only a 3-cell, which gets 2.75-3 hours tops while just browsing with the screen turned low.

I believe Lenovo no longer makes these netbooks (only the S10-2), and I didn’t find any other netbooks with similar options, but they’re still in stock and available at Amazon and other retailers for $300 or so.

Donald asks…

What is the best netbook for near £200?

I want an excelent all rounder used for a bit of you tube and videos, music, word processing and internet surfing. Whats the best deal? how much ram and memory do i need? Is the acer aspire one the best?

steve answers:

Have you considered getting a tablet?

The thing is, net books for around that price are normally slow and more frustrating to use.

Betty asks…

I was thinking of selling my netbook on eBay. I will be a first-time seller and have some questions?

1) How much does eBay charge for the sale? I was thinking of starting the bidding at $110 and if I get $110 how much will my rate be?

2) How do you ship to the paypal address? Do you just walk to your local fedex or UPS and say “I want this shipped to so and so?”

3) If my buyer is international (I live in Canada and will be selling to Americans potentially) how do I deal with customs? Is there some form I need to sign? Where do I sign this form?

steve answers:

1. ) I dont know how much ebay will charge you for the sale but if you go into your MY EBAY page and hit the word ACCOUNT there you will find a link to make a 1 time payment, if you go there and over PAY them, you wont have to worry about what it cost because once the auction is won your bill will be paid automatically. Like i over pay them by $20.00, once my over payment goes to $1.00 I over pay them again so I never owe ebay anything.


Go into your ebay account into your MY EBAY page where your sold auction is, and click PRINT SHIPPING LABEL, there in that page after you put in all your information, when you go to the links choose which option to pay and print with, look at the one that has the words in the instructions PAY LATER. The option on the bottom of the other one asking you to use paypal. Then ebay will release up to $15.00 in your paypal account to allow you to print out your label with when you use that option. After your package is delivered a few DAYS later paypal will release your money to spend any way you want to.

3.) it is better for you at this point of your inexperience to not send anything outside CANADA. You need more experience then what you have right now before you go off trying to have some real problems sending outside of your own country.

Mandy asks…

How do I transport video onto my computer?

I have recently got a Panasonic video camera and I don’t know how to put the videos from it onto my computer.
It’s Panasonic HC-V10 video camera and my computer is a toshiba netbook, if that helps.

steve answers:

The Panasonic HC-V10 is a consumer-grade, entry-level, camcorder that records highly compressed AVCHD format MTS/TOD format media files.

Connect the camcorder to the computer with a USB cable. Put the camcorder into Play or PC mode. You have two options:

1) Look in Explorer. If the camcorder appears as an external drive, locate the TOD files and copy them over to the computer. If you need to edit the video, it needs to be converted to a file format the video editor can deal with. HnadBrake and MPEG Streamclip can do that. MovieMaker likes WMV files.

2) Launch the AVCHD-capable video editor. Capture the video.

It is possible neither f these will work for you. You did not tell us what Toshiba netbook you are using, what version Windows you are using or what you want to edit with (assuming you want to edit).

Netbooks are not designed to be video editing workstations – and very compressed AVCHD is extremely computer-resource intensive – Netwboks usually do not have enough horsepower (CPU, RAM, available hard disc or flash memory space) to deal with AVCHD-compressed files. If all you want to do is playback the video and you are able to get the MTS/TOD files onto the computer, try VLC player. It is a lot more robust than many other media players out there. That said, expect problems whether playback or editing AVCHD-compressed video. A netbook is not the right tool for the job.

Carol asks…

How can I use my desk top as an external disc drive to download software i already own?

steve answers:

Copy the install files to a USB drive and install it on the netbook.

Mark asks…

Laptop on the plane?

I would like to use my laptop on the plane but unfortunately after two hours I have no energy left.

Are there adaptors you can plug into the plane earphone’s slot so you can use power with your computer?

If worse comes to worse I guess I would have to buy several extra batteries but no doubt that would be very expensive…

steve answers:

Not only very expensive but..Be AWARE of the newest TSA ruling about carrying batteries on-board luggage. It would seem that, their unique expertise is spinning out of control once more. For example..
They deem batteries to be potentially explosive devices now~
And, have limited the size of the amount that can be carried.
Here’s an:
the TSA has made taking spare batteries for laptops on flights much more difficult. In addition to banning them from checked luggage, the new ruling, which went into effect Jan. 1, limits the size and number of spare batteries you can carry. Coincidentally, Stanford researchers recently announced a way to use silicon nanowires in lithium-ion batteries to extend the battery life tenfold — perfect for those international flights. In a paper published in the December issue of Nature Nanotechnology, the Stanford team describes a way to structure silicon in the batteries as tiny tubes. This makes silicon much more resistant to the expansion and contraction that occurs during charging and discharging, one of the limiting factors in battery life. Most importantly, the new approach doesn’t require significant changes to battery manufacturing processes. As a result, it may pave the way for new applications and reduce the amount of a device that’s devoted to power storage. Of course, with 10 times the power stored in a battery, the TSA may publish new rules.
Just how this new ruling will affect carry on, I have yet tested.
Just so you are aware…
Good Luck~!

Sharon asks…

Laptop Query?

Hey, I just got a new laptop a month ago. I want to access Internet in it. We do not have Internet connection at home. Is there any way I can access it? I am not much of a computer freak. I know that my sister access it from my laptop when I’m not home. But she just won’t tell me how she does it. Somebody help me.
Can you please tell me how does she do it with CD or flash ? How is it possible ?

steve answers:

I’m not in the USA but in many couturiers you can buy prepaid Internet cards, they have the dial up number and a unique login and password, they are in denominations so you would be able to buy 5$, 10$, 20$ etc… Worth of connection time. They are a practical way of periodically getting Internet access

CD or Flash? Maybe yur sister has an internet connecionand her ISP gave her the configuration on CD?

Steven asks…

laptop battery proper use?

I just got a new hp laptop. I want to make sure I get the most out of my battery. Whats the best way i can do that? Should I take my battery out of the laptop if it is charged and I have it plugged in?

steve answers:

Hope this helps. I came upon this somwhere on the web but i forgot where exactly.

Battery Care and Maintenance

What is the difference between NiCad, NiMH and Lithium Ion batteries?

Batteries in portable consumer devices such as a laptop, camcorder, cellular phone, etc., are typically made using either Nickel Cadmium (NiCad), Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) or Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery cell chemistry. Each type of rechargeable battery chemistry has its own unique characteristics:

NiCad and NiMH:

The main difference between the two is that NiMH battery (the newer technology of the two) offers higher energy density than NiCads. In other words, the capacity of a NiMH is approximately twice the capacity of its NiCad counterpart. What this means is for you is increased run-time from the battery with no additional bulk or weight. NiMH also offers another major advantage: NiCad batteries tend to suffer from what is called the “memory effect”. NiMH batteries are less prone to develop this problem and thus require less maintenance and conditioning. NiMH batteries are also environmentally friendlier than NiCad batteries since they do not contain heavy metals (which present serious landfill problems). Note: Not all devices can accept both NiCad or NiMH batteries.

Lithium Ion

Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) has become the new standard for portable power in consumer devices. Li-Ion batteries produce the same energy as NiMH battery but weighs approximately 20%35% less. This is can make a noticeable difference in devices such as cellular phones, camcorders or notebook computers where the battery makes up a significant portion of the total weight. Another reason Li-Ion batteries have become so popular is that they do not suffer from the “memory effect” at all. They are also environmentally friendly because they don’t contain toxic materials such as Cadmium or Mercury.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Battery Use

Battery Do’s:

Fully charge/discharge battery up to 4 cycles before achieving full capacity of a new battery

Fully discharge and then fully charge the battery every two to three weeks for battery conditions.

Run the device under the battery’s power until it shuts down or until you get a low battery warning. Then recharge the battery as instructed in the user’s manual.

Remove from the device and stored in a cool, dry, clean place if the battery will not be in use for a month or longer,

Recharge the battery after a storage period

Ensure maximum performance of the battery by optimizing the device’s power management features. Refer to the manual for further instructions.

Battery Don’ts:

Do not short-circuit. A short-circuit may cause severe damage to the battery.

Do not drop, hit or otherwise abuse the battery as this may result in the exposure of the cell contents, which are corrosive.

Do not expose the battery to moisture or rain.

Keep battery away from fire or other sources of extreme heat. Do not incinerate. Exposure of battery to extreme heat may result in an explosion.

My new battery isn’t charging. Is it defective?

Usually NO. New batteries come in a discharged condition and must be fully charged before use. It is recommended that you fully charge and discharge the new battery two to four times to allow it to reach its maximum rated capacity

It is generally recommend an overnight charge (approximately twelve hours). It is normal for a battery to become warm to the touch during charging and discharging.

When charging the battery for the first time, the device may indicate that charging is complete after just 10 or 15 minutes. This is a normal with rechargeable batteries. New batteries are hard for the device to charge; they have never been fully charged and not “broken in.” Sometimes the device’s charger will stop charging a new battery before it is fully charged. If this happens, remove the battery from the device and then reinsert it. The charge cycle should begin again. This may happen several times during the first battery charge. Don’t worry; it’s perfectly normal.

How can I maximize the performance of my battery?

There are several steps you can take to help you get maximum performance from your battery:

Prevent the Memory Effect – Keep the battery healthy by fully charging and then fully discharging it at least once every two to three weeks. Exceptions to the rule are Li-Ion batteries which do not suffer from the memory effect.

Keep the Batteries Clean – It’s a good idea to clean dirty battery contacts with a cotton swab and alcohol. This helps maintain a good connection between the battery and the portable device.

Exercise the Battery – Do not leave the battery dormant for long periods of time. We recommend using the battery at least once every two to three weeks. If a battery has not been used for a long period of time, perform the new battery procedure described above.

Battery Storage – If you don’t plan on using the battery for a month or more, store it in a clean, dry, cool place away from heat and metal objects. NiCad, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries will self-discharge during storage; remember to recharge the batteries before use.

Sealed Lead Acid – (SLA) batteries must be kept at full charge during storage. This is usually achieved by using special trickle chargers. If you do not have a trickle charger, do not attempt to store SLA batteries for more than three months.

George asks…

What is the purpose of the 9/10 of a cent after the gas price?

steve answers:

It’s not an uncommon sales trick; gas prices are one example out of many that end in 9. Nearly all retail items these days price their products in the same way. It’s easy to find small items, such as clothing, books, or groceries with prices that end in 99 cents, and prices for many big-ticket items, such as cars or computers, end in 99 dollars.

The gasoline industry has taken this tactic one step further and tacked on an extra 9/10ths of a cent to the price per gallon.

There is quite a bit of folklore trying to explain this phenomenon. There are stories about retail price wars, penny newspapers, and even gas taxes. Some believe that because some taxes levied on the gas companies are 9/10ths of a percent of their volume of sales, they have passed that on to the consumer by increasing gas prices to 9/10ths of a cent.

In the end, though any or all of these things may have happened, many retail and academic studies have found that when prices end in 9, consumers will spend more money. It’s a bit embarrassing to find out that most consumers are far more likely to purchase an item priced at $9.99 than the same item priced at $10.00, and there is little change in sales volume when the price changes from $5.00 to $5.99.

Plus, it makes for great marketing. Ads for the best laptop under $600 (sold for $599.99), or the best car under $10,000 (sold for $9,999), actually do fool consumers into thinking they’re spending less money. Especially in these days of high gas prices, you could say that the gas companies are just doing what capitalism demands of them.
What is 9/10 of a cent worth?

So the gas companies take an extra 9/10 of a cent for every gallon of gas we buy–what is that actually worth?

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), “prime suppliers” of “motor gasoline” reported sales of 372,833.5 thousand barrels sold in February 2007. Each barrel represents 42 gallons, and to determine the value of 9/10 of a cent for each gallon, we did the following calculation:

372,834 x 1000 x 42 x .009 = $140,931,063

That means that in February 2007, gas companies collected an extra $141 million USD because of their unique pricing practices. Assuming Februrary is a rough average for the year, that’s $1.7 billion USD in additional revenue!
What if gas prices were carried out to the 100th of a cent?

What if instead of 9/10 of a cent, or .009 of a dollar, gas prices could end in 99/100ths of a cent, or .0099 of a dollar. Statistically, the academics tell us that we wouldn’t even flinch at such a miniscule increase in gas prices. Consumers are always looking at the big numbers on the left, so when we look at gas prices it’s the $2 or $3 per gallon that we see, not the small change. This small increase spread across the masses can yield huge profits for the gas companies.

Ceo of Exxon, Lee Raymond Using the same data provided by the EIA, and altering the formula to value our assertion so that each gallon is worth $.0009 dollars more than they already collected, we end up with the following calculation:

372,834 x 1000 x 42 x .0009 = $14,093,106

Again, assuming that February 2007 gas sales represent an average of monthly gas sales for the year, then the annual gain for gas companies would be somewhere near $170 million USD, collectively. If this tweak was applied globally, the total would be even more staggering.

There might be some costs associated with changing the signs, and it is possible that some drivers would reduce consumption out of protest; it seems that these would be negligible when compared to the gains that the gas companies would reap.

The EIA also tells us that the average US consumer uses 500 gallons of auto fuel each year. If the gas companies were to change gas prices to end in 99/100ths of a dollar, the cost to the consumer would be $0.45 USD per year, on average. It may not sound like much, but that’s what got us into paying 9/10 of a cent to begin with.

Ken asks…

Which laptop is best for gaming?

My laptop is getting old now, I’ve had it for five years now I think. I’m not sure if its the old age or the processor that affects gaming. So I need your help, ya’ll laptop experts. I’ve been viewing a few laptops on amazon and I want to know which one out of these all would be the best for gaming. Oh and by the way I wont be installing like 10 games or anything, its mainly feral heart and arokai when its released and maybe one or two others. Oh and when answering please don’t just randomly say which one out of the ones I list is best, I want a reason too, otherwise its a bit harder to trust someone when they just say something random right? Also you can suggest other laptops, but not if the cost is above £500. Ps: it isn’t purely for gaming, its for homework and other stuff online too, I just want a laptop that responds well to 3d games.

I’m kinda leaning to the Asus because it looks pretty. We have 6 laptops in the house (including my old one and an even older one thats totally broken) and all I know are dark colours like black, navy and crimson thats why I quite like the white Asus, it would be way unique in the house LOL. But ignore me, your the experts and its about the best laptop on the inside, not how it looks xD.

steve answers:

Those are all bad choices.

For computer gaming, 75% of your performance is determined by your graphics card. So the graphics card is the single most important component for any gaming computer, laptop or desktop. It’s the graphics card model that determines whether you get 6fps in games or 60 fps.

With desktop computers you can upgrade the graphics card- just pop a better one into the PCI-E x16 slot and you can easily triple or quadruple your performance over the factory integrated graphics. Sometimes installing a better card requires upgrading the computer’s power supply too, since higher-end cards require more power.

But upgrading the graphics later isn’t an option with laptops. The built-in graphics are permanent, so it’s critical to choose a laptop with the best graphics card you can find that fits your budget.

Here’s a list all laptop graphics adapters ranked by performance. For casual gaming you’d want a graphics card that’s at least class 3 (the brown/amber group).


On a tight budget you’ll want to check out laptops which have AMD’s A-series processors (like the A4, A6 and A8). The A-series processors have MUCH better built-in graphics (APU) than Intel’s processors, although the CPUs are otherwise slower. So the A-series processors are better all-around choices because everyday tasks like web browsing, e-mail, word processing etc don’t require much CPU power- any dual-core or higher processor can handle that smoothly. But gaming REQUIRES a decent graphics adapter. If you wouldn’t be gaming at all, then the HP G6 with the dual-core B960 would be the best choice.

I recommend one of these:

How much would a HPI-Racing Dealers Handbook go for on Ebay?

HPI-Racing dealers Handbook in excellent condition. Wanting to sell but cant find a price anywhere.

steve answers:

Have you checked Amazon and eBay both? If not, that should be your first task. See what those books are — and aren’t — selling for there. Price yours just a little under so it will sell.

George asks…

How long does it take for and HPI check to update finance?

Hi how long does it take for an HPI Check to update the finance on your car.

I purchased a car three weeks ago with finance on it, but when my credit report updated it said “unsecured loan” so it got me thinking…

Did an HPI check last night and it says the following

Last Keeper ChangeThe last recorded change of keeper occurred on 28 Nov 2013

We have no record of this registration having outstanding finance.

Will this be an up to date record or will I actually have nothing tied to this car?

Also.. I’m a little confused, somebody reversed into my car and it needs the bumper changing (through the insurance) will this now be a CAT D?

Thanks joe
Thanks on the category advice.

My car had no finance on it when I bought it, I took our a finance agreement when I bought the car. But as it says unsecured loan on my experian credit report and its not on the HPI check yet, I wondered if it hadn’t been updated or if for some reason its not secured to my loan (As the HPI check was updated to show the keeper change when I bought it)

steve answers:

A Cat D is a category of insurance write-off, as are Cat A,B and C, but all of them only apply if the car is written off by an insurance company, so no, yours will not be a Cat anything.

Your question is unclear on whether you bought a car that had previously been financed which has now been cleared, or whether you took out a finance agreement when you bought the car. If it’s the former, then that finance has now been cleared. If it’s the latter, then it hasn’t been recorded yet.

How do I get my integral webcam working again?

When I upgraded the operating software on my Compaq 615 laptop to Windows 7, I “lost” the integral webcam. Please can someone tell me how I can get it working again? Thanks

Sandra asks…

How can i improve my gaming performance in an acer aspire model number zg5 with ram 1gb?

processor: intel atom (R)cpu N270(TM) @1.70Ghz
is there any way to improve its graphic performance or any graphic driver that would support it the best fo speed?

steve answers:

Let me tell you one thing. Your pc won’t run minecraft (lowest cpu or gpu need game) over 10 fps…..
It probably has an integrated video memory, so the only way to improve your performance is to upgrade your ram to 2 gb, and that’s it. But it’s won’t help that much, and you will still lag like hell.

George asks…

Whats the best OS for Acer Aspire one zg5 ?

My Acer had windows xp but the wireless wastn working and it was running really slow. I would like to know where i can get an iso img i can make a bootable usb to format it I need this for before xmas please respond asap thanks in advance.

steve answers:

Why not just buy Windows 7, it works great on Acer netbooks.

LINUX on these netbooks tend to make the USB mal function.

If you want something super simple, cheap and gets the job done try

Mandriva InstantOn


If not you can try LINUX MINT 12 ( newer versions exist )


Instructions on USB bootable drive here


David asks…

how can i figure out if my laptop is windows 7 compatible?

its a laptop in the acer aspire series and the model number is: ZG5

steve answers:

I’m reasonable sure that it would run Windows 7, however, I think that you’d be much happier sticking with XP Pro SP3. Windows 7 is a great OS, but it really likes 2 GB or more of RAM and you can’t even upgrade your RAM past 1.5 GB. XP will be faster and run smoother…


Carol asks…

Why does Skype keep shutting down my laptop?

What do I need to download so that the entire computer won’t shut down during a skype call. It does this every time not even 5 secs during a call. I have an ACER ASPIRE ONE Model:ZG5 (mini laptop)

steve answers:

First do not use any remote access software to let someone check your puter, very bad thing to do.

You might have a driver problem. Make sure all your drivers are current. Yo have al the Windows updates installed. Make sure that you have the current version of Skpe.

Just in case make sure the fans and vents are clean and clear. Get a couple cans of compressed air and blow out the vents and fans. You can find some good video on YouTube on how to keep a laptop clean.

Lisa asks…

Acer Aspire ZG5 not turning on?

well my acer aspire zg5 will not turn on. the yellow charging led comes on when plugs in and the power led turns on when i turn it on. the led just flickers off. im not sure if its a mobo issue. any suggestions? any help is appreciated. thanks

steve answers:

Eventually you might need to fdisk, reformat your acer aspire zg5 laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS. Before going that route, try following simple fixes to see if the problem goes away.

Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your acer aspire zg5 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the laptop. This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your acer aspire zg5 laptop on.

Boot in “safe mode”. As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you’d like to start in safe mode. Highlight “safe mode” and press enter. See if your acer aspire zg5 laptop works normal.

If it runs normal now, do the following maintenance and tune up,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program



Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your acer aspire zg5 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your laptop power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Acer aspire zg5 laptop battery charger has its own limited lifespan and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like topmic.com

Sandy asks…

Does anyone have a Sony VAIO laptop?

I was planning on buying a Sony VAIO laptop. Does anyone recomend Sony? Does anyone recomend the Sony VAIO VGNNR160ES from the NR series?

Thank you very much!

steve answers:

Yes, definitely get a Sony Vaio.

They beat Macs by a long end, and even Apple has copied some of the Vaios keen qualities, like the keyboard, and integrated webcam.

I don’t know much about the NR series, but I heard all Sony Vaios are great. I use a FZ and it’s awesome. Several of my other friends use other Sony laptops, and there’s been no problem.

BE AWARE though, Sony likes to bundle a LOT of junkware with their laptops for some reason. Just one minor flaw.

It only take about 10 minutes or less to find them, and delete them off though. By putting junkware, Sony is making the laptops more affordable when they’re paid by other companies to do that. So it’s a good thing.

So definitely get a Sony Vaio.


Paul asks…

HP Pavilion G6 or a Sony VAIO?

I recently bought an hp pavilion g6 but I’ve been having some buyer’s remorse over the sony vaio. The vaio is nicer and sleeker in my opinion and it comes in more colours and it apparently has a faster processor but I’ve heard that the hp pavilion lasts longer. So now I’m having some mixed feelings and I don’t know if I should go ahead and return the hp for a pretty pink sony vaio? Please help!
The reason I chose the HP over the Sony at first was because the HP was $70 cheaper and it has a 750 gb hard drive compared to the 500 gb for the Sony. They both have the intel core i3 inside and the hp is 0.1 inches bigger. So there isn’t a huge difference with how they work but it seems as if Sony is a more popular brand and it also seems nicer. So now I can’t make up my mind!

steve answers:

Personally, I like sony vaio much better. Even though I own nothing but HPs now, if I could afford a sony again, I would buy that brand. About 12 years ago, I bought a sony vaio home computer. It was the first computer my family & i have ever owned. We really beat that thing, it lasted 10 years. I just had to buy new home computer 2 years ago..

Sony is my favorite brand. But, I mean, how come you chose the hp? Price difference? If it isn’t a huge price difference, i’d go back & get the sony, especially if they have it in pink!

Sandra asks…

Sony Vaio laptop questions?

Im contemplating buying a 14 inch sony vaio laptop, and i need something input on people who use or have used them to push me to a decision. Just say any bad things or any good things you’ve appreciated about them, thanks.

steve answers:

I have a sony vaio cr-520e/r, this a very good laptop, i get about 3hours battery life on normal use and 2hours on high usage…
The lcd screens are very good, bright display and colors…
No problems uptill now, been using it for 1 and a half years…
Touch pad is very easy to use (not sticky)…
Sony has a built in vaio care function, with this function you can control your battery charging, this function allows you to stop battery charging when it reaches 80% and this ensures a long battery life…
My laptop has a 14.1″ screen, the resolution is 1280×800, its a reasonable size, because when you watch movies the laptop is very close to you so you dont have problems watching them, on the other hand a smaller screen means less weight and battery usage…
Weight matters a lot and when the screen is small, the weight is reduced and size as well which makes the laptop more handy…
So i’d suggest that you go for a 14″ vaio with your eyes closed!!!

Nancy asks…

Sony Vaio, Yes or No?

So i’m getting a laptop for my birthday. I thought that a white sony vaio looks nice, and my friend has a vaio and she said they’re really good.
I really like it because I think white laptops look really nice.
I don’t want a macbook, those are way to expensive.
If you have a vaio, are they good enough for a grade 9 student? I’m not looking for anything fancy or expensive.

steve answers:

Sony Vaio is good but price is very High In that range You can get Better laptop

this product and it performs really well I would definitely suggest

Toshiba Satellite A505-S6030 TruBrite 16.0-Inch Laptop (Black/Silver)
*2.8GHz Intel Core i7-720QM Processor
*4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM Memory
*500GB Serial ATA Hard Disk Drive (5400RPM); DVD SuperMulti Drive with Labelflash
*16″ CCFL (16:9) 1366×768 Display; NVIDIA GeForce 310M Graphics
*Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit


Also check out at Ebay there are really good deals going

Richard asks…

Would you recommend Sony Vaio laptops?

Do you think they’re good? I’m thinking of getting Sony Vaio F series, it looks amazing!

steve answers:

The Sony Vaio F series is really good. The display just so sharp! I never had have this higher class laptop before, it’s just feels so great to own this one laptop!! Keyboard, body, graphic, and etc.. Wow oh nice! I never get trouble with the mouse pad what so ever but it could be better if the pad has the scroll bar. All in all this is a very good price for what this Sony laptop has to provide!

I got mines at a discount and the laptop has been a money saver for its performance…

Linda asks…

Do you think Pink Slime Burgers is a good name for a restaurant?

It’s honest and folks will know what they get. I also want to have “Sugary Drinks” on the menu and “Full Fat Fries”. I have a few names for my special burgers too: “Artery Clogger”, “Ammonia Residue Baconburger”, “Obesityburger”. I will serve the “Diabetes Express” double milk shakes too.

steve answers:

No …

Mandy asks…

When will people begin suffering from pink slime withdrawals?

Now that almost everyone has stopped eating hamburgers?
I thought it was an over reaction by the media at the beginning & now there are people in the food industry that are out of work. Also consider that the processed “pink slime” is probably no different than Spam which so many of us love.
I thought it was an over reaction by the media at the beginning & now there are people in the food industry that are out of work. Also consider that the processed “pink slime” is probably no different than Spam which so many of us love.

steve answers:

We’ve been safely eating it for years and we can thank the media once again for blowing something way out of proportion with scare their scare tactics. I’m sure the people who have just lost their jobs die to the reports are thankful the talking heads have saved us again!

Jenny asks…

Will you still continue to eat ground beef with the pink slime?

As for me, I really have no choice since I am a minimum wage worker and beef with filler is cheaper than pure ground beef and around here, chicken and pork are just as expensive as ground beef. And no, I’m not going vegetarian since vegetables are pretty expensive too. And I won’t live on beans, potatoes, and rice for the rest of my life.

steve answers:

It’s never bothered us so far, so we’ll keep buying it since it’s the cheapest. Or at least we only buy the cheapest ground beef since we need the fats and it’s economical. I guess it’s just no big deal, it’s not like an ecoli scare.

Lisa asks…

Is there anything actually dangerous about Pink Slime?

is there any evidence that this is actually dangerous, or is it just public speculation?

steve answers:

Not really. “pink slime” is essentially liquid you get when you wash out the meat residue from a grinder with disinfectant (A weak ammonia solution). It’s not toxic, just kind of gross looking, and isn’t particularly harmful.

Personally, if I had an issue with “pink slime,” it’s that the practice “waters down” the beef, so I’m paying more for less. You’re paying more per pound of actual meat, since a bigger portion of the weight is from added water (the weak ammonia solution).

Donald asks…

If Romney wins will we have to eat more pink slime?

@ Billy Bob; If that’s all it is then why not make all the beef that way? Oh that’s right, it’s just the beef byproducts you would not normally eat. Have a glass of ammonia while you’re at it. You’ll find some in yourPiss because your body doesn’t want it.

steve answers:

Probably. He probably have stock on it. We have been eating it for a while. Unfortunately, they do not understand that it may be the reason why obesity is rampant in the US. It is empty calories.

What bothers me is that they sold it to me as Ground Beef. It is a fraudulent practice.

Joseph asks…

What drawing tablet is good for beginners?

I enjoy taking photos and making photo-manipulations with photoshop, I’ve been thinking about getting a drawing tablet . Which it best for beginners? I’d one in the low $200 USD price range. I also, move around a lot, so I use a laptop and don’t use a desk. Therefore, I’d need drawing tablet that doesn’t need to lay flat.

steve answers:

I guess you can buy a tablet from Wacom’s bamboo range. Cheapest one is the Wacom Bamboo pen which will cost $69 and the best one in this range is Wacom Bamboo fun which has a medium size tablet and also both pen and touch features. It will cost you $199.


Since your budget is $200 I think you can go for Wacom Bamboo fun pen tablet. Specially it’s better for photo editing because it has a bigger tablet which means bigger screen area.

Nancy asks…

How well does a Wacom Bamboo tablet work?

I am looking into purchasing a Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch tablet, but before I do so I was wondering if it was really worth it.

steve answers:

The bamboo is really good choice for starter, but the pen and touch model may not really functional if you use with a large monitor. I would rather go with Bamboo Fun which is the medium size instead.
