It's the same old song and dance. I fell in love with technology as a boy. My family like many others didn't have extra cash to just blow on a computer store. Which in my area was VERY expensive. Simple computer jobs could range upwards of $120!!
Our local computer store even charged for windows updates! Yes you read that right, we were charged $40 just for a computer technician to update your computer, and the real kicker is that $40 charge was an add-on charge! Not the price of just updating and nothing else.
Long story short I was forced to choose, either throw out what was now "junk" and move on or adapt and learn like the rest of the world. Technology has always called out to me, so leaving it behind simply wasn't an option for me. I choose to learn. I have never been to schooling for Computer Science, Computer Programming, or any schooling for coding. Everything I know is through LARGE amounts of failing, and thanks to Google and many friendly users on the World Wide Web, I can now code entire websites by hand, build computers from the chassis up, and everything in between.
It's been a long journey with many hours spent staring into a screen with pages of text. Trial and error, and even a few angry moments of smashing a keyboard or two. While I've struggled to get better and better there is still an infinite number of things to learn and with technology always expanding, I too must continue to expand my knowledge.
I don't know everything, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I won't stop until I have researched and learned the answer to your problem. NOTHING is unlearnable if you give it enough time and energy. So pop on in and ask me whatever you need help with! I'd love to solve your puzzles and help a few people along the way!

Responder a: Why is my usb port not recognizing external hard drive?No worries, before you start thinking of having to spend money don't! Often times it is something simple enough so lets just dive in and start troubleshooting. If you have any questions or are unclear about something I say please just ask. So there can be a couple of reasons as to why this happens. (1) Driver Issues (2) Incorrect Drive Format (3) Corrupted Drive (4) USB Port Malfunctioning First and most common is a Driver issue. To best check this head on into your device manager. This can be accessed through a couple ways. Easiest would be to use your search bar on Win 8 / 10 and just search "Device Manager" without quotes. If however you are on Windows 7 or even Win XP still, you can access it by right clicking on "My Computer" or "Computer" and selecting, "Manage". If you are on Win 7 / XP then after right clicking Computer and Selecting Manage, you will need to navigate to "Device Manager" on the left hand side of the new window that pops on when you clicked Manage. Now that you are in the device man...
Responder a: Which part of the phone has to do with SIM functionality?Great question! Let me first answer by saying NO you should NEVER give up. ANYTHING and I do mean ANYTHING can be figured out with enough energy and time. So let's continue. -- It could be either one. Your phone or your sim card. The best way (in my own opinion) to test a sim card is to call your phones carrier using another phone so they can have you run tests. So if you use Verizon call them up, Straight Talk, Sprint, Etc, call them up. They can actually diagnose a lot better than you or I can. In addition you can make the call toll free and do not need to obtain an additional sim card. -- However they may just tell you it is the sim card because your device isn't registering the sim card. In which case as @avanteguarde stated your next step would be to acquire another sim card that you KNOW works. The issue with this is, its more work than making a phone call. -- First you will need to find a SIM card that works with your phone, and carrier. Then you need to have your carrier activate the new SIM card in o...
Responder a: Lid on scanner won't close completely.Thanks for being so patient! So this is going to be pretty simple for you! However it may or may not be a bit pricey. Allow me to explain. Their contact details are below. Right now I can't call, but I believe you can call and have them do the work for you. However this may be a bit pricey as I do not know if they will make you purchase a warranty. If the printer is still pretty new, then you may still have a warranty. But then you are still going to deal with a labor charge and those can be expensive. If you feel comfortable enough to do it on your own, then their website is geared towards finding your part based on part number and buying it. They will ship it and you can repair what you need to. But in the off chance you cannot find your part, or they need to special order it, you may be stuck calling them and paying to have them fix it. As always the choice is yours, I just provide the info! Please do not hesitate to come back and ask anything you need to! Should you choose to fix it yourself and need assi...
Responder a: What is this golden piece?Hi Lauren! The reason you do not have that piece in the replacement part is because you are meant to use the one you currently have. I could not tell you for sure what the part does just from the picture, however it is important and appears to be connected to your main board. I don't believe it is a sticker but in fact a piece of hardware. A lot of handheld devices use near paper thin circuits that literally "stick" on the phone backing or other surfaces. There appears to be writing on the piece, if you could post that or give us a clear picture of it, we may be able to use that to find out exactly what it is and does :) If we take a look at the link below we can see the same piece very clear. Take a look: (1) Example Photo The part in the picture above is a digitizer frame, and it does in fact come with the piece you mention. So I can only assume that the piece in your photo deals with your display and digitizer. It may even be the connection between your digitizer analyzing touch and that piece passing the ...
Responder a: Where to buy battery for TXSo the first thing we need to figure out is if it's actually the battery. To do that, we are going to plug it in and try to turn it on. Does it display anything or try to turn on? Does it tell you to insert a battery before powering on, even though you have it installed? If so then it is indeed your battery, otherwise you should start assuming your battery is perfectly fine as either the motherboard or charger port is faulty and not passing power through to the PDA. To address that issue you will need to either rebuild the PDA yourself starting with the charger port / motherboard your choice. Or take it to a local repair shop who can connect the device to a PC and troubleshoot / repair the device for you. A repair shop will be more expensive, however you will get quality service and most likely a warranty. If you have a soldering kit then it would be cheaper to rebuild yourself. The motherboard doesn't require a solder tool to replace, however if you are looking into replacing just the charger port as that ma...
Responder a: Where can I get a replacement trackpad?Note: Before trying anything else, please make sure you didn't accidentally hit the hotkey to disable your mouse!! I have done it, we all have done it! If no dice then keep moving on. If you are talking about the built in mouse on your laptop that doesn't break. What I mean is the mouse device itself normally doesn't break and you are more likely to rub it through to the motherboard from use than break it. However if you are dead set on replacing it, just buy a used laptop for parts and replace your top case cover as laptops normally build their mice directly into the case of the laptop. So replacing the top cover (case housing surrounding your keyboard and mouse) will replace the built in mouse. Then you can hook it back up to the motherboard. If it still doesn't work, your motherboard is faulty and starting to die. Sometimes motherboards will start losing things like USB Ports, Sound Ports, and other peripheral ports before failing entirely. To fix that just buy a replacement motherboard. Either way your so...
Responder a: Why has Apple betrayed us?"This only does one thing, it allows a back door for a third-party to contact Apple and get access to that device with a bypass code." If they can crack into your back-up account then they can crack into your main account and you are no more secure then with one account. Your email security doesn't become less simply because you have two accounts instead of one. The idea behind this is, should you get locked out for whatever reason from that main account your device is not useless you can still access it through your secondary account. This doesn't make you any less secure than you already are. If they can get into the second they can get into the first and you aren't safe anyway. However you are always more than welcome to join the rest of us on Android and break away from the chains and boundaries of Apple.
Responder a: bricked phone, Can't restore trough softwareThis is pretty tricky. Can phones and other devices be "un-bricked"? Sure it's possible, but you have a bigger problem than whether or not it can or cannot be un-bricked. At this point you have stated that you took it to a professional service and they were unable to recognize the device. Which simply means that when they plugged it into their computers, your device was not recognized. This could have been because they didn't have the correct drivers for your phone and so the computer doesn't know how to talk to your phone. However since they are a business for repairing phones, it's more likely the problem is with your phone. Your task now lies in finding out why it can't be recognized, because until we can get a computer to talk with your phone, it will remain bricked for the rest of your life. The first reason is what you already asked. Hardware. Unless you have some devices for testing Motorola phones, you will need to contact a repair shop just for Motorola phones as they will have the technology and pro...
Responder a: Why is my touch screen unresponsiveA couple of things could have happened. You dropped the device, thus breaking the digitizer which is the part of the device that registers touch, which means to fix it you must replace that part. Simply google your Tablet and "digitizer replacement" after and you can find several sources that will sell it for you and allow you to repair it yourself. Another option is less likely which is the touch never worked at all. In which case it is what is called "defective" and should be covered under warranty provided it hasn't been ages since buying the device. Moving on you could have dropped or hit the device just hard enough to unplug or jar the connector on the digitizer which would stop registering your touch. If no damage has occurred and you never dropped the device, or loaned it to someone who may have dropped it, your best bet is to contact a repair store or the manufacturer themselves. Contacting the manufactures could be more expensive than a repair shop but you will get a new warranty and most of the time...
Responder a: Computer Screen is blackThis is mainly caused by a faulty graphics card. Unfortunately this model laptop as with many other models, has what is called an integrated video card. Meaning your Motherboard and Graphics card are one in the same. What this means is, you must replace the motherboard to replace the graphics card as they are integrated into one another. The good news is, they are REALLY cheap to buy and you can shop around for even lower prices. Just looking on eBay though you can buy one for: $49.99 as of: 4/10/2017 which is much cheaper than other motherboards. NOTE: This answer is based on the fact you stated your PC powers up, fans come on, but display remains black. There are other causes however this is where you should start as it is the most common reason.
