  2. I reformatted the laptop after installing a new hard drive in my Sony Vaio and now it isn't letting me use the brightness function keys anymore. The function volume keys still work, it's just the brightness ones that aren't going very well. Is there a software requirement or something I'm missing?
  3. I was just using my laptop to write a thesis paper (think hours of work) and all of a sudden it shut itself off. I was writing in Google Drive so I'm not worried about data loss. Anyhow, it won't boot back up. When I push the power all of the LED indicator lights flicker on like they normally do. I can hear the internals fans start spinning. Everything sounds normal. But the screen stays completely black and I don't hear the usual beep or Windows startup sound that plays when the computer is starting. The laptop has a fairly new SSD so I don't think the HDD is an issue. There are no error messages or beeps of any kind.
  4. I also just got a Chromebook for school but the WiFi signal on it sucks. I don't think it is my college's routers because it picks up my phone and iPad fine. Is there any way to boost the signal strength of the Chromebook so that I can get a stable connection around campus or at least in my apartment?
  5. Today i turned on my computer and noticed that the battery icon in the task bar automatically disappeared. i did check the display settings of the taskbar and it was set to show there. What can be the issue?
  6. I am planning to buy a newlaptop but i am not sure which pne i should go for...any budget is around $600
  7. new hard drive for laptop will not load windows xp disk
  8. So, I have an Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop which are notorious for having overheating problems. I had really big issues last year where my laptop would just shut-off because it was way too hot. From then on I've really looked into the problem. I even opened up my laptop and cleaned out all the dust that was between the fan and heat-sink. Anyways, now my laptop has been fine, and I haven't had any recent issues of it shutting down because of overheating. I was just curious what are acceptable levels of internal temperatures and are there free resources out there that I can measure on my own laptop? Thanks.
  9. I have a laptop I am not using and instead of just selling it and making BARELY any cash (since it's an old laptop) do you think I should start getting into Ubuntu? I've heard a lot of great things about it, but I'm not sure if I should try it and start "exploring it". Let me hear from you, though, do you think it's a good OS?
