Top 10 PC Repair Shops in Nevada 

In order to become a good laptop repair service personnel, or if you want to repair your own laptop, you're going to need to know the common problems that you'll encounter. The problems can range from the power source, to the internal hardware.

1. Taking It Apart

Taking the laptop apart can become a major problem to you if you want to fix the internal hardware. This is the first thing that you need to know. If you don't know how to do it, Google it, because if you do it wrong, you might end up damaging the laptop.

Different brand will require a different way to take it apart.

2. Power source

The power source can also become a common problem. Again, you're going to need to take it apart to fix this. Sometimes, the adapter or the power jack might become the cause of the problem.

3. Overheating

Fan malfunction or unsuitable working environment (hot environment, no air flow, etc) can become the reasons why your laptop overheated. An overheat computer can shut itself down. So, you're going to need to ensure the fan is working and you have the suitable working environment. If it keeps overheating, I would suggest you to buy an external cooling fan.

4. Hard drive malfunction

Hard drive can become malfunction if it experiences constant physical and movement shock. However, after the creation of the solid state technology, this problem has been reduced significantly and fewer people now experience this.

5. Cracked Screen

Due to the nature of the laptop mobility, it faces a major screen problem where people sometimes can cause the screen to crack due to the reasons such as unsuitable storage bag. In order to avoid this, store your laptop in a suitable bag and never put any heavy stuff on top of it.

6. Finding The Parts

Let's say for example you have a hard drive failure. Yours is a SATA hard drive. But because you don't know what the hardware is and where to find it, you end up buying a different hard drive. It might delay your repair job. Check your local Yellow Pages or the Internet to ensure that you're aware of the shops.

7. Water Damaged Laptop

Drinking while using the laptop can cause spill to your keyboard or the surrounding areas. This will cause corrosion to your internal hardware and you need to have access to the internal hardware in order to fix it. Therefore, it is advisable not to drink or eat anything when operating the computer.

These 7 common laptop repair problems are the problems that you need to be aware of. By knowing these, it'll be easier for you to prepare yourself and to repair laptop.

DIY Laptop Repair - Tips and Advice

The FCC standard for HDTV broadcast is having a huge impact. The amount of information to be digested can be intimidating, even for the professional. The old hardware does not become obsolete, but it will require a tuner to convert from the new signal if you get your signal from a VHF/UHF antenna. If you have cable or satellite TV, this will be taken care of by the service provider.

However, this might be a good time to upgrade your hardware. The new standard offers a much better picture. In the current world of digital projectors, LCD, LCOS, Plasma, and DLP are the four different kinds of televisions that dominate the HDTV market. Each has unique advantages over the other. Plasma and some of the LCD screens can be mounted on the wall, although surveys find that few people do mount them on the wall. DLP and LCOS and some of the LCD units are both projector technologies. Rear projector units are usually the most cost-effective. The size of some systems is now less than 12 inches in depth.

o Video quality on the best projectors now surpasses that available in a conventional commercial movie theater.

SYSTEM TYPES:

o Traditional TV: also called direct view, has the images displayed on a picture tube (Cathode Ray Tube).
  • LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) and Plasma TV can also be direct view. The LCD and Plasma TV systems are the "flat-panel" units.
    o Rear Projection TV (RPTV): uses a combination of mirrors and lenses to project the image from behind onto the viewing screen. This enables the displayed picture to be significantly larger, up to 70 inches or more. This technique usually offers the best value (picture size vs. cost).
    o Front Projection TV (FPTV): this is like a movie theater. The image is projected forward, to an external screen. But like a movie theater, a very dark room is required because the screen will reflect any light in the room. This technique is usually more expensive than rear-projection, but the footprint (the area consumed by the equipment) of the system is smaller.
  • DISPLAY TECHNIQUES:

    CRT (Cathode Ray Tube):

    The established standard for television displays; good value, picture quality. The maximum size of the screen is smaller with the technique. The technology is still a good choice where a smaller picture is desired, and bulkiness is not a concern.

    Liquid Crystal Display (LCD):

    Thin design, but has problems displaying images in motion (sports), the images tend to streak. These projectors usually contain three separate LCD glass panels, one for red, green, and blue components of the image being projected. As the non-colored light passes through the LCD panels, individual picture elements (pixels) can be opened to allow light to pass or closed to block the light. This produces the image that is projected onto the screen.

    Historically, LCD sets have had a problem with visible pixilation. This is less apparent on newer sets with higher screen resolutions.

    Most LCD systems use a fluorescent backlight, to shine through the LCD screen. This type of backlight will need to be replaced every few years. Some manufacturers are introducing sets with LED backlights, with a 10X longer lifetime. Even though the initial cost may be more, the cost of ownership advantage can make this design worth a look.

    Pros:
    o Better color saturation, more rich and vibrant
    o Better sharper image, important for text
    o More energy efficient

    Cons:
    o Poor black levels and contrast
    o Problems displaying images in motion (sports)
    o LCD panels (mainly in the blue channel) can degrade, causing shifts in color balance
    o Visible pixelation

    Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS):

    A type of LCD Technology, LCOS uses liquid crystal rather than mirrors to project (usually rear projection) an image on the screen. LCOS is a good value compared to plasma and LCD sets, but expensive when compared to all other rear projection television technologies such as DLP. This technique uses a chip like a DLP (see below) set does, but the chip is coated with liquid crystal, which reflects the image seen on the screen. LCOS based systems allow for higher screen resolution than an LCD display or a plasma display.

    Pros:
    o Sharp, vivid colors, and deep black levels
    o It does not slowly change over time as a plasma set does

    Cons:
    o Dead pixels usually happen because the technology is partially reflective
    o High Maintenance Cost: LCOS requires frequent bulb changing requirements (anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours, about 3-4 years with normal usage) versus 50,000 or more for most LCD or plasma screens. A replacement bulb will cost about $400
    o Reproducibility: Image quality can vary greatly from machine to machine

    Digital Light Processor (DLP):

    The DLP is a Texas Instruments product that is manufactured in Korea. It uses a chip with many mirrors (can be more than one million mirrors on a chip of about one square inch) that can be mechanically steered to reflect the correct color. This technology offers excellent display, at a moderate cost.

    In the best DLP projectors, like the ones in use at your local movie theater, there are three separate mirror chips, one each for the red, green, and blue channels. However, in the DLP projectors marketed for the masses, there is only one chip. In these sets, to define color, there is a color wheel that consists of red, green, blue filters. This wheel spins between the lamp and the DLP chip and alternates the color of the light hitting the chip.

    The spinning color wheel used to project the image can produce a problem on the screen known as the rainbow effect, which is colors separating out in distinct red, green, and blue. At any given point of time, the image on the screen is either red, or green, or blue, and the technique relies upon your eyes not being able to detect the rapid changes from one to the other. However, not only can some people see the colors separate, but the rapid sequencing of color may be responsible for reported cases of eye strain and headaches. But the vast majority of the people cannot detect the rainbow effect.

    Newer sets have the color wheel rotation speed doubled. Also, newer sets utilize a six-segment color wheel (instead of a 3 segment) that has two sequences of red, green, and blue. Because the wheel is at double speed, and because the red, green, and blue are seen twice in every rotation, the effect is a quadrupling of the rotation speed. This eliminated the visibility of rainbows for most of the people who previously saw the effect.

    Samsung and other companies have introduced DLP sets with LED lamps and no color wheel. The lamp bulbs in the older designs need to be replaced every few years. The LED lamp should last the lifetime of the television.

    LaserVue (Mitsubishi) is being introduced in the United States now in time for the Christmas season. LaserVue is a DLP system (Texas Instruments "Dark Chip 4" Digital Light Processor) that eliminates the conventional bulb and replaces it with a solid state laser. The performance of the video is outstanding, but the technology will cost you about $7000 for a 65" HDTV. The reliability/lifetime improvement may be better, but there is little data on this new laser. An Argon ion laser would be expected to have a lifetime of about 8000 hours (5-6 years of normal usage). The Mitsubishi LaserVue uses a laser system made by Arasor, an Australian startup company, made from lithium niobate (PPKN). Mitsubishi is currently performing accelerated stress testing, but has so far released no results. A LaserVue HDTV draws under 200 watts of electricity. That is approximately half that of comparable LCD HDTV, and less than a third of a plasma High-Def system.

    Pros:
    o Small package size
    o High contrast image with deep black levels
    o Good value

    Cons:
    o Less bright images
    o Rainbow effect
    o High Maintenance Cost: DLP requires frequent bulb changing requirements (anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours, about 3-4 years with normal usage) versus 50,000 or more for most LCD or plasma screens. A replacement bulb will cost about $300-$400. Samsung is using LED illumination instead of lamps. The LED should not have to be replaced.

    Plasma Display:

    Thin design, high contrast ratings, Size up to 60 inches or more; some display limitations: costly, older systems had a high burn-in risk (over time, a memory of what was projected was retained); This could pose a problem for those who like to play video games or watch taped movies. If you put the game or tape on pause for too long, this could burn an image into your screen.

    Pros:
    o Exceptional picture quality: It can produce up to 8.6 billion colors, an accurate color reproduction and wide viewing angles
    o Large screen sizes: Some Plasma TV units are now manufactured in screen sizes that can span up to 100 inches
    o Lifetime: Plasma TVs are also known for their extended lifespan capacity of approximately 60,000 hours and great contrast (deep blacks)
    o Less Expensive than LCD

    Cons:
    o The displays are very bulky, heavy, and fragile
    o Burn-in
    o Slowly degrades over time
    o Energy inefficient

    Coming Soon: OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) HDTV sets are now available, but it will be a couple of years before they warrant serious consideration. An OLED set is less than 1" thick. OLED has already used in digital cameras and cell phones with small panels, because of their energy efficiency, which is important in portable devices.

    STANDARDS:

    o NTSC Analog TV or Standard Definition TV (SDTV): The current system that is being phased out (National Television Systems Committee).
    o EDTV (Enhanced Digital TV) : basically high-end Standard Definition TV: While these sets may be better than standard sets, the picture quality is not equal to HDTV. Technically, there is little difference between an SDTV and an EDTV (except for the higher price).
    o ATSC Digital TV: This is the new system (Advanced Television Systems Committee), which is not necessarily High Definition.
    o HDTV: is digital TV where the image is a wide-screen picture with many times more detail than is contained in current analog television pictures. Most consumers will see a huge improvement in image quality. HDTV has a better quality image than SDTV because it has a greater number of lines of resolution. The image is two to five times sharper because the gaps between the scan lines are narrower.

    SUMMARY

    Any of the four technologies can be a good choice. The competition is intense, and all of the technologies will continue to improve. Buying a TV will never again be as simple as it was before HDTV, but the benefits can be worth the headaches.

    Warranty Options For Laptop Repairs

    Majority of the individuals search for the cost-effective computer repair services. If you want to have such type of service which can effectively repair your laptop, PC or computer, you have to consider few of the important things.

    The most initial thing in this regard is to know what you are going to pay for the service you are going to obtain from the service provider. Remember cheap services do not give good outcomes; however, there are some service providers who deliver extra-ordinary service at cheaper rates.

    Therefore, finding a cheaper service doesn't mean always that you are not going to have quality service. The basic thing is to make it sure whether you are going to have quality services or not. If you get the quality, or in other words the quality is ensured to be delivered at cheaper rates, one should not be eager to have expensive services only.

    The repair of computer, laptop or PC must be effective and after repair, nothing more work should be left. If you go to a repair who promises to provide you excellent service at lower cost, but he would not provide you the required standard of services, he would be useless for you. In such instance, it would be rather better to have expensive service for gaining quality work, rather than wasting your time and money.

    In these days, it is much easier to approach such companies or the experts who provide quality services at much cheaper rates. The best way is to search such agencies on the internet. When you browse such individuals or companies, you can find them easily; however, you would be required to perform some research in that instance.

    At the time of selecting or choosing such companies or experts, make it sure that the agents or the agencies have been in business since many years. Although it is difficult to assess since how long the repairers are in business if you are going to search them on the internet; nevertheless, this is not impossible. You can get the idea by means of reviews and opinions that are given by the users who have acquired the services of such companies and experts in the past. When you read their comments, you could easily find those who are best at reasonable price.

    The second important thing that should be considered before gaining the services from any company or experts, is to make it sure whether they possess certificates for good performance or not. Those agencies and experts are considered best who possess A+ certificates. Therefore, it would be rather better to approach such individuals who have obtained high qualification in that instance.

    The third important thing which should be considered at the time of selecting such individuals and the companies is that whether they provide work with warranty or not. By obtaining warranty for certain specific time period, it would become easier to get high quality services. However, if the companies or the individuals avoid warranties, they could not be trusted easily.

    Repair Laptop In Las Vegas  Nevada

    We all adore our laptop until the day it doesn't function the way we would like, or worse than this - not at all. We need to be mobile and we need to be connected making the laptop one of our best friends along with our cell phone. However when the worse case scenario occurs there are a few things we should take into account before deciding that laptop repair is the best option - with this being the obvious option what else can we consider?

    Laptop repair can be a costly expense just to have the same machine back in our hands with the possibility of having another problem and more expense to worry about in the near future. What if someone told you that you could get cash for your existing laptop, functioning or not, regardless of it´s condition, despite it being used as a doormat by the children, and having the early morning coffee split on it numerous times.

    There is now a great way to trade in your old laptop, receive a cash payment for it and this can then subsidize the purchase of a brand new computer at the same expense of paying if you had considered laptop repair - the only difference being there is no waiting for the store to call and tell you it´s not quite ready for collection, or it is going to cost a little more than first quoted, and you get a brand new laptop that is up to date. Sounds like a great way to go, but how and where can this all be done?

    It is quite a straight forward process, and a lot easier than taking the laptop for repair, all you have to do is go to a site such as www.cashforlaptops.com, they will give you a quote for your current laptop, in ANY condition, whether it is working fine, just won´t turn on, it has a cracked screen or any other damage you can possibly imagine. Once you have your quote they will rush you a prepaid box for you to rap up and return the laptop to them, once they receive the package they process your used laptop the same day - formatting the hard drive is a primary task and from there your check is mailed direct to you. No cost involved from you, just a payment in your hand in no time, quite the opposite of the laptop repair process!

    With the above said, having to choose between receiving a payment to dampen the cost of a new laptop, or pay a ghastly figure for the laptop repair, it not expands the options, it pretty much rules the original idea out. With this great way to trade in, regardless of the condition, it could change the way we think when we have to apprehend the thought of laptop repair and what to do when the worst happens - because we know negative occurrences will happen all we can do is take the best from them.

    Laptop Hardware Repair

    I'm sure we all remember the feeling of booting up a new pc or laptop and being absolutely delighted with the operating speed. Everything starts and responds so quickly, it's like a dream. But without an effective pc repair software solution, it's amazing just how quickly your new computer will start slowing down and eventually freeze, even crash.

    The reason for this is that when you first use your new pc/laptop, the registry is in absolutely pristine condition. But each time you start your computer up and open the various programs, the registry will begin accumulating clutter. This is when computer repair software can be used to good effect to repair this problem.

    The problem begins typically when you close down some of the programs that you are running. What happens is that certain elements of the programs that have been opened don't always get filed back in the exact same place. The result is that when you re-open these programs or re-boot your computer, it has to go dodging around in the registry to find all of the elements that it is looking for. Good pc repair software can alert you to these problems and instigate fixes to get your registry back into something approaching "as new" condition.

    Other problems occur when you download new programs and/or delete old programs that you are replacing or that you no longer use. In these instances, (even when you use the correct procedures), small parts of the programs get left behind. Because they are random and incomplete, these isolated remnants just clog up your hard disk. pc repair software is designed to flush out all of these anomalies and erase them.

    Every time you use your computer, further registry corruption is unavoidable. It doesn't matter how careful you are; it's just a fact of computer life. The longer you go without running computer repair software on your machine, the worse the corruption will become. Your computer responses and start times will get longer and longer. Eventually you will begin to experience incidents when your screen and/or keyboard will simply freeze. If these warning signs continue to be ignored you may even experience crashing and possible loss of data.

    There are several good pc repair software programs on the market, varying from freebies, to modestly priced products. Of course when you are using something that is going to go into your computer's registry, you need to make sure that the product you use is not going to cause any harm or damage. If you carry out an online search you will find yourself spoilt for choice; but look before you leap. Check out the fine print and make sure you use a reputable product that carries good reviews and that is compatible with both your computer and your operating system.

    One you've bought your computer repair software you can use it again and again, so it's a good investment. You need to get into the habit of running it say once a month. It doesn't take very long to run and you'll be surprised just how quickly you'll pick up new corruptions. But by running your software regularly, you will be helping to keep your pc/laptop in tip top condition.

    "Should I buy a new printer or fix the old one?" I don't know how many times I've heard this question, but I wish I had a nickel for each time. Of course, if they asked a salesperson, he'd have a ready answer for them... always "yes". But as a technician, I like to analyze the question a little before giving an answer. The standard equation was always that if the repair costs more than half the machine, then replace it. But as printer technology advances, and smaller printers last longer, that standard is changing.

    Just to give you an example, a $1,000 laser printer might easily last 150,000 pages before ever breaking down. When it finally does need repairs, a $500 maintenance kit (including labor) is nothing to wince at. It's standard almost. And the $500 will most probably carry you through another 150,000 pages. In a case like that, if you'd replaced that printer, you would have wasted $500.

    So once we get down to the dollar for dollar, the modern equation has changed, even though the standard answer from printer dealers hasn't.

    Of course, the question of repair cost and printer cost isn't the only thing to consider anymore. You have to consider down time, technological advances, and a whole mess of other things. In the end, you won't get a short, simple answer... but you can make a list of pros and cons taking into account each of the following:

    Small Consistent Repairs - If a machine breaks down every other month, it's probably time for an upgrade... even if the repairs are cheap. They aren't supposed to break often. If yours is, then either the parts are getting old and brittle, or the machine itself isn't made for the amount of work you're giving it. An acceptable 'break free' period is four months.

    Parts - With smaller machines, parts availability is usually the deciding factor when trying to decide whether to replace or repair. Especially with inkjet printers. As a matter of fact, the odds of being able repair an inkjet machine is very slim, because inkjet parts are usually not manufactured--the machine was designed to be replaceable.

    Down Time - Sometimes it's not the end of the world when a machine sits in the corner for a week waiting for parts. Sometimes it is the end of the world. If your business relies on your machine, then you need to consider a few things: 1-Is the machine reliable enough to go for long periods without breaking? 2-Is the machine a popular model, and are there parts readily available when the machine DOES break? 3-do you have anything for 'backup'? If you answered 'no' to any of these questions, you ought to think about buying a good, reliable, POPULAR machine.

    Technology - Hey--it changes, and it changes fast. If you're still using something with a parallel port, then it might be time to switch over. Yes, they'll always have things to help you convert from USB to parallel, but there are other software and memory changes that might make it impossible to use old printers. If you're thinking about upgrading your computer systems in the next couple of years, you ought to upgrade your printer as well.

    Supplies - It's really hard to let go of an old printer when you have a whole stack of unused toner cartridges. Especially if you can't sell them to recover some of your cost. If the printer is costing too much to repair, then you end up spending a dime to save a nickel. However, some of the 'old reliables' can be used for bulk printer or for back-up printers, so it's not always a total loss.

    While these are all good things to consider when paying for a printer repair, sometimes the final decision comes down to a simple budget consideration. The most important question might simply be: Do we have enough money budgeted for a new printer? Your technician can't help you answer that, but his experience can usually help you foresee the price you'll pay if you hold on to your old machine.

    Cheap Computer and Laptop Repair Services - Pros and Cons

    Most laptops have a touchpad that provides the full functionality of a traditional PC mouse. However, it often malfunctions either partially, or occasionally it will fail completely. The simple answer when it fails is to connect a USB mouse and use the laptop without the touchpad. Even after connecting a USB mouse the pointer will sometimes randomly move on the screen because the touchpad is still partly operating. The best solution is to disable or turn off the touchpad; there are two ways to do this.

    Many laptops use a function key designed to enable and disable the touchpad. Most use the Fn key plus the F8 key to do this. If this does not work with your laptop look on the key legends of the function keys for what looks like a pointing finger; this is usually the key to press along with the Fn key. However, other laptops have a tiny switch either on the side or the palm rest of the case.

    If your laptop seems not to have a touchpad disable key or switch, then you can permanently disable it from the Control Panel of Windows. To disable click on the Start Menu and select Control Panel, double-click on Mouse, click on Device Settings, and click on Disable. Finally click on OK and the touchpad will now be disabled.

    If the touchpad operates correctly most of the time but just occasionally twitches or moves the pointer a few pixels, then there is software that may save you using a USB mouse when word processing.

    Touchfreeze is a free utility that you can download and install on your laptop. It is a very small program that is simple to install and configure. Touchfreeze disables the touchpad only when you are using the keyboard, it has no effect on most touchpad movements and button clicks, etc. so will not affect the normal operation of the laptop. It helps overcome the annoying problems associated with a faulty touchpad; when using a word processor the pointer jumps to a different line or word, and you continue typing without noticing this until you check the text.

    The actions you take to overcome a faulty touchpad depend of how you use your laptop. If you always use your laptop in a fixed place on a table, for example, then you may find that a USB mouse is acceptable all the time. However, if you primarily use your laptop on the move, you probably do not have space for a USB mouse so will either want the touchpad replaced or repaired.

    Laptop Keyboard Repair In Reno  Nevada

    Laptop repair isn't always easy, but sometimes it can be. If the laptop isn't under warranty and you dont feel comfortable replacing some of these parts yourself, youll have to find a professional to do it. If you only want to upgrade then you cant send it back to the manufacturer and you'll have to find a tech to do it. You can bring it to a well known retailer like Best Buy and have their Geek Squad work on it since they're pretty well trained and always do a good job on repairs, or you can find a professional someplace else to do it for you.

    Easy to replace parts:

    Wireless adapter- if your wireless stops working for some reason, you can just go out and get a USB wireless adapter or a PCMCIA wireless adapter to put in the card slot.

    RAM/Memory- Memory is pretty easy to install and fairly inexpensive. In many cases, you can drastically improve the performance of your laptop just by adding some more memory. Most places that sell laptops can install it for you, or if you feel comfortable installing it yourself you can put it in. There's an enclosure on the bottom that you unscrew in order to install the memory.

    Hard Drive: A hard drive can be a little more tricky to upgrade. If your hard drive gets corrupted, youll probably lose most of your data unless a professional can recover it. Then you'd just have to toss it out and buy a new one and have it installed. The #1 reason for hard drive corruption is abuse, so be careful with your laptop if you want to keep your hard drive safe. If you just want to uprgrade to have more space, first youd need to back up your data and then take the old drive out and put the new one in. A hard drive upgrade is similar to a RAM upgrade. There is an enclosure usually on the bottom that contains the hard drive. In Gateway laptops it's usually in the front for easy access.

    Not so easy to replace parts:

    For these repairs you'll definitely have to take it to a professional, or sometimes it'll actually be more worth it and less hassle just to junk it and buy a new one

    CPU: If you want to upgrade the CPU in your laptop, you're going to have a hard time because usually the motherboard has to be changed as well. You'd be better off just buying a new laptop. On the other hand, if your processor goes bad for some strange reason and you want to install the same one or even a higher speed version of the same processor, it is doable. Youll probably have to ship it out or find a professional to do this.

    Motherboard: Upgrading or replacing the motherboard can be a hassle as well, and costly. Again, you'd probably be better off just buying a new laptop unless you have a good warranty and you're willing to go through the hassle of shipping it out.

    Keyboard Keys: When a key pops off the keyboard, it usually cant be put back on, so if your laptop is under warranty youll need to send it out for repair. Otherwise you can take it to a tech and have them order the keys you need.

    Graphics card: Since laptops dont have as much room as a desktop computer, the graphics card is usually integrated onto the motherboard. If you really think it's worth it to spend the money and replace the guts of your laptop, go right ahead. Otherwise I'd say buy a new laptop with a very good graphics card so you'll never feel the need to upgrade.

    Various other upgrades and add-ons can be done through USB or the PCMCIA card slot. For example, if you get more involved with things like sound and video, there are certain expansion cards you can buy depending on what you're trying to accomplish. They're usually plug and play and very easy to install.

    The Importance of Laptop Repair

    Let me from the start say that I believe that having PC repair software is a "must-have" tool for your computer.

    Did you know that on average, most computers have about 160+ errors on them as a result of corrupt or missing registry entries?

    What happens is that over time as your computer registry grows from adding and removing software and games, surfing the net, downloading etc., your PC can and probably will develop the following problems:

    - become slow to boot
    - start to develop errors
    - become very slow in its operation
    - start to give frequent error messages
    - eventually crash
    - become gradually damaged

    Computer error can result from your pc being infected with viruses, internet malware, deadlock errors, AdWare and badly ordered PC sectors.

    The worst thing you can do is ignore such errors and other symptoms as you will be out of pocket a lot more than is needed for repairs.

    What PC repair software, and there are many on the market today, will do is help repair, clean, protect, and optimize your PC for peak performance - just like it was brand new

    By using a registry cleaner your system will be more stable, your software will run quicker, and your operating system will boot faster.

    Keeping the registry clean is very important if you want top performance and full stability.

    Did you know that there is no program built into Windows that can check your computer for problems in the registry. It is therefore very important to get hold of some PC repair software.

    Now here's the important tip I promised:

    Before buying or downloading any PC repair software check the system requirements needed by the program. An incompatible registry cleaner will harm your system rather than doing any good.

    Laptop Screen Repair Cost In North Las Vegas  Nevada

    The FCC standard for HDTV broadcast is having a huge impact. The amount of information to be digested can be intimidating, even for the professional. The old hardware does not become obsolete, but it will require a tuner to convert from the new signal if you get your signal from a VHF/UHF antenna. If you have cable or satellite TV, this will be taken care of by the service provider.

    However, this might be a good time to upgrade your hardware. The new standard offers a much better picture. In the current world of digital projectors, LCD, LCOS, Plasma, and DLP are the four different kinds of televisions that dominate the HDTV market. Each has unique advantages over the other. Plasma and some of the LCD screens can be mounted on the wall, although surveys find that few people do mount them on the wall. DLP and LCOS and some of the LCD units are both projector technologies. Rear projector units are usually the most cost-effective. The size of some systems is now less than 12 inches in depth.

    o Video quality on the best projectors now surpasses that available in a conventional commercial movie theater.

    SYSTEM TYPES:

    o Traditional TV: also called direct view, has the images displayed on a picture tube (Cathode Ray Tube).
  • LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) and Plasma TV can also be direct view. The LCD and Plasma TV systems are the "flat-panel" units.
    o Rear Projection TV (RPTV): uses a combination of mirrors and lenses to project the image from behind onto the viewing screen. This enables the displayed picture to be significantly larger, up to 70 inches or more. This technique usually offers the best value (picture size vs. cost).
    o Front Projection TV (FPTV): this is like a movie theater. The image is projected forward, to an external screen. But like a movie theater, a very dark room is required because the screen will reflect any light in the room. This technique is usually more expensive than rear-projection, but the footprint (the area consumed by the equipment) of the system is smaller.
  • DISPLAY TECHNIQUES:

    CRT (Cathode Ray Tube):

    The established standard for television displays; good value, picture quality. The maximum size of the screen is smaller with the technique. The technology is still a good choice where a smaller picture is desired, and bulkiness is not a concern.

    Liquid Crystal Display (LCD):

    Thin design, but has problems displaying images in motion (sports), the images tend to streak. These projectors usually contain three separate LCD glass panels, one for red, green, and blue components of the image being projected. As the non-colored light passes through the LCD panels, individual picture elements (pixels) can be opened to allow light to pass or closed to block the light. This produces the image that is projected onto the screen.

    Historically, LCD sets have had a problem with visible pixilation. This is less apparent on newer sets with higher screen resolutions.

    Most LCD systems use a fluorescent backlight, to shine through the LCD screen. This type of backlight will need to be replaced every few years. Some manufacturers are introducing sets with LED backlights, with a 10X longer lifetime. Even though the initial cost may be more, the cost of ownership advantage can make this design worth a look.

    Pros:
    o Better color saturation, more rich and vibrant
    o Better sharper image, important for text
    o More energy efficient

    Cons:
    o Poor black levels and contrast
    o Problems displaying images in motion (sports)
    o LCD panels (mainly in the blue channel) can degrade, causing shifts in color balance
    o Visible pixelation

    Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS):

    A type of LCD Technology, LCOS uses liquid crystal rather than mirrors to project (usually rear projection) an image on the screen. LCOS is a good value compared to plasma and LCD sets, but expensive when compared to all other rear projection television technologies such as DLP. This technique uses a chip like a DLP (see below) set does, but the chip is coated with liquid crystal, which reflects the image seen on the screen. LCOS based systems allow for higher screen resolution than an LCD display or a plasma display.

    Pros:
    o Sharp, vivid colors, and deep black levels
    o It does not slowly change over time as a plasma set does

    Cons:
    o Dead pixels usually happen because the technology is partially reflective
    o High Maintenance Cost: LCOS requires frequent bulb changing requirements (anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours, about 3-4 years with normal usage) versus 50,000 or more for most LCD or plasma screens. A replacement bulb will cost about $400
    o Reproducibility: Image quality can vary greatly from machine to machine

    Digital Light Processor (DLP):

    The DLP is a Texas Instruments product that is manufactured in Korea. It uses a chip with many mirrors (can be more than one million mirrors on a chip of about one square inch) that can be mechanically steered to reflect the correct color. This technology offers excellent display, at a moderate cost.

    In the best DLP projectors, like the ones in use at your local movie theater, there are three separate mirror chips, one each for the red, green, and blue channels. However, in the DLP projectors marketed for the masses, there is only one chip. In these sets, to define color, there is a color wheel that consists of red, green, blue filters. This wheel spins between the lamp and the DLP chip and alternates the color of the light hitting the chip.

    The spinning color wheel used to project the image can produce a problem on the screen known as the rainbow effect, which is colors separating out in distinct red, green, and blue. At any given point of time, the image on the screen is either red, or green, or blue, and the technique relies upon your eyes not being able to detect the rapid changes from one to the other. However, not only can some people see the colors separate, but the rapid sequencing of color may be responsible for reported cases of eye strain and headaches. But the vast majority of the people cannot detect the rainbow effect.

    Newer sets have the color wheel rotation speed doubled. Also, newer sets utilize a six-segment color wheel (instead of a 3 segment) that has two sequences of red, green, and blue. Because the wheel is at double speed, and because the red, green, and blue are seen twice in every rotation, the effect is a quadrupling of the rotation speed. This eliminated the visibility of rainbows for most of the people who previously saw the effect.

    Samsung and other companies have introduced DLP sets with LED lamps and no color wheel. The lamp bulbs in the older designs need to be replaced every few years. The LED lamp should last the lifetime of the television.

    LaserVue (Mitsubishi) is being introduced in the United States now in time for the Christmas season. LaserVue is a DLP system (Texas Instruments "Dark Chip 4" Digital Light Processor) that eliminates the conventional bulb and replaces it with a solid state laser. The performance of the video is outstanding, but the technology will cost you about $7000 for a 65" HDTV. The reliability/lifetime improvement may be better, but there is little data on this new laser. An Argon ion laser would be expected to have a lifetime of about 8000 hours (5-6 years of normal usage). The Mitsubishi LaserVue uses a laser system made by Arasor, an Australian startup company, made from lithium niobate (PPKN). Mitsubishi is currently performing accelerated stress testing, but has so far released no results. A LaserVue HDTV draws under 200 watts of electricity. That is approximately half that of comparable LCD HDTV, and less than a third of a plasma High-Def system.

    Pros:
    o Small package size
    o High contrast image with deep black levels
    o Good value

    Cons:
    o Less bright images
    o Rainbow effect
    o High Maintenance Cost: DLP requires frequent bulb changing requirements (anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours, about 3-4 years with normal usage) versus 50,000 or more for most LCD or plasma screens. A replacement bulb will cost about $300-$400. Samsung is using LED illumination instead of lamps. The LED should not have to be replaced.

    Plasma Display:

    Thin design, high contrast ratings, Size up to 60 inches or more; some display limitations: costly, older systems had a high burn-in risk (over time, a memory of what was projected was retained); This could pose a problem for those who like to play video games or watch taped movies. If you put the game or tape on pause for too long, this could burn an image into your screen.

    Pros:
    o Exceptional picture quality: It can produce up to 8.6 billion colors, an accurate color reproduction and wide viewing angles
    o Large screen sizes: Some Plasma TV units are now manufactured in screen sizes that can span up to 100 inches
    o Lifetime: Plasma TVs are also known for their extended lifespan capacity of approximately 60,000 hours and great contrast (deep blacks)
    o Less Expensive than LCD

    Cons:
    o The displays are very bulky, heavy, and fragile
    o Burn-in
    o Slowly degrades over time
    o Energy inefficient

    Coming Soon: OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) HDTV sets are now available, but it will be a couple of years before they warrant serious consideration. An OLED set is less than 1" thick. OLED has already used in digital cameras and cell phones with small panels, because of their energy efficiency, which is important in portable devices.

    STANDARDS:

    o NTSC Analog TV or Standard Definition TV (SDTV): The current system that is being phased out (National Television Systems Committee).
    o EDTV (Enhanced Digital TV) : basically high-end Standard Definition TV: While these sets may be better than standard sets, the picture quality is not equal to HDTV. Technically, there is little difference between an SDTV and an EDTV (except for the higher price).
    o ATSC Digital TV: This is the new system (Advanced Television Systems Committee), which is not necessarily High Definition.
    o HDTV: is digital TV where the image is a wide-screen picture with many times more detail than is contained in current analog television pictures. Most consumers will see a huge improvement in image quality. HDTV has a better quality image than SDTV because it has a greater number of lines of resolution. The image is two to five times sharper because the gaps between the scan lines are narrower.

    SUMMARY

    Any of the four technologies can be a good choice. The competition is intense, and all of the technologies will continue to improve. Buying a TV will never again be as simple as it was before HDTV, but the benefits can be worth the headaches.

    As my life has drastically changed in the last 5 years I have had to look into new outlets for making money. In my spare time I began researching different ideas on the web and tried to find something I could really relate to. I'd like to tell you I had success from the start but unfortunately it was quite the long road before I began to see any substantial return.

    Recently I was looking online for a way to repair my laptop and stumbled upon a laptop repair training course. After doing some research it seemed that the program was actually legit and it sparked a business idea for me. I figured if I could learn how to effectively repair laptops and than I could have a very lucrative trade in our heavily computerized world.

    Once I get the wheels turning it is usually hard to stop me and I downloaded the course within the next few days and began to study relentlessly. I must say overall I was very impressed with the course and it gave me a solid foundation to take off with. The videos are 10 hours long consisting of 40 different parts and really help you get the fundamentals of laptop repair down as well as an understanding for some of the more common issues.

    At first I started small and just helped with friends laptops before actually fixing anything for a fee. I would definitely recommend you take it slow with this process and get your hands on a few laptops first before you get to the business side of things. There is no need to overwhelm yourself from the beginning, just take on the first task of learning the trade and move forward from there.

    You can also find several other resources on the web for repairing computers, but this is definitely a great pace to start. If you decide to give it a go than the learning process will be ongoing and you will always have to be searching for information on specific models and brands because each machine is always different. One of the great things about fixing laptops and the video series I watched is that it really helps you get the fundamentals down with the inner workings of a laptop and teaches you to how to find the most common problems which is the best way to get started.

    I'm sure we all remember the feeling of booting up a new pc or laptop and being absolutely delighted with the operating speed. Everything starts and responds so quickly, it's like a dream. But without an effective pc repair software solution, it's amazing just how quickly your new computer will start slowing down and eventually freeze, even crash.

    The reason for this is that when you first use your new pc/laptop, the registry is in absolutely pristine condition. But each time you start your computer up and open the various programs, the registry will begin accumulating clutter. This is when computer repair software can be used to good effect to repair this problem.

    The problem begins typically when you close down some of the programs that you are running. What happens is that certain elements of the programs that have been opened don't always get filed back in the exact same place. The result is that when you re-open these programs or re-boot your computer, it has to go dodging around in the registry to find all of the elements that it is looking for. Good pc repair software can alert you to these problems and instigate fixes to get your registry back into something approaching "as new" condition.

    Other problems occur when you download new programs and/or delete old programs that you are replacing or that you no longer use. In these instances, (even when you use the correct procedures), small parts of the programs get left behind. Because they are random and incomplete, these isolated remnants just clog up your hard disk. pc repair software is designed to flush out all of these anomalies and erase them.

    Every time you use your computer, further registry corruption is unavoidable. It doesn't matter how careful you are; it's just a fact of computer life. The longer you go without running computer repair software on your machine, the worse the corruption will become. Your computer responses and start times will get longer and longer. Eventually you will begin to experience incidents when your screen and/or keyboard will simply freeze. If these warning signs continue to be ignored you may even experience crashing and possible loss of data.

    There are several good pc repair software programs on the market, varying from freebies, to modestly priced products. Of course when you are using something that is going to go into your computer's registry, you need to make sure that the product you use is not going to cause any harm or damage. If you carry out an online search you will find yourself spoilt for choice; but look before you leap. Check out the fine print and make sure you use a reputable product that carries good reviews and that is compatible with both your computer and your operating system.

    One you've bought your computer repair software you can use it again and again, so it's a good investment. You need to get into the habit of running it say once a month. It doesn't take very long to run and you'll be surprised just how quickly you'll pick up new corruptions. But by running your software regularly, you will be helping to keep your pc/laptop in tip top condition.

    Cheap Computer and Laptop Repair Services - Pros and Cons

    These days, many IT businesses are incorporating laptops & LCD Monitor desktops into their expertise infrastructure. These lovely & handy laptops allow you to do your work at your own ease even when you are not in your work-place. They attach flexibility and anyplace, anytime access to your business. Moreover, these laptop computers are absolutely useful while traveling. You can be in touch with your business associates anytime as the requirement may be. Not only in work-places, these laptops are fast becoming popular among educational institutions & students. An ever increasing number of schools are now endorsing the use of laptop computers. But as the saying goes every coin has 2 sides even here there is another side . If anything goes wrong with their functioning, it is exceedingly difficult to get them repaired quickly and at reasonable rates. And in this age no business would want to suffer for lack of dependable laptop repair service centers. We generally are constantly vexed by the question "How to fix a damaged laptop?", then please proceed & read this article in order to get most solutions to your laptop repair related problems. Where can we find the genuine parts? A good place to start is use Google and search on your part number::

    That is in case we are looking for do-it-ourselves instructions about laptop or notebook repair? Here we have disassembly manuals, pictures and videos ordered by manufacturer. Which would include the likes of HP, Dell, Sony, NEC, Acer, Ricoh e.t.c.,

    Another good source is to do a search on froogle as well. Failing that we can call the original manufacturer and find out the cost. Which normally is more than the market rates. Frequently experienced problems in any laptops "believe it or not" are caused by USER ERROR!

    One laptop failure that is usually worth repairing is the hard drive. Laptop hard drives have a higher failure rate than desktop hard drives, assumedly because they get bounced around more. The first step to take when working on any laptop or notebook computer is to remove the battery. Even if the power button is well protected, like under the closed lid of the screen, it doesn't mean that the power might not come on due to a mechanical jolt or a short when we are working on the insides, so the best bet is to just get the battery out of there. In some ways, laptop troubleshooting is easier than PC troubleshooting. The basis is that laptops are so highly integrated that many problems you can fix on a PC require replacing the main board of a laptop, Replacing the battery is often a solution to power related problems (though costly) or you may use reconditioned batteries, but repairing the charging circuitry is beyond the average home user. While operating Technicians generally are able to perform system board level repair on laptops, there are not too many problems which they cannot diagnose. Of course, some systems may require a part or component which has over the time become obsolete and that makes some repairs more difficult and time consuming. Some common problems encountered each day are blank screens, systems that don't power on, or turn on then off, systems that cannot charge batteries, ac adapter sockets which are broken and similar problems. I would first look for a local shop that can fix my laptop. If my laptop is older and the screen has either been broken or damaged or just does not switch on it might better considering to replace the entire laptop. Replacing the L.C.D screen can be the most expensive affair of the laptop. And as a matter of fact Most of the companies like Dell, HP lose millions of dollars in replacing these LCD's or charge it on the insurance cover. Therefore it would be highly advisable to use either 3M Protection filters or Privacy filters for these screens as the surface of these screens are vulnerable to punctures, stains & damages. What these filters do is give an anti-glare coating, protect the surface from getting damaged & give you a privacy feature where-in its only the user who can see the data & not a person sitting next to him, this therefore is an added feature in this fast paced world where information security is so very critical. Also one more thing that we need to always remember is that since laptops help us carry valuable data across different places, companies & countries, we need to protect the unit without compromising on the quality of the laptop case or bag. Laptop cases are no longer simply about getting your laptop from one place to another; you can do that with a plastic grocery bag. With more people than ever daily toting their computers between the office and the home, the laptop case is now expected to mix sturdiness, protection, style-the ratio of those elements is up to you. And since with the laptop you might have to carry battery charger or other required components, its better to have removable mesh accessory pouch, removable CD/DVD sleeve that holds eight discs, a detachable mobile phone case, and a zip-down workstation. There fore in conclusion, I would like to cite that the advent of Laptop has been a blessing for us, now it is up to us as to how we actually maintain it optimally.

    Let me from the start say that I believe that having PC repair software is a "must-have" tool for your computer.

    Did you know that on average, most computers have about 160+ errors on them as a result of corrupt or missing registry entries?

    What happens is that over time as your computer registry grows from adding and removing software and games, surfing the net, downloading etc., your PC can and probably will develop the following problems:

    - become slow to boot
    - start to develop errors
    - become very slow in its operation
    - start to give frequent error messages
    - eventually crash
    - become gradually damaged

    Computer error can result from your pc being infected with viruses, internet malware, deadlock errors, AdWare and badly ordered PC sectors.

    The worst thing you can do is ignore such errors and other symptoms as you will be out of pocket a lot more than is needed for repairs.

    What PC repair software, and there are many on the market today, will do is help repair, clean, protect, and optimize your PC for peak performance - just like it was brand new

    By using a registry cleaner your system will be more stable, your software will run quicker, and your operating system will boot faster.

    Keeping the registry clean is very important if you want top performance and full stability.

    Did you know that there is no program built into Windows that can check your computer for problems in the registry. It is therefore very important to get hold of some PC repair software.

    Now here's the important tip I promised:

    Before buying or downloading any PC repair software check the system requirements needed by the program. An incompatible registry cleaner will harm your system rather than doing any good.

    Cheap Laptop Repairs and You - 5 Ways to Reduce the Cost

    The FCC standard for HDTV broadcast is having a huge impact. The amount of information to be digested can be intimidating, even for the professional. The old hardware does not become obsolete, but it will require a tuner to convert from the new signal if you get your signal from a VHF/UHF antenna. If you have cable or satellite TV, this will be taken care of by the service provider.

    However, this might be a good time to upgrade your hardware. The new standard offers a much better picture. In the current world of digital projectors, LCD, LCOS, Plasma, and DLP are the four different kinds of televisions that dominate the HDTV market. Each has unique advantages over the other. Plasma and some of the LCD screens can be mounted on the wall, although surveys find that few people do mount them on the wall. DLP and LCOS and some of the LCD units are both projector technologies. Rear projector units are usually the most cost-effective. The size of some systems is now less than 12 inches in depth.

    o Video quality on the best projectors now surpasses that available in a conventional commercial movie theater.

    SYSTEM TYPES:

    o Traditional TV: also called direct view, has the images displayed on a picture tube (Cathode Ray Tube).
  • LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) and Plasma TV can also be direct view. The LCD and Plasma TV systems are the "flat-panel" units.
    o Rear Projection TV (RPTV): uses a combination of mirrors and lenses to project the image from behind onto the viewing screen. This enables the displayed picture to be significantly larger, up to 70 inches or more. This technique usually offers the best value (picture size vs. cost).
    o Front Projection TV (FPTV): this is like a movie theater. The image is projected forward, to an external screen. But like a movie theater, a very dark room is required because the screen will reflect any light in the room. This technique is usually more expensive than rear-projection, but the footprint (the area consumed by the equipment) of the system is smaller.
  • DISPLAY TECHNIQUES:

    CRT (Cathode Ray Tube):

    The established standard for television displays; good value, picture quality. The maximum size of the screen is smaller with the technique. The technology is still a good choice where a smaller picture is desired, and bulkiness is not a concern.

    Liquid Crystal Display (LCD):

    Thin design, but has problems displaying images in motion (sports), the images tend to streak. These projectors usually contain three separate LCD glass panels, one for red, green, and blue components of the image being projected. As the non-colored light passes through the LCD panels, individual picture elements (pixels) can be opened to allow light to pass or closed to block the light. This produces the image that is projected onto the screen.

    Historically, LCD sets have had a problem with visible pixilation. This is less apparent on newer sets with higher screen resolutions.

    Most LCD systems use a fluorescent backlight, to shine through the LCD screen. This type of backlight will need to be replaced every few years. Some manufacturers are introducing sets with LED backlights, with a 10X longer lifetime. Even though the initial cost may be more, the cost of ownership advantage can make this design worth a look.

    Pros:
    o Better color saturation, more rich and vibrant
    o Better sharper image, important for text
    o More energy efficient

    Cons:
    o Poor black levels and contrast
    o Problems displaying images in motion (sports)
    o LCD panels (mainly in the blue channel) can degrade, causing shifts in color balance
    o Visible pixelation

    Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS):

    A type of LCD Technology, LCOS uses liquid crystal rather than mirrors to project (usually rear projection) an image on the screen. LCOS is a good value compared to plasma and LCD sets, but expensive when compared to all other rear projection television technologies such as DLP. This technique uses a chip like a DLP (see below) set does, but the chip is coated with liquid crystal, which reflects the image seen on the screen. LCOS based systems allow for higher screen resolution than an LCD display or a plasma display.

    Pros:
    o Sharp, vivid colors, and deep black levels
    o It does not slowly change over time as a plasma set does

    Cons:
    o Dead pixels usually happen because the technology is partially reflective
    o High Maintenance Cost: LCOS requires frequent bulb changing requirements (anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours, about 3-4 years with normal usage) versus 50,000 or more for most LCD or plasma screens. A replacement bulb will cost about $400
    o Reproducibility: Image quality can vary greatly from machine to machine

    Digital Light Processor (DLP):

    The DLP is a Texas Instruments product that is manufactured in Korea. It uses a chip with many mirrors (can be more than one million mirrors on a chip of about one square inch) that can be mechanically steered to reflect the correct color. This technology offers excellent display, at a moderate cost.

    In the best DLP projectors, like the ones in use at your local movie theater, there are three separate mirror chips, one each for the red, green, and blue channels. However, in the DLP projectors marketed for the masses, there is only one chip. In these sets, to define color, there is a color wheel that consists of red, green, blue filters. This wheel spins between the lamp and the DLP chip and alternates the color of the light hitting the chip.

    The spinning color wheel used to project the image can produce a problem on the screen known as the rainbow effect, which is colors separating out in distinct red, green, and blue. At any given point of time, the image on the screen is either red, or green, or blue, and the technique relies upon your eyes not being able to detect the rapid changes from one to the other. However, not only can some people see the colors separate, but the rapid sequencing of color may be responsible for reported cases of eye strain and headaches. But the vast majority of the people cannot detect the rainbow effect.

    Newer sets have the color wheel rotation speed doubled. Also, newer sets utilize a six-segment color wheel (instead of a 3 segment) that has two sequences of red, green, and blue. Because the wheel is at double speed, and because the red, green, and blue are seen twice in every rotation, the effect is a quadrupling of the rotation speed. This eliminated the visibility of rainbows for most of the people who previously saw the effect.

    Samsung and other companies have introduced DLP sets with LED lamps and no color wheel. The lamp bulbs in the older designs need to be replaced every few years. The LED lamp should last the lifetime of the television.

    LaserVue (Mitsubishi) is being introduced in the United States now in time for the Christmas season. LaserVue is a DLP system (Texas Instruments "Dark Chip 4" Digital Light Processor) that eliminates the conventional bulb and replaces it with a solid state laser. The performance of the video is outstanding, but the technology will cost you about $7000 for a 65" HDTV. The reliability/lifetime improvement may be better, but there is little data on this new laser. An Argon ion laser would be expected to have a lifetime of about 8000 hours (5-6 years of normal usage). The Mitsubishi LaserVue uses a laser system made by Arasor, an Australian startup company, made from lithium niobate (PPKN). Mitsubishi is currently performing accelerated stress testing, but has so far released no results. A LaserVue HDTV draws under 200 watts of electricity. That is approximately half that of comparable LCD HDTV, and less than a third of a plasma High-Def system.

    Pros:
    o Small package size
    o High contrast image with deep black levels
    o Good value

    Cons:
    o Less bright images
    o Rainbow effect
    o High Maintenance Cost: DLP requires frequent bulb changing requirements (anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours, about 3-4 years with normal usage) versus 50,000 or more for most LCD or plasma screens. A replacement bulb will cost about $300-$400. Samsung is using LED illumination instead of lamps. The LED should not have to be replaced.

    Plasma Display:

    Thin design, high contrast ratings, Size up to 60 inches or more; some display limitations: costly, older systems had a high burn-in risk (over time, a memory of what was projected was retained); This could pose a problem for those who like to play video games or watch taped movies. If you put the game or tape on pause for too long, this could burn an image into your screen.

    Pros:
    o Exceptional picture quality: It can produce up to 8.6 billion colors, an accurate color reproduction and wide viewing angles
    o Large screen sizes: Some Plasma TV units are now manufactured in screen sizes that can span up to 100 inches
    o Lifetime: Plasma TVs are also known for their extended lifespan capacity of approximately 60,000 hours and great contrast (deep blacks)
    o Less Expensive than LCD

    Cons:
    o The displays are very bulky, heavy, and fragile
    o Burn-in
    o Slowly degrades over time
    o Energy inefficient

    Coming Soon: OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) HDTV sets are now available, but it will be a couple of years before they warrant serious consideration. An OLED set is less than 1" thick. OLED has already used in digital cameras and cell phones with small panels, because of their energy efficiency, which is important in portable devices.

    STANDARDS:

    o NTSC Analog TV or Standard Definition TV (SDTV): The current system that is being phased out (National Television Systems Committee).
    o EDTV (Enhanced Digital TV) : basically high-end Standard Definition TV: While these sets may be better than standard sets, the picture quality is not equal to HDTV. Technically, there is little difference between an SDTV and an EDTV (except for the higher price).
    o ATSC Digital TV: This is the new system (Advanced Television Systems Committee), which is not necessarily High Definition.
    o HDTV: is digital TV where the image is a wide-screen picture with many times more detail than is contained in current analog television pictures. Most consumers will see a huge improvement in image quality. HDTV has a better quality image than SDTV because it has a greater number of lines of resolution. The image is two to five times sharper because the gaps between the scan lines are narrower.

    SUMMARY

    Any of the four technologies can be a good choice. The competition is intense, and all of the technologies will continue to improve. Buying a TV will never again be as simple as it was before HDTV, but the benefits can be worth the headaches.

    A laptop is essential for students and working individuals. Because of its portability, users can write important papers, connect to the Internet via wireless modems, and can even watch movies anytime and anywhere. But without proper care, this machine can break down, and especially, there can be problems with the LCD monitor. Here are some tips that can help you in troubleshooting your laptop's LCD monitor.

    Is there something wrong with your screen? If this is so, then there is a possibility that the LCD (liquid crystal display) backlight of your laptop is broken. The LCD backlight is the source of light that gives you a clearer visual of your screen. Symptoms of LCD damage include:

    - Dim laptop LCD

    - Flickering screen

    - Faint images on your LCD

    - No video image

    - Faded laptop LCD

    A laptop backlight is composed of four parts and these are:

    - Laptop inverter

    - LCD lamp

    - Inverter cable

    - Toggle switch

    Damage to any of these parts may result to the symptoms stated above. Unfortunately, there is no other way to be sure if one of these parts are damaged without using a tester. Some of the main causes of damage to these parts include age and excessive use of your laptop. Parts such as the LCD lamp usually last for two years minimum.

    Aside from the blacklight, it is possible that your LCD screen itself is damaged. This problem can be very serious because the LCD is the most fragile and expensive part of your laptop. Symptoms of LCD damage include:

    - Decolorization of your screen

    - Appearance of stripes or lines on your screen

    LCD damage is usually caused by hard impacts to your laptop. Remember, the LCD is a very sensitive and fragile piece of equipment. Even the slightest amount of pressure on your LCD can cause it to break.

    The only way to repair the backlight and the LCD monitor is to replace them. Replacing the LCD monitor alone can cost you around $250 and that is apart from the $120 service fee that most laptop repair companies charge.
