I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Estimate a price for this laptop.

considering what you can get new, I would pay no more than $300 for that laptop, and thats a stretch even.

It might not be that the seller is trying to rip you off, but that they dont know how quickly things change in the computer world. $300 is the ceiling on the price.

Hey guys, I have a T430s that has the connector where the AC adapter goes broken and I would like to know how much will Lenovo charge me to repair it. The laptop is NOT under warranty anymore and I already opened a service ticket, but nobody is answering it from Lenovo. Thanks.


Go to Solution.

Answer:How can I get an estimate of repair?

How did you open the ticket?
If you haven't already, I'd call Service, direct, and chat with them: 1-800-426-7378 to see what cost you're looking at.
Alternatively, since the laptop isn't under warranty, and if you or a friend/colleague/family member is comfortable working inside your laptop, grab a copy of your Hardware Maintenance Manual: and have a look at manual pages: 91-92. The good news is that the input jack isn't soldered to the system board.
Looking at the FRU BOM: that part is FRU P/N 04W3997.
Searching for that FRU P/N at the Maintenance Parts site: shows it as "available" with a price of $34 + S/H.
Hope this helps.

Today, the price of gold sits around $1660/fine ounce, maybe Huawei should put their E173 and E220 drivers on wall st. The price per unit would surely surpass that of gold before the close of trade.
On the Vodacom website there are two downloads for the E220, a pc software for vodafone and a VMC update for the dashboard. I downloaded and installed the software for Vodafone onto the laptop, and thereafter dowloaded and updated the E220 with the VMCLite_E220_3_2_1_156_standard program.

Now, since the modem's dashboard could be updated, it would be safe to say that the modem was detected, right?
Well, this is what happens when I open the Vodafone program:

I'm about to get a 2TB hard drive for backup and I'm planning to do a system image via Windows backup software. Right now I only have a single 1TB in my system but I'm thinking that I may add another TB soon. How is the compression for a system image? Will an image of 2 1TB disks take up the entire 2TB drive or will I have room for a movie partition?


Answer:Backup size estimate

I don't think that two 1TB drives will fill one 2TB drive for backup unless the whole of both 1TB drives are full and no compression is used. But if you are worried, you can always get an inexpensive NAS with three 2TB drives in a RAID 5 setup, thereby giving you 4TB of usable and redundant space.

So I am given the opportunity to set up a wireless network in a local business over here. I'm not a business, and usually only do things like this for friends of the family, but I have an opportunity to make some extra cash.

Would any of you know how to determine the cost estimate of setting up a network in a building that is one floor, 6 computers (WinXP), and a network printer?

Parts needed: They will all need PCI wireless cards, including a router, WPA or WEP 128bit encryption (depending on suggestions), and one PCMCIA wireless card, possibly some Cat5e also, not sure yet.

I will have to install / configure the router, and add pci cards on each PC, setup those to have the key to get online, setup a network printer as well....

How would one go about determining the estimate for something such as this? I always just charge per hour, but this is new to me.

Any suggestions? I am all ears!

Take Care,

Downtown Seal Beach, CA
Mainly 2 story buildings down main street
Above Ground Electrical
Linksys style wireless found in quite a few places.
Channel 1 seems to be used sparingly. Most people are on channel 6

4' 15dB omni antenna mounted on second story roof. Base of antenna will be aprox 26' off the ground.
Access Point will be mounted on same pole as omni
lightning arrestor will be placed inline on antenna
pigtail will go between lightning arrestor and access point
1W amplifier on antenna
So figure 13dB of usable antenna after you figure in the losses due to the lightning arrestor and my pigtail.

What sort of range do you think I will get Line of Sight?
What sort of range do you think I will get through minimal obstructions?

I am looking at using a netgear WS102 access point because it supports WDS. If I need to increase the range I can always get some point to point repeating going.

Let me know your opinions.

Hi people,

Ive recently built myself a high spec pc to replace my old comp after the PSU blow up on me. I built my new comp and got a new PSU to replace the busted one. Just wanted your honest opinion on how much my comp is worth. Im in the UK and I have read in other posts that UK components tend to have a higher cost attached: any way here is the spec:

ASrock ALiveNF5-eSATA2+R3.0 Motherboard
AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition @ 2500MHz
2GB Corsair DDR2 800Mhz (2X1gb dual channel) 4-4-4-12 xms2-6400
ASUS Geforce 7900GTX (GDDR3 512MB 1600Mhz Memory, 650MHz Core Clock) PCI-E x16
Soundblaster Audigy ZS Platinum 7.1 sound card (PCI)
extra USB ports through motherboard header to expansion bracket on the back panel
Thermaltake Black Shark Case
Arctic Power 500W PSU (brand new)

I have 2 possible monitors but it depends on how much it bumps up the value
VGA Dell 17" E177FP or
DVI & VGA GNU TS900 19"

Also I have a copy of XP Pro and Vista Ultimate do u think installing a different one of these would make a difference to the value?

your estimates are appreciated, i was thinkin around 300-400 ($474.15 - $632.2)? Please let me know, Thanks...


Answer:PC Value Estimate of a UK Custom Build

Hi George,

Hate to be the barer of bad news but due to the drop in cost of new prebuilt old systems are not worth that much.

For 400 I could get a brand new i5 with 4GB DDR3 and a 500GB HD. Your total system value is probably less than 100.:cry

My honest opinion is either utilise it yourself for something or break it down to individual components and sell it on eBay. No one will pay more than 100 for the complete system but you may find that you get 50 for MB+CPU+Heatsink, 20 for GPU 10 for RAM 20 for case, 20 for HD etc Your main market will be people who have similar PCs but parts have broken and they need spares.

Never good, breaking up with an old rig.

Hello TSG!

Feel free to move thread if needed.

I have been working on a custom build, intended for some-what high end gaming. Nothing above 1080p and High/Ultra settings for most of the games I plan on running; mostly DX11 is the plan.

I have always been paranoid about PSU wattage and under powering my custom builds so in the past, I usually shot high on the PSU wattage, 12V+ rails etc...

But this time, since it's going to be a bit more spendy, I would like a second or tenth opinion!

Here is the list of the hardware:

Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
SSD: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
RAM: G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model

Video Card: EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST SuperClocked 2GB 192-bit GDDR5

And the case so you have an idea of where the PSU is mounted and the space available.

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Thanks again TSG!

Answer:PSU Estimate Assistance Needed

A quality 500 watt should do fine for that setup, to give you more headroom if you ever wanted to upgrade to a better graphics card I'd go with at least a 600 watt PSU or better though.

Generally I recommend Corsair power supplies, either the GS600 or the TX650 would be good candidates.

Seal Beach, CA
Halfway between Central and Electric

Most buildings on main are 2 story. I want to push wireless up and down main st.

I am using a Netgear WG102 Access Point through a 1W amp and a 15.4dB 15deg down 3' tall omni antenna. I will mount this a bit back on the roof and up a pole. The bottom of the antenna will be aprox 6 feet off the roof making a total of aprox 26 feet off the ground.

Wireless traffic on the street is somewhat heavy, but most people seem to be on channel 6. I will run this on either channel 12 or 1 because of this.

What kind of line of sight range do you think I'll get?

What kind of usable range inside the buildings do you think I'll get?

I know these are average figures, but I am just looking for a good educated guess.


Answer:Please estimate wireless range

my experience has been that wireless range greatly depends on whats it has to go through. If tere is steel, forget about it, your lucky to get a few feet.
(but im talking about solid steel beams and air ducts)

otherwise, you can get good range as advertised through open air or wood.

Before I can give an approx price tag on your system, one thing for me needs a little clarification, maybe this to will help others slap a price tag on your system.

But I'm a little leery with the use of some words here, "just bought" and "brand new' and "few months old"! But with the BIOS having a version date of July-31-2007, how new can this computer be?

I'll just sit back a while and see if this can be clearly explained by either you and or someone else out there who might have an answer. After that I may slap a price tag on what I feel this system is worth. But do take one thing into consideration when standing by and awaiting peoples approx value of your system. Just like buying a new car, once it's front two tires hit a city street the dealership automatically devalues the car by 1/4 right from the get go, I should know I worked for Chevrolet as a car salesman for 3 years. So as like with cars so true with computers, they can depreciate their value very quickly. Even just by burning some hours on a computer, it can therefor go towards people not looking as the system as brand new anymore, but rather they might now think depreciated value.

Just something to think about!

Hi. I've got a small problem with the network estimate provided for my university wifi connection. It tends to massively overstate my usage-it seems to indicate that when I load the google homepage for example th usage estimate increases by 900kB! I have no downloads or anything running and over the last 20 days (of which only 2 days I connected to this network) it says that I've used 29GB.It's a minor annoyance but I liked that it was resonably accurate before.

EDIT: It's not my university giving me the wifi estimate just to be clear. It's the value I see on the network connections of the wifi I'm connected to

Answer:Network estimate problem

Hi john titor,

For your reference, I just test a FF launch to my home page and it showed 0.02MBs metered. So either something has changed drastically or you have something accessing your internet connection, over your wifi, without your knowledge. Now, this is possible if you have some background processes set to auto (like Windows Updates). However, if you can not specifically identify what's running automatically, I would recommend a complete malware scan for starters. You might also inquire if other university students have noticed a difference as well and do a double check when you try to access your wifi at home. Good luck.

Answer:Solved: Estimate of this computers worth?

Hard to say, I would guess 2-300 usd.

Used PCs are hard to sell unless you have a computer repair business and a long list of customers that may need a good used PC from time to time.

Kind of like used cars, used car lots can get more money for their cars than individuals in most cases.

Hello fellow Dell users,
Apologies if this is not the best place to ask this question, I didn't know where else to ask. I shipped a refurbished Dell back to an authorized reseller, who said it was damaged by USPS' shipping. 
The seller identified the need to replace the following:
- a full bottom chassis and palm rest. It may also need a new keyboard/mousepad.
- There may be additional internal damage and the warranty is now void.
Luckily, I had insured it with USPS, but they want an "estimate of the repair costs from a reputable dealer." The seller could not put a price on it and only identified the damage he could see.
It was a 2017 DELL XPS 13 9360 7TH GEN I7-7560U 16GB 512GB SSD INFINITY QHD+ TOUCH 640 10 that was refurbished and had NBD warranty till May 2018. I bought it on ebay. Never again.
I don't have the laptop since I shipped it back to seller, so I can't really get an estimate...any one able to estimate damage this way or able to point me in right direction? I am in Los Angeles but laptop is in PA!
Thanks in advance!

I have to replace the mother board on a laptop. I already have the new part, and I'm debating whether to try it myself or bring it in to a professional. Can anyone give me an estimate of how much the labor would be at a computer repair place? The University Computer Store will charge between $75 and $100, which is probably enough for me to attempt it myself. Any chance I could find an independent store that would do it for $50 or less?

Answer:Estimate for Mother Board Labor

You already have the new motherboard? If so, I would just do it's just a matter of positioning it right, and plugging everything back in the right way. Write down where everything is before you take it apart, and it should be fairly easy. Unless actual work has to be done to the motherboard, like replacing capacitors or something, it's not worth paying $75-$100, not even $50.

Hi I'm just wondering how much I could sell this computer for, I bought it for 650 pounds around 2010 November. Just wanting to know what your estimates would be on it now.
Here are some pictures of my specs.
I am getting Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit tonight, so I can use my specs to the full potential.
I would like an honest price on this computer on how much its worth, would be great if you could give me an estimate.
Thanks, Alfred.

Answer:Need an honest review on this computer and an estimate please

I don't know about others but your first image would not download and the second one merely shows that the graphics is a Radeon HD4600. Maybe if you posted the specs instead of putting them in an image we could give you an answer. When you bought it did the price include the monitor, keyboard, speakers and mouse? Are you selling it with those items?

Me and my friend set up a software company recently,
and my first project is to develop a software for my friend's company,
the project was estimated to be completed in 1 month,
but I took 3 months to complete the project.
After reviewed my project development progress,
I realize that root cause is due to I didn't analyze the project in detail,
so I only estimate total man hour required base on
project main features instead of detail functions.

Few days ago, he gave me another project, and this time I wanted to
analyze the project in detail before I start to estimate total man hour required,
but when I look at the requirement specification, I think it will take me
2 to 3 weeks just to analyze the project. I can charge the analysis fee
because my friend is the shareholder.

If I get a project from a customer, and if the project may take
me 2 to 3 weeks to analyze the project in detail, how can I charge my
customer for the detail analysis?

In current software development market, software company can not start project
before customer agree on the estimated man hour. If I do not take 3 weeks to
analyze a project in detail, I may end up with losing money due to under
estimate the project. If I take 3 weeks to analyze a project in detail,
but the customer think the project is too expensive,
and do not want to proceed, my time will be wasted.

Answer:How to estimate software development cost and charges?

You often see companies who charge for a quote - and take the charge off the bill if the customer goes ahead with the job.

if they don't go ahead then you get the fee for the quote.

my t500 is completely unsable now, the hinges got stuck somehow and the metal broke n crumpled apart when I moved the lid and it's overheating and shutting down like mad. I filled for extended warranty insurance through visa, and they needed a written estimate on repairs.  anyone know where to get a estimate? I called lenovo warranty and they told me probably $1200 if they need to replace the system board but have no idea unless they see it. I called the warranty providers on the, no luck they seem to only provide service to big businesses and in warranty units.

I have an HTC One M8 running Windows and love the phone and OS, but, in order for me to stay with it, I really need some of the IOS apps to be made available otherwise, regrettably, I'll have to switch back.

My son threw a toy into it and now the screen is shattered as you can see. I wonder if anyone could give a a repair estimate or suggest where to get one.
There are no electronics repairs shops close to where I live and I don't want to pay for shipping sending it to ASUS. I need estimate for my insurance.

Answer:Repair estimate for ASUS PG278q monitor

In most cases the repair would be more than replacement and the vale for ins. would be the replacement price being that screen is most of the cost of it. Other than that Asus would be the only real option.

Can you tell me how to calculate average Download finished time for download? For example i have 1GB file and my connection is 512Kbps so how do i calculate this?

Answer:How to calculate estimate Download finished time?

512 kbps / 8 is about 64kb/s in real download speed.. but that is theorical.. and if you're constant on that speed... let's say 60kb/s you will download your file in

5hrs 25mins

But there's an easier way, download the file and you'll see on the browser the estimated download time... much much easier than do the number for yourself

Hey guys, the right hinge on my Lenovo G570 is broken. Right now it's pretty much lifting the top casing of my computer and my monitor is sitting askew. I tried calling Lenovo to get an estimate, but they told me I had to send it in and pay for shipping as well as an $80 dollar processing fee. I'm just curious as to how much parts and labor might come out to. What have you guys recieved for estimates? 

Answer:Lenovo G570 hinge repair estimate

hi yutxz,
Welcome to the Forums.
The repair cost will depend on the parts that are needed to be replaced. If for example, the hinge, and the plastic part that holds the hinge (base cover) are broken, the service centers to replace the following parts:
Base Cover (for models with HDMI) 
Base Cover (for models without HDMI)
LCD Hinge
So say you have the hdmi base cover+hinge model+one hour labor (say $25), then you're probably looking at a $85 quote (shipping / taxes excluded). Note that this is just an example. The reason why the tech. ask you to send it in is because the person in charge of the repair needs to see the damage and quote the necessary parts for the repair.
Hope this gives you an idea.

No idea what has caused this. All battery apps give the same wrong estimate of time remaining. Over 6 days when it should be something like 1 Day xHours. The battery discharge rate seems to behave as normal percentage wise.
I've just updated it to Windows 10.0.14393.321 - still the same.
I've done a soft reset (power + volume down button) - still the same.
What else can I do? Is the OS dumb? Is the battery screwed?
The phone is under a month old.
p.s the battery gets quite hot under any semi intensive load but this seems to be a very common trait of the phone.

Is there a tried and true method for estimating internet bandwidth requirements for business use? I would assume that you need to take into consideration what types of applications that they use that will be going out to the internet and how much bandwidth you would expect them to use, but what about everything else? Is the WAN filtered? Will the users have access to YouTube? When is it appropriate to use a connection that is not symmetrical and is symmetrical up and down really necessary? If users will be making remote desktop connections then is it important to have a healthy upstream connection?

Those are just some of the questions I can think of.

Answer:How do you estimate bandwidth requirements for a small business environment?

Is this all theoretical? Best is to monitor current usage and go from there.

If you're doing remote desktop connections, yes, you will want a decent upstream link. Also consider if you will be doing WAN offsite backups. That is probably the biggest requirement of all.

How many users?

I'd say for a small office of 15 or so, as long as it's just general usage, I'd be pretty satisfied with a 10/10 connection. Cable internet sucks, try to get ethernet/fiber if you can.

My Thinkpad Yoga 260 shipping is delayed for already more than a week beyond initial estimate. I called up the Digital River representative multiple times, never getting any sort of information on how long it is going to take. All they could tell me is that some part is still unavailable in manufacturing, but not even which precise one, or how long the delays would be. They always promise to send info per e-mail, and then send me an e-mail that contains absolutely no information beyond "well we're having some delay with shipping this thing" (no surprise here! I noticed). Do you guys even speak with each other?? After an already ample initial estimate of 12 days and then a completely unexplained delay of another 7+ days, I'm starting to be fed up with this. I would already be happy if someone could just tell me how long this ordeal is still supposed to take until it is even shipping - I'm not even asking for the arrival date at this point.Anything more than the "I have absolutely no clue, am I even working at the same company??" impression I am getting from the Digital River people would be useful. Also if there is a part missing with my specific configuration, if someone would tell me precisely which one I might also settle for another option if someone had bothered to ask. Get your stuff together, Lenovo. Seriously..

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga 260 shipping delayed for already more than a week beyond initial estimate

First, I cannot give you a good answer, but I will say that the high-end parts seem to be the ones that are often in short supply on new products. I can see that on the first "sales" page, it says processor "up to 6th gen core i5", but the configuration page does list the i7 option. That may be just a typo, but it may indicate something. I know that ,in general, 16gb DDR4 memory chips are in short supply, but often computer makers get them faster than end users can get them as aftermarket parts. What kind of configuration did you get?

Hi all,

I'm currently looking into buying a new server for the company I'm interning at. The issue is I'm somewhat clueless about IT in general, so I'm concerned an offer I've received for a Dell PowerEdge T430 server which I've pasted below is a rip off. The price I've been quoted is $4020,10.

Here are the specs:
"Server Dell PowerEdge T430 8B, (1)*Intel Xeon E5-2630v4 Processor (2.2GHz, 10C, 25MB, 8.0GT/s QPI, 85W), 32GB (2x16GB) 2400MHz RDIMM, PERC H330, DVD+/-RW, (2)*1TB SATA 6Gbps 7.2k 3.5" HD Hot Plug (up to 8x3.5"HDD), Broadcom 5720 GbE Dual Port on board, IDRAC8 Ent., (2)*750W, No Rails, 3y NBD"

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Also if it helps the initial uses of the server would be secure data storage, hosting an email service for 12 staff members, and if possible setting up a hybrid disaster recovery solution, for instance linking the service to a cloud based service like Microsoft Azure.

If anyone out there can suggest a cheaper and viable alternative that would be ace!

Best regards,

I have been planning to order a Thinkpad X230 and have been watching the ever-changing prices on Lenovo's site. Is anyone else getting as tired of the daily changes as I am?  In the past few days I have seen the same configuration priced at a range of between $850-$969 and even one that was nearly identical at over $1000 - supposedly 15% off! Each time I try to work with a rep through chat I am told to put the item into a cart and save and then possibly they can offer deals. I am also upset that choices on warranty used to be available - no more. Now they tell me that the base warranty is included and I can upgrade at a later date - but again, no real prices to work with. It used to be that there'd be a sale for a week or so - now they tell me deals are based on the number of "coupons" available and can end at any time. I am very disappointed with the purchasing experience and am really having doubts about buying direct from Lenovo. Thanks for listening to my venting! HLily

Answer:Is anyone else tired of price changes?

Another wierd aspect is that Lenovo products have exactly same price in all eshops over here. Is that called a competition ?

Question: Price Check!

I am wanting to sell my Voodoo5 AGP 64mb, but I don't know what a reasonable price would be to sell it for. I looked on ebay, and one guy was selling his for $60. Mine was bought two years ago and was used for about half a year. I still have the box and original drivers and book. It works fine and has nothing wrong with it, and its never been o/ced. What do you guys think?

Answer:Price Check!

I would sell it for about 40-50$, if you see his get a bid for 60$ reasonably quick, then you might want to try that as well but I dont think its worth it.

Question: Price my laptop

I am looking to sell my laptop. It is USED but basically BRAND NEW... MINT condition. My University gave it to me during my AS degree program for Information Technology. Used probably a dozen times. No wear... MINT.

Being that it was given (straight out of the box)... I have no NEW reference price to go by. I did, however, have to sign an agreement with the University that if I dropped out before obtaining my degree that I give it back or pay $1,599.00 for it. I'm sure that this was not the retail price though.

So here are the specs:

Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545 Series
2.10 gigahertz AMD A8-5550M APU with Radeon HD Graphics
Board: LENOVO 20B2000KUS 0B98401 Pro
Windows 8 PRO - updated to Win10
AMD Radeon HD 8550G [Display adapter]
ThinkPad Display 1366x768 [Monitor] (15.3"vis)

What do ya'll think I could get for it. Like I stated before... it's MINT.
Thanks in advance.

Why does the price change everytime i go to spec our the exact same machine? Ordered the x61t and noticed when I build it today it is about $100 cheeper that what I bought.  Do they [Lenovo] do anything if you call in?  although would it be worth the hour and a half of my life i will never get back?  

Answer:Price changes every time

in my experience, if the machine has not yet shipped then sales should be able to adjust the price.   i recently had an outlet order adjusted after i received it because the price dropped $200.

Hi JayJayC and welcome to Eightforums,

From your post I understand that you live in Europe. Well, as with almost every product that is being sold in Europe as well as in the USA the prices in Europe are far far far higher (>25% to be exact). In almost all cases the only thing you have to do is to change the $ sign for a € sign and you have the price in Europe. Which is, due to the currency change ratio's, approximately 25% higher.

Don't ask me why this is the way it is. I guess it has something to do with on of these options ==>
A) The USA manufacturers like to screw Europe
B) USA export taxes
C) Europe import taxes
D) Nelie Kroes (member of the EU parliament)
Since you live in Europe it is not possible to buy the product 'like you were in the USA'. So just get used to being screwed....

Like SunTzu said ==> "If you can't beat them, join them".

ps. Why didn't you buy an upgrade copy in the period october 2012-january 2013? It was only $30 of €30 (= $40) then. That's how I got my copy .

Thank you

Answer:I need an advise for price in US

$100 is a good price, but it really depends on what you need it for, how often you will be printing, and the price of consumables (ink).
