I went to start my DELL desktop computer today, but I could not get past the initial DELL logo on the screen. I could also see the boot options with the F# keys, but I could not use any because the computer was not responding to the keyboard input. I turned everything down and unplugged my external hard drives. Next the computer turned on, but I got a “missing NTDLR” message. What should I do next? What was the problem in the first place?

I am experiencing some worrying issues with my Corsair Vengeance M90 Gaming Mouse. The LED logo on its back does not light up anymore, and only two LEDs that function are profile 1 and 6, but only together. Right now I can only use it as a regular mouse (right and left click, drag and move) and nothing else. Everything is updated, I have unplugged it and plugged it back, tried it on my laptop… nothing. What is going on? Is the mouse broken or is it a software problem?

The SD Card Reader on my XMG P306 Laptop is behaving weirdly. When I put the SD card in the slot, I see all the thumbnails of all the picture in the card with no issue. However, when I try to actually open a picture, copy it or interact with it in any way, I can’t. I get an error saying that there is no card in the system. Is this a problem of the SD card or of the Card Reader?

I had to replace the screen on my Acer Aspire One ZH9, but I could not find an exact spare because the original had a CCFL screen (backlit). I decide to settle on an LED screen (also backlit) and got the corresponding converter cable. The converter cable fits perfectly, but the new screen doesn’t work. I tried without cable as well, to no avail. I am at a lost to what to try next. Are there any avenues I can try? Could it be a software problem?

Hello. I own a Compaq 15-a003sa laptop, and I am experiencing some issues with the screen. Most of the time it works fine, but then suddenly lines appear all over it when I move the mouse. It doesn’t happen every day, but maybe 3 times a week. It still worries me, however. What could be the problem? What could I do to fix it?

What are the vitals safety precautions for an armature computer hardware engineer to take when building a computer motherboard? I am a third year student studying Compute Engineering and I would like to build a motherboard. Can I get a professional advice on what vital precautions I critically do have to take note of as I begin? Thank you.

I am trying to repair my aunt’s laptop, a Toshiba Satellite L500. The device seems to be in working order, except that the screen remains black. There is no response whatsoever. I tried to connect it to my desktop monitor, but to no avail. I tried to repeat the process after taking out the two RAM sticks, but the situation didn’t change. What should I try next? Is there any hope for it?

I was working on my Fujitsu Lifebook when I started noticing that the touchpad was not working properly. It started to lag, and the situation didn´t improve after restart. I tried plugging in my parent´s wireless mouse, but the computer does not even detect it. I am unsure what to do. What could the problem be? Is there a correlation between the two?

Hello. I want to update the RAM sticks on my Asus Rampage 4 motherboard. I am unsure of which of the following options will be better:

1.   Two 8GB sticks of RAM, thus allowing me the option of upgrading it further

2.   Four 4GB sticks of RAM, thus giving me a quad channel RAM,

Which option would you recommend? Are there many advantages to a quad core RAM? Is it even worth it to expand a 2x8GB RAM?

I am experiencing a weird issue with my internet browsers and mouse. Whenever I want to select a word or some text on either IE or Chrome, the mouse will refuse to do it. I can click links or interact with the browsers, I just can’t select any text. When I do it on any other program, the mouse selects text fine, just not on both my browsers. I tried restarting the computer, unplugging the mouse, searching for new drivers, reinstalling the mouse. Nothing. I am very confused. What could I try next?
