  • HP Hard Drive/BIOS issue?

    Here's what is happening.

    I've made no changes/updates or new installations to my computer. I was searching the internet when it started to freeze. I couldn't do anything I so did a hard reboot. My HP pavillion desktop automatically did a CHKDSK and then I get a message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media..."

    My hard drive is not found by BIOS once, but then when I leave the tower completely unplugged for 5-10 minutes and restart it is found. I've tried to restart windows normally and it goes back to the booting BIOS screen and freezes. I've tried doing the repair option and it freezes.

    I've done the smart test and the HDD is not found.

    I've switched the wires from the cd drive to the hdd with same result.

    This is an 8 month old computer I purchased brand new.

  • Resident and Per Capita Tax?

    My friend lives in PA and her husband gets the School district resident and per capita tax notice that he has to pay. They live with her parents and her dad also pays it, but her mom and my friend don't get one.

    I'm assuming they think her husband is a renter or a homeowner so both "head of households" get one. 2 people in one house shouldn't pay this tax, right? Just the actual homeowner. And if that isn't the case, then why didn't she and her mom get one?

  • Dialed a number and the phone disconnects without ringing?

    I received a phone call on my landline and when I picked up the phone disconnected right away. I figured they hung up on me so I called back and as soon as I dialed the number the call disconnected. I tried 2 more times with the same result. I then tried calling the same number with my cell phone and the same thing happened, the call ended as soon as I dialed the number. The number is unlisted or is a cell phone so I can't look it up. Any ideas?

  • 2002 Dodge Neon Stalling?

    I have a 2002 Dodge Neon with just under 130,000 miles on it. We were considering just selling it but I'd like to have a second car so I want to fix it up.

    She stalls when I'm stopped at a red light but this only happens once or twice a month. She does hesitate like she wants to stall (hah, I know I say she & not "it") The oil & tranny fluid is fine but other than that I don't know what else to check. The check engine light is not on, the engine runs pretty high (around 2500rpm) when cold, runs around 1500rpm when driving (2000 when maintaining speed around 60). When she stalls I can turn it over right away, so I figured it is just because she is cold.

    I know I can't get a definite answer but any suggestions would be great! I plan on taking her to a shop but I'd like to go in having an idea what I'm looking at. Thanks in advance!

  • 1950's GE Wall Refrigerator - Estimate?

    I have a vintage GE combination wall mounted refrigerator that I am having trouble finding a price for. It is turqouise/aqua colored and works great. I've done online research and it appears there are a lot of buyers but I can't figure out how much to ask for. I put a link to the original ad for this refrigerator so you can see a pic. Thanks in advance for any info!

  • HVAC & Refrigerator/Cooler help?

    I have a Summit SCR1300 reach-in cooler that needs a new compressor. The model number on the compressor is GL90TE. I've found that this was manufactured and produced for Denmark and am having trouble finding a compressor that will fit my cooler. Does anyone know of a universal compressor or where I could purchase one that will fit? How about a price range? Thanks!

  • Pursue degree in information technology?

    I'm looking into getting an online degree at either Lincoln Tech online or Kaplan in Information Technology with emphasis on network administration. Here's why: I want to be that IT person when a company hires a new employee and sets up the new email accounts, troublshoots computer crashes and connects large telecommunication companies' computers to each other.

    Here's my question: I don't have advanced computer knowledge, I don't know what A+ is or C++ but I want to learn. Is getting a 2 year (then 4 year) degree online in this field realistic? Am I going to be the computer n00b with a degree and not be able to get a job?

  • Can you help us find a game?

    My husband is insisting that I find a "dork" game that we can play together.

    He wants an MMO-esque game which is fine with me, but it doesn't really matter. We like Marvel Ultimate Alliance, he likes the Star Wars role playing game, D&D, Diablo that sort of thing. I like anything that is interactive and customizable (like my character, surroundings etc.)

    We would like it to be online, but either Wii, PS2 or DS is fine also. He was looking into Guildwars too but I don't think I like it. I don't know, any suggestions? MUST be 2 player and can be online with other ppl. Thanks!

  • 8 month old cries and stops breathing?

    When my 8 month old gets really upset, he stops breathing when he is crying. He lets out a big scream, and then he breaths in almost gasping like, and doesn't stop breathing in until he can't anymore, then holds his breath. He keeps his mouth wide open like he wants to scream, his face starts to turn blue and his eyes water, then he screams again. He just did it for the longest time today, probably 5-10 seconds. I've tried blowing in his face, in his mouth and usually it works, but today it didn't. And he only did it because I sat him down on the floor. I didn't know what else to do so I started cpr-like smacking his back (like they teach you in cpr class), and he finally took a breath. Any suggestions?

  • Where can I get used circuit boards?

    I'm looking for used circuit boards of all shapes and sizes, but don't know where to find them. Ones that don't work anymore and are going to be thrown away (recycled) are favorable. Any ideas?

  • Issues with digi cam photos?

    I have a Nikon Coolpix 4200, and recently when I load the pictures onto my computer, some of the pictures look almost morphed. Some of them have been broken straight down the middle, so for instance one side of a face is an inch higher than the other. Some of the others have a large grey or yellow box taking up almost the entire photo. The color changes, it is grey, blue, yellow etc. The odd thing is, when I load them into Picasa they look completely normal at first (as they do on the camera) but then once Picasa is finished loading, they re-morph. If I use another picture program, they look bad from the start. I hope I am making sense, and that you can make sense out of this for me!

  • I can't sleep in bed!?

    When I was around 7 months pregnant I started having extreme sciatic pain along with the pelvic pain, where it felt like my bones were rubbing together. Eventually it got so bad I couldn't lay down in any position without tears from the pain. I started sleeping in a recliner, which helped so much. Now, my son is 7 weeks old, and I still have the same exact pain when I try to lay in bed, though now the middle of my back hurts more than anything. I cannot lie flat whatsoever. When I lay on my side it feels like my spine is crunching! So I'm still in the recliner, and I really miss my bed & my husband. Please help!

  • Please help me find this song!!!?

    There was a song in the mid 90's by a girl named Reis. The spelling could be wrong but i'm positive this was the name. This was her only song, I CANNOT remember the song at all. All i remember is that I LOVED her sooo much. I searched everywhere and cannot find her. Can anyone help? She only went by Reis, had a video on MTV and VH1 for a short while in the mid-90's. Thanks so much!

  • My front tires shake when driving?

    I have an 02 Dodge Neon, and when I'm driving, (it usually happens anywhere up to 60 mph), the front end shakes VERY badly. Its not just a rattling shake, the whole car moves and it makes a really loud vibrating sound. I haven't had an alignment in a while, or anything of the sort. I probably should, but with this info, does anyone have any suggestions to what might be the problem other than " go to a mechanic?" Much appreciated!

  • Why do I suffer, because other people are to lazy to work?

    So I live in a city that is overrun by slum. No particular race, no particular anything really. Just slum. We live in the suburbs. I found a really nice house right on the outside of town, and was turned down to buy it, because someone with H.U.D was going to buy it. And I was going to pay normally, with a mortgage and everything. So a poor person, who doesn't want to hold a job, gets welfare, food stamps, disablitity for no apparent reason, and housing assistance, can get a house. But a full-time working mother, who pays taxes and donates, can't? WHY ARE THERE SO MANY UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE, LIVING OFF OF MY PAYCHECK????????

  • Labret piercing & deteriating gums??

    I've had my labret pierced for about 5 years now, and my lower gums on my 2 lower front teeth have deteriated. They slowly have worn down until there is almost nothing left! Is there any special backing I could use instead of metal? Maybe plastic or something? Has anyone else experienced this? I really don't want to take it out, so I am looking for an alternative.
