Display Issues?

I have a year old Toshiba Satelite M45 latpop (a month or two out of warranty) that is having pretty severe screen issues. All of a sudden, I turned it on today and the colors are somehow inverted... what was blue before is now red, what was white is now black. I am running Windows XP Home. I've tri...

No. They used to have an Ebay offer that did not require a credit card, but as of now all of the offers do require a credit card. However, there are numerous reputable companies like AOL, Blockbuster etc which means there is zero risk of your financial info getting loose, especially considering that...

They accept free email accounts. Easy enough, especially considering the stakes.

Free iPods - Not A Scam

I'm not sure if this is widely known about in this forum, but Freeipods.com is a website that promises a free iPod to any person that signs up, completes an offer, and gets 5 of their friends to do the same. The website makes ~50 dollars every time somebody completes an offer, and so your offer plus...

Crashed Laptop

I have an older laptop that just crashed. In the process of installing a Windows patch, it asked to restart but then never booted back up. Instead it went into an endless cycle of going to the Windows loading screen, then restarting again and again. The computer has no CD drive, but it does have an ...
