Where can I buy an affordable computer?

so I have a bit of a computer problem. I have a VERY old emachines that was running really well and has lasted me a long time. T6209 is the model version. anywyas, last year I added a gb of ram and a new 7600 Nvidia video card, and its been running very well. At the beginning of the summer I was experiencing problems with it freezing while I would play WoW, so I tried all the solutions that Blizzard suggested to me and the only thing was to tkae off the side of the tower and have a fan blowing in it constanty…which sucks, and im still doing it now. Recently, these problems have began to return, but worse. Now, when I turn off my computer, I can’t turn it back on…everything will turn on except the monitor, the green light just blinks like normal but no picture. I managed to get it to turn on about 2 times over this weekend. So today I couldn’t get it to turn back on after it was on standby(since I put it on standby for the night and it stays like that until I get home from school). So I tried replacing hte cord(from the monitor to the comjputer), that didn’t work. I tried a new monitor (my moms), that didn’t work. I tried a new monitor with my cable and my moms cable, nothing has worked. I dont know what else to try. Now antoher big probelm comes in of either taking it to a computer technician(which costs $$ that I dont have and that my mom doesn’t have either right now) So even if I have enough money to take it to a technician for them to tell me whats wrong, they will charge me for taking it in and getting it fixed, which I probablyh wont have enough money for anyways. So should I try buying a new computer…which is my main question:

Where can I buy an affordable computer???

It NEEDS to be able to run WoW smoothly…so I need a decent amt of ram and an OK graphics card.

I have heard of these pay monthly things for buying computers, like on TV and stuff…but I don’t know how that works and im not sure if I could afford it. But mainly I need a new computer and an affordable one…not a top of the line but one that can run WoW, thats all I need.

Also, do you think that I could just buy a brand new monitor and maybe that would work? im just not really sure what the problem is…

/sigh… So if anyone could give me some ideas it would be greatly appreciated <3


Answer #1

I’m going through the same problem and I know it’s because of a fried video card, so if you like your computer, you could try just buying a new viddeo card, and if it still doesnt work right or how you’d like, then you could buy a new computer and then you’ll have an extra video card for when the one in it fries.

Answer #2

yeah, I thought it was something wwith the video card. They aren’t too expensive thats not bad. I’ll just see if a friend has a spare one I could use to just check see if thats definatley the problem, then if it is then I’ll just buy a really nice new one…hoping that my power supply can handle it

Answer #3

I would definitely get a new computer if I were you. I would try looking around for computers at Wal-Mart, Best buy, Cirket City, Office Max, or Staples. They have top of the line computers that are brand new. I know all the places I mentioned have all the brand name computers. I know, I purchased my computer at Staples. I don’t remember how much it cost though but, I love my computer. I have a laptop which is an HP and, well it has its minor problems but, I don’t have too many major problems with it. I think HP computers are great. You just have to choose what’s the best for you. I hear Dell is good, Acer, Mac, Apple, and others. If your computer is worn out, along with your monitor, get a new one. Just take a look around at the stores I mentioned and I’m sure they’ll have a computer you could aford. I don’t blame you that getting a computer fixed costs money. Good luck and I hope you do buy yourself a new computer that will do what you want it to do.

shamboywhateveryournameis: here’s a little tip that will make you a touch less annoying:

“thoroughy” is actually spelled “thoroughly” in english…


“your” should be spelled “you’re” when you’re talking about the words “you are”.

work on it.
