    computer is kaput


    To all those asking if i got it fixed i haven't i still have yet to give the one person on here a chance to try at it but ive had two computer people look over it now and both have said my mother board is done im not sure what the one person did but the second i was there he opened it up and couldnt even get the mother board to throw out an error code he checked all the connections replaced the cmos battery he said he could put a fresh install of windows 8 but if theres no error codes coming from the mother board then it false hope to think that that will do anything so pretty much i have a giant paper weight or a really loud hdmi monitor ( as the model of computer they have an issue when your on hdmi that the volume will not adjust so on hdmi is stuck at 50 volume level no matter what... yay

    Please, report back your status when done. I am curious if you got it fix & how you got it fixed (Step by step if possible). As, I said above I have an All-in-one Dell different model. Right now, I have totally stopped using windows 10 until I see what happens with your computer.
    refer to my updated post unfortunately its not good news if i were you i would stick to the windows version the computer came with

    @angrycompowner

    How long after you upgraded to windows 10 did it fail, rightaway or after updates or few months later?

    If you can get a technician to prove that the operating system caused your motherboard to fail. You might be able to do legal action. I am not a lawyer. I do not know anything about Canadian laws or regulations. I would check with a lawyer.

    Agreed, unless there were a rash of people who could prove an OS destroyed hardware.

    @caperjack

    Does Canada have something similar to what U.S. calls small claims court? Doesn't Canada have consumer or merchantability law? Does Canada have a consumer complaint division or divisions? Here in the U.S. we have state Attorney Generals, some states added a consumer protection agency division. Then we have the Federal Trade Commission which also has a consumer complaint division. Then we also have the BBB which can be of help sometimes.

    It is kind of ashamed, he is out $3,000 dollars for just a paperweight.

    yeah,i think we have all those options, ,good luck.

    To the OP-
    I have a 2 year old acer micro tower, giving to me by 2 so called tech guys[that what it says on the company's business card's] who work at a local computer store ,,they told the owner it was a dead harddrive and had motherboard issues ,they sold the owner a new one ,it took me 20 min or less to get it to boot to media and install win10 on a new ssd drive ,I now use it as one of my main computer ..issue was lack of uefi bios knowledge

    moral of the story ,not all people being paid to fix computer know what they are doing ,,
