Clock won't tick


Have reset the clock at least a dozen times over the past month, but everytime I use the computer, it shows incorrect time. I'm concerned about automatic updates, etc., that depend on the performance of the clock to send me updates. How can I fix it?

I'm happy


Bare bones unit. Works well. Looked inside before plugging it in, and found the serial plug out of the socket. No big deal there. Noted the manufacturing date of the components was less than a year old. Wasn't expecting to get a copy of the OS, or a...

Great NOT working value...


It's not the 1st time I buy off lease pc. With windows XP support being dropped by Microsoft decide to upgrade. To my surprise the system would not work. :-( Careful!!

great pc for the price


This pc has no problem playing any games it may be a business pc but I use it for gaming

The video card is very hard to get out, as the back pci-e 16x clip (because I couldn't even see it) is so close to the card

Great deal. Got here fast.


Got here really fast!Bad news though. After I installed much of the software to personalize it, I realized something is wrong with the sound. It has none.Something clicking inside too. Possibly a fan rubbing on something? Not really an issue compared...

Fro $125 you can't beat this deal.

Faster then you think! Great PC for young kids or adults that just surf and don't need to process large amounts of data. It's designed to be a work horse

CD/DVD player only. You'll need to upgrade the drive to burn CD/DVD
