Hello there, my name is Nick Branson and I am currently a visual communication design major at Eastern Washington University in my third year. If all goes according to plan, I will hopefully graduate in the spring in 2018. After college I hope to work as a web designer in Spokane, Washington, either as part of an existing company (such as Seven2 or 14Four) or as a freelance designer.
I have experience tinkering with electronics - primarily desktop PCs. I have constructed two computers from scratch (buying individual components and putting them together, installing the operating system, and setting the computer up) for personal use. I love electronics especially I'm constantly keeping track of the latest smartphone trends and news and I have what I would consider an above average knowledge of the computer part market. However, I'm not exactly a handy-man even though I do enjoy DIY projects when they're feasible for myself. If I have a choice between getting someone else to fix something and doing it myself, chances are I'm going to give it a shot on my own if it doesn't seem too complex or dangerous.

Answer to "Laptop doesn't to connect to the internet?"Being unable to connect to Wi-Fi is a common issue with the Lenovo B575-1450. First, before you do anything, make sure you have Wi-Fi enabled. On your ask bar on the bottom right corner f your screen, click on the internet icon, and make sure your Wi-Fi is enabled. If it is not, then maybe your drivers are out-dated. Consult the Drivers%20and%20Software&beta=false for the B575 for drivers for your respective operating system. Lastly, if neither of those solutions work, your Wi-Fi card may need to be replaced. For any other issues you have with the Lenovo B575, try taking a look at the troubleshooting page
Answer to "My key board wont respond?"Before you panic, make sure your keyboard is clean. Try wiping the space between keys or try to clean the keys with compressed air. It may also be a driver issue. Go into your computer's control panel and navigate to the device manager. If there is a yellow exclamation mark next to your laptop, then your drivers are defective. Lastly, if those fail, then your keyboard might be faulty. Consider replacing it. For more information: check out the Lenovo B575-1450 troubleshooting page
Answer to "My computer won't turn on, whats wrong?"If your computer isn't turning on, it could be that your battery or charger is deficient. To determine if the charger is deficient, try plugging it in. When you do, check if the charging indicator on the front of the laptop lights up. If it does not, make sure the charging cable is receiving power: try plugging it in to a different outlet. If the laptop still does not get charged after this, you might want to consider getting a new charger. If you are sure that your laptop charger is not broken, and you can turn the laptop on when it is plugged into the charger, try leaving the laptop on the charger of an extended period of time before unplugging it from the charger. If the laptop does not boot up after this, then your battery may be faulty. Consider replacing it.
