I need help!

by Death50000 / December 31, 2006 5:00 PM PST

Ok, so I got this MP3 player for Christmas (don't know what it's called, but it's pretty old anyways, only 1GB...), and I somehow lost the charger that you plug into the player and the USB port on the back of the PC. Is it possible in any way, without spending 10 million years looking for it, that I can aquire another one for free? What if I don't have the receipt? I need help Sad .

No. You are probably gonna have to either find it yourself, or buy another one directly from the manufacturer for about 20 bucks. However, if it is really old, it might be disconinuted....in that case..your screwed

Can u check the player name anyway?

On the back, it says:

Venturer
Digital Audio Player

That's all. Somebody said that I can go to Wal-Mart and ask for a mini USB cable. Is that possible?

So going there won't hurt. It may not help either, unless their electronics staff is somewhat knowledgeable. They would need to be able to look at it and be able to tell you whether or not it's a mini a or b receptacle, unless you can tell yourself. You probably won't get it for free, though, but it should cost that much.

From your information, I still can't tell what model it is - you don't have an owner's manual???

OK, maybe not 20. But seriously, the manufacturers always raise the price like crazy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
