Video Game Repair/video games


Hi. Its nice to meet you. I just hope you can help me.
Ok. Background:my computer is down. It needs a hard drive I think. But now my daughter wants to fix it so she can play games. She has a dvd player that will do movies but not the games. So what I need to know from you is what, if anything , I can get without fixing the computer. When the computer was working she would always read and then complain all day about the bad news. Do they even make something to play games on?

Hi Joyce.

While this is normally outside of my area of expertise, I would suggest purchasing a video game system, like an XBox One, Playstation, or Nintendo. Those are game-based dedicated systems that your daughter can play games on.

Hope this helps!

I can answer questions regarding coin-operated arcade game questions down to the logic board. Error codes, erratic operation, dead boards, I can help with them all. I can help with video monitors on a very limited and basic level only.


I have spent nearly 20 years as an avid arcade collector, and spent nearly 10 of those years as the lead tech for a large arcade operator, doing work for manufacturers and other coin-operated amusement companies around the globe. I maintain a good sized collection of arcade games, as well as a large inventory of spare parts for a wide range of arcade machines.
