My lady is Japanese and naturally her Toshiba laptop is directly from Japan. The backlight died so we took it in for a supposed free tech inspection. Mark, the owner agreed to look at it to see what could be done. BIG mistake!! We had also asked to add 1Gb of ram. This is in addition to the 512Mb already installed. We got it back, five hundred dollars later and one stick of ram poorer. The creep kept a stick of ram and wouldn't give it back. He then charged us twenty dollars more than agreed upon for the ram that was installed. Like I said "Beware" when you are around 99 Eastchester Ave. in St. Catharines, ON. For what it's worth when I talked to the BBB this is not the first time Mark has pulled his shady deals.

Dude, both of your posts were within one minute of each other. Even if the dog looks into this, it will take longer than one minute.

I can't recall a time where the dog helped out with a mom&pop type computer "repair" store. But yeah, you got shafted.

Sorry, I got excited to finally vent. And the shafter is exposed. I might even call him up to tell him!
