3. Shopping Cart & Checkout Questions
Q. What is a shopping cart?
A. The shopping cart is the term we use to describe the system that records the items you click 'BUY' on. You can see what is in your shopping cart by clicking on 'Cart' button at the top of each page.
When the shopping cart screen comes up you will be shown what you have selected to buy and the quantities. You can check to see if everything you want is in the list and that the quantity is correct for each item. If you change your mind and want to remove an item form the shopping basket then change the quantity of the item to 0. If you want more than one of a particular product then change the quantity for that product to the number you want.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must press the 'UPDATE' button after changing the quantities of any item, otherwise the changes WILL NOT take effect.
After you press 'UPDATE' the screen will update to include the changes you have made.
Q. How does the shopping cart remember what I have chosen to buy?
Q. I am getting a message telling me TXcessSurplus.com wants to write a cookie, what do I do?
Q. I clicked 'Add To Cart' for another item I want, but the cart only shows the last item I added, what's wrong?
A. You probably have cookies disabled in your browser settings, you need to enable cookies if you want to buy from this store or any other online store.
4. Technical Questions
Q. What is the purpose of the recovery partition?
A. Computers that we ship have an authorized Microsoft Windows Operating System installed. Some may include a recovery reinstallation partition option that will show up on the boot screen. The regular Windows partition will boot by default. Do NOT choose the recovery option unless an Microsoft Windows OS reinstall is needed. If a Reinstall is chosen and accepted, then all drivers and applications will need to be reinstalled. If you inadvertently enter into the reinstallation operation, wait until the install Windows screen comes up and then click the "X" in the upper right hand corner of the window. When the "Install Windows" cancellation box pops up, click on yes and allow the system to reboot. Select Windows 7 or Windows 8 from the boot screen. Failure to follow this procedure correctly can cause your system to become in-operable and is NOT considered a warranty repair incident.
We do everything we can think of to make it easy for you to find and purchase a computer system from this store. But if you ever have any questions or concerns about your order, just contact Customer Support or call us at at 1-512-671-6677.
