PC card reader broken - Can anything be done?

My (secondhand) Sony Vaio PCG-V505DC2 laptop's PC Card slot isn't recognizing any cards put in it (I've tried three, all of which I know work). I know it's not a driver problem because all of the cards worked until recently, when they started working only intermittently before stopping working at all. Can this be fixed in any kind of cost-effective way, preferably by myself? [more inside]

What's a fair price to pay for a broken dryer repair?

Our gas dryer stopped working. When the "Start" button is pressed the machine hums, but won't tumble. Reading this leads me to believe the problem is with the motor. Any idea what a fair price is to get such a problem serviced is? We're trying to evaluate the relative value in having this repaired (the preferred option) vs. possibly buying a new (or used) unit. I've never dealt with this type of repair before and want to avoid getting ripped off, of course.

How can I recover data from a broken hard drive?

I recently purchased a 250 GB Western Digital Caviar SE hard drive. It's a internal hd and I foolishly thought it would be ok sitting on my desk hooked up through a ide-usb cable. It also has a power cable which runs down the side of my desk. Well long story short it fell off of my desk due to someone snagging the power cable and now my computer will not recognize it. I have a lot of important data on it which I would really like to recover. Any ideas?

Where can I find a replacement for a discontinued Ikea lampshade?

Ikea doesn't have a stock discontinued items, and eBay and Googling turn up nothing. Pictures are inside. [more inside]
