Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook

Blank screen frozen

I turn on my computer and all I get is the the start up ring and it sounds like it is searching for a second, but then nothing....just a blank screen. I can't even use the mouse. I have tried to turn it off for a while and turn it back on but always the same result.

Insert your Mac install disk 1 into your macbook, and restart the mac. While powering on, hold down the "C" key to boot from CD. This will take you to the Mac OS X Reinstallation window. If you are able to enter this mode, then it's just a corrupted install, and you'll need to reinstall. If you cannot enter this mode, then there may be some hardware errors on your macbook.
Comment back on if that worked. If not, we'll try some other things.

When i turn on the computer it makes a single tone then 3 tones, then 2 tones and the screen becomes blank. How can i fix this problem?


What you describe sounds like a POST (Powr-On Self-Test) error code beep sequence. The POST is the initial system test your computer performs when you first turn it on. The code you describe MAY indicate a RAM memory problem, but codes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please check your documentation or check GOOGLE.

How do I fix my frozen e reader


Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive. Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working. All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated. An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated. A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode. Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button. Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds. Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen. Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod. Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it. Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons. Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen. Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it. Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again. Hope this helps.

The power turns on for the emachine T4892 and the windows sysmbol comes on for a second then screen is blank nothing I cant do anything on the computer its like frozen in time and my programs are in...


Sounds like the boot sequence for Windows is corrupt. If it has been slowing down over time it may be that on recent shut downs it has failed to write the correct start up sequence.

I would suggest trying to get someone to remove your harddrive and back up your files, before reinstalling Windows from scratch.

Blank display on apple ipod


It sounds like your Ipod is frozen.

You can reset it by holding the middle button and the button above it for 15 seconds. It should power down and then you can turn it back on.

Frozen Apple Logo


if itunes recognizes the phone use the restore option if not you need to perform a force recovery mode. to do this hold power and home screen buttons until the screen resets when it does keep holding the home screen button and plug in the phone to the computer after a few seconds itunes should see a phone in recovery mode and force you to do a restore. if that does not work you might have a hardware problem and will need to go to a store.

Motorola RAZR V3x Whiye screen problem


I have managed to fix the problem by doing a software update.
I stumbled across the solution..........I had the phone connected to the computer when I started it in the 'boot loader' screen as opposed to just turning it on. This time the computer recognised the phone was connected and through the motorola software update program I was able to update the software and the phone now works fine.
BTW I did lose all my address book, messages etc.
To start in the boot loader screen hold down the * + # + pwr keys all at once.
