It's possible that your computer froze during sleep. First, unplug the power cord, (with the cord removed) press the power button for 10-20 seconds. PS: You will lose any unsaved data prior to sleep mode. Let me know if this doesn't resolve your problem, might be something major.

Your coin battery that powers the memory system of your camera may be failing. This battery keeps your settings and powers your on board computer. Do not confuse this with your picture battery, as that only powers the lens and picture taking ability. The coin battery holds the program. See page 38 of your manual "Replacing the Date/Time battery."

Power surge on usb hub port in compaq nc 6120


Yeah--I've seen that before and perhaps you can check it out by unplugging all USB devices and restarting the computer. If you still get that message, go into your control panel and under device manager remove all the USB devices. Restart the computer and let it find the devices again. If the problem persists, you have a motherboard issue. Might be OK, but if you can isolate the particular hub that is giving you the problem, avoid using it.

Message usb powersurge


A usb power surge occurs when a usb device is drawing or providing too much power to a port. I would recommend replacement of such device before continueing. To trouble shoot what it is unplug all usb devices, start the computer, then plug devices in one by one.

Hi

Disconnect the monitor from the tower and then turn on the monitor.
If u get a msg like no input signal or check video cable then the monitor is fine. If this is the case, it could be a problem with the tower or the cable.

Power outage last night. Deleted all saved voicemail messages. when turned on - machine says "no massages" How do I retrieve lost messages?


I'm sorry there isn't. Answering machines like this have very little ROM memory. After a powersurge and outage like last night, it wiped the whole memory chip. You can try there support page. It's actually pretty good. http://telephones.att.com/telephones_ui/support/index.cfm
