Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I plug my tomtom into the computer all I get is a picture of the tomtom with cord, a hand holding the cord and a red X over the cord and it says "please wait". No matter how long I wait I don't get anything else. I would think that met that there was something wrong with the cord but is plugged in correctly.

Hi. My Emachines PC is having major problems. At first it wouldn't start, when you pressed the button on the middle of the computer it would light up, then read no signal, and shut off. When I unplugged it...


try this...
  • Unplug the power cord.
  • Remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Re-connect the power and attempt a boot.
  • Shut down, put the battery back in and you're good to go.

Tip

If your computer has a black screen and not booting to desktop


Normally if the computer has the black display then follow these steps:
1) disconnect the pwr cord form the back of the computer //
2) disconnect the printer and the internet cord//
3)hold the pwr button for 1 min and then release// this is called "pwr drain" when the pwr cord is disconnected//
4)connect the pwr cord and restart the computer and see if it boots or not.
5)if not then disconnect the pwr cord again and open the side pannel of the computer//
6)on the mother board you will find the RAM (MEMORY CARD) which will be approx 6 inch long", take out the card/s and plug the pwr cord and restart the computer//
7) if you get the beep sound then the mother board is ok and if you do not get the beep sound then the problem could be mother board//
8)if getting the beep sound then fix the RAM CARD properly and restsrt the computer// it shoul boot//
note** during all this process make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out when you put your hand inside the computer or else you can get power shock..

I lost my power cord for mine during a move and cannot find one online. Where can I get a power cord for this?


You should be able to get a cord at any "big box" store - Lowes, Best Buy, etc. Take a picture of the computer where the cord plugs in and take it with you to the store. Tell the clerk you need a power cord to fit this recepticle and show the picture. These are common cords for computers and other devices. Let us know how you fair.

How to install a power supply


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Unplug all electronic cords connected to the computer. At no time during the installation should any cords be connected to the computer. Remove the screws holding the computer cover case, and remove the cover case. Locate the computer power supply box, which looks like a large box out of which a bundle of wires run and connects to the power cord jack on the outside of the computer case. Unplug the power cables from the internal devices connected to it. Be careful not to damage any of the sensitive control boards or devices inside the computer, and be certain to remember--write it down if you need to--what devices will need reconnecting to the new power supply when you finish the installation. Unscrew the power supply from the inside of the computer case and remove it. Check the original power supply's red voltage switch for the correct setting. It should read 120 or 240 if you live within the United States. Confirm this setting as the correct voltage setting for your power outlets. Make sure your new power supply gets set to the correct voltage setting before you install it. If it cannot be set to the correct voltage, do not proceed with the installation or you may damage your computer. Return the new power supply and buy one that is compatible with the voltage requirements. Install the new power supply, reattach the screws that will hold it in the proper place inside the computer. Reattach the power cables that come from the new power supply to the devices that were connected to the old power supply. Make sure all of these connections are firmly in place before you turn the computer back on. Reattach the computer power cables and all the cords connected to the computer during normal operation, but do not close the computer case yet. Keep your hands clear of the inside of the computer case as you attach power cords and peripheral devices. Turn the computer on and observe the performance of the computer without touching anything inside. Do all the computer fans function normally? Does the computer operate as well as or better than before? If you feel that the computer behaves normally and you do not encounter any problems, turn the computer off, remove all the power cords and peripheral cables once more, and close the computer case. Then reattach the power cords and peripheral cables and begin using the computer. Check for errors if you encountered any problems starting the computer or if it would not start at all, unplug all the power cords and computer cables connected to the computer and look inside. Make sure that you connected all the correct power cables inside the computer securely and did not miss any. If you have confirmed this and the computer still doesn't start or operate normally, call your computer manufacturer or a professional computer repair shop for assistance completing the installation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvClS_M-09o&feature=watch_response_rev watch video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0udZ0Ky4Pk Hope this helps.

I unplugged all my dell tower plugs and forgot how to put them back


Alrighty, this isn't as hard as you'd think. First, look for the power cord - it goes from a wall outlet to the power supply on the tower, and has a plug that looks like this: benharris5_0.jpg
Once you plugged that in, next plug in your monitor. It will look like one of these three plugs: benharris5_1.jpg
Find that cord, and plug it in to the back of your computer. If there are multiple places you could plug it in, pick any one you want that is horizontal (don't pick a vertical slot unless you only have vertical slots, the horizontal slots take precedence over the vertical one(s) that might be built in to your motherboard)
Next, if your computer wasn't connected to the internet via Wi-fi, find a cord that looks like this: benharris5_2.jpg
Plug this in to it's slot (when done correctly, you should hear a nice little 'click').
Next, plug in your audio plugs; these look like regular headphone plugs. Green plug goes into green slot, red into red (if you have one), etc.
Next, plug in any and all remaining cords wherever they will fit. If it doesn't go easy, don't force it. There are probably a few that have the same kind of plug ends; it doesn't matter which slot they go in if they all have the same style plug, but with ONE EXCEPTION: If you have any plugs that are circular looking and are colored either purple and/or green, make sure that they go into the same colored socket (green into green, purple into purple).
At this point you should be able to turn your computer back on and use it normally. (If it doesn't, make sure the power is plugged in and any switches near where the power goes into the computer are in the 'on' or '1' position.)
Good luck!

Hp pavillion power problem


Perform the following steps, in order, until power is restored or it is determined that there is a hardware failure:
CAUTION: This product contains components that are easily damaged by ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC.
1. Disconnect all cables from the computer, including the power cord.
2. With the power cord disconnected , press the power button on the front of the computer for five seconds.
Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
NOTE: If the power supply fan makes an inconsistent grinding sound or stops and starts erratically, replace the power supply.
3. With the power cord removed, flip the red voltage selector switch to the opposite position. Wait about five seconds, and then switch the red voltage selector switch back to its original location. Ensure that the voltage selector switch is on the correct setting, 115V for North America.
Performing this step ensures that the voltage switch is engaged and set correctly for your country/region.
4. Remove all extension cords, power strips, surge protectors and any converters that remove ground. Plug the power cable directly to the wall outlet and test to see if the computer can turn on.
