I can't plug the power cable into the power port!

I went to plug the power cable into the laptop as per usual and it would not push into the port. On closer examination, two "prongs" have appeared in the port which prevents the cable from being plugged in. Any ideas what on earth has happened and what I should do?

How to Fix a Polaroid LCD TV Screen


<p>A Polaroid LCD TV delivers its picture via DVD player or cable connection to your home or office. After setting up your device and using it, you might experience technical difficulties with power loss and picture quality. Navigating through a few steps of self-maintenance will have your Polaroid TV running smoothly again in little time. You can examine your TV's power cord for damage, rewire a DVD player connection, and adjust your Polaroid's backlight.<br /> Difficulty:Moderate <span>Instructions</span> <ol> <li> <ul> <li> <span></span> Turn your Polaroid around so that the back is facing you, as a first step in correcting a power loss issue. Examine the length of the power cord from the back panel of the Polaroid to the wall outlet for damage, such as tears or rips. Replace the cord, if you see damage. Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and inspect the metal receptors (prongs) for dirt. If the prongs are dirty, clean them with a dry cleaning cloth. Plug a separate electrical device into the outlet and turn it on to confirm that the outlet is performing correctly. Plug the Polaroid TV back into the outlet, and try again.<br /> </li> <li> <span></span> Twist the Polaroid TV's back panel towards you so that the connected cables and jacks are easily accessible to you. If you're experiencing problems getting a picture from your DVD player, inspect the connection of the audio/video cables to your "Composite In" jacks. There are three cables in a standard audio/video setup: a yellow cable, a red cable, and a white cable. Unplug all three cables from their jacks to reset the connection. Insert the yellow-tipped cable into the "Video" port, which is yellow-colored to make matching the cables easier. Insert the white-tipped cable into the "L" (left audio) port and the red-tipped cable into the "r" (right audio) port. Perform the same steps on the audio/video cable out ports of the DVD player, and try again.<br /> </li> <li> <span></span> Raise the TV's backlight level, if you're having trouble seeing the picture. Push the "Menu" button (located on your remote control), and the TV setup menu will appear. Use the navigation buttons located on your remote control to scroll to "Image," and push "Ok" -- located within the navigational buttons on your remote control. A list of options will be displayed, such as "Contrast," "Hue," and "Saturation." Choose "Brightness" from the options. Use the four-way navigation buttons to raise the brightness (make your screen brighter and more illuminated) or lower the brightness (make your screen darker).<br /> </li></ul> </li></ol>

Why is New Samsung computer battery not detected?


Step 1:
Computer Won't Recognize a Battery While desktop computers are plugged directly into an electrical outlet to obtain power, laptops rely on a battery and power cord in order to be charged. If your laptop suddenly stops recognizing this battery pack, however, it could jeopardize your ability to charge your computer and ultimately work on it at all.

Inspect the Battery With the battery unplugged, carefully examine your laptop's battery, both the battery unit itself and any cords or plugs attached to it. Make sure the battery's case is not cracked or damaged. Look for fraying cords and bent prongs on the plug. Any of these issues could cause internal damage to the battery itself, the cable or the plug, which could interrupt the flow of electricity between the battery or electrical outlet and your laptop. If your laptop is still under warranty, you may be able to get a free replacement for a damaged battery or cable. b> Check The Port b> Damage to the port on the back of your laptop the one into which you insert the power cord could cause your laptop not to recognize your battery or any cables attached to it. Turn off your laptop and turn it around so you have a clear view of this port. Using a flashlight to illuminate the port, inspect it for any dirt or debris that may have become jammed inside; gently remove any debris with a small cotton swab. A bent prong could also interrupt the circuit, making it difficult for the battery to transfer energy from the power cord to the laptop; straighten a bent prong using needle nose pliers. Avoid making invasive repairs, especially if your product is under warranty; any damage you do to the laptop in an effort to fix it could nullify the terms of your warranty. b> Wrong Kind Of Battery b> Some brands of laptops, such as Dell, will not recognize a battery that wasn't manufactured by the same company. To make sure that your battery is compatible with your laptop, consult your laptop's user guide for battery specifications (these will vary based on make and model of your laptop). b> Dead Battery b> Laptop batteries have a limited lifespan. After so many charges, they may be unable to transfer enough power from your electrical outlet to your laptop. When your battery reaches this point, a replacement may be your best option. b> Laptop Update b> Updating the "BIOS" on your laptop can help the unit better detect and recognize external hardware such as a battery. BIOS which stands for Basic Input/Output System assists in booting up your laptop, and helps run every function until you turn it off. Computer manufacturers release BIOS updates for their products routinely; these updates can be downloaded from the company's website as ".exe" files. Run and save this update on your laptop, then restart it to see if your laptop now recognizes the battery. Mac users can reset the laptop's System Management Controller (SMC). Apple reports that sometimes, otherwise unexplained errors pop up in the laptop's system, including problems with the battery's ability to charge. To reset the SMC, turn off the laptop and remove the battery. Hold down the "Power" button for five seconds and release before plugging the battery back in and turning the laptop on.

Hook up to home pc


Today's laptops and desktop computers are more user-friendly. As more people start use computers, operating systems, software and hardware accessories are coming with better instruction manuals and streamlined interfaces. Here are a few basic steps to hook up your computer no matter which brand you bought.

Connect the power cable to the back of the computer tower. The male end of this plug is often on the computer, but it is recessed into the casing. Once this power plug is connected, you don't want to plug it into an outlet until the entire computer is set up. Attach the monitor cables to the back of the monitor and then to the back of the computer tower. This cable will probably be the VGA type, which has a wide set of prongs in the middle and two screws on the outside. Be sure to twist the screws in to ensure the cable has a solid connection. Secure the monitor's power cable to the back of the monitor and then plug it into an outlet or power strip. Attach the mouse to the USB port on the back of your keyboard. The keyboard then plugs into another USB port on the back of the computer tower. Turn on the computer and the monitor.

If the computer powers up but the monitor doesn't display anything, make sure the VGA monitor cable is secured. If the status light on your monitor doesn't turn on, check the power cable connection. Check that the mouse and keyboard work once the computer turns on. Now you can hook up other devices, such as a printer or a web cam. A printer often can connect to a USB port and also may have its own power cable; a web cam usually just plugs into a USB or firewire port.

Someone gave me a wireless g router and im not sure how to connect it to my computer and modem?


First, since this router was used by someone else, you'll need to reset it. After you plug the power in, push in the little button on the back (you'll probably have to push it in with a pencil or pen). Hold it in for about 15 seconds until the power light on the front begins to blink.
Now you're ready to hook up the router. The router probably has 5 ethernet ports on the back. The ethernet cable that comes out of the modem goes into the WAN port on the router. This is the one port that is separate from the others. The computer has an ethernet cable that is currently plugged into the modem. Disconnect it from the modem and plug it into one of the 4 remaining ports on the back of the router.
Now the router is in the middle. Modem connected and computer connected.
If you have a cable modem, you'll need to unplug it for about 15 seconds and plug it back in. Trust me on this--you just have to do that. If the cable modem also powers your phone, you'll need to take the battery out of the modem and then put it back in.
Now turn on your computer. You should connect to the internet. If not, the router will need some setup, but unless I know more details, I can't help you. You'll just have to ask again.

500 gb passport beeps and wont recognize


This may be due to a lack of power. Unfortunately, the drive does rely on power from the laptop/PC. If you're using it with a laptop, try it on a desktop PC and plug it into a port at the back (the front USB ports are hubs and generate less power). Make sure you're using the original short USB cable (hopefully) supplied with the product.

When you initially connect it and you hold it in your hand, you may fell the drive spin up and then spin down, which is also a sign of insufficient power.

I have heard of this problem with the passport drives and this mostly solves it. If it does and you do need it for a laptop, then you would need a USB Y cable (2 type A to 1 mini 5). This provides power from 2 USB ports...

Hope this helps!

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.
