Check the connections, the power supply. Is the cpu fan working? Is the power supply working?
Be sure the motherboard is not touching the case.

I figured out, that the problem i caused by badly connected motherboard cable. I solved it by assembling the "display etc" part with the motherboard firts, then connecting the MB cable firmly, and finally put together with the "gun holder/battery closet" and secure it with screws

My friend has a 2001 Volvo C70 that drains the battery constantly. She has replaced 2 batteries and is on her second alternator. It runs when boosted but turn it off and its dead. What can the problem...

The unfortunate thing is diagnostics DOES TAKE TIME. You need to set aside the time to be accurate.

Something for sure is draining the battery and methodical diagnosis is the only way to get it figured out. IF there were an open in the alternator to battery circuit, the new alternator would be damaged.

Pull the interior light and radio fuses, disconnect the negative battery and put a test light or volt meter in series with the cable and battery terminal. I expect the light will be lit or the voltage to be above .2 volts draw.... Disconnect the battery, remove one component, connect the battery test setup, and see if voltage drops or light goes out..... when it does, you have the offending system, so investigate that.

Be sure that you can garantee good ground between battery and everything....especially the engine.

Sounds like the S terminal isnt getting power. You have two power cable that go to your starter solenoid, a power cable that has direct battery power, and the s terminal which gives power when you turn the key to the start position. First things first, verify that its the problem. Use a DVOM and check the voltage to the S terminal from the ignition switch while trying to crank. You should see battery voltage. If you see none/low voltage then theres your problem. Check the voltage for the S terminal at the back of the ignition switch, if its battery voltage then there is a break in the wire, if its 0V then you need an ignition switch. Hope this helps!!

Laptop not restarting up

your ram should be the problem from starting your device..  if you can do this, you can remove the ram from the device , clean it with an eraser and then reinstall it,,that should work.but if your laptop is under warranty still give it to the nearest service centre

Voltage HP 6715b

Look up the voltage acceptable for a HP  6715b laptop in the manual  that came with it. Go to Radio Shack and buy a $9.00 Grounded Adapter Plug. Be sure you take the HP power cord.
