He removed the RAM .... just plug it back in. its a chip and then you'll see three spots inside the computer on the mother board it looks like there r three colums or something.. plug the ram chip into ther push hard. and if its not the ram then somebody kicked the tower hard and the processor is damaged or out of place.

My screen on hp 1907 went blank, my 13 yr old nephew started punching all the buttons on the monitor over and over and hitting the on and off button. Now I am having a problem with my screen going black...


I think it's pretty clear he messed something up. Try checking the VGA cable (the blue one) that's hooked up to both you computer and monitor. Check if any pins are bent or broken. If not, make sure they're securely plugged in and try booting up. If it still doesn't work, then I'm afraid he may have knocked some connection in the motherboard out of whack. I hope it's just a slight VGA problem. Hope this helps!

Pc will not turn on, blue light flashes on power button and fans turn for a sec. then nothing


The power pack has failed and needs to be replaced, they are easy to change, take the side panel of the tower, there should be 2-3 screws at the back holding in place, the power supply will be in the top corner with a bunch of wires coming out of it, unplug all wires from the motherboard and peripherals inside the pc ensuring you write down where each one goes.
There are 4 screws holding the power supply in place, they are placed at the back of the tower, near the top, undo the screws and the power supply should just pull out of the case, take the power supply to your local store and get a replacement, normally they are priced between ?15-50, put the new one back in the same way and try to boot the pc, it should now be fine.
hope this helps.

Where do i connect everything inside the pc?


Be calm, all wires only plug where they belong to and most times they're color coded.

1. Two cables connect to the monitor, one is a power cable and the other is a video cable, most of the times its VGA cable which end in a connector with 15 pins and a blue plastic cover, search for a blue rounded corner trapezoid in the computer tower, once you find it carefully instert the cable from the monitor and tight the screws that are at each side. image

2. If your keyboard and mouse are USB then connect them to any avaiable USB port (these are squared and the computer has many), It may be that your keyboard and mouse end in round conectors this are called ps/2 and look like this, purple is for keyboard and green for mouse.

3. This far you have connected most common input output, if you also have speakers connect its jack in the green audio socket.

Finally connect your computer to the power, this should be all.

see if one of the little wires inside the wire end from the monitor that goes into the tower is bent or messed up. If one of those are missing, the whole monitor is messed up. Also look on the back of the tower for the |O| picture. It should be blue.

If there are no issues on the cables that you are using then you should try to check if you have video card problems or you should try if it works on your on board VGA, tighten the screws when you plug it to your computer.

15 yr old GE TBX18SA refrigerator. Not cooling.


Remove the screw , on the left side of the control panel , and pull the panel , from the left side , outward to the right . You should now see , slightly to the right , from the middle , a black screw , a hole with slot , and slightly higher to the right , a hole with a white piece , with a hole in it . Now , the hole with the slot , turn with a screwdriver , until you hear/feel a louder click . Turn this slowly . When you hit the right click , the refrig will shut off . Remove the inside rear freezer panel ( and ice maker if equiped ) , by removing 3 or 4 screws , pop off the grill piece , and may have to twist the ice maker receptical slightly , to remove . If you do not see the heater on ( red ) , below the coils , then the heater is most likely the problem . pt # WR51x464 . Your old one , has a glass tube , but the new one , is calrod . I believe 2 screws hold this heater on .. If the glass heater does come on , then the problem is the defrost timer ( the piece you turned with the screwdriver ) which is removed , by removing that black screw and bending the panel out slightly . Pt # WR9X520 .
