Pc starts but black screen


Bad video card, bad hard drive, bios battery. If you have a screen but only a blinking cursor on it, likely a bad hard disk drive, meaning all your data and files are now gone, also your os is likely inaccessible. If you can heart it boot up like normal through speakers then video card or monitor, more likely the monitor's power supply is bad, find another monitor (size not important, just the display connector) and connect it to your PC with the power off. If it works then it's the monitor that is bad, purchase a new monitor, if another known working monitor doesn't solve the screen issue, it's probably your video card. A new card is cheap and you should be able to install a new one and have basic display until you install the drivers.

Instructions to keep your Laptop Battery last longer


There are certain elementary rules for getting more from your laptop battery. Make it a point to turn off Wi-Fi and BlueTooth. You are aware that most laptops have shortcut keys to instantly disable wireless networking. Completely avoid playing computer games, music or DVD movies as multimedia activities tend to drain laptop batteries. Disconnect all external devices like PC Card modems, firewire, USB devices and optical drives. It is advisable to use the notebook touchpad instead of an external mouse. It will also help to adjust your screen brightness as dimming your display saves battery power. You'll certainly need to see your screen, but just how bright do you need it to be? Screens lighted at full strength eat up 15 percent more battery life than if your battery was at 50 percent brightness. So, be sure to squeeze more life out of your laptop by reducing the brightness of your monitor a great deal.
3711.jpg Select a laptop power scheme that turns off the notebook monitor and hard disk after 10 minutes of inactivity. Remember to decrease or mute the laptop speaker volume. Lastly, programs that are run from a CD or DVD can be copied and run from the hard drive, which typically consumes less power than an optical drive. Some games offer you the choice to install to the hard drive, so choose this option, as you will get more life out of your laptop than using the CD-ROM or DVD player, which are massive battery consumers. There are also some more tips to improve your laptop battery life. If you do not use your laptop for extended periods of time like a few days or a week, then remove the battery pack from the laptop. Never expose the battery to high heat or extreme cold conditions. For instance, do not leave your battery in your car during the summer months. Hot batteries discharge very quickly, and cold ones can't create as much power. Make it a point to plug your laptop charger adapter into a UPS and not directly into a power outlet or surge protector. Fully charge new battery packs before use. New pack needs to be fully charged and discharged (cycled) a few times before it can qualify to full capacity. Leaving a battery in a laptop while using an electrical outlet for long periods of time will keep the battery in a constant state of charging up and that will reduce the life cycle of the battery.
Energy management has been a problem since the earliest days of mobile computing. Drains on a battery include virtually every component on your laptop, including the screen, the hard drive, the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM, and other peripherals. The biggest villain is DVD movie, which cause the screen to run at full power for the life of the movie. Make sure you have no devices plugged into the laptop that can drain its power, such as a webcam, USB thumb-stick, or wireless PC card. According to laptop manufacturers, connected peripherals can impact battery life by up to 12 percent (depending on the peripheral), so get used to the touchpad instead of using an external mouse when you're away from an electrical outlet. As a ‘Prevention is better than cure’ philosophy, it is worth mentioning that air travelers should make it a point to recharge the battery before a flight. Find an electrical outlet while you're waiting for your flight at the gate, a restaurant, or departure lounge.

I can't play a dvd on my computer?


if you burn this dvd by yourself then there must be problem with the X speed of your DVD ROM drive.Most of DVD rom drives does not play dvds scratched and old dvds.Lens of your dvd rom may be faulty.If DVD is new and its condition is better then there must be problem in your PC.Proper dvd player is not installed in your pc.I would recommend KM player or K-lite media codec pack.You can easily get them on google or at www.download.cnet.com/

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I have a Gateway w340ua the other day i shut it down properly and todat it will not boot up at all nothing on screen but the dvd rom light comes on ?


Attach a external monitor and reboot -- if it comes up then the LCD on the laptop may be broken / damaged. This is where I would start.

let me know what happens after that.

if still no picture it could mean a bad video card and might need replaced.

Looks like a bad video card/chip or motherboard.

Experts only!!!
Try this:
  1. Power OFF the computer
  2. Remove the battery
  3. Unplug AC
  4. Remove the RAM
  5. Remove the CMOS battery
  6. Press and hold Power ON button for 30 secs. at least
  7. Put back the RAM and the CMOS battery
  8. Put back the battery
  9. Plug back AC
  10. Power ON as normal

If that does not help, remove the hard drive and just boot into BIOS setup.

Cant get DVD's to play


Try cleaning off the laser of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip. This will make sure there is no specs of dust or dirt on the laser.

If it sill plays cd's but not dvd's then that means the laser is bad cause it takes more power from the laser to read dvds cause there is more information that needs to be verfied.

So if the laser is bad that means the drive you bought was defective. Try a bunch of different dvds to be sure you don't have any that are bad.

If your getting it with any dvd your putting in there then you know you need to get another drive.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways
