Asked about an update and i said no and bow it won't turn on at all


Sometimes computers will automatically download your update even though you say no. Sometimes it will download your updates when you start up your computer and you have to wait. Depending on how many updates and how long it's been between updates it may take several minutes or may take several hours. On the other hand, there may have been a glitch and your computer stalled. You can hold the power button in for 3 seconds or more and the computer should automatically shut off. This is not recommended on a daily basis.
It's frustrating, but happens to the best of us.

I have an hp a706n desktop with 3 vga ports. Until yesterday I have been able to use two monitors. Now only one of the vga ports work. The port will work with ether monitor. However when I connect my...


Getting dual monitors to work correctly seems to be a hit or miss affair. In many cases, it's just a matter adding a second video card and monitor and rebooting the computer. In other cases, you need to do some cyber gymnastics to get things working correctly.
The process is the same no matter which version of Windows you are using. First, be sure that your system is working correctly. Boot into safe mode and verify that you have only one video adapter and monitor showing in the Device Manager. If there are more, but you only have one adapter and monitor, you'll need to remove the extras.
Once you're sure that your video setup is working fine, turn off the system and look inside. Remember that you'll need a video card for each monitor that you plan to run under Windows. That means that your system must have a free expansion slot for each one. You may find that you have problems with IRQ sharing or DMA channels, depending on your motherboard and video card, although many video cards seem relatively intolerant of IRQ and DMA conflicts. Install your video card in the appropriate slot, and then connect the monitor.
Restart your system. If all goes well, your computer will boot the same way that it always has…the second monitor will still be dark. If your system prompts you to login, do it. You may need to install drivers for your second video card, depending upon whether or not Windows has built in drivers or not. Just follow the on-screen instructions.
Once the drivers are installed, check the Device Manager to make sure that the display adapter is properly detected:
e14df7f.gif Once the drivers are installed, open the Display Properties window. In the settings screen, you should see something like this:

838d51e.gif You'll see that a second display is shown. Click on the grayed out display marked as "2". The window will change slightly to look like this:

d3c979a.gif You can then change the desktop resolution and color depth. Once you've done that, click your mouse on the "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" to enable it. Remember that the resolution, color depth and refresh rates of each monitor adapter combination don't have to be the same. The window should look something like this now:
ad5a047.gif Click on OK and your second monitor should activate itself as an extension of the first:

cf82475.gif 82671cc.gif
You'll find that you can change the relative geometries of the two monitors by moving their respective boxes around in the Settings window.

Please reply to me if that doesnt help!!!

LCD TV lamp indicator on and lamp doesn't fix problem


FIrst of all, make sure that the lamp door is secured properly. There are safety switches inside that will prevent the set from working properly if the doors are not closed fully. If there is a door for access to the fans, this too can be at fault. Try that first and update this if you are still having the problem.

Thanks,
Dan
