Blue power light off and fan running hard


The led may have become disconnected or failed. The power led can be replaced as it goes to a couple leads on your main board.

Sony Vaio VGC-RC210G blue panel light LED burned out. Need to know how to change bulb?


Obviously the question was not answered correctly. I don't know how well you are versed into taking things apart, but here we go. First you need to unplug Sony. You need to remove the I/O panel on the bottom of the case after removing the front panel. Remove the on/off switch and remove the two lights adjacent to it. You gently pry apart the tabs on the back of the bulbs and pull the lights out from the back out of retainer. Do the same with the light that is burned out. Carefully cut or break the two cable ties and remove complete wiring harness. You need to remove the side Panel (right side looking from the front). Remove the air tunnel pieces (2 of them), The cable that needs to be unplugged from the motherboard. it is the very first along top edge from the left. It is yellow. Open the 2 tabs that hold all wiring down the front (you will see these just in front of CPU fan and behind front grill. Remove the harness. I do have the number in front of me but you can take the harness to Radio Shack and they can give you the correct one. Cut the old bulb off as close as possible. Solder the new one on and reverse the steps to reinstall. Once harness is plugged back onto motherboard, you can test by plugging power cord in and pushing power button. Make sure none of the wires are touching each other or any metal. Put it all back together and you will have blue light (light is not blue, plastic in front of it is). OR you can just use it without that light as it serves no purpose to be pretty and no one but you will know the difference. By the way I refurbish, repair, etc. nothing but Sony PCs. You also may be able to find a replacement harness but they are scarce. Hope this help. OH, the power supply or motherboard has nothing to do with this bulb working or not. If the other two (power on and hard drive activity) work, the bulb only, is bad.

Acer aspire m3640 no power light hard drive light on


Check/reseat monitor cables. If the fan and HDD are running, perhaps the power led is out. Check the monitor cable connections. Is the monitor plug into AC? Turned on? Shut down Desktop , unplug, reseat Graphics Card, if applicable, reboot.

My Gateway Gt 5220 will not turn on. Technicaly it does turn on ex: hard drive spin processor click couple time power brick and processor fan spins hard drive light flickers couples time and cd drive will...


sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

Screen shuts off


this happens when the processor gets over heated.--- normally the speed of the fan that cools the processor decreases due to dust in it.just clean the processor fan and apply a air blower with full pressure on it to remove all the dust.this will help.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

It doesn't boot up


Shoot it... Or give a little more information... ^.^.
USUALLY, this is power supply related. If a PS is not working, or not working correctly, your machine will fail to start. If you hear fans and see yellow lights, but no green lights, that usually means the Power supply's CPU-power is not working within acceptable limits. If there are no lights and fans whatsoever, that usually means the ps is toast. But, just to be sure, make certain that the little red switch on the back is set to 115 instead of 230.
If you see a start-up screen (something that says SONY or VIAO when you turn it on) that means that you could have a faulty hard drive, or faulty memory. Your best option is call Sony or let a pc tech give it a look-see. Without more information, I can only make general suggestions.
If you DO decide to shoot it, make sure you do it ONLY during computer-hunting season, and make sure you have a license to hunt computers. ^.^

Tried to turn it on, no powr. Replaced the power supply, little led on the mother board, but no power, no fans.


no beeps.
I tried 3 different power supplies.
I stripped out the memory and hard drive and put it in the dumpster where it belonged.
