What ??? is this a desktop or laptop ?
Do you mean you cant see yout laptop screen ?
The display on your laptop is the interface through which you interact with and control your computer.
If it is not working, your laptop will become virtually impossible to use.
A laptop is a computer, and like all computers is subject to both hardware and software problems that may affect the display.
Before taking your laptop in for repair or getting rid of it, you should first check the display yourself to see if it needs to be replaced.
Check the laptop's battery and power cord.
If the laptop is out of power, the display will not work.
This usually happens if the power cord is unplugged and you were unknowingly running your laptop on battery power.
Check to make sure the power cord is plugged in and that the laptop has power.
Many laptops also turn off the display if it is being powered by its battery after a period of nonuse. Touching any key will usually turn the display back on if the battery is not drained.
Restart your computer. If a software program is stuck or malfunctioning, it may cause your display to stop functioning.
Press and hold the "Power" button on your laptop to reboot your computer.
If the problem was a malfunctioning program, the display will turn on after the computer restarts.
Check the brightness level of the display.
If the level is too low, the screen will appear dark.
The brightness controls are usually located on two function keys, such as "F9" and "F10." Look for sun or light icons on the keys.
Press the key with the larger icon to increase the brightness level.
Alternatively, on some laptops hold the "Fn" key while simultaneously pressing the "Up Arrow" key to increase the screen brightness.
Check the display closed switch.
Many laptops have a small button that senses when the LCD screen is closed and puts the laptop in sleep or hibernation mode.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.
Check your RAM.
The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.
There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.
Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.
Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r
Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes.
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
If the switch gets clogged with dirt, it may get stuck in the closed position.
This will result in dark display even when the lid is open.
The switch is usually located near the hinges of the lid. Spray the switch with a can of compressed air to loosen the dirt so that it will resume its normal operation.
Plug an external monitor into your laptop.
If the problem is not software related, the external monitor will display the laptop's screen.
Connect the monitor by plugging the cable into the VGA, HDMI or DVI port on the laptop.
Press and hold the "Fn" key while simultaneously pressing the "F8" key.
The video output will be directed to the external monitor if there is a hardware problem.

My hard drive has been making a clicking noise for a while, the computer freezes up at times, I do not think the cooling fan is working, could this cause the issue with the hard drive making noise, and if...


More than likely, your hard drive is failing. This COULD be the cause for the freezing. The other thing that could cause the freezing is if the processor is getting too hot due to the failed fan. Either way you will need to have your HD replaced before it fails completely. The clicking you are hearing is the read head hitting the case of the hard drive. It might have started from being too hot. If the parts of your computer are getting too hot, it will increase the chances that they will fail in the future.

I guess your operating system has been damaged by viruses. you need to completely format the hard disc and install new operating system and other softwares. Install McAfee 5.7i antivirus software to protect your system from viruses. To get protection from spywares you can also use site advisor softwares.

My hp pavilion a6110n product nogg781aa .Has anoisy cooling fan .How do I chang it.


If it's the processor fan that's noisy you can purchase a replacement. The fan and heatsink are normally a complete assembly you can find from many vendors online. This computer has a type AM2 socket; you need to make sure to get a cooling fan for that type. Be sure the replacement will fit into the same space as the original.

If it's the power supply fan thats loud, there may be a couple of possible causes. It may just be a noisy fan, in which case you can replace the power supply. Make sure to get one that has at least the same power rating as the original. Or the fan may be running at its maximum speed. I don't know about this computer in particular, but many computers control the fan speed depending on how hot the processor is (determined by sensors built into the main board). If the fan is running at its top speed, it can be quite noisy. This might be due to a defective power supply or problems with the fan control on the system board

My hp pavillion dv6000 laptop..the fan is unusually noisy??


Sometimes on my laptop the fan gets louder when it has been turned on when it is really cold or a hot environment. After I let it run for a while and then reboot it will operate as normal. I'm sure this is the same on a desktop.

If this is not the case then you would most likely need a replacement fan, as they do go out from use. In fact I've got a loud fan on one of my Desktops I will replace when I purchase a replacement.

3beeps means display adapter/vga adapter faulty, send to HP.There is an extended year warranty provided by HP for this fault...it is related to the AMD boards with Nvidia chipsets. It's an overheating issue. Mainboard will need to be replaced. If not your display then your wireless will bomb out. This is on all DV6000&DV9000 laptops with the above mentioned setup.

Emachines T2824 Dead System


if it is powering off like that it usually means that the mobo is bad, look at the capacitors on the mobo. if any of the tops are raised or corroding, it needs replaced. also if you see any part of the motherboard that is darker or orange, it is from a lot of heat, which means that parts may have gotten too hot and melted.

usually for an emachine, the mobo's are usually more than the unit is worth. best solutiong would be to get ready to invest in another unit
