Bad battery. If it does this when you are using the adapter then the issue is with the motherboard. or a bad peripheral.

You should replace the power supply, and clan out dust, and tighten connectors

Probably the mainboard or flaky power supply.

I'd start by replacing the power supply. Buy one you can use in a new machine, though... or "borrow" one from another machine.

must have taken a hit before you tried turning it on in the 2 months. dropped, or shocked electrically or someone was messing withit.
or it wasn't working before you got it. only way is to have it checked out. one thing, the fan over the heat sink(over the cpu processor chip), might not be working. take a look and if it does not spin(fan) when you power up then this will prevent pc from booting. have seen this happen before. move wires from van and check connection to motherboard. if it does not spin then take it to shop tell them what you think and they may not charge you to verify it. good luck

Compaq presario CQ61 is making a vibrating noise. it is constant


Two things,
1) Check if you have a CD/DVD in the disk-drive and remove it. The spinning disk is causing the vibration

2) Go to START > Control panel > PERFORMANCE AND MAINTENANCE > POWER OPTIONS >


In the middle of the dialog box, you should see a box that says "Turn off hard disks".
There you can select "After 3 minutes" or "After 5 minutes". This will turn off another spinning/vibrating thing if you have an issue with imbalance there.

3) Make sure you are not blocking the vent holes on the bottom of your laptop so air can get through and it doesn't overheat. The last spinning thing on your laptop is the cooling fan. This only comes on when it is hot. If you are doing a lot of calculations or heavy-duty computing will also make it hot but this is very rare (I guess some games can also be considered heavy-duty computing and cause overheating). If you are doing heavy-duty computing, there is nothing that can be done about he vibration of the cooling fan.

Good luck

The BIOS battery may have been drained out because the only time it charges is when the laptop is powered on. Check the BIOS battery - you might need to replace it.

Gatweway lap top button light up, but wont turn on


I'm afraid this sounds suspiciously like a motherboard problem. It would help to know what model etc, as some Gateway & EMachine model laptops have had extended warranties due to motherboard issues, or just go to Gateway.com and research it yourself.

Ewave over range microwave


I am assuming the food is heated. Most microwaves have only 2 major parts, the magnetron, the thing that makes the radio waves(heat) and the control module. The relays for the light and rotisserie are on the control module board. However, as the interior light does not work. have you tried a replacement? the table not spinning may be jammed with food or something keeping the motor from turning, that or it is seized up and needs replaced. I don't think the 2 things are related. Try a new bulb and then taking the bottom apart to gain asses to the motor that spins the plate before I looked at a new control board.
