try replacing the audio output cable that feeds the speakers. the computer reads it plugged in by breaking the circuit when its empty. check the entire length of the cord for cuts and breaks, and check the plug ends. best test is using a multimeter and checking each section of the plugs for continuity.
I'm guessing you have checked the fuse in the plug top,so have you checked the cable for a break in it, some times cable damage can be caused by the silliest of things such as standing on it ,catching it when hoovering or changing things around or maybe it got kinked If you are not sure,try this, change the fuse with one from a working appliance ie. a table lamp that way you know that fuse IS working, now starting at where the cable enters the printer gently move the cable up /down and side to side while watching and listening for lights or sound , work your way along the length of the cable to the plug .. Something else ,molded plugs can and do go wrongto fix this, cut the plug of and fit a standard 13 amp plug,however check the fuse rating in the old plug ,if it is a 3 or 5 amp fuse it is recomended you replace it with the same size fuse as this protects your printer from damage , it does not give it more power lol. goodluck ...T.C.
Yes you can install a hard drive on any computer as long as it has the same power and data connections and plugs.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules 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 If your current hard drive is on the fritz, or you have an older drive with data you need to retrieve, it's a fairly short process to swap out an existing drive with an old unit lying around the house. To replace the hard drive you need to be comfortable taking apart your computer and working inside its case. The hard drive is located in the series of metal drive bays located underneath the computer's side access panel.
Shut down your computer's operating system. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the computer case and unplug any other cables, such as for the monitor and mouse. Set the computer case gently on its side on a stable work area such as a desk or table. Check the far left end of the case to determine if the side access panel uses screws or a release button. Remove the two screws with a Phillips screwdriver, if they are present. Instead press in the plastic release button, if one is present. Push down the side panel and slide it off the computer. With some models you may need to instead lift the panel to the right until it locks at 90 degrees. Check the metal drive bays near the front end of the case and locate the one containing the rectangular metal hard drive. Unplug the data cable and the power cable from the ports on the back end of the hard drive. Remove the screws holding the hard drive to the metal drive bay. Set the screws aside in a container so they don't become lost. Grip the back of the current hard drive and slide it out of the drive bay. Slide the old hard drive you want to use into the drive bay, and ensure the power and data cable ports are facing into the computer's case. Plug the power and data cables you removed earlier into the corresponding ports on the back end of the old hard drive. Replace the screws removed earlier to hold the old hard drive to the metal drive bay. Replace the computer's side access panel and tighten the screws in place, if it used them. Reconnect the computer's power cable and the other cables you removed earlier. Press the computer's power button. Hope this helps.
your Gateway computer is
switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such
as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers
off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out
and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a
new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.
The printer head has locked itself and won't move. I have found a solution for you on the Internet - here are the details :-
I was able to unlock the print head - just with a small piece of foil. Cut
a 3-5cm wide stripe from a sheet of overhead-foil (90um thickness),
move it below the print head, and move it to the front and upwards, to
the back and upwards. Remove the foil. After switching the printer on -
it will work as before and be able to move the head. No need to
disassemble the whole MX700!

First check the cable, by moving it up and down. Especially around the jack plug. Breaks in the cable or jack are very common. If in doubt cut the ******** and fit a new one. If the break is higher up, you might need to replace the whole cable. In which case you will have to take off both headphone cushions and undo screws in each side. Then solder the new wire on.
More info please, laptop, desktop, cable-modem, or dial-up, brand of computer is usefull too. If cable modem, use a LAN cable(LOCAL AREA NETWORK) it looks similar to a phone cord, and plugs into the back of a desktop, or side of a laptop.
For more than 1 computer, you'll need a router of some kind.
Internal dial-up modems are a whole nother thing, if you need one of these you may want to take it somewhere and have a pro put it in, especially if its a laptop.
During moving the power connector which looks like a big telephone plug or a data plug may have been wrenched loose, from the internal connector, inside the plastic plug. Use the power plug from the other phone to test. There is no battery in the phone to charge. If changing the power adapter and plug fixes the problem have you telephone company check the connector or go to radio shack and buy a plug and a cheap tool to replace the plug.
