Purhaps the HDD connector is loose, so it is not detected.

If you are not a technician, please do not try opening & take it to the nearest service center.

Dell optiplex gx 620 powere went out last night and this morning it won't turn on. The only light I see is on the motherboard and its solid yellow


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope this helps you

My laptop was working fine Fri night and sat it was black when I went to turn it on and it has stayed that way all wkend~! I have taken the battery out and shut it off and on and still nothing. The little...


The little "stack of CD's" is a hard disk activity light.
In an ACER, if it blinks on boot, you may need to pop the PC open and bridge the BIOS jumper to reset the BIOS... Not fun nor easy, but possible.

Because you didn't state you added RAM, changed a BIOS setting, etc, we'll continue as a regular user:

First to check:
When you power on, do you get a BIOS screen? Meaning quick text showing pc info, RAM, or a splash screen (picture) saying the manufacturer, HP, Acer, ASUS, Toshiba, etc... Can you tap F2 (Acer), F10 (HP/Compaq) and enter the BIOS?

If NO,
your motherboard may be to blame, the timing of the flashing lights indicating an error, or your hard disk has died and a poor BIOS could not translate that error to the user in text format.

If YES,
Does it continue on to show a Microsoft Windows Logo, or logo depecting your operating system (os), Ubuntu, Xandros, etc?

If NO: your hard disk may be failing, physically loose, completely dead, OR your os may be corrupted. You can unplug it, pull the battery, hold power on for 10 sec, flip it over, unscrew the hard drive cover, re-seat the hard disk (pull it out, put it back). Repeat for the RAM. Add the battery, plug it in and retry.

If YES,
And the pc starts loading Windows, Ubuntu, etc, but HANGS with the hard drive light flashing, you may have a simple driver conflict issue. You can try repeatedly tapping F8 while booting and select "last known good configuration" (windows only). It may help, or you may need help.

:) Sorry!

check your power cord to insure that you are getting power. make sure power cord is plug in the back.
look in back of computer. you will see a little orange switch. it says 115/220 click to 220. boot computer.
if computer boots up turn off and click back over to 115.
if it does not boot your power supply in your computer needs replacement.

I have a toshiba p205d-s7436 when you turn the laptop on a black sceen reads toshiba leading innovation i tryed putting recovery discs in will not reboot tryed f12 and f2 it will not boot up PLEASE ANY...


The first step is to check the BIOS to see if your hard drive is listed. If so, is it set to be the first boot device. To enter the BIOS, use the F2 option when prompted.

If the hard drive is not present, it's either come loose, or the drive's controller has failed.

Also, if you can use the F12 option to boot to a CD/DVD drive, use another computer to download the Ultimate Boot CD iso from http://ultimatebootcd.com, and then burn it to a CD. This will create a bootable diagnostic CD that you can use to run diagnostics of your hard drive.

Let me know how this works for you.

Sincerely,
James O'Brien

Windows vista will not boot on a toshiba laptop


First try boot options.

On start up press F8, you get different boot options listed.

Select "last known good configuration"
If this doesn't work, try "boot into Safe Mode". Then restart once safe mode loads.

If neither of these work, you may have to attempt a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows Vista Operating system disk (same version of Vista, Home or Premium).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The Windows Setup CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

My toshiba satellite p200-140 laptop will not start up. the power button lights up but nothing else happens. it was working fine last night


My laptop had a similar problem. I left my laptop running and some time later when I went back to my laptop, it would not startup. The power light seemed to be on but the laptop would not function. I tried several things like pressing on the power key for some time without any success and also tried all sorts of alternate buttons and sequences.

I resolved the problem by first disconnecting the power cord then by removing the battery for 5 minutes. I then re-installed the battery then connected the power adapter.

As soon as I turned the power button 'ON', the laptop booted up again.

Hope this works out for you.

Regards,
Rick

I have a crappy HP pavillion dv6000 laptop, after working fine on shutdown last night, i turned on this morning and it would not boot up. the lights on the volume bar lit up, flashed, and went off...thats...


It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?

Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.

I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.
