Those numbers are for the software Identification only.
you will need to go to Desktop--> Right Click My Computer--> Properties then at the bottom of the page it will say not activated you will need to click on activate. if you have the seriel and its not registering you will need to call the microsoft number displayed to reset it.

The reason why you cant changed anything on it as its kinda like in a demo mode only so when ever you restart your computer all the changed will dissappear ready for the next user to try it out.

Can you do what i nead on you in to keep my dest from cut off


You mean can someone use Remote Access, and repair your computer?

A) No

B) Also no one on FixYa is allowed Remote Access to someone else's computer, through FixYa. Good way to get your membership cancelled.

Since this is the world's largest product support website, and I am an expert in the field you are having a problem in, how about you, and I see what the problem is, and go about fixing it?

Desktop computer
There are two TOP things that bring a desktop computer to a repair shop;
1) The inside of the computer is dirty.
2) The Power Supply inside the computer is bad.

Past that it's usually just a loose ram memory module, ('Stick'), or a bad harddrive, or malware.
Past those it gets a little more complicated. (Okay, maybe a lot, lol!)

Just from your quick description, I am willing to bet the inside of the computer is dirty.
So, let's start with you posting the manufacturer name, and model number of the desktop computer. (Post back in a Comment)

This is on the back of the computer next to the Windows product key. Example of a Windows product key,

http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A2KJkK4xlPxPuBMAiRWJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3F_adv_prop%3Dimage%26va%3Dwindows%2Bproduct%2Bkey%2Blabel%26fr%3Dmoz35%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D6&w=600&h=406&imgurl=www.computer-system-software.com%2Fphoto%2Fpl348323-xp_sp3_oem_software_windows_product_key_sticker_labels_for_intel_or_dell.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.computer-system-software.com%2Fchina-xp_sp3_oem_software_windows_product_key_sticker_labels_for_intel_or_dell-245704.html&size=39.1+KB&name=...+SP3+OEM+software+Windows+Product+Key+Sticker+labels+for+intel+or+dell&p=windows+product+key+label&oid=0006eae4952fe1bcf06d5873fd15fc92&fr2=&fr=moz35&tt=...%2BSP3%2BOEM%2Bsoftware%2BWindows%2BProduct%2BKey%2BSticker%2Blabels%2Bfor%2Bintel%2Bor%2Bdell&b=0&ni=96&no=6&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=142ska8ud&sigb=13j0jagh4&sigi=13sbi9qh0&.crumb=J6iwC7bwOtM

(For an HP computer for example; look for the Product Number.
This is in a white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number)

Or it may be up on the side of the computer tower.
(Some models of desktop computers have a panel, or door, in the front. Upon opening it the model number is on a label inside)

From there you will unplug your computer from power, then open the computer case. BEFORE reaching inside the computer, you will follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components (Parts) inside a computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static, and keep your computer safe.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

Then you will look to see if the inside of the computer is dirty.
At that point if it is, use a can,(Or two), of compressed air for computers, and clean the inside of the computer out.
(Specific procedure. Will post when you are ready)

From that point I will guide you, in looking to see if any Electrolytic Capacitors are bad on the motherboard.

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

Those two items above, and a failing Power Supply, can cause what you have described.

How can i get my puk number


Dear User,

PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don't do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider. Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUKPhoneNumber to toll free number 121. You can make use of any other Airtel number to send this message since your SIM might have been blocked already.
If the above method doesn't works or your service provider is not Airtel, call to customer care using any other mobile phone which uses the same service provider. They will ask some details about you to make sure you are the owner of the SIM card. Questions might include your billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called or messaged etc. They might even ask you number printed on the SIM card, so be prepared with all details before calling them. Once you get the PUK code, enter it into the phone & your phone will return to normal.

Regards,
Tech_Comp

Replacing the power supply on my acer pc. Liteon model No: ps 5221-06/ where to find it?


Yes,
https://www.pacificgeek.com/product.asp?ID=846862&C=304&S=-1

It's made by Delta for Acer. Model Number is
DPS-220UB A

I know you didn't ask for this information, but I feel compelled to tell you.

I know it's hard finding the right style/shape of power supply to fit in your computer case,.
BUT,

the above power supply is a cheap quality power supply. Anything in power supplies made by Delta is.
(Plus it seems to be the only thing available)

I wish you would consider buying a decent, economical, ATX computer case, and put the hardware components out of your Acer into it.

The reasoning is,
1) There will be more airflow. Airflow, is used to keep the hardware components inside the computer cool.

This increases the lifespan of the hardware components.

2) An ATX style of power supply can be used. The style that approximately 90 percent of personal computers, out there use.

You could buy a power supply for the same amount of money, that would be more Reliable, have more Power, run Quieter due to a larger fan, and has higher quality components inside.

3) Should you wish to add additional harddrives, and optical drives in the future, there will be room.

My Dell Dimension 5100C will not come out of sleep mode. Everytime i press the power button, the light blinks orange and keeps blinking ,no noise from the inside or anything. It Just stays in hibernate...


the continuously blinking yellow litght indicates that the power supply gets juice from the line but cannot distribute powe to the components. the first thing to do is to check and see if the power supply is working. dell power supplys have a test button, if you turn the computer around and hold the button on the power supply down for a few seconds the light should turn green, if it dosen't then you need a new power supply. if the power supply is ok, turn the computer on and have a look at the diagnostic lights (on the back, labeled 123 and 4) if you call the dell support line and tell them your model number (or give them the service tag) and which of those lights are on they will be able to tell you what the problem is. if you are still in warranty they will fix you, if not they will direct you to someone who can.
