The reason that the pc was thrown away is because something went wrong with it, and the owners know nothing about pc's or it would have been too expensive for them to fix. But, saying that you could get it working again!!! when a pc doesn't work its the major components you have to look at, the memory the CPU (processor) the PSU (power supply) or the motherboard, first i would look at the memory, if this goes faulty the pc will not start up and just beep, try a new PSU that may be the main problem and check the above

Hello,

I would suggest checking the motherboard for any burned or blackened spots on the motherboard or any add-on cards that may be present. You should be able to get something on the display as long as you have good power and a good video card. You still run the risk of having a bad hard drive or cd rom.

Hope this helps. Please make sure that you rate this information.

Thanks

Computer will never turn on


Odds are good your computer is quite dirty on the inside. If you have never opened the computer I suggest you simply buy a new one, to save time and frustration.

But since you are here, this is what to look for:
Dirty inside - Open the computer and blow all the dust out. Use DRY air.
Power supply - if you have power but no lights on your motherboard anywhere, check your computer's power supply. This may mean removing it and testing in a different computer or using a multi-meter and something to turn it on.
Power switch - Perhaps your switch is simply worn out. Open the computer and follow the wires from the button to the motherboard. Remove the connection and short those two pins for a moment. If your switch is bad, your computer should now be booting up.
Hard drive failure - If you mean will not boot when you say "will never turn on" your hard drive may have failed. If this is the case you can simply replace the hard drive. BUT, you will have to re-install all of your programs AND your operating system. Better to simply buy a new computer if that is the case, unless you have all of your original disks and a fast internet connection.

I just got my nx5000 up and running again. The memory needed to be reseated in the socket (got this tip of the HP site) All I did was open it up and reseat the ram - just took it out and put it back in again. Problem solved. I also took the opportunity to vacuum a little bit of dust out, but I don't think this was anything to do with the problem.

Get a copy of the service manual (Just google "hp service manual nx5000") it has easy instructions at how to get to the memory - it is just under the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Latitude C640 is dead!!


The only solution that I can think of would be a power jack problem. I would not advise replacing the power jack yourself since you have to take out the laptop mother board, de-solder the power jack then solder the new one on and put it back together. My advice would be to take it to a professional computer repair shop and have them take a look at it and replace the power jack. It is worth getting repaired since power jacks usually range $40-$70.
