I think it may be due the displacement of the RAM or may be due to the loose contact in the RAM.this is the reason why the lights blinks.it can be solved by placing the RAM correctly into the slot provided or it may be due to the damage in the power supply.the windows may not load due to the great load of viruses affected with the system .try to format it and install a fresh operating system and look.thank you

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try to remove the battery and the AC adapter/charge. Let it rest for a couple of minutes. Thereafter pls try again just using the AC adapter without the battery. Should this work OK, then pls try with the battery. In some cases, it may be needed to charge the battery for at least 4 hours.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

The lighting bolt symbol indicates you are connected to ac current, for your boss laptop plz try by removing the battery and put in the electrical charger, if the problem is not solved then resit the ram and check.If the problem persists then your boss lap top needs servicing.
For your laptop plz try to boot in safe mode.While your laptop is booting (bios screen) press F8 then you will get safe mode option just select it,if your computer is booting in safe mode then try to boot it normally, if you cant boot in safe mode then you have to reinstall or repair your operating system.

How do I turn on the flash? I tried to buy a really simple camera and there's just too much 'stuff' on it. everything seems to be ok, just can't figure out how to make the flash work. ...


Easy. When the camera is in normal shooting mode, press the up button (marked with the symbol of a lightning bolt) until the symbol of a crossed out lightning bolt near the top left of the screen turns to an uncrossed lightning bolt symbol. that's it.
extra tips-
  • if you keep pressing the up button until the lightning bolt symbol has a letter A next to it, the camera will fire the flash only when it thinks it is necessary. this will keep your flash from firing in bright light and therefore save battery charge.
  • remember when you flipped through your math textbook in the first grade and it had "too much stuff on it"? you think its too much because you aren't used to it. don't be afraid to mess with the settings in order to learn how to use your camera best; you can never permanently damage a camera in changing its settings. the worst that could ever happen is losing all the photos in memory. if anything else goes wrong, you can always return the settings to what they were when you bought the cam in a few button presses (refer to the manual).
good luck and happy shooting!

The "3 dvds stacked on top of each other" is the symbol for hard drive and will light up when there is hard drive activity.
Lightning represents electricity (ie. is the unit powered on and/or connected to a power source).
I'm not sure about the clock - or maybe it's a thermometer?

How do i set the flash on my vivitar cam. model 8025


Touch the lightning bolt icon in the function area until the flash icon and the letter A appears on the left side of the display. This activates the automatic flash.

Touch the lightning bolt icon again until the letter A disappears. This forces the manual flash mode.

Touch the lightning bolt icon again until the eyeball appears on the left side of the display. This activates the red-eye reduction feature.

To turn off the flash function touch the lightning bolt icon repeatedly until the no-flash symbol (lighting bolt in a circle with a line through it) appears on the left.

This is all described in the manual.

Compaq presario c300 wont turn on at all


Looks like a bad motherboard ,have you tried another power adapter the one that connects to the wall socket.
The motherboard could cost over $100 ,chepaer on Ebay or you could take it to a Compaq/HP service center and ask for a quote on the repair.

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Red eye


Greetings mccombs7,

There should be a button corresponding with a lightning bolt symbol. When red eye reduction (pre flash) is on, then there is a symbol with an eyeball next to it. Depress the button until you get to the desired setting, which should be the lightning bolt alone.

I hope this helps!

Dorothy
