    No there are no beeps that I hear or anything. I do hear the hum of the fan but no logo or any picture on the screen.

  • buda1love Dec 22, 2008

    Didn't have anything external connected. I unplugged batt. and plugged into the ac power and still the same thing happened. no response. the lights in the front aren't working either. Do you think this will be expensive to fix? Should I get it fixed will it be worth it? or should I just get a new laptop?

    Does the laptop "beep" at you when you turn it on?  If so, how many long beeps and how many short beeps?  (they are codes for technicians to help diagnose the problem)


    Do you hear the laptop sounds like you would normally hear during boot-up, or just the hum of the fan?  Describe what you hear.


    At any point during the boot process, does anything at all, even a logo, display on the screen?

Then it is safe to say that you have a hardware problem.  The laptop is not making it through the POST sequence (Power On Self Test). 
Laptops are very difficult to work on internally - first, try to remove anything external.  USB drives, any add-on memory (not internal memory though), printer, anything at all.  Also remove the battery and plug the laptop into AC power.  Try to power on again and see if you get any response.  If you do, post back what happened and we'll go from there.

    At this point, there are a few approaches you could take. I'm assuming that you don't have access to any diagnostic tools (like a POST card - see here for example http://www.virtualvillage.com/Items/0064... ) or spare parts...if I'm incorrect, please let me know and we could go further on troubleshooting down to the specific part that has gone bad. But unfortunately, with no response from the system, and no way to test or diagnose, there are several parts that could be causing it not to boot.



    As far as taking it to a repair shop, I can only give you my opinion...take it to a reputable shop that will charge you a flat fee to diagnose the problem using tools like the one above and provide you with an estimate for repair. If it's the AC adapter, it can be replaced for around $30-45. A motherboard replacement, however, can be very expensive both in labor and for the part itself. In that case, I would recommend investing in a new laptop with a warranty instead.

What causes a Syncmaster 2253LW monitor to start ok and immediately fade.


The monitor may be failing. Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

This is a known symptom of a failure in the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble and the unit and then what to look for and replace on the power supply board to bring the unit back to working condition.

Lookbook will not power on


A computer that won't start can be both alarming and infuriating, especially if you're on a deadline or you haven't been backing up all your data (like we all tend to do). Don't panic, though-this problem often has a simple solution.

1.If your desktop computer does nothing at all when you try to start it, first check that the power cable is securely plugged in at the back of the computer as well as into a working power outlet. It's amazing how often this is the case.
2.If you're starting from a button on the keyboard, make sure the keyboard is connected to the computer.
3.If the computer is plugged into a surge protector, see if the surge protector has a reset switch that you can push. (If it doesn't have a reset switch and the problem is with the surge protector, it will need to be replaced.) Try plugging a lamp or other device into one of the surge protector's outlets to make sure it's working.
4.If you can hear the computer's fan or hard-disk drive, or if you can see indicator lights on the main unit but the monitor stays dark, make sure that the monitor is connected to a working power source, that it's turned on and that it's securely connected to the computer via the video cable.
5.If the monitor and computer have power but the computer displays a "Non-system disk or disk error" message, check to make sure you didn't leave a disk in the A: drive. If you did, eject it and restart the computer.
6.If the operating system still won't start even though the computer and monitor have power, try restarting with a Windows CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive or, if you've got a Macintosh, with a Mac OS disc in the CD-ROM drive. (You can start a Mac from the CDROM drive by holding down the C key while starting up.)
7.If the operating system then starts, your problem is probably with the startup hard drive or with the operating system installed on it. If you can't fix the drive, you'll have to replace it. (See also How to Fix Bad Sectors on a Hard Disk and How to Recover Lost Files.)

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

Monitor Not Showing A Picture. Light flashes Yellow and Green.


use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.

please rate me and give me a fixya! if it helped.

Green Power light blinking


Check the resolution in the Windows while connected to the old monitor. If greater than 1280 X 1024 and/or the refresh rate exceeds 75 Hz, the monitor may not respond. But you should at least see the BIOS splash when the computer is turned on. If that does not appear, maybe a problem has occurred in the monitor. Another indicator: if you turn the monitor power button off and then back on, you should get some sign of life such as "no signal", or "out of range". If nothing appears, that would indicate some problem within the monitor.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Have you tried another monitor connected to the same computer? A blinking light usually means it's receiving no signal from the PC.

LG Flatron L1951S-SN 19 in. Flat Panel picture problem


When the picture disappears again take a flashlight and shine it in the bottom left hand corner where the Windows Start button is located. If you can see a faint image then your back light is failing. If that?s not the case the next step would be to attach another monitor to your computer to see if the problem disappears. If it does that points to the monitor, if it doesn?t then we need to take a look at the computer itself. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Blank Screen..Will not power off


The flash light test only works with lcd monitor as they have back lights. Double check the connections again, also, if you can borrow a monitor try it on your pc, it may be your graphics driver needs to be uninstalled and re-installed, but you will need a monitor to see.
