    Some usual causes include virus infection, low memory and the hard drive is getting full. You probably have the first covered since you have an antivirus program, right? The second will cost you and can be difficult to obtain. The third one is pretty easy to solve. Getting there is a little different depending upon your version of Windows (98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista). Basically, you right-click on "My Computer" on your desktop and select Explore. Then, right-click on your C: drive and select Properties. Once that's done, click on the Tools tab. Click the Defragment option. A window will appear showing your drive(s) with a couple of buttons. Analyze and Defragment. You can cut to the chase by clicking Defragment. Note that this may take from a few minutes to over an hour, depending upon how full your drive is. Check the %Free Space. It should not be less than 10% or so. If so, you can clear up some space by clicking on the General tab and then click the Disk Cleanup button. This will take some time, too.

I have a MPC ClientPro414 and I had turned it off when I went to turn it on the screen will not come on. We do not have the install disc and am not sure what to do? The screen dose not light up to see it...


Usually computers make beep sounds when starting up.

Do you hear any of the beep sounds?
If you hear two beeps with an interval of a couple of second, than the computer should be ok.

It could also be the monitor. Try connecting the monitor to a computer that works, or try connecting a working monitor to your computer. If the computer lights up with another monitor, then the monitor is faulty.

If the computer still is not starting up with a working monitor, than the videocard of the computer should be checked next.

For k_akima The camera operates normally on my work computer and at one time worked fine on my home computer. Something must have changed on the home computer.


Try to go on control panel >> system >> hardware tab >> Hardware manager button (or something like this) then uninstall the web cam. Use some kind of Register cleaner (regcleaner for example). install you web cam again. it should work.

I have an HP pavilion 533w ,old computer,wouldn't work, but i took out this memory card (512mb-ddr pc333) it started working.Now the computer runs slow,how do I reinstall memory card so that everything...


You can go ahead and do that but if the computer stops working again it means the memory is bad. You need to purcahse another memorycard for the better computer performance.

Or if you still have computer warranty call the manufacturer and ask them to replace your memory card.

I bent the insert on the drive and it work?


I would first try it in a different computer. If it does not work on the other computer it is unlikely it would work anywhere. It is possible you can take it to a local computer tech service and they can try and read or fix it, but I would think it is unlikely.

If it does work on the other computer I would inspect the USB port for damage on your computer. Or the place where you plug in the flash drive into the computer, if it looks at all damaged, I would contact the manufacture for repair. You can also try other usb devices to check if it still works.

As well if the flash drive does work on other computers, and there is no visible damage to the USB port, or plug in spot, then there may be a driver or software issue on your computer.

Does not wake with computer


If your monitor doesn't power on when your computer powers on, try resetting the computer, double-check the video / monitor cable, double check the power cables to both the computer and monitor. If this doesn't help, try putting a different monitor on the computer and see if it works - if the other monitor doesn't work, the problem is probably your computer. You might have to get it serviced at a computer shop or by the manufacturer. If the other monitor works, your first monitor needs servicing or replacement.

Problem with computer running


It sounds like it's overheated. If you can do this, remove the covers and check the CPU fan and make sure it's running and not full of "bunnies'. Check the heatsink under the fan for dust also. Check the power supply fan to see if it is moving air. If you can, try running without the side panel to see if more air works....
