Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Equium 100 will not resume from hibernation. Neither battery nor AC indicators illuminate unless battery is removed, AC connected and battery re-installed. Battery shows [and should be] fully charged. When pressing power on button various keyboard lights flash but no boot up and both power indicators go out.

Hi there
Sounds like the motherboard is faulty if all you get is led flashing on and off. Try it on AC power only, if it boots there is a problem with the battery, if it does not its most certainly the motherboard.
I do take it this is a laptop and not a desktop

Regards

Doesn't turn on unless plugged into ac adaptor


You may have to replace the battery or it's possible there's a short circuit on the battery line that's why it's not charging.

Might be stuck in hibernation. Pull the battery and ac power for about 1 hour. Replace and try to boot. If fails, pull the battery and try to boot just off ac power.

Set a power on password and cannot remember it for compaq c300


we need to remove the battery (cmos) for a bit to clear the passwords, heres how:
Before you begin any removal or installation procedures:
1. Shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the
computer is off or in hibernation, turn the computer on,
and then shut it down through the operating system.
2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer.
3. Disconnect the power cord.
4. Loosen the Phillips PM2.5×5.0 captive screw that
secures the memory/Mini Card module compartment cover
to the computer. (bottom of laptop)will see memory chips or slot when the cover is opened.
5. Lift the right side of the cover and swing it up and to the
left and remove it.
6. Make note of which antenna cable is attached to which
antenna clip on the Mini Card module, and then disconnect
the auxiliary and main antenna cables from the Mini
Card module.
7. Remove the two Phillips PM2.0×4.0 screws that secure the
Mini Card module to the computer.
8. Remove the Mini Card module by pulling the module away
from the socket at an angle .
Reverse the above procedure to install a Mini Card module
9. Remove the RTC battery from the socket on the
system board.
10. Wait approximately 5 minutes.
11. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.
12. Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any
batteries at this time.
13. Turn on the computer.
All passwords and CMOS settings have been cleared.
I leave the new password field blank unless you have worries about someone changing your settings in the BIOS.

Laptop compaq presario f500,running vista.Wireless is not working,Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)


Matt Sydney Aug 4, 2008 00:28:44 GMT 10 pts
I experienced this problem last night, and seemed to have fixed it this morning.

SYMPTOMS: HP Pavilion dv9000, Win Vista x64 Ultimate. Running on battery, battery level became critical; windows went into 'Hibernate' mode. Upon plugging in to mains power, and resuming the Windows session, the Wireless is still disabled, no matter what position the switch is in.


POSSIBLE CAUSE: Critical battery switches off the wireless network card to preserve power. Motherboard seems to log this status but when re-connecting to mains power the card does not receive power again. Uninstalling the driver and getting Windows to re-install automatically upon re-boot does not work.


SOLUTION: Charge up the battery whilst the computer is running. You can charge it to a substantial level, say, above 25%. Disconnect mains power so that your laptop is running on battery only. Set your wireless switch to OFF (this is usually to the left position, away from the orange indicator). Now run your computer down to the critical battery level again (perhaps overnight). In the morning when you press the power button, the 'CHARGE' indicator (looks like a lightning bolt) on the front of the laptop should flash quickly, indicating that there is no charge in the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop's underside. Wait a couple of seconds, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Keeping the battery off the laptop, reconnect mains power. Boot up your PC. When at the Windows desktop and all your startup programs have finished loading, switch your wireless on (to the right position). You should now have a blue light, and wireless should once again be working. You can now re-insert your battery. You might have to setup your wireless network connection again as mine seemed to be 'lost', but at least hopefully the main problem is now fixed.
