Check all cords and cables from PC to monitor. Also make sure the graphics card is properly seated into its slot in the motherboard. That is how I would start. If this doesn't help it might be the graphics card or monitor. Need more info.

How do I connect a 20X super all write to a Dell Dimension 1100 computer .The pins on the data lead apear to be different and the power lead apears to be missing from the unit I purchased.


Hi,

To my understanding, your new Lite-On LH-20A1L 20x Super AllWrite DVD±RW/RAM is a SATA whereas your Dell Dimension 1100 has only DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) EIDE. it will not work nor the connectors fit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

In the devce manager apears unkown devices


An interesting phenomena. Does everything apear to work correctly? If it does, when a driver for an "unknown device" is required Windows will install it.
Hope that answers your question

Contrast 10My problem is that the contrast is appearing in the screen of my flat screen and automatic decrees the contrast and it?s blocking the center part of the screen window keeps appearing on scr


There is no feasible way to fix this. The problem is a short in the circuitry of your flat screen. If the monitor is off warranty, it's cheaper to replace the monitor than to have it repaired.

Turn off panel display


Right click desktop background, Click Properties, Click Settings, Click Identify. what ever number apears on the laptop screen right click the screen icon number and click attached. This is going to tell the computer that you detached the primary screen and you will only have output to the external screen.

Hope this helps

When turn on the gateway screen apear, but the monitor turn off or black and not apear nothing my computer is gateway profile 4 all in one


Your power settings may need to be changed, it appears to be going into sleep mode or power saving mode.

If you are using Vista, Click Start> Control Panel > Power Options > "choose when to turn off display" (in the left hand pane) and check that it says at least 10 minutes. Click apply and then ok.

Alternatively, right click on your desktop, select "personalise" and click on screen saver - then select "change power settings" to bring you to the same thing.

If you have xp, right click on your desktop and select "properties" then "screensaver| > "Power" and change it to turn off the monitor after 10 minutes. Click apply then ok.

If your monitor is going to sleep, either press a key or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

My ACER aspire 5315 was purchased in may 08 apears to have no power and will not boot up - battery apears to have failed even when it is connected to the mains power.


try removing the battery, connecting it to main power and see if it then boots. that usually works for me; if so, then replace the battery.

GATEWAY 310


I wonder if that is a computer virus.

Try putting the computer into safe mode by shutting the computer down, wait 30 seconds, turn if back on.

At the beginning of the boot press and hold down the f8 button. Use the up and down arrow keys to select safe mode and press enter.

After windows finishes starting up in safe mode, restart your computer the normal way.

If the login screen still appears that way and you can get into safe mode, I can tell you how to go into the control panel and change the login screen to the other mode. That should work then.
