Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Battery charger on quantum electric wheelchair starts out ember color then starts flashing red I check wires everything is plugged check it about 3 months ago everything was ok now th chair won't


Did you charge it at all during the 3 months? Did you store chair on a full charge? Check to see if batteries are dead. Batteries should be disconnected and/or stored on a full charge. If left connected they should be fully charge every week.

Car will not start


this doesn't sound good at all. if you couldn't jump start it within a few minutes, you should have stopped right there. maybe you were jumpping the car wrong, from doing so, you may have fried the computer, that rounds your entire engine. try installing a new battery, if any codes were stored in the computer, clear them out. some times just removing the battery cables for a few minutes will do this . sometimes not. try to start the engine. donot jump start, see if will start on its own. if not, seek professional help, keep blaming goodyear until you get results !!!!!!

My laptop is completely dead, fine yesterday. Today no lights, sounds nothing. I tried removing the battery , unplugging no response. Thanks,


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes... Then put it back and then plug in the charger and switch on the charger. If the battery is completely drained, it would take a while for the charging to initiate. Please have patience and leave it on charging even though without the charging indication for at least an hour. After that still if the charging indicator doesn't lit, then its definitely your charger or laptop. You will need to take it to a service centre in that case.

Battery was tested good, but still in the morning it is dead, i check to see if anything is on, lights, radio or anything that might discharge it but nothing. could you help me out?


Check for a good/clean connection on your battery terminals. If they have crud on them, disconnect the terminals & clean everything off with a wire brush & if possible, you can use some baking soda or even a Coke to help get the crud off. Rinse everything off & let it dry a bit (check the water level in the battery too - if the cells dry out, that'll kill it). Hook the connections back up good & tight. Then try to start the car - if that's not it. Get a jump, then go to Auto Zone, O'Reilley's, etc and get the battery & the starter checked. I'm betting it's either a poor connection, bad battery or your starter is going out. Start with your connections - sometimes it's just a bad battery cable/terminal & that's an easy fix.
Also think about getting the alternator checked (Autozone, O'reilly's or even Pep Boys can do that for free). If the alternator is out or going out, it's not charging your battery - that means everything electrical in your car is now trying to run directly off the battery & draining it (it doesn't take long - especially if the lights or A/C is on). If those check out ok, take it into a mechanic & have them run a diagnostic - you may have a relay out. Good Luck.

My blackberry 7105t won't switch on even battery is ok. i even tried charging it with different charger and connecting it to pc yet nothing happen--blank screen & led light not lit.


Hi there. It sounds like the USB connector has broken off the phones motherboard. You can order a replacement part from www.cnn.cn and replace it yourself. You're looking for the USB charging port. If you're not comfortable taking apart the phone and soldering, your best bet is a new phone. Alex

My toshiba m105-s3004 is dead set even if i plug the charger


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

The laptop doesn't boot. Its dead. I tried connecting the charger, but it doesn't shows any signs of charging. It doesn't even show the laptop is charging.i.e no led is lit when charger is connected.Please...


Hi.

If it is completely dead check the voltage at power adapter DC contacts using a multimeter.

If there is voltage within 0.5 Volts from specifications, then try starting the laptop with no internal battery. A shorted battery may cause the laptop not starting.

If battery and adapter are OK, then the problem is the DC socket in the laptop motherboard. The laptop must be taken apart and the solder joints soldered back. This is a delicate job and must be done by an experienced repairer.

In some case the whole power circuit or the main board may be faulty. Testing is done reading Ohms at DC socket solder joints on main board (or power board, depending on model).

Regards.

Ginko.

Car is completely dead, like somebody shot it dead! No sounds, no light, can't shift out of park into neutral or anything....everything completely dead...no warning whatsoever!


Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.
