Question about Computers & Internet
Usually when I have a couple of programs running, the screen will suddenly freeze and nothing responds. Software Manager won't open, Alt F4 doesn't work. The only way to get out is to power down. I've tried all the defrag and optimising routines. Help! Save my thinning hair!
While your savvy friend was in there Gerry, do you know if said friend replaced the Thermal Paste on the Processor? (And Graphics chipset)
Thermal Paste dries up due to age, and the repeated heating from Processor. (And Graphics chipset. Also known as G.P.U.,
Looses it's thermal conductivity.
See if BIOS Setup has a Hardware Monitor option, and watch the temperatures.
If you want to know more about the internal hardware inside you all-in-one, you can download the free CPU-Z from CPUID.com,
CPU (Processor), Caches, (Processor), Mainboard, (Motherboard), Memory, (Ram Memory), SPD, (Serial Presence Detect - Ram Memory), Graphics, (Graphics chipset info), and About.
When CPU-Z opens it automatically opens to the CPU tab.
1.62 setup, english in purple > Download now! in purple > Click on Save File > Allow it to fully download > DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(Microsoft 'squawk box' = Click on Run)
DOUBLE-click on CPU-Z desktop icon.
If I may ask;
1) How was the Back Stand removed?
A) Were there any hidden screw/s under labels/stickers?
B) Is there a tab to depress, or lift to release the Back Stand once the screw/s are removed?
C) How many screws?
2) Was the Back Cover removal next? Screws around the outside perimeter are normal design, and easily found; were there any hidden screw/s?
3) Back Cover 'pop off' like the Palm Rest Cover on a laptop does?
The Back Cover will have Tabs, that match Latches going around the computer Front Panel. They have to be pried on WITH finesse, and released.
I realize you may, or may not have been present during disassembly.
I would ask for any information relating to this, not only for myself, but for MANY people in the future who search for this on the internet.
Disassembly procedures that you/friend have done is enough to disassemble further, for deeper problems; or to access just replacing the LCD screen.
Most Display Bezel's have screws that are accessed ONLY from the INSIDE. Meaning the Back Cover has to be removed, in order to replace the LCD screen.

SOURCE: Blank screen. Won't turn on.
You could have an overheating problem. The CPU shutsdown when it overheats and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. Check the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. The fan may have stopped spinning or spins slowly and the heatsink is clogged with dust.
Remove the dust and replace the fan if it is faulty.

Most likely you have another chat program using the camera. Right click on the icons in the systray next to the clock and exit programs. After exiting each program, try the camera again. The last program you exit before the camera is the one causing the problem. Restart the computer and right click on that program and try and set it to not start when the Windows starts.
