I have a Dell Optiplex GX520 m/c, when we switch it on, it's on/off switch light keeps blinking in Orange mode.


blinking power button indicates a low or missing voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

When trying to wireless connect my laptop through my desktop pc connection fails. Have tried reconfiguration of both the 'DLINK' modem and the Laptop without success.


Try resetting your desktop back top a static configuration. ie: Do not assign a ip.
You system will assign a ip of 192.168.0.1 most likely.
Now, disconnect your modem from its power source and remove its battery for 30 seconds.
Next, disconnect your power source to the router or hub.
Now, go ahead and hook up your power connections to the router and install your battery and power connection to your modem.
Allow your modem to fully setup before attempting to go further.
Now, reboot your desktop and try your normal internet connection..
If it works ok, leave it and go to your laptop.
Leaving the desktop unit on, startup your laptop.
Your laptop should see the static address from the desktop and assign itself a different number, one that does not conflict with the ip address of the desktop.
Hope this works out well for you.

HP a820n No Power-up after City Power Failure


You have a bad power supply. It is not an expensive fix. Remember HP's take HP power supplies. When ordering either look on ebay for your model or order from part supplier.

The power light keeps flashing orange when trying to switch my pc on i only get an orange flashing light no other life in it whatsoever........


It means to say that it is not getting enough power on the computer, check the power cable at the back of the tower and make sure the power cable is connected tightly. You can try taking it out and then putting it back in again to make sure it is connected firmly.

It is very difficult to get my Huawei HG520s modem to connect to talk talk broadband. i have tried all the configerations suggested by talk talk and no matter which filter is used or how many filters or...


must be your inside wirings. if you have a microfilter make sure you properly connect it. your modem suppose to be connected to your microfilter and your telephone line suppose to be connect on a different wall jack .
if your using a spliter to connect you phone and internet connection make sure splitter is connect properly to wall jack then the first line is for yor microfilter to your modem then the other line is for you phone line only.

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

Whenever you press the power button the modem does not turn on


Assuming you are calling the tower itself the modem, then the fault here is in the power supply. You need to replace the power supply.
