Check first if the CPU is working by connecting an external monitor. Do not forget to activate the external monitor connection (function keys). If the computer works llike this, then the monitor is probably defective. If it did not work, dont waste effort in checking the LCD.

My Lenovo T61 is not troubleshooting. It was infected by an virus, How can I restart the computer? Please help


Hi,

ThinkPad computers have what we call the service partition, which can set the computer back to its factory stated even without the recovery disc. The service partition can be accessed by pressing the Access ThinkPad or Access IBM button during start up.

Prior to performing a software recovery, Lenovo recommends returning your system to it's original factory configuration by removing all hardware that has been added to your system.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:


To start the Product Recovery program, press F11



This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.

Select Full Recovery to get rid of the viruses. Wait for it to complete and your computer will be back to when it was fresh as new.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! a 4 thumbs up if this helped will be greatly appreciated.

A friend of mine gave me his laptop to see what was wrong with it... It powers up but the screen stays blank and the cd/dvd drive light comes on and stays on. The drive wont open. And the fan wont turn on....


Hi, sounds like his friend has put the wrong memory chip in this machine. I would put the old memory chip back in, and then check with the Toshiba website for the correct upgrade.
Come back to me if you need more help

if its not too late (under 12 months) call acer right away and get warranty processed. they will fix any hardware issues its having for free..make sure you have a data backup first. you can also try a factory restore aswell and see if that corrects the issue (again make sure you have your data backed up).

Compaq Armada M700, Dim Screen


There is a dimmer function that is part of the keyboard on most notebooks. You use the Fn key and some other key (Mine is F1 and F1) Look for what looks like Sun in blue print on the key. You should find 2 of them. One will be the brightness up and the other brightness down. You can try those.

More likely, something has come loose internally.
1. It could be the backlight for the screen is broken or a connection loose. You should be able to see the light when you look at the side of the display.
2. The AC power connector may have been broken and the notebook is only on battery power. By default most systems are dimmer when on battery power. Check to see if your charge indicator light is on. If not, that may be the problem.

I hope this helps.
