What does it mean when phone is on desktop loop


Hi Shaundra,

A loop line or loop around is a telephone company test circuit. The circuit has two associated phone numbers. When one side of the loop is called (side A), the caller receives a test tone of approximately 1000 Hz(milliwatt test). When the second number (side B) is called, it produces dead silence, but the party on side A hears the milliwatt test tone drop, and is connected to the person on side B. The purpose of the loop around test is to allow circuit testing to a distant central office without needing a person at the far end. The technician can send a tone down either line and measure the response tone on the second line to determine the path loss parameters.

Compaq cq1-1225 all-in-one desktop computer stuck in screen pattern loop at startup


Try a hardware reset.
Pull the battery out, unplug it from the adapter, and hold your finger on the power button for about a minute.
If you still can't get into the bios by pressing F10 of F2, i forget which one it is, try pulling ONE of the memory chips out.....try again....then the other memory chip and put the other one back in to eliminate any chance of faulty memory.

Good Luck!

Screen does not turn on but green light is on.


Green light indicates the monitor is getting power. Nothing coming up on the screen indicates, No Signal.

No signal from the computer. This means the computer itself isn't working.

A bad power supply in the computer can cause this. A bad power supply is the leading cause of desktop computer failure. It is replaceable, and can be done by the owner relatively easy.

You may have a computer tower that the Power light comes on, you hear fan/s spinning, (Including the Power Supply fan), and it sounds like the harddrive is running.

ALL the lights in your computer use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
A harddrive sitting there spinning in an endless loop, consumes about 2 to 3 Watts.

A Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

A weak Power Supply will have enough power for lights, fans, and that harddrive sitting there spinning.
It won't have enough power to turn on the Processor.

[No processor operating, then the harddrive sits there spinning in an endless loop, because there is no processor to find the boot sector]

For a test, connect your monitor to a know good computer. See if it works.
Now connect that other monitor to your computer.

Desktop screen won't stay on


how old is your screen, if its older than 2-3 years mostly its gone and you need to replace it. If its in warranty then contact dell customer support. Life of screen can be around 3 years after that i may not work.
Another test is to connect it to some other computer and see if its working, then we can focus on some output issue from the CPU.

Apple G5 Locked up


Sounds like you have a permissions issue, first boot in single-user mode and repair permissions.
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck

Mac OS X: How to start up in single-user or verbose mode

If that doesn't help, try booting into Safe Mode and see what happens, if it comes up hopefully another restart may solve, if not, you can at least use this as a starting point to try and resolve. Safe Mode will allow you to get around, surf, etc...

If Safe Mode comes up alright, I would install AppleJack, excellent troubleshooting article can be found here... Troubleshooting Tools: AppleJack

Desktop start up problem


I would suggest that you get a copy of Ultimate boot cd or Hirens cd and run that if you can boot from cd. Then use the disk repair tools to help diagnose the problem. If you have anymore information that would help too.
