I spilt wine on my dell inspiron 1545. At first it would turn on and tell me there was a problem with the hard drive and suggested reseating it, however this didn't do anything. Now the laptop...

The sockets appear to be shorted. All you can do is to dismantle the laptop again, wash it thoroughly with demineralized water, dry it completely and see if that fixed it. If it hasn't then the motherboard has been damaged and it will have to be replaced.

My hard drive wont read it worked before dont know why

A disk-drive has several major components:
* the electronics circuit-board
* the power/data external connectors
* the motor that spins the disk-drive
* the read/write mechanism that moves above the recording surface
* the recording surfaces

No power means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead motor means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead electronics on the circuit-board means that nothing happens.

Damaged read/write mechanism.

Damaged recording surfaces.

Iomega ZIP drive Model Z10052 purchased in 1998. Disk is stuck inside. Have turned off electricity & used the paper clip as shown in Troubleshooting. Doesn't work, think maybe disk was put in wrong....

Some Iomega Zip drives suffer from what end users have dubbed "The Click of Death". The symptoms of the drive meltdown under this conditions is that the disk will not eject and makes a distinct clicking noise when it attempts to spin up. I do not now if the Z10052 is specifically a model of the Zip drive that is effected by this problem.

I do know that others, though I have never had the occasion to use it myself, have had success with stick disks in ZIP drives by powering down the unit then re-powering it back up while holding the drive eject button in during the process [holding the button down the whole time]. They report this has caused the disk to eject.

Dell Inspiron 1150 - Wont boot & nothing on screen ??

The fans on this unit are thermostatically controlled and only turn on when the predefined processor temperature is reached, so upon turning the unit on It will spin up too full speed and then seem to shut down until it is needed.
If you are getting no beep tones and since you have already tested your memory, I am forced to assume that either your processor has retired or your cmos is wrong, Since you sound like you have already opened the unit then locate the clear cmos jumper/switch on the board and clear your cmos which will reset to defaults.....if you still have the same problem then I reccomend trying a different processor.

PowerBook G4 only DVD player spins

It really looks like the logicboard is cooked. You are getting power to the DVD, but something is arresting the start process as indicated by the fan starting and stopping. If your hard drive isn't spinning and the fan isn't starting and there is no video, you can either replace the logicboard or get a new computer. You might try reseating the RAM, which could have been knocked lose, but you probably won't get any help from that because at least some of the ram is soldered to the board, so you definitely have some still operating (or able to operate if there was a working board).

Logic boards are about $100-150 on eBay and since you have it open, you might as well swap it out. I think the G4 is still a great computer, so why not do it.

MSI - 845GLMS (MS-6754) powers off
Link to board.
This error message may occur if the primary disk group identity of the hard disk does not match the primary disk group identity that is stored in the registry. There wasn't anything wrong with your memory or PSU. (not the cause for blue screen).
If there is data on the primary drive than slave it into another system & copy the data to another drive or CD. The most common data to copy. My Documents, Favorits, Desktop. Users name(jeff), open Application Data, copy Identities. open Mocrosoft, copy Address Book.
What is needed is a fresh install of windows. You can either boot to windows through the cdrom & quick format before install or use the hard drive's utility disk software or CD/iso bootable's to redo the drive. I understand this is a replacement board & one would think that re-connecting everything the system should just boot but from time to time widows gets trashed in the prosses. Though the quick formatt is faster I prefer to use the Mfg's bootable ISO to make a bootable CD. Here you can also check the drive & MBR & pick size & even FAT type.
The choice's are up to you. Just make sure the bios is seeing the drive correctly.

Big Disk disapeared

before anyone can help you with this they would need to know the operating system you using and possibly the hardware your using, and anything that may have changed, moving equipment changing anything power outages unplugging anything, anything that happened before the problem occured, also does the disk make any new noises or is it not spinning, put your hand on the case while its off and turn it on you should notice a slight vibration start this means its at least spinning, also are the led's(lights) illuminating as they did before or are they flashing or an odd color, also how are you trying to access the drive, from a file manager(finder/explorer/etc.) or an application(imovie/windows movie maker/etc.) and where was the icon normally, if using a mac it should normally mount directly to the desktop by itself, in windows it will appear in my computer after it has mounted, open the device manager and check to see if windows can see it at all....right click on [my computer] and select [properties] then click on the [hardware] tab then click the [device manager] button, expand the usb list or whatever type of connection is used for the disk, and see if it shows up also check in the removable storage areas and the hard drive list.
