I was replacing my power button and a few things got mixed up

Ok. so my friend had asked to borrow my power button, and after i had taken it out my mom said he cant , and to put it back in. so me nor my friend have small enough fingers to replace the wires that we disconnected to get the power button out. a few trys later i got them all hooked up, but when i turn on my computer my monitor doesnt connect to the tower and i get a black screen. realizing some wires must be messed up, i am on my laptob trying to figure out how to re setup my wires correctly. any help would be more then generous.

I would recheck to make sure all your PCI cards are well seated in thier slots and recheck your monitor cable connection to the tower. If after this you still have the same problem, verify you have made the correct connections with the cable(s) that were unplugged when you removed the power switch. Also, look to make sure no pins are bent when you replaced the connections. Good luck.

Take a closer look on the pins you should see that there are small little words around the pins.

or you can take a look at the operator manual which came along with your computer.

No Power on Hp 620 Laptop


If the battery does not charge then the problem is likely the charger.
If you can borrow a charger instead of buying a new one you can find out for sure if the problem is the inside the laptop its self or the charger.
Remove the battery and hold down the standby button for a whole minute to drain any remaining power in the model. replace the battery , attach the new/borrowed charger lead and see if any activity happens ie, sound, lights...ect. This is the first thing someone does in a repair shop and its to diagnose where the issue is comming from.

My HP A735W is turning on but stays in power save mode and no key board or mouse function


I think the issue is your monitor. If the monitor constantly says Power Save Mode and not let anything else display then the monitor might be bad. See if we can isolate the problem by the steps below.

Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if the monitor works ok.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.


Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).

Getting scratches on screen


Sound like your monitor is about to go out. Try a different monitor to make sure. Borrow one from a relative, friend, neighbor or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor does ok without the scratches and lines, then your original monitor is going bad. If the borrowed monitor does the same thing, then your video card inside the computer is going bad.

Black screen just after boot window from USB


Sounds like either the monitor or video card inside the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a friend, neighbor, relative or co-worker and plug it into the computer. If the borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor does the same thing and not show a display then your video card inside the computer is bad.

Acer One Laptop; Lights come on- screen stays dark.


The Power On Self Test (POST) evidently encountered a problem with one of the main components. Most likely it's the hard drive.
Was the machine dropped or hit?

The power button no longer works. IS the


Probably the power supply. See if you can borrow a friend's power supply (not Dell) and temporarily replace the one in your computer with the borrowed one.
