Hello I have a problem with my HP Pavillion m9277. When I switch the computer on it goes ok for about 5-10 seconds, cuts out for 5-10 seconds and then starts up again, but there is also nothing happening...


Hi Friend, As you have mentioned that your system goes off after 5-10 seconds and turns on again. I would recommend you to please unplug all the cables from the desktop and press and hold the power button of the system for 30 seconds, release it after 30 seconds and make the connections again.
Start your system again and check if your issue is fixed or not.
Also I would like you to check after turning on the system do you get any beeps from the system after which it goes off

Computer monitor don't work at all.


So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

Bootup prob with M2N68-AMPLUS with AMD 7750 CPU. It has a


A couple of things that could be causing this.
Have you tried plugging straight into a wall outlet rather than the UPS to see if you have the same problem? If plugging into the wall fixes it, you have a bad UPS.
Next, have you tried replacing the power supply? It could be that your power supply is either failing or underpowered for your PC components, especially if you have upgraded something like your video card.
It could be an overheating problem. Download the SpeedFan application (freeware...search Google for "speedfan") and look at your system temperatures. If they have the little fire icon next to them, check which component is having the problem. Replace or upgrade the fan for that component. If it's ambient case temps, additional intake and/or exhaust fans may help.
Upgrade all of your PC's drivers and firmware (available through Asus' website).
Remove all external, unnecessary devices (leaving just your mouse, keyboard, and monitor).
Last option could be failing components. Since you said you upgraded your RAM and HDD, that leaves power supply, video card, CPU, and motherboard. If possible, swap these out with another PC's parts. If not possible, I would start with power supply, then CPU, then video card, and then motherboard.

My PC often restarts automatically when the main supply goes.


Hook up your computer directly to a surge protector or wall outlet and leave it on for a while and see if it restarts automatically, if it doesn't then you know your computer is fine.

If your computer still restarts automatically even with it not hooked up to a UPS then you know at that point theres a problem with the computer and not the UPS backups that have been plugged up to it. At that point it can be anything from an operating system issue to a hardware issue.

Also if you can verify that the computer is fine without it being hooked to a UPS then make sure the next UPS you get you only hook up the desktop and the monitor to it. This is a good way to make sure not to many items are hooked up to it that may be drawing more amps then normal.

Syncmaster 932Gw stays in standby


Its possible that the cable from the laptop to the monitor is damaged. I would #1 make sure that the connection into the pc and into the monitor are both snug, if they are just slightly off it will keep the monitor from powering on. If they are snug, try another cable (if you have one) or hook the monitor to another pc (possibly your laptop, if it has a video out). Let me know if that solves the problem.

EMachine monitor quit


This could be one of three components:
1. The video card
2. Video Cable (cable from the monitor to the computer)
3. The Monitor

The way I would determine this is:


I would try to plug this monitor into another computer that you know works with other monitor. If this is a home computer and you don't have another computer to test this take it to a friends house. Use a different cable to connect the to computer and power if possible. Then switch out to the old hardware (e.g. power cable, video cable.) If all has been determined to work then it's probably the video card.


If you can do this at all I would suggest trying a new video cable they are cheap. Usually 10 bucks at the most or borrow on from someone else. If this is a DVI cable they are a little more expensive. VGA cables look like this btw http://www.networktechinc.com/cable-pc.html
