Try switching your power cable with te one from another pc, if that doesnt help check wether the on/off button on your power supply is turned on. If that doesnt help either I'll need more info about what those lights indicate.

Fix a HP DV5200 that will not boot


faulty CPU most likely. take the CPU out and get a replacement from EBAY etc. get some isoproyl alcohol and some thermal paste from there too. warning: you will need to reformat your hard drive as the BIOS settings will most certainly be different and you will probably get the BSOD (blue screen of death) by trying to cold reboot from the same hard drive. back everything up first. take the hard drive out and get a caddy and backup to another machine.

Dell c521 motherboard diagrams problems


Per Dell's support site: If the power light is a solid amber, a device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed.

Turn off the computer and unplug from power:

I would remove and unplug everything except the memory and video card. Then plug the computer back in.
If it posts (dell screen and then a hard drive warning), turn off the computer and start reinstalling each component one at a time and turn on between each install. Hopefully one compenent will fail and you will know what is bad and needs replacing.
If the computer still had the amber light, remove one of the memory modules (hoping you have 2) and try again. If it still fail exchange the modules. If this works you have a bad memory chip, reinstall the rest the componets to double check and power on. Replace the bad chip.
If the computer still fails on both modules, remove both, you should now get a memory beep code, if not then the video card is most likely bad and will need to be replace.

Hope this helps

Pc can't detect harddrive


Try this, take and unplug the drive from the computer and do a reboot of the computer. Then once your computer is back up, try plugging in the drive again and that should take care of it. If it does not, Go to the Start Menu, then Control Panel, then System. Click on the Hardware Tab and then click on the Device manager button. In the right side of the screen you should see a little yellow icon on the drive in question. Right click on the device and select uninstall. Then reboot your again and plug in the drive.

I have a Dell Dimension 4550 running windows XP Home. I just recently purchased a new DVD drive(Sony Optiarc AD-7221A) and I can't get it to work. The first drive I tried was a Lite-on DVD burner, and now...


sounds like you have issues with your hard drive.  go to start>run.
type this in without the " "
"cmd", hit ok.  a black screen pops up.  type "cd.." and hit enter.  type in "cd.." and hit enter again.  type "chkdsk c: /f /r".  It will say the drive can not be checked, it is in use.  hit "y" to schedule a check at boot up.  type"exit" and reboot your computer.  let me know if this helps.

My new Sony Optiarc AD-7221A DVD drive won't work


for your old sony drive that wont open...

look fort a small hole, like a little bigger than a pinhole, in the front panel of the drive. if you can find this hole, stick a straightened-out paperclip or something similar in the hole, and gently force it in, and this should open the cd drive.

a page file error has to do with ram saving to and reading from the hard drive, using a portion of the hard drive as back-up virtual ram. perhaps there is a bad sector on the hard drive, or some other sort of error with either the hard drive or ram to cause the "page file error" and the inability to play dvd's.

if you can get that old drive to work, that may be your best bet.
