    I forgot to add that I can turn my CPU on anytime. That part will power up but the monitor, mouse and keyboard will not.

    That is very strange. Have you tried unplugging everything, turning on the computer, letting it run about 20 minutes, pressing the power button once to shut it down, plugging everything back in, then powering on the computer?

    It's possible that it will, "unlock" the system. A CMOS reset might also be helpful.

Well, when my emachine did this, I was informed the "power toggle" was "gone" and that basically it would cost more to fix than to replace. I suggest you have this looked at as I suspect you will be given similar information.
Wish I had better news. Good Luck!

Hook up to home pc


Today's laptops and desktop computers are more user-friendly. As more people start use computers, operating systems, software and hardware accessories are coming with better instruction manuals and streamlined interfaces. Here are a few basic steps to hook up your computer no matter which brand you bought.

Connect the power cable to the back of the computer tower. The male end of this plug is often on the computer, but it is recessed into the casing. Once this power plug is connected, you don't want to plug it into an outlet until the entire computer is set up. Attach the monitor cables to the back of the monitor and then to the back of the computer tower. This cable will probably be the VGA type, which has a wide set of prongs in the middle and two screws on the outside. Be sure to twist the screws in to ensure the cable has a solid connection. Secure the monitor's power cable to the back of the monitor and then plug it into an outlet or power strip. Attach the mouse to the USB port on the back of your keyboard. The keyboard then plugs into another USB port on the back of the computer tower. Turn on the computer and the monitor.

If the computer powers up but the monitor doesn't display anything, make sure the VGA monitor cable is secured. If the status light on your monitor doesn't turn on, check the power cable connection. Check that the mouse and keyboard work once the computer turns on. Now you can hook up other devices, such as a printer or a web cam. A printer often can connect to a USB port and also may have its own power cable; a web cam usually just plugs into a USB or firewire port.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

My monitor will not stay on, it goes on sleep mode


Hi,
Your problem may be due to the sleep button in your keyboard may got struct into when you cleaned your keyboard.
Try to resolve the struct in the keys, if any.
Restart your system and if still your problem persists, then remove your keyboard and restart your computer and try with some other keyboard if possible. Once if you find out that the problem is with your keyboard, then replace the keyboard / service the existing one.'

I hope this is helpful to you. Please provide your ratings.
Thanks

No start up - constant fan - no mouse or keyboard working


Update drivers for the mouse and keyboard. I also recommend installing "Glary Utilities" which is a free registry optimezer and corrects and registry errors in the system

MY WIRELESS MOUSE IS NOT WORKING


If the mouse is only a week or so old, you can still return it or have it replaced under warranty if need be.
First, go into the device manager and uninstall the mouse, then disconnect the receiver unit ad reboot the computer. Then plus the receiver back in and the computer should reinstall the needed controls for it.
if the mouse is not moving at all, check the batteries, they can go dead sitting on shelves.
Last shot is to contact Belkin at 1 800 2BELKIN or email at this address: http://www.belkin.com/support/contact/email/?lid=en and complete the selection.

Sounds like there may be more than one problem, so first let's make sure you shut the computer down completely:

1) Press and HOLD the power button on the computer tower until it goes completely dark. A single press often puts the computer in sleep mode, so holding the key for approximately 5 seconds usually forces a power off. After doing that, If you're still not sure if it powered off, unplug the AC power cord from the back of the computer tower for a few seconds and plug it back in. Now, make sure all other cables (monitor, keyboard, mouse) or wireless USB adapters for keyboard and mouse are securely plugged in where they are supposed to be.
2) Press the power button on the computer tower briefly to turn it back on.
3) Everything may be working now, but if not:
a) Monitor still dark? Make sure the monitor is on and plugged in, also, there is often an input source button on the bezel of the monitor to toggle between input sources (such as VGA, DVI and even HDMI). Press and wait a few seconds for a picture, repeat slowly at least 3 times.
b) Keyboard or mouse still not working? If wireless, make sure they have fresh batteries and that the wireless USB adapter is plugged into a USB port firmly. If wired, make sure the cables are plugged in firmly into the correct places on the back of the computer.

If all that fails, your new computer may be faulty and need to be returned to where you purchased it.
