Cant start my computer. Only the power on light is showing

I had turned it off the normal way. When I wanted to switch it on the following day, it failed to start. The only other thing showing is the charging light. It was made in China. I bought it in Helsinki on 10.10. 008.

Gateway DX4822-01 power switch problems


The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Main wires such as Power On LED, Power On switch, HarDDrive activity LED, and Reset switch; IF used.

Suggest KEEP track of where those wires go!

Make a drawing, and notes. I even use a magic marker, (Sharpee?), and make a notation of the Front Panel header pinout, on the floor of the computer case.

In this particular case it isn't known if the Power On switch is the problem, or the Power Supply.

Power On switch;
Power UNPLUGGED to computer, Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED; (Don't know? Post back in a Comment),

Remove the twisted pair of W/B and W/G wires, to the Power On switch pins, in the Front Panel header.

Plug power back into computer.
Use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and touch the two Power On switch pins. (Jewelers screwdriver works well for this application)

Power Supply comes on? Bad Power On switch.
Allow Windows to fully load, run for a few minutes; then turn the computer off normally.

Jump the two Power On switch pins again.
Power Supply comes on? You DEFINITELY have a bad Power On switch.

Power Supply does NOT come on?
We will go to a further diagnostic test then.
Awaiting results for first test, then we will go on.

Post back in a Comment.

As luck would have it I'm 60, and learned how to program your 0141224 wall switch timer.
You can see instructions with big print and pictures on following page.
Press CTRL key on keyboard and use scroll wheel on mouse to make web print bigger.

Add a comment any time.

You have wired your timer correctly and the lights turn on when you push on-off button.
If lights do not turn on, we need to review the wiring.
Your timer looks like photo below.
geno_3245.gif

I'm going to parrot back the manual with some extra words.
To start, press the reset button and clear any programming

Programing overview:
Each program has ON time ... and OFF time
So you set program1 ON and then set program1 OFF
When you set program1 ON, you choose the Day, hour and minute you want program1 to turn ON.
And then you set program1 OFF, and choose Day, hour and minute for program1 to turn OFF.
Your ON-OFF times for program1 should be on same days.
For example program1 ON for all-days-of-the-week, but program1 OFF is for TU Tuesday, then timer will not work.
IN this case, program1 OFF should also be set for all-days-of-the-week.
Let's start.

Setting the clock:
Press and hold CLOCK button
Keep holding CLOCK button and press DAY button until display shows current day (MO TU WE TH FR SA SU)
Press Hour button until current hour with am pm displays
Press MIN button until current minute displays.
Release clock button and current day and time show on display
At no other part of instructions do you press and hold one button while pressing other button.

Setting programs:
Press PROG button until "1" and 'ON' show on display
This is program1 ON
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 ON.
You can choose: all-days-of-the-week and MO TU WE TH FR SA SU show on display
Choose individual days and MO or TU etc shows in display
Choose weekdays MO TU WED TH FR
Weekends SA SU show in display
Next step
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 ON
Press MIN to select minute for program1 ON

Now program1 ON is ready, next, you will set program1 OFF

Press PROG button until "1" and 'OFF' shows on display
This is program1 OFF
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 OFF.
( Remember, you want same days for ON and OFF)
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 OFF
Press MIN to select minute for program1 OFF

Now program1 ON and OFF are ready, next, you will set program2 ON by repeating same steps above.
You can set up to 7 programs.
If you don't want to set program2, or any more programs, that's fine.

To exit programming and save your program, press CLOCK.
Now current time shows in display.

Final step: set MODE
Press MODE button until AUTO shows in display. You want AUTO for programming to operate lights. That's it, timer is ready.
If you're going on vacation, press MODE button until RDM shows in display, and then timer turns lights on-off at random

Copy and save these instructions to your computer so you have them next year.

Delete the printer icon. Power down your computer. Disconnect your printer cable. Power the computer on. After you log into the system, reconnect your printer cable. If the printer is found, install the driver. If not found, your printer cable may be faulty or problem with printer if you cannot print a test page.

Hope this helps.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor not coming on - Packard Bell Easynote R4650


It's a dreadful way to start a day - you press the power button on your computer and nothing happens. Do not fear because all may not be lost! Follow these simple steps to determine why your computer won't turn on.

Note: It is very important to troubleshoot any issue beginning with the most likely and easily testable problem so be sure to follow these steps in order.
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours or more depending on why the computer won't turn on
Here's How:

As silly as it may sound, the number one reason why a computer won't turn on is because it wasn't turned on! Before starting a sometimes time consuming troubleshooting process, make sure you've turned on every power switch and power button associated with your computer:
Power button/switch on the front of the computer's case.
Power button/switch on the front and/or back of the monitor.
Power switch on the power supply on the back of the computer.
Power switch on the power strip or surge protector (if you have one).

Verify that the power supply voltage switch is correctly set. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on.

Check for loose computer and monitor power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer doesn't turn on.

Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly.

A damaged power supply could be preventing the computer from being properly powered.

Do a quick test of the power supply by holding your hand behind the power supply fan located at the rear of the case. If the power supply is working, you should feel air from within the case blowing against your hand. If not, you may need to replace the power supply.

Tip: Is the power light on the front of the computer's case on? If you've turned the power switch on but the light is off, this is another good indication that the power supply is the cause of this issue.

Over time, internal components and the cables that connect them can wiggle loose which can often times result in a computer unable to power on. Try reseating the following and then try to power on the computer again:
Reseat the internal cables
Reseat the memory modules
Reseat the video card
Reseat other expansion cards

Reseating the CPU may also be necessary but should only be attempted if the reseating of all other components is not successful. This is due to the fact that this process is a little more involved and can run a small risk of damage to the CPU. This isn't a big concern if you're careful, so don't worry!

Check for causes of electrical shorts in the computer case. This is often the cause of the problem when the computer powers on for a second or two but then powers off completely.

Most monitors have a small light next to the power button that can change between various colors. If the screen is blank, this light is your main source of information about the monitor.

If this light is not on at all, double-check the power switch and connections (Steps 1, 2 and 3) and also make sure the monitor cable is securely plugged in to the video card port on the back of the computer case. If the light is still off, replace the monitor. If it comes back on, try starting your computer again - a loose or unplugged monitor cable may have been the issue all along.

An amber or yellow power light simply means that the monitor is not receiving any information from the computer. In and of itself, this doesn't tell us much.

On the other hand, if the light is amber or yellow, the computer power light is on, and the hard drive is active (making familiar sounds and the hard drive activity light on the computer case is blinking), the computer is probably starting normally but the video card is not sending information to the monitor. Replace the video card.

Beep codes (see Step 11) usually sound when a video card has malfunctioned but this is not always the case.

Is your computer making a beeping sound? Sometimes a computer will turn on just enough to play a series of beeps from the speakers.

These beep codes play in particular sequences and represent a specific problem that your computer is having. Troubleshoot the beep code to figure out what it's saying and then service the computer as necessary.
Tips:

Still can't get your computer to turn on? Let a community of computer support enthusiasts help out! Post the details of your problem in the Focus on PC Support Forums.
