You did not mention which laptop model you have, which makes a diagnostic a little bit difficult.
The light you describe (3 discs) indicates that either the internal hard drive or optical drive is being accessed.
That is generally ok, if you read or write from your hard drive or you have a CD/DVD running.

It CAN indicate that you do not have sufficient memory installed and the RAM can't handle all the requests, so it has to write and read constantly to and form the hard drive. This is called "Memory swapping". This happens also if you are not doing anything that involves the hard or CD drive (in idle).

This would answer your question, but if you need any other information, come back here and let me know. In that case it would be helpful to know which operating system you are running and how much RAM you have installed.

My compaq 6515b is not displaying anything just power led remains on after switching on the laptop what may be the problem


The first thing I would try would be to wait for the machine to completely start. Even though you can't see the display you should be able to see the hard drive light solid for a while, then start to flash quickly, then it will slow down the flashing after about a minute to a slow pace or intermittent flashing. After the hard drive light stops flashing quickly, press and hold the "Fn" key (left side bottom row next to Cntrl), then press F4, then release, see if that brings back your picture.

Laptop turns on fine but screen is black


Try plugging in a regular computer monitor into the back of the laptop. If it works, that tells me that possibly your laptop's display is bad. There is probably a socket in the back that looks like this: h9rbwygu6jioaaaaabjru5erkjggg==

My watch is stuck on military time somehow. I would like to know how to change it back to normal time. My watch is a Armitron Alarm/Chrono WR 165 sports watch. The number on the back is 45/6915. Thanks for...


Welcome to Fixya,


The Armitron WR165 is a digital watch that includes a 24-hour alarm, hourly chime, stopwatch feature, countdown timer and is water resistant up to 165 feet. With a rubber wristband and rugged style, the watch is meant for outdoor enthusiasts and athletes. The WR165 can be found online, in some sporting supply stores and in certain department or general home stores. Setting the Armitron WR165 only takes a few steps to perform properly.


1 - Push the top button on the left-hand side of the watch until the seconds flash on the display.Press the top button on the right-hand side to zero the seconds.


2 - Push the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch until the hours flash and then the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to increase the hour on the watch display. Note that "PM" will appear on the watch display for PM times, but there is no "AM" indicator on the display.


3 - Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch until the minutes flash on the display.Press the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to increase the minutes on the display.


4 - Repeat to set the month, date and weekday on the watch. Press the top button on the left-hand side of the watch to return to time mode.


5 - Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch to enter the stopwatch mode. Press the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to start the timer. Press one more time to stop timing. Press the top button on the left-hand side of the watch to reset the stopwatch to zero and the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch to return to time mode.


6 - Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch twice to set the alarm. Press the top button on the left-hand side of the watch until the hours flash on the display. Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch until the alarm number flashes. Press the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to choose Alarm Time 1 or Alarm Time 2. Push the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch again until the hours flash. Push the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to choose the alarm hour, followed by the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch to change to minutes. Press the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to advance the alarm minutes.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

Regards
Shauqat

Blue vertical line


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.

Nikon Coolpix digital camera L18


The red light is probably the focusing beam. I'd guess that your flash is turned off somewhere in your settings. Go through the menu and if you find that it is not turned on there might be a hardware problem. Also, if the flash is set to automatic, it will not work when it thinks there is enough light to take a good pic.
