My low fuel light doesn't beep anymore but it does show up on the computer I just can't hear it anymore

Hi Jeanette Padilla, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Is this a laptop, and do you mean a low battery. Is this a windows machine? most likely you can go to some sort of control panel and edit the sounds and set a low battery alarm

My DELL XPS dimension Gen 4 wont boot up. The amber light is steady and no diagnostic lights are lit on the back. The processor fan is going at maximum speed. Before this problem I could not plug in a...

The indications are of a NO POST. This can be caused by:
  1. Failed motherboard
  2. Failed Front IO Panel
  3. Damaged IO Panel Cable
If issues connecting USB connections occurred via the front connection, I'd suspect the IO panel as the issue. If the IO panel doesn't resolve, then motherboard is likely failure point.

How to hook up the face plate of a emachine w3400 Wich includes 3 wires 1 power butten and 2 led lights

Look at the pinout of the Front Panel header, of the eMachine W3400's motherboard.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to,
is the Front Panel header.

The motherboard for an eMachines W3400 desktop computer is an MSI ms-7145
(Micro Star International)

Orient the motherboard in your view so that we are both looking at it the same way.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots (3) to the Bottom.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
(Junction Front Panel 1)

JFP1 is on the Bottom Right corner. There are two columns of pins arranged vertically.
(The JFP1 header runs parallel to the Right side of the motherboard)

The Left side column of the JFP1 header is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered;
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right side column is numbered Even.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered:
2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO Pin 10

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (HDD)
If the LED light is dim will operating switch the wires around

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Reset button)
> IF Used

C) Pin 9 is Not used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light (If dim switch the wires around)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

Trace the wires back to the Power On switch. Even if it means temporarily removing part of the Front Panel to see.

Same with the LED lights.
See which wires go to the Power On LED, and HDD Activity LED. (Harddrive Activity LED)

Follow the 3 wires, and tell me where they go to on the Front Panel.
USB port?
Memory Card Reader?
Firewire port? (a1394)

Bought an optical mouse today when i turn off the computer it still stays lite. how do i fix this.item #81250NS

The model of mouse (SAKAR 81250NS) you have has fancy external lighting, but should get its power from the computer's PS2 port , so unless the mouse has its own internal battery for keeping itself lit up, your computer is not actually turning off, but perhaps just going into power save mode. I am not that familiar with that mouse brand, but to check if it has its own internal battery, shut down the computer all the way and then unplug the computers power cord. If the mouse still is lit up, then your computer is not the problem.

H2862 Will not power up

This is a common e-machines problem. You were right to change the power supply. Most e-machines come with dangerously (fire balls shooting out the back) low powered power supplies that can even catch on fire. Most people install their power supplies for e-machines backwards meaning they put the 20+4 pin connector in the 4 pin connector next to the processor and it fries. Others don't do anything and the computer is just fried. It's one of the reasons no one should buy an e-machine. If you want someone to fix it for you or you want a new machine and your files transferred go to and you can get PCs with XP Pro or Linux.
