Question about Computers & Internet

Blank, doesn't boot, and seems to shut down in under 15 minutes.

My gateway W350A(T-Model) seems to have a booting and loading problem, when I start it up absolutely nothing happens but the light coming on. The screen is completely blank, all that is heard is the fan and by fifteen minutes of waiting the laptop would shut down. Unfortunately, I can't pay for any repairing utensils for this problem, considering I'm just a young person who's parents are in a hard spot. I am answering from a iBook G4, can anyone offer me price free supports to fix my problem? Also, prior to this, the BSOD error has occured several times, could that be the problem?

    No, after I turn it on it's just blank and nothing happens no matter what I press or do.

  • zantofire Apr 18, 2009

    So since I cant access ANYTHING is there no way of fixing it?

    there is always a way, if you cant get into the bios, then check for power when you turn the unit on.--get close--closer do you hear the fan running? are you sure the monitor is working? sometimes they just go bad without warning

My nephew's W350A had the same issue last year. It turned out that the CPU was loose in its socket and not allowing the POST cycle to run. You will need to remove the back cover and the bracket that goes across the CPU. Remove the CPU and clean the pins with a little rubbing alcohol, re-install and you should be fine. Remember to aply a little more heat-sink grease across the top of the cpu before putting the bracket back on. This will help keep it running cooler.

I bought a new laptop Acer Gateway NE56R. When i start the laptop, it is taking to some page to view the licence for Linpus. If i don't view the conditions, the laptop is shut down after 15 minutes. If...


If the unit is new under warranty return it to where you purchased it.

If not and you do not need Linpus on your unit, boot into safe mode and run a msconfig.

Put a check mark next to the application which you no longer want to load.

Restart your unit and see if you can navigate into windows.

Hope this has helped you.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Cervical Cushion- Pillows for Neck Pain Are you a very sedentary person? Do you have a classic office job and are 8 hours or more sitting in front of a computer? Then you most likely suffer from cervical pain. Cervical pain means having severe pain in the neck area because of an incorrect position of our cervix for quite some time. The cervical block or its numbness is due to the unnatural compression of the vertebrae. In this guide you will find all information about cervical pain, how to prevent them and how to cure them, but above all you will learn how to choose your cervical cushion that will help you lessen the pain or make it disappear completely. In the following table you will find some models of cervical pillows that can be found on the market, along with some of the major features that distinguish them. How to Choose a Cervical Cushion Since on the market you can find a great multitude of cervical pillow models, choose the most suitable one and certainly not a small business. First of all, choosing the most appropriate one is to understand what pathology you are suffering from. Although we often call it neck pain, cervical is not always the same in all cases. In this regard, it is understood that not everyone can use the same cushion. There are cases where the patient needs a more flexible pillow, others where there is a need for stiffer material, so before buying your new cervical cushion it would be interesting to consult your trusted physician, who can visit you and decide for you what is best suited to your pathology. Another factor could concern the price, but being in the medical field I recommend closing an eye on this item, ten euros more or less are nothing when it comes to health. Moreover, the price is directly proportional to the quality of the material used and of course there are materials that cost more than others. So as you see there are several factors to consider. Take care of all the advice you'll find on these pages and you too will be able to make the right choice. What is cervical pain and remedies? The area of ??the cervical vertebrae is that portion of our body that accuses so-called cervical pain when our neck or our head is in an incorrect position for several hours. This area is very important for our health and our well-being. In practice it connects our body and especially the spine to the head, with all the nerve endings that pass right in this particular area and very sensitive. When this area is subjected to a continuous stress, we do not only pain neck pain, but we also compromise the proper functioning of the head movement. Very often the pain becomes so strong that besides affecting the neck, it moves to the upper shoulders and joints, causing the famous head turns and also nausea. In the most severe cases a capatina is recommended by your doctor. Among the various factors that can trigger these severe pains are incorrect posture or an improper pillow. At the origin of this evil, however, there are also muscle contractions, trauma and stress. For this reason, the cervical pillow was born, which relieves the pain and allows the neck to be in the correct position. Structure, shape and material are designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the neck, sustaining it and giving it relief.
