Question about Computers & Internet

Tower problems, at first I thought it was my monitor, but it is not, a friend of mine, let me try his monitor, but that did not help at all. My tower problem is this: It takes forever to get to web pages, plus my mouse is so slow. What does that mean, is it fixable by myself?

You did not state the make and model of your computer so I can only recommend generic checks. When was the last time you ran disk defragmentation? A fragmented disk will slow down system operations. What operating system are you using and are you performing regular system updates? How much memory does the computer have? Windows XP SP1 ran well on 512Mb of memory, but after upgrading to SP3, you require at least 1Gb to run with any effeciency. How big is your hard drive and how much data free space is available? If your system is low on memory and your hard drive is almost full, paging (moving data from memory to hard drive and back to memory) is impacted, and will slow down the system. What speed Internet connection do you have? Dial up is much slower than broadband or DSL. Lastly, what browser are you using and do you regularily delete the temp internet files?
All of the above items will have a direct impact on your system operations. Also, make sure you are running a good antivirus program and perform regular scans. It is possible that you have a virus that is using your machine as a "zombie" and eating up your bandwidth sending spam.

SOURCE: power on failure

If the light you say is blinking on the back panel is actually on the power supply, and it's blinking, then your power supply is dead/dying and you'll need to replace it. I just fixed one of those a few weeks ago.  They are rather cheap, as you can get them online for low prices. Try www.newegg.com.

SOURCE: Dell XPS 400 tower does not power up monitor?

The “self test” on the monitor displays when not plugged into a computer. This means that it’s working. The LED error code 2 and 4 means the video subsystem has a problem. Either your video card is bad or bad memory module. Try reseating video card and/or memory.

Got an acer aspire ax3812 tower is on but screen stays blank got any ideas


Change the internal Ram sticks. This can cause a "Hold" in the BIOS boot process, thereby stopping the machine from going to the Operating System. Hope this helps.

We have a samsung syncmaster p2050 monitor and a dell tower but the screen does not stay on to enable you do anything pls help to identify if its a monitor problem or a dell problem?


At a guess it's probably a monitor problem but the only way to be sure is to test the theory.

You need to beg, borrow or steel another monitor and connect it to your tower, if it works Ok, your monitor has the problem, if not, its your graphics card.

Or, if you can't borrow a monitor, ask if you can connect yours to a friends tower or even a laptop with a vga port on the back (blue 23 pins).

With the laptop, you should be able to switch between the laptop monitor and the ancillary monitor by pressing the "Fn" and another key (look amongst your "F" keys and your Number keys, there should be a picture of a screen). Don't forget to switch back by pressing the same keys again.

My monitor has gone to Power Save Mode


Hello,
If your monitor is going in Power save mode it can be cause by following reasons.
>Check the data cable going from monitor to your Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is connected properly.The connector will be blue or white in colour.

If still in power save mode then try to shutdown Tower and monitor,disconnect power cable from tower and monitor.Hold the power button on tower for 15 seconds.Then again try to connect monitor and check,if still nogo,and if tower has no lights then issue with motherboard or video card or power supply.If possible try connect spare known good monitor.

need to know the model # and type of computer? Remove all external devices except mouse, keyboard and monitor. If not getting any power at all, could be your power supply.
