There might be a short circuit in the AC Adapter or it the power cord. You should look in a manual (if available) and contact your provider for assistance.

1996 Ford contour engine cooling fan comes on high about a minute after starting car and wont turn off or slow down.


Well it could be a problem with the fan relay, or it could be a safety feature of the computer.
if the computer finds a problem with the cooling fan or the engine temp sensor, it will turn on the fan to try to prevent overheating. Even if the engine is cold.
If the check engine light is not staying on, I would check the fan relay for power and ground.

I have a Hp Dc5750 mall factor desktop that was working fine 2 months ago we moved and i shut down right and have not touched it for 2 months now it is making 2 short beeps and flashes a red light whe


Check the power supply connections inside the tower. The move may have dislodged one or more. You should also remove and re fit the RAM sticks - make sure the power lead is dis-connected when you do this.

Gateway dx 4320 wont turn on


It could be a few things:

a faulty power switch - you say that you've changed the PSU, but did that include the switch?

it could also be a Faulty Motherboard or CPU. If either of them are fried, you won't see anything come on either.

I'd suggest checking the switch first because that's the cheapest and easiest to replace

My computer just went belly up! It is a reconditioned IBM ThinkCenter, a little over 2 years old. It was running normally and then all hell broke lose, cooling fan went berserk sounding like a hair dryer...


Since your PC is two years old its recommended to check your computers hardware check your cooling fan
specially CPU cooling fan if that fan is broken your pc wont work and be careful turning on your PC again and again will burn the processor

My desktop will not come on it was coming on but it was loud then i turned it off and now it wont come on


The typical desktop has at least 2 fans. 1 on the processor & 1 inside the power supply.
It sounds like a cooling fan was making noise ,not cooling properly and then something heated & failed. Unplug it for a while then try it again if it works again but is quiet I would turn it off fast. That means the fan quit all together and will burn up. If it does start up again and is still noisy I still would not run it. Find out the source of the noise before it fails for good.

My acer aspire 5920-6423 wont charge or turn on. the adapter is new and the light on my laptop wont even turn on.


first, try it without the battery, on rare instances, the battery shorts out the unit, otherwise you have a bad power distribution board which most likely is part of the mainboard.

Gateway gt4010, wont power on.


The fan turning off will be the cause of the PC shutting down.
This could be caused by a faulty fan or bad connection to motherboard.
1. try reseating the fans power plug on the motherboard
2. if that doesn't help, try replacing with new fan.
3. if that doesn't work then most likely motherboard problem

Toshiba equium m40x won't power up


whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday
