Does this Computer have an on board Video card and you installed another card as and upgrade? If so try to get in to the BIOS and ck for a setting to disable the old on board card. You may have to open her up and look for small switchs on the Mother board to disable the old card. What is going on is you have an IRQ clash, two things trying to do the same thing at once.

Mac g5 wont start led light blinks once every 7 sec


Hold down the power button until the computer shuts off. The press the button to restart and see what happens. There are several different ways to startup. immediately upon hearing the boot tone, press and hold the shift key to boot in safemode. If this fails as well, then you will need to boot with the install CD. This is done by immediately pressing holding the C key upon powerup

MY PC Desktop won't boot up, in the back off the tower a clicking green is blinking ,and on the motherboard is also a green light blinking ; i think it is the power supply What i did before this was...


First of all this might sound silly but when you say (turn it back on disconnect my old graphics card on safe mode) did you actually pull out the graphic card from the mother board while POWER WAS ON??? if so you definitively damaged something (the mother board or the power supply) to check you could try an other power supply if it still wont work than it's the mother board, now if I've miss understood your question it sounds like a SHORT CIRCUIT somewhere on the board check for lost screws that could have fallen and running loosely on the mother board while changing your hardware...

Hope this helps!

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks


Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...

My HP Pailion Laptop just shut down (blacked out) /cannot start


Give the HP model number so I can find out what video card is installed on the motherboard. If it is the nVidia GeForce Go 7 or 8 series, look at this other responce I made to a similar boot issue.
