This could be a bad AC chord that you may have to replace. You may not have a fuse but if you have an ac chord with a large box on it check that your connections are good and that the light on the box(halfway between the plug and the computer power input) is on or the box is at least getting warm.

Oil light came on car lost power shut off and wont start what should i do


If the engine ran out of oil, then there's some serious damage done. If there was plenty of oil, then the oil pump shaft may have snapped or failed internally. Have a mechanic inspect the cause since he will have the necessary tools and equipment to do the job safely.

Control button locked. when I turn ooff PC the sleep light will not turn off.


Typically, the computer is defaulted to stay turned off after an electrical outage. To start the computer from scratch again, hold the power button in for several seconds. If it powers off, wait a minute, then hold the button in again to start it. When the screen comes up that says it didn't shut down properly, choose Safe Mode without networking. It will look like it is hanging on several files, normal, let it go. The screen & icons will be large because it is in default VGA mode. Once it stops loading, go to the Start Button & choose Restart. Things will return to your chosen default settings and most things will work again providing you have an EMI/RFI Surge Protector power strip that everything was plugged into. I have had several fail after a power surge, they are supposed to. Some have insurance should you have electrical damage after a power surge that got beyond the strip. Ultimately, $15-$50 is cheaper than your PC &/or monitors damaged by not having one, they are designed to be the Sacrificial Lamb & be the cheap breaking point.

As an added note, people confuse Sleep Mode with Hibernate Mode. Sleep mode means anything you are working on gets suspended into your available memory while it goes into Power Saving mode. On a power loss, all will be lost, save regularly if you use this mode.

Hibernate uses a space on your hard drive to write the information. Power loss, nothing is lost and on waking up or powering back on, your data will still be where you left off, usually intact. To restore from either mode without electrical loss, hit the ESC key. Exceptions will occur if you use Hibernate mode but only have a power strip for your multiple plugs. A power surge can still damage your computer because it wasn't blocked by the EMI/RFI power strip.

How do you know which one you have ? If you only have an On/Off power switch, you have an unprotected power strip. If you have a button on the side of that switch, known as a Reset Switch, you have a protecting one. Even if the Reset Button doesn't restore the power strip, it gave it's blife to protect your computer equipment. Cheap insurance.

Good luck.

Loss of power


Loss of power after running for a while can be caused by anything from a partially clogged catalytic converter to engine overheating due to a faulty engine cooling system. Lots of other things can cause it as well.

The computer keep shutting down.... i had taken down and he feel the mother board or something had been shorten circut.. i had it for 3 years... other than that seem that everything is fine but shut down...


If there was a short circuit it wouldn't power on period. If it shuts down completely and not rebooting your most likely teleconferencing one of the following
  • Power supply is crapping out (less likely)
  • Your computer is overheating (Most likely)
If it is rebooting then your most likely experiencing a software crash perhaps due to a failing hardrive or just general operating system corruption.
If your computer stays up for more than a few minutes try downloading speedfan (click the words "Speedfan 4.4" not the giant button (thats an ad) http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php Run it and it will display your core and CPU temps anything over 60-65 is pretty **** high, shutdowns will usually occur higher than 75 C though. If you know how to enter BIOS (usually F10) while the system is first booting up, some BIOS will allow you to set a shutoff threshold.
After thought... failing CPU fans can also cause a computer to shutdown.
Comment back with your finding or if you need further help.

Sudden Shutdown of the unit, I Cannot use my FP72E BenQ LCD monitor Properly because at the middle of using it, it suddenly shutdown, open, shutdown again, open again. is this unit is capable for long...


For the monitor that is more than 2 years old, first place to look will be the power supply, look for bad caps with bulging top first, post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps; http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

It just stopped working. Push the power on, no light and display doesn't come on. Took apart and checked the fuse. Fuse ok.


No caps with bulging tops? Listen real close to the power supply section for fainted clicking sound, if you do hear that, then the power supply is in shutdown/restarting mode either due to bad caps or short circuits in the inverter section. Post picture will help, see eaxmple of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My acer monitor shutdown after 1min on


Look inside to see if it has any bad caps in the power supply, also look for 5v and 12v in the power supply, 90% of failed monitors are due to bad caps, see examples here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I often have to unplug my router and re plug in order to connect to the interenet. This has just recently started. What is going on?


Many things could be causing this ..

1. Defective Router
2. Defective Power Supply.
3. Router Thermal Shutdown due to Over Heat.
4. Plain ole user error.
5. Computer error

Routers are offten subject to these issues.

Computer error is what I suspect is happening to you.

1. Download ALL of the windows critical updates and service packs
2. keep your computer and the router cooled off , keep the room temperature down to 75F
3. Check everything to see if things are getting too hot. if anything is getting too hot to touch it's too hot normaly computer components should not exceed 145F sometimes more than 100F will cause
things to start shutting down.

Heat and DUST are the enemy.

4. make sure your computer is clean.


5. Once you've gotten all that straight , it's time to start digging


The very first thing to do is call your ISP to make 50000% certan that you have configured
your router and your computer exactly as they specify.

a router configured incorreclty can cause a loss of connection.



Thank you for using FixYa!
