Question about E-Machines T2482 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I had not used my computer in a while and I was going on a trip so I decided to unplug it. I recently needed to get back on it and it didn't turn on. I believed that the power supply went bad so I replaced it. The computer's power indicator will not turn on at all, but the hard disk drive indicator lights up an orange color. Does this mean my motherboard is dead? Since that Hard Drive light came on is there still a chance that the data survived?

How can I plan a well-organized trip to Groningen?

Groningen is a city in the northern Netherlands. Its central Grote Market square is home to the centuries-old Martinitoren clock tower. There one of the famous Gothic church with frescoes and a baroque organ. I had been planning to go to the place for very long and finally, I decided to go. So I was looking for some bus travel services, that I got Bus charter Netherlands tour services. Not only they decided a good trip but they are deciding a well-organized trip for me. My trip is awesome. So I always recommended my friends you to plan Netherlands, Groningen, Europe, Amsterdam trip with them.

Why is the finepix games s2900 camera saying I should turn off the camera and put it back on again

I recently got this camera and it did the same thing to me. I found this site and did what quido777 said to do, smacked it on my leg, didn't work. But then I decided to check the memory card and took it out and put it back in, and now its working. I'm guessing it didn't detect the memory card for whatever reason. Before all of this I called tech support and they didn't know **** and wanted me to send it in. I'm glad I decided to fix it myself before going through all of that. But one thing is fore sure, after this camera, I'm never purchasing from Fujifilm again.

Battery was dead I have charged it up even had it checked to make sure it was good. No problems there but when I put the key in to crank it nothing happen

Same problem on my 2007 3500 Sprinter. Problem was a faulty alternotor. Had to be towed and replaced. Because it is an RV I had a solar panel installed to keep the battery charged. Latest problem was replacing the EGR valve. Fuel problem was only in US . Canadian refined fuel didn't trip the computer. Every time I filled in the US on a recent cross North America trip computer.

Replace the keyboard. Something is wrong with the encoder chip inside, and new keyboards are so inexpensive there is no point trying to repair one when it goes bad.

You may have to coax it back by unplugging or even trying a different connector on the computer. It may have disabled the port due to a current spike. Using the devoce manager in the windows control panel, see if the port has been disabled. If necessary delete the device and tell it to seearch for new hardware.

Switch stuck in trip mode

The reason why the breaker stays tripped is a result of a direct short. Unplug every electrical device plugged into an outlet in both rooms and try the breaker. If it stays on, individually start plugging in each device until the breaker trips, that is the defective device. If the breaker stays tripped, start checking wall outlets for short circuits with an ohm meter. If you did not find a short, check your hard wired lamps and appliances for shorts. If you did not find any shorts the only other problem is a shorted pair of wires in the wall or ceiling. You will need to disconnect any hard wired lamps and appliances and check for shorts between individual pairs of hot (black) and neutral (white) then hot and ground. I have a short circuit finder, but you do not need one because the technology is not perfect and you may have to manually check for shorts with a meter anyway which never lies.

My Eaton 20 amp Arc fault breaker tripped during a storm this morning. I tried the usual turn it off and back on deal and its still tripped off. It has a test button, which ive tried in the off and on...

this is going to be a long process, you have a short on the line or the breaker is gone.
you need to unplug all of the appliances that are on that line. (controlled by that breaker).
turn on the breaker. plug in one appliance at a time till the breaker trip again. unplug the last appliance that you have plugged in. that will be the cause of the short.
after all appliance unplugged and still trip the breaker, then you need a new breaker.
