Sounds like you may have a bad harddisk. You'll need to boot your computer froma rescue CD. To create one, follow directions at this site. http://www.help2go.com/Tutorials/Windows/Create_a_Windows_Boot_CD___Rescue_CD.html

If you aren't familiar with changing the boot sequence in BIOS to CD-rom, it's time to find a good PC support tech to help you with this. Once the computer has booted, look for you C: drive. If it doesn't show up in Explorer, chances are very good the drive is bad. Judging from the question you posed, it's most likely you're going to need help diagnosing and repairing the computer from a knowledgable support tech.

Open the PC and disconnect all the drives cables including Power.
Plug in the PC and wait for a beep. If not, removes the memories. When Then plugin again, it should beep few times. if not, most likely the MoBo is dead.

If with one memory beep once, try with the other memory if you have more than one. Then, try this connecting one drive at a time.

Hit start Alienware computer goest to alien head on screen then straight to sleep mode. Please read


When you say computer clock do you mean the LED read out on the mother board? if so the numbers you are seeing are error codes you will need the mother board manual to know what those codes mean. If you don't have the manual it's possible you can go to the mother board manufacturers web site and download one then you can look up the codes to see what the problems are. Hope this helps

Sharp light turns green thern turns yellow screen goes black


it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

When the computer is turned on the monitor goes to sleep mode


Go to safe mode,select boot in vga mode.

If this allows you to start,

Click start,Run type desk.cpl
Screen Saver tab | click on Energy
Under desk or office settings frame, set all values to "never".
Then click
Advanced Options, you'll see a frame asking you what to do.
Just select the options to turn off sleep mode.
check that out.

If you can't start this way,you need to try another monitor to change the setting above.


Please rate this a fixya

Monitor stays asleep


Check in the BIOS and see what your monitor settings are.
Did you change the sleep mode or power off mode? What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.
