Re: nothing but a fan and a flashing light

Try going back to the previous memory configuration, see if the unit comes up normaly. if it does, there is something wrong with the new memory configuration (defective memory module, incompatable memory type, etc)

Flashing lights in the front of ibisurfer

vid shows nothing leds are to tell u something not just diagnostic ie most pcs / laptops have a light that flashes a lot telling u when its comunicating with the hard disc drive thats perfectly fine does the system run ? whats happening ? is it just the led worrying you with no obvious symptums we need info to help whats wrong what is it

ie make acer
model aspire 1283
seriels etc every bit of writeing on it

that tells us what were dealing with

then we need the most informitive description of the problem ie

system boots to bios but when you try to load windows it says (xxxxxx) there is a led on the front that used to show green but now just stays red

that tells us a heck of a lot more then you would think

once we know exactly what were fixing and exactly what its doing that it shouldnt be doing then we can help

Model Asus Eee 900A I tried to update bios and all of a sudden everything went off now no power at all, buttery is in good condition power charger is in good condition tried them on an other Eee and found...

I'm sorry but looks like the BIOS maybe damaged - you'll have to get the BIOS fixed or replaced (on the motherboard) unless it has a socket. If anything happened during the upgrade process like a power interruption, it could cause the problem. The BIOS upgrade process does an erase/write flash of firmware to its' memory. If disrupted, the firmware codes become corrupted.

Switch on and the caps lock and scroll lock lights flash, but nothing else happens

Your memory chips are loose. remove and reinsert them. That flashing is an error code, indicating no memory. unless someone stole your chips from you, they are merely loose.

Laptop won't boot after new hdd and memory upgrade

Re-seat the memory and the HDD connector. If no change try the mem modules one by one. If no change try it without the HDD connected to see if there is a problem with the new HDD.

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display

You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?

Acer 3680-2633 won't boot with new ram install

Dont be hasty! First of all, not all ram and motherboard are created alike.
1. go to the specifications of the RAM and find out what voltage its expecting from the motherboard. this may require just looking at your receipt or going the the manufacturers website and looking at the specs or calling them.
2. check your motherboard manual or access it from the manufacturers site and check the highest voltage that it will supply to the RAM.
if the RAM Needs more voltage than your motherboard supplies, it will cause the symptoms your describing. In this case you will need to find some PC4200 ram that runs at your motherboards voltage.
I have ordered many barebone computers that were shipped with upgraded memory that wouldnt work on that system, the sales people are more interested in selling than checking the specs.

I have an acer aspire 5520G and i can relate all too well. It worked fine for about 3weeks (from brand new!!) then one day the screen went blank while trying to boot. I managed to fix it and it worked fine for almost 2years, untill i went to sell it and encoutered the problem again.

The Fix: this is the fix that worked for me; firstly the problem; this seems to be a big problem with acers for some reason, and there are a few variations or confusions about it when people describe their fault. My fault is that when my laptop is off, i press the power button and the green light comes on, a fan starts up and there is hope, but then the fan changes speed slightly and it stays like that indefinatley, without the screen having ever come on, and i mean the computer is virtually dead except the power light and fan, you cannot press ctrl-alt-del or see the screen from an angle or with a torch. the only thing you can do is hold the power button and force a shutdown, so some deep seeded hardware is still working, but it seems the display never starts and the BIOS never loads.

My first fix - i managed to start my computer by pressing the power button, then as fast as i can (hold function button) repeatadly press F5 and F6 ie. with the function button held you are pressing [Black out screen/Restore Screen] and [Switch Monitors]. this usually starts my laptop on the first or second attempt. The first time i did this i was playing around with external monitor cables and connections, and switching monitors and the problem spontaneously fixed itself as mysteriously as it had arrived.

Second time was extremely frustrating, i could still load my computer by pressing F5 and F6 combos but could not get it to become self sufficent. I upgraded my BIOS with the Flash Updater from acer (i found it on the net) and after the second boot attempt, windows vista installed some memory drivers, and the problem was resolved.

if this hadnt worked i would have tried the memory battery fix as above, as my problem definatly seemed bios related.

Hope this helps someone from loosing their hair.
