Sounds like you are the victim of a power surge. If you do not have a surge protected outlet strip, get one before you fix the pc (or buy a new one). If you do have a protected strip, you should know that they are only good for one hit. If ever, in the past life of a protected strip, it is tripped off, that is, you had to reset it, the strip is no longer protected. It will work for an extension cord (if it wasn't hit to bad) but it no longer protects your stuff (and any warranty for your stuff is now void).

As far as the pc goes, its probably toast. You could crack it open and look at the motherboard, inspecting it for burn marks but the damage may be hidden inside the power supply or somewhere like that. If your set on saving your pc, you may be able to pull the hard-drive, mount it to a different pc set up, and boot from it, providing the hard drive is not damaged (ask a tech friend to help you if you go this route). You may then be able to pull any files off of it you want to keep. Then throw away the old drive, it can't be trusted.

Nuvi 2555mt lost voice


First, do you hear beeps when you press a selection on the screen? If yes, then your speaker is OK and the audio circuits are OK in the unit. Make sure that you have a voice selected in the voice menu. Some units have an audio mixer screen and provide different volume settings for navigation (voice) and system (beeps). maybe the volume for the voice (navigation) is set to off. If you don't hear any beeps when you touch the screen AND you don't hear a voice, make sure that the sound isn't set to be muted. If the sound isn't muted, you may have a defective speaker.

HP Compaq nx9020 scrambles the screen on start


"scrambles"? Has the Laptop been cleaned? Fan and vents? Overheating? You may have to open the unit to clean, also replace the CPU and GPU Thermal Paste, if the Graphics Adapter hasen't been damaged by overheating that may help. It may be Done. Try booting to Safe Mode with Networking, that will apply the generic driver. Perhaps the driver is incorrect or corrupt. post results.

My insignia tv has a scrambled screen


Oh my! If it looks like a starburst or something very odd she may have damaged the front screen unit----called a display panel----if this is the case you are finished---fatal case.

If you post a good photo of it here or elsewhere where I can see it (Photobucket or Facebook with a link) I can tell if I see it if this is the case.

The screen units are extremely fragile and I have seen one destroyed by a small child gently slapping the screen......

power the unit down totally from the wall socket to allow it to reset. It may have had a processor scramble in the outage and not selecting audio inputs correctly.
