This problem can be caused by 2 things:

1 - Failed or corrupt hard drive

Display shows "Booting" and the hard disk can be heard spinning up.

A faulty hard drive usually makes a regular clicking or clanging noise. In this case a replacement will be the only option.

A corrupt hard drive will spin up as normal. In this case it be recovered by copying from another hard drive, using proprietry hard drive copying software on a PC.

2 - Blown inductor on the hard drive power connection.

This is indicated by "Booting" on the display, and no hard disk noise or activity from the unit.

This is caused by one of the small black surface mount components failing on the hard drive power plug.

These can be removed and replaced by a single strand of wire (eg from mains flex) taking care not to touch the wire anywhere else on the board.

The inductors can be tested by a meter. Normally they should show continuity or zero resistance. have a small number of spare parts for the WACS700, however they are not listed on the site.

Contact them via the website with any queries.

When the unit remains at the booting menu it is normally a sign that your Hard drive has failed. The hard drive in the wacs700 seems to run extremely hot, probably due to it's encaged location and poor airflow. It is possible to replace the drive yourself but it is fiddly.

You could send the unit back under warranty or get it repaired.

I charge £50 + cost of the HDD + postage to repair the fault.
No fix = no fee but you will need to pay for return postage. I only replace faulty Hard Drives and don't carry out other fault finding repairs. HDD Choices up to 300GB.

Dell xp will not boot and has lines across the screen

I would say your Graphics Adapter is gone. Have you removed the HDD and tested it? Has it been Cleaned? Fan? vents? Heatsink? Overheating? If the graphics adapter is gone it's a death sentence in a laptop. You can try replacing the Thermal Paste and cleaning the Laptop out. But it may be to late.

I have an HP desktop computer. I got a usb power overload message and now it won't even boot up. Is there any way to fix it?

What happens when you try to boot up now?
When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

When i try to unistall a certain program or diconnect my internet stick, it comes up with a blue error screen and shuts down the computer

Try to boot your laptop in Safe Mode by tapping the F8 Key repeatedly while it's booting, Select safe mode with networking and see if the problem goes away. If it does, this indicates a software problem and not a hardware problem. The blue screen will produce a specific error code in the ending of the message. If the problem persists please post the error code in it's entirety. It will better identify the exact cause of your problem.

Canon IR6000 please wait message after switching on

When the display panel goes blank do you see at the bottom of the display show a E601-001 or numbers like that? If so you will most likely need a new hard drive for the copier. The only tricky part of that is that the hard drive needs to be Flashed for your model and if you have the copier networked, you need that software loaded as well. If you have another working IR-5000 or 6000 model, you can switch out the hard drives... Good Luck
