If you mean COMPUTER (not hard drive), then it could be bad RAM.

If you actually mean hard drive, then WTF did you do to the thing???

I would firstly disconnect from the net and delete the temp memory .
after that run a scan on your computer as your PC is infected and even with a virus protection infection do happen .
run the scan , make sure you have an up to date virus protection .
try also to press the following keys :
control , alt and delete in that order and see the task manager appearing .
have a good look at what is running which will give you an indication to what is running program wise .
if your PC does not run at all you have a more serious problem .
you may have to make sure that all your connections are ok ,
without knowing how and what happen i can only make up that your PC has crached the only fan running is the cooling fan for your power supply .

Have an lcd hdtv that the picture froze.


Try a hard reset to this set, and check. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
If the reset do not help you, its main digital board is faulty. Check and replace it.

My comp froze and when i tried to turn it back on i got a grey screen


When this happens, it's usually about the hard drive, AND if there's also a question mark on the gray screen, it's definitely about the hard drive. I'd try installing the operating system software again. BUT before you do that, check out Mac's users support forum; I've found tons of help there, and it's fast, easy and free!

My laptop froze and when I tried to re-start it just gets to a blue screen and nothing happens. Any ideas how to sort it?


Your hard drive is probably defective. Try to reinstall OS first. If that fails, you need a new hard drive. If you want to do it yourself, the good news is, it'snot too hard to open it. Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open an Powerbook. Just open it and let it try, clean off any corrosion you can find. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair NYC.

Wont turn on


Hello, It looks like a dead hard drive... To check your hard drive and see if you can repair it yourself, reboot your computer press simultaneously the "cmd" and "s" keys at startup if you see a black screen with white text, type: fsck -f and hit enter this does a "file system check", when finnished, type "reboot" and press enter. If nothing better happens, you'll certainly have to brinng it to an Apple Authorized Center Best regards

Nothing comes up on Home Screen?


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

Playstaion at home dowload froze PS3 wont boot up


Yeah, sony is going to tell you to send it in. Little bit of advice though, I was reading somewhere to NEVER turn the machine off while a game is running in it from the back. I always go to the game menu and go to "quit game" and then from the XMB menu go to "quit game", then go to "turn off system", then turn the switch off in the back. After reading some of the "horror" stories I don't want to have to pay $$$ to get a new ps3 because of some glitch in the system. But I would if I had too because microsoft sux. I am installing linux on my ps3 right now to see how that pans out, but I think you fried it buddy

Blue Screen of Death, but not quite


hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
