WHY IS THE GREEEN POWER BUTTON FLASHING ON MY MONITER AND THE SCREEN THEN GOWS BLACK


When the power light is flashing the monitor is not getting a stable signal. This is hard to answer without direct troubleshooting. Check the cables first, make sure they are connected securely. If you still have problems test another monitor you know works or move monitor to a computer you know works, this will determine if the monitor is the problem or not and tell you if it is your "graphics port or adapter". If another monitor works fine, use the working cables to test the "broken" monitor. If you have an "all-in-one" computer, ignore the above steps and use a start-up repair disk. The reason this is hard to troubleshoot is there are so many things to diagnose. More than likely your "graphics card" is failing. These are some tricks to repair. You can update the driver, buy a graphic card separate from the stock port.

How can I tell if a power surge hit my laptop and ruined it? I can't even get it to boot up


It could either be that the motherboard is fried or the Hard drive has just gotten slightly corrupted. If you have the Windows install disk that came with it you could boot that up and then go into repair mode (press R) and then run "chkdsk /r" this would fix a hard drive issue. However if your laptop will not turn on at all when you press the power button then it is likely dead.

My motherboard(ga-6cxc rev 2.0 motherboard) don't show any sign of booting but if i let some part lose it beeps(long) what should I do? even the keyboard don't light up(num lock...) and monitor...


Unplug all of your RAM, expansion cards and IDE/SATA devices. Leave only the processor and the CPU/heatsink plugged in, now try turning it on. If it boots, you should get a ram error, which is normal. If it doesn't boot, either the board, processor, or power supply is bad. Next, reinstall the RAM and start it up again. If it boots again, keep adding parts until you find the one that is causing the problem.

Hope this helps.

My desktop suddenly suspended, switched it off by pressing the power button. Now it does not boot, the screen stays dark, though power lights on the PC and keyboard are on. What should I do?


You are the owner of a desktop PC that has developed a sudden and catastrophic hardware
fault - probably on the motherboard (since even the ROM BIOS doesn't give evidence of its
existence), but possibly in the power supply.

Desktop PC power supplies are (relatively) easily replaceable, so if you have as many spare
power supplies lying around as I do, try replacing that first - if that doesn't fix the system, then
the problem is on the motherboard.

Since your power supply is alive enough to light the power LEDs on the system unit tower and
also the keyboard, the problem is probably on the motherboard - look at it - there may be an obviously burned visible component - but there usually is no visible sign of the fatal failure.

The reason I do not suspect your HDD (hard disk drive) has crashed is that ROM BIOS
executes at (power start) boot time right out of motherboard-mounted ROM, independent of
whether or not the HDD is functional - and since not even the BIOS message appears on your monitor, I therefore know that the boot sequence has been interrupted long before the computer becomes intelligent enough to find and access a disk drive, and then command it to try to find a
boot sector.

How to fix the computer: isolate the boot problem to the motherboard. Replace motherboard.

Tells me I'm in a power saver mode. Screen is blank. Model is 2241V


That message comes up when the monitor doesn't get a signal from computer, and enters power save mode until computer comes on. This usually means that the computer's not starting up when you turn the power on. It may also mean that some problem has occurred with the computer's video circuitry.

Begin by checking that the computer is actually starting up properly. Look for the normal startup signs (lights on the computer showing power and disk access, fans running, sounds through the speakers). If you're sure that the computer is working and getting into Windows, try another monitor. This will tell you if the monitor is bad or if there's a video issue with the computer.

When windows starts after some time mouse and keyboard held and moniter shows blue screen giving message problem with HD.and computer become off and when i on it it give message media test failure


Sounds like Hard Drive is failing. You will need to replace the drive. If you haven't done so already, back Up any data you want to keep by moving it to CD, another drive or a second PC.

Hard Drive failiures are pretty terminal so you need to back up urgently or you may lose all your data. If you are in UK, PC World have a disk recovery service for about £95. Elsewhere try a computer store.

Again.... concentrate on getting your data off the current drive. Worry about rebuilding Operating System later.

MY HARD DISK DOESNT WORK PROPERLY


This may be useful to you:
It is never a good sign when hard disks start to make notice. It means that your drive is starting to fail. Although there are variations, most drives are completely silent when they're running.
The tipoff is either a new noise are an intermittent noise. If the drive has always made a slight clicking noise when accessing data, that's probably nothing to worry about. If it just started clicking, or if it only clicks occasionally, this means something has changed. Change in a hard drive is a Bad Thing.
Grinding or squealing noise is definitely a bad sign and usually means the drive is on its last legs.
There are two ways to protect yourself against a failing drive; the first is to create a backup image of the disk and the other is to move all everything from the failing disk to a replacement drive. Also, make sure you have an up-to-date rescue disk so you can boot your computer even with a failed primary hard drive (the one with the operating system on it).
Creating an image won't stop the disk from failing, but it will give you a starting point from a known, good configuration if the disk fails. Cloning the disk to a new drive not only moves everything off the damaged drive, but it moves it in total so that you can start working on the new drive immediately.
If you suspect a drive is going flaky, it is relatively easy to cone your disk. Please see Drive to drive: Bring in the Clones for step-by-stepinstructions on duplicating your disk.
Using your image file, you can also deploy a new drive by restoring that image onto the new drive. Acronis True Image provides necessary tools to create and deploy a new drive.
The good news about discovering a potential hard drive failure today is that hard drives are inexpensive these days and installing a new one is easy. Many retailers and web sites sell high-capacity hard drives, up to 200 Gb, for $100 or less. If your drive shows signs of failing, replace it immediately, your data is far more important than the price of the disk drive.

Installation


do you have any operating system disks or restore disks, if so re-install with the restore disks and it will be just as it would have been, what operating system are you using, probably windows xp or vista, but most likely solution is to re install the OS, or try exploring any other options given by the error dialog.
