First Power Saver Came Up & Now Fans Aren't Working

About a month ago the power saver would shut off the computer. I cleaned vents and worked good until now, it just shut off. I removed cover and cleaned the dust but now I noticed the fans aren't working. It does power up. I have an emachine T2484 and it's about 4 years old. It's a business computer with all data on it and with the end of the year approaching, I'm desperate. Thanks for any help.

    I tried a power cord from another computer and it still didn't work even at a different location. First the green power button was blinking like it was trying to do something and now the green power button isn't coming on at all. I noticed there is a lithium battery in it, can this be the cause? Thanks for any info.

    I have an emachine T2484 that will not power on. I replaced the power supply hoping that would fix it, no luck. I unhooked the power switch from the motherboard and linked the two pins on the motherboard briefly together with a screwdriver to see if my switch was bad, it did not start. I replaced the motherboard, no luck. I double checked the power supply on another system and it works fine. I replaced the power cord, no luck. Now I am clueless as to what to do next. Any suggestions?

It is very possible that the power supply has gone out. If you hear the drives spinning up then its not. check the power supply thats what I'd do first

My Laser 30 went into power saver mode by itself and now I can't get it out of said mode, otherwise it's working well.


Rick,
Sorry to hear you're having issues with your Toyo, first off do you have a manual for your stove? If not, you can download one online, I've included the link for your convenience.

Your Toyo has a series of control buttons across the top and/or the front, the "On/Off" button for the "Power Saver Mode" is located in the middle. You can turn the mode On or Off, though you actually WANT to utilize the Power Saver Mode. It's intended to prevent unnecessary ignitions on the stove, thereby lowering your electrical consumption as well as wear & tear on the stove. All you need to do is set a maximum and a minimum temperature and whenever the temperature is not within the parameters you've established the stove will then either ignite to heat the area to your pre--determined setting or shut off until the temperature is within the parameters you've established. If there is NO error code(s) showing, and the stove is running fine, then I would not be concerned. Though I do suggest you immediately download the manual, read it thoroughly, and when necessary use it to troubleshoot future issues.
I hope this helps you, good luck and stay warm!

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can


I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

Primer;
The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
OR,
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Please post back in a Comment.

Athlon 64 X2 5200+, 2.6 GHz desktop only runs on power saver setting


Hello there!
Perhaps it is time to change or recalibrate your battery, some of these particular issues, came from a old or faulty battery. other that that, its a motherboard capacitor blown issue, it can hold electricity, but the capacity to do it came to and end.

Why does my computer's screen turn black and stop working while im using it?


It's most likely a heat related issue. Laptops need to have the fans and air vents blown out regularly. Also, they need GOOD airflow. An under computer cooling fan will add a lot of airflow. You can get them for $15 & up.

My Dell Optiplex GX270 goes into power saver mode


this sounds like a bad power supply unit. First check that your Ram and graphics card a free from dust and dirt by removing them from their slots and cleaning them with a dry soft paintbrush then replacing them gently but firmly. Next check that all of the power cables going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. If this is done and you still get the same problem, then I suggest changing the power supply unit.

Blinking AC light with/without battery, computer shuts down


I want to try a very simple thing, cause it happened to me, while I am working on my computer , it shut down unexpectedly... cause the processor is working with its full performance and no enough cooling around the laptop. so while I move to other place and also I raise the laptop a little bit from the back to let the fans (bottom of the laptop) works perfectly .
try to open it again and do so.... may be it is a so simple thing that was far from your mind like I was before... good luck
