A solid amber power LED on a Dell System is indicative of a no post. There are 4 diagnostics LEDs on most Dell Towers (Either on the back marked ABCD, or on the front marked 1234) they can give more details of what the POST problem is.
Troubleshooting: Disconnect all external connections to tower except power, turn it on, see if the LED indications changed. If they change, then connect disconnected items one at a time till the failed item is found. If no change, the open tower, remove all PCI expansion cards, see if system will boot. If still no change, then most likely a motherboard failure. Take RAM out, see if you get a Beep error code when powered on, if no beeps, replace motherboard. If it does beep, try RAM modules one at a time, if it boots with 1 but not the other, replace the effected module. If no boot, with either replace MB

Lag in Chefville


OMG all of you are WRONG, it is ZYNGA. NOT the dudes system (eyeroll) YES ZYNGA lags on CHEFVILLE whenever you request anything. NOT posting but, requesting. I bought my computer brand new, a samsung, from the box Windows 8 and 64 bit, and it STILL lags when sending requests through CHEFVILLE, from the minute I ran the game and it does it through the library computers, and my friends laptops. So really your "helpful advice" is a bunch of hogwash!

LG GH22NS70 Super multi DVD Rewriter just used


Power cable attached, interface cable attached, (Dta cable), and the small audio cable attached, plus computer on, and Windows loaded.

Windows XP:
1) Click on Start

2) Right-click on My Computer

3) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list

4) Left-click on the Hardware tab

5) Left-click on Device Manager

6) When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of - DVD/CD-ROM drives

7) Right-click on the name of the optical drive.

8) Left-click on Uninstall

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's okay. Click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

Wait 1 minute. Turn the computer back on.
You should get a pop-up out of the system tray, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one will follow, "Found XXXX DVD drive"

No? Doesn't work?
Try using another 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

(The IDE harddrive shown, is just an example of a device that uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. Mistakenly referred to as a 'Molex' power cable)

Make sure the interface cable (Data cable) is plugged in tightly.

Gaming problem.. the display start to lag and become freeze after 30 minutes what should i do? it's temperature problem??


Depending on the type of the game that you're playing, please make sure that your desktop/laptop computer meets the minimum or recommended system requirements for that game. Also, try to check the game's video options for possible screen resolution adjustments and other video settings like shading, shadows, light particles etc.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a a215 s7422. When playing games,the computer lags,skips, or just locks up. I've looked for upgrades,downloads,and solutions (on and off the web). Any ideas??? I've had multiple other problems, but...


there could be programs running in the background that are taking up alot memory and that would cause the laptop to lag, skip, etc while playing games.

Not sure of the OS your running but click on either the start button or the windows icon in the bottom left hand corner, and then either in the black space type in msconfig or click on run then in that box type in msconfig. Click on OK and then it will come up with a box in the middle of the screen. Click on the startup tab and every box that has a checkmark in it represents a program that is running in the background when you turn on the laptop.

For now click on the button that says disable all and reboot the laptop. Now play games and see if the lag, skipping stops. If it does then you can go back into msconfig and click on the boxes of the programs that you want have running when you bootup your computer. Maybe make sure if you have an antivirus program you want that running and anything having to do with the printer. This will free up memory and should allow your laptop to run much smoother.

My Laptop suddenly takes 15 minutes to turn on from the loading screening (where it says acer after its turned on and the blue loading bar is going) and simple tasks are now slower, such as the media...


The best thing you can do is add more RAM. As more programs and documents are loaded the more RAM it needs. However, there are also a couple of other things you can try first. This will clean up all the old /tmp files that are not needed and also fix your hard drive so all the data is together and not spread out.
click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk cleanup. Run this first to get rid of the junk files that are left on your computer by websites
After the disk cleanup go back to the same location and run Defrag.
Each time you delete a file it leaves a blank space on the hard drive. after a while it takes longer to find files. The defrag will push all the data together in a row so it is faster to find.
Hope this helps.

Laggy computer?


have you deleted history , cookies , temporary internet pages? also when is the last time you defraged the computer?
also you can try : right click on c:/ in my computer and click properties then disk clean up and it will calculate , when the next window pops up it will show you the description of files to delete and you can click on the more options tab to also remove old restore points or windows components ( not recomended )
let me know if that works or if we need to see if you have a virus that is causing problems
