Power up problem

IWILL ZMAX-AP, usb ports at the front light up on connecting power, press the start button, there is a brief flicker of life then nothing, hold the start button in and the brief flicker of life just repeats. Removed everything (apart from CPU) does this mean the motherboard has a fault?

On my IBM t21 laptop when I press the power button the hdd light flashes ones and then it just gose off Help me pls

This usually means thehard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controlleris faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Computer monitor is dark -- no desktop

Try to connect your computer to another monitor and reinstall your graphics card. In parallel, try to connect your monitor to another computer and check if it is working properly.
You'll know for sure who the culprit is.

My system fan speed reads 0 rpm and the computer powers down

Check to see if your fan is plugged in correctly.
If it is and still doesn't work, try plugging the fan into another fan port.
If it still doesn't work, your fan is probably busted.

Crashes when plugging external 2.5" hard drive into front usb port

It is possible that your hdd needs more power than the front usb ports provide. On some the front usb ports draw less power than those built directly on the back of the motherboard. Try plugging your hdd into a back usb port and I'd almost bet the problem disappears. I know this sounds weird but the same happened to me with a different device. All the research pointed to the back ports having the most stable power. Hope this helps.

My asus d1500t wont startup

Most likelly your motherboard went bad, but you can try somthing else before replacing your MB.
1. Remove your battery and try to power up. Your battery might be shorted.
2. Remove your hard drive and try to power up.
3. Remove your CDROM and try to power up.

Good luck.

Hi i've got a plustek 7200 scanner and its causing a usb power overload on my p.c. can i repair it ?

USB ports operate in pairs from a usb host controller. Normally these pairs of ports are side by side (ie parallel to one another along their longest side) each pair of ports can onlhy be supplied with a limited amount of current.

You can try either plugging the scanner into a port that has nothing in its adjacent pair OR

You can buy a powered USB hub that will be able to sustain the current required for your scanner
