Sounds like a fried motherboard, this usually happens with old computers that are used alot and get overloaded, you need to get a new one, good news is that all of your data is safe, and a new motherboard will not affect it any way

Fn button for volume in Lenovo g560 don't appear mark of increase or decrease ,, as i install new version of win 7 ,, and same case in brightness

Make sure you Press and Hold the FN key then hit the key that increases or decreases the volume. If the FN key is not held down while you press the volume keys, they will do nothing. The brightness works the same way, you must Press and Hold the FN key then hit the key that controls the brightness.

What does it mean when your computer says auto adjusting in progress, and its not the screen?

its on a dell monitor right
apparently these monitors have always had this problem some have'nt some have
no-one knows why not even dell
here are one post on how to fix the problem

Hey, I found a recent posting by someone else with the same prob----their solution seems to work (so far!)
Try this: click "turn off computer" but don't turn it off....your wallpaper turns the typical "gray" color in prep to shut down---on the monitor, hit the "plus" button to execute an "auto adjust"---do this about 3 times.......
so far, it works!

hope it helps

File names and folders appear, however no files will open. nothing is being allowed to be copied or copy to it. Error 0x8007045D I/O device error

1) Download (0x8007045d) repair utility.

2) Install program and click Scan button.

3) Click the Fix Errors button when scan is completed.

4) Restart your computer.

Try that, it sounds like a registry error. If it doesn't help let me know.

    When i am coping kingston memory card slowly coping


    OK, firstly you will need to understand that there is a couple of factors which play a role in the transfer speeds to your flash drive from your computer. Firstly, does your computer support USB 1.1 or USB 2.0?

    If it only supports USB 1.1 your transfer speed will be round about 1.5 MB/s.
    Also, test your memory stick on another computer, and see if the transfer speed is still so slow.

    If it is, you can try the following steps to optimize your drive for performance.

    1. Delete all files from the drive.
    2. Go to My Computer and right-click on the flash drive, choosing Properties from the context menu.
    3. In the window that appears, click on the Hardware tab.
    4. Find the flash drive in the list of devices, click on it once and then hit the Properties button.
    5. In the new dialogue, click on the Policies tab.
    6. Select the "Optimize for performance" option if it isn't selected already and hit OK.
    7. Hit OK again to get out of the original Properties dialogue.
    8. Go to My Computer and right-click on the flash drive again, this time choosing the Format option from the context menu.
    9. In the subsequent dialogue, choose the NTFS file system from the drop-down.
    10. Select the Quick Format option.
    11. Hit OK and wait as your flash drive is formatted with the new file system.
    12. When the final dialogue appears, letting you know that the drive has been formatted, you're good to go.
    If none of the above works, your circuit of the flash drive is damaged. If still in the warranty period, you need to get it replaced.

    Kind regards

    Maxator hard drive not being recognized

    Well all good things must end and it sounds like this one has. If it doesn't connect in either computer then something inside has either been bumped loose or it's broken.

    Western digital 500gb external hard drive ticking noise- Help !!!


    I completely agree with the WD CSR that the read/write part of the hard drive has failed and the best thing to do is recover the data before the failed hard drive corrupts the data as well. This is a mechanical fault and cannot be repaired. For the best drive savers of US please visit the website for local numbers and price of recovery. Also the details of data in the drive provided needs to be provided to the drive savers.

    Thank You

    Trouble starting compaq presario F551AU

    Hey I apoligise for the late reply,

    Ok, first off when you turn off the computer without shutting down, windws does not get enough time to wirte necessary data to the disc, this does not always cause aproblem because sometimes there are unpredictable events such as power failure..

    You might need to format your hardrive to fix this problem
    To do this boot with the windows cd, it will say press any key to boot from disc. (YOU MIGHT NEED TO SET YOUR BOOT DEVICE IN THE BIOS(SETUP))

    anyway fisrt off try a fresh install, leaving your current file system intact. Id that works then you will still have all your data on your disc, If not then you need to do a complete format.. Good Luck
