One long, two short is the POST beep code that indicates something is wrong with your display adapter (e.g. your video card).

Make sure your video card is plugged into your computer firmly. If it is an onboard card, you may need to get an external video card and plug that in to test if that is your problem.

Blank screen on dell latitude 6400.worked last nite


Try remove the battery and power cord. Then press the power button and hold it down for 10-15 seconds. put everything back in and push power button once. See if this helps it come back on. If not, you may have a bad monitor, backlight, or video output from the motherboard. Hooking the laptop up to an external monitor will help isolate that problem as to what exactly is causing the problem. I hope this helps! :-)

Its dell latitutde 6400 workrd last nite but cant get the screen


Debby, here is what you do; remove the battery. Next unplug the charger from the laptop. (Please make sure it is turned OFF FIRST)

Next, hold down the POWER BUTTON ON THE DELL LAPTOP for at least 30 seconds NON-STOP!!! After 30 seconds, let go of the button. Now, insert the charger ONLY and NOT the battery. If the Dell Logo comes on, problem SOLVED!!!! If not, repeat again.

Hi,\r\ni have a problem with my macbook air when


Try restarting your computer while holding down the X key. This may force the computer to start up using your Mac OS X system. If it does, release the X key, then open System Preferences and click Startup Disk. Make sure your Mac OS X system is selected. If you are unable to start up using the X key, restart your computer and immediately press and hold the Option key. Release the Option key when icons start to appear in the center of the screen. Select the Mac OS X system disk, then click the forward arrow to continue starting up.
If the above attempts to reselect your Mac OS X startup volume are unsuccessful, try resetting PRAM. Shut down your computer, then turn on the computer and immediately press and hold Command-Option-P-R until you hear the startup sound for the second time. Open System Preferences, click Startup Disk, and select your Mac OS X volume.
Hope this helps. If none of these options fix your problem, bring your computer to an Apple store, they are always very helpful and almost never fail to fix the problem!

How does this thing work?


Install the software on your computer. Put a battery in the camera. Push and hold the button to turn it on (display shows 00) Take some pictures - the camera makes a tiny beep, the led on the front flashes, and the count goes up by one. Push and hold delete to remove the last picture (count goes down) hold longer to delete them all (goes to 00). When you've collected some pictures, rush to your computer to download them with the USB cable before the battery runs out; when that happens the pictures are all gone (there's no flash memory in this). Holds about 40 pictures depending on the amount of detail in them.

The playstation is comin on but i cant gat a picture on the tv why tried on different tv worked fine last nite


Ok, follow these simple steps and your PS3 should display properly on the TV.

Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button
Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart.

This resets your video resolution back to standard definition. You should now be able to setup your video settings correctly using the PS3.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Turn off the switch at the back of your ps3.
Turn it back on.
hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until the ps3 will turn on and then off automatically.
let go and then press and hold the power button again. it will beep once, then twice. Once it beeps twice let the button go.
ps3 will show a new menu. Choose option 3 to restore file system. Your ps3 might do the restore twice in a row and then it will work. None of your files will be deleted.

This is a very broad question so I'll cover as many answers as I can think of: 1) Force quit frozen applications (Apple-Option + Escape) 2) Force shut down (hold power button for 5 seconds until it turns off) 3) Force restart (Apple-Option + Power Button)
