My computer has been working fine. I powered it on today and I had no signal on my Sceptre monitor and the tower was runnning. I unpluged all cables on the monitor for 30 sec. Plugged them back and...


shut your computer down for 1 minutes with the power unplugged, and try it again.

depending on if your savvy with computers or not depends on how indepth you want to be.
You need to determine if your video card has gone bad or not. try to remove everything attached to your motherboard, memory, hard drives, any cables, and see if your screen turns on. Take out any network cards, video cards, modems etc, that is inside your comptuer. So you need to have your motherboard, cpu and fan+ power supply connected, and try to turn it on. If the screen comes up,l something you removed is bad. If it does not, and your computer is running, bad video card.

Most computers today come with an integrated video card, meaning everything is 1 piece. You might be able to bypass your motherboards video card port, by installing a separate card. You can get these at any computer store.

Hope this helps!

How do i get the internal memory pictures onto my computer?


Simply remove the memory card from your camera before connecting the camera to your computer. The computer will then see the camera's internal memory instead of the card memory, and you can copy the pictures over.

If you have been accessing your pictures by removing the card from the camera and placing it in a card reader attached to your computer, then this won't work for pictures in the internal memory. You will need to use the other method, connecting the camera to the computer with the USB lead.

Hi i have Nikon coolpix s3000 and im not able to transfer pics to my PC. Unable to know when my camera is on after attaching USB


Try connecting the cable to the Coolpix and then turn on the camera before plugging the USB cable into the computer.
Another way to transfer photos to the computer.
Remove the memory card from the Coolpix and insert the memory card into a USB memory card reader then connect it to the USB port on the computer. The computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the folder/s and copy the photos from the memory card to the computer.

How do i upload picturs onto my computer


Your cam may have an option to connect using a cable.Most cams have a port on the camera that allows you to connect a cable and back into the usb port of the computer.And it appears on the computer as a memory device from which you can copy.In case your cam has a memory card .You can purchase a memory card reader which attaches to the usb port.The memory card can be inserted into the reader and photos copied from it.

Is there a way to transfer photos saved in internal memory to the memory card?


Hi,

Try by removing the memory stick and then attaching the camera to computer with USB cable. Switch on camera. It should open up a dialogue box in Windows XP (or similar OS). Select 'open folder to view file' or open Windows Explorer and open camera folder (probably displayed as new drive E: or like that in My Computer) . You may also check whether there is an option of selecting "camera as mass storage device" in settings menu of camera. If yes then select this before connecting. If you have no means of attaching the camera to the computer, place an empty memory stick into the camera. In review mode, a message indicates there is no data, but there is in the internal memory. While still in review mode, press the menu button and go the the "Setup" section, the last option. Now, scroll down to the "Memory Stick Tool" section. From there, highlight the "Copy" choice at the bottom, and select the OK option to proceed. You will get a message: "All data in internal memory will be copied." Press OK, and it will copy everything in the internal memory to your memory stick. Then, when you have plugged the memory stick into your computer, you will find a new folder entitled Copy. All your photos from the internal memory of the camera will be in there.

Thanks.

Try getting a video card, if not look for a new monitor.

Reason i say get a video card your motherboard is probably working to hard depending on how old your pc is. When getting the video card it takes stress off the board when monitor is plugged into video card.

I can't transfer pictures from my computer to my digital frame. When I connect my usb cable to my computer from my digital frame , the frame displays "Connected to computer. Use PC interface to copy files....


You can start copying pictures to SV811 digital picture frame if you get the message “Use PC interface to copy files.” Here are the steps:

Copy pictures, videos, and music between your frame and computer, using your computer's normal file copying tools:

1. Connect the USB cable from the frame to your computer
2. On your computer, open My Computer or Windows Explorer.

The picture frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices.

3. Navigate to the pictures you want to copy. Then drag and drop them to the new location.
4. Unplug the USB cable to view your copied pictures.

Copying pictures from EasyShare software:


1. Install EasyShare software (free download at www.kodak.com/go/sw )
2. Connect the USB cable.
3. On your computer, open EasyShare software. Select the pictures in My Collection and drag them into the Picture tray.
4. In the menu bar, select File and then Copy to the Kodak Drive letter.

The picture frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices.

5. Select the frame source to which you are copying.
6. Select Best for Digital Picture Frame to reduce the resolution of the pictures you are copying. Full resolution is unnecessary and quickly fills up the frame's memory.
7. Click Copy. Pictures are copied to your frame.
8. Unplug the USB cable and press “Home” icon to navigate to your copied pictures.

My computer comes on but my screen is blank


Hi tytiyana..
i am giving my sugggestions.

Remedies. The remedies below should be performed in order. NOTE:Turn off the computer after each step. Never work inside the computer case with the power turned on.
1. Check and make sure all cables are firmly attached to the back of the computer and to all external devices. Retry.
2. Remove the case cover from the computer. Make sure all cables (hard drive, power cables, other disk cables) inside the computer are firmly attached.
Press down on all ISA and PCI cards and make sure they are firmly seated. Make sure your DRAM memory cards are firmly seated. Feel the top of the CPU and make sure it is not hot (warm is OK). Retry.
3. This step is only for newly built computers that have not successfully booted. Get out your motherboard manual, or download one from the manufacturer's site, and go over all your motherboard jumper settings.
Set the jumpers in the most conservative position. Review all your accessory wire connections (keyboard lock, hard drive access light, etc.) and make sure the connectors to the motherboard are facing the same direction. Retry.
4. Turn the computer back on with the case off. Verify that your CPU and power supply fan are running. If either one is not running you have a problem. If the power supply fan is not running replace the power supply (make sure the power connectors are correctly attached to the motherboard). Make sure the CPU fan is connected to power on the motherboard. If it is correctly connected and still doesn't run, replace it. Retry.
5. Unplug your computer. Remove all PCI and ISA cards. Reinstall the video card and disconnect the hard drive cable. Plug in the keyboard, video cable, and power cable. Restart your computer. If this worked, go to Step 6. If your DOS screen doesn't come up at this point try the following ideas.

a. Closely examine your motherboard and make sure it is not making contact with the computer case, which will short it.
b. Your video card, video cable, or monitor may be malfunctioning. Borrow a video card, cable and monitor, retry.
c. Remove and reinstall your DRAM. If your computer can not find system memory it will not POST.
d. Remove the CPU and reinstall it.
e. Follow your motherboard manual's instructions for resetting your BIOS to its default configuration.
If your computer still will not boot into a DOS screen, seek professional help.
