    Not exactly sure what it is you were hoping for besides exact directions. You left no comment as to what operating system you were using. Desktops by the way don't have a battery. I gave you the best answer available, and have been backed up by the next person who answered ( gave you the same fix ) let us know what it is your trying to do and maybe we can help. Giving a not appropriate and not saying why in my opinion is just rude.

Compac pasario c500 on/off light just blinks when I power on computer screen stays blank?


Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. If it reboots, open Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced power settings, Change Sleep and Hibernate to Never. Adjust the settings to your preference. Set the Screen Saver time. When your laptop is not in use shut it down and unplug, this will prolong life and a reboot everyday will reset your laptop.

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels....


Hi! Most digital cameras require outrageous amounts of power to work properly. Be sure to use only high quality, hi power ni-mh rechargeable batteries. Check for Sanyo Eneloop or Duracell. Sometimes we think the camera is broken, but in most cases is only insufficient amout of power. If you can't find the before mentioned batteries, look for 2500mA NI-MH type rechargeable batteries and a proper charger. Good luck!

CPU shutting down.


Hi MonaMona,
Replacing a CPU fan is easy, but be carefull, the CPU will have old thermal grease on it, so unlatch the CPU at the same time you take the fan off. Because the CPU will come up with the fan, so unlatch the CPU pins, to release the CPU pins, when taking the fan off. And when putting the new fan on the CPU, & the fan nust be smaller then 80mm, the sell just CPU fans. Make sure you put on thermal grease on the CPU, so it won't over heat & will protect your CPU, also don't cake on the grease. Put on a small amout & spread it on the CPU thin. Let me know if that does it for you.

Good Luck with it.
