The CD may be turned 'off' in the BIOS listing which you can view on boot-up by usually holding down the F2 key. Sometimes BIOS setting may change for no good reason, so lookout for this and make sure your motherboard battery is providing enough power. Install a new battery if not sure.

Firstly will the CD rom open when you press the button. Is the 4 pin power cable attached to the device inside the case. Old computers have a failing CD before any other part fails usually. If the power and the cables are securely connected then maybe it is just faulty and needs replacing.

HP 381865-001


is power getting to other systems like the HDD and cd-rom. if it is then the fan bushings are worn out. it happens over time. if no power to anything then the power supply is toast and will need repaired or the easier thing to do is replace it but only if the cd-rom has no power or the HDD doesnt make any noise. I have observed when a power supply goes bad the fan will twitch just a bit and the cd-rom won't open

Acer Aspire 4736z always shutdown on start-up


Try to update your BIOS. Download it here : http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

You must need USB Flashdrive to update it. Please make sure that your USB Flashdrive is bootable. Here's the link on how to make USB Flashdrive bootable: http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/usb-drive-bootable/
After you make your USB FLashdrive bootable, copy that BIOS update folder in your USB flashdrive. Please also rename it in simple words so that you can easily access it using command prompt. And after that make your USB flashdrive as first boot priority. Then save and exit.
When the USB flashdrive is now booting.
Type this:
cd (name of the BIOS Folder)
cd DOS
FLASH
then wait it after it finish.
NOTE: Make sure you plugged in your AC adapter.

Hope it helps

How to add a new harddisk to a Gateway Peninum 3 550MHz machine and install win98?


Do you want to replaced the main HD or add a new one? If you want to replace the main one, buy a Hard drive under 160 gigs. I cant remember but 98 can not deal with a bigger one, you will have to cut it up or Partition it. Partition it down to 20 gig each. Do you have your Org. win 98 install disk? Get a setup program with the HD you buy. That program should let you Partition it and also format it to use with 98 or fat32. Once installed in the computer set the HD to master with switches located on the drive (small jumpers) As it boots up look for press DEL to enter setup. Get into the BIOS program and ck to see it it will locate your new hard drive you might have to set heads and scetors so make a note of the stamped on the drive. Once the BIOS has found the drive it is a matter of format w/ copy the command comm program from win98 you will have to have a good win 98 set up disk. Once you have formated the drive with fat32 and copied commamd.com you will need to install CD/Rom drivers you might have to find a good old win98 starup disk to boot up the cd. you might find a good old floppy with a cd intall on it at a local computer shop. if using an old win98 startup disk you can then put in the cd and at the Prompt type in cd win98 then type in  setup and that should be a good start.

Cooling fan does not come on no power to the computer


So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you are the victim of a bad BIOS flash, don't freak there are some options. First off, if the computer (or motherboard) is still under warranty the Computer (or motherboard) can be sent to the Vendor for a BIOS reprogramming.
If you are a DIY PC builder and the warranty is expired you can take out the bios chip and sent it someone who reprograms BIOS chips or you can buy a brand new chip form them. I will show you my people.

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If a POST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name to Motherboard brand name appearing on the screen.

Replace CD-ROM


Typically a laptops CD rom is removed one of two ways.

1. there is a screw holding it in on the bottom that needs to be removed so you can just slide it out or it has a spring loaded lock that you push in and pull out. Or a combination of the two.


2. Because its a notebook and not really a laptop, it maybe entireley internal, in which case you would have to take the unit apart to remove the drive. Check the user manual for tips, it may be simple, also, you can probably go online and find a repair manual at there website and use that as a guide.

Try these and let me know.
Good luck

I can't instal windows 95


IIRC the very early Windows 95 installation required CD-ROM drivers prior to Win95 set up, this was achieved using the supplied diskette.

The work-around for this issue is to do the initial install on a different system and transfer the HDD to your 486 system, this must be done BEFORE windows configures the driver set OR setting the drivers to MS default is required following completion of setup (on surrogate system).
