I try to turn my computer on but no luck, the little green light in the back is on, does that mean anything?


The green light indicates that the power supply is standby, if you press power botton and PC doesn't turn on, the simplest failure could be a defective power botton, also at the worst case you could have a defective power supply or motherboard.

My laptop fell down and now my screen does not display anything


try to press and hold Fn and F8 - this is to toggle screen setting to ext and back to LCD on laptop. if nothing happens turn off computer by pressing power button, unplug the ac adapter, remove the battery. remvoe residual electricity from computer by pressing power button 10 times. just plug again the ac and leave the battery out. Pres and hold the letter D and while holding that press the power button once and release both of them. it will perform the built in self test on the lcd. if nothing happens, turn off computer. press anf hold Fn and while holding it press power button. it will perform diagnosis on computer. if still nothing happens need to repalce motherboard and LCD.

My computer wont turn on


take out the psu completely from the cpu/tower, plug in the power cord,if there is a switch on the psu turn it on, next locate the main power connector (24pin) and find green wire,take a piece of wire and insert it into the green wire connector,next touch the other end of the wire to the psu outer case or a black wire on the main connector,if all is well the psu will turn on,if you have a dc voltage tester check the voltages on the red and black wires on molex connector...5vdc,yellow and black...12vdc.if ok look at the main board and inspect the capacitors to see if they are swollen, if ok
replace psu and disconnect hdd,cd/dvd,floppy ect from main board only leave memory,processor and video, power on if ok shut off and reconnect hdd, power on, if ok shutoff and connect floppy, if ok power off and connect cd/dvd drive.during this testing you will know what is bad.let me know how it turns out.email; arjoon.ken@gmail.com

The Fn botton on my vio lap top won't work


The Fn button is like a 'shift' key. Just as you would press <Shift> and a letter to get a capitalized letter, you press <Fn> and a function key at the same time ( <Fn><F1> or <Fn><F2> and so on) to use the secondary function for that key. For example, on one of my laptops, the <F2> key has an icon for 'wireless' (looks like an antenna). If I simply press <F2>, I will activate the function for <F2>, but if I press <Fn> and <F2> at the same time, I will turn on my wiress adapter.

<Fn> all by itself does nothing.

Hope this helps.
