    Graphics adapter may be set to a resolution/refresh rate not supported by the monitor, can you see anything on the screen when you first turn the computer on? Graphics card could be bad as well.

Sounds like the graphics / graphics card is gone. Is it onboard ? or is it seperate (usually onboard are vertical near the ethernet port and a seperate Graphics card would be vertical below all usual connections)... i think either one, getting a graphics card and checking is best solution - depending on model newer PCI xpress or older AGP.... the more i know about the computer the more I can try help.

If there is noise "beep" then it has RAM issue/RAM port. If is not noising then it has motherboard issue. I guess you need to take it to the technician and ask him to fix or replace it.

Screen not working

Does it seem like the laptop booted up all the way except the screen is black? Do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning? If so try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Hard drive not being found

1 . Shut down the computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices.

2 . Remove the computer's side panel. (Cases vary. Some will require a small Phillips screwdriver for removal and others feature screw less designs. Please see your case manual if you are unsure.)

3 . Locate the newly installed hard drive. Check that two cables are running from the hard drive to the motherboard and to the power supply. If you see only one cable or if either of the cables are not securely seated, plug in the appropriate connector(s).

4 .
Leave the case's side panel off for now. Reconnect the power cable, monitor cable, and keyboard and mouse connections.

5 . Restart the computer. Enter your BIOS immediately. (Your BIOS usually alerts you to the key required to adjust settings. If your screen does not show this information or if you are unsure, consult your motherboard manual.)

6 . If it is an IDE hard drive, enter the IDE settings. The BIOS should show the hard drive. Configure it as primary or secondary, according to your computer's configuration. (If you have only one drive, set this to primary. Otherwise, set as secondary.)

7 . Save your settings, and exit the BIOS. Once you are certain that the the PC is recognizing the hard drive, replace the side panel.

Our home computer recently stopped working. When turned on, the on light doesn't light up and the computer doesn't start, but the fan/motor runs. Is there any way to fix this? And if so, how? Thanks in...

Do you at least get a black and white message with start windows normally hilighted.Did you get lightning in the area?We had an emachine and it basically quit on us one day,kind of sounds like what you have.If you are sure the monitor is fine and you do not get anything to come up,your hard drive is likely fried.You can just replace the hard drive too.If you do get a screen with a C: showing you can try some basic commands such as when the C: is showing,type next to it,it's either ip config or mp config(I forget which)but one of them will get some stuff going on at least and would be a good sign.
Like I said,if you can't get either of the first 2 to show up (run windows normally or a C:)sorry to say but it's time to shop for a computer.If you decide to throw out the old one,I would take off the side,remove the hard drive and smash it with a hammer.It is pretty easy to do but if you are unsure about which piece is the hard drive,call a couple shops,someone is always willing to give free help for easy things to attract business.Also,keep the rest of the components(keyboard,mouse,monitor).They are good for backup if anything ever happens.If you do not have an optical mouse,buy one if it is not with the new one.Personally,I will never buy an emachine again.Norton antivirus seems better than Mcafee.Internet providers usually have their own available and is just as good.Good luck! Greg If you do buy a new one and have questions,feel free to contact me for anything.

I require instruction on the use of my portable hard drive.

its very easy. just connect to your computer usb port. If your drive requires power put the power adapter. Before connect to frontpanel USB of your system. Once check your front panel usb is working or not. Check with some other memory stick or mouse etc.. Because if your front panel usb connect reverse there is chance to lose your hard drive..

Possible hard drive failure

Does the splash screen come up? Most of the time if it is your hard drive the ACER splash screen will come up and then a Hard disk 0 error after that. If nothing appears on the screen then you have a bigger issue.

Is there any noise at all (Fan, hard drive spinning)? If so try hooking it to a external monitor to see if there is any movement. You might have a problem with your LCD.

Fuji plus monitor


Try your Fujiplus monitor on another pc see if it still have the same problems. If not, then your Macbook it the caused. You say, you replaced a new hard drive? Did you formatted and reinstalled the Mac software? If not, of course you will got a blue light...cuz the new drive had nothing in it.
Good lucks!
