Hi ,

Turn the computer off completely ,disconnect any external devices connected to the computer along with the cable for the internet .Then press and hold the power button on the front panel of the computer tower and then hold it for atleast 30 seconds.Turn the computer on and check what happens.
Turn the computer off and then as soon as you turn the computer on tap the f8 key repeatedly until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu options ,select the option that says safe mode and hit the enter key .Select the operating system if you have xp or else you need to wait for the page wherein you can put in the password.If it is sucesful then it will take you to the desktop so you need to restore the computer to an earlier time when the computer was working fine.Click on start?all programs ?accessories?system tools and then system restore .(in case of vista simply type system restore in the search bar and hit enter). Once the resotre page opens up select restore my computer to an earlier time and click next.You will get a calander whic has different dates so select a date when you think that the computer was working fine.The date that you select should be in bold.Click on nest next to exit from the wizard and then the computer will restore and then will restart which wil take you to the normal mode.If the restore is succesful then it will take you to the desktop .
If safe mode does not work try with last known good configuration which takes the computer to the date when the computer was working fine.If non of the options work then you can go to the recovery page to do this instead of the f8 key tap the f11 key until you get the system recovery page then click on next to get to a page that says advance option ,need to click on that and then select system restore .This is for xp in vista its the same key (f11) but you get a recovery manager page then you will have to select advance option then system restore .
If these options does not work then recovery needs to be done wherein the computer needs to be formated.

all the best

How do I get picture back on TV which was working the night before, which is hooked up to HD cable box, thru HDMI?


OS info is always helpful, if say you are running some type of nix, it's likely not getting recognized by xserver or if your running some version of windows your display manager has shut it down because of a resolution mismatch.

Acer aspire one will not work.


Hi,

If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.

This started last night, my battery indicator


The red or amber flashing lights indicate a bad battery. The Dell battery warranty is only for one year and the D600 has been out for a number of years. You should replace the battery. You can use the laptop as it is as long as it is connected to AC power.

There are several places to buy replacement batteries. One is www.bixcomputers.com. If you do a search on the web you should be able to find other sources.

Good luck and I hope this helps, even if it isn't good news.

Iphone wont turn on


To fix this, you need to hook it up to your computer, run itunes, and let itunes recognize it. Itunes will notice it's not working right (you may need to play with it a bit to get to this point, otherwise just choose restore). When it's all connected, use iTunes to restore your phone to factory and try the jailbreaking all over again.

Good luck, let me know how that goes.
