When I power up all I get is a white screen


1Diagnose the problem with your computer. Watch the screen from the moment you hit the power button through the time it should take to boot into the Operating System.
Adjust the computer's contrast and brightness through their full ranges to make sure that the display settings have not been changed.
Reset the computer's LCD-External Monitor display with the LCD/External Monitor key combination and reboot the computer.
Continue to Step 2 if the screen is blank throughout the booting process.

2.Adjust the screen from its fully closed position to its fully opened position. Watch the monitor for any change from a blank screen to a display or vice-versa. If the screen flashes or cuts out, the LCD panel will need to be replaced. Skip to Step 5.

3.Skip this step if your computer does not have an external monitor output.
Connect your computer's external monitor output to a known good monitor and change the display from LCD to External Monitor (the keystroke combination is different for all notebook brands). Reboot the comptuer, if necessary.
If the computer does not display to the external monitor, the video card could be bad. Skip to Step 6.

4.Consult with a professional technician to determine the cost-effectiveness of replacing your computer's LCD if you are not knowledgeable in that area.
Purchase a compatible replacement LCD and install it yourself, or pay a professional technician to do so if you do not feel comfortable performing the repair.

5.Verify that the monitor connection cables are not loose or disconnected before attempting to replace it.
Replace the monitor yourself by removing the old monitor. Remove the hinge covers by gently prying them. Check if they are screwed to the computer before prying.
Find the monitor cable's connection to the motherboard. Turn your computer over and remove any plates that may cover the point of connection. Note the orientation of the cables before disconnecting them.
Unscrew the monitor from the hinges and gently detach it from your computer. Feed the new LCD panel's wires through the same path as the old wires, and reconnect them. Secure the new LCD's hinges and replace the hinge covers.
Power up the computer and check that it works. If it does not, recheck the wire connections.

6.Consult with a professional technician to determine the cost-effectiveness of replacing your computer's motherboard or video card if you are not knowledgeable in that area.
Purchase a compatible replacement motherboard or video card, and install yourself or pay a professional technician to do so if you do not feel comfortable performing the repair.

7.Replace the motherboard by disassembling the computer. Document every connection and be sure to retain all screws and small parts in order to reassemble the computer correctly. Reassemble the computer and power it up; check the keyboard to make sure that it has been reconnected properly.
Replace the video card by removing any covers or plates that hide the card. Remove the old card and install the new card in its place. Power up the computer to test the display.

My laptop model is hp compaq nx6120..Its showing the error as non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready...hw to recover this error?and also cant able to view the bios settings...


You may have a defective Motherboard (BIOS or CMOS chip to be specific). Normally, a non-system disk error can be attributed to a failing hard drive. But since you mentioned that you cannot access the system configuration, that means your BIOS is not able to see your bootable device anymore. You may need to have your computer serviced which means a motherboard replacement.
But before you send your computer to a service center, try to discharge flea power first. You may be surprised how many issues it can resolve. You can do this by removing the battery and the AC adapter of your computer. After doing this, hold the power button down for at least 5 seconds. Reconnect the components, and then try to turn your computer on. Hopefully this works so that you don't need to spend as much. The cost of a motherboard replacement would be more like replacing your whole system. Good Luck!!!

Power ploblem , no power up ,


Try to remove the battery and turn the computer on with only the AC adapter connected. If it works then you have to replace your battery. It it does not, then you will need to replace your laptop because you have a faulty motherboard, and replacing your motherboard would cost a lot. almost like replacing your computer already.

I have a Gateway Desktop computer, and I have had it for a couple years, and it just wouldn't turn on. So I need to know if that means that computer is dead?


Check for any lights. Usually a computer would have a flea light on the motherboard as soon as you plug it in. If it doesn't have a flea light, start with the power supply. Swap the power cord of the monitor with the power supply of your desktop. If it still would not show power, try replacing the power supply. Worse case, you may need to replace the motherboard of your computer which would cost a lot.

Screen is blank. Computer is switched on.


This is probably due to a video card failure. It could also be a ribbon that connects to the motherboard for the LCD monitor. You can remove the keyboard and find the strip that connects the lcd screen to the motherboard. Not too much info but thats a start...

The AC adapter connection is very sensitive to position. If I just plug in the adapter, the computer doesn't seem to get any power (stays on battery power.) If I move it around, most of the time I can get...


You have a very common problem where the power cord has been jerked to one side or the other previously and Cracked the power jack housing on the motherboard. There are 2 options, buy a replacement jack and have it installed, or buy a replacement motherboard and install it. Cost either way is roughly $100. It may be hard finding someone locally who can successfully solder the 7 connections on the jack/motherboard. Replacing the motherboard is about an hour job for anyone familiar with working on a portable system. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6000/en/sm/sysboard.htm#wp1000473

Wont power on


Try powering the system on with only the AC adapter, see if you get any power indications.

If you do not, then the system is not getting AC power.

See if the power adapter has an LED on it and if it is lit with the computer disconnected. If the LED doesn't come on at all, replace the adapter. IF the LED is on with the computer unplugged from it, then goes out when you plug it in, then try a new AC adapter.

If a new AC adapter doesn't resolve the problem, then you may want to look into buying a new computer as replacing the motherboard on this system may cost more than replacing the computer with a new system.
