Hold down "F2" to enter BIOS when you restart your computer. Using the arrow keys, navigate until you find your processor settings and set them all back to manufacturer's default.

How can I fix my PC, Acer with NMD processor, whenever I try to power it on it fails. I have tried to check the power supply but it seems ok.

Sometimes the on board battery that keeps the BIOS going when the computer has no power can fail. This can stop the computer from starting.
Open it up and look for the battery,get the number, get a new one (should be a couple of bucks) and then change it. Leave power on otherwise it will reset BIOS. What I mean is leave it plugged in and power on to do it even though the computer is not starting.

When I turn on the drive, the front pushbutton continually flashes red and blue, and the drive is not seen by the computer. It had worked fine up until now.

Its sounds to me like the external unit has died. This seems to be a common problem with this manufacturer after about a year of use. In most cases the actual hard drive will be fine but it will have to be removed from the case in order for the data to be accessed.

Monitor just wont work. Period.

Your monitor have a bad condensatorin the PSU.

The only thing to do is to replace the Power Supply Unit (very expensive, more than a new monitor) or if you have electronic tools, found and replace that condensator.(cheaper way...)

Anyway, have you tried to replace your VGA card ? The problem could be there too !!

Best Regards!

Deep freeze computer inresponsive

it sounds like your computer power supply went bad.
go to your local computer store and buy a power supply, install it and you should be up and running.

that is if you didn't fry everything from running it without the proper cooling.

make sure that you have proper cooling fans in your computer, a fan outside will not do it.
It sounds like your power supply fan stopped working and it just got to hot and died

Samsung 50" DLP Lamp died, new lamp will not light`

Bad news.  Mine did the same thing.  Mine is the 61", but the internals are basically the same.  I replaced the lamp and the problem was fixed.  Then after a couple days, it died again.  I replaced the ballast, to no avail.  Took it to the certified repair center and they said I needed a new DLP Light Engine.  They wanted $1250 to fix it, but I was able to order one online from for $700 and fixed it myself.  No problems since.
Your certified repair center will charge a minimal fee to diagnose and then you can fix it yourself if you choose.
The easist fixes for the lamp problems are A) replacing the bulb and B) replacing the ballast.  Anything else, you'll want a certified tech to diagnose the problem.

Dead monitor,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lcd viewsonic

If the power supply is not wqrking then it is the invertor unit that has dies.
Replace the monitor is the best advice- If it that recent out of warranty may be worth contacting 'viewsonic to see if they will discount you one.

No power at all

Maybe your cmos battery has died. Buy a new one for about $5.00 and replace it. It is the battery that saves the settings for the motherboard but if it is dead the motherboard will get absolutely no power.
When you replace it, leave the power plugged in to the cpu for a couple minutes to charge up the battery and regain the settings and then try to power on the cpu again. If this still doesn't help then check the power supply.
