Last nite my hp pentium 4 was working fine but when today want to turn on it is not working now only blink red lite there small on pc .. Whst happend with it please help me out


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Webcam for Presario C700 not working


Hi v_tahseen,

There is a couple reasons this could happen.
1. You might have another program that's using the camera and it is conflicting.
2. The software is not turning on the camera in which point try to turn it on manually.
Just for the heck of it try to use the camera without the youcam software if it still don't work.
Then uninstall youcam and see if it works.
Sometimes software is not compatible with all computers and it does some funky things.

Dell compter shutting off


The problem is the NT user file on your computer has got corrupted. Since you have already tried restarting your computer a couple of times Last know good configuration feature of Xp would not work

Steps you can take :
When you power on the system and dee the Dell logo, tap on the F8 key slowly 5-8 times , you would see windows advanced options menu.
Select Safe mode and hit enter .
In case the system goes into safe mode , try doing a system restore .
Otherwise u need to repair windows through the disks that Dell might have sent you.
