If you Optiplex immediately goes to strike F2 for set up it is most likely the CMOS battery has failed and needs to be replaced. Once it is replaced you will need to reset the BIOS and save the settings. When you reboot, it should then go back to normal. Here are some videos to help you along. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Change+CMOS+battery&aq=f

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

My Gateway 838GM keeps freezing up


When you do get the pc to start do a disk cleanup, by right clicking the c: drive and going into properties in my computer and put a tick next to all of the boxes and hit next to delate them all. Once that has finished defrag the drive, this can be found in the start bar, programs, acessories, system tools. When that is finished go to start bar in the run or search text bar type cmd to open a command prompt window, and type chkdsk c:/f and press enter, it want do anything straight away and will ask you if you would like it to start it the next time the computer boots type "Y" for yes and exit the command prompt. Before restarting the system goto my computer, c: drive , windows , then scroll down until you see a folder named prefetch, open the folder and sellect all, highltight one file by a single left click on it and prees "ctrl"then "A" this highlights everything, hold the shift button down and press delete to delete the entire folders contence, once done reboot the pc. post back if this helps.cheers.

My refrigerator wont get cold and it is on the highest temperature possible the freezer is working fine. its still makeing ice but its just that the refrigerator wont get cold. its also 10 years old.


Always set the controls to their "normal" recommended setting. Changing them will not work. Is there air blowing from the freezer? The freezer fan may not be working. Or if it is, possibly the air flapper could be stuck closed not letting air flow into the refrigerator.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T starting problem


This car won't start unless the gear is in the P position. Some times the sensor that tells the computer that the gear is in the P position doesn't make a good contact and the car won't start. Move the gear backwards and forwards until it makes a good contact and the car will start again.

Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos


My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?
