Feel the laptop when you start it. Can you feel the hard drive spinning up, the optical drive searching for a disk, or the fans changing speeds at all? If not, then you probably have an issue with the computer POSTing, which is what happens when your computer first turns on before accessing your Operating System.

The best solution for this is to have it physically checked out at a shop, and let them know what you've found.

T5020 emachine seems to have dead power supply- how can I confirm?


If the PSU fans only work for a short time usually this means that the PSU is shot

If you suspect your power supply has gone bad, there are a few basic things you can do to test it. First, plug the computer in and try to start up the computer. If the computer can start up or shows signs of having power (the hard drives spin up, or the fans turn on) the power supply might be fine, and you may have an issue with your motherboard or RAM. If the computer won't start at all, open the case and then turn the power supply on and attempt to start the computer. Observe the motherboard to see if any lights turn. If no lights turn on and there is no sign that power is being supplied to any of your devices, there's a decent chance that the power supply has burned out. If your computer experiences periodic crashing, feel the case near the power supply to see if it is hotter than normal, and smell the air. If the case is much hotter than normal or you smell burning, your power supply might be overheating, and may be damaged. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm hope this helps

Hi hope someone can help with my power problem. Motherboard is L7VMM3, so far tried 2 different power supplies, 2 different power leads, 2 different on/off switches, 2 different RAM modules, and 2...


Hello,

After reading your description and the tests you've done, the problem may be coming from the board itself.

If possible test another board with your power supplies and others...... If other board works just fine, the problem is with your current motherboard.

To be sure about it, you may test the board with another power supply/RAM, etc....

If problem persists, the best option is to replace the board.

My acer aspire m1641 starts and hd light flashes once then nothing just still no connection to monitor or keyboard light is on mouse,fans work no sign of burn outs or any thing .it started by crashing...


Not sure if there's any damage or not, probably not. What is sounds like, is that you have/had a faulty power supply, and it just got worse. Power supplies have at least 3 voltage outputs, and any one or all of them can go down, or work halfway at times. You can try to disconnect the CD or DVD power plugs to see if the problem still exists. Sometimes our old electronic friend "heat" takes it toll, occasionally. If you can get a good, used power supply you might try it, just for a first step If that doesn't help, and even if it does, you might also have to restore the system with the Restore CD. Good luck..

Fan overheat


Hello there iainmurray_m.

You have a desktop PC with an internal fan that is overheating, correct?

If so, without delay replace the likely failing fan.

If the fan is atop your CPU heatsink assembly, SHUTDOWN PC RIGHT NOW AND REPLACE IT BEFORE YOU FRY YOUR CPU CHIP!

Good luck, and please do post back ...

No start up blank screen


It is possible that your computer is not getting enough electricity. You need to check the power supplier, make sure the computer is not getting too hot.

HP Compaq Presario V3000 (V3430AU) PC Notebook Problem: Does not startup or boot, displaying a blank screen. Question: Can I have a mail in or drop in repair service?


If you need to send your PC out for service I would highly recommend CompUSA in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. You can contact them 954-565-1189. This is not the old CompUSA, but one of the stores bought out by Tigerdirect.com last year. Their technical staff is fantastic and very knowledgible and they have very fair prices.
I would first try a couple of things first, though. First, do you hear the fan(s) or hard drive start up and do any lights come on at all? If so, try holding down the F10 key and push the 'on' button. Continue holding down the F10 key until the 'Compaq' screen comes up. You should then get a screen that allows you to choose 'Last known configuration that worked'. (Use the arrow keys and enter button as your mouse won't work on this screen.) If this works, Windows should now boot normally. Go immediately to and 'right click' on My Computer. Go down and 'left click' on Properties. Choose the 'Hardware' tab, then click on 'Device Manager'. Do you see an exclaimation mark next to any listing? If so - right click on that device and choose 'update driver' then just follow the default choices.
If you have no signs of life (no lights or sounds) when you try to start the PC, it's probably a bad power supply (inside) & that probably means a new main board.
If you get lights and sounds (fans, etc.) like it's running normally, but you can't see the screen, it may need a new 'back-light bulb or new screen - probably cheaper than replacing PC.

Probably loose connector - remove lid and check cables and CPU fan and heatsink are on properly.
Go intp BIOS menu and check for hard disk (press F2 or DEL if you can!)
