Hi,

Probably the its a frozen reader issue, try these steps:

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. While the reader is connected hit the reset button for 3 seconds, and make sure the redlight comes on.
3. Leave the reader connected for 15 minutes, then disconnect it and see if operational now
4. If the reader still not turning on, try the reset and slide the power switch.

GoodLuck!

Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

Bestec is a low quality power supply. Used to save the computer manufacturer money.

Also, a Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail will put out enough power to light LED lights, and perhaps spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on, and/or keep it on.

A) ALL the LED lights use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

C) A typical Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Replace the Power Supply. Clean the inside of the computer out, with a can of compressed air for computers before installing.

What is the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number. The Model Number is on the back of a desktop computer tower next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower.
Post back in a Comment.

My monitor will not turn on, it was working fine yesterday and then I turned it off when I went to bed and when I woke up this morning, the power light is weakly flashing a dim yellow, but it wont turn on.


kmbass24, Could be "black screen of death" problem. The problem is inside the monitor! Most likely a power supply problem. If not handy with soldering iron, solder wick, removal/install of bad filter capacitors, and use of DVM then a tech will need to troubleshoot unit. Some units can be repaired for less than $12 in parts!!! It's the charge for labor that gets you in the end. $20 min per hr. Your monitor is no different than any other brand. Go to YOUTUBE and view some typical BSoD repair vids of "LCD monitor disassembly" LCD monitor repair" FYI and learn what the 2 common ROOT CAUSES of BSoD are. Hint for you is this: Have you seen the NEW style screw-in, curlie-Q, energy saving compact fluorescent LIGHT BULBS! Very similar technology is used to light-up your LCD panel to enable you to SEE what is on the display!
If this was of some interest, rate this response on fixya. bye for now.

Display Screen Went Dark...


This would seem like the power supply is broken and the computer is working off the battery or the setting need to be changed in power management. Whenever you disconnect the power supply and work form the battery, as power saving mode, windows will dim the back light to the display. First check if the power supply is charging the battery and then check your settings in the following: Start menu -  Programs - IBM - Battery MaxiMiser Wizard. Follow the steps until you get to the LDC display level. You may need to increase that.
