This is ALSO a common problem for people who don't shut down their computers properly - they get away with it 99 out of a 100 times - and then this problem.

Diagnosis: It sounds like the Boot Sector is damaged (if the Computer Hums and Lights up but nothing else happens) and the cure for this is a BootFix (using DOS) or a reinstall (but selecting Repair instead of Install).

This will be done under Warranty so don't mess with it.

Take it back to the store you bought it from, it will still be under warranty. If you do anything to your computer you will void the warranty and thereby be responsible for the cost of any repairs which might have otherwise been covered by the Warranty.

On one of our two parent receivers, it's showing 1 red light with 4 green lights above it. No sound at all. The other parent receiver works just fine, perfectly clear. I think my toddler was playing...

I had the same thing happen to one of my parent units over the weekend. The issue is that the parent unit lost the pairing with the nursery unit. Once I re-paired them, it's working great again. This is in the Troubleshooting part of the manual, but I've copied below for your convenience.
If Parent Unit won't lock onto the Nursery Unit, or you purchased a new Nursery Unit, follow the procedure below to pair the Parent Unit and Nursery Unit. If you purchased a new Parent Unit, skip Step 1. The new Parent Unit is ready to pair with your Nursery Unit.
1. Erase the Pairing from the Parent Unit. Turn the Parent Unit off. Hold the Volume Down Button on the Parent Unit while pressing the On/Off Button. Continue to hold the Volume Down Button until you hear a single beep and all of the Sound Lights illuminate briefly. Release the Volume Down Button. Press and hold the Volume Down Button again. Within 2 seconds you will hear a beep. Release the Volume Down Button. All of the SoundLights and the red Loss Connection LED will be lit. The Parent Unit is ready to pair with Nursery Unit. 2. Pair the Parent Unit with Nursery. Place Nursery Unit in the same room, five (5) feet (1.5 meters) away from the Parent Unit. Turn on Nursery Unit using the On/Off Button on the side. The green power light should come on. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit will find the Nursery Unit. The SoundLights will shut off and the Parent Unit will beep. The Parent Unit is now paired with Nursery Unit. 3. Repeat this procedure if you need to pair another Parent Unit with the Nursery Unit.
Nothing happened when I turned on the Nursery Unit. What do I do? First try turning the Nursery Unit off, and then on again. If the Parent Unit still does not pair with the Nursery Unit, press the Channel Button on the Nursery Unit, then turn the Nursery Unit off, and then on again.
Hope this helps.

HP Pavillion m7750n has already had the hard drive replaced almost two years ago. The computer will be four in January. It stopped working about five months ago and I finally decided I had enough time to...

Either the disk is faulty or the the boot block is corrupted. If you have the operating system CD, you can try to reload it. Doing so will wipe out anything you have on the drive. If it reloads, you will be back in business. It the disk is faulty, the OS will not load.

You may want to take this computer into the Big Box store and have it evaluated before youtry to do this repair.

Thanks for your interest in

TV on lights keep blinking off and on but tv won't come on

The problem can be caused by either a Bad Main bd or a Bad Power Supply bd. Those two boards are the common failures. Other boards that can cause this are the T-Con bd and the Inverter bds.. To determine if your tv is in or out of warranty you need to look at your tv Purchase Receipt and see what the Purchase date is. Samsung gives you a One Year parts and labor warranty from the date of purchase on your set. You can also call 1-800-Samsung for more assistance.

Ps2 slimline parental control code

try this
  1. Bring up the screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
  2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
  3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
  4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings
