Adaptor settings The adaptor settings got changed, I don't know exactly to what... but now my computer will boot up and the monitor works up until the windows finishes loading and then it shuts down.

Take out the video adaptor that you have installed and see if you can boot up with only the on-board video, first in standard mode and then if it won't work, try the safe mode..

Did you change any other settings?

Also, when you had the video card installed, did you disable the onboard video?

My Lacie 300794U suddenly blinks with a blue light but does not link up. Replaced power cord but still does the same thing.

disk drive p/s are very touchy. find the exact specs for the input for that drive. power adapters are within a general range and tolerance. you cannot mix any computer 5 volt adaptor. I took mine to a computer store, a small family shop and tied a toshiba 5v adaptor. and worked perfect. from the picture it appears that you are using an a/c 110v to d/c 5v adaptor. it it wirks intermittently then you may have a break at the bend in the cord, if it flucuates the adaptor interfaces may have a bad connection inside the drive box. if your handy open the lid and make sure the 5v connecter has the +5 red and gnd black haven`t come loose..the sneaky way is to go to best buy and purchase the exact same model and try the power supply, if successful you recover all the data and return the new unit. but you still don`t have a drive, or keep the new one and format the old drive
throw out the old adaptor and now you have 2 drives with one plug in. you can use the older formatted one to store partition image, and the new one for eveyday.. remember voltage in electronics kills ie. 13-14v will burn the drive, current is ok 1-3 amps no problem because this is what the drive can draw as required..THIS IS ONLYFOR D/C never use a variable voltage adapter like from radio shack, somtimes you set at 12v d/c and my multimeter reads 14-15
which will set on fire most electronics, portable radio etc.
I don`t know if you a computer or electronics background so I tried to cover my bases, hope this helps

I would agree, try plugging the psp's memory card into a computer and delete it from the psp that way. you may need to buy a memory stick duo adaptor if you don't already have one.
If the psp still won't boot up after deleting the cheat engine file. plug the psp's memory card into a computer that has an adaptor for memory cards(you may need to buy a memory stick duo adaptor unless you already have one), and go to my computer, then right click the disc that it is, and then click format, then click start. Hopefully this should help

Describe your dream machine sony icf cs10ip Problem Its power adaptor blew up.......what is the DC input,for me to buy a adaptor?

I have the same problem. I used in on a trip to Europe and plugged it in on 220v. Now I have to replace the power adaptor and I took it to 3 different repair shops. They all told me thye needed to know the specification of the power adaptor, like output voltage and mA in order to change it. But these info are not specified on the adaptor like it should. So I spoke to a sony representative over a online chat and she told me the adaptor doens`t come with the speaker, it's not from sony and they do not have this onformation I needed. So we tried with a 500 mA 3v and the clock was showing but there was not sound, the ipod was not being charged, etc. So we changed it to a 900mA and 6v. It works now! Well, I don know if these are the right specification but everything is working perfectly. I'm just not sure if it can get damaged after a while if these are not exactly the right voltage and power.

Screen went blank on my e-475m laptop. Please help!

does a external monitor work on this?
it may be in external monitor mode ..try Fn+F4 to toggle the monitor

here is a link to the user guide

if none these work ..try my tip

possibly the safety system kicking in

step #1: remove the battery and all other external hardware
step #2: disconnect the power adaptor
step #3: press and hold the power button for 10-20 seconds
step #4: connect the power adaptor only! no battery!
step #5: press the power button to start system.
spet #6; If the system boots and you have video let it boot and run for 10 miniutes ... then shut down and reconnect the battery....
step #7: reboot system If system is still good repeat step#6

continue this process until all hardware is reconnected.....

This is very common among all laptops especially if they are connected to the adaptor for very long periods of time without using the battery. The process of holding the powerbutton with no energy to the laptop drains the power out of all of the capacitors on the system board and thus allows the system to boot normally once energy is reconnected

Dell Inspiron B130 Battery Problem

Sounds like the cells in the battery went bad. Try to turn on your laptop with just the ac adaptor hooked up and your battery out off the laptop to make sure that your ac adaptor is working properly. If you can boot up into windows with just the ac adaptor hooked up then you know your ac adaptor is good.

If you get that far then try a different battery and see if the laptop charges with another known good battery. If it does then you know your original battery is bad. If it doesn't charge your different known good battery then you know the motherboard is bad. Hope this helps.

Notebook power problem

Good evening Arapa, Before I went any further I?d make sure the new A/C adaptor and battery are working correctly. Over the years I?ve had many brand new or refurbish parts wind up not working. Also verify that they are the correct ones for your laptop. The next candidate is the charging circuitry or power distribution in the laptop. Since it involves major disassembly I don?t usually recommend this option to the typical user unless they have experience working with and handling electronics, a good mechanical aptitude and are willing to live with the results of damaging the laptop beyond economic repair. Most times a local factory authorized and trained tech can give you a good estimate of what it will cost and save you the cost of buying test parts you may not need. Let us know how things turn out and don?t forget to rate the posting.
