Cannot enter bios in the standard way with F2. I believe IDE controller is set to disable


Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, then reboot it.

You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.


Press the F1 key immediately in one second intervals when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information.

The majority of Gateway computers use the F1 key.

If, for some reason this does not work, then use the F2.

All of Gateway's desktops use the F1 or F2 keys.


hope this helps

My screen only displays after 4 /5 hrs


Try a different screensaver.

Also look in the display properties by simply right clicking the desktop and clicking properties.

Then locate power management.

the initial seems to be a bad screensaver judging by the 20 minutes, but the 4-5 hours seems to be a sleep mode that bypasses the screensaver issue.

Have hp note book s/n ey349et#abu screen not working just blank


First of all the serial number does not help identify the model of your computer, Second, when does the screen go blank? From initial start up, after it starts up? Is the screen illuminated or dark? Please understand that since I can't see you computer you must give me more, rather than less, information to help you.

Ok I have a G3 ibook recently my screen has lost some of its color quality. When I power up all is fine until the initial screen saver kicks in then it goes to what can only be described as old color...


Step 1.After you come to desktop .right click and then select properties.> then for the color settings it should be 32 bit..you will find that option in the last tab..

Step 2. open 'Run' type dxdiag > after whic a window will open now check all the tabs and set the hardware accelaration to full.

Hope this resolve the issue..

Very dark screen


Hi,

If the desktop could be seen (albeit very dark background) then it could either be the CCF Lamps (cold cathode florescent) or the inverter that powers the lamps. One way to verify is to shine a flashlight at an oblique angle to the screen, semblance or part of the desktop could be seen.

Often, the defective component would be the inverter. It is relatively easy to replace the inverted. It is sometimes more difficult and challenging cracking open the casing of the display panel of the laptop than replacing the inverter. Additionally, inverters are readily available online. It is also not surprising that inverters for other brands/models would also be used in your Toshiba.

This would be a good place to start for inverter boards. This is a nice tutorial if you are considering a DIY.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

JVC TV AV27D305


Hi,

Assuming the CRT is still OK, it could either be:
1. Screen Voltage is low;
2. G2 B+ is out (common problem is a mega ohm resistor open);
3. a resistor gone high (or open) in the DA converter of the controller IC circuitry.

Any of the above would require extensive knowledge of electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Perhaps your best bet may be to seek the services of a professional.

Pls likewise consider the age of the TV (if a couple of years) and/or the downtime and cost of repair,. it may be more practical to purchase a replacement unit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
