Question about Compaq Presario 7360 (163874-003) PC Desktop

1 Answer

We had an electrical storm and I did not have surge protection on my Compaq 7360 desk top. Now, I cannot get any movement on my computer, it is dead. I have checked the receptacle and it is OK. Is there a reset button anywhere on the back of the computer or is it just probably fried? Thanks.

Sorry to tell you your computer is indeed fried. Go inside and check the motherboard fuse although I serious doubt it will work again

No surge protector will hold back a lightning strike. Any one who sells these at a specialty computer store will tell you that. High school kids that work at Best Buy don't know anything if you ask them.

My Sony KDL-46V3000 television HDMI ports no longer worked following a thunderstorm, and a factory/power reset did not fix the problem. Do you know what board I need to replace (GF1,DF2,DF3)?


A nearby electrical storm can cause a voltage surge in the mains electrical supply or a very close storm could send a discharge along the antenna downlead and either way the ultra-sensitive CMOS logic chips are likely to be damaged. Such chips are likely to be found throughout a modern tv.

These days a tv is less a television and more computer and should always be used with a surge protector though these cannot provide full protection.

I suggest you entrust diagnosis to an experienced engineer in order to reduce the frustration and expense to a minimum.

Why does my tv turn on then off , on, off continuosly by its self an wont stop


Electrical storms can damage components. Are you insured?

When you get the TV fixed/replaced, buy some surge protectors or a UPS (uninteruptable power supply) to protect the rest of your gear.

I have an E1000 Linksys. It stopped working after the storm. I uninstalled the software, rebooted my computer and unplugged and waited for 2 minutes after nplugging the modem and router. No such luck. ...


Your Linksys most likely been zapped by the storm.
It pays to connect your computer equipment into a power surge protection power board to protect the equipment from storm and power surges.

Find out what the F03 error is for and then check out the appropriate area. If there was a strike of surge the most likely place to look for damage is the area where the electricity first enters into the device.

After an electrical storm the vcr combo do not come on


johngreen,


Unfortunately this is a worst case scenario. Electrical storms with electrical surges can wreak havoc on all electrical devices if they are not protected with a surge protector. The bad thing is it will cost to more money to have the board replaced as opposed to buying another unit. In the future it is best to invest in a surge protector and protect all your electronic devices. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com.

After an electrical storm my Acer m1640 has no power although the mains power lead is intact. Are there any internal fuses that could have blown


Hi,
Sorry, no fuses. Lightning is a major cause of computer failure. Failure could be a power supply, motherboard, processor or the whole system.

Next time get your computer a good surge protector. They are cheap and protect your computer from electrical mishaps.

Freezer door left open


Your fridge should be fine, if you have surges that frequently getting a whole house surge protection package would make alot of sense. Surges are especially damaging to electronic circuits found in TV's computers, cell phones, answering machines aell frankly in just about everything. Well worth the charge.

UPS issues with bad power


First, most of the UPS sensitivity can be adjusted. Setting a higher sensitivity will make the UPS compensable much faster if the current goes to high to too low thus always providing a good power quality to the equipments. For example, on a BackUPS RS the low level can be configured from 94V to 104V and the high level from 126V to 136V. An entry-level UPS such as the APC BackUPS ES will switch to battery mode as soon as the power goes out of the sensitivity range. On the other hand, a high-end UPS for workstation like the APC BackUPS RS has a feature called Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) that compensate at some extent without requiring the battery; this makes the battery last longer before needing to be replaced.

Second, most of the UPS have "Battery Protected" and "Surge only" outlets. Make sure that the computers are connected to the "Battery Protected". The "Surge only" outlets will only protect from parasites or surges like a thunder storm. They should be used for less important stuff like a desk lamp or devices with high demand peek such as a laser printer.

Third, the use of a power bar connected to the "Battery Protected" side should not have any impact as long as it is not overloading the UPS. Personnaly, I have a power bar connected to both my UPS.
