Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Recently, I had to replace my computer's power supply, which took a few days. That fixed my computer. But then I had another problem: My wireless 108G router would not work. When my computer is connected to the cable modem via the router I can't get internet connection, even on the main computer (the one hooked up to the router(, whereas if my computer is connected directly to the modem there is no problem. I would highly appreciate any help on this problem. Thanks.

Try power cycling the modem and router first. Unplug them for about 60 seconds. Plug in the modem. When all the lights come on except the activity light, plug in the router, give it ten seconds and try your pc. If not try this.On the wireless pc, there should be a icon on the taskbar that shows your signal strength if you hold your pointer over it. Right click on that and click on show available networks. If yours shows, click on that and click on connect. If that doesn't help, go to your command prompy. Start , run and then type cmd and click ok. Then type ipconfig /release. There's a space between the g and the slash. Then type ipconfig /renew. Then close the box and try your internet. You may have to go back and do the first step after doing this. If this still doesn't work, go start>my network places>view network connections. Right click on local area connection and click on repair. Try it now. If still no luck, go back to start>my network places>view network connections>right click on local area connection>click on properties. Click on Internet protocal (tcp/ip) and click on properties. Make sure Obtain IP address automatically is selected and obtain DNS Server address automatically is selected. If they are click cancel. If not, select them and click ok. Then close. Try again. If this has solved your problem please rate as fixed. If, please don't rate yet. Just add a comment and let me know what happened and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.

You may have a problem with your network configuration.
I have found that a firewall or virus protection program can prevent you from communicating in various ways.

Computer won't turn on.


There must be a problem with your power switch on your computer casing, or motherboard or power supply.

Detach your power supply and try this, to check if your power supply really works. If the auxiliary fan will turn, your power supply is good

25627818-lfqggqo5gl3n2v4xynrvsb5u-5-2.jpg If the cpu cooling fan and power supply did not turn the fan, but you have checked already the power supply that is working then you can conclude that your motherboard is need to be replace. But the power supply and motherboard and working, meaning to say your computer casing need to be replace or try fixing the contact of the switches attach to your casing.

Have a good day.

PC - dies no power, but comes to life after a few days if left unplugged. Then it works and at somepoint dies again (no fans, power, etc) How do I fix?


My first thought would be that it is a power supply problem. But, before replacing the power supply, unplug the power cord from computer and wall plug, plug it in a gain making sure it goes in all the way.
If still flaky, its probably a power supply problem.
Hope it helps.

Computer will not turn on how to fix it


I do not have experience with the Acer Aspire 5600U, so I will write about such problems in general. A desktop computer that will not turn on usually has a bad power supply, assuming you've checked the power outlet, power cord to the computer, and the fuse in the power supply. Many computers and monitors built a few years ago have electrolytic capacitors in the power supply that go bad. You can identify a bad capacitor visually. It either leaks or the top of the capacitor is no longer flat but bulges. Desktop computers with bad power supplies commonly have two bad electrolytic capacitors that bulge on top. To fix the problem, you have to be comfortable unsoldering the bad part(s) and soldering in the replacement(s). You also have to be able to identify the specifications of the part(s) you need to replace. A Google search on replacing bad capacitors will give you lots of information, including a number of good YouTube videos. Alternatively, you can buy a replacement power supply.

I am trying to power up my Dell Inspirion 530 and it just makes a beeping noise continuously. How do I fix this?


It could be many things honestly. A couple possibilities could be; you put in too much RAM/not the correction offset of RAM; CPU issues; System fan issues (though some computers will let you run it anyways pressing F2); Power supply issues; or something errored on the motherboard. Those are just a few off the top of my head. If you recently installed RAM, try putting things back the way they were previously and look online for your max RAM support. If not, look on the back of your power supply and you should see a brightly lit green LED. If it is dim, pulsing, or off...you will need a new powersupply. If light is bright and on, try opening your case and making sure all of the cables from the power supply are firmly in place on your motherboard. If after all of that and your computer is still having issues, you might need to replace your Motherboard/CPU, or both. Hope this helps. :D

Deep freeze computer inresponsive


it sounds like your computer power supply went bad.
go to your local computer store and buy a power supply, install it and you should be up and running.

that is if you didn't fry everything from running it without the proper cooling.

make sure that you have proper cooling fans in your computer, a fan outside will not do it.
It sounds like your power supply fan stopped working and it just got to hot and died

Power button


if it is the power button itself you would have to purchase the entire front panel, unless you can find some parts somewhere, but if there is no power to the system at all, you can check the four diagnostic lights, they are either on the back of the system or under the front flap, if none of those are on then you are more than likely looking at replacing the power supply and maybe the motherboard, you can check the power cord to make sure its ok, swap with the cord on the monitor they are both exactly the same.
