To power the unit back on, press the "Mode" and "Reset" buttons at the same time. Let go of those two buttons, press the power button, and the unit will turn back on."

All cords are correctly put on, when I turn the desktop on, my monitor doesnt power on, its stay off.

I apologize for thinking so simply, however, your monitor has a separate power button and power cord. Therefore, even if you computer is off, there should be power to the monitor unless the monitor is not plugged in or the power button is turned off.

Check the power button and power cord for the monitor.

My acer laptop is turning on plz help me

First check your power cord/charger. If there is a green light on it and it is lit then that is working. Even if your battery is dead it should turn on with the power cord. If your power cord is fine then it is most likely your motherboard.

Won't turn on even with power cord plugged in

By dumping the power while running you have trashed your Operating System or blown up the Ram

Insert your OS disk and see if it comes to life , if it does then you may have to try a repair from the OS installation CD

If you have popped the Ram then the only solution is to get it checked out on another PC

Your problem indicates that your printer is not getting the power supply .

  • Check the power cord for any physical damage. If the power cord is damaged, replace the power cord.

  • If the power cord is not damaged, plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet without using a surge protector. The product power light should turn on.

  • If the product power light does not turn on, the power cord should be replaced.

Dell latitude d600 doesn't turn on

The test Dell advises to narrow down this issue is to remove the battery, hard drive, ram, and optical drive.  Next plug in the a/c power cord and you should get some LED's coming on. If not it points to the motherboard.
