Needs to be recognized to turn the drive on via usb. if desktop, try a port on the back of the computer. Else go into control panel/system/hardware and delete and "unknown device" then right click on the computer in that applet and select scan for changes.see if it picks it up. also try cycling power to the drive while it is connected ( reverse order - connect then power)

Lg screen cant display. turned off after about 30 mins

Sounds like its not receiving a Signal, I would try changing your source (VIDEO) cable and trouble shoot the source itself, whats pushing the LG? If its a cable box I would unplug it for about a minute and plug it back in. Test your connection on a dvd or computer to see if it will get an image from another source if it does then the problem lies with your cable company and the box need to be fixed or replaced.... LGs are durable TVS Its very rare that I have to actually go on site to fix one its normally done over the phone because the problem is usally the source not the TV>

It dose not starts I don,t know whats wrong

When Jigsaws do not start, you have to check the power to them is good. Try checking the power socket by plugging a light into it instead of the jigsaw.

Everytime i turn the car off it resets the headunit whats wrong with it

is the yellow wire connected to a constant power source? the yellow wire needs to be connected to a source that still has voltage when the key is off, as it controls the memory of the radio.

Computers has power but will not turn on monitor,fans on blue light on, yellow light constant. cd slide opens and closes normal.

First the obvious, monitor is on? Cables are connected securely to back of monitor and PC? Power cable/power adapter are all connected and plugged in? If a power adapter is used, it will feel warm.
I am assuming it was working on some point and then stopped.

If you are getting power to monitor and it's power light is on, then I'd suggest a problem with the video output on PC

If you are not getting power to monitor or it's light is not on, the problem is with the monitor.It may have gone out on you. Try attaching to another computer.

When i turn my computer on the big button which is usually green doesnt work. there is a smaller light which is also usually green just below the big one which starts green as i turn it on and then it goes...

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).
