Nail Polish and Cable Connecters!

After spending 24 years in the military and moving every year or two, I got tired of looking for my stereo manuals to find out where to hook all the cables. Then one day, I noticed my wife and daughter had accumulated an awesome supply of nail polish and the idea light went off in my head.<br /><br />I got several different colors of nail polish together; went to the back of the electronic cabinet and put a dab of polish above the connectors (both ends) and the same color on the cables (both ends). When I ran out of different colors I just started doing a double dab on both sides.<br /><br />The next time I had to move, I had absolutely no trouble hooking everything up and getting operational!<br /><br />Now when I pass a cosmetics counter, I ask the clerk if they have any samples that I could have. This trick works on most anything, even when I disconnect electrical cables on my vehicles, I mark each side with nail polish and never have to wonder if I got it connected to the right place.

I just brought this computer to my house from my girl friends grandmas house speakers and all worked fine now i plugged everything in the the exact speakers that were on it are plugged into it and the...

Assuming something in the computer didn't mysteriously go bad during the move, there are two possibilities. First, make sure the signal cable from the speakers is plugged in to the right place. You may have plugged it into the microphone input or line input jack by mistake. Second, be sure the speakers have power. Most speaker systems require AC power, either from a plug-in adapter or a built-in supply that needs an AC connection. (Some newer systems come with USB-powered speakers that don't need an external adapter.)

A remote possibility is that in the move, the speakers got bumped enough to disturb connections on the circuit board inside. The amplifier chip in the speaker case gets hot (especially if the volume is turned way up), and the heat can degrade solder connections, and sometimes cracks form. The move may have caused connections that were iffy to go bad. But this isn't very likely.

You'll probably find it to be a very simple missed connection. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

I moved my home office desk a few days ago. I properly powered down my computer and unplugged everything. When I reconnected everything, the computer won't power up.

1 - Make sure you have power to the outlet you plugged the computer into. 2 - Make sure all of the cables plugged into the back of the computer are firmly seated / attached.
3 - Check that the switch on the back of the computer (usually quite near the power cord) is turned on.

Needing to plug new power source to motherboard, need the diagram format

the easyest way to do it is to open up the side panel of the computer rite down the info off the side of the power supply such as voltage and so on then go out and buy the same type then as you pull out a plug from the one in your computer put in the same plug from the one you bought and you should be rite, theres nothing that technical you need to no just disconnect it from the power and pull out the plugs its that easy

Emachine t2984 - need to diagram to install power & hard drive

There is 2 main cables you have to worry about to feed power to the system. One looks like a big rectangle block with a mess of wires attached. Make sure he is hooked into the system. Then if its an newer unit you will find a plug that has square look to it with just 4 wires attached and should plug in nearby the processor. (only newer units us this) Also if your dealing with the cant turn it on issue make sure to remove all cards off the board like the NIC, Video Card, and Audio Card. I am unsure as to weather or not your system comes with everything onboard or if its stand alone cards. If you still cant power on theres a bigger issue at hand and that maybe that your motherboard has blown.
