You got a crimped LCD wire and the pressure is relieved when you push the screen all the way back. You got to open this puppy up and look behind the hinges to see where the wire is binding. The next culprit is the video chip is toast. Apple may replace the chip for you if it's the Nvidia chip, since Nvidia released a bach of sh.t chips not long ago.

My mac laptop will not boot up, a white screen comes up then after quite some time a folder with a question mark comes up. My batteries are pretty old, but this happens when it is plugged in.

Two possible things are wrong either your hard drive has failed or your system has corrupted. Put your instal disk in. Start your mac up and hold down the c key. Once it has started check that the hard drive exists by go to the menu bar and selecting the disk utility. If the hard drive shows it means that it is okay. Then run the disk utility check drive and then run the repair permissions. You can then try restarting, if it works then you are back up and running again. If it does not you will need to reinstal your system. You do this by starting up with the instal disk holding down the c key and run the instal script. To keep your hard drive contents you MUST use the preserve users instal which will come up as an option. Do not reformat the hard drive as this will wipe all your information.

If you have been running time machine as your backup operation you could instal a totally clean system and then select the time machine backup once the new system has been laid down using the migration utility in the utilities folder within the applications folder.

If your hard drive does not show up the hard drive is probably a gonner and you will have to purchase a new hard drive and instal a fresh system.

Hope this helps

How do i reseat my hard drive, Dell insperon bought in May 2010in Australia. and how can it move if its never been dropped or bumped

You'll need a small-head phillip's screwdriver. Power down the system, remove the battery and the power cord. Hold power button down for 10 secs to discharge any remaining power. Alright, close the laptop lid, place laptop upside down.
On the side with the headphone jack, media reader, and usb ports- you'll see two screwholes- those are for your hard drive. remove them, and CAREFULLY slide the drive out- you'll feel a slight click to it. CAREFULLY slide the drive back in until the plastics are flush- reinsert the screws, and reinsert the battery, power- fire up. Should be good to go! The reason it could require a reseat is the drive uses a pin to cartridge adapter- if that has shifted, then it could cause some problems. Other than that- it should stable, esp. if the screws are in place.

Damaged 24 iMac screen - want to use ext monitor via "mirroring" in screen preferences, but cannot access system preferernce due to damaged screen...any suggestions

There is an elegant way to solve this, but it requires another compatible model Mac.
Boot the damaged Mac into FireWire Transfer mode by holding down the "T" key immediately after hearing the startup chime. Attach a FireWire cable between the two Macs. Start up the other Mac by holding down the "option" key after hearing the startup chime. Choose the startup drive from the broken Mac. Now your good Mac is booted off the drive of the broken Mac, and any configuration changes you make will be made on the hard drive of the broken Mac.
Attach the external monitor temporarily to the good Mac. Open System Preferences and set the monitors up in mirrored mode. Shut down the good Mac. Then hold the power button in on the broken Mac until the power turns off, and remove the FireWire cable.
Now move the external monitor to the broken Mac and boot it. It should come up in mirrored mode.

My computer is starting up, but it is slow and without icons. it is g4 ibook mac only background blue i can move my mouse over the screen. thanks

From a powered-down state, press the power key and immediately hold down the shift key (safe boot) until the Mac boots all the way to the desktop. If this fixes the problem, you have some global or local system preference that is interfering with the operation of your machine. If this does not solve the problem, you may have a faulty hard drive. If you head the hard drive making periodic noises when the blue screen is present, it may be the system trying and failing to read a data block that it needs in order to proceed. In this case, your hard drive will need replacement.

Blue screen after logging into adminstrator but no desktop icons?

Start with OS X cd/dvd. put the cd in and restart, hold down C after you turn the laptop on. when the disk starts up, try to repair the hard drive (verify and repair permissions). I'd also try getting your hands on Disk Warrior, which can fix lots of hard drive problems. You might have to reinstall OS X though if it's bad. If you have to do this, you may want to upgrade the harddrive because that might be what caused the problem in the first place. If you go to repair permissions and it finds problems and repairs them. Try it again. If it finds problems the second time, you may have a bad hard drive. See how my answer is longer than your question. It really helps to provide details and specifics if you want a good answer. just keep that in mind if you reply. thanks. good luck.

Lg glimmer touch screen not working

Alright most likely you are like me and keep your cell in your pocket or anywhere loose. What has happened is there is debris or water under the clear cover over the screen. Look at the front of your phone and peel the front right corner off the screen cover off....dont worry it will stick back on. On the top right corner there is a gold rectangle. Rub it a couple times until you see the touch screen moving...these are the sensors. Place the clear screen back on. This should help. Hope this works for did for me.

so mine broke at work ... took about 10 minutes to pop the back off without a screw driver ... then you unhook the battery. afterwards u can still use it as a USB thumbdrive or you can try hooking up the positive and negative wires to a 9volt battery with some electric tape ... at least it's not a total loss if u can still use it as a portable usb thumbdrive. alright well, BACK TO WORK! be sure not to burn urself on the battery. don't try to pop the metal things off, that's how i burned my finger. smells like burned plastic now.

I am assuming that you have a Windows platform. Take the hard drive out out and try it on a Mac. Sometimes a Mac will pick up faster than Windows. I would try that first for sure. Finding a Mac computer is not hard if you have a computer retail store near bye. Some smaller outfits may test it for you for free and hook it up to a Mac. If my solution sounds off the wall: consider opening your hard drive knowing that any wrong tinkering can easily result in a totally useless drive. If you are ready to open it if a Mac doesn't work, go slow and don't bang it around. You can't get very far, but you could check for any loose wires and check the board with a tester when no power is attached. You should not try to open the area with the physical drives, any wrong move there will destroy any chance of recovery. If all seems to fail, then yes, give it a tap or so. The FBI will do it for a crazy cost that would make buying a car easy.Good luck
