    As far as I am aware there is no way to reset the machine. However, the disc will now spin(my grand daughter has been fiddling with it) and I get sound but no visuals. The screen does work as it gives a message on screen that you have chosen "line in", but the on screen menu does not appear!

What you will want to do is look for your restore factory defaults option usually found on a disc or available via startup by holding a few buttons after performing a defaults reset you will know whether or not the computer is going to require technical support or not but I would suggest if its still under warranty returning it for a new one to save yourself the trouble

hope this helps

TV is 3 years old, HDTV roughly 40 inch, will not power up at all. Any idea? Sony of course won't do anything.

Sony will repair it for you if you consult an Authorised Sony Dealer. I take it it is a Sony?

Dead sets can be caused by many things from a simple fuse to a power supply breakdown.
If you have a flashing light on the front, that will be usefull as it is an error code for the engineer.
Hope that helps.

Dell loptop wont turn on

take out ur batteries, clean the terminals with spirit or light alcohol, then re-insert it. better u use direct power supply but be sure to check that the power is beig supplied and the terminals/sockets are cleaned.
did this helped u. if not, tell me, when u push the power on button of ur notebook, does anything happens, like the fans start spinning or light went on. does the screen turn on or does something appears on the screen?
if nothing is happenng after pressing the power button, then this is a clear case of problem with ur power recieving section of the notebook. go to your pc dealer.

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.

Toshiba setellite black out

Sounds like the back light on the screen isn't working properly which will need to be replaced if this is the case. Check for a very dark image on the screen when it is booting up in a well lit room, if you can see the computer start up then it is the back light.
