You could have a disk in the drive that won't boot, or the operating system could be corrupt.
If you have the original system disk, put it in and try to boot from it. Follow the prompts to repair your Operating system.

    The operating system is working. The only problem is the explorer.exe does not load. Possible cause would be corruption or virus infection.

TI-81 when turned on, screen is totally black, can perform calculations & barely see results on screen. is this a battery problem?


Adjust the screen contrast. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2nd key. Press and hold the down-arrow key to lighten the screen. If you go too far, use the 2nd and up-arrow keys to darken it.

Using my Acer CPU, I successfully plug in the speakers to the green receptacle. Works find. But should I be able to connect a second set of speakers in another room, run in the wire and plug into one of...


the green plug is for sound OUTPUT (to speakers with an amplifier), the blue is for sound pre amp INPUT (like a MP3 player or a any other device like an old 4 track casset WALKMAN player) the pink one is for a MICROPHONE INPUT, the black is for a surround system OUTPUT, and the yellow is for a digital OUTPUT all for a surround 5.1 system, so you have to look closer you will notice some difference in the icons stamp in the back, green has a sound wave symbol with an arrow going outwards the pink one has a sound wave symbol with a MIC symbol, the blue has a sound wave symbol with an arrow going inwards, the black and the yellow has a sound wave symbol with a digital symbol

conclusion... you can use the green OUTPUT to feed to one amplifier, if you want to feed music to multiple amplifiers you need a SOUND MIXER with at least two outputs, you can buy a chap sound mixer for about 20$, go to your local electronic store and EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO DO and they will sell you exactly what you need...

Hope this helps!

Good luck!

As the computer boots. The screen goes black. Nothing happens


When you mention boots, Is the computer able to POST a message to the screen or do you mean switching the computer on and there nothing POST to the screen. If your computer is able to post and then you get a black screen after that with possibly a flashing underscore symbol, then you are missing a O.s or your harddrive is currupted. If nothing is POST to the screen once the computer is turned on, then there could be couple of culprit that is causing this defect to RAM memory error, VGA, CPU, or the Motherboard itself..... The only way to test what is actually wrong is to have other hardware compatiable to test the computer itself.... would reccommend you taking it in to a computer shop since they have diagnositc tools, unless you have other computer hardware to test this with.

The power will come on but the screen is black.


After you let the computer boot up, press the Fn key and look for the "F" keys that have small tv screen on them or a sun symbol with an up or down arrow. It sounds like the computer may be in external monitor mode or the screen brightness has been turned all the way down. If you have an external monitor you can attach to the computer, it may help with troubleshooting it, so you can go to your display settings

Need to identify zena diode D513for JVC model #AV-20F702


Hi: I am asumming you are talking about a zener diode. The only way to identify one is by the electronics symbol on the board in question. Regular diodes symbols have an black arrow symbol with a line across the top of the arrow, on the other hand a zener diode has the same black arrow but the line aross the top of the arrow is staggered or crooked, sort of like the letter Z turned on its side.
