Since it doesn't show up in both pc's then the iOmega is faulty - it must have suffered a shock during transfer and this is terminal. Your only hope of recovering what's in it is to dismantle it, take out the hard disk and put it in the desktop - if even there it doesn't show up then it's dead, junk it.

Everything is plugged in turned on but no sound. I recently moved my computer system to a new location and have not been able to get the speakers to work help


I assume this is a powered unit, so first off make sure the power cord is plugged into the wall and the speakers. then make sure you are plugged into the correct jack on the PC. It is usually green in color. Finally, make sure the volume on both the speakers and the PC are turned up. Report back wit hresults.

How do you do a cold boot on a dell desk top model Inspiron 530? The computer will not boot up


Hmmm....you press the power button on the front of the case. I am not sure what you need exactly. If the computer has had a different power supply installed there could also be a power switch on the back of the case.

If everything is plugged in correctly and you don't hear fans or hard drive sounds, you most likely need a new power supply.

We have a new Acer Aspire one and the mouse is frozen. When I try to turn off the unit nothing happens. How do I free the unit or turn off everything?


As this was posted a month ago, I'm presuming you've solved the problem?
However, when your laptop locks up completely, the mouse won't move and the keyboard is unresponsive (press the caps lock key and see if the caps lock LED comes on or off?)
Press and HOLD the power button for a few seconds until the laptop powers off, Wait a few seconds and then power it on again, the computer may moan that it wasn't shut down correctly, but this is normal (because you couldn't shut down correctly)

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.

Try a few things for me OK? From what you typed, turned on the psu "the toggle switch on the psu", pc seemed to be starting up. I need you to keep the toggle switch on the power supply in the on position. Press and hold the start button on the PC case to shut it down. Give it a few seconds & power up by pressing the power switch on the case. Notice a differance? Next, unplug everything connected to the pc expect the monitor, mouse & keyboard. Try to boot. Still no? Remove the side of the case exposing the board. Turn the psu off by flipping the toggle switch on the psu, wait till the green light on the board goes out. Grab the Mb ( I know it's tight in there) and see if you can move the board in any direction. Not loose? Re-check all data & power connections for a solid connect. Re-check your case to Mb connections. Also check the PSU, there is a red slide switch it should be set to 115v. Post your findings..
