Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

A60 PROBS hey, it hadn't been doing nothing. when it used to work it would run fine, but now it makes no noises or nothing when i turn it on, simply the blue light flickers on, and off for a second, and nothing comes on. Like i said before, It had taken me a few tries to turn it on before 3 days ago, and it would finally boot up, but now nothing happens.

I would open it up and check all connections and just push them in. Also check your power supply input connection to make sure they aren't cracked on the board.

To open it up, you just have to remove the screws on the bottom and then the panels should pull apart. You may need to run a fingernail or flat-headed screwdriver around the panel to get it off.

Let me know if you have any further questions with doing this, and you can respond in your original question thread.

SPoradic faults when booting


This problem isn't easy to diagnose, but there are some things you can try to narrow down the problem. Do this at your own risk, but go into the bios settings and check your processor temperature. Take note that if there's a a feature to enable processor throttling (on-die throttling) your processor will slow down significantly. You will be rewarded by taking the time to make sure your heatsink is mounted on the cpu perfectly with good thermal paste. I know that heatsink is hard to snap in there and I would recommend practicing it a couple times with the processor not in the socket. Then clean the processor face and heatsink with alcohol. Once you "squish" the bead of thermal paste on there the first time, you cannot pull back. If you move the heatsink even a little air will get pulled into the thermal paste and make your processor overheat. This could make it slow down to a crawl to keep from burning up or it'll simply turn the computer off.
If your motherboard has an onboard speaker (the thing that beeps once when you turn it on) see if it beeps in a certain pattern when you turn the computer on and the problem happens. This pattern is an error code you can look up to tell you what part of the machine is malfunctioning. If your mobo doesn't have a speaker, you can pick one up at radioshack for about 3 dollars that just plugs in.
Your power supply may be to blame. I'm assuming it's a cheap or oem one and the connectors are inferior and almost worn out. If the power connectors aren't seated properly in the components, it's possible that the power connector on the motherboard will power the power supply on, powering the fans and everything, but some of the special voltages exotic components need to run isn't there. A part of your power supply also may be failing and trying to warn you.
If the broken cpu pin you refer to is one of the contact pins the cpu uses to connect to the motherboard, that could cause all kings of problems.
Lastly, a computer's ram seems to be the magical thing that randomly decides for no reason to not work sometimes. Run an analysis on your ram, try even switching the sticks to different slots. If the sticks are cheap, or old, they maybe randomly failing. The ram brings the computer down when it does. Ram sticks are actually only rated for a finite number of insertions. When you plug it into the socket, the contacts get scraped. Most ram significantly diminishes after only 5-6 insertions!

Sound doesn't turn on after a few minutes!


hey you must be using win xp home edition sp2 - had similiar probs!
either do all the automatic updates available from microsoft.com

or install win2000, if it is an older model u use this might do, but ensure you got the right drivers for all your components and made a backup of all your personal data.

I think the fan is making a super loud grinding noise.


I would not recommend this. You could fry your cpu and then you would have no notebook. If you are going to open the notebook make sure there is nothing interfering with the fan. The fan can be replace. Take the fan out and try to replace it, if needed. Do not run the notebook without a fan.

Codecs problem!


Try installing the K-Lite codec pack. This installs many of the required codecs for your system. It is available from: http://www.free-codecs.com/K_lite_codec_pack_download.htm. The standard version should get you covered.

Loud Fan Noise


Usually the fan on graphic card dies first. It can be replaced with another one but I'd suggest you to build in 80 or 100 mm fan to blow directly on your graphic card cooler. Remove the lid and check if perhaps some cable has fallen close/into fan blade. It must be one of those two. I'm 90% certain.

Monitor screen went sideways


Try the ALT key and the Up Arrow.
If that does not work, try CRT ALT UP and DOWN arrows till you can rotate your display.
