First thing to do is check your RAM. If there is more than one RAM chip, remove one of the chips, and try booting. This will allow you to rule out a RAM issue.

Hello fixya experts i'm having problems with my computer When i press the power button the light around it lights up but it doesn't make the 'beep' sound it's supposed to i felt...


In most of the cases i have found this kind of problem occurs due to the faulty RAM, You can try with new RAM or if you are using two RAM with 1GB each than you can try booting PC with single RAM one by one This way you can know the faulty RAM.

All the Best

I have a new key cut and the security comes on. What can I do?


If your old key has a chip in it,then the dealer ship will have to code it.If not,try relearning the key to the ignition,turn the key on,leave it on 10 minutes,then turn it off,and right back on,do this three times,a total of thirty minutes,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Gps won power up when car charger burn frm fuse


Unfortunately it sounds like when the car charger went bad it also did in the board on your tt. It would be cheaper to just purchase another unit than to get this one repaired out of warranty. My advice would be to sell it on ebay. People buy these all the time for spare parts.
Hope this helps

Tower problems


You may need to replace the cmos battery, its a cr2032 3v button cell
Make sure all your expansion cards and memory are reseated.
Make sure all cables are reseated.
your power supply could be bad

If that doesn't work try this


Here is my fix for the dell dimension 4400 amber light problem. It works!
replace cmos battery.
then unplug power cord form wall about 5-10 secs.
then plug it back in, wait 5 secs.
If amber light comes on, press and hold power button until it goes out.

(with light out, press and hold power button while amber light comes on and goes off again holding power button 2-3 secs after light goes out.) repeat whats in parenthesis until computer turns on
it should only take about 6, 7 tries.

After the computer boots, you may want to setup cmos or boot into windows.
After you shutdown, unplug power cord for 5-10 secs then plug it back in.
Press and hold the power button, computer should come on.
I found that's the only way to turn on the computer.
If you shutdown and don't unplug power cord the computer may not boot, mine didn't.
Strange I'd say

EVO ! wont boot


If the RAM is fine, but it's turning itself off after 10 seconds or so, then it's highly likely the motherboard needs replaced. What I would suggest, if you are comfortable doing it however, is to check the fan isn't simply clogged up (this will determine whether it is a problem with the motherboard itself, or simply a problem with the fan overheating, and the motherboard turning off as a fail-safe). Bear in mind, this will require stripping the laptop down, and should only be done if you can put it back together properly.
