When pushing the power button on the tower, the power lights on the tower, mouse, and keyboard continually flash, and the computer does not actually turn on. The only way for the flashing to stop is by...


The power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This means that either your power supply is bad or the motherboard. Try removing all devices attached to your computer and check your USB ports to see if they are damaged.

Wont post led 3 flashes


if its the red flashing light on the tower, its the hard drive activity light.

when the monitor goes on stand by, does the tower retain power? (green light on and flashing red light sometimes?) Does your keyboard's scroll lock/num lock/caps lock keys and keyboard lights work?

Disk won't eject on my iMac


Ok, I assume you have hit the eject button on the keyboard. Try dragging the CD icon on the desktop to the trash can. If that doesn't work, Shut down the computer and start up while holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Another option is to open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder. Another option is to Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Lastly if your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button. One of these should work.

My disk drive is stuck and won't open


Hello,

Try first a soft eject: Go to my computer, Point the CD-ROM drive, right click mouse button, and choose eject. If that dose not work, examine the face of the drive and look for a small pin hole. Insert a blunt paper clip in the pin hole and press gently. The drive should open.

Hope it helps.
