Computer won't boot

I left my computer running overnight and this morning it was off. When I tried to power it up, it wouldn't work - faint DVD spinning sounds, no fans, no monitor or keyboard bootup. After work today I tried again - now the fan is functional and the DVD drive makes faint spinning noises - but no monitor connection or keyboard bootup. I tried connecting a different monitor to the computer with no success. I tried powering down, unplugging peripherals, plugging back in, and powering up - no success. After many tries of powering on and off, I finally got to a boot screen (Entering Safe Windows mode, press F10 for setup, F11 for BIOS, etc)- but no further. Please help!

    Connected the power cable and the keyboard. Fans turned on, but
    no beep as it checked the BIOS, the keyboard lights (scroll lock, caps
    lock, num lock) didnt blink either. Have been searching the
    forums and it appears that many folks using the same motherboard have
    had problems - will try resetting the BIOS directly and see if that
    works.

Black screen with sound


Hi all

I had a similar problem with Coby dvd 7500 the screen was faint almost black but could hear the movie sound. I cleaned the lens as suggested but it didnt resolve the problem.

I tired to rest the player by removing the power supply cord and the battery for 30 mins as suggested in the manual but that also didnt work. What I did was left the player without battery and the power cord overnight and it did start working in the morning!!

This worked for me and hope works for you guys too...

All the best.

Cheers

Why won`t my mp3 take itself off hold?


Power & Hold switch
Slide and hold in the opposite direction
of the arrow for power on/off.
Slide in the direction of the arrow to
lock the button functions.

If that fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
