Hello,

Sounds like your Power On or Reset button may be stuck or failing. Short of that it sounds like your Power Supply at the top back of the PC has failed. You can have it replaced at a qualified repair shop or technician. You can check for one from our home page or if you have one you trust use them. Otherwise, you can ask your friends or call your local Chamber of Commerce.

A replacement Power Supply will run from 29.99 to 99.99 depending on your power needs. Labor will run $35 to $65 depending on where you live.

Sorry to give you such bad news.

Regards,
Worldvet

ps If you would and feel qualified to do this on your own Ask Me and I'll get you started.

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up (and power switch does nothing!)


Bad setting. If you press and hold the power button, the computer will shut off. That will keep you from having to unplug it.

Computer not reading


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Unplugged computer plugged back up loud humming


The humming could be coming from one of the fans or the disk drive. Sometimes if you just tap the case the humming will quit. If there is a CD in the cd drive sometimes it will hum.

Don't worry about the humming, if it starts clicking, that's when you worry.

No power , computer will not turn on


Hi, IF the system is not turning on any more, try removing the power cable, then press the power button for 10 seconds. then try to power it on again . If it is still not powering up there could be an issue wiht the power supply of the computer. But if it start to turn on, like showing the Sony logo then windows but not going to the desktop. you can try to log on using safemode. you can go there by pressing F8 on the keyboard after turning on the computer. If it still not turning on even on safe mode. there couldbe an issue with the operating system of the computer and needs to be reinstalled.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

There is a screeching sound coming from acer aspire 4738Z we can hear our own voice when the headphones are put on and when we take the headphones off the sound starts coming again sometimes it stops on...


LOL you hear feedback noise, it's feedback! Go into the sound settings and in the mixer for audio output, mute MIC. (the built-in microphone for webcam conferencing, evidently.) Don't worry that it will keep you from using the mic (pron. 'mike') in the input mixer, because that's a whole other section of the 'board'.

It could of course also be some other app doing the ill-filtered mixing, but see the mixer settings first.

My laptop does not turn on.. when i press the on button you can see the light on the button go on and here like it wants to start but it does not. sometimes when i take off the battery and put it back...


Sounds like your battery might be bad/dead. Try plugging it into the wall both with the battery in the laptop and with the battery removed from the laptop. If it works with the battery removed, then the battery needs replaced.

My laptop keeps powering off as soon as it starts up?


Are you getting juice out of the power cord? You could use a multimeter to see that you are getting the rated power out of the brick. Sometimes it is as simple as a plug not making good contact.Find a voltmeter and test if the adapter puts out any power at all. Make sure the RAM is properly seated, unplug every peripheral (even the cd/dvdrom drive), power it up on direct electric power. Check if you can get into the BIOS (F2, or F10, or delete, or some random key depending on the manufacturer, that you press when you power up).

Most laptops have a little light showing that they are recharging when plugged in properly. Is there a green LED light? Alternatively, I had an old laptop where the brick had a removable power cord and one of the prongs in the adapter where the power cord plugged into the brick would sometimes get pushed in and fail to make contact. Once I had that plugged in properly, I never unplugged it again.

If it fails when trying to boot windows, you could always try to download and burn an ubuntu live-cd and boot from the CD to see if the problem is really your software.
