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.

Can not get the mac pro osx 10 5 8 to start with the utility disk or with regular start up my on pilot lite keeps blinking


Put the Mac install disk back in. Try pressing command-option-escape to force quit. If nothing happens, then press command-control-power to force a restart. If that doesn't work, press and hold the power button for five seconds or so until the computer shuts down. Power up the computer again, and hold the option key so you can select the instal disc for startup. Run Disk Utility again. Sometimes you get a tangled file reference that requires several tries to undo - this could be calling the sleep routine instead of what it's supposed to do.

I have a 97 dodge stratus. It won't start. Tried


Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

2004 mazda mpv engine racing and cooling fan not working


coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

2004 chrysler pacific will start sometimes but sometimes won't


I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

The battery on my laptop stopped charging, but was working for a over a week, then it was acting funny and slow.. I shut down moved to another room and it won't boot up! The light doesn't come on...


I think your power cord is bad. It probably was not charging the battery at all and so now all your battery power has drained since you were running on it. Once the battery power is drained and if the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working the computer will not boot because it has no power source.

Some AC Adapter & Power Cords have lights on them to let you know when it is plugged in if it is working. Normally when you plug the power cord in the laptop somewhere on the laptop lights up to let you know it is receiving power. Sometimes the light is where you plug it in, sometimes at the front of the laptop or right above the keyboard area.

I thing you need a power cord. And don't settle for one of the one size fits all (with a removable tip designed to fit any laptop) that the big box stores will sell you.

If your power cord is good and the laptop is not receiving power then the problem could be your DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the computer.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

My 2001 Chevy Suburban won't start at times. I remove the cables from the battery and put them back on at it will start sometimes. Other times it requires a jump. It's random. I also noticed...


your battery is being drained ,, check the plug in for the towing light hook up , something is shorted across ,, clean and tighten all connections to the battery ,, once the vehicle is running,, check the posts with a meter, you should get a reading of 13.5-14.5 volts, if not your alternator isn't doing its job

Mitsubishi Eclipes 1999. runs good then quits going down the road. Scanner says cam sensor most often, sometimes crank sensor. Sometimes it says speed sensor. (when this started, the speed odometer...


Since you have multiple codes, I would check the wiring harness at the ECM. If you can get your hands on a pin out sheet for the ECM it would help emincely. Sounds like you are loosing power or ground at the ECM. This could be from the pins loosing contact or a wire could be broken. I have found wires that were broke inside the rubber coating. some days they work, some days they don't.
Repair as necessary. And for the pins you can pull the plug and use a paper clip or something small and push the female pins together alittle, it doesn't take much. Usually when I do the push the pins together, I just do them all, better safe than sorry.

I have a 2003 focus zx3 and sometimes it won't


To be able to help you, we need to know what the error codes your system is putting out. DON'T disconnect the battery until codes are read. You can take it to most chain store auto parts houses and they will read the codes for you - MAKE SURE YOU WRITE DOWN EACH ONE IN THE ORDER THAT THEY COME OUT! And then we can help you a little bit better,

Or you can take it to a shop that has a diagnostic computer and for about 100 bucks they can pin point your problem and give you an estimate for repairs.

How do I install CNM Core 120GB portable Hard Drive USB2 0 on my laptop?


The hard drive is plug and play, no software is required. All you have to do is plug the hard drive into a USB slot. If it doesn't work then you know the hard drive is bad and you would have to get another one.
