Solution 1: Instructions for Performing the Power Discharge Procedure (ATX Reset)

Information:
Your computer has no power at all or cannot boot properly. In some situations this can be caused by an external device or an electrical problem. This can usually be solved by removing all external devices and resetting the power supply.

Instructions for laptops:

1. Disconnect all external devices you have.
2. Unplug the power adapter from the laptop.
3. Remove the battery pack from the laptop.
4. Press the power button and hold it for at least 15 seconds.
5. Reconnect the power adapter.
Do not yet reconnect the external devices, they should stay disconnected. Do not yet reseat the battery pack.
6. Switch your laptop on and test if it boots normally and watch if the power LED lights up.
7. If the power LED still does not lights up, continue with the next steps.
8. Disconnect the power adapter from the laptop.
9. Press the power button and hold it for at least 15 seconds.
10. Reseat the battery pack. Do not reconnect the power adapter.
11. Switch your laptop on and test if it boots normally.
Solution 2: Unplug and reconnect System Hard Drive
1. Unplug the power adapter from the laptop.
2. Remove the battery pack from the laptop.
3. Unplug and reconnect System Hard Drive. This is normally accessible by removing a panel at the bottom of the laptop or removing the back enclosure (see User Manual).
4. Reseat the battery.
5. Switch your notebook on and test if it boots normally

The front of your computer is the Front Panel

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires go to from the Front Panel; is the Front Panel header

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ABIT-Computer-IC7-Socket-478-Intel-Motherboard-w-Pentium-4-3-0-GHz-CPU-/171034074235?pt=Motherboards&hash=item27d26cdc7b

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is on the Bottom/Right corner; and is White it color.

Two rows of contact pins.

(I like the Zoom In feature. Just set your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo to activate it, and then move your mouse cursor around)

Looking at the two rows of pins, you will see there are some missing in the middle.
Essentially can be said as having pins on the Left, and pins on the Right.

It is my belief that the pins on the Left side, are what you want.
Number the pins across the Top row
Let's start at the Left side.
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Now number the pins on the Bottom row, Left side.
Look like there may be four pins, so number from the Left,
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7.

It is my belief that;
Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light
Pin 2 being for the Positive ( + ) wire

Pins 6 and 8 for the Power On switch

Pins 1 and 3 for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
Pin 1 for the Positive ( + ) wire

Pins 5 and 7 for a Reset switch

I think the pins on the Top row/Right side, may be for a speaker.
A lot of times though, these pins are not even used.
One pin may have been a 5 Volt test area for the factory.
Other pins may be for technology that isn't used today, or used readily.
Such as Infrared Remote, and so on.

(Huh! Always thought Infrared was spelled Infared.
Good Ol' spellcheck)

I would SUGGEST, using a 2-wire LED to check my theory.

For additional questions please post in a Comment, or Reply; at end of solution.

How do i use my infared headphones and can i use them on my laptop


You should be able to use infrared headphones with your laptop. You don't give a brand or model, but they're all pretty much the same. The transmitter connects to an audio source (and to a power source as well, so you'll need an AC outlet nearby) with the appropriate cable, and you just put the headphone on and turn on the power. Some headphones take regular batteries, while others have a rechargeable battery like a cordless phone; those are recharged when you hang the headphones back on the transmitter.

The couple of infrared headphone systems I've used both had RCA input jacks. The headphone jack on a laptop takes a 1/8-inch mini-stereo plug, so you'll need an adapter with a regular stereo patch cord (RCA plugs at both ends) or a cable with the right plug on the computer end and RCA plugs at the other. Radio Shack sells both.

If you have questions about your headphones, you can usually find a downloadable manual at the manufacturer's website.

How to install wirless mouse


It depends on the wireless technology used by the mouse.

1. Infrared
If your mouse used Infrared for communicating with your PC, you will have to place an Infrared receiver on your desk, in line with the mouse you want to install. You will definitely have to install the drivers supplied with the mouse/Infrared receiver.

2. Bluetooth
If the mouse uses Bluetooth, first you either will have to install a Bluetooth dongle on your PC/Laptop (if it doesn't have Bluetooth integrated) or activate the Bluetooth on your PC/Laptop. Then, using the Bluetooth software supplied with the dongle or PC/Laptop, search for new devices and choose the mouse to pair with. You may have to install the software provided with the mouse for if to work.

My infrared device is not detected


The infrared device on this laptop is only for HP remote controls or and Windows Media Center Remote. It is not for communication or data transfer. Its like the remote sensor on you TV. It will not show up in your Hardware Manager,

Hope that offers some insight.

If you're running Windows XP with service pack 3, your problem is actually a problem with service pack 3. Microsoft has in fact corrected the problem, so making sure that you've downloaded and installed all the updates will solve the problem. Let me know if this doesn't help, and we'll troubleshoot a little more.

It about mixer device


that is a motherboard problem. The good news is that you can add a sound card to your system and disable the built in sound for relatively low cost.

Can i sync a handspring?


Recent version's of the HOTSYNC app have a provision for IR transfers (older versions may not though). So you should check the HOTSYNC app on the Visor and see if it already has IR transfer abilities. If it does: Use the downarrow to specify the IR transfer on the Visor. Setup HOTSYNC on the computer to accept IR transfers. Line up the ports and tap the HOTSYNC button on the Visor's display. If it doesn't: You may be outta luck. Downloading an updated version of the HOTSYNC app (or some other utility) won't help because you'll need to Sync in order to get the app on the Visor.
