Two possibilities-

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

With this kind of battery, it is possible to insert one or both of the batteries the wrong way around. There should be a little +/- graphic or picture of a battery on the compartment to show you which way each battery goes.

You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH rechargeables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task, and they can leak and cause corrosion.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.

Make sure the battery is designed for a Digital camera. Although it is AA, it may not have enough voltage to power a digital camera - these types of batteries have a little more voltage. Also, make sure the batteries are seated in the battery compartment correctly - observe polarity + and - .

Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.
They are either copper tin or gold.
The colour will tell you which they are.

Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.
Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.
Reseat the memory modules.
You should hear an audible click when they are in place.

I have an HP desktop computer. I got a usb power overload message and now it won't even boot up. Is there any way to fix it?


What happens when you try to boot up now?
When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Is it possible to charge my olympus fe-46 from my computer?


In a convoluted way. The FE-46 uses standard AA batteries. You may use either disposable alkaline or lithium batteries, or rechargeables. If you use rechargeables then you must charge them outside the camera. There are chargers that run from a computer USB port, and there are even AA batteries that plug into a USB port. However, you canNOT charge the batteries by connecting your camera to your computer.

My camera won't stay on. Has a Internal memory full message.


This sounds like that you need to delete some images on your camera memory. You can try hooking the camera up to your computer and downloading the pictures to your computer or removing the memory card and using another memory card. You were not specific on what camera you have so some of my suggestions my not apply to your camera. Regarding the power problem try to replace the batteries if it uses conventional AA with digital AA batteries. Not all AA batteries are made the same because digital cameras require a lot of power If it uses rechargeable battery then try to recharge the battery.

Good Luck

Wheres the slot for a memory card in the computer ?


These PC's don't come with the slot for a memory card, they only have slots for usb ports. The best thing you can do is connect the device(camera) to the computer via usb cord, or take the memory card to a photo center(Wal-mart) to look at or print the pictures.

Motherboard diagram


A Computer Motherboard Diagram motherboard-diagram-01.jpg Once you know what you are looking at, you can recognize the components on any motherboard layout. A computer motherboard diagram is very useful for when you need to replace motherboard, do motherboard upgrades, troubleshoot motherboard, or build your own computer.
  1. PCI Slot - This board has 2 PCI slots. These can be used for components such as Ethernet cards, sound cards, and modems.
  2. PCI-E 16x Slot - There are 2 of them on this motherboard diagram, both are blue. These are used for your graphics card. With two of them onboard, you can run 2 graphics cards in SLI. You would only need this if you are a gamer, or working with high end video / graphics editing. These are the 16x speed versions, which are currently the fastest.
  3. PCI-E 1x Slot - Single slot - In the PCIe 1.x generation, each lane (1x) carries 250 MB/s compared to 133 MB/s for the PCI slots. These can be used for expansion cards such as Sound Cards, or Ethernet Cards.
  4. Northbridge - This is the Northbridge for this motherboard. This allows communication between the CPU and the system memory and PCI-E slots.
  5. ATX 12V 2X and 4 Pin Power Connection Power Connection - This is one of two power connections that supply power to the motherboard. This connection will come from your Power Supply.
  6. CPU-Fan Connection - This is where your CPU fan will connect. Using this connection over one from your power supply will allow the motherboard to control the speed of your fan, based on the CPU temperature.
  7. Socket - This is where your CPU will plug in. The orange bracket that is surrounding it is used for high end heat sinks. It helps to support the weight of the heat sink.
  8. Memory Slots - These are the slots for your RAM. Most boards will have 4 slots, but some will only have 2. The color coding you see on the motherboard diagram is used to match up RAM for Dual-Channel. Using them this way will give your memory a speed boost.
  9. ATX Power Connector - This is the second of two power connections. This is the main power connection for the motherboard, and comes from the Power Supply.
  10. IDE Connection - The IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) is the connection for your hard drive or CD / DVD drive. Most drives today come with SATA connections, so you may not use this.
  11. Southbridge - This is the controller for components such as the PCI slots, onboard audio, and USB connections.
  12. SATA Connections - These are 4 of the 6 SATA connections on the motherboard. These will be used for hard drives, and CD / DVD drives.
  13. Front Panel Connections - this is where you will hook in the connections from your case. These are mostly the different lights on your case, such as power on, hard drive activity etc.
  14. FDD Connection - The FDD is the Floppy Disk controller. If you have a floppy disk drive in your computer, this is where you will hook it up.
  15. External USB Connections - This is where you will plug in external USB connections for your case or USB bracket.
  16. CMOS battery - This is the motherboard's battery. This is used to allow the CMOS to keep its settings.

Blank screen on laptop


Sorry to hear you are having problems. I have had this same issue before with this particular model. The following solution works 90% of the time.Perform a hard reset as the first procedure.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds .
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not connect the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a disk drive and fan turning.
Meaning of Sample Blink Codes for some EFI Notebooks Number of Blinks or Beeps Location of Blinking LEDs Component Being Checked Error Condition Continuous glow Battery power LED Battery The AC adapter is attached and the battery is charging, but does not yet have sufficient charge to power the notebook. 1 Caps Lock/Num Lock CPU CPU not functional 2 Caps Lock/Num Lock BIOS BIOS corruption failure 3 Caps Lock/Num Lock Memory Module error not functional 4 Caps Lock/Num Lock Graphics Graphics controller not functional 5 Caps Lock/Num Lock System board General system board failure 6 Caps Lock/Num Lock BIOS BIOS authentication failure Continuous blink AC power adapter LED Power adapter Insufficient power
Blink codes are often displayed after a user adds memory to the computer but does not seat the module properly. The LEDs may also blink error codes if a hardware component is loose because the computer was dropped or jarred. Some HP Notebook PCs come with one stick of memory but have two memory slots. The problem could be that the stick of memory or one of the memory slots has a bad connection. The memory module compartment on most notebooks is located on the bottom of the case. The exact position varies by model. However, on some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.

Use the following steps to remove and reseat the memory modules: Step 1 - Remove the electrical power To remove all power from the computer and prevent accidental damage to the electronic components, do the following:
  1. Turn off the computer by pressing and holding down the Power button for about 30 seconds.
  2. Unplug the AC adaptor from the notebook.
  3. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  4. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.

  • Remove the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook .Loosen the compartment's retention screws and lift up and remove the memory compartment cover. Remove the memory modules from the memory slots To prevent damage to the memory module, grasp the memory module by the side edges. Do not touch the metal contacts.
    1 - Pull the retention clips away from sides of the memory module
    2 - Gently pull the module out of the memory module slot
  • Reseat the memory module by holding module at a 45-degree angle, and pressing it firmly into the memory slot until it is seated.

    After reseating the memory module, replace the cover over the memory compartment before restarting the computer

    Hope this helps FiYa! If you find this solution helpful, please take a moment to leave us some feedback.

    Thank You!
