    okay i will try and clean it. also when i turn the pc on TWO of the LEDs light up

  • Bean13 Jun 14, 2008

    Well the last time it started running it lasted for 2 weeks being turned off at night and on at 4 o clock-ish on most days. Also the LEDs are on solid but Im not sure wether they are just for decoration. I tried to get in to the pc to clean the fan but am struggling to get the pc casing off.. Also i dont know wether this could be a problem with dust on the inside of the pc. Thanks for the help so far.

    Hey thanks for all your help Mike. I have some great news. All i did was clean out the fan a little and left the pc overnight and now it is working again and yes the green red and amber lights are on. So i guess the fan may have been spinning too slow and maybe over heating the computer? All I know is it is working again and thanks for the help.

Try cleaning out the PC. Clean the CPU fan, remove all dust build up within the case. Canned air helps a lot. Blow out the power supply too. When you are able to power up the PC, do you see the case LED's light up / flashing?
I'm keeping in mind that when you loose the video display you also loose the use of the PS2 keyboard & PS2 mouse. If the CPU is over heating the system will shut down the PC.
If you're system is still under warranty, please call Fujitsu.

You may need a new power supply, CPU or board. Sorry!

Good luck!

    Also the last time is did function, how long did it run? Do you recall the first time the PC started to screw up? had you possible installed any new hardware or software?

    The inside of a PC in no different than the screen on a TV. It attracts dust & dirt. Most PC's have four screws on the back side of the case. While looking at the front of the case, you want to remove the left side panel. If there are no screws there can be a small lever that slides up or down when pushed. At the same time you push that lever you would use the palm of your hand & push the side panel towards the rear of the PC to remove. Still other cases may have a similar latch located on the bottom of the PC. Bottom latches release the side panel outwards & not to the rear. If you have you're manual it should show how to get into the PC case. Every PC should be cleanned once every 4 to six months. The LED's I am talking about are located right next to the crom drive, floppy drive & near the power on & reset buttons. I see the Scaleo has three LED's at the front bottom. They are not the LED's I'm talking about. (Green, Amber & Red LED's).

    May I suggest swapping out you're power supply. To do this, you will have to get the case opened.

I have HCL Ezeebee desktop computer when we boot the system monitor, keyboard, mouse blink for a while and monitor (HCL) show 'no signal' message, and keyboard num lock led not display mouse i


No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard.
you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged.
I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Acer desktop mouse,keyboard not functioning, monitor also not wor


If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor.
This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too.
If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time.
If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.

Flatscreen monitor


Solution: The following is monitor troubleshooting. If your monitor receives a proper display until it gets into Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP please refer to document CH000192.
Monitor is not on Make sure the monitor is on. If no power light (green or orange light) is seen on the monitor display try pressing the power button until it comes on. If no light comes on after several attempts continue to below connections not connected properly.
Computer is asleep If your computer monitor was on and you stepped away from the computer and upon returning it was black it's likely that the computer is asleep. Try moving your mouse, clicking the mouse buttons, and/or pressing any key (space bar) on the keyboard to wake it up.
Connections not connected properly Make sure that you are connecting the monitor to the back of the computer in the 15 pin (illustrated below) or older computer 9 pin connection.
video.gif If the computer is properly plugged in, make sure it's getting getting power.
If you are not receiving power from a known working wall outlet and if the power cord is removable, replace it with the one connected to the computer and attempt to power on the monitor again. If the monitor still does not get power or it is not removable, it is recommended that the monitor be replaced or serviced at a local TV / Computer repair shop.
If the monitor is receiving power, check the status light.
If the light is orange or flashing ensure that the monitor is not in a suspend mode by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard. If the computer does not get a display by moving the mouse or touching the keyboard, turn off the computer and monitor and reconnect the data cable from the back of the computer, and if removable, the back of the monitor. Turn the computer back on; if you still encounter the same issue, continue reading through the other possibilities.
Monitor settings are not correct Ensure that the brightness and contrast is turned up or attempt to adjust the brightness and contrast. If adjusting the brightness or contrast has no affect on the monitor continue reading through the other possibility.
Does the computer beep when it is powered on and/or does it appear that the computer has activity? If the computer does not beep or beeps abnormally it is possible that the computer itself is experiencing a hardware issue or is exhibiting .
