Model mgh-055 furnace. Why won't it light?


Pushing down the button causes enough gas to be fed to the pilot to allow it to be lit and remain burning. If nothing happened, the gas valve could be at fault.

HP 2000-410US when turned on the power light button blinks 1 time every 5 seconds, nothing elas


1. Disconnect anything that is connected to your laptop. Usb Flash discs, External HDDs, Wireless Devices using dongles etc.
2. Make sure that your device does not receive any power i.e. Disconnect your ac cable, and remove battery from your laptop.
3. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds. This would drain remaining power from your laptop. But as the power cable and the battery are disconnected, you should not expect anything to happen.
4. Identify where your RAM is located under your laptop. Unscrew the cover off, then remove the RAM from your laptop. Replace the cover temporarily.
5. Flip over your laptop. Connect your power cable to the laptop, NOT THE BATTERY NEH! Then press the power button. Sometimes your laptop will make long beeps to let you know the RAM is not inserted in your laptop. But nothing will happen on your monitor because it needs RAM to show you something.
6. After those beeps, remove the power cable. Press the Power Button to drain remaining power on your laptop. Flip the Laptop and replace the RAM you have removed earlier.
7. Insert your power cable and try restarting your laptop and see what happens. I am sure by now you should have some response on your laptop monitor.

NB: While performing the above mentioned, remember PC or Laptop parts are delicate. Even static electricity can damage them. Thus before handling your laptop components, make sure you touch the wall or any large metal subject from time to time to discharge the static. Wear 100% cotton cloths as you are working on it. Bare feet even better to discharge the static

My GX520 was shut down as usual last night...I turned on this morning and I get nothing...just a little yellow/amber light blinking where it is normally green....help


Here is the info straight from Dell. looks like you have an internal power issue. You will most likely need to contact Dell directly for assistance, they are pretty good about giving support even if the system is no longer covered under warranty.

If the power light is blinking amber -
The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Amber colored power light on eMachine W3503


The amber power light indicates that your computer has been "sleeping" or "hibernating" and usually all it takes to restart the computer is tapping a key on the keyboard. If this is not the case, try holding the Power switch down for 6-10 seconds to force the system off. Restart in Safe Mode and try to find the settings for Sleep/hibernate, open the control panel and open the Screen Saver. Select "Change Power Settings" and set it for "Never" on sleep and hybernate.
