Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I got this set of computers from one of my friends as he was leaving the country. When i brought it to my house none of the PCs were working. Itook out all the powerboxes and tested them individually and they were working fine. The problem is when i trying switching on the computers they show no signs of life. Niether the cpu fan nor any lights switch on. I have tried switching the cables of the power button to other points on the fornt panel headers but that doesn't help at all. And also on the front panel the brand only says the product is for Orange company, nothing else.

    Not trying to be smart, how do you know the Power Supply's are good? What method of testing did you use? 12 volt power rail, (Yellow wire), shows at least 11 Volts? 5 Volt power rail shows at least 4.5 Volts? (Red wire) 3.3 Volt power rail shows at least 3 Volts? (Orange wire) Have you used a jumper wire on the ATX main power cable's connector, to bypass the Power On switch, to see if it, (They), is at fault? (Green wire {Soft Power On} to ANY Black wire. {Ground) have you used a jumper on the Front Panel header pins to see if you can find the Power On switch pins? Post back in a Comment.

1995 jeep wrangler wont go in gear

Actually, in some cases, the transmission may have a problem shifting only sometimes, if your TPS, VSS, or any solenoid on the transmission is going bad. an intermittent problem could be the case; and sometimes, it's just a loose wire.

Power won't come on at all for our air conditioner on our 2002 Town and Country Van. It was working a minute ago????? The fuses all seem fine.

Try unhooking one of the battery cables and leave it off for at least 20 minutes. When you hook it back up the computers should re-boot. That has solved problems for me with heater, interior lites, power windows, AC, day time running lites, power mirrors, CD player, and wipers on GM autos and S-10 PU and Dodge trucks. None of the switches are connected to the device they control anymore. The switch tells the computer to open the window and the computer send a signal to the window motor. When the computer gets confused strange things will happen or not happen. Of course you may have to re-set your radio stations.

Maxtor 120gig unable to open.

Try inserting your Maxor into the computer and then REBOOTING. Chances are, they will show up after the reboot (assuming the correct drivers are present). Some USB devices are not totally plug and play. I had the same problme at work last year until I figured out this trick.
