What would cause computer not to turn on when the power is loaded and the screen to stay black?


Im sorry about your situation.

Does the computer turn on??
If the computer turns on do you hear or can you see the fan working??

If the computer turns on does it stay on or does it shut down after a few minutes??

This will help us determine what is going on.

I cannot get my thermostat althc014 to turn down by its self when room tempreature is reached


How To
Set The Temperature


The reason the stat is coming on during the night/ always
being on is setting number 5, there are 5 settings on the Salus

1
is the time you want heating on eg, 07.00 and set the temp (20)

2
is the time you want it to go off eg, 10.00 and set the temp (10 this
will turn it off)

3 is the time to come on an evening eg. 17.00
and set the temp (20)

4 is the time you want it to go off eg,
23.00 and set the temp (10 this will turn it off)

5 the problem
many people have is that they do not set number 5 correctly, this is a
night/ frost stat and if you don't set the time and temperature same as 4
ie, 23.00 and 10*c then the heating will stay on.

Dell Inspiron 530 won't start, CMOS


Sounds like the CMOS battery is dead. You will find this battery on the mother board. It is a round watch battery, pull it and take it to a store like Walmart to get a proper replacement. I bet if you check your system time, it is wrong too.

When I am on line for about twenty to thirty minutes, my monitor goes black and then eventually the computer shuts down, what causes this?? When I reboot, the computer stays on forever


Check for the following settings:
1. Power saving feature
2. Is the system configured for sleep or hibernate?
3. Try restoring the system back to factory defaults (backup the files you need to keep first)

Note: Try to include the following information every time you request for support for your computer:
1. Brand Name (Acer, Dell, HP, IBM etc.)
2. Operating System (XP, Vista, Linux, MacOS, etc.)
3. Any recent changes made (installations, updates, upgrades, etc)
4. Any error mesages?

I have an HP Pavilion a384x. It will not turn on


First with the computer turned off make sure the switch on the power supply is set to 115v.

If you turn the computer back on and you still get a flashing green light on the back of the power supply and a constant light on the front of the computer with no video, then try replacing the power supply with either a new one or a known working good one.

If that doesn't do it then it has to be the motherboard at that point.

Keep in mind normally on those power supplies, the green light should be constant. So it has to be either the power supply is bad or the moterboard is bad and you'll know when you put a new or known good working power supply in the computer.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode


Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.
