The symbol that looks like a cylinder indicates that the hard drive has failed, and will need replaced. Replacing the hard drive will fix your problem.

My acer is not coming on ,there is power going into my lap top but the screen is completly blank?


Bring your laptop under sunlight. If you look very closely and can see your screen then your backlight went out. Otherwise there might be a loose/broken connection to your lcd.

My gateway laptop just beeps when i turn it on , and the screen stays black with a little dash mark at the top , what might the problem be and how can i fix it?


While it is turning on, look at the bottom of the Gateway image. It should say on the side what you can press for "Boot Options". Turn it off and back on again and hit that button (usually F11 or F12) repeatedly. When the menu shows up, select "Hard Drive" from the list. If "Hard Drive" isn't listed or doesn't work, there may be something wrong with your hard drive or it may be as simple as it slid out of its connector. You can try flipping your laptop over, unscrewing the compartment that has a symbol that looks like a cylinder, sliding the hard drive out, and back in.

I have a Sony VGN-CR220E. It would turn on but all I see is a black screen. The green light on the bottom lights up but all the rest won't light up anymore especially the 3rd light that would blink,...


One thing to try is if you can, connect an external monitor to the computer. Turn it off and then back on with the external monitor on. If video on the external monitor then the problem is with the laptop monitor most likely the FL inverter or the lcd itself. If no external video, it is most likely a motherboard problem.

My wireless wont turn on or connect every other computer in ofice connects


There should be a key at the top with a blue symbol that looks like a vertical line with an upside down triangle on top. Hold the Fn (function) key and hit this other symbol. This should turn your wireless adapter on.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

Battery will not charge compaq presario v5000


I would try replacing your ac/adaptor (power plug) before troubleshooting any further. It sounds as if the adaptor is faulty. Check eBay, you can get a replacement for less than 10 dollars.

Amilo XI 1546 wont boot up


it seems that before shutdown system was updating pc (in all cases) windows update does this in silent mode so sometimes youre not to know.
boot up as normal...wiat a minute or so ...press and hold power button until pc shuts down completly(you can hear this) a light should be lit momenterily and then fade off.
you may now be able to reboot.
