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 the DSC and another round symbol on the dash of my E46 on they wont go off, whats the prob pls?


The DSC shows a problem with traction control. The round symbol (looks like a gear) shows a problem with transmission. If you turn the ignition completely off & back on they should reset if not you should take the car for a diagnostic.

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

Regards
Shauqat

Some sweat fell on the wheel and the ipod turned off. when i tried to charge it it got very hot it still wont turn on


Hi,
Did the ipod show any symbol while it was on charge. Sometimes, the atmospheric temperature & humidity of surrounding area makes the device hot even after a few minutes of charge. if this is the case then
1. Remove any jacket/covering/sleeve of your ipod. 2. Connect to power outlet or usb for charging however make sure it is as far away from pc/laptop as possible and in a breezy area. 3. Charge for 15 minutes. 4. Hold down the menu and middle button for 30 seconds until the apple symbol appears.
In case there is a problem with internal circuitry, the ipod will show one of its distress symbols.

you mean icons my friend. your harddrive may be failing, When you turn on the PS3 the harddrives parttion sector is read ...this is where info for your desktop and icons is kept. if your hardrive has bad sectors it will result in an erratic mannner such as what you are describing. goto a local gamestop or friend and get another harddrive. insert it into your ps3 and see if that works...but remember all info get deleted of the hardrive
