If it doesn't work, since it's damage you'll probably have to get new USB ports. if you arent using a compaq with the Creativity Action Center, this means you have to get a new motherboard. Try some simple troubleshooting first, though

Sounds like a faulty DVD burner. If the rails that the laser slides backwards and forwards on are dirty or the grease has dried out then it cant slide smoothly. It may be sticking when it's writing the data to disk and you don't get a good clean write.

You could also try changing to a different brand of DVD's.
Also change the program you use to burn.

When i start my dell optiplex 330 pc, the power light will be blinking orange and all the fans on the pc do not work but the orange led on the motherboard works. It was running ok until I shift the RAM...

Youve burned something, You may have shocked your motherboard and burned it out. You don't need to see burn marks to fry it. or the ram stick is no longer good. try this, take out your ram stick, and the big watch battery along the wall, carefully not to touch anything else.. pull that out while off for 10 seconds, then re put it in. but it seems like somethings burned.. ive done that once, it was the ram stick, the other time i straight shocked the computer.. but try the bios thing, its a stretch but a possible jumpstart..

You hear my hp 490n media start up. the fan start then it read it shuting down to protect my files

This could be several things, from your desciption.

First disconnect every accessorie you have to reduce the load on your power supply.

Then start it and see if it boots ok, if soo you may need a new or bigger Power supply.

If not then try pulling all the memory form it and put just one stick of memory in and try to boot then, if you get the same error then try another stick if this does not work.

download Hiren's boot CD and burn it to a cd, place it in the CD drive change your boot options to boot from CD first. then boot.

If hiren's boots then use the disk drive diagnosis software and find out if there is a problem with your HD.

Good luck

Fujitsu Seimens Laptop V2030. I have removed the 2030 disk shaped cmos back up battery placed under sticky tape and replaced with new. The computer will now not boot up. I have power to the fan but no...

changing this shouldn't cause or harm it at all. except if you change it the wrong way it could burn the bios chip's internal blocks.

1. remove the battery, + big battery + ac charger
and wait 15 minutes, then boot.

2. try booting without the cmos battery

3. try swapping the memory

why did u change it in the first place?

Memory stick reader

It sounds like to me that either the slot is damaged, dirty or you may have the wrong kind of media for that slot. If you have a can of dust off (compressed air) you may want to blow out the dust in the slot. After doing this, try your memory stick again. If it still doesn't work but it has in the past for that slot you may want to consider replacing the card reader. Sometimes the pins get dislodged or bent inside. Good luck, let me know how it turns out. Thanks...

Kt600 with 2, 1GB 3200 ddr ram sticks won't let win xp install, but with 1gb 3200 ddr ram, win xp installs

First put the stick you are having issues with in a different slot; If it still does not work download memtest86 and burn it to a cd and run it with only the RAM stick you are having issues with. Here is a link to the program

I can't get into the BIOS settings

You should be able to get into the BIOS on a Compaq PC by tapping F1 as your turn on the computer. From there, you can reorganize the boot devices. Press the right arrow to select Boot. Press the down arrow key to select the CD-ROM. Press the + (plus) key to move the CD-ROM up until it is the first item in the list.

For the RAM issue, If you have 2 or more RAM sticks in your PC, pull one, boot, and if everything works, then the pulled stick is bad RAM. If not, replace stick #1 and pull stick #2, etc.
In general, make sure that your RAM is seated properly and locked into place, and that you discharge any static electricity before getting close to the RAM/MoBo, etc. (I usually touch the Power Supply Unit PSU as soon as I open the case to discharge through the ground on the power cable - keep it plugged it).
If you can't get anything to work, see if you can boot up with a live Linux CD or USB. I personally use Backtrack 3
But systemrescuecd is pretty much the standard:
Use imgburn to burn the downloaded .iso file.
I have recovered data from dozens of 'fried' PCs with Live Linux CDs - much better than paying geek squad a few hundred bucks to do the same thing. It'll also help you verify hardware issues (ie, if the RAM gives you trouble in both XP and Linux, then it's a hardware issue, not a software issue).
Hope this helps!
