My Optavision 9500 HD light will not come on when power up, it is not even a year old and doesn't get used often. So what does anyone suggest?


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My casio te-2400 is stuck on X and even though the key turns, the Mode doesn't. Any help is much appreciated!


Typically a faulty mode lock or liquid damage in the keyboard. Never needed a reset of any kind to clear it. Hardware problem.

Green power supply light is flashing so power is getting to the computer, however the computer will not start from start button. Have removed case and tried ***** start button. Didn't work. Comput


Power getting to the computer/Power Supply?
Yeah.

Power Supply good? -> NO

A) IF ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

Can use up to 89 Watts of power.

Your Power Supply doesn't even have enough power to spin fans, much less start the Processor.

Want to test the Power Supply? Have a multimeter?
No? Have a power supply you can borrow for a test unit?

Computer not powering on. green light is on behind tower though. what can it be?


Could possibly be your power supply. unplug the computer and take out the ram and put them back in. If that doesn't work, get a new power supply.

My desktop suddenly suspended, switched it off by pressing the power button. Now it does not boot, the screen stays dark, though power lights on the PC and keyboard are on. What should I do?


You are the owner of a desktop PC that has developed a sudden and catastrophic hardware
fault - probably on the motherboard (since even the ROM BIOS doesn't give evidence of its
existence), but possibly in the power supply.

Desktop PC power supplies are (relatively) easily replaceable, so if you have as many spare
power supplies lying around as I do, try replacing that first - if that doesn't fix the system, then
the problem is on the motherboard.

Since your power supply is alive enough to light the power LEDs on the system unit tower and
also the keyboard, the problem is probably on the motherboard - look at it - there may be an obviously burned visible component - but there usually is no visible sign of the fatal failure.

The reason I do not suspect your HDD (hard disk drive) has crashed is that ROM BIOS
executes at (power start) boot time right out of motherboard-mounted ROM, independent of
whether or not the HDD is functional - and since not even the BIOS message appears on your monitor, I therefore know that the boot sequence has been interrupted long before the computer becomes intelligent enough to find and access a disk drive, and then command it to try to find a
boot sector.

How to fix the computer: isolate the boot problem to the motherboard. Replace motherboard.

Computer goes to sleep before it even starts up


Hi there, it appears as though the Power Options are set too short a time and the PC is going into sleep mode. Go to Start menu/Control Panel and look for Power options. Set them all to "never" This will prevent her PC from going into sleep mode. Good Luck.

My computer when in 115v it turns on and then immediately off


Switch the power button on the rear of the supply back to 115V.
Have someone remove the supply and replace with the same.
Sometime, just disconnecting the supply connections at the motherboard and re-connecting them, resets the supply.
I would go that rout first and go from their.

Light on monitor is green when turned on, but then turns orange with nothing on the screen. I can hear the computer running though.


your monitor is not recieving a video signal from your pc. check your connection to pc, then check things like bad memory card, etc. sometimes just shut pc on and off a few times clears this up.
