Alarm beeps and orange light flashes when power is switched on.


If you unplug the power cord from the wall and the PSU, then flick the little red voltage switch on the back up and then back down again, plug it back in and it should work again

Acer aspire x1200 cleaned out dust now alarm and no picture?


You may be having issues with the board itself. Or a bad memory chip something is bad in your machine that is not allowing it to run and boot up. Take one memory module at a time out of the computer and turn it back on again if it still beeps on alarm then replace the memory module you took out and do the next one. So on and do forth, do that for the IDE drives SATA drives etc each removable component hopefully the beep with stop and Windows will light up again. If this does not solve the issue the board may be bad. So check each item even the keyboard.
What your doing is isolating anything that could be wrong outside of the board. Also when you get a chance although it may be too late for the Heat Sync Paste board may be burnt. Lets hope not I do know that Acer tends to get hot and get weird and I'm always monitoring my cleaning otherwise mine shuts down periodically letting me know that my machine is getting to hot. John

Pc wont boot up


Try hook up an external monitor (from a desktop pc) to the laptop.
This is just to determine whether the laptop screen is the problem or not.
Then try also,,tapping the F2 key repeatedly as the Laptop is starting up,,will it now enter the Bios on the Screen.
Report back here when you have checked these things.

Dell Optiplex GX280 boot problem


I just repaired two Gateway systems with similar behavior (turn on power, fan runs at full speed, no boot), and both needed replacement system boards. (These were a different model, but the symptoms are typical of a dead system board.) I got the boards from a company called Blue Raven Technology (www.blueraven.com).

Before deciding the main board is bad, try another power supply to make sure that's not the problem. Also you might try clearing the CMOS memory on the system board (either by moving a jumper usually found near the backup battery, or by removing the battery itself). Sometimes corrupted CMOS data will keep the system from booting.

Alarm goes off when it starts up


The alarm is a BIOS alarm. It is warning you of either a cooling fan failure or the processor getting too hot. Either way, you need to fix the problem, not just ignore it!

I would check that all the fans are running correctly and would also recommend that you give the insides of your computer case a clean out - you'll be amazed at how much dust can build up in there! This may well cure the problem.

If it is a processor temperature alarm, rather than turning it off, you may want to adjust it so it doesn't sound until a higher temp. is reached. You can adjust this from the BIOS screen, but I would check the maximum temp. that your processor is designed to run at before doing so.

To get to the BIOS screen to turn it off, press the delete key (repeatedly) while the machine is booting.

I can't tell you exactly when to find it in the BIOS, as this can vary from one computer to the next. Just navigate you way around until you find the relevant section.

**** WARNING ****

Changing settings in the BIOS can affect the computers performance, prevent it from starting, or even cause permanent damage to hardware. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, I wouldn't recommend changing things!

Hope this helps,

Matt
