Hi!

Im sorry to inform you that the motherboard on your computer needs to be replaced. If the ac adapter light turns on if not plugged into the system and when you do plug it in, it dims or flashes, that's a right out symptom that the motherboard needs to be replaced. Do you still have warranty for that system? if you do, call Dell Tech Support and have them replace it. If the warranty is already expired, please call Dell at 1-800-2884410 for an estimate on how much it would cost you to have the motherboard replaced. Usually would be around $400 - $500 and 5-8 business days. Unfortunately, you have to ship the system back to Dell for that repair.

Hope you find this solution helpful and informative.

Thanks,

Karlox™ :)

87virago1100cc wont kick over seems like a relay or switch cause it wont even click


Do any lights come on when the key is turned? Are you you sure there is power from the battery? If yes then what happens when the start button is pressed? Do the lights dim at all? Even without a click noise if the button is supplying power to the solinoid the oil check/dummy lights should dim slightly. If no dimming but the lights are on when the key is turned, start by checking the starter button, if there is no power there trace your way back to the battery with a voltmeter until you find where the power stops.

Desktop: Gateway LX6810-01 PC will not power on. When I hit the Power button on the tower, a long continuous BEEP comes on and nothing appears on the monitor. After the BEEP, the On light (on tower)...


Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Tower problems


You may need to replace the cmos battery, its a cr2032 3v button cell
Make sure all your expansion cards and memory are reseated.
Make sure all cables are reseated.
your power supply could be bad

If that doesn't work try this


Here is my fix for the dell dimension 4400 amber light problem. It works!
replace cmos battery.
then unplug power cord form wall about 5-10 secs.
then plug it back in, wait 5 secs.
If amber light comes on, press and hold power button until it goes out.

(with light out, press and hold power button while amber light comes on and goes off again holding power button 2-3 secs after light goes out.) repeat whats in parenthesis until computer turns on
it should only take about 6, 7 tries.

After the computer boots, you may want to setup cmos or boot into windows.
After you shutdown, unplug power cord for 5-10 secs then plug it back in.
Press and hold the power button, computer should come on.
I found that's the only way to turn on the computer.
If you shutdown and don't unplug power cord the computer may not boot, mine didn't.
Strange I'd say

Dell b130 will not stay on unless it is plugged into the wall


The battery may be bad or the charging mechanism of the battery area. OR you may have some undocked (battery run setting) that is dimming the screen or turning off the monitor when you are running on battery where you think it is off but the screen needs to be lightened or powered on.
I would first take a look at your Power Settings in the control panel and see what they are set to.

Brand new router works sometimes


Hi,

the wall plug type power supply (made in China) may be likely bad.
This actually is a switch mode power supply very unlike the old and usual linear power supplies.
It is common the capacitors used in this supply are under rated and do not last very long.

The problem usually seen with dim LED lights on the unit, limited range and intermittent operation.

Try to find a replacement power supply with perhaps higher current rating.

Good luck
