Why my desk top computer no sound no picture complete dead

Make sure you are getting power to the receptacle, a circuit breaker may have popped. If you have a surge protector then push the reset button. If you have power to the receptacle, then insert windows cd in tray before turning it on, then select boot from cd then hit enter. This will often recover the boot sequence and load the desktop screen. Restart the computer without the cd and see if the desktop comes up. Good luck, had to do this to a desktop unit running Windows XP.

My apple 13" laptop not

I would try a SMC reset first, if that doesn't work for you, a PRAM reset might as well.

To perform a SMC reset, remove the battery from the unit, and remove th e mag safe adapter. now when there is no power going to the unit, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. replace battery, and power and try to start the unit.

To perform a PRAM reset, turn the unit on, as soon as it turns on (before the apple logo pops up) press and hold "CMD" + "Opt"+ "P" + "R". Continue to hold until you hear the unit "chime" 3 to 4 times. then let go and see if it boots up.

Now if these help, then great, your in business, but if you leave it for a while on, and all you see is a folder with a "?", then you most likely have a dead Hard Drive.

After you have installed the unit shut everything down. By shut it down I mean remove all power. This includes the computer. leave all power removed from unit(s) 1 minute. When powering back up power up cable modem first if you have one. Wait for unit to completely boot up. Next power up the wireles router. Once again wait for it to boot completely. Lastly boot your computer. Hope this helps.

My Palm tungsten E2 hand held PDA is totally frozen and locked up

Best thing to do here is to remove any memory cards etc.. and do a hard reset - seems like soft reset will or has not worked...

Press and hold the power button - keep it pressed and gently press the reset button on the back of the handheld.
Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear and release the power button.
You should get a message warning about erasing all data. Press up on your 5-way navigator to reset.

This will erase all data inlcuding user information from the device, but synchronizing should get it all back - but you will loose anything that was not recently sync'd

good luck

Screen is stuck

Did you try to remove the chip yet?, sometimes that helps, and re boots the system?

Failing that, try to remove the battery, to enable the unit to completely power-down. Then refit, and try again.

There is a reset function, but i am assuming you are unable to access that if the screen is frozen.

I have listed how to remove the battery on another post on here.

Good Luck

Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop Won't Boot Up

The laptop won’t POST after removing the memory? Sounds like the memory module (s) need to be reseated again. Removing memory will not reset the laptop. If you want to install a clean Windows XP load, you need to boot from the Windows CD and format the hard drive.
Fell free to contact me if you need futher assistance.

Soft Reset erases everything

Hi, i remember reading somwhere that if you hold the soft reset button too long you will deactivate the battery. You can reactivate it by inserting the PDA into the cradle. Hope this helps.
