System=intel Celeron D W3507 When I turn it on it goes straight to a black screen asking for a system password I've tried every password I know but I can't get in please help

If you don't see windows, then it's a BIOS password, and you would know if you set one. Unplug it and hit the power button, then touch metal, and pull the battery out for ten minutes. After you put the battery back in the motherboard, and plug it in you need to hit delete at start and enter the BIOS to set the time and date, then move over to exit and save changes.

My computer will not come on when i press the power button

Unplug it from the power source for about ten minutes and try it.
Do any light come on?
Does the power supply fan come on?
If no lights, no fan and no hard drive come on, the power supply may be defective.
I hope this helps.
Good luck and have a great day.

I have a HP Pavilion A6403W, when I turn on the monitor the message comes up on the screen VGA input no signal and DVI no signal then it goes to sleep. CAN YOU HELP PLEASE

The monitor is telling you that it's NOT receiving a signal from the video card connected to your computer. Check the cable that goes from Monitor to Computer. Make sure it's secure. If it's secure, I would recommend you re-seating the video card, just make sure you remove power from the computer and you ground yourself. If you are not comfortable doing this, then I would recommend visiting a local mom and pop computer shop and have the technician take a quick look, should only take about 5 minutes for a decent tech to diagnose the cause.

Hope this info helps!

Hi!my computer freezes during setup and cannot continue at the point 34 that is when its left 34 minutes to complete setup please help me with directions to solve this problem thanks

34 minutes is the hardware detection portion of the Windows install. To get around this, boot to BIOS, turn off all integrated devices (Audio, Modem, Network Card, 1394 etc) and remove and expansion cards (Modem NIC etc) and disconnect all external devices except keyboard and mouse. Then try install again.
If system goes past 34 minutes, then you finish the install and add items back one at a time

I have a Dell 2400 it starts up fine but after about ten minutes the light turns from green to yellow and I lose any picture it reminds me of a sleep or hibernation mode but I know it does not have that....

Is this light on the computer, or on the monitor?

I suspect that it happens when you try to watch a movie or listen to music - something that doesn't involve typing on the keyboard or using the mouse? If so, then your computer goes to suspend mode. You have to open the Control Panel, Power settings, and select an "Always on" power scheme, and additionally change the "monitor off" option to Never. Then click "Apply", close the window and you should be fine.
