The power went out of My place last night... I woke up and my Mother board was flashing orange... I tried to restart my computer. Nothing happened can somebody help me? It is a Dell computer


Steps:
1. Unplug all the cables from the computer. (If you are not sure then make a note of which cable goes where)
2. After you've unplugged the cables. Press and hold the power button on your computer for about 3-5 secs.
3. It wont start the comp :). This steps is done remove any left over power in the comp...
4. Re-connect all cables and check.

Let me know if this helps, If not, then i'll tell you what to do next. :)

Also, please let me know if you use Dial or ADSL Internet. Because if previous steps dont work then we need to try anther steps.

My compaq presario V6000 is stop working out of blue..Don't know why..the power cable is connected but hit the power button,nothing happens..any solution ??


Disconnect all cables from the computer. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. Reconnect only the power cable and try to turn on the computer on pressing the power button If it turns on then good otherwise, switch the power cable of the computer with the power cable of the monitor as they are the same cable as the power cable could be bad but this rarely happens. Open the computer and see if you see any light on the motherboard, if you do then the power supply is bad. If you dont then both power supply and the motherboard could be bad.

Computer freezing- blank white screen


Check your connecting cables to the monitor. They can become loose or you may have a cracked cable.

Gateway GT5220 PC desktop boot issue.


I had this same problem and tried a million trial and error steps to try to fix it. Finally, I tried replacing my keyboard that came with the GT5220 with an IBM keyboard from an old PC. I have had no problems since. I believe the root problem in the keyboard was affecting somehow they way the system unit was coming out of sleep mode. Good luck.

You need to go into the display settings of your computer once the cable is connected and change it to a dual-monitor setup. I'm going to assume you have windows 98/xp, you can find the display settings in your control panel under the title of "display". it'll be under the last tab of the window called "settings".

Keep it in mind, in reality there are a ton of ways to run two monitors. Chances are the one that your going to find easily is to "extend" your desktop onto your tv, making them both run as one screen. Hopefully that doesn't happen to you (you'll probably find it extremely annoying). Also, some video players wont let you play videos on your TV because their worried that your going to copy the video onto vhs.

The display on your tv will be blurry with s-video, and you wont be able to read text easily (hd-tvs are different if your video card is new enough to use the hd-tvs features, and/or your hd-tv can run computer displays. You can purchase a computer monitor to hd-tv cable online or at computer stores) but videos and pictures will look good. And if you have problems and you accidentally switch your display to the tv and your monitor is off, turn off the computer and unplug the s-video, it should go back to normal although it may happen if you put the s-vid cable back into the pc.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I have lots of experience doing this.
