My emachine starts diplays icons then the screen turns black


This sounds like a problem with the screen rather than the PC. What happens is, the screen's inverter (which drives the screen's backlight) is failing after it warms up. Try your PC with another monitor if you can and see what happens! Or alternatively, try another PC (or laptop) with your screen and see if the same thing happens - that would tell you that it's the screen at fault.

I am trying to fix a power problem on a medion laptop. When you press the power button, the power led lights up but nothing else happen. The laptop does not start. Any help.


Hi,

When you turn on the system and NO BEEP sound it could be a problem with the system board that fails initialize and boot your system to the operating system. If you hear a beeping sound, you may need to reseat the memory card of your system.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Hello I have a HP laptop and wstwrday was everything OK. Today morning I turn it on and screen is black and laptop make it just sound.. PiiiP one long and two short ? what cain of problem is...


Sounds like a Power-On Self Test (POST) error.

Usually one long and three short beeps indicate a memory error.

Could anything have happened to dislodge the memory? You could try unpluging, taking out the battery, earthing yourself and then removing the cover on the memory enclosure (usually one screw at the bottom releases the cover). Check that the modules are pressed right home into their clips.

If there is more than one module, try removing one at a time to see if there is one failed one.

If the memory has failed, you are looking at new memory I'm afraid.

My laptop will just shut off, like when the power goes out and your television turns off. It happens usually when I am listening to music on internet radio, but it'll also happen randomly when I'm not...


The laptop could be over-heating, or if your running it on battery only the battery may be faulty or not charged enough. Even when windows says a battery is full, its not always correct.

An easy way to see if it might be software is to boot to a bootable cd and let the computer sit for a while.

It could also be your ram, or other failing device. Best thing would be to have it checked out by a professional.

Computer


THE LAST OPTION AND THE SAFEST ONE IS THAT BACKUP UR DATA AND FORMAT YOUR HARD DISC. THIS WILL ELIMINATE ANY FURTHER INFECTION BY THE SAME VIRUS IF ITS NOT REMOVED BY THE ANTI VIRUS.

My laptop has a faint light blue shadow appearing to the right of any black to white high contrast image or any plain black text. Is it a heat problem with my video card or is my monitor about to fail?


early warning that video is going south. could be video chip or the screen itself. happen with any other card? YOu might consider re installing the video drivers

Dead loptap


how suddenly? like everything was fine then wont go on now? or things were acting strange then - dead? their can be two to three things that have happened, dead battery (flat or split!) blown fuse in the AC TO DC stepdown on the mains power cable. (the box with the little light on the power cable.) or component falure. this will only likley happen if you drop it while its on or similar tho. unless its new? my first idea would be to see if its stil under warrentee then look at a repair quote i would do a job like this for $270 if its a component fail or $150 if its a power systems fail! so dont get ripped of :) ask which one first. good luck!
