SOURCE: Screen stays black and have to shut down and restart, this happens 2 to 3 times per week.

With no more information that what you have provided I would start by reseating the memory and video card if you're not using onboard video. Then I would check the hard drive via chkdsk, run it from a command prompt. If the drive seems ok the next thing I would do is reinstall the OS. If it still gives you trouble after that you have a faulty component (memory, processor, power supply, video card, or mother board) and I would start swapping in known good components.

SOURCE: A power surge shut down the computer -- green light flashing

For those who have this problem:

I just had the SAME problem. In fact, prior to my power outage last night, my comp was shutting down after sleep mode on its own.

It is your POWER SOURCE UNIT. I am not a computer guy, and, until today, had never opened up a computer before. After several posts like this hinted at the power source as the culprit, I took the shell off my computer and figured out what the power source was. (it's the little box in the back of your computer that sends power to the different parts. it has a spot where you plug your power cord into. there is also a fan on it.)

I monkeyed around and figured out how to disconnect it from all of the different spots. I went to Best Buy and bought their cheapest one (which has more voltage than the one my computer came with) and took it home. A little elbow grease and the new one was in. My computer turned back on right away.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: no power flashing green light

You have power to the computer, but not enough.

Bad Power Supply, with weak voltage power rail.

1) ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

[If the computer in question is an HP Pavilion A645c, it uses an AMD Athlon 3200+ processor, that fits in a Socket A processor socket. (Socket A is also referred to as Socket 462)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00183033&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=425922?=en


The AMD Athlon 3200+ processor can use up to 76.8 Watts.
(2.2GHz, and a 400MHz FSB)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors#Athlon_XP_.22Barton.22_.28Model_10.2C_130_nm.29


With a bad power supply, you don't have enough power to turn the Processor on.

(Computer dirty inside, as well as the Power Supply, is the leading cause of computer, and also Power Supply failure)

Suggestion is to test the Power Supply, or replace Power Supply with a Known to be good, compatible unit, for a test.

(Compatible being that the power supply,
1) Is the correct shape, and size.
2) Has the same amount of Wattage, or more.
3) Has the correct amount of power cables, and the correct kind )

Testing can be done with an inexpensive multimeter, or an inexpensive power supply tester.

One example of an inexpensive power supply tester,

Connecting hp photo smart 7350 printer to northgate computer


Hello,

You need to install the driver of your printer that works with the operating system of your northgate computer. The driver is in the CD/DVD that came with your printer.

After installing everything, you can add RadarSync to your computer to optimize your computer's driver (eg. keeping them updated to avoid from some problems, and running automatic updates so that you can avoid from the headaches of doing the updates manually).

I hope this helps.

If you need more info, please let me know.

I need to know which chip my PC uses (XP) on my Northgate computer (desktop) in order to install the correct 2517C2 driver. Please?


The best place to look for what CPU chip your computer uses is the bios. XP should have automatically detected this unless you are hot chipping and hot shipping is not recommended.

I have a northgate WALAMD200A, the power went down and now it refuses to start up, cutting off in a few seconds and restarting. It goes to screen asking if Normal start up or safe start up but my key board...


Unplug it and wait a bit, then retry.
If it fails again:
-an internal fan might be stuck, causing the thing to shut down out of caution
-the BIOS battery might have given up the ghost
-a chipset heatsink might have fallen off and need some care
-the power supply might be toast (swap for a good spare of adequate wattage and retry)
-maybe your videocard just got unseated because of cable buggering, just set it back
