  • Issue#2489: Dell Inspiron N5010: N5010 - 8 beeps. Screen won't turn on

    Hello. I've had my N5010 for almost 3 years now, and lately I've come across some problems, which peaked with the last one - dead monitor apparntly. It started with overheating problems sometime ago, then 2-3 weeks ago whenever I turned on the laptop it wouln't boot or show anything, meaning it would turn on, the lights were on but there were no beeps of signs of boot or any display (well, screen backlight was actually going on but it was still dark), What I did whenever that happend was letting the battery dry out and then would plug it to the power supply and turn it on, usually worked. Then, about a week ago, it stopped working all together - whenever I turn it on, the screen stays black and after a few seconds the laptop starts to beep 8 times over and over again until I shut it down. I've read online that 8 beeps means there's a problem with my screen or something like that. I've tried connecting it to an external monitor yesterday and it does work. What are my options? My wa

    On Pavilion 600-1120 All-in-One optical drive the tray won't slide out.  From eject button or clicking eject from computer/E drive or from HP diagnostics a whirring sound occurs but the tray does not come out.  Unlike a laptop, there is no tiny hole to insert a paperclip.  Device Manager says the drive is working and the drivers are up to date.  I can slide in a CD or DVD but the diagnostic says "no media" and the CD or DVD I slid in ejects itself without any tray.

  • Issue#203240: Acer - Aspire x1200 dvd drive won't open

    I have recently been given a free Acer Aspire x1200 mini desktop.  It works perfectly except for the DVD Drive.  It lights up and sounds like it wants to open but it's stuck.  I accessed the emergency pin hole and there's nothing in the drive.  I disconnected everything to give it a thorough clean (it was covered in dust.  I put everything back in and reconnected everything the way it was before.  I started it back up and the tray still won't open.  I'm thinking the DVD Drive needs to be replaced nut I don't know for sure.  It could also be the SATA cable that connects to the board might need replacing.  Is there anyone out there who can help me?  I would love to fix this up and sell it for some money towards fixing my car. Any help greatly appreciated!!!

  • Issue#314854: Dell Inspiron 1525: Cannot get wireless after new hard drive

    Hi, I have recently replaced the hard drive, battery and power adapted for this laptop.. Since then I have lost the wireless capability of the laptop, the Ethernet connection works fine. I downloaded and installed the drivers that are available from dell support. The switch on the side of the laptop when you push it forward does not illuminate, however it does illuminate when the machine is turned off with the power still connected. Not sure if the new battery and adapter is connected with this issue, as the new battery isn't charging and the system says it doesn't recognise the adapter Quite frustrating so if anyone can help me that would be fantastic Thanks in adavance Steve
