Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I have a Dell 2405 (abt 4 yrs old) which when I switched it on yesterday gave a bit of a 'bang' and then died. No power light or anything. Is this something that is easy to diagnose? Regards Chris Moore

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors\015\012will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are\015\012good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work\015\012fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -\015\012connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the\015\012same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

My emachines T3828 will not power up. I changed the power supply, but that didn't help. my next suspect was the power switch. I found that the wires wer a little loose. Thinking that the power switch wires were one unit, I pulled them. Imagine my surprise when I saw that they wer actuall three seperate wires, One black and white, One blue and wdhite, and one red and white. I need to know how to reconnect them, and in which order. I also noticed that a green light comes on. I assume this is for t

There was no reason for the cable to just go bad.. The monitor was on overnight so perhaps something burned out.

My Dell Dimension E510 is making a "whirring" noise. It whirls loudly when I turn it on, like something inside is struggling to get up to speed. The computer takes more time than usual to become operable and open programs. Then with the computer on, the "whirring" comes and goes, it is more quite, but more uneven. Sounds like it's going fast sometimes, then speeds up and back and forth. I've opened the computer and cleaned the dust out of it. That didn't help. HELP. VHS


So what could make "whirring" sounds in a computer? Motors. What has motors? Fans, Hard Disc Drives, Floppy Drives and CD/DVD ROM Drives. I can't think of anything else. It doesn't sound like a CD/DVD/Floppy drive because you would only hear the nois ... Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
