    [Solved] Using external DVD player. No DVD detected

    This could be your problem. Some DVDs and DVD players are regional. In other words DVDs designated Region 2 are for use in Europe. Region 6 is China. Can you see a region anywhere on the drive? You say it is a cheap one - does it actually say Read and Write ? Could it be Read only ? If you...

Prolonged spraying causes the propellant to be expelled as a liquid. Suggest that you do this outside - just in case. Download...

    Computer powering up but not detecting any peripherals

    Hi again, If you are changing the M-Board you will probably find that you have to re-activate Windows again. Windows will probably not be able to identify the new hardware.

    Computer powering up but not detecting any peripherals

    Hi again, Thanks for the further details - it does help clarify the problem. If the machine performed normally for 2 days it is unlikely that the strike damaged the motherboard or any other components other than the SSD. I have never heard of a "delayed reaction" to a spike. The components...

    Computer powering up but not detecting any peripherals

    Hi, and welcome to FpcH Are you assuming that the SSD was corrupted or do you know? This is confusing me because if the OS is on your SSD and it is corrupted - how can you use the computer normally ? When you say "Powers up" does Windows load up ? The lightening strike could have taken out...

    Hi Brian, Is this where you sign in with a password after switching on? Do you need this option? If not it is a simple matter to remove the password so that your machine boots straight up. Does the date and time show correctly? [ bottom right of screen ] Sometimes the CMOS battery can cause...
