    Proliant N40L - no video? Or doesn't boot?

    I've had a Proliant N40L running in the cupboard under the stairs for years. Never missed a beat. However I've got some old drives lying around, and I found an N54L on eBay for buttons, so I thought I'd get myself another server. It's not here yet, but I thought I'd pull the old N40 out and have...

    TX-55AS802B fails to boot

    This TV will not turn on unless the on/off button is held down. In which case it stops at the Panasonic logo screen then restarts again. The power must then be turned off and when turned on again it boots to a blank screen. I feel it is a relay which the button activates but the power is not...

    Toshiba L670D turns on but doesn't POST or boot up

    A friend asked me to have a look at a laptop he owns. It turns on but just a blank screen. The laptop is a Satellite L670D. I turned it on, and after the dvd drive making a couple of clunking sounds (being detected by the BIOS most probably), it just stops. The "Toshiba" POST screen doesn't...

    Dell laptop beeps 8 times and won't boot

    I'm trying to fix my daughter's laptop, which has developed a problem. It won't boot, and gives me 8 loud beeps. I think this is due to an LCD failure. Anyone had this problem before and fixed it?

    Article: Secure boot for UK electric car chargers isn't mandatory until 2023

    https://www.theregister.com/2022/01/11/electric_car_charging_security_uk/ Not sure how big a risk random code is on chargers at the moment but I can only imagine it offers an interesting route into the car? The potential for public chargers to spread something unpleasant far and wide must be...

    PC won't boot - help needed to identify the culprit.

    My PC is (very) long in the the tooth at 12 years old, but worked well enough for what I needed out of it - mainly internet browsing, iTunes, and some light CAD work. It's recently "died" and I need some advice on where the issue lies - I'm pretty sure it's a hardware fault, and I'm just...

    I can’t find a way to do this, but is it possible to have a HD Solo boot up straight to the movie wall in My Collection ?

    Strange screen pre boot up.

    What is this, marked with an arrow that appears before my PC fully loads? I can find nothing in msconfig/system configuration. The only thing I am not so sure about is in the general section of System configuration, 'Selective Startup' is selected as opposed to 'Normal' or 'Diagnostic' which of...
