Haven't been on here in a while, which is good - no recent problems with either of my systems. However, I've got a couple now - one pretty major and one fairly trivial, yet annoying. Firstly, just a TINY problem with a piece-of-crap emachine (T1140). Basically, it doesn't want to turn on. The computer hasn't been used in a few weeks, and apparently something happened the last time it was used - my mom informed me yesterday that she had told me the last time that it was on that something odd had happened but that I had said it was nothing (I, of course, don't remember this the slightest bit - and I know that sentence is a bit confusing, but I can't figure out how to reword it). So anyways, we got a router for free a few weeks ago and I've been searching for a cheap wireless PCI card, finally found one yesterday, bought it, and brought it home. The instructions warned that the software/driver must be installed first, so I tried to boot up the computer. (now the fun part) I could hear fans on the inside turn on, the power light (or activity light, whichever) on the front of the computer turned on. But that's it. No display on the monitor, just a flashing light. So I turn it off by unplugging the power cable from the PSU (would not turn off no matter how long I pushed down the power button for) and take off the side panel so I can see exactly what's going on. I plug the power cable back in, the PSU starts, PSU fans start blowing, light on the front goes on - but now I notice that the CPU HSF is not moving at all. I unplug the power again, and right as I unplug it the CPU HSF goes on for just a second. So I try unplugging different things and turning it on... first, the CD drive, then the CD drive and HDD, then absolutely everything (CD, HDD, FDD, RAM [2 sticks of 128MB... hehe], 56k modem, ethernet card). Even with everything unplugged except for the power to the MOBO, the CPU HSF doesn't move and the monitor signal is nonexistant when I turn it on. Oh and I also tried taking out the CMOS battery for >10 minutes to clear it, but obviously that didn't do any good - since I'm still posting this. I'm figuring that this means that either the PSU or MOBO is shot, but I also could easily have messed something up. I noticed that the PSU is 20/24 pin, and that the 4-pin connector is not connected to the mobo... however, I don't see any connector on the mobo for it, so I'm supposing that it simply doesn't use it. -------- Secondly, a minor problem with this computer (my gaming rig) Java. No me gusta Java. When I open a program which uses Java, such as Yahoo! Pool or Runescape (which I haven't played in a while, don't worry), it runs fine, but once I close Firefox (v 22.214.171.124.), I can't open Firefox again. It gives me an error message saying that Firefox is already running... so I just open Task Manager and close the process - it doesn't show up under the Applications tab - and all is well again, I can open it up just fine and do anything with it Also in IE (v6) I cannot open any Java items, it simply gives me a blank box, with a small white box which a red X in the upper-left corner. I've tried several things, but I think that IE is just messed up on my computer. I don't really care about this since I rarely use IE, but it would be nice for this to be enabled anyway. I appreciate any assistance with these issues.
