The following are possible situations that may arise during the use of
your computer, and each is followed by simple answers and solutions.
Q: I pressed the power switch but the system did not boot up.
A: Check the LED located above the power switch.
If the LED is not lit, no power is being applied to the system. Do any of
the following:
•
Check if the voltage selector switch located on the rear panel of
the computer is set to the correct voltage.
•
Check if you have properly plugged the power cable into an
electrical outlet.
•
If you are using a power strip or AVR, make sure it is plugged in
and turned on.
If the LED is lit, check the following:
•
Is a non-bootable (non-system) floppy disk in the floppy drive?
If yes, remove or replace it with a system floppy disk and press
<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del> to restart your computer.
Q: Nothing appears on the screen.
A: Your computer's power management function automatically
blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display
back on.
If pressing a key does not work, restart your computer. If restarting
your computer does not work, contact your dealer or the technical
support center for assistance.
Q: The printer does not work.
A: Do the following:
•
Make sure the printer is connected to a power outlet and that it is
turned on.
•
Make sure the printer cable is connected securely to the system's
parallel port and the corresponding port on the printer.
•
For additional information concerning the printer, refer to the
printer's documentation.

option. You can also press the volume control/mute knob on your
USB keyboard to toggle the mute function.
•
If headphones, earphones or external speakers are connected to
the line-out jack of your computer, the internal or built-in
speakers are automatically turned off.

up) into the proper drive (floppy disk goes into floppy drive, DVD goes
into DVD drive).
•
Check to be sure the CD or DVD is clean and unscratched.
•
Check your drive by using a good (undamaged) floppy or optical
disk. If your floppy, CD or DVD drive cannot read the information
on the good floppy disk, CD or DVD, there may be a problem with
the drive. Contact your dealer or technical support center for
assistance.
Q: System cannot write to floppy disk, hard disk or optical disk.
A: Check the following:
•
Make sure the media is not write-protected.
