Hi Howard64, Thank you very much for your fast reply. I am 70 years old so please excuse for not explaing 100% When I switched on my computer the orange light lit up on the modem as normal then the screen lit up blue as normal then before it went any further the computer went dead. Peter
Thank you for your reply Totally- Braindead.When I switched on the monitor did light up for about 3 seconds no sound was heard but this normal for a few seconds then the monitor closed down and the modem but the little warning light on the monitor was still visable. Peter
hi wallytof im 64 so not much below you. When you switch the pc on you should get a series of beeps. Normally with everything working ok it is a single long beep. If a component fails the pc gives a series of beeps which if you can identify them ie long / short and how many of each in which sequence then knowing the make and bios the sequences are listed and can point to the problem. Now do you get any beeps or nothing at all? Unplug all stuff hanging out of the pc such as usb cables just leave the monitor in see what happens.
Hello ed-o, I am sorry not sure about your question but I think I know what you mean,I have only 1 unit and every plugs into this Power Cable, Key board,Scanner, Monitor,Printer, Phone cable so I assume that the Modem is not external but built inside. I have unplgged the mains cable and plugged it back in with out success.hope this helps. Peter

By the way I am using my notebook to contact you Peter
