Is your PC 2 years old or 20 ?
dell reUsed the model names, (sad no?)
the service tag information is 10x more better, post that. ok?

the screen is 100% black , never shows text at all??

fans still dead. do the long reset here.
Dell 15 3000 2016 or the
Inspiron 15 3000? (1998)

I guess is 2 years old max (2016 shows in the guide at
not the Dell 3000 from 1998?
3000 series, try tell the full model number and not just the series #
ok? be exact. on model, ok?
if the fan is dead inside say so and first.
that means there is no power to the PC (inside)
the fan must blow air. and speed up if too hot (inside)
if the fan does work.
and battery big out and AC pack good
you can connect the HDMI jack here to the TV and see if you get text or other errors are windows logon screens.

left side HDMI and matching cable. 2016 and newer 3000

hdmi-oyuevl04yzmzelvn3qorlmkh-2-0.jpg if your PC is 1998 (there is VGA JACK TO USE)

the battery large is no good, and shorted out and must be removed.
the tiny RTC coin cell this old is 100% hopeless, this old.
replace this next.
the test the HDD using a linux boot CD.
test the Laptop with Lunux demo CD. see if the PC is ok
then reload what ever OS you like, (ask)

2.2l. Where are coil packs located on engine?

quick way to see if a coil pack is firing with out using a thousand dollar analyzer is to use your twenty dollar timing light , just connect the power clamps as normal , but move the pick up to each branch pigtail wire to each plug , and ck to see if light flashes in a normal pattern , if it no flashes or don't flash in a pattern then that coil pack or spark plug is bad (id try the plugs first )

I am looking for an audio cable for a Sanyon ASX-3000 powered subwoofer.


I think the reason your not finding anything is that you have made an error in taking down the model number. First, I believe you meant SANYO and not SANYON. and I find very odd that your model ASX-3000 only gets very few hits on any search tool. Can you be more specific in what type of cable your talking about (from where to where) include pictures if you can.

Normally subwoofer have one RCA type input connector and SPEAKER IN type input bay, You can use either. Both wires necessary to connect to those inputs are available in dollars store and almost any hardware or electronic store.

Blue dots in screen . does that mean the lamp is going ?


I dont know of a good way to tell people bad news. The problem with the blue dots is expensive. A part called the optical block is failing. In general, the optical block takes the red green and blue pictures from the little lcd screens and puts everything togther perfectly. This requires several mirrors, filters, lcds, and parts that I dont even know the names of.

Buying a brand new optical block is a 1000 to 3000 dollar thing. To have the block rebuilt is about 350 dollars.

Sony has been trying to make the customers who purchased these tv's happy by providing extended warrentys, or giving them a special deal on a similar sized new LCD tv.

I would try to complain to sony and see what you can get accomplished. If you do opt to repair the optical block the odds are that it will happen again in a few years. Ebay and the chicago craigs list are where I have seen the guys who are capable of rebuilding those blocks.

I am sorry for the bad news.

It might sound absurd but the frantic truth is that the LCD screen of your phone is bad which might be as a result of previous shocks and abrasions which it has been subjected to.This is a common feature of the 9700 bold.

The only solution is to replace the LCD screen of your phone,it cots between 40-79 dollars .

Take care..
