Question

I turned on my computer and it says "no source detected." This was after a recent power outage. What do I do to fix it?

Are you sure your computer is turning on? A lot of times the power supply can fry ($50 part) from an power surge like losing power. If the computer DOES turn on and it beeps a few times and the hard drive lights flash, then the PC is probably booting up fine however your Video card might have fried. Best thing is to take it into a computer store and have them look at it. Try to replace 1 thing at a time however.

        Dear Steve Thank you for your invitation to write to your blog. Your blog has been very useful to me since I came to know it through Andre Costa on Twitter. I am not great computer expert, but have been handling them since early 70s in Pune (India) where I was doing my post-grad studies at the University. I am a history researcher and also contribute as columnist to various dailies in Goa since past decade or so.  Computers have been my companions of research, and hence my interest in being computer-friendly! As a founder-director of research institute in Goa, affiliated to Goa University, perhaps I took a pioneer step in providing a digital catalogue of the research library in late 1970s. More on me you may find on Wikipedia by looking for Teotonio R. de Souza or at https://about.me/teodesouza Teotonio R. de Souza
