  Federal investigators have determined that a computer malfunction

on for about
  half an hour Saturday evening, an FBI spokeswoman said Tuesday.

  Airport officials were initially concerned that a hacker caused the

  ''We looked into it and determined it was not a hacker,'' FBI
spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said.

  A representative for Siemens Airfield Solutions, which designed the
lighting system, said it was a simple hardware problem in which a touch

  ''The touch screen that turns the lights on was not responding,'' said
Joe Pokoj, director of sales and marketing for Siemens.

  The problem occurred at about 8:20 p.m. Saturday, when officials tried
to turn the lights on and the system did not respond.

  The runways were closed temporarily until officials turned the lights
on manually by 8:55 p.m.

  Aviation officials said only a couple of planes were affected.
