Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
PC's will start recognizing hardware from the moment you turn your PC on to when it goes off.
For safety reasons, there may come a time when hardware cannot be recognized thus your PC will refuse to turn on. Since this is debatable, id like to add that it could be a series of faults from faulty power leads to power supplies, a 'dead' motherboard/cpu, or even simply forgetting to turn the mains power on (it happens).
But don't jump to conclusions just yet!
Its a common occurrence when a PC tries to protect its hardware with its safety features that could cause your PC harm or even you. No need to get your wallet out just yet though, try this! Unplug your power cable and all devices such as USB flash drives, wireless devices, external storage devices etc (taking the power lead out on its own may not solve the problem). Keep them out for at least 30 seconds, then plug them back in including the power supply. You may find it was just one of your devices that was causing the problem.
