Depends on your computers sleep settings. If it sends the computer to sleep you ussually have to hit the power button to get it to come back on.

When i shut down my pc it shuts down, but the psu stays on, i can turn it off by the button but not by the desktop, any ideas???


Hi, "Sleep" mode or "standby" mode allows your computer to go on standby or sleep until you "wake" it up again. This is a power saving feature which is usually used for a few hours. You can change it to completely shut down everything (including power supply) in power supply options in your control panel. Check out your help section for sleep or standby options. Hank

It is possible that you have a CA Voltage problem... so, do you have overvoltage protection at power supply?. though you should remove jumper from "boot block" pins (or similar) in the Motherboard (HP computers usually have it). This surely willl help you.

Can't get acer desktop to recognize logitech cordless mouse


Yes, you need to install the Logitech transmitter for your cordless mouse. The acer transmitter uses a different frequency. You could try pressing the connect button on both the existing transmitter and mouse but that's not likely to work with different manufacturers.

Hard drive compatible with gateway 300xl desktop computer


I think there is no SATA ports on its mother board. So SATA Hard disks cannot be used on this system.

Without any dobt you can use PATA (the one that we used to see everywhere) can be used. There is no question of compatibility; any size 80,or 160 GB or even more can be used.

Check the display cables , and if you have one test a different monitor on your computer.

If this is not a sceen problem, then it is an internal fault possibly the motherboard.

Try first leaving the PC power cord unplugged for ten, fifteen minutes and check if PC restarts afterwards.

Sleep on Vista is a combination of Standby and Hibernate. First it will go into Standby and then later if a laptop it will go into Hibernate. Any movement of mouse or keyboard may cause it to wake up.
Some computers will wake on Lan. If you have ethernet connected this may be the cause. You can turn this off by using Device Manager - Hardware - Select ethernet adapter - driver - Advanced - look for Wake on Lan and Pattern Matching and disable this.
ALso check your BIOS settings and disable all Wake on XXX settings.

Ensure that you did not press the conbination of keys that switches to the external screen, on thinkpads this is Function key , plus one of the numbers.

Check if the computer is in sleep (hybernate) mode, in this case you should be able to wake it up with the start button, or on some model with the wake up button.

IF you still cannto restart the computer, then it is probably frozen, remove battery and try to restart the laptop in this way.

After restarting check the power settings (you find them also on display properties/screensaver, or in the control panel). set the computer not to turn off.

If the computer screen does not turn on again doing the above, or there is no way to wake it up when it goes in standby, then the unit may be faulty.
If the computer is new, in this case, better getting a replacement or a repair.

I got 2 logitech wireless mice in same desk, because I dont have anywhere else to place them, and they interference with each other...How can I change frequencies? Please help Thanks


This is in the logitech knowledge base.

Question: ''When I move my cordless mouse, it moves the cursor on the system next to me. What should I do?''

Answer: ''This is called ''Cross talk'' and is characterized by one cordless device controlling the cursor or keyboard input of another device connected to a different computer. To avoid possible interference, try to keep the distance between systems at least 10 feet. Also, moving the mouse closer or further away to the receiver can also improve transmission and performance. If the above fails, try pressing and holding the ''Connect'' button on the receiver for 10 seconds. This will reset the receiver's connection information and allow you to do a first time connection with the receiver and mouse or keyboard. After holding the Connect button for 10 seconds, then press the Connect/Channel button on the bottom of the mouse to synchronize it with the receiver. If you have a cordless keyboard instead of, or in addition to, a cordless mouse, press the ''Connect'' button of the receiver again, then press the ''Connect/Channel'' button on the Keyboard. Perform these same steps on any other Logitech cordless devices in the area that are experiencing cross talk. Another step that can be tried is to remove the batteries for 15 minutes. Then re-insert them and boot the computer up. It is important that during this time, you do not press the connect button on the receiver or keyboard of the other cordless desktop system.

I could not find anything on mouse crosstalk in the Microsoft knowledge base. Perhaps the problem is not so common for MS mice because of their more limited range.

Buying a new mouse was suggested. This may or may not work if you bought a new Logitech mouse, as it could wind up on the same troublesome frequency. Of course, if you replaced the Logitech mouse with a Microsoft mouse, their limited ranges might eleminate the problem, even if they used the same frequency.
