Computer won't turn on unless I unplug the Ethernet Cable
Every time I push the power button on my computer it won't respond. If (after pushing the power button) I unplug the ethernet cable it will start up immediately. Additionally, it will occasionally turn on if I unplug the power cable, plug it back in, and quickly push the power button.

Re: Computer won't turn on unless I unplug the Ethernet...
Is the Ethernet built-in on the system board? I would go to BIOS (hit F2 while booting the PC) and disable the ethernet. then restart the PC. See if it stays on with or without the Ethernet cable plugged in. If it does. The built-in Ethernet circuit is the problem. I would buy a Ethernet adapter ($20).and install it. and leave the built-in ethernet disabled. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Gary, Could be power supply failure. Links below for trouble shooting your problem. "I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button. Check out some of my other posts if you need more tips and info."
this is most likely a short in a computer component, You need to unplug everything from the computer incl CPU, Memory, Add on Cards, Hdds, the lot, just have motherboard plugged in and push power, if it powers up (there won't be a pic but you will know it's working) start replacing parts one by one until it won't start and that is the faulty part. If it does nothing with just motherboard plugged in the motherboard is at fault and needs to be replaced, If you have had the motherboard out make sure no of the metal mounts in the case are shorting out anywhere under the motherboard as this will also cause the same fault.
First, since this router was used by someone else, you'll need to reset it. After you plug the power in, push in the little button on the back (you'll probably have to push it in with a pencil or pen). Hold it in for about 15 seconds until the power light on the front begins to blink. Now you're ready to hook up the router. The router probably has 5 ethernet ports on the back. The ethernet cable that comes out of the modem goes into the WAN port on the router. This is the one port that is separate from the others. The computer has an ethernet cable that is currently plugged into the modem. Disconnect it from the modem and plug it into one of the 4 remaining ports on the back of the router. Now the router is in the middle. Modem connected and computer connected. If you have a cable modem, you'll need to unplug it for about 15 seconds and plug it back in. Trust me on this--you just have to do that. If the cable modem also powers your phone, you'll need to take the battery out of the modem and then put it back in. Now turn on your computer. You should connect to the internet. If not, the router will need some setup, but unless I know more details, I can't help you. You'll just have to ask again.
Cable modems bond to what they are plugged into, so you have the modem plugged into a computer and it is working fine. Then you want to unplug the ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into another device such as a netgear router. Then you find no matter what you do it will not work.
Now normally to break this bond to the computer so that it will bond with the router you would simply unplug the electrical power from the cable modem, wait for it to sync back up with your ISP's CMTS, power up your router which you would have connected via the internet or wan port, and you would be up and running.
You may have even did this with your Arris TM602. Why isn't your router pulling an IP address? The reason is simple, pulling the power cord did not really remove power since the modem has battery back up.
In order to make it release its bond to your computer, so it can bond with the router you need to either push the reset button on the back of the modem while still powered up or remove its battery pack while unplugged from power.
So try again, this time push reset on the modem. This question was posted in January so I am sure buttercup is all fine by now but maybe this will help someone else.
Open the computer casing to access the DVD drive from inside.
Disconnect the cable on the DVD drive leaving only the power supply connected to it.
Turn on the computer.
Push the OPEN/CLOSE button on the DVD drive. If it does not open, the drive is broken or the door drive motor is defective. If it opens, push the button repeatedly to open and close the door repeatedly to release any frozen part.
If the door does not stuck anymore, shut down the computer.

If it won't charge and wont power up then same thing happened to me. If you are willing to open up your psp there is a video on youtube that can show you whats wrong. The cable that connects the buttons on the right side most likely disconnected from the main board and the right side of the psp including the buttons, the power switch and the top right trigger won't respond. When you try to turn on the psp and when its charging if the light won't come on then you might have this problem.
