DO THIS FIRST - Perform a hard resetIf a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first action. Performing the hard reset will correct many problems. If the computer still does not start properly, select your symptom from the list below to guide you to the recommended corrective actions.

  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and SD media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all residual power and restore default startup settings.
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not insert the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a fan or other moving parts turning.

Stuck in Aptio seup Utility

1. Power off the computer by holding the power button.

2. While holding down <Ctrl> and <Home> together, press the power button. Keep holding <Ctrl> and <Home> until you see "EZ-flash" start.

3. Let EZ-Flash run (will shut down automatically when finished running)

4. This is supposed to reset BIOS back to factory installed.

If this works, be sure to backup any data you may have on this machine. Then you may need to look on the manufacturer's site for any BIOS or driver updates.

Message:" There is a problem with the printhead.

Make sure your printer is updated. The firmware update, available in the Lexmark website, will help fix printhead-related problems. Follow these steps: 1. Remove the printhead from the printer.

2. Reset the printer by unplugging the power adapter from the printer (should be the whole black box on the back of the printer), leave it unplugged for about a minute then plug it back in.
3. Once the printer is back on, it will ask for the printhead. Just disregard the message by pressing or CANCEL button on your printer screen. Do not install the printhead yet.
4. Then, please use this link: to download and run the firmware on your computer. Please make sure that the USB cable is attached from the printer to the computer while you do this.
5. Once the firmware update is complete, you may reinstall the printhead.

When I turn on my computer it says "please do not power off or unplug your machine.Installing update 1 of 1" and it took for ever.

When you shut down the computer you will get this message when it has downloaded an update and depending upon the size of the update, this can take a long time to shut down. Just let it run and when the computer has finished the update it will shut down and switch off.
