  Hi,     I think you might have a cooling issue with the CPU (Main Chip). If the CPU is getting Hot it will shut the system down preventing damage. Check the  inside of the case and be sure that the fan for the CPU is functioning. You might also have your power supply checked as well...

I accidently shut my computer down with hibernation before leaving. When I come home, the computer will not turn on, no lights no noise, nothing. How do I unlock the hibernation? Or could it be something...


You need to hit the power button just the once to bring it back out of hibernation mode. It may take around 30 seconds until you hear your computer starting to boot back up and a little longer for the screen to come on.
Failing this, you can try a hard reboot by holding down the power button until you hear your computer re-boot. Usually you need to hold around 10 seconds. However using this last method as a final resort will result in your computer telling you that it did not shut down properly.

Feed dogs won't go up on my Babylock Ellegant


the thread may be jammed beneath the feet and you can't see this from your view. take the feet off and you'll probably discover the beginning of the thread jam. Use patience getting the thread out. It is better to cut than pull (that'll leave just enough behind to start another jam and then it'll be time for a break)

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.


So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.

Compputer shuts down abruptly


It sounds that you might having problem with your power supply unit, try replacing it with another working one. Problems like this one can be caused by defective power supply unit.

Computer keeps shutting off


Hi,
The problem more likely seems with the power supply or the front power button. Donnot try switch on the computer again and again it may cause damage to the motherboard. Use the following link to pin point the problem.
