Some programs need a substantial amount of RAM and in case of computers with smaller RAM, they tend to freeze. Either close some of the running programs or increase the RAM capacity. In every likelihood it should work.

Bought a Packard Bell Onetwo L5851 yesterday. Unable to switch it on....Blank screen with a few lights below,thats it . Nothing responding.


I have a similar problem with a Packard Bell OneTwo S PG4G1TU01 : when switching it on, it work a few minutes and suddenly shutdown, as a brutal power down. But the green light at the bottom still working. I have changed the extern power supply and now it work fine... The new power supply is a 90W model, not a 65W like the original one. Maybe it can help ?

Choose Screen Resolution For higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments. This procedure tells you how to adjust screen resolution through Display Properties in Control Panel.

20 minutes ago my computer was fine, its a packard bell imedia 3051. i turned it off the usual and proper way and switched it off at the wall. i just switched it all back on and now it wont even turn on i...


I am giving you a step which you should try once and see if it makes any difference.

Method (Power cycle)

You need to unplug the power cord from the tower and also remove any other device connected to the computer (May be any additional cards or any wires as for Ethernet or speakers mouse, keyboard).

Nothing should be connected at all to the tower.

Now Press and hold the power button on the tower for 25 seconds (It wont show anything). This is a step to release any static charges developed, which may surely caused the kind of issue you are facing.

Now connect the Power, keyboard and mouse and check, it should certainly work now.

Hope this should help

Regards
Sammy
