Question about Fujitsu Siemens SCENIC L PC Desktop
Hi I've a Fujitsu Siemens mini-tower with Pentium 4 and 256 MB of memory and a 40 GB hard disk, running XP Pro SP1 The problem with this PC is that after shutting down (either by pressing the power button or by selecting shut down from the start menu) the power light turns to amber as though its gone into standby/hibernation mode. Unplugging the PC from the power suppy eliminates the light, but on plugging it back in the PC boots up. This boot up occurs without the power button on the PC casing being pressed. Has anyone faced this problem? Any ideas would be of great help.
Firstly please install Service pack 2, there are too any security problems with service pack one and power settings problems, this can be ordered free of charge from Microsoft or downloaded. When you say it boots up when you plug it in do you mean it comes out of Hibernation and returns to the desktop saying programmes are running or does it do a full boot up. Sounds as if you need to go into the bios to enable ACPI, see this post on how it's done. http://www.fixya.com/support/t121839-monitor_turns_off_automatically. Go into control panel>power options and click advanced tab to make sure the power button at bottom reads 'when i press the power button on my computer' 'SHUTDOWN' Then on the hibernation untick enable to see if it cures it.
