Hi,.. it is the spring of the button or the button itself might be the problem that's why it is difficult to
push in and out. if you want to use your computer, just remove the cover of the start button so you can easily
push it in..if you don't know how to remove the cover, you really needed to consult your technician
and replace a new button...

If you grab a hold of the lower face of the PC and pull it off you will be able to see if anything is jamming the button or if the button is broken if so just use the small grey button behind the Bigger button on the face to turn the PC on..

If that makes no sense i apologise hard to explain

Good luck

Carl

Won't go into sleep mode


Which operating system ?


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.


This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation.


Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money!


Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow.


The Shut Down menu appears.

Point at "Sleep" and click on this option.

Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode.


Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse.

There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on.


All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode.


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time.


Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security."

Click "Power Options."

A menu opens.


Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode.


If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity


Your Computer in sleep mode


First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby.


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management.


Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button.


Push the Power button.


Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby


Save all work before leaving your computer.


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.


Double-click Power Management.


Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks.


Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered.


Putting Your Computer in Hibernation


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.


Double-click Power Settings.


Click on the Advanced tab.


At the When I Push the Power Button On My Computer screen, click Hibernate.


Click the Power button.


Hope this helps.

Try this, unplug everything from the other board except the main hard drive, power connections, and monitor. if it does not come up, remove ram cards, leaving one stick. try again, if it is still bad swap ram sticks. If after all of this it still does not work you have a bad motherboard or processor

My hp pavillon a6600f make a long beeping sound


Shut down and unplug your computer.

Unscrew the two screws on the back of the case and open the side panel of the case.

Remove your RAM memory stick(s) from their holders.

Replace them into their respective holders again.

Ensure they are seated properly and clipped in.

Plug your power cord back in and see if your computer will boot. You can leave the side panel off just don't stick your fingers in there when it's plugged in.

If the problem persists, then you may have one or more bad RAM memory sticks.
If you have more than one stick installed, try removing one and reboot.

Always unplug your PC before removing RAM sticks and try not to touch the copper contacts on the RAM stick to avoid static damage, they can be delicate.

Good luck and please post back about how you make out.

My HP wx8200 can't run. When I push the start button my computer have a noise and show a red light. I can't do anything. Can you help me please?


My first guess would be either the memory or the hard drive: one of them is either bad or unseated.

I would recommend looking at the memory first. Just make sure all the sticks are pressed firmly in.

If it has been months or years (if ever) since you have blown all the dust out of your case I would that as well. Dust could very well be clogging up the CPU or other important fan.

How to check weather computer will support 64 bit


Open the "System Properties" window

If your Start menu is configured for Classic Start menu, right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and click Properties.

If your Start menu is the Windows default Start menu, click the Start button, then right-click the My Computer icon in your Start menu, and click Properties.

Click the Advanced tab.

Click Environment Variables.

In the "System variables" list at the bottom of the Environment Variables window, look for a variable called "PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE". If your PC has a 32-bit processor, this variable will have a value of "x86". If it has a 64-bit processor this variable will have a value of "x64".

Broken HP Pavillon dV6000


Explain, (endured a hit). Electrical or physical?
For the hard drive (a clicking sound means a spindle problem). Suggest you get a new drive if it's no longer under warranty. Once you install a new drive you can slave your old bad drive into the system & pull your data off it before it stops working.

As for the laptop it's better off with a pro.
