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.

Turned computer on and monitor instantly goes to sleep,also cant turn off the computer using button.have to use switch on power supply


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

When you push the power button on the monitor the green light comes on for a few seconds then goes to yellow. Any ideas? It is a Dell e773c connected to a HP Pavillon 700


Hi,

Please check the vga connection cable. It may not connected to the computer. If you have dual monitor support (2 monitor connection on the PC) try other vga port.

You need a windows xp version with sata drivers, this is why it will not let you load it. you can download this and put it on a memory stick then boot from there or place it on a floppy if you have one?.

HP Pavillion dv6700 - black screen


Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.
