When I turn on the computer the power lights come on and stay on.
The hard drive light comes on and then cuts off. I try to hear the hard drive but cant tell if its on and is very quiet or its just not starting at all. The screen just stays black,there are no logos or any type of screen display happening just a solid black screen.

How do i turn off the HDD


What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



hope that helps if not let someone here know.

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.

Don't start up


check that all removable media is removed from computer, flash drives etc,if this message still appears the reinstall your os, there are several reasons for this error. You may have to replace your hard drive if that is the issue- you would know because after reinstall (if it makes it thru it) it will only crash again, this is much too big of a subject to sum it all up here and now, good luck... more questions just ask
