    Your pc is either set to quick or silent boot or it wasn't shutdown but only sleeping.

    If it is sleeping, then it will not go through the normal start up routine as it was not shut down.

    How do you turn it off at night?

Go to control panel-->power options---->advanced. Here "when I press the power button" should be set to "shut down". Same with the "sleep button".

Now go to hibernate. Here uncheck the box under hibernation.
Press apply then ok. I hope your problem will be solved.

Hit start Alienware computer goest to alien head on screen then straight to sleep mode. Please read


When you say computer clock do you mean the LED read out on the mother board? if so the numbers you are seeing are error codes you will need the mother board manual to know what those codes mean. If you don't have the manual it's possible you can go to the mother board manufacturers web site and download one then you can look up the codes to see what the problems are. Hope this helps

I am using a lenovo all in one ideacentre computer. The screen goes black for a few seconds then comes back


The screen goes black then comes back. When it comes back are you able to use the computer without any problems? When does this happen? Most times during the boot process the screen will fade in and out.

If this is not happening when you boot the system it's possible that your lcd screen might be going bad so keep an eye on it.

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

The screen went blank while the computer was on, we restarted it, the screen shows the Dell sign & the white bar then it goes blank, it won't go into safe mode, the light is green on the monitor, what...


If there is a faint image in the background it is the coils on the planar if no image it is either the invertor or the backlight
If you have a faint image resolder the coils or replace them

Computer turns itself off alot


Is it going into stand by or actually shutting off? The only way to tell is when you turn it on does it jump straight into windows or does go through a list of things including how much memory there is?

My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image


You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?

System passes the logon screen


Keep tapping the F8 key while you boot your machine, hopefully you will get a black screen with some white writting on it.
Using the up and down arrows select Boot Safe Mode without Networking.
Once you boot into safe mode go to programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and follow the wizard to restore your machine back to a time and date before you installed the modem software.
