I push the power button and nothing happens. It happened previously and a few days later I pushed the button and it came on as mysteriously as it went off. What can I do to troubleshoot or fix the...


Depending on how long the power was off, your desktop power supply circuit capacitors may have fully discharged during the power outage. This will effect how fast your computer will turn on when you press the power button. Turning off the power by pulling the cord, or a power outage while the computer was on will usually result in a message that Windows was not shut down down properly when you try to restart it. Also make sure your computer isn't plugged into a 'switched' receptacle that's wired to turn on a table lamp etc from a wall switch. It's usually the bottom half of the receptacle that's switched while the top plug is always 'hot' or powered and unswitched in a wall switch controlled recepacle situatation.

Computer will not turn on


It sounds like your power switch (the buttone you push to turn on the computer) is stuck, or you have a bad power supply (that provide power to the computer). Electric components sometimes go back if they are not used often.

Acerpower SV PC will Not turn off


More information would help to resolve this issue.

Are you shutting down by selecting Start and shutdown or have you tried pushing the power button on push (not holding the power button)?

Try this:
Press and hold the power button in solidly for about 10 seconds. If it shuts down before you get to 10 just let off the power button. This should work, but may not solve the problem.

If you reboot it and still can not shut down from Windows, hold power button until it shuts down, unplug the power cord and disconnect everything from the computer other than the keyboard, mouse and monitor. With the power plug still unplugged, hold the power button in for about 15 seconds (this resets the power supply and can clear a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect power and after booting, see if you can shut down from Windows.

If still no go, click Start, Programs, Accessories, System tools and select System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back to a time before you had problems shutting down. That should do the trick.

Let me know if you get it fixed or if you need more advice.

WHAT IS THE RESET BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 2500 SPECIFICLY DO. IN OTHER WORDS IF I PUSH IT WILL I LOSE ALL MY STORED INFORMATION ON THE DRIVE?


This is straight from the manual:

Occasionally, Windows or the notebook might stop responding, so that you cannot turn the notebook off. If this happens, try the following in the order listed. Press the power button to restart.
• If possible, shut down Windows: press ctrl+alt+del, and then select Shut Down > Restart.
If the system will not allow a software shutdown, press and hold down the power button until the display shuts down (about 4 seconds) and then release the power button. Press the power button again to restart.
• Use a ballpoint pen or a straightened paper clip to press the reset button on the bottom of the notebook.

In other words: You will not loose any saved data if you reboot your laptop this way. All unstored information (open documents etc.) might be lost though.
