Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Hello Mozhbe, I used this before and it works, you need to use CMD ,copy and paste it into CMD.
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

After this you need to restart your PC to make the change.

I have a hp a288n desktop. It quit responding as it has done previously and it wouldn't turn off, so I turned it off by the power button. When I went to turn it back on it would not start. I have unplugged...


I've attached the steps needed to be taken if your computer does not turn off.
If you pc is turned off and you can't turn it on now, please provide me more informations like;
  • what is the color of your screen
  • what written on your screen
  • Can you see cursor blinking or arrow
  • Any error message displayed?
  • The HP or Compaq Logo Screens are Missing on Startup
  • When the pc stops responding, before or after Windows start up?
Steps below is to show you how to resolve the issue of the pc not shutting down.

Step 1: Using one anti-virus program
You only need one anti-virus program. If more than one anti-virus program is open at the same time, uninstall the extra software programs. Several virus scanning software on the same PC can create software conflicts. This is also true for multiple versions of the same anti-virus software. For example, if Norton Antivirus version five and Norton Antivirus version 2002 are both installed on the same PC, uninstall the older version (version 5 in this case). Use the following steps to remove programs:
  • In Windows XP, click Start , then Control Panel.
  • In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , then Control Panel
  • Double-click Add/Remove Programs
  • Select the anti-virus software that you want to remove and click the Add/Remove button, or the Change/Remove button in Windows XP.
  • Restart the PC when the uninstaller has finished.
  • When the Windows desktop appears, restart the PC again. The PC should shut down and restart normally this time. If not, continue to the next step.
Step 2: Disabling Software that opens with Windows
For troubleshooting purposes, reduce the amount of software that opens with Windows to try and find out if a software conflict is occurring.

  • Open the Microsoft System Configuration software (Msconfig), remove the selection next to Load Startup Items , click OK , and restart the PC.
  • For more information, refer to Preventing Programs from Opening When Windows Starts .
    Restart the PC using Windows.
  • If the Windows still fails to close, continue to next step.

Step 3: Turning off all power options
Turn off all Windows power management options and shut down the PC as follows.

  • In Windows XP, click Start , Control Panel , and then Performance and Maintenance.
  • In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , and then Control Panel .
  • Double-click the Power Options icon.
  • The Power Options Properties window appears.
  • Click the Power Schemes tab and change all selections under Settings for Always On power scheme to Never .
  • Click the Hibernate tab and remove the check mark from Enable hibernate support .
  • Click the OK button to accept the changes, and then restart the PC.
  • When the Windows desktop appears, restart the PC again. The PC should shut down and restart normally this time. Regardless, continue to the next Step to see if a BIOS update is available.
Step 4: Upgrading the BIOS
The BIOS is code that the PC uses at start up and is responsible for many things. One of those things is power management, which can get in the way of the shutdown process.

last option:
