Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
I am having trouble turning on my computer. i have to push the switch in 40-50 times before the computer goes on.
i am afraid to shut it off as it has happened already 3 different times. i have been letting it hibernate overnight for fear of shutting it but it has been on for almost 2 weeks now and i am afraid that the fan will just burn out overnight or something.
this just started last month otherwise the computer works perfectly.
could it be the actual power switch go bad and can it be replaced??
To trouble shoot this problem,I would open the case and make sure the cable are tight from the power switch to the motherboard, you can do this by sliding off the front of the case.
Once the front case is off you should be able with a pen or pencil push the switch slightly to turn it on. But watch and see is how far down the on/off switch goes in.
