Need to turn Computer off at wall so i can use front power button

Hi everyone,  I am writing this on my Compaq Evo, so it is functioning properly when on however, when I shut the machine down and go out for the day or leave it for more than 5 mins off, I go to press power button and the machine will not come on, then if I unplug machine wait 10 secs plug power back in, machine powers up no problem. Its only just started doing this and i'm worried it may get worse to the point where I cant turn my machine on, what do I need to replace if anything as I dont have alot of cash around to buy a new PC just at the moment

    are they relatively cheap to replace, the power supply?

    To me it sounds like a power supply going bad.

Go to newegg.com and look at some. All you have to know is the type (most are the same  ) And the wattage. You may get one with a larger wattage rating but not a smaller one. 
Select your D500 -??? manual for the weblink to the COMPAQ support website for your model below and download a manual to find out type of powers supply and wattage. They are easy to change . Just four mounting screws and replace one wire at a time so as nto to get mixed up.    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/pfinder?query=++Evo+D500+&dest_page=productℑ.x=9ℑ.y=3&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en

Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

Laptop not working


Hi,

Disconnect the battery and the AC adapter from the computer.. Hold down the power button for 2 mins. Now connect the AC adapter only..

If it was an issue with the static electricity then it should fix it.

Else try changing the wall outlet and chk if the connections are fine.

If the brick on\f the ac adapter does not get warm then probable the adapter has gone bad and need to be replaced.

If the it still does not work then you can also try reseating the ram and the hard drive.

If all the above does not work then probable the power module on the nb has gone bad and need to be repaired.

ACTIVATE Wireless Link????


On some models check to make sure that the actual physical "switch" is turned on (if there is one). Usually located in the front or side of the laptop. Also, make sure your HOLDING the function key while pressing F2, otherwise it won't work. Hope this helps!
