Well maybe a power surge happened last night.

Is the computer plugged into a power protector? If not maybe something got fried.

Check for the smell of burnt components. It smells like burning plastic kind of. If everything looks fine make sure everything is plugged in tightly like the power cord and hard drives etc.

Hope this helped.

    Sounds like your Power supply (the box inside your pc) is broken.

    How old is this computers power supply?

    Try putting a new one in. ( You dont have to buy a new one just use one that works from another pc. I think we all know how expensive computer parts can be.)

    I hope this helps

    Is their something I missed? I am curious as to why you have me such a low rating. I am glad you at least rated me but I have given an exact answer to your problem and if that did not help you could have told me and I would have continued to help you. I do not by any means mean to sound offensive or rude. But then again I did the best I could to pin-point the problem and have done so.


    Hope this helped

WHY DO MY COMPUTER STARTS WITH TWO STEP?


Sounds like it is in sleep mode at startup. On some compaq, hp, and emachines the power button also serves as a sleep button. If you touch it, they go to sleep, hold it down at least 4 seconds, they shut off. If it was shut off this way that could happen. Also look in display properties under sreenssaver/power options to find the timeout on going to sleep, hibernate, password on waking up, using the tabs,(xp), or categories on the left (vista, 7, 8) to find these features. Also check under power schemes, advanced, and UPS to select timeout features and password on waking up. If it was touched to sleep, touching it should wake it up and allow it to be shutdown properly. On the next startup it should be normal.

Windows sleep mode problems


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity

You should be able to just press the main system unit power button to wake up your 'sleeping' computer which will then resume your Windows desktop and bring you back to the Login panel if you have a password set for your account.

No, you should check all the background running processes, one of them is waking the computer from sleep.
It's a common problem with media players or media agents, firewalls and anti-virus programs that updates frequently over internet.

it's probably in hibernate mode. go to your display properties ->screen saver, click the power tab and check the hibernate tab, try disabling hibernate.
Sometimes, if a machine won't properly wake from sleep, there may be a bug in the BIOS, you can try updating to the latest BIOS for your machine. Check the manufacturer's website to see if an update is available.

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc


If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.
