Hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try to use these solutions i got this in my book.
Dealing with System Startup Problems There's nothing scarier than turning on your computer and finding it doesn't start. What you do next depends on exactly what it is your computer is or is not doing. Let's work through some specific startup problems, and how to proceed in each instance.
Problem: Your Computer Doesn't Start—You Hear No Noises and See No Lights First things first—don't panic!
Now, very calmly, look at the back of your system unit. Is the power cable plugged in to the right connector? Now follow the power cord to the other end. Is it firmly connected to a power outlet? Now check the wall switch. Is it turned on? Now walk to your fuse or circuit-breaker box. Is the fuse good or the circuit breaker set? Now go back to your computer. If it still isn't working, unplug the computer from the power outlet and plug in something that you know works—a lamp or a radio, perhaps. If the appliance doesn't work, you have a bad power outlet. If the appliance does work, you really do have computer problems.
If you're positive that your computer is getting power and that you're turning it on correctly, you probably have a hardware problem. The most likely suspect is the power supply in the system unit. To determine the culprit and fix the problem, however, you'll need to call in professional help at this point. Take your system to a certified repair center and let its technicians get to work.
Problem: Your Computer Doesn't Start, but It Makes the Normal Startup Noises If your system is making noise, at least you know that it's getting power. Because you can rule out a bad power cord, the most common things to look for are poorly connected cables or a nonfunctioning monitor.
Begin by checking your monitor. Is it turned on? Is it plugged into a power outlet? Is the power outlet turned on? Is the monitor connected to the correct port on your system unit? Is the connection solid? Is the connection solid in the back of the monitor? Are the brightness and contrast controls turned up so that you can actually see a picture? If you have a newer monitor, try disconnecting the monitor from the computer (with the monitor turned on); if the monitor is working correctly, you should get a No Signal or Lost Signal message on the screen.
If everything is connected and adjusted properly, you might have a monitor that needs repair. Is the monitor's power light on? If not, your monitor might have power supply problems that need attention from a professional. If your monitor's little green light is on but nothing shows onscreen, the video card in your system unit might be loose or set up incorrectly. Try swapping monitors with another system; if the new monitor works on your system, your monitor is the problem. If you determine that your monitor is working fine, you should check your video card to make sure it's installed, seated, and connected properly. If that doesn't fix your problem, try plugging your video card into a different slot.
It's also possible that your keyboard isn't plugged in properly, or that you have some other internal problem that causes your system to halt during start-up. Check all your connections before you try rebooting. good luck hope i helped you.

I have a old Gateway 835gm that im trying to revive with a XFX R7 250 Graphics Card Unfortunatly, Whenever i start it up, The Gateway logo flashes for about half a second, and i get no signal.. Help?

Do you hear any beeps when the computer is turned on? How many do you hear and what sequence? Have you tried to put the computer in the hardware setup mode? Perhaps it is done by holding down Ctrl/F2 keys while turning on the computer. What are the settings for the hard drive and monitor found in the setup mode? Do you have another graphics card to try out in this computer? Try it and report back.

How do I fix my desktop computer?

That flashing LED generally means a hardware failure. Your best bet is to take it into the shop.

If you want to try to fix it yourself, open up the case, dust everything off, disconnect and reconnect all cable, pull and reseat all cards. That probably won't fix it, but it's worth a shot.

You could also try pull any cards to see if you can get the machine to boot. But chances are that you have no cards, since most modern computers have everything on the motherboard.

I think that's a pretty old model of computer, so you may just want to replace it.

Everything wont open only safe mode runs

If your operating system is windows then it is unstable.

can you manage to do restore point recovery and choose an ealier date?

try opening the computer not only from safe mode but also using minimal
drivers, domain controllers only. (most computer press F8 when starting)

If everything fails you have to reformat and re install everything.

make sure your work is saved well somewhere else
before attempting repair.

Dropped hp pavilion dv6707 now won't start up

If you dropped it when the computer was running, you probably crashed your hard drive. If this is the case, you will be buying a new hard drive and reinstalling everything.
If nothing happens when you start it, open it up and make sure all the connections are secure. You could have a loose wire. If you test all connections, then disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, power supply and video card. Then try to start it. If it's the hard drive that is the problem and it is disconnected, then you should get a message on the screen that there is no boot device or words to that effect. If you get that, turn off the computer, reconnect the hard drive and try again.

My windows crashed. When computer starts and tries to raise windows it restarts. Tried everything, can't access password protected account where important informations stored. Help

To access the data, try removing the drive from the computer and installing it as another drive. There are several external docks that accommodate drives for this purpose.
If the drive is IDE, try an IDE enclosure. If the drive is SATA you can use a SATA usb dock or an enclosure.
You could try repairing Windows using the repair mode. Tap F8 as Windows starts.
You can try booting in safe mode. To start in safe mode, tap the F8 key quickly as Windows trys to start.

Compaq presario sr1950 nx desktop - won't start

My suggestion would be to open the case and unplug everything and then plug it all back in again.
To test individual components, unplug everything but the CPU, memory, and video card to see if it starts.
Then one by one, plug the other stuff in and try starting again.

Computer not working after changing its case

Computer not working.. Is it not starting only. Have you tried cheking the wires and cables again.. and verified that everything is right.. Try to remove the case and then try to start. If it still doesn't start then it means there is some other problem and not the case...

My gateway 540 gr start for 5 seconds and turn off, the fan starts to then turn off.

Disconnect everything except for the power to the motherboard. If you turn on the computer and everything still turns off, then try another known working power supply. If the machine stays turned on then connect power to your drives one at a time with the computer off each time to see which drive is the culprit.

If everything still turns off then reseat the CPU and the memory and if it still turns off then that means the motherboard is bad and it would need to be replaced.
