Assuming you havent hust pressed it and let go straight away, as that is a reset, if you have pressed and held until the pc has gone off, then there is a problem with the poer down, go to control panel>power options, click advanced button and at the bottom of the window it says when i press power button on computer, then give the instruction in the drop down list see below

    if this is correct then you need to check that ACPI is enabled in the bios, press F2 or Del on boot up and go into advanced cmos settings look foe ACPI in menu list and make sure enabled is shown for the shutdown using windows instead of pressing the button as saved work can be lost using the power off button.

Computer wont turn on

Check to see if the on/off switch is still cycling. Baby fingers sometimes push the buttons so far in that they can't pop out again. Change the switch if you can't get it to work!

Whenever i try to turn on my iphone, it freezes when it gets to the apple logo

The Iphone Does Take Awhile To Turn On.
But If It Is Rediculasly Long.
Hold The Lock Button And See If It Will Turn Off If It Does Turn It Back On . If Not
Try Holding The Home And Lock Button .
Just Wait It Takes A Minute.
And You Should Re Connect To Itunes.

Laptop power will turn on, but screen remains completely black

Sounds like a memory problem. Try turning your computer over and finding the access panel that has memory. It usually a small rectangle and may have an icon of memory. Remove the screw (usually only one on Dell's).

You should do this at your kitchen table to avoid static electricity. You will likely have 2 memory sticks in your computer (one may be on top of the other). Spread the clips that holds the memory and remove the memory. Try to keep your fingers off the metal. Remove both sticks (if there are two). Now put them back.

Plug-in your computer. Turn the computer back over, and try to start the computer. If you get the same result, you have some bad memory. The next question is which of the two sticks.

Unplug your computer and remove one of the sticks and try starting again. If it starts, you know that the memory removed was bad. If it does not start, try the other stick of memory and try starting.

If you find the bad stick of memory, all you need to do is get new memory. You can go to one of the memory websites and it will test your machine and determine what memory you need.

Hope that helps.

No HDMI Signal from my PS3 and it works on other monitors. Help?

I'm guessing it's the PS3.

When you turn on the PS3, HOLD down your finger on the power button (the one that turns it on/off, NOT the switch in the back) until you hear a second beep while the console is turning on.

It will completely reset your display settings. I have an HDTV and a HDMI, and whenever I switch from one to the other I HAVE to do this or I get no video on screen.

What is happening when you press the power Button? Do you see any ligths, Any HDD moves? IF DOES.

TURN OFF by pressing and holding your finger on power button.
wait 60 sec. turn on and repeatedly press several times at F8 button.
If page opens on black and white, Use SAFE MODE.
wait til all line down. Then you will see windows opening in safe mode.
WHat ever you install last, remove, scan your computer for virus,spyware. when its finished, check your computer if need defragmentation. by Accessories>System Tools> Defragment.
If message comes such as windows will do this at schedule time or so.
Just turn off your computer using shotdown option (NOT BROWN BUTTON ON START) go to next arrow.
then turn on again see if windows comes back.

BIG problem. PLZ help!!! :(

The Samsung YP-F1 has a reset button located under the black Samsung cover plate. It can be gently removed via a finger nail or mini flat blade screwdriver. Once plate is removed a hole labeled reset will be seen. Use something like a paper clip and press in. MP3 will power down/reset. MP3 data is also retained after reset.
