Re: Computer wont start.

Maybe you have a faulty Power Cord try replacing that first. Secondly check your powersupply's Fan if its turning. Lastly check your power button maybe its defective.

Alarm sounds when switching on

Alarm? Try this, Unplug the computer from the AC, wait a few mins. and plug into AC, try to boot normally. You didn't supply the Model of the computer or the OS you are using. It may be a PSU? Unplug from AC, Try to reseat the Memory Mods, remove the CMOS battery and reinstall. Maybe this will help:

It is stuck in power saver mode tried every thing can not get in come back up. Tried turning off and on, unpluged and pluged back in, put in cd, tried starting in safe mode with F8 key.

Possible that it's caused by a faulty hardware

1. Remove all the connection at the back of your computer
2. Power cycle your computer tower by pressing the power button for 15 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back in and monitor cable at the back of your computer tower (if it turned on, meaning that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer is the one's causing the problem, for you to pin point the problem, try plugging it one-by-one and turn on the computer each time you plug a device)
4. If it keeps on doing that, open up your computer tower (be careful to unplug the power cord and power cycle it to avoid static electricity)
5. Reseat the video card, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
6. Reseat the IDE/Sata cable of your hard drive and try to make sure it's properly plugged in, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
7. Reseat the memory, turn on the computer and test it again if the same thing
8. If you have 2 memory chip inserted in your computer tower memory slot, remove the other one and turn on the computer, do the same thing to other memory and each slot
9. Reseat the CPU and start the computer.

Computer does not come on

If you are certain that the power receptacle is energized, the next step is to check the voltage output of the power supply. You need to open the computer and test the P/S output leads with a voltmeter

Start button flashes yellow - will not turn on

I have found that if the CMOS battery is removed and the unit unpluged for 5 mins (reseting the unit to default config) It will restart. The battery should not be replaced thus to maintain your date and time settings, it shoud not be unpluged for long periods.

Computer won't come out of sleep mode.

If you are running windows vista and it is actually asleep or hibernating,Ctrl + Alt + Del should do it.It's the only way,I have found other than turn the feature off.

No power

Kindly check the cable that is put in your PSU or on/off switch. Maybe you accidentally put it off. If you have Multi Tester you can check the PSU (Power Supply Unit) if there is conection in your PSU.

Computer won't start up!

Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
