Computer wont turn on

I usually have my computer on hibernate, then when i came back to it today, the power light was blinking, like normal, so i moved the mouse to restart it, and nothing happened. i tried to turn it on with the power button and still nothing. so i turned off the power and tried again, but this time it shorted out and the light wont even turn on. everything else is working EXCEPT for my compaq tower. is there anyway to reboot it or will i need to bring it to a computer place to get it fixed? and if so what am i looking at as far as cost goes?

Hi Jessica,

Hibernation mode usually turns the computer off but saves any work. Then you would start it back up by hitting the power button, it will boot up and you log in like normal and the computer should be as it was before it went into hibernation.

If you can't get it out of hibernation by pressing the power button, try holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. The laptop may actually still be on, and holding the power button will cut if off. Once the computer is back on you can change the battery options(hibernation/turn off settings) in Windows by going to the bottom right task bar and right clicking on the battery icon. Normally you will have an option like "power saving settings", "battery settings". In this setting window you can turn off hibernation due to inactivity.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,
G33k

You might have put the computer into hibernate; have you tried pressing the power button? It should wake the computer up if it is asleep or hibernating. It is also possible that your monitor cable is unplugged.

Unplug it and then blow a hairdryer at the power supply for 3 minutes. Leave the lid on, just blow the hairdryer at it from the outside. Craziest trick I ever saw.

After that, turn off hibernation. And eventually, replace your power supply.

Normally the monitor will resume when the computer resumes. Under normal circumstances when the computer has gone into hibernation a brief press of the power on button will awaken it without shutting down the computer. If this doesn't work then you need to check your hibernation settings.
