Computer wont turn on


Make sure the tower is getting power. There will be a green light on the back of the tower where the power cord goes. Make sure the cord is snug and that it is securely plugged in to your power source - I'm hoping it is a power surge strip and in which case, make sure the surge strip didn't get unplugged or turned off. If you have it plugged directly in to the wall then make sure that outlet has power by plugging something else in to it that you know works. After doing all of this, make check to see if there is a light on the back of your pc. If not, unplug the power from the back of the tower, wait 30 seconds at least, and then plug it back in. Hit the power button on the front just once, if it doesn't power up, press and hold the button in for a 2 seconds and release. If that doesn't work, your power supply may have gone bad. That happens from time to time. Good luck, hope this helps!

Pet pulled out power supply cord and now tower won't work


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have an hp m8425f and the tower won't turn on,


Remove the Power Cord, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, plug the cord back in and press the power button. If it works, you had a Static Charge Buildup that had to be released.

The end that plugs into the motherboard is probably about two inches long, Grab the release latch on it and press it while pulling up to unplug it. Wait 30 seconds then plug it back into the motherboard. Push it back in firmly.
Try turning on the system.

Pavilion Elite M9040N tower shuts down within seconds when I hit the power button. Blue light flashes 2-3 time and it shuts down. When I remove the processor ( Intel Q6600) unit stays on and when I pull...


Hi.
Before you go and get a new motherboard, first let's try to do a hard reset.

Sometimes, hp and Compaq computers bios will lock up, causing this condition.

To do the hard reset, first make sure all the cords are connected to the points where they belong.

Now, unplug your ethernet cable, and your power cord.

This stops all power from coming into the machine.

Next, press and hold the power button in for 30 to 45 seconds.

This causes the capacitors on the motherboard, and the ones in the power supply to dissipate, and returns them to a ready state.

After doing that, reconnect just the power cord and attempt to power on the computer.
If it boots, then it was the bios glitch, if not, then you have a faulty motherboard, that or you have a device installed the wrong way, so that when the system boots up, it calls for the power to that device in an unusual way, then the system will shut down to prevent damage.

If it does boot up, then you can reconnect the ethernet cable back, otherwise there is no sense of hooking it back up as you would be replacing the motherboard anyways.

I hope you have good luck with this, and have a good day.

My toshiba r10 laptop wont turn on the green power light to the front is on but the yellow battery light only comes onn when i plug in the power cord to it and it only stays about 2 seconds


Ok here's what you will do

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards
