Question about HP Pavilion a450n PC Desktop
I have an HP a350n. I'm not sure when it started, but before it happened while I was on the computer the graphics on the screen got all distorted. Shortly after that the computer shut itself off and I got the Warning pc entering power save moded. I shut it off and left it alone and tried to start it and it worked, but only for a few minutes. Once I got it to turn on again I went into the control panel and changed all the power save options to never. After that I took the cover off and air cleaned the dust out of the inside and I replaced the battery in it. It still wont turn on. I unplugged everything except the keyboard, mouse and monitor, I unplugged the pc then pushed the power button. I plugged it back it, and still nothing. It sounds like it is doing something and the little yellow light at the bottom flashes, but nothing. It never gives me an opportunity to push f1 or f8. Everyonce in a while I can get it to work, but like i said, not for very long befoer it craps out on me.
