My pc is shutting down and I can't wake it up without shutting down the power from power supply. The Antec 300 tower has two blue lights- the top light starts blinking when it has shut down and I

sounds like a power supply problem

Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

hope this helps

How can i install dill to my laptop? there is a message dill is missing!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say what you meant to say was "dll" as in dynamic link library, and this depends on which ones you are missing. Typically you will have to re-install the program that is giving you the error message. If all else fails when you get the message again take note of the full file name "filename.dll" and do a Google search for it as a standalone file. If you go this route be aware that there are dangers and scan the file for viruses before copying it to your system folder.

Won't boot up.

You have a virus that is about to shut down the hole computer to where you can't even get on it. I would tell you just to reinstall windows to fix it 99% of the time that is the fix.

Monitor shuts off of the computer then stays on then goes off .

Does it shut off with absolutely no warning sounds whatsoever?

Do you ever hear a faint PC beeper alarm that kinda sounds like a ambulance siren (you know... kinda like a WEEEE. ORRRRR... WEEEE... ORRRR)

My main suspect at this stage is OVERTEMP (you are overheating the CPU).

Possible Causes: Recently UPGRADED components (especially VIDEO)

Build up of dust in Case and CPU heatsink and GPU heatsink or CPU fan has failed or one or some case fans have failed.

Do you know how to check your CPU temp in BIOS? If it happens again check it out.... greater than 90 degrees is usually bad.

Check all your fans are spinning, check you don't have 'caked up' dust on your heatsinks.

If you have recently upgraded a major component that is dumping heat into you case... investigate a new case fan to extract this heat (cheapest option) or you may want to pick up an aftermarket CPU heatsink and fan (Thermalright FTW!!!!!!!)

I installed mostly everything but it turns on for 2 second and shuts down i think i shortaged something out

First Thing I would try is another power supply, this is the easiest and most major cause of pc power problems. Also you can usually take your pc to big name computer stores they will diagnose this issue for free so they can get you to spend tons of money having them put in one. but I would definitely do this first., It is not unusal for a power supply to be DOA

Front panel audio connection to asus pk5 se mobo

Hi Tracybow,

The Front Panel Audio connection should have a couple of wires to plug in into your MotherBoard. Usually, the connectors are named and all you need to know is the exact location in your MotherBoard.
I would suggest you to visit your MotherBoard manufacturer and download the manual for your MoBo. You will find in the manual a diagram of the MotherBoard which shows the location for those wires.

Hope this helps.

Best regards

Webroot antispyware not sweeping


if you are using webroot antispyware software on the computer. you have 2 resolution for that.

1. if you have a CD then you can uninstall and reinstall it before that disconnect the internet connection.

2. If your are downloading it online then the only thing is first try to download a different antivirus for the time being and then you can uninstall webroot from the cmptr and then you can download it again and then you can uninstall the antivirus which you installed for the time being.

this will resolve the issue.

Flashing Lights when powered down

The flashing LED is because your system is in "sleep" mode. By default windows Vista puts your computer in sleep. What this means is it doesn't shutdown the power completely it leaves a little going through certain computer components (more specifically the ram) to speed up the boot time when the power button is pressed again.

In XP a the default shutdown scheme is a complete shutdown where power is turned off after the shutdown process is done. If you are using XP you are putting your computer to sleep when shutting down.

As for the boot problem. Newer motherboards have an LED on the actual board to indicate that it is receiving power. If it is of either the power supply switch (at the back of the case) if off or the motherboard connection is loose and the shaking makes it fall into place. (Shaking is usually not necessary and indicates a problem...)

There are a few possibilities I can deduct from your description:
  • the connection from your power supply to your motherboard isn't properly seated and is causing this
  • the power supply switch (not the case switch) is being  turned off and results in the computer taking a few seconds before the internal LED become solid
  • ... the dreaded sign that the power supply is failing and is on it's last legs...
My suggestion is to check all connections and if that doesn't work borrow a power supply from a friend and swap them to see if it boots properly.

(If a friends with a spare power supply isn't an option a local PC repair shop should be able to help you out... but probably for a fee...)
