Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

My pc freezes up. the only way to get it to do anything is to shut it down by holding the main power button for about 5 seconds.Then sometimes it doesn't want to start back up. I just changed the power pack in it because the fan in the old one desintegrated./ but it was having problems freezing up before that.

That old saying to check first what you just fixed might apply. If you can get into the bios I think by pressing F12 lots of machines have a hardware check where it will go through steps to see if all hardware is functioning correctly. Its F something not sure if its 12 press while booting continually.

Hope that is of some help.

How do I turn off the Samsung sync-master p2050 monitor?


If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.

My Toshiba A215-S4697 froze and I shut it off by holding the power button down. When I went to turn it back on the power light came on but the Satelitte light didn't. The screen wasn't on either and the...


it could have failed,but its more likely you have sequential procedures for the power button,like holding it down for more than 5 seconds etc--you might have just put your machine into "standby mode"--check manufacturers site for power key process--good luck!

Dell XPS M1530 trouble shutting down


Try this, just to see if the shutdown actually works.

Open a command prompt and enter the following:

shutdown -s -t 05

-s is to shutdown, -t 05 is a 5 second countdown.  Let me know if it actually shuts down.

My toshiba 1805-s74 will not turn on


Hi Russ,

Sometimes a laptop will appear in a ghost state, not off, or on if you sometimes shut it down, but close the lid too fast. Try pressing and holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. This should turn it off completely. Then give it a few more seconds and press the power button again to turn it back on.

Hope this helps!

Frozen


Hold down the power button for 5-7 seconds and it will shut the laptop off. If that doesnt work, remove the battery from the bottom of the laptop and disconnect the AC adapter.

Does not power stay on


try this with just the ac plugged in and the battery removed. Sometimes the battery, when fully discharged, can cause the system to shut down.

Freezing up - shutting off -with stuborn power button also


First clean the fans out - these get clogged pretty easily.
If it gets stuck where you cant turn it off - hold down the power button for 5 seconds.

Hopefully the system hasnt been overheating for so long it has damaged the CPU or motherboard.

If the fans are clean and it still does it, you may have a bad stick of ram or the mainboard you bought may have problems.
I would inform the company you got the mainboard installed that it is having problems right away in case you dont have much time left in warranty.

Good luck!
