It's possible that the power switch itself has failed. If you can remove the front cover and activate the switch with a pen or similar, you may get results. There could also be a short in the soft power circuitry. Often dust will accumulate inside the case or the power supply, and prevent the machine from responding to a power-on button press. If unplugging temporarily doesn't help, I suggest opening the case and using compressed air to clean as much dust as possible out. Be sure to discharge any static from yourself by touching a ground (like the metal of the case) before opening the machine.

Pull the mains plug from the back for about 10 seconds. Try again. Most modern powersupplies have a built-in cutoff when there are power spikes. If it was off and a spike occured, it may have locked it up.

Chevy cavalier z24 theft system light on


This is a easy fix. Lucky just follow the procedure and your car will start. This is a theft system shut down.
The procedure is. Disconnect battery for a minimum of 30 seconds. ( one post is OK. )
Reconnect battery and get in the car and start as usual 1 time only. When it starts and stops letthe key just return to run position as if it was running. Do not shut it off and if you do you must stert the procedure all over again. i usually put on the emergency brake before i start and that shuts of the driving lights etc.
Just leave the key in on running position and go have a coffee. it takes 15 to 20 minutes for the car to recycle the system. When you come back to the car the flashing theft light will either be off or solid.
Try to start again. If it doesn't go shut it off and turn back on and start as usual. It will start and run and stay running.
The reason you have this problem is something electronic was disconnected whe the battery was hooked up. always disconnect the battery before you touch anything electronic and you will not have this problem.

Restart unexpctedly


More than likely your computers are having a driver conflict or a piece of hardware has malfunctioned.

Holding the F8 key down during the boot process should allow you to enter safe mode to troubleshoot.
