Question about HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC Desktop
Hi. My HP IQ770 TouchSmart will not stay powered on. Everything seems fine, all lights and fans on and I can get a disk into the CD drive (and eject it), but the unit only stays on for around 20 seconds before closing down - almost as if the power button has been held in. Have read lots about the Seagate hard drive issues, but this one is the 7200.10. It would make sense for it to be a HD issue, the screen appears to be fine and lights up white but with no content. Can anybody help?
