Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
There is something that is not letting the computer boot up to the desktop and there has to be a hardware issue since the light on the computer tower is yellow.So you can try these steps to correct the issue .Turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices leaving just the cables for the mouse ,keyboard mouse and the power cable .Then disconenct the power cable from the back panel and then with the cable disconnected press and hold the power button for 30 seconds Connect the cable back and then turn the computer on and see what happens .
The next thing that you need to do is disconnect all the external devices and then open up the computer tower , then you need to locate the memory cards(Ram) once you locate it remove it and then turn the computer on you should hear long beeping noise which indicated that the motherboad is fine adn if ther is no beep noise then it tells us that the mother board has gone bad which either needs to be replaces or serviced.
If you hear the beeping noise then either the hard drive or the memory card id not functioning so please contact a local technician or take it to the store to get it serviced.
all the best

The issue that you are facing seems that the POST (Power On Self Test) is not running and computer seems to be where it was. The issue leads to faulty or drained out power source to BIOS chip. All you need to do it to open the lid of your computer and located coin cell on the motherboard. Take it out from the cell slot softly by using the slot lever and replace it with the same numbered coin cell. Most of the time it will be of number 2032 which you can get from market easily (mostly available with watch repairing stores). The whole process is simple but if you are confident enough, you can call someone who knows how to replace motherboard's coin cell.
Once the cell is replaced your computer will start normally but you will have to adjust the date and time.
