Hi ,

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

SOURCE: I have an hp desktp that was working fine but now

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.
Cheers!

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times


Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

I have an hp m8425f and the tower won't turn on,


Remove the Power Cord, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, plug the cord back in and press the power button. If it works, you had a Static Charge Buildup that had to be released.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.If the above two steps fail, pull the main power plug that comes out of the power supply and plugs into the motherboard. The end that plugs into the motherboard is probably about two inches long, Grab the release latch on it and press it while pulling up to unplug it. Wait 30 seconds then plug it back into the motherboard. Push it back in firmly.
Try turning on the system.

With new charger and batteries my dv9205us does not boot. The light glows at the plug but nothing else (charge,disk etc) lights. Pushing the button does nothing. I have done a hard reset. Hard drives...


The RAM may not be working.
Try removing the RAM module/s and and cleaning the gold contacts with methylated spirits then replace the RAM module/s. If the computer still does not boot, then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test your RAM.

Cannot turn off monitor


It is problem with power settings. Start/Control Panel/Power Options -- and then pick a Power Scheme from the drop down list and make whatever modifications you want to the settings that power down your monitor

Dimension 3000 won't fully boot with yellow light


Dell gives free tech support forever. If you are out of warranty, you pay the cost of parts; but they will give you the help you need. Just get the "tag number" from the cabinet before you call.
