PC does not post:

· Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
· remove the ram and clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
· and re-insert them,
· swap them around if you have more than one, try one at a time.
· if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends pc ,if that's possible,
· or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
· if you can establish that the ram is ok, try a recovery /system disc's or bootable anti virus disc ,if that does not work, then it is most likely, that the motherboard or cpu has failed .
· Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the PC from posting.
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc


If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.

Computer won't wake up


ok, there could have been a graphics issue in the bios caused by the windows graphics drivers, heres what you could try........... remove the power cord from the back of the machine, remove the side panel to allow access to the motherboard, you will see a battery! take it out for 10 mins and push the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaing power from the motherboard, after 10 mins the CMOS should have cleared so you can replace the battery, plug in the power and turn the machine on hopefully you'll get a signal

good luck

My PC will only start and stay on in safe mode. When I start windows normally, it stays on for 5-10 mins then goes to a Black screen....WHY????


It may be going into sleep mode. When the screen goes black, try pressing the space bar on the keyboard to wake it up. If the computer wakes back up again, then you may need to adjust your power settings. Try it and let me know what happens.
