Clear your CMOS by removing the CMOS battery for a while. Then put the battery back. Start your PC and enter the BIOS and reset it to system defaults.

You could also try to "Reseat all internal components" meaning mainly PSU connections, CPU and RAM. Sometimes there is a static build-up rendering your component unable to respond and to function properly. If you reseat it, you remove the static and it should function again.

If all fails, then either your CPU, MB or your PSU is faulty. Ley me know what the PC does as soon as you've tried the above mentioned techniques. Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem.

SOURCE: Fan works randomly....when it's not working plug

Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank

Is that a SATA drive? Try plugging it into another desktop computer. You will need to change SECURITY SETTINGS for the users folders in order to access the data. I can help you going as far as possible in this case.

HP home computer will not turn on


i guess the problem is there in the power supply i.e, smps of your cpu. change it and check whether it turns on. if your pc fails to start after changing a new smps then the problem should be your motherboard.

Projector turns on the power light flashing and lamp light solid


Here's the fix: Take off the top cover of the projector. Unplug the wire leading from the two fans in the back of the unit to one of the circuit boards in front of you. Just trace one wire from fan to board. Unplug at board. Turn unit on and it will again turn on, show HP splash screen and then shut down, like it should, because the fans are now disabled. After it completly shuts down, plug the fan wire back into the board. Turn the unit back on and, presto, its working again. It will not turn off.

Try it!

Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly


Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe

Canon LV-S1 New bulb but won't power up


Have you cleaned the filters? In this situation, the fan and power shuts down even before the bulb lights up and heats up the unit, but perhaps the unit can detect clogged filters.

You can download the manual here if you don't have one. Instructions for cleaning the filters are on page 37.
