Won't turn on.

Hello, I was working on my machine, when it just shut down, I could not move my mouse, and just a box was on my monitor saying something about power being shut down, so I turned it off, and now it will not turn back on. I took off the back and checked and cleaned it out, wow, what a mess, anyway, I hooked it all back and still nothing, I have been having trouble with the big fan coming on a lot before this happened, when I ran my card games, or whenever a program would start up. It had happened earlier in the day with my granddaughter, and I just shut it off and it came right back on, but that night, I was playing a mean game of pinucile when it was just gone. Can you tell me what happened? Please.

    I did all that and still nothing, I was on the computer when it shut down, however earlier that day it did the same thing so I shut it off and it came right back on, but the big fans were running all the time. Then I was playing a game and it shut down again, this time I can not get it to turn back on. I have cleaned it out, (boy was it a mess.) I checked all the fans and they are turning free, I pushed all the wires to make sure they were all connected. etc.. I am thinking it is a power supply problem, or could it be my Help

This sounds like the CPU is overheating. Have you opened up the box and cleaned it out with canned air (or a vacuum in reverse to blow air works as well)?

They say to err is human, but to really mess things up takes a computer. Nothing is more frustrating than to have a computer freeze, shut off with no warning, or, worse, crash completely. One of the more common errors a PC will give you is the freezing of the monitor. With a few simple troubleshooting tips, you can overcome that.

Press Crtl-Alt-Delete (at the same time). This will give you a box generally used to terminate programs. Using the arrows, if you can, shut down all programs running (i.e., Word, Internet Explorer, etc.). Sometimes, it is an error within the programs or with your computer trying to process them all at once that causes your computer to freeze. This is especially true if you have low RAM (anything less than 500 or so MB or RAM). Turn off your computer and restart it. Many times this will end whatever error up above was causing it to drag. If the computer is still frozen when it comes back on, go on to the next steps. Press the tower's power button and hold on to it until the entire system shuts down. Turn off the main power switch and turn it and the computer back on. Sometimes a computer only looks like it is shutting down, but in actuality is not. This should solve the problem. If it doesn't, move on to the next steps. step 4. Try a different mouse. If you have a mouse that connects to a PS2 port, the mouse could be bad. If the mouse doesn't work in that port, the port may be bad, too. Many times people only think their computer is frozen, but really the mouse doesn't work. step 5. Try connecting a USB mouse into a USB port. If it works, you now know that either your PS2 mouse or port are bad. If you have a USB mouse to begin with, try connecting it into another USB port, since the original port may be bad. Try Steps 4 and 5 for the keyboard as well. Take it to a computer doctor, or to the technical department at the store where you purchased it. If none of the above work, you have a bigger problem on your hands. Your computer may be in the initial stages of crashing.

Hello..just moved my desk top to new desk..everything is fine..but mouse won t work..while it was unplugged i cleaned keyboard..monitor with soft cloth..can u tell me why my mouse won t work


IF it's a serial mouse (meaning green round connector) it's probably not plugged in correctly. Now these are not plug and play so you need to reboot your system in order for it to work. Try that.

Monitor in sleep mode


This problem could be caused by windows or the monitor .You need to hook up your monitor to another computer and see if you get the same response. If you do check and see in the owners manual if there is a control for power management.Find the control and try to adjust it, or turn it off. If all this does not work than you need to take the monitor in for servicing. If the monitor works,you may have a problem with the computer bios or windows itself. Check all power management controls in the bios and window settings and see if you can find the problem.Check the Microsoft website for this problem with your operating system and a solution. Hope this helps.

Sounds like its simply going into power save mode. Does your screen come back on when you move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard? Is the computer still on? Check your power options in control panel.

Monitor Turns Black - Won't turn back on when moving mouse


It is probable that the ROM system, called BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), is set to not wake your computer by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard.

I do not know which BIOS your computer is running so I can only give a general answer.

When your machine is starting up, look for a message that says "Press F2 to enter BIOS" or something like that. Your machine may have a different F key assigned to enter BIOS.

There should be a setting in there that allows you to change the values for waking the monitor. It should say something like "Use keyboard and Mouse to wake up computer", it won't say those exact words, but something like that. If the value is set to disabled, then enable it. Then save your changes and exit (Usually by pressing F10)

Be careful when in BIOS. Changing settings you do not understand can make your computer behave erratically or stop functioning altogether.
