With using, the computer without reason/ warning got stuck and I forced turn off the computer; then, tried to turn on again. It was not Boot. The power on, but it is stuck in there, no Boot. Help!


A couple of things spring to mind, but difficult not having the machine.

Upgrade to Windows 10 is automatic and your machine is trying to update and finding a problem. I would not load Windows 10 until Service Pack 1 comes out.

Also sounds if the processor is overheating. When you boot up, you can get into the BIOS, often by tapping Delete, or F10. There is usually a prompt onscreen during boot up. One of the screens in the BIOS tells you the processor temperature. If it rises over 60' you have a problem with cooling. The computer has a fail safe feature to save the processor by shutting down.

HELP! Acer T180 is possessed!


Have you Googled the beep codes? This is most likely your solution. You should do the RAM test on your system.


Blue Screen Of Death


  • Remove all USB attached devices.
  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC. Opening case. Remove all RAM. Use static precautions!
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best. All data will be lost.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

We have a Compaq Presario PC and we are having a problem turning it on because the last time it was used, the error pattern showed up and we had to reboot it. After we shut it down we had to start it up...


When computer is booting up, tap your function key F8 then try Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) or Safe Mode. If still doesn't work, you have format your computer. But before to format your computer don't forget to save or back up your data or documents. Good Day

Using a HP L1506 Monitor on a HP Pavilions a 867c computer and has worked, but now receiving "VGA input: no input signal" with window on monitor, followed by "Monitor going to Sleep" and it does. Worked...


First of all, boot your system without the monitor connected to it and when you feel that it's booted upto logon screen (or if you haven't assign password it'll directly logon to the desktop, power on the speaker to make sure you can know it's done) connect the monitor. If this isn't successful, please turn off the system and remove the cmos battery, leave it outside for few minutes and again reinstall it. Boot again normally. Still having the same problem? then let's try another method. Did you see the bios loading (black screen with white text during startup) when you power on the system? If so, press F8 several times while it is booting and select "Safe Mode" and restore your system to previous state. Do let me know if this isn't possible. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

I turned on my Dell Dimension 4700 computer,but the amber light started to blink . I held the start up button for 5 seconds and the light went out. I tried to start it up again and got the same thing,...


Vaughn it sounds like the power supply is going bad, try another known good working power supply. If that doesn't work then the motherboard would need to be replaced. If the power supply isn't giving the correct voltages that could cause the computer not to turn on. If the motheboard isn't able to convert the voltages properly then the motherboard could be faulty.

Computer well not boot


The computer may have done a routine software update that automatically reboots the PC when complete. HP is known for this. If it fires up when you turn it on, no worries. If its DOA then thats another issue. Best regards.

Hi,

Take out the two last cards you added and boot again.

Then turn it off and insert only one card at the time to find which one is the faulty.

Good Luck!!!

Shut down the computer. Turn it on and during the boot process hit on F8 to get into Advanced boot option (if it skips try again after restart the computer), You will see the options. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration" and enter. It will probably will resolve the issue. If issue persist please post for further assistance.

Good Luck
