Question about Computers & Internet
My computer won't turn on. It was working perfectly the night before. But now, when I push the power button, the pc turns on for a second and then off (the case fans, cpu fans, and cd drive turned on for a second and others). I'm not sure what the problem is. The LED light on my motherboard is on like usually. I did the paper clip test with the power supply (unplugging the power to the motherboard, and using a paper clip to connect the green wire to a black one), and the case fans were running fine. Any help would be nice. Thanks!
What you need to do is reset the bios. If it wont void a warranty..and don't blame me if you ruin your computer, even though this is completly safe.
Unplug your power supply, push thepower button to get rid of extra saved up juice, then take you side panel off and locate your cmos jumper near the battery. You need to position the jumper on 2 of the pins and keep it there for 8 secs. Then put your jumper to origional position and restart your computer. You will have to reset your time and all of your bios settings. YOu can load optimal defaults if you arn't sure what to select.
