My wife has a presario that had a similar problem - it would boot up, then immediately shut down. I took off the side plate and blew off some of the dust inside. that worked for a couple of days then the symptoms returned. I took it apart again but this time I removed the cpu fan and the cpu heat sink. I cleaned all the **** off the fan and the heat sink and replaced it. this time it stayed on. I checked out the power supply. compaq installed a very cheap power supply - only 250 watts. a replacement power supply for the same machine but with an output of 300 watts is available. as soon as I can scrape up the change, I'm gonna change the PS

Wont come out of sleep mode


hi ck leapfrog,

thry this method done through about.com

right click on desktop > properties > screen saver > click on power > set the time u want your monitor to turn off ( but with the pc on ) and the hard disk also, but i would suggest give it more time with the hard disk.
and standby mode, i think it's what you want, it turns off the whole computer but if you touched anything, it will turn back on.
hibernate closes the computer completely but it's same like standby, coz the application will still be running and all.
about the welcome/login screen, click on advanced tab > under options, uncheck prompt for passport when computer resumes.

hope this helps.

regards,

voodoo

My pc wont turn on pakard bell pentium 4


The system is looking for the hard drive and can't find it. Open the side panel and make sure the cables are connected securely to the drive and the motherboard. The clicking noise is an indication of a bad drive. Good luck!

My Fujitsu siemens will not turn on, it goes straight to standby and nothing comes on the screen


Hey,

Try unpluging the computer for a while, try again. Its best to get someone to come over or take the pc to someone, there is not much we can do over the internet.

Thanks,
