Have you tried a different keyboard ? To find out if something is going on with the computer or keyboard, try another one to see if it works, if you don't have a extra one around, borrow one fron a friend.

Came home to find computer off. It was left in sleep mode. The moniter keeps saying there is no signal and the keyboard has no power.


If its truely in sleep mode, and won't come out of sleep mode. Unplug the computer from its power, hold the power button down for 5-15 sec, then wait 2-5 full minutes. Then plug it back in, and turn it on.
If that doesn't work it is NOT stuck in sleep mode. Most dell computers I've worked with the caps go out in the power supply and/or the motherboard. I would next clean out the computer with canned air, check the caps on the motherboard, and in the power supply. If there are any bad caps, replace them, and it should fix it. Hopefully though the above paragraph fixes your problem.

Gateway GM5472 won't boot no power


No power and won't boot suggest a power supply problem in the tower--it is listed as a desktop unit.

What is common on a lot of units (computer towers, TV sets, you name it) is the stand by power supply which is on 7/24 fails.

The most common reason is filter caps dry out because cheap ones and ones rated too low a voltage are used.

The beauty of this is if the power supply is removed and opened you will be able to SEE the bad ones.

I will attach a photo of bad caps--tops which should be perfectly flat are puffed up from a little to a lot and or brown material is seen at top and bottom of the cap.

I have fixed many towers (desktop units) and other equipment with this problem---most of them at first had to be turned on a few times to get them to come on--it gradually gets worse until it will not make it on.

If bad caps are found you can usually buy a replacement supply at a reasonable price or replace the puffed up caps (seen as many as 8 bad in one computer tower).

This answer is based on the information you provided in your question and the answer from personal experience.

"HP Pavilion m7580" is not


Hello,

To verify whether it's a no POST issue, press NUM LOCK or CAPS LOCK key and check whether the CAPS LOCK or NUM LOCK lights are lit or changes when you press on it. If it doesn't then it's a No POST problem.

However, if the computer screen shows the HP logo or a display then it's POSTING and is experiencing a No BOOT issue.

If the NUM LOCK or CAPS LOCK responds when you press it but there is no display, check the connection between the monitor and the CHASSIS or CPU.

If you have verified that it's a No POST issue because CAPS lock is not responding, you need to open up the chassis to do a troubleshooting procedure. Be sure to unplug the chassis to all the connections especially the power cord. Drain the power by pressing and holding the power button from 8-10 seconds.

Here are the things that you need to do after you open up the chassis.
1. Reset the Memory sticks. Connect the CHassis to the power and monitor. If no go, try turning on the computer without the memory sticks. The aim of this troubleshooting is to see a display on the screen. Any display would be a good sign. If no go. Put the memory stick back in.

2. Remove the CD drive. Turn on the computer, check for development. If no go, proceed to step 3. Just leave the cd drive removed

3. Do the same thing with the other devices like the hard drive and other devices inside. Your aim is to see a display.

Let me know if what happens and I'll get back to you.

Once you see a display. Let me know by replying to this thread.

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

Unable to locate indication of caps lock on or off


On the keyboard, there should be an area to the right top that will light up when you click the caps lock button. Typically this key is found above the shift key on the left hand side of the keyboard.

Website wont let me login from my computer but it lets me log in through my phone


Carefully check the typing of your username and password. Make sure the caps lock and num lock keys are not on. You might want to open a text editor and type into the window. Are the characters displaying properly? If not, and the num lock and cap lock keys are not enabled, try re-booting your computer. Sometimes the keyboard driver becomes corrupt and reloading solves the problem.
