A friend's PC is not starting, when the button is pressed the light flashes as though on standby, but nothing on screen. Any suggestions, please?
Desktop or Laptop? OS
Desktop, OS not known.
open the case and check all connections, especially those plugged into the motherboard. Take out and reseat the ram. Unplug any thing connected to the rear except keyboard and mouse.Power up.If that does not fire up.Take out IDE and SATA cables off the motherboard. Use one stick of memory and take out any add on cards except the graphics card if fitted.
If it does not get past the button, Motherboard or CPU is up the spout. You could try a PSU but I think the above is your problem
If its a Old computer Try a new Motherboard Battery
Thanks for the suggestions, I shall pass them on. I'll be back in a while.
It was the PSU, all OK now, thanks.
good at least its working
