Last updated: 14 Apr, 2017

Many times computer problems may be fixed by following this simple checklist:

·        Is the power cable plugged into the wall firmly and fully seated in the port on the back of the system unit?

·        Is the monitor turned on?

·        Is the monitor cable firmly plugged into the video port on the back of the system unit?

·        Is the monitor power cable fully seated in the port on the back of the monitor?

·        Is the power LED on the front of the system unit glowing?

·        Do you have a Flash (Thumb) Drive plugged into a USB port? If so, remove it and try to boot your computer again.

·        Do you have a CD disk in your drive?  Try removing it and try to boot again.

 

If after you’ve checked these items, your computer still won’t turn on, call for technical assistance.
