JACUSTOMER-pq2eo6hs- :

It is not working when I press the f8 key the screen goes blank

CompuGeek :

F8 will funtion when you turn on the computer and keep tapping on it then it will launch the windows advance menu.

CompuGeek :

let me know

Customer:

when I reboot the computer and I hit the f8 key repeatedly, the computer shuts down.

CompuGeek :

This does not look like a windows or a software problem.

CompuGeek :

what happens if you do not hit any key on the keyboard does the computer stay on or it shuts down too after a while.

CompuGeek :

if yes then there is a problem withe the cooling system

CompuGeek :

or else you have to replace the keyboard.

CompuGeek :

It is a hardware problem not software

CompuGeek :

so you need to check and decide

CompuGeek :

if computer is getting shut down after you turn on but not pressing any key on the keyboard that means it has a heating problem i mean the fans inside the computer is not working

CompuGeek :

second option replace keyboard if the computer shuts down after hitting any key.

CompuGeek :

Let me know if you have any question.

Customer:

If I don't hit any keys and click on icons with the mouse, it stays on. If I hit a key it goes blank and shuts down. So you mean you don't give advice on hardware problems

CompuGeek :

i do give advise on harware problems but advise will not onlyfix the problem, as we identify what part is bad and the customer has to replace the same part after you get it from the spareparts shop.

CompuGeek :

Let me know if you have any question.

CompuGeek :

the keyboard needs to be replaced to get the problem fixed

CompuGeek :

replace it asap or else the other parts or component can be effectively go bad too.

Customer:

ok so if I press accept does this mean I can't get anymore help with this and my registry problem that I can't address until the computer is fixed; that is, unless I pay another $38?

CompuGeek :

save this link to get back to me anytime

CompuGeek :
