The other night, an automatic update came in. Afterward, the computer shutdown and would not start back up. At first, when I pressed the power button it would turn green. Soon after, it only turned yellow. Any thoughts?

Welcome to JustAnswer!

What is the make and model of your computer?

Do you get anything on the display when you turn it on?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Gateway 700S PC. No, the computer will not power up to even see a display.

 

Tech Support Specialist: namstech, Electrical Engineer replied 8 years ago

Have you checked if the monitor is properly connected to the computer and is powered up.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes, the monitor is NOT the problem! The computer ie. the tower, the box, the CPU will not power up. Without the CPU powered up it is impossible to get a display on the monitor.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
