Hi, and thank you for asking your question.

Are you looking to reset the computer back to factory defaults, and create and use a new account itself?

If so, is the computer using Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 10?

Please reply back using the box below. Thank you.

Tech Support Specialist: Bryan, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

OK. Now, please disconnect the power supply from the CPU, and disconnect the monitor as well.

Done that, press and HOLD down the Power button for atleast 30 seconds, and then release the button.

Done that, re-connect the power supply and the monitor, and turn it back on. Does it power on this time?

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
