My computer isn't booting up at all.

 Share

A couple weeks ago my computer went automatically to sleep mode, as it does every day.

The next day I tried turning it on, I saw the power button flashing indicating everything is okay, and it's in sleep mode, however when I went to turn it on, no response. Nothing turned on, no fans spun no LEDs or anything, I figured I'd restart, and still nothing works.

Then I tried everything I could think of, I tried

  • Reseating the RAM
  • Disconnecting every possible cable and reconnecting
  • Turning on with nothing other then Power RAM and CPU connnected
  • Shorting the power pins
  • Reseating CMOS battery
  • Reconnecting every piece of hardware I could think of.

And still nothing happened, so I figured I still had warranty on all the parts, and sent the computer as a whole to repair. They managed to turn it on (which was weird because they said they hadn't even ran into any problems turning it on) so I went to pick it up, after seeing the computer turned on there, I went home, connected it, and it worked, then it went to sleep again...

Next day computer is doing the exact same thing, nothing turns on same as it was in the beggining, even though I basically did nothing on the computer, a very weird problem I had never heard of before.

 

Please keep in mind the repair shop is a 3 hour drive away, and I really don't want to drive all that way everytime this happens. I would like to find a permanent fix.

Thanks in advanced!

At work, we sometimes see laptops with similar issues when they wake up from sleep and this is almost always fixed by a BIOS update. 

Are you running on a older BIOS version? If yes, a BIOS update would be worth a try IMO. 

There's no place like 127.0.0.1 💙

Sorry misunderstood that, thought you were able to turn it on, just not from sleep.

It probably worked at the store as it was unplugged from the wall for a while.  Remove the Power cable, push and hold the Power button for 5 seconds, release then reconnect the power and try it.  It is probably not your plug or power bar, but the sleep state.  Update the BIOS and install the latest chipset drivers for your MB.
