Tips for reviving a dead computer

1,166

Published on

One fine morning, as usual, you press the power button on your computer and head straight to your kitchen to grab a hot cup of coffee, but on reaching back quickly (with a hot cup of coffee in your hand), eagerly waiting to check your email or to chat or to do some other important work, you find that your computer is not even on. It’s downright frustrating to see a dead computer on a busy morning, when you have something very important to do or a critical official email to be sent.

Tips for reviving a dead computer

  1. 1. TIPS FOR REVIVING ADEAD COMPUTERBy David Rowe, Techability.com.au
  2. 2. Facing a ‘Dead Computer’• It’s downright frustrating to see a dead computer on a busy morning, when you have something very important to do or a critical official email to be sent• If you are you in such a bad situation, in this presentation, I have some valuable yet easy D-I-Y (do it yourself) tips for you to tackle such a situation on your own and bring back your computer to life
  3. 3. Never assume and proceed logically!• There are many parts in your computer, some you can see and some you can’t• So the reason for not turning on may be due to one of those problematic parts or due to a very simple reason like a loose connection or a faulty power cable• But you cannot just assume the cause and conclude that the problem is minor or a major unless you have carried out a systematic check on your computer• The following steps will easily guide you to perform such a check to clearly troubleshoot the exact cause of the problem.
  4. 4. 1st Step – Switching it on again!• Before thinking of the worst possible causes, just make sure that you have actually pressed the power button on your computer• Or you were just waiting for your computer to come alive without even pressing the power button - Absent mindedly• Just press the power button again, once or twice and make sure that your computer is really not responding
  5. 5. 2nd Step – Checking power source• Check that the power source is indeed supplying the needed power for your computer to turn on.
  6. 6. 3rd Step – Checking power cable• One of the most common causes that your computer won’t turn on is a loosely connected power cable• So just make sure that the power plug is properly plugged in to the socket on the wall, with the power switched on and also the other end of cable is connected properly to the computer• If this doesn’t solve the problem, you can also try replacing the power cable itself, because at times a broken power cable can also prevent your computer from turning on
  7. 7. 4th Step – Cooling down the CPU• Another probable cause that your computer is not turning on may be due to an overheated CPU• So wait for few minutes for the CPU to cool down and try switching on the computer again
  8. 8. Conclusion• These are some of the most common causes that can prevent your computer from turning on• If any of these steps help solve the problem, well and good, otherwise it may be due to some other complex reasons like damaged parts, faulty power button, mother board, processor, memory, hard drive, CPU fan and so on• This may need a detailed examination of your computer by a trained technician• If you are not confident enough to deal with these complex parts, then it is better to approach an expert to help you with it.
