Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Answers :

Kindly duting the pc all parts in a clean coth
Hi,
I dont know if you feel comfortable opening up your computer. If you do there are 2 control wires that go from that little button on the front of the machine to the main computer board. That wire does get loose sometime and just has to be pushed back on the connector. If you can find someone who know what they are looking at it is a very easy fix that is if the button is not broken. The second thing it can be is the power supply. I dont know how old your computer is but they do break . Many people upgrade components in the computer and the supply is not rated for the additional equipment. You can find them online for about $65 or at Bestbuy and Staples. This is a bigger job but not impossible for you to do . There are many Youtube videos that can help. Hope this give you a starting point .
