Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

I have a 2008 Compaq with Microsoft Vista and when I powered it off and tried to turn it on a couple of day's later it would not power back on. What can I do to fix this problem.


Answers :

Nine times out of ten this problem is caused due to your power supply going out. So what you need to do is go out and buy a new power supply for your computer. However if it is a laptop then either your battery is going out or your power cord is going out and not charging the battery.

Faulty Monitor? I bought one of these Xerox flat panel 19 inch monitors to replace my convention Sony unit about 4-5 months ago. It has worked just fine until about 7 days ago.
