Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My on off switch on HP tower is problematic

\015 I have a Media Center HP PC m7170n unit - and the on off button in the morning is causing me problems. I talked to hp - got rid of a lot of programs that were trying to open up at the same time thinking this is what was causing the issue - so did a clean up.But this morning still the same problem - so I think it's the on off button of the computer that is the problem. It takes about 4 times before it starts up - it will turn on and go to the blue screen and stop it just sits there - nothing is turning or churning so to speak. I hope this makes sense appreciate any insight - or suggestions - are we at the end of something or are we just at a point of having to replace this puppy. The unit is about 2-3 years old - can't remember exactly whenI bought it. probably closer to three years old now.\015

Try defraging your hard drive.This takes a while when using windows defrager. There is softare you can get that is a lot faster. I have one but they don't have the free one anymore. Of course you can do it while you sleep.
I'm using one computer that i'm using that is a 1994 so hang in there.
