Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Not turning on
\015 I have put together a pc at home using a Gigabyte GA-VM800PMC m/b, E2200 processor and 1Gb DDR2 667 memory. I have connected all hardware. turn it on and there is no signal going to the monitor. I don't get the traditional beep when u first push the on button and the HDD light is solid on all the time. help??\015
You have no signal going to the monitor because your system is not passing the POST (power on self test). This particular board only supports DDR2 533, 667 won't work according to http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2471

Notebook does not boot up at once when turned on. Dell logo does not appear but the power button is lighted. However if you turn it on and let it stand 5 minutes and then turn it off and then turn on again, the laptop turns on immediately and works perfectly. The problem comes back only if you turn off the laptop for a long time because when you just turned it off and then turn it on right away, it turns back on smoothly. It is like you need to warm up the laptop first for 5 minutes before it wi

We leave our computer turned on at night but we turn off the monitor. The last two weeks when we have turned on our monitor in the morning it will show the desktop but when we move the mouse the monitor will click and go black. We turn the monitor off and back on and will again see the desktop but again when we move the mouse the monitor will turn black. Again we will turn the monitor off and back on and usually after the second time it will work but a few times it has taken a third time of turn
