What to do When Computer won’t Turn ON?

Just imagine, you just reach your Office and turn on your computer but will be shocked to see that your computer won’t turn on? It’s really awful to start a day like this, isn’t it? Well, there could be variety of causes that could lead to such issues. Don’t panic, in many cases the solution will be very simple. This guide helps you in troubleshooting this most common problem that keeps your computer from turning on. Below are some of the tips that might help you in fixing this problem...

Check connections: When your desktop computer shows nothing when you turn ON your computer then first check whether the power cable is securely plugged in to your computer as well as into a working power outlet. Most of the time this will solve the computer start up issue.

Check if your computer behaves unusually: Look out if your computer makes any unusual noise or beep. Also, make sure whether the fans on your computer work when you turn your system on and check to see if the screen is blank, blue or if nothing displays. Observe your PC and take measures accordingly.

Look out for a Surge Protector: In case your computer is plugged into a surge protector then check out whether the surge protector has a reset switch that you can push. If it does not have a reset switch then the problem is with the surge protector, hence try replacing it. If there is reset switch then try plugging a lamp or other device into one of the surge protector's outlets to make sure it's working.

Check Drive for any disk: When your monitor and computer both have power but still your computer displays an error message stating "Non-system disk or disk error” then just check out and make sure you didn't leave any disk in the A: drive. In any case this if you have left then eject the disk and restart the computer.

Use a boot disk: If these don’t work, then get a boot disk and reboot your system just by following the steps provided on it. In many of the cases where the computer won't start, a boot disc can help you immensely.

Connect the hard drive to another computer: If none of the above tips help you, then eject your hard drive from the computer and attach it to any other uninfected, healthy and working computer. Here you can fix any issues pertaining to the hard drive like removing the viruses and malware, repairing the errors etc.

Many a times, the problem might be bit hard hence would need some repair process to be taken. Under such circumstances before starting any process recover your entire data from the computer hard drive that does not turn ON using Remo Recover Windows / Mac software. This is because, once the repair process begins, there are chances of overwriting your data, reinstalling OS etc. that leads to permanent loss of your data. Hence, with the aid of this efficient recovery software recover hard drive files back and save it on any external drives and then start the repair process.
