[] If Your Computer Is Not Working, Here's What to Do



The other day, I came home from work and wanted to check my Facebook and e-mail accounts. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down at my computer, pushed the power button and nothing happened! I tried a couple more times, then checked that it was plugged into the wall – nothing. I later discovered that it was relatively easy to fix, but I had to ask a bunch of people until I managed to come up with a solution. The whole ordeal got me thinking that, if this happened to me, it must happen to many people. This is why I've created a simple guide to saving your computer.

Check that the screen is on. Most screens have a "sleep" function, which switches them off when you power down your computer to save power. The best way to know if your screen is turned off, or stuck in "sleep" mode, is to look for the power indicator. If the little light (usually at the bottom of the screen) is off, try the following:
•    Push the 'ON' button, on the screen. (Repeat after each step)    
•    Check that the screen's power cord is connected to the screen and the power socket.
(The 3 most common display cables and connectors)
•    Unplug the cord and inspect for damage.     
•    Unplug the cord from the wall and test another power outlet.     
If the problem persists, it may indicate that the screen is faulty and needs to be replaced.
•    If the power indicator is on or flashing, that means that the screen is receiving power, but did not get the "wake up" signal from the computer.
•    Check that the cord connecting the screen to the computer is plugged in at both ends.
•    Unplug the cord and inspect for damage.     
If the problem persists, it may indicate that either the cord is not working, the screen is faulty or that your computer's graphics card is not working properly – so contact a technician.
