Booting Issues

  1. Hello, I bought a new computer about a month ago and it's been working great. This morning I turned my computer on and the lights flash, and fans start moving, but the computer doesn't go through the normal boot process. I get 0 visual on screens as the computer doesn't even make it to the initial check. Just out of curiosity I unplugged the hard drive, and nothing different happens. Does anyone have any idea what can be causing this? The mother board I have has an on board bios reset button, and I tried pushing it but it didn't help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hmm. It might be best to return it under warranty, as it has a HardWare issue.

    But just in case:

    Pull out the back power cord
    Hold the ON button in for 30 secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
    Put the power cord back in securely
    Turn on

    Still the same?
    Return under warranty
