  1. Hi,
    My computers been doing this lately. Ill go to turn it on, and it turns on, like the lights and fan go on, but when i turn on the screen, nothing comes on the screen and the screen goes idle as if it wasnt getting a signal. Also my keyboard has LED's on it that would turn on when the computer goes on, but they dont turn on. Soo basically the computer is unresponsive soo ill have to hold the button and turn it off.
    The wierd thing is ill turn it off by using the button and it would do the same thing if i would try to turn it on. But if i leave it alone for a day or soo, it will turn on normaly.

    any ideas?

    It is a Hardware fault for sure.
    Check with the OEM vendor or local tech.
    And when you do it get the BIOS updated, also get the memory checked and your graphic card as well.
    I am sure of these three things are checked and updated then it will boot fine.
    Try booting in Enable VGA mode in advance boot menus to check if it is a graphic card fault. But get these three things done.

    Try also checking your power supply. I've had similar problems in the past and found out that my power supply was at fault.
