Hi: my pismo (firewire running a 400 cpu because they're cheaper) won't start. it beeps 5x (1 long, 4 short or something in between), and doesn't chime. I've read posts of similar problems and tried their suggestions, it booted once by removing the pram batt & pressing apple/option/P/R but it only worked once. my pram voltage is 6.9 and 3.4 (or something close) I'm wondering how that can be a problem if the computer will reboot w/ the pram battery disconnected? Often when I press command key groups, it shuts down as if I were holding the start button down. the keyboard lights come on but the battery lights don't. yesterday before it quit, it refused to compile written code, it ran the program but some of the changes didn't take effect. also the fan doesn't seem to come on any more, I didn't notice when that began. Are there remedies?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
