Winbook x2 pentium. windows xp pro. Changed the cmos and was working good(see previous question about date incorrect). Tried to use recently, after sitting no power for 3 weeks. No indicator lights, does not power on even if plugged in. Checked the power cord and the converter, all get correct reading. I removed the back and found a small metal piece, 4X6 mm which looks like a broken contact point. I could not find the source. Is this traceable or is this a bust? Also, Can I remove the hard drive to prevent data corruption and recover on another computer? Can the power problem be traced without the hard drive? Thanks again in advance for any replys.
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?
