My system configuration:
Compac PresarioProcessor - 2.40 gigahertz AMD Athlon64Memory - 512 MB200 GB hard drive
My operating system:
Windows XP w/SP2
I was out of town all week; however, while using our PC Mon evening, a loud clunk noise from the tower; the screen went black; and when the screen came back up, everything was stretched out horizontally and concave.
Hubby tried booting it up it did come up with the image all broken into blocks and stretched horizontally and concave. He said it did give him a screen asking about a system restore and he did set it back a couple of days.
It worked for a short time and started blinking black off and on with the screen having all the previous distortions. He turned it off and tried booting it up again and it was dead as a door nail. Currently, we cannot get it booted up and there are no lights of any kind that will show up -- even our cable modem will not light up.
It sounds like it got fried somehow. Does anyone here have any clues as to whether it might be repairable?
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?
