While working on a dell desktop pc, windows XP, the neighborhood power went out. The PC was plugged into a surge protector, but not a battery backup. Now the computer will not startup, shows no signs of life. What is the most likely component damaged/needing replaced in this instance, or how can I diagnose at this point?
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?
