Pope Posted December 3, 2009 Share Posted December 3, 2009 (edited) My pc is behaving strangely. Pushing the on/off button doesn't start it up decently anymore. The little "busy" light starts blinking, and I can feel the machine buzzing a bit (although less than it should), so there's definitely something going on, but nothing appears on the screen, and the pc doesn't make the "bleep" it normally does upon startup. To start it up, I first need to start it the normal way (which doesn't do what it's supposed to), then hold the on/off button a few seconds to turn it off, then turn it on again. And then it launches like it should. Also, what's strange is that after having turned the pc off, immediately pushing the on/off button does start the pc. So I'm guessing it has something to do with an internal battery or something. Because (I suppose) there's still some power in the pc after turning it off, it would make sense that I can start it up then. But if I wait too long, this power disappears and I must use the aforementioned method, which to be honest is quite a drag. Anyone have an idea what I can do to fix this? Edit: I might add that I always used to be able to start it up simply by clicking my mouse. Even after turning it off from Windows. Does this mean it's always been in some sort of standby? This could explain the hypothetical battery being empty. Edit2: Besides the regular on/off button on the front, there's also a power button on the back, which has been standing on 99% of the time.
