My Computer Won’t Start. What first steps should I take?
- First, don’t fret. It may be an easy fix. Make sure your plug or AC Adapter is plugged in and secure in the back of your
computer. Maybe it is loose.
- Secondly, make sure the other end of your power cable or charger is securely in a wall socket or power strip. Try another outlet in case one outlet is bad.
- Press the power button again. Maybe you’ll get lucky this time.
