- If your computer hasn’t turned on at all and still lets you push the power button, and turns the lights and fans on but you can’t see anything but a blank screen, then it certainly needs the fix. Some of such cases can be solved by clearing the capacitors. Sometimes, unplugging the PC and pushing the power button about ten times can clear any extra electricity from the computer that may have caused the issue. A way is to plug your PC back in and power it on again. It might be amazing to see that how often doing his can fix your problem. However, if it doesn’t solve the issue then it might have some serious hardware issue and you would have to take it to the computer shop for replacing the effected part such as RAM or power supply.
- In other situations where the fans and lights of the computer may turn on but the computer itself fails to respond means that the computer BIOS has been corrupted. The BIOS can perform a number of tasks but in such cases, it helps the computer turn on and initialize each piece of hardware of the computer. However, the BIOS can be the most dangerous part of your computer and trigger different problems during the computer power is on if it becomes self-aware.
