COMPUTER DOESN'T STARTUP!!!
Posted on 2001-07-29
Hi, my computer is about a year and a half old. It is a celeron 400 MHz w/ 256 mb ram on an Abit BM6 motherboard.
Sometimes when I turn on the computer (monitor and tower), they both turn on ok, however the monitor stays blank and black. Also the tower's 'active' (orange) light stays on, so I think it's loading, but it's not. So therefore i have to shutoff all the power to the computer. I then wait a few seconds, and turn on all the power and try it all again. Afterwards it will work.
But I know that this can't be normal, and how do i prevent it?
Or what's wrong?
