PC has no power?
If your PC is not powering on, before filling in our form for support, it would be best to check a few things over.
Firstly ensure that the power cable is firmly in the back of the PSU at the back of the PC,
as they are new sometimes they can be tight and need a good push to get into place.
Also ensure that the on/off at the back where the mains is connected is on.
Check if the fans inside the PC are spinning and check to see if you can see any LED's at all inside the PC.
There is no harm in checking inside the PC also, all cases side panels will remove easily.
If you remove the left side looking from the front then you will be able to see inside, check the main connections from your PSU to the motherboard:
If all appears attached, it may be that the on/off switch has a problem, the PSU has failed, or the CPU has become uhsettled in transit.
To get information on how to resolve this, open a ticket using the "Contact Support" button.
PC has power but no display?
If you have power, so all fans spin, LED's light up, but there is no display,
the most common solution offered by support is that you are plugging into the wrong connection on the back of the PC :)
So firstly check the back of the PC, if you have vertical and horizontal display connections, you need to plug into the horizontal ones:
If you have checked that you are plugged into the correct connection as above, you get power, but no display, then it may be best to check that the RAM and Graphics card have not become unsettled in transit. If you have had the PC working and suddenly you get no display, it can be down to a variation of heat and a reseat is advised, see below on how to reseat your RAM then your graphics card:
If you remove the left hand side panel looking from the front, you will see the RAM, if you have multiple sticks you can try individually.
if you have just one stick you can reseat it. It is best to have the PC laid down for this.
There will be a clip on the top to release the RAM, it only fits in this way and you can use any slot, try this and let us know how you get on, if you remove the PC and turn it on you should get a beep code, confirm this also:
When you fit RAM, have the PC laid down, the top clip will need to be open, then line it up at the bottom notch first, then the top notch, do not push it.
Once it is in place, then with your thumb give it a firm sharp push at the bottom first, then the top, when you do the top one, the clip should go back and you should hear a click.
GRAPHICS CARD RESEAT
If you remove the left hand side panel looking from the front, locate the graphics card and you will see that it will have 1 or 2 screws holding it in place. (SEE 1)
Once these are removed you can then release the card using the clip on the slot (SEE 2).
There may also be a power connector to the graphics cards. (SEE 3). Once removed you can reseat it back in place.
My PC has no Wireless?Firstly check your order and ensure that you included Wireless. We generally advise that you use a cable for stability.
If you have Wireless internally then you will have connectors for your Antenna's, these may be seperate so ensure you attach these first:
Now it would be best to check that you have no issues in device manager, search "Device Manager" into Windows search, look at this list of devices and check for any yellow ! or ? You should see your Wireless adapter within the Network Adapters section, you should now be ready to check your network status in Windows.
No Internet Access
Check that you have no issues in device manager, search "Device Manager" into Windows search.
Look at this list of devices and check for any yellow ! or ?
Check your router and ensure other devices are connected all ok.
Check the status of the network on the bottom taskbar, hovering over should say "internet Access" if all is ok.
My Start Menu's are not working in Windows?
Try a clean boot, you will have to press the Windows Start key on your keyboard and R :
On the Services tab of System Configuration, select Hide all Microsoft services, and then select Disable all.
On the Startup tab of System Configuration, select Open Task Manager.
Under Startup in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then select Disable.
Close Task Manager.
Now restart the PC and try again, you can reverse the above to put it back normal.
If it works, it is one of the services you have disabled above.
Windows is failing updates?
