If you have problems starting up, it is very important to understand the necessary steps to troubleshoot. SSPDaily has prepared some tips to help with this problem.

Check the power supply

Make sure that the power cable is properly connected and that the outlet is working properly. It is also recommended to try connecting the computer to a different power source to see what the problem might be.

Inspect the components

Check the stability of the RAM, video card, and other devices. Over time, loose connections or faulty components can lead to startup problems, so make sure all hardware is securely fastened.

Check the CMOS battery

The CMOS battery on the motherboard stores the BIOS settings and system time. If your computer won't start or loses the time setting after every shutdown, the battery may be dead. To replace the battery, turn off the computer, disconnect it from the power source, locate the battery on the motherboard (usually a metal disk), remove it, install the new battery, and turn on the computer.

Seek professional help

If all of these methods fail to resolve the startup problem, seek professional help from experienced technicians. Complex hardware problems, such as a malfunctioning hard disk or motherboard, require qualified diagnostics and repair.
