  1. PC troubles, power failure caused?


    Just before my Computer failed I had a series of local power failures. After this It started to boot up funny it would rapidly scroll through the boards diagnostic codes getting to A2 then starting over again several times in the end it stopped on 66. The BIOS screen is not coming up. I have been unable to download to a thumb drive it BOS because I dont another PC to do it. To end this problem I purchase a refurbished Lenovo ThinkCentre M93P ($181 USD) It has an i5 Intel with Windows 10 pro loaded. My Hamradio friends rave about this little system. With it I can load a thumb drive and attempt to reload the Bios on the big PC. I figure I have nothing to loose.

    :)

    the driver itself or power settings.

  3. Lost Power, now PC won't boot. Powers on and clicks.

    I had tried both of those steps. Neither worked. I have a replacement power supply on order. Should be here on Monday. Thanks for the suggestions.

  4. PC troubles, power failure caused?

    power issue

    Hello,

    Most of the time, this issue is caused by external devices that are possibly keeping the PC active which then results in the screen/display not turning off even after you've set the power settings. Try disconnecting any external devices, usually gaming devices,
    and check if the issue persists.

    We also suggest running the Power troubleshooter to automatically troubleshoot any power issue. Just follow the steps below:

    • Click on Search/Cortana, and then type Troubleshooting.
    • Click on Troubleshooting.
    • Click on System and Security.
    • Click on Power.

    Let us know if that worked out for you.
