Help, My Computer Won’t Start!

Tuesday, September 26th, 2023

Is your PC giving you trouble? If your PC won’t start, it can be a frustrating experience. But don’t worry, there are a few things you can try to fix the problem yourself. And if you’re not comfortable troubleshooting the issue yourself, our team of experienced IT technicians can help.

Here are a few things you can try to fix a PC that won’t start:

  1. Check the power supply. Make sure that your PC is plugged in and that the power switch is turned on. If you’re using a power strip or surge protector, try plugging your PC directly into the wall outlet.
  2. Try a different power outlet. If you’ve already checked the power supply and your PC still won’t start, try plugging it into a different outlet. This will help you rule out a faulty power outlet as the cause of the problem.
  3. Disconnect any external devices. If you have any external devices connected to your PC, such as a printer, scanner, or external hard drive, disconnect them and try starting your PC again. Sometimes, external devices can interfere with the startup process.

If you’ve tried all of the above and your PC still won’t start, it’s time to call a professional. Our team of experienced IT technicians can diagnose the problem and fix it quickly and efficiently. We can also help you recover your data if necessary.

Contact us today to schedule a service appointment. We’re here to help you get your PC back up and running as soon as possible. We diagnose and fix computers and laptops in the north central part of San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills, Castle Hills, Hill Country Village, Windcrest, Converse and beyond.

Windows 7 and Apple BootCamp.

Monday, November 30th, 2009

So far, Apple does not ‘officially’ support Windows 7 on BootCamp.  Their site released a statement on October 22, 2009 and it has not been updated.  Apple states:

Apple will support Microsoft Windows 7 (Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate) with Boot Camp in Mac OS X Snow Leopard before the end of the year. This support will require a software update to Boot Camp.

With that being said, most Mac users are able to install Windows 7 on BootCamp without any issues.  Here are a few links to forums that discuss this and installation help.

So you haven’t switched to Gmail yet? We recommend Google’s excellent online email services to everyone. It’s free! But maybe you’ve got years of messages and addresses in your desktop e-mail program (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) and switching sounds like too much hassle.

Well Google’s new Email Uploader is the answer. The Google Email Uploader is an easy-to-use program that lets you forward e-mail messages and contacts to your Gmail account. Now you have no excuse, go sign up for Gmail right now! (Currently this application only works with Windows XP and Vista)

Free Online Image Editors

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

We normally recommend the desktop application Picasa (free download) for managing all of your photos, but a number of new online photo editors are becoming available that are very powerful, easy to use, and free. These can be handy for quick image editing on the go, and can even work with the images that you already have online. Here are two services that I am impressed with:
