My computer will not turn on.
If your computer will not turn on there are a few things to check. Unplug the power and wait 15 seconds, then plug it back into the wall. (verify the plug in the back of the tower or computer, and to the wall or power strip) Verify that the power strip is functioning. If it has a reset button, press the button.

My computer has frozen and will not respond to keyboard.
If the keyboard does not respond, verify that the keyboard is plugged in. Is there a CAPS LOCK light on the keyboard, does it turn off and on when you press the CAPS LOCK button.  If not, then that means the Operating System is frozen and will need a Cold Restart (Press and Hold the Power button till the computer turns off, wait 15 seconds then press it again to restart). If the problem continues to reoccur you may need ASD Solutions.
