Computer Won't Turn On?
Computer Power Repair Service

There are many things that can keep a computer from turning on including charging issues. Anything from a bad charging port, a bad battery, or even a bad power button can be the cause for a computer that fails to charge or turn on. We offer repairs tailored to your specific charging issue which saves you money as opposed to the "fix all" flat rate from major manufacturers. Stop on by and get a quote for your repair. Quotes for charging issues are given within 1-2 business days (Excludes Same Day Service), at which time you can approve or decline the repair. We're conveniently located in south Austin, Texas, right off the Ben White frontage road. Declined repairs are subject to diagnostic fee of $19 for laptops and $49 for desktops, but free for approved repairs.

My Computer Won't Turn On! What Happened?

Several factors can contribute to the power failure in computer.

Here are some common causes:

  1. Overloading: Power supplies have a specific wattage rating, and exceeding that limit can overload the components, causing them to fail. This can happen if you add too many power-hungry devices or upgrade components that demand more power than the power supply can provide.

  2. Power Surges: Sudden spikes in voltage, known as power surges, can damage power management components. These surges can occur due to lightning strikes, faulty wiring, or problems with the power grid. Investing in a surge protector can help mitigate this risk.

  3. Heat and Overheating: Computers generate heat during operation. If the system's cooling mechanisms, such as fans or ventilation, fail to dissipate the heat adequately, the computer may overheat. Excessive heat can degrade components and lead to failures.

  4. Dust and Debris: Accumulation of dust and debris over time can hinder proper airflow and cooling within the system. This can cause components to overheat and eventually fail. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help prevent this.

  5. Age and Wear: Like any electronic device, computers have a limited lifespan. Over time, the internal components can deteriorate, capacitors can dry out, and connections may become loose or corroded. This gradual wear and tear can eventually lead to failure.

  6. Manufacturing Defects: In some cases, computers may have inherent manufacturing defects, such as poor soldering, faulty components, or inadequate quality control. 

  7. Power Fluctuations and Electrical Noise: Inconsistent power supply or electrical noise, such as voltage spikes, dips, or frequency variations, can put strain on the power management components. This can lead to instability, component damage, and eventual failure.

It's important to note that power failures can sometimes manifest as other issues in a computer system, such as random crashes, system instability, or failure to power on. If you experience a power failure, it's recommended to drop by for a diagnostic on your particular issue.
