Computer Not Working?

Here are a few easy trouble shooting steps you can take if your machine is not working properly:

  • Have you done a cold reboot? Not just a restart, but turn the machine off, wait a few minutes and turn it back on?
  • Plug another known working PC or laptop into the problem port and see if that works?
  • Trying plugging your machine into a known working port. If the machine works fine in another port, please let us know.
