+ 0 Votes Two things happen when power button is pushed. markschillin 5 years ago 1)the power button LED lights up when button pushed. 2)you can hear fan and perhaps(not sure)the hard drive. F12 and F2 do nothing even after power reset.The only thing I can think that could have happened would be a power down during it writing to disk. I would greatly appreciate any options to try. I had borrowed this computer from my father who has an unusual fear of "something" happening to his computer.Basically because he is computer illiterate. Now his worst fears have come true.Well not yet,hopefully I can pull off a recovery!
