Geek squad fixing pc not booting

I'm not a hardware guy. While I like to build PC from scratch by selecting compatible components and putting it all together, I'm only interested in hardware when I'm about to build a new PC and not the other time of the year. From last couple of weeks my pc was not turning on for some reason. So I contacted henry over geek squad support and he suggested me some tips and frankly after trying those my laptop is working fine without any issue.

Fix for laptop boot issue

  1. Do other electronic devices work. If power is out completely, those won't work as well.
  2. Check the power connection to the PC. Make sure the cable is not lose. Also, make sure the power connection is working by testing it with another electronic device.
  3. PCs have a power on/off switch on the back usually. Make sure the switch is in the on position.
  4. Check if the PC monitor has power, and that its connection to the PC is firm in place.
  5. Do you hear fans and the PC powering up when you turn it on?
  6. Check the power and reset buttons at the front. Do they appear stuck or out of place?

After following checking these I found that the power cable was having issue. After changing that the issue was fixed now it is working fine. If you’re not a tech savy then I’d suggest you to book geek squad appointment and they can fix the issue for your at comfort of your home.

Fix for computer hanging issue

I would be grateful for some assistance in diagnosing my computers problems. About 1 week ago I had a freeze when the computer went into sleep mode, I didnt realise it was a freeze as the computer just completely turned off, requiring the power button to restart instead of the normal keyboard wake system windows 10 uses. Now 3 days ago I have started getting freezes while using the computer. The symptoms are the monitor freezes, keyboard is unresponsive (num lock does not toggle, keyboard commands appear to do nothing), power button quick press does not work but full 4 second hold does force the computer off. After about 1 - 3 minutes the computer turns itself off. I do not hear any shutdown noise but its impossible to tell if that system is frozen or not.

DirectX Diagnostic is attached

Steps I have taken: 
- Update graphics driver

- Remove second monitor, second hard drive, external HD's and USB connections for powering devices like phones and game controllers.
- Clean computer of dust, which also necessitated replacing the CPU's thermal paste.

Removing the secondary hard drive seemed to prevent crashes for a few hours but it just froze playing Stellaris again.

I’m working at best buy geek squad phone number as computer repair agent. So you can trust and try out these steps and your computer hanging issue will be fixed on your laptop or desktop.
