i met a computer guthru a flyer at a supermarket

i know, you're right

anyway, my dell 4600- is 10 years old

so i know it's irretrievable

as 

"Moore's law (/mɔərz.ˈlɔː/) is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. "

anyway, i agreed to buy this acer computer

he never gave me specs, 2 gb memory, i have found programs installed in 2008

but

i was having a hard time booting up

he proved to be the type to blame the equipment or me for the problem

he came over to fix the "power sqve" option'since then'

it doesn't get past initial boot 

"no windows starting", "welcome", etc

and it goes into "power save mode

and shuts off

what's up????????????????????????????????????

Well..."caveat emptor" which means "let the buyer beware"...seems to apply here, if not in  every facet of business dealings..

 

Any and all questions about said system...should be directed to the seller, IMO.

You have a computer that's lasted you for 10 years?  Wow, congratulations.   :bananas:

 

As for your issue, it's tough to say.  At any rate, I agree it shouldn't be your problem.  Contact the seller and tell him to fix it.

Well i have an 11 year old packard bell lappy running xp,its awesome..hope to get another ten years out of it :)

 

As per Hamluis,you should really get this sorted by the seller,if that doesnt work,this might be worth a look.

Alternatively you could go to a reputable computer repair outlet and have them take a look at it.(Get them to quote you for any work before they do it.

Sorry you feel like that,(im not holy...sometimes a bit moly but that cant be helped )i was just saying the best recource in a situation like this is too get the seller to sort it if poss,the link i gave you did have a few options to try,your options beyond that are basically a bit limited,i just suggested what i would do which is find a shop and get em to look it over for you,their usually helpfull enough and you can ask em to quote you for any work.

 

(If you have failing ram or graphics card a start up disk wont be a solution,hence the suggestion to get a diagnosis from a computer tech).
