Hello,

I would like the computer to auto start in the morning to start downloading somethings. (So I don't have to get up) :whistling: . Is there anyway to get the computer to start up on its own?

Thanks in advance,

~Matt :-)

the autostart function should be in your bios if it supports it.

and for it to start downloading things you either need to create a task or place the program that deals with the downoads in the startup folder.

a lil more information one what your computer's motherboard or manufacture may be of some help.

i know not all pc's support the autostart feature.

Hope that helps

How do I find out what make the motherboard is? I know the computer is a Nec with an Intel Pentinum 4 proceser if that helps.

Thanks,
