Acer :: Aspire 3683 Wont Turn On At All
The laptop was working fine last night. Today I turn it on but nothing happens. Ive tried turning it on with the AC and no battery and also with the battery by itself but no lights turn on - not even the charging battery light. The adapter is correctly plugged in. The battery was full last night, so you'd think that it would turn on when running the battery by itself.
Its about 1.5 years old so its out of warranty.
Ive tried holding the power button for 30 seconds and then waiting ~5 mintues and plugged the battery back in and nothing. I also did it again but tried with the adapter and still no luck.
What can I do to revive it?

Acer :: My Aspire One Won't Turn Off!
I'm having a problem with my Acer Aspire One A150.
The system won't shut down, and just restarts if I try and turn it off.
I have to pull the battery out if I want it to turn off.
When I plug the battery in, it turns on straight away without me having to press the power button.
Also the system won't work off the Mains Power only (with battery removed).
If I plug just the power lead in, the power light flickers and the system keeps clicking until I unplug it again.
The system works with the power lead only if the battery is plugged in as well.
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Wont Turn On
Just wrapped the notebook inside a blanket and overheated it, then let it cool down.
Now it works.
All i have to do now is to remove the Nvidia gpu stuff left behind and it should be ready for use again.
My problem is exacly the same as the one described in this thread:
Aspire 7520 - will not start or then will not shut off
But i could not find any fix.
My stepdads Acer Aspire 7520G wont turn on anymore.
The wierd thing is that it was working yesterday.
Now it just keep rebooting like seen in this YouTube clip.
Its out of warranty so i was hoping i could try fixing it myself.
With the help of the community here of course.
I been randomly searching Google for help and what i have found out is that this is a common problem, but i have yet to find any fixes other than the suggestion to remove the motherboard and reheat it inside an oven..................
Acer :: Extensa 5220 Won't Turn On
I have an Acer extensa 5220 laptop, which suddenly decided this morning that it wont turn on any more! It was working perfectly fine, has good anti-virus, etc., and worked fine an hour before but now when it's turned on, the power button goes green and nothing else happens. It's not been dropped or banged, was not plugged into the mains at the time (but can that rule out a surge the last time it was plugged in?)There is not even a flicker on the screen, the fan doesn't come on, but I think the hard-drive hums. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with it?
Acer :: 6530G Won't Turn On With Or Without Battery
I was listening to some music yesterday night, then suddenly my laptop decided to shut down. No problem I thought, becaus it happened 2 times before in which I only had to start the laptop. This time however, the laptop does not want to turn on.
I tried turning it on with the battery, and without the battery(with the adapter plugged in). Nothing helps.
Also I have noticed that the light bulb on the adapter blok blinks if it is plugged into the laptop, but just normally doesnt blink when i pull the adapter out of the laptop(with or without battery).
Acer :: How Can I Turn Off BIOS Password
I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 through a clean install. Now I must have enable something I didn't want to because now it asks to put a password in before it boots. I know the password, that's not the problem.
The problem is I'd rather not have it ask me, and there's always a danger of it locking up on me if it gets input incorrectly.
So my question is, how do I turn it off? I did a clean install so I don't have most of the crap Acer throw in, including eManagement Settings, which I heard may have the solution to my problem. I only have the Acer Bio Protection, the fingerprint reader, and I tried turning it off there, but to no avail.
Acer :: 5315 - Slow Freeze And Turn Off
When ever i used my Acer 5315 for about 5 mins of switching on it would become very slow freze and turn off.
So i did not no what to do. I was told to restore it to factory setings. So i used the big green E button at the top right to get that green toolbar thing up. Went on recovery i think, restore and set to factory setings. I think it then turned itself off and when i turned it on it went on to e recovery. But a bit into i went to put my laptop down and the battery fel out lol. And now when i turn it on all you get is the acer page then a black screen with a white flashing line at the top left.
Acer :: Extensa 5620-4801 Does Not Turn On (tries, Then Fails)
I downloaded a 800+ MB game today and was playing it even though it said my graphics card didn't match and stuff... I got a couple runtime errors and the game got shut down, but later I started ignoring the messages when I figured out that way, I can keep playing. Then I "accidentally" responded to the error message and when the game got shut down the computer stopped responding at all. I force-shut down the computer by holding down the power button. Then, after that when I try to turn on the computer the fan starts turning and green light comes up... for about 3 seconds. Then it takes a .1 sec-long break and tries again for another 3 seconds, then gives in completely. It does this when it has power, so I don't think it's the battery. It won't even show the Acer screen at the very beginning. It's a Vista, no recovery CD (do you ever get recovery CD's for Vista?). Any chance we get our notebook alive and kicking again?
Acer :: Extensa 5420-5038 Wireless Dont Turn On
I bought an Acer Extensa 5420-5038 today, it cames with Vista Home 32 bits english version. As I am a brazilian, i formated it and instaled Vista Ultimate 64 bits Portugues version. The problem is, after the instalation, the wireless dont work anymore.
The light that usually flickes over it doesl not turn on, and it appears as an unknown network device on my hardware manager.
I've tried Atheros and Broadcom drivers from acer site but they didnt work and it told me the driver won't be installed because the appropriate card isn't installed....
In other words, it's telling me I dn't have an Atheros/Broadcom wireless card, but with the original instalatio of Vista it WAS working perfectly.
Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline
I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.
The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?
Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:
Aspire Timeline 5810-4784
My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?
Dell :: My XPS Wonīt Turn On
I have my Inspiron Gen 2 XPS since 2005 and Iīm very pleased for all the good years.
But I think is dead now. I donīt know what happen but it was a bit overheat this last years, maybe I didnīt pay enough attention to its cleaning needs as I did the first year I bought it.
So yesterday I turn it off as usual, and now I tried starting it and it wonīt even boot the Dell logo.
The fans turn ON and everything, even the screen iluminates, but doesnīt show any images and the Num Lock key is iluminated.
I donīt even get to the boot screen, it just wonīt load up anything. My lappy is dying and its in a really critical moment.
Sony :: TZ Won't Turn On
I have a Sony TZ which was run over by a car a few weeks back. The only issue at first was the screen was cracked - it turned on and I had been using it with the broken screen for a couple weeks with no issues.
Todya my replacement screen arrived and I replaced it and now it won't turn on at all. What could I have done to cause that? Any ideas? Will it be repairable if I take it to a shop for less than the cost of a replacement (TT I guess)?
Dell :: My XPS M1330 Won't Turn On!
When it's plugged in, the power light on the power button lights, as does the power light on the front edge of the laptop. But, after about 4 seconds, both lights cut off.
After they cut off, the battery light on the front edge blinks just once (even when battery is not connected).
Nothing powers up during those 4 seconds. No hard drive sound, no fan on the mboard, etc. Just the lights ....
Dell :: M1530 Won't Even Turn On
I have a year old red M1530. My specs are:
Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
(Clean install on empty hard drive, only basic drivers/no crapware)
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (Dual boot)
Core 2 Duo T7700
x2 Corsair 2GB DDR2-667MHz RAM
GeForce 8600M GT 256MB GDDR3
320GB 5400rpm HDD (Samsung -_-)
Recently I dropped my laptop from my bed, making the bottom left hand corner of the palmrest (i.e. the part right above the HDD) bend and open outwards, so I bought a new Product Red palmrest off ebay and replaced it myself - worked a charm, had no problems for two days.
The problem occurred today: I decided I would restart my computer to work on my Windows 7 partition as it was the partition without Steam. It shut off like normal, but it stopped at a black screen - the Dell startup screen never showed up. I had to switch off the computer by holding down the power button.
Now, when I turn it on, everything starts up as normal for a split second, then all the lights on the multimedia interface go out, and nothing shows up on the screen...I can hear the hard drive running like normal, so I doubt it's a hard drive failure.
The techie at my uni residence says that either the LCD display wiring has gone faulty, or the LCD burnt out (or some other bit of hardware), but I find it funny that this should happen AFTER a restart...isn't that a bit of a coincidence? I opened up my laptop to reconnect the cabling, but nothing seems to work...a motherboard failure perhaps?
Dell :: XPS 1330 Fan Won't Turn Off
As the subject states, my fan will not turn off. Everything was running great, then about a week ago, after installing MS updates, my fan will not turn off no matter what I'm doing.
I'm sure it was an update but am not sure how to go about fixing. I know I can just start uninstalling updates till the fan turns off but if there is a better way that would be great.
Dell :: XPS M1710 Won't Turn On
I've had my laptop for about two months now. I bought it from a recondition company - ndc.co.uk. It's been fine up till now. On friday night it was working perfectly, then when I went to turn it on on saturday afternoon it was nothing doing. Two of the lights on the back right (the power one and the one next to it) lit-up for about a second, then they went back off again, and that was it. It's been doing that ever since. The light on the AC power supply is still green, but it won't turn on either on just battery or just supply or both. I didn't download anything the last time I used it, just a bit of footy manager, watched a couple of episodes of simpsons online listened to some stuff on itunes and thats it. Nothing's been spilt on it and I am at a loss to understand why it isn't working.
I doubt its that common a problem - I rang Dell and short of opening it up they didn't really know what to do. I tried taking the battery out and holding down the power button for 10-15 seconds then trying to turn it on again, but it didn't work. If anyone knows anything that can help, please let me know, and save me the journey to the repair shop and the millions of pounds they'll charge me.
Sony :: WiFi Won't Turn On
i got my laptop last month (VGN-NS110E) and i've recently been having this issue with the wifi switch as I had a MBR error on the partition and had to format everything...green light doesn't go on and i can't get it to turn on with smartWi...Sony tech support sucks bigtime....I am thinking it may be a hardware issue and I just want them to take a look at it but the "tech" told me I need to install the recovery disk first which i hate because all the unneeded extra bs that comes on it....I have misplaced my recovery disks that came with the laptop so I first installed vista ultimate and then sony told me only supports vista home premium. I don't want to order replacement disk knowing that it may not work...what I could try or where I would be able to find the recovery disk i need...?
HP/Compaq :: 6540b Won't Turn On
I have a hp probook 6540b from work.
Yesterday when i went out of work, i closed the lid put it in my backpack and left it there until this morning.
Today when i tried to turn it on nothing seems to happen except the battery light that is blinking when i press the power button.
It blinks fast like 5-7 times changing color between blue and orange, and then just turns off.
I tried removing the battery and turning it on with just the AC adapter - same effect, same blinking.
I tried just with the battery - nothing at all (not even the blinking)
With the battery and the adapter together - blinking.
I have a feeling that yesterday it didn't go to sleep when i closed the lid and what happened is taht it was working closed inside my backpack until it either fried something from the heat, or the battery ended from the fans blowing full on.. But that's just a hunch..
meaning of the blinking battery light ?
Or maybe has a service manual that i can check ?

Apple :: Macbook Pro Won't Turn On
my roommate when he turns on his macbook the screen button doesn't light up. The only thing that lights up is the indicator on the side of the macbook.
We also tried to plug in the macbook into the TV and it said no signal so its most likely not the screen problem. The Keyboard cap lock does light up too.

Dell :: Inspiron 9400 Does Not Turn On!
My inspiron 9400 will not boot. The only functions I can see is the battery light comes on when plugged in to indicate that it is charging, and when I press the power button the power light comes on for 5 seconds then goes off, thats it.
I thought this problem was the board earlier, so I replaced it with a tested motherboard and am having the same problem.
I have also tried booting with just AC adaptor and just battery, no change. Right now my only idea is the CPU, is this feasible? Can somebody help me with this?
Dell :: D630 Wont Turn On
My d630 wont start. Whenever i push the power button, the power led lights up, hdd starts but the display stays black. And then, after few seconds i can hear the hdd turning off (it makes this funny "click") and the whole notebook powers off.
I disassembled it few times already. I kept unplugging one part after another trying to power up the notebook after ever one. Finally, with both ram modules (genuine, no upgrades) taken out it powers up, but of course won't boot...
There are now two problems:
1. Both ram modules worked already for some time.
2. The notebook powers up and boots into win xp from time to time and everything seems ok, till it dies after around one hour, sometimes more. This opts against corrupted ram...
Dell :: How To Turn Off Fingerprint Reader
I got an E4300 through work and set up the fingerprint reader at the request of my IT department, but I hate this stupid thing. It never works and I always have to manually override it.
I asked them to take it off, but it's "firm policy" for our laptops to have the reader turned on.
Anyone know how to turn it off? It's controlled through Dell ControlPoint and maybe a proprietary program we have.
Dell :: XPS 1530 Wont Turn On
I push the power button on my 1530 and nothing happens. No lights, no anything. There was no burning smell previously.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Will Not Turn On
Just recently i opened my laptop up and got it out of sleep, i opened up the game world of warcraft , and as i was logging in, it froze and made loud noises constantly so i turned it off right away, and tried to reboot a few min later but no dice.
when i push the power button the power led comes on as well as the upper keyboard leds, the caps lock led flashes, idk if that means anything, but nothing from there, screen is blank and no hard drive seems to be spooling. The power brick led remains on when i plus it into the laptop and i have tried it without battery, ram, HD, and such but it won't start
Dell :: 700m Screen Won't Turn On

now my lcd 'tries to come on' at boot but then nothing is displayed.
Sony :: Laptop- Didnt Turn On
Ive been having a problem with my laptop since Friday. Basically i went to turn it on and it didnt turn on so i cleaned all the dust out of the charger and my battery and tried it again and it managed to turn on. However, after being on it for around 15 minutes it just cut out on me. And now every time i go on it, it cuts out after a little while of it being on. I then cant turn it on for around an hour then it manages to turn on and then cut off and im back to square one.
Its nothing to do with the charger because that works fine so its clearly something to do with the hardware. Has anyone had problems like this before and is it easy to sort out?
Sony :: Z And BluetoothWon't Turn On! (Even With SmartWi)
After opening up my Sony Z to repair the cooling system, I found my laptop could not detect my Bluetooth module anymore. It worked perfectly before.
I mean, not even find the piece of hardware. It's not that it can't detect Bluetooth devices, the laptop doens't think I have one anymore!
1. SmartWi - Checked, double checked, uninstalled and then reinstalled - nada. SmartWi says it's on!
2. Reinstalled Bluetooth driver - Attempt failed, since it persistently informs me to "turn on Bluetooth" or "plug it in".
3. Toggled Wireless switch - Several times - the green light is on! I'm connected to WiFi! So that can't be the cultprit.
4. Hardware - i checked the Ribbons / antennae (FPC-123) - all intact with no scratches.
5. Bluetooth is not even listed under Device Manager.
Model: Sony VGN-650N. OS: Vista
Anyone heard of Bluetooth suddenly puttering out?
Should I extract the Bluetooth Module and give it a beating?
Sony :: Laptop Won't Turn On No Lights
I have had Sony Vaio VGN-N19VP/B for over a year now and this morning I went to open the lid and turn the laptop on and there were no lights or any response.
I took out the battery and put it back in to see if the connectors were loose but the problem remains.
I checked to see if the AC cable was working, the light was off and then I checked it with my multimeter output was 19.61v
Under the motherboard where powewr cable from AC jack is connected I have 3.98V.
On the battery output from moterboard on the 3 pin is 2.58V

HP/Compaq :: HELP --zd7005qv Wont Turn On
My HP zd7005qv laptop stopped turning on a little while back, and at first I thought it was a failed HDD. However, I also noticed that when I plug in the power cord, the lights would blink only for a brief moment then immediately go off. So I started fiddling with the cord and I got it in a position where the lights would complete their start-up blink, and when I tried to turn it on it actually started booting. But it stopped as soon as I moved the power cord again.
So I figured that the problem was a bad power jack.. it's pretty common from what I hear. I disassembled it, desoldered the power pin, and soldered a new one I bought off eBay. Now there is absolutely no problem with the power jack but the laptop still wont turn on. I'm afraid I may have screwed something else up while disassembling and reassembling the laptop.
When I press the power button, the lights at the top come on, I hear a light whining buzz and then all the lights shut off. I tried removing the RAM sticks, I even remove the HDD and the same thing happens no matter what. I tried turning it on with just the AC adapter, and I even let the battery charge a bit to try tuning it on with just the battery. I think I may have killed my processor..
