I have a new HP ENVY TouchSmart 17T-J100. I do not see a num lock on or off indicator light. Prior computer keyboards have had such an indicator light. Is there one, or are we to figure out if num lock feature is on or off by trial and error?
My not too-old XPS L502X will not turn on. The battery indicator still has a single light remaining when pressed. When I plug in the power adaptor (blue light on power adaptor is on at this point) the blue light goes off.
Have tried in multiple plugs, same thing happens.
Have tried taking out battery and replacing, holding down power button for 30 seconds.
I have a dell inspiron 15r 5521 laptop. Yesterday when I tried to turn it on it won't boot, even the POST or the BIOS won't show up. I removed the battery and power supply and press down the power button for a long time and repeated it a lot of times too but no luck. I removed the HDD, RAMs and the CMOS battery and kept it that way for 5 mins and put them back in but it was still the same. I noticed that whenever I enter the ac adaptor into the laptop the fan moves for like 100millisecond and the light on the caps lock button lights up for the same amount of time then it all goes silent. Same happens when I press the power button with only the battery inserted.
All what happens when I try to turn it on is that the power indicator light on the laptop turns on(white color, which is the normal color for this laptop), and that's it. The light don't blink or anything at all. No beep sound. The fan, HDD everything remains silent. Only that light stays on until I unplug it from ac and remove the battery. Pressing down the power button doesn't turn it off either. No other indicator light such as the wifi's, hdd's, battery's light doesn't turn on.
When I disabled the touch-pad (by Fn+F3) the touch-pad is disabled but the orange light indicator doesn't work...It worked before very well I don't know what is the problem? I uninstalled and reinstalled the touch-pad driver again but there is no change..I'm working on win 8 64 bit
I have an Acer Aspire V3 551 8469. It is out of warranty. The indicator power light blinks 4 to 5 times and nothing happens after. I got adventurous and opened it up. I replaces the cord that receives the power coupling from the ac. Still not working. I was told it could be the motherboard but there is no guarantee that is the issue. If it is the mother board I will just have to get one and put it in.
I have a Dv6244us running windows 7 and for a while now the disc drive has been sporadically ejecting without any pushing of the eject button. Now it only opens occasionally when prompted to do so and it has stopped reading discs; when I go to My Computer it tells me to insert a disc when there is one in the drive.
I Have an acer aspire 5100 but when to format hard drive and do full recovery but nothing went on the disc does any one have a copy of the recovery disc to help me out amd turion 64 mobile 1gb ram 80g hard drive
I have a Lenovo Y410P that will not boot. The BIOS only sees to PXE boot. It does not attempt to boot from the Windows 8 installation disc, or from the hard drive that I reinstalled Windows on myself. I can boot to both of these on other computers, so I know they are not the problem. I'm thinking it's BIOS or motherboard related, but I'm not sure where to go from here.
I was making a Windows 7 recovery disc set, usning the Lenovo Thinkvantage tools, and one of the first pop up windows that came up said "Note: DVD RAM is not supported for Disc 1 of the Product Recovery disc set". Does this meen that I cannot use a DVDs for a Recovery discs? That is all I have.
Anything I do on this machine, the HD lights barley goes out. It just keeps flashing. I think it is what slowing my machine down. When i am playing a game, I get laggy fps and what not and I think it is the HD slowing it downs. Even when the machine is doing nothing the HD light is solid. I ran the HP HD tests and it found no issues. My "File searching index" for vista is turned off. I have enable write chaching and enable advance proformance enabled. Any ideas? I am getting pissed off with this becasue it really laggs my system down. It is a decent system when it works right..
I was trying to replace a cracked screen and was having problems so tried to put the original one back in and order another one. However now when I power up the computer the front 2 lights - charging and lights come on but the hard drive doesnt even flicker nor does the wifi and the screen remains black. It doesnt even try to boot. SOmething else must have come loose or shorted I guess. Should I pull the laptop completely apart and check all connections now or what is likely to be the problem? Everything was working ok previously as I hooked the laptop with cracked screen up to a monitor and it worked perfectly before i started mucking about with the screen.
I have a two month old M4400 with a ST9320423ASG hard-drive that hovers at around 40-41 deg.C (as reported by HDTune) under very light use (basically just Thunderbird and Firefox ).
I'm running Win7Ultimate 64-bit and the power plan is most of the time either on "balanced" or "dell". This is what hdparm says about this drive (excerpt):
Code: Advanced power management level: unknown setting (0x8080) Recommended acoustic management value: 208, current value: 208
I wanted to know whether this temp is considered normal under my described usage conditions and if there's any tweaking that can be done to lower it.
Another bit of interesting information about this drive is that it used to click like crazy when it first came from Dell, until I installed the firmware update in mid Dec. It's been quiet like a mouse since then but I'm wondering if the new firmware could have made it run hotter.
