After pressing the button , the LED flashes the SHIFT key, and after a few seconds the fans run fast . Other times the computer starts normally . What may be due?

Preferred Solution: Boot problem and MAIUSC Led blink

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Today while I was browsing the internet, my laptop suddenly shut off. I tried turning it back on. The lights on the computer blink once and the laptop stops. I have tried the discharging the whole system, but I get the same effects. I noticed that every light blinks white, except for the disk light, which blinks orange. What does this mean? I am sorry if this question has been asked before but I could not find a duplicate.

Good morning to all! My computer was running fine, either with Windows 7 64-bit or with the upgrade to Windows 10 64-bit. My battery is dead, so i use the laptop without it. Just AC cord in. Last night, as i was setting up a Wi-Fi router at home, i left it on for about 3-4 hours.When i finished, i powered it down normally. This morning, i took it out and set it on the dinnign table, and when i powered it up, the leds from the sound, wi-fi and mouse pad stay lit, the fan starts up, the leds from the caps-lock and num-lock blink once, but no bios or OS boot. I powered it down, removed AC cord and reset holding power button for 1 minute+ 3 times, then power cord in and powered it up and the same thing happened, but this time i got 2 blinks from the caps and num lock, then 5 second pause, and another 2 blinks: BIOS corrupted, right? Since i have customed my laptop with an HyperX Fury SSD drive 240Gb from Kingston, i don't have the partitions from HP Recovery or HP Tools, so i tryed to get the BIOS file from HP Support and created a BIOS recovery flashdrive. The BIOS file is not the latest BIOS update tool from HP, it's Winflash, so doesn't allow creating a recovery flash drive directly, so i extracted the contents and put it in a 4Gb flashdrive, formatted in FAT32, Renamed HP_TOOLS, and tryed the whole reset process, then hitting Win Logo + B keys in and pressing Power button for 1-2 seconds to recover BIOS. Worked once out of 7 tries!...

I had previously hooked this up to my big screen via the hdmi.  The next morning I went to turn it on and got nothing.  Holding the power button down with power plugged in, not plugged in any combination for 1 - 120 seconds produces the same exact result.  The little light on the " i " lights up for exactly 4 seconds and then nothing.  I have tried a different power cord and get the exact same result.  I have tried using the emergency reset with a needle on the back of the device...same result. Any help would be great.

Hey all! Hope there's some help around... My t5500 randomly died. Would turn on for a few seconds, without booting then turn itself off. Swapped MB out, now get 234 blinking diagnostic lights (halted before transfer to BIOS control, and the fans slowly get louder.). This is with three different motherboards, two different cpus, two GPUs, two power supplies. If the BIOS isn't being transferred to, could it be corrupted? Is there a way to flash a new BIOS externally myself? This was such a great tower, and I'd rather keep it running than replace. 6x2gig RAM. First gen MB with fans on both bridges. Nvidia gtx 950 or fx1800 available. Single CPU e5530 quadcore. Terabyte Seagate 7200rpm. Any questions or input is welcome. I cannot work without my station being operational. Thanks all

My daughter's laptop has died.  When you push the power button the power light on the side comes on and stays on and the hard drive light blinks momentarily then not at all.  There is a blink code on the Caps Lock key that appears to blink twice - one blink followed by a second about 1 to 2 seconds later, then a longer wait and the code repeats.  There is no LED on any other key.  I've tried the hard reset by pulling the battery and pushing the power key for a long time.  No change. I've looked up the blink code which says it's a corrupted BIOS and used the Windows key/B key combination before pushing the power button and nothing happens except the blink code continues. This is all that I can find to try with this laptop and the daughter needs it for her online college courses.  She bought it from Amazon and it is a refurbished unit.  Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have a very old computer but I don't have the extra funds to buy a new one at the current time but I want to fix it so I can at least get my information and files off that computer. I don't have another computer available to to use either.

nothing goes dark, just that once or twice a minute, there is a kind of bright flash on the external monitor.   
i am not having the problem same HDMI cable and viewsonic monitor on a different laptop.   so it must be my dell e6530, not the cable or the monitor.
what do you think could be the problem?   more detail:
windows 10, Nvidia nvs 5200M, intel HD4000 graphics.   i disabled "optimus" in BIOS so it just uses tne Nvidia card, not the cpu graphics.  
device manager shows settings for 'display' and for 'monitor'.  for "monitors", device manager shows both the 'generic pnp driver' and the 'viewsonic' driver; disabling one or both of these "monitor" in device manager does nothing.   in the 'display' section, it is just showing the Nvidia because intel was disabled in BIOS optimus.

Q: Blink

I've used Blink for the last 6 months or so, and really enjoyed it. I received a message this AM that if I wish to continue to use them for bookmarks, all I have to do is pay $4.00 a month (a discounted price ) this is not what I had in mind.

What blink did was to allow you to have bookmarks at their site, categorize them, modify them, and in general have all your bookmark stuff saved in case of a crash and loss of data on your PC.
My question is: Is anyone aware of a similar site that is free, and that they like? Thanks in advance.

This is a really hard one to describe.

Text in a text editor or sometimes a small window like a dialog box, install box etc. will regularly blink. It's not really a screen redraw where it disappears and reappears, just a blink.

I updated my graphics driver for my Matrox G400 and it still happens. This didn't used to happen on my W2K system.

My XP install is rather new with the same hardware as the W2K system and I don't remember this happening right away. I'm not sure what changed.

I tried going down a level on graphics acceleration and that didn't help.

Hiya,

Had my PC for just over a year (prob about 18 months) and its been absolutely brilliant since I got it. I've upgraded just about everything, graphics card, RAM, hard drives and even the OS, however I'm still running off the same Pentium 4 HT CPU and wondering whether that should be the next on my list.

It was running fine up until a few months ago, now it seems to stutter every sort of 30 seconds whilst in a game and I think I've got it narrowed down to the CPU by quickly ALT Tabbing to resource monitor when I notice the stuttering.

Vista reports CPU as the lowest subscore on the experience index at only 4.3 - whereas my graphics and hard drive etc. is 5.3 and above.

It's played games alright before, how come it is finding it difficult to cope with games only recently? Come to think of it, I did just get a new monitor before Christmas which meant a higher resolution in games, so I wonder if that's done it.

If so, which CPU should I go for? I've not got a huge budget, looking for a mid-gaming one for sub-100?

Thanks!

Solid White

Solid Amber
The battery is at low level with the tablet on or in a connected standby state - the screen is off but the tablet is still turned on.


Off
The battery is not charging or the battery is fully charged.


Flashing Amber
The battery is at a critical level and does not have enough charge to power on. If the power button is pressed during this state, the LED will turn on for 3 seconds and then turn off. Continue charging the tablet.

I am curious why UAC notifications blink the screen out when they come up. When you install an app or try to work in a directory that is under the UAC watch the screen goes entirely blank then pops up with the UAC warning.

Did windows design UAC to do that purposefully, does the UAC message require some sort of display format that it has to go into a special mode?

If I'm following you correctly, it's to prevent taking action before acknowledging UAC. As you're aware, you can disable the feature.

A:Vista on the blink - can I install Win 7 ok?

Since you are using an upgrade disk you will have to use this tutorial a Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version as widows 7 will not activate trying to directly upgrade from vista. Also some of the errors from the Vista installation may be carried over to the Windows 7 installation if a direct upgrade was possible, however If you thoroughly read & follow the tutorial in option two there is a way to retrieve some of your data from the windows.old folder but not installed programs.

I would also recommend that you get a second, third opinion from many of the skilled members here before proceeding as some have lifelong experience dealing with computers.

Another option if you do not want to lose all your data and programs would be to check the Vista forums (see link just below search) as many of the same members here are also members of that forum too and may be able to fix the wonky vista installation

fter connecting the AC power supply to CPU and on pressing start button , CPU light does not blink spontaneously ,It took 3 to 5 minutes to start blinking and window start immediately as light start blinking on start button .Reliability report does not show any error.Pl suggest me some remedial action

A:CPU light does not blink spontaneously

Ehm, CPU is "central processing unit", a computer component. It does not have a light linked to its operation. If by CPU you mean the whole machine, call it "computer".

If that led is close to a symbol that resembles a lightbulb, then it's the power led, and tells if your computer is actually getting power or not. It should go on when you press the power switch and remain on until you shut down the computer.
If it is close to a cylinder symbol, it is the memory usage led, and tells if your computer is reading from its main internal memory device. It does blink randomly when in normal operation and if you don't experience other issues you can safely disregard it.

Other leds can indicate the wifi connection or whatever the maufacturer thought to place there, if it's not one of the above, try to describe it or find an image of it from google.

Please follow this tutorial to fill your system specs (step 7 to do it automatically), so we can know what is the thing you have in your hands. Without knowing more, help provided will be limited.

They were working fine up until today (both with original drivers).

I placed a CD in the Samsung drive (it contained an old Win 98 database).

Both drives simultaneously went on the blink.

They don't show up in My Computer, but they do in the Device Manager under their personal titles (as in, not unrecognized).

Both show the yellow warning sign next to them.

I have tried reinstalling the drivers, but the drives do not show up during the installation, so i can't proceed any further.

(The drivers i downloaded are 'SFDNWIN.exe' for the Samsung, and 'GSA H22L 102.exe' for the LG.)

I have no idea how to proceed any further. As the drives don't show up, I can't use the original CDs.

why does it not work now as it did before i tried to setup the GFX card again. It

acts like the graphics card is still in there shorting it out or something.



please help, Thank you,

Matt "eb3" Eberhardt

I have a Dell Vostro Desktop computer with two displays. The monitors blink off and then come back on every 30 seconds or so. We tried upgrading the video card to NVIDA GEFORCE210 but it didn't help. Any ideas?

Hi millyjames,

What are the brand/model of your monitors? Try disconnecting one monitor and see if the blinking problem still happens. Also, googling the Geforce 210 it looks like it has a VGA port, a DVI port, and an HDMI port. Which connections port do you have the monitors hooked up to?

Replaced the screen on my brothers lenovo G50-80 and now the screen wont turn on. I did a hard reset (holding the power button for 30 sec without the battery then put it back in) the only thing that happens is that the two front led lights blink once and that's it. Nothing else happens the fan doesn't spin or anything else. When I plug in the charger no lights turn on, checked the charger and there is power coming through. Any help please.
