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.

My area had a freak high humidity event earlier this year, that caused water to condense on basically everything overnight.  It got to my laptop.  It doesn't power on when the power button is pressed.  However, I tinkered with it, and realized I can force a start by detaching the power button board from the motherboard, then briefly shoving the wire ribbon into the socket until it makes contact, then removing it.  The laptop can then boot regularly.  It can't successfully boot if the ribbon is left securely in the socket.  I never touch a button during any of this.  It seems this is likely a ruined button pad, right?

Hi everyone,  I've had my Yoga 720 for a few months and I have really enjoyed this laptop. I've had a few issues and wanted to reach out to see if it was fixable in setting or something I should reach out to Lenovo directly. Before this, I was using a Mac so this platform is new to me. Any suggestions are appreciated. 1. Power Button: I've noticed that when my screen goes to sleep I've had to push the power button in order for it to 'wake up'. This has not only been slightly irritating but also very slow. I've noticed that it takes a really long time for it to wake up. I was wondering if there was a way for this to be turned off? This way if I open my laptop it goes to the lock screen or if it falls asleep while open I can press a key instead of having to wait for the button to work. I've also noticed it turns the keyboard light on before the screen. not sure if this happens to anyone else too? 2. Key Board: I'm in college so writing papers and forums is an everyday thing for me. Something that has been happening recently is when I'm in the middle of typing, all of a sudden a 'ping' noise sounds and my keyboard stops typing. At first, i thought maybe it was my palm touching the touchpad causing the courser to move to a different area of the screen so I turned the sensitivity down. But this still happens, at times I'm not even touching the pad and the noise sounds and not only am I no longer typing but the course is somewhere different, at ti... Read more

Hey, About 5 months ago i decided to swap my HDD for an SSD, for some extra speed. However, when opening the laptop i broke the ribbon cable off the power button board. In the last 5 months i tried buying a replacement from ebay. I have bought boards from 3 different sellers, and not one of them worked. They all showed the same behavior; plugging and then unplugging the cable from the motherboard started the computer, and as soon as i put the cable back in, the computer shut down. I used a multimeter to see what was going on, and it turns out the new boards did not switch anything, whereas the original board switched when the button was pushed (of course). Is there a way i can purchase an official replacement?  Thanks in advance!

A friend of mine has a inspiron 620, where the motherboard has died.
He ordered a replacement and I switched the motherboard over for him.
But now when ever he turns on the machine he gets this power button cable failure message. I've gone back inside and checking all the connections. It obviously works because the button turns the machine on.

Any idea on how we solve this? Even if it's just a way to disable warning messages.

I have a Dell Studio 1555 that the right side of the lcd bezel popped out on and the 3 wires to the power button all broke loose.  I haven't a clue what the attachment order on the power switch board should be.  I can identify position 1 because it is marked on the board.  Any help in the placement for the blue, white and green wires would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

I have a Dell Studio 1555, pretty old at this point, but it died (i.e. the powerbutton got disconnected) suddenly and I'd like to get my files off it.  I did a little research, but it seems like for the 1555 model, the wifi and powerbutton are not bundled together, see http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/studio1555/en/SM/display.htm#wp1179838
Any other ideas?  I like the rewiring idea, seems to need the least soldering, is there a way to change some other button to be the powerbutton?

Hi, I recently let my friend borrow my Lenovo V570 laptop while I was out of town because he wanted to fix the keyboard which did not work at all. The keyboard was removed and reinstalled with a new one but a worse problem was created. The power button cable was removed and the plastic piece that locks it was lost. I cannot afford to pay for computer repair or a new motherboard, I know its still good since the battery light is on and charges when plugged in.

Now I cannot turn on my laptop at all and I need it for school ASAP. I read through the maintenance manual many times for this laptop but it does not say exactly what each one of these inputs are for. So my plan was to remove the plastic lock from the cable for the touchpad. At this point I dont care if the keyboard or touchpad works (I will use USB keyboard and mouse) I just need to be able to power it on and working USB ports.
So I unplugged the plastic lock from the input I believe was the touchpad and tried to install it in the power button cable input since it looks like the same size. Problem is it is very small and difficult to work with and when I tried to install it I slightly bent one of the pins (shown in photos below.

If I carefully straighten out the pin on the cable input and try it again (any tips would be appreciated in doing this) do you think the plastic lock I removed will fit in the power button cable input? Also are these plastic lock pieces hard to find if I need a replacement?

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)

My Yoga S1 has contradictory, intermittent power issues that I'm trying to chase down. Culprits are bad power bric/cord/plug or power socket on mother board or power board that feeds into power button/led on. One day it blacked out and wouldn't restart to hard drive or windows stage. I did get an error code which I can't remember 5100 or 5500 poss?, that seemed to indicate the power board or ribbons to that needed replacement or re-attachment. So fiddled with it and it did fire up in windows all ok. Then ran out of power and died again. power button wouldn't light up. plugging in power unit did light up led as getting charge. Left it overnight and then it miraculously charged up. pushed power button light up twice then nothing. took out power board/detached ribbon, then it fired up to windows, fixed some hd errors and has been restarting without problems. Except now there is no plug showing on battery icon when plugged in. So not recharging but I'm sure the battery is good. And logically, the power brick and plug must be feeding electricity into laptop to get it to recharge enough to start up.

Hi every one,
Recently I purchased new PC,
After installing windows XP Pro SP3 I found that there is a missing button in Power option properties. The missing button is (When I press the sleep button on my computer), I can find only (When I press the power button on my computer).
My system configuration is as follow
Mother board Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Rev 1.1
My graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows XP SP3
RAM 4Gb Kingston DDRII
CPU Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz
It worth saying that I can shutdown, hibernate or put my PC into sleep mode, so the functions are working but only the button is missing.
I will appreciated very much if some can advise me how to restore the missing button. Is there some option in BIOS that will enable this button?
I contacted Gigabyte customer support, but they directed me to Microsoft, I also contacted ATI but they directed me to Microsoft or BIOS settings. In my BIOS I can't find any option that may affect this button. Any advise will be appreciated
Best regards

A:[SOLVED] Button of (When I press sleep button) is not available in my Power option pr

Does the case actually have a separate Sleep Button? I suspect it's not even connected, as the motherboard manual doesn't show a connection for a Sleep Button, only a Power Button.
Windows Power Options won't list it, as it doesn't exist.

If you have a Sleep Button on the keyboard, it might not be listed in Power Options either. That would be up to the Driver software to add that option. You may have to use the software that came with the keyboard to configure the sleep button on the keyboard.

So Dell made a really terrible decision.  They have a transparent strip in the power button for an LED light to indicate if the power is on.  A power indicator is a given in any laptop, no matter how cheap it is.  However, Dell in all of it's genius decided to not include an LED bulb on laptops up to the Inspiron 7000 Series, despite leaving a transparent slot for it.  Seriously, what happened to this brand?!?  Do children make these laptops now?
I want to fix this, as my laptop is no longer returnable and a power indicator is absolutely necessary.  So the only thing I can think of is replacing it with one from the 7000 Series somehow (with some help probably).
This is a Dell Inspiron 5559.  I also have an Inspiron 5547.  Not sure which exact 7000 model I should get the part for...
Are they compatible?
Is there an easier way? Like how Fn+H turns on the hard drive indicator?
Thanks.

I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

Hi, I am having a problem with booting up my computer. Everytime I turn the computer on, the HDD light comes on but the power light doesn't. When I press the reset button, everything starts working and the computer boots up. I think the problem might be the wires that get plugged into the motherboard.

Hey folks,

I'm trying to hook up a new 1TB hard drive on my old dell dimension 8200. I had both hd slots already filled so I removed the original slave drive to make room, and connected the the new 1TB SATA drive via an adapter that plugs into the slot on the hd and turns into the IDE connection (with pins) and power supply input on the other side,.

The SATA drive came with no jumper, and I read that the jumper settings for SATA had different meanings anyway. Not sure how the motherboard would respond, I started going thru the configs, borrowing the jumper from my old drive to use on the SATA

IDE drive:.....master...master...master..master...master...cable select...cs.....cs
SATA drive:..none......1/2........3/4........5/6.......7/8.......none...........1/2....3/4

etc...

I always get one or more of the following error messages in various combiations.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found
Primary hard disk drive 1 not found
Plug and play configuration error (x3)

Then I gave up and hooked my old drive back up the original way and it was recognized and the OS booted without hesitation.

So... Anyone have any experience connecting SATA drives to IDE and/or can offer some insight? I must have my TB of storage
***update*** I found the master/slave jumper on the adapter. tried both settings, no luck there either. more specifically: drive 0 (ide) set to master, no jumper on the sata drive itself, tried both settings on adapter.
 

A:connecting a SATA HD to an IDE cable/board

I don't know about connecting SATA drives to IDE connector.. You'd propably have better luck getting a add-on PCI SATA controller card, or a USB cable to connect it. The onboard IDE controller propably won't understand how the SATA drive is configured... Although the adapter is supposed to make it.

Toshiba Satellite A25-S2792 w/ XP & P4 has greenpower chord is lit and yellow battery light is flashing when power chord is plugged in. After I press the power button, the power chord light changes to yellow, begins flashing and the battery light goes out. Removing the battery gives the same results. Pressing and holding power button down for 20 seconds w/ battery out yields same result as well. Suggestions?

Hello,
After putting my computer into sleep mode last night, I was unable to get it to boot into windows this morning. When i pressed the power buttong, everything turn on and working (all fans are functional, gpu power led is on, all hard drives & cd drives are functional. But the problem is, the screen to my monitor is blank. I also noticed that my usb aren't working (mouse connection light isn't on). I tried a soft power off by holding down the power button but no luck. The system does not turn off no matter how long I hold it. The only way to turn it off is by pulling the power supply cord or turning the power supply switch off.

My pc build:

AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz Socket AM3+ 6 core processor
ASUS ENGTX 560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 Geforce GTX 560
ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard
COOLMAX ZU-700B 700W ATX 12V Power Supply
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB) 240-pin DDR 3 SDRAM 2133 (PC3 17000)
Prolimatech PRO Panther 120mm CPU Cooler
NZXT Phantom PHAN-001RD case


THE PROBLEM: Computer turn on with everything running as usual, but shows blank screen on monitor. Cannot soft power off by pressing power button.

Things I tried:

Clear CMOS by removing battery and switching pins
Running with 1 4GB RAM instead of 2, move the ram around the slots & alternate which Ram is used.
Check my monitor by testing it with another computer
Tried pulling the PS plug and holding the computer power button for 1 min
Test the GPU with another computer & it runs fine

Hello,

Is it possible that you can test with another compatible PSU? I would strongly suggest doing so.

Also try the following steps:
?Make sure that the (internal) speaker is connected to the motherboard
?Remove all memory and attempt to boot the PC
?You should get the no memory beep errors

If the Power Supply is in working order and no beeps are present then it can be indicative of a faulty motherboard.

For troubleshooting purposes it may be a good idea to remove the components from the case and bench test to rule out a short.

recently bought a Dell Inspiron 14 5459 on June 12, 2016 and first thing I noticed is that to turn on the laptop I need to press and hold down the power button at least for 3 seconds in order for the laptop to boot up, this seems strange, I brought up this issue at the Dell Store where I bought the laptop and the sales people there told me that they noticed this in most Inspiron models.  Is this normal?

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
This is unusual we would suggest you to check with another system to see if the same happens.
Kindly provide us with the service tag and email address.
Thanks

Why does shutting down the computer, removing the AC Adapter, removing the battery (if it is a laptop), and holding down the power button for 30 seconds fix problems in one's computer. I was recently corrected in a post of mine that this does not actually do anything unless one removes the 3 volt battery from the motherboard, but I know this is not true from experience. Here is the correction I am referring to from a more experienced member:

The motherboard has a 3 volt battery installed in it. This battery provides just enough power to retain all of the BIOS settings regardless of the state of the main power or the power supply. Following the steps above will not reset the BIOS or the CMOS chip.

You can reset the BIOS defaults by selecting that option from within the BIOS settings. Usually on the Exit menu.

To reset the CMOS (Clear the CMOS chip) there will be either a jumper on the motherboard to perform this function with, or newer boards have an actual reset button.

The above procedure will work to restore the BIOS defaults if you add the step:
2b - remove the 3v battery.
But it will not clear the CMOS.


The reason I know that doing the hardware reset I described initially works:

Further information; this is what my manufacturer of my laptop suggested for my USB issues View Document. After step B. of the power cycle directions, my computer works fine.

Edit: I have skipped all the steps prior to the power cycle, and it still fixes my problem. It is not a software update that is fixing the problem.

Hi, so I have had a powering issue with my previous power supply which was the Corsair CX600W so i purchased a newer power supply - the EVGA SuperNova G2 550W. I unhooked my old psu, hooked up my new one and the PC turned on and I turned it back off from the power button on the case. I also hava a boot drive problem so I unplugged the sata cables from my SSD and wanted to try to turn on the PC with only my HDD. I did this with the PSU switched off and the power cord unplugged. When I tried turning the PC on again the PSU made a clicking noise and nothing turns on. The motherboard Led's are lit up so it is definitely getting power but when I go to turn the computer on it just makes a quick clicking noise and nothing turns on. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
 

A:Power Supply makes clicking noise when I press power button

You may just need to drain the power off from the power supply and try again. Unplug the power to the power supply, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then plug it back in and try to turn on the computer again. If that doesn't put the old power supply back in and see if the PC works, or was the old one dead? If the PC works with the old one and not the new one then you may have gotten a faulty power supply.

Hello,

Hoping someone here can offer some advice? I own a Dell studio xps 435t-9000 that is a couple years old. I recently replaced my harddrive and since then (don't know if it's a coincidence or not) I'm having another problem. After I installed it, the first time my computer went into sleep mode/hibernation I couldn't wake it up. Power light was flashing white. Eventually I shut it down manually and then it wouldn't boot. Had a solid amber light, no power except the power supply. Fans not working. I unplugged everything and made sure it was all good. Wouldn't start. Left it overnight and plugged it in the next morning. Started up. Worked great for about 7 hours and then just randomly shut down, no errors or anything. Same deal. Wouldn't start, amber solid power light. Let it sit for awhile, reseated everything and wouldn't start.Gave up for awhile, tried a few hours later and it started. I read a few boards pointing to the power supply being bad or not powerful enough. However, I replaced the power supply about 6 months ago with a Corsair 600 which is plenty power. Could still be an issue perhaps but seems odd it would die in that little time. I also replaced my graphics card if that matters. Finally the last time I checked all the plugs I also took out the board batter for a few minutes to try and "reset" things. Not sure if that matters, either.

So, I'm at a loss where to go from here. I could replace the power su... Read more

Memory can cause the problems you are having. Make sure the memory is seated , Then run a memory program such as memtest on It let it run for a while and see if it shows you any errors.Also check and make sure you are not having a overheating problem

I have a HP Split X2 Model 13-m110dx.  I replaced the LCD/Digitizer assembly, which required I remove all hardware from the display assembly.  My question focuses on the cable that connects the motherboard to the audio/HDMI/Dock board (item 7 on page 17 of http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03958968.pdf).  The cable of interest is the left one (with a 45 degree bend in it), and how it connects at either end.  A pic is below with the cable (yellow/gold). My question:  Is this a ZIF connector or do I need to lift up the front to release it?  A portion of the gray part of the connector broke off when I tried to lift it, assuming it was a clamp style ribbon cable connector.  The other end of the cable connects to the Motherboard with the same type connector.  I pulled that one out, but it's unclear if that is damaged if I did that wrong. Problem:  The HP Upgrade/Parts manual doesn't define how to disconnect these cables.  After reassembly, the keyboard/dock no longer connects, so what I have now is a standalone tablet w/o any USB ports or keyboard.  I ordered a new audio board in the hopes that resolves the issue. Anyone have any input on this?

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium and when using Libraries, the options to select Arrange by Type etc seem to be disabled. It seems to be locked on Folder.
On my other computer with Windows Professional it was possible to list files by Type, Name date etc.
Is this feature disable on the Home version, or is there some setting that needs to be changed?

Weird one this,
 
my wife is running a brand new computer with Windows 8.1 installed.
 
One of her app's given to her by her employer (on her intranet) which collects financial information from customers has a "Confirm" button. Occasionally (once or twice a day) when she clicks it immediately the windows "run" box (Win-R) pops up but the only letter the keyboard now generates is "r". I assume that the run box opens because of the "r".
 
So now if she goes to any open app/window and types she gets "rrrrr" etc.
 
So far the only solution seems to be to reboot - however she gets time docked off her pay if this happens, so it is not merely an inconvienience.
 
My only thought was that somehow some kind of sticky key sequence has been initiated, or that a key was stuck down on the keyboard (maybe ALT) - but this is not the cause.
 
Any thoughts as to what might be causing this and/or how to escape from the situation without a reboot?
 
Cheers,
 
Drewyd

A:clicking a button in app causes the keyboard to type "r"

 I had a similar problem on one of my Windows 8 systems.  I went to the local computer store, and bought a $4 keyboard, switched, and haven't had the problem since.  For $4 it's sure worth a try!
 
Good luck.
