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.)

i swear it says its charging, but its been at 46% for the past week. i've been letting it charge and trying different outlets but nothing seems to be working. help??
 

A:MY comp wont charge

Well, 2 things come to mind. Either the charger is not working ( do u have a voltmeter that you can use for verification?); or the battery is past it's ability to achieve a full charge. Do either of them sound reasonable?

Hi, I have recently recieved my HP Split X2 back from HP last week because the docking station would charge but the computer would not and now it's the opposite. I turned on my computer it was working fine, I plug it in to charge and i notice that the battery icon didnt change to charging so i unplugged it and plugged it back in and nothing so i undock the computer and that charges just fine i place it back and next thing i know it shuts off on me. i press the power button and nothing but when I hold it down the Windows button on the computer stays glowing if i continue to hold the power button and if i undock it the led light is red. Also if i have it plugged it the windows button will flash 4 times and on the 4th time itll stay lit up until i release it I just got my computer back and  it's acting up again i would really appreciate a way to fix this

Hi, My laptop was not charge, I was not able to check the percentage of the battery & all of a sudden it shut down. I cant even remember if I shut it down or it shut down on its own, because I went to th rest room.. Few hours later I plugged it in the charger but t seems like it's not charging and then i tried to turn it on but its still not working. I need Help ASAP :-(  

A:LAPTOP WONT CHARGE AND WONT TURN ON

It would help if you posted the product number or complete product name. You have only identified the notebook model series that it came from and that is not quite specific enough. Identify it and I will be able to give you instructions on performing a hard reset of your notebook. Is it still in warranty?Check your warranty status Here. Does the power\charge LED light up when a power adapter is connected to it?

My laptop keeps shutting down and then rebooting, it has been happening a lot. A few days ago it just shut down, while it was charging and it would not turn back on. It still won't. I lost the original charger, but I'm using a charger that fits it. I have been charging it for a day or two and it won't turn on! I need my laptop and I can't really afford to buy a new battery, I heard they are really expensive. My laptop is an Acer, Aspire 5742 series. Please help. ):

A:My laptop wont turn on or charge

If you don't have the original charger and you are using a charger not designed for your laptop voltage, amps and watts you most likely damaged your laptop. (Capacitor or resistor on the motherboard).

I call acer again they told me that i could send the chromebook back but it could be a possibility that i could pay for anything they fix which i think is not fair cause i have a year guarranty, and it was about three months that i have bought it. so before sending the chromebook i tried to plug it in to see if it would work and to my surprised the charging led turn on and minutes later the chromebook turn on and it was charging fine. my happiness didnt last long cause three days later it did the same thing it wont turn on or charge again.

A:i have a acer c720 it wont charge or turn on

vira,
 
Sorry to hear that you are having charging issues. I'd like to clarify a few things about your post, to make sure I understand what you are trying to explain.
 

"...I call acer customer servise but they say the didnt know what it was so they send a new charge to see if that was the proble but it wasnt."

How was the determination made that this wouldn't fix the problem?
 

"I call acer again they told me that i could send the chromebook back but it could be a possibility that i could pay for anything they fix which i think is not fair cause i have a year guarranty, and it was about three months that i have bought it."

The technician you spoke with was probably just giving the standard disclaimer, but they also give the same disclaimer if the description of the problem sounds like it might be something that is outside of the stadard manufacturer's warranty.
 

"so before sending the chromebook i tried to plug it in to see if it would work and to my surprised the charging led turn on and minutes later the chromebook turn on and it was charging fine. my happiness didnt last long cause three days later it did the same thing it wont turn on or charge again."

This sounds like a little bit of charge left in the battery, not an issue fixing itself unfortunately.
 
It sounds to me like there is a charging problem, which based on your post here doesn't sound like anything that is outside of the standard manufacturer's warranty. I'd love to see if I c... Read more

hey, i just finished putting together a pc for my grandpas office, ive checked like 81239812 times, everything is connected properly. When i hit the power button, nothing happens. Not even an attempt to boot, no fans turn on, nothing.

any suggestions??
 

A:New comp wont turn on

Don't worry this happens all the time! Remember to power off before disconnecting anything. Do you get any beeps? 1 beep is good - more beeps is bad and can tell you what is going wrong.
First take out the motherboard and make sure that there not too many stand-offs; any extras can short out the board.
If this is OK, check you have all the front panel connections on the right pins - an LED connection on the reset button for example will stop it booting.
If this still does not sort it, disconnect everything and take out all the cards except the front panel and power supply cables. Does it boot? Reconnect one thing at a time and that will tell you what is causing the problem.
Get back to us!

A:Comp wont turn on

Where did the bright flash come from?
If you're lucky it's just the power supply. Worst case scenario? Everything in it is fried.
I'd try a different power supply first, then take it from there.

THe Hard Driver i think is the problem.

the yellow LED on the front is flashing. Whatever I do to the computer it wont turn on, so I pulled the power cord out to stop it(the led that was flashing). When I plugged it back in today, it just started flashing again. The computer is off but it still flashes, . instead of turnign on It just flashes this yellow light. Any ideas? i am runing windows Xp home and a 71GB hard driver
it worked fine when changed the hard driver to another hard driver(20GB Windows Xp media center). i pluged the 71GB as slave and it steal wont turn on.
i really need to access that hard drive my entire website data is in there.
PLease if some one can help me

Thanx in advence
 

A:HELP MY COMP. Wont turn on

Hi Igli and welcome to the Techspot Forum :wave:

First its a Hard Drive not a hard driver, from your post I can only guess that the 71GB Hard Drive has failed, either mechanically or electronically.

Suggestions, go to the maufacturers website and download the test tool for the drive in question and test it, sorry to say if the test tool finds it faulty then all your data is gone.

Regards

Well my computer doesn't turn on anymore. It was working fine and then the power cord of the surge got unplugged from the outlet. Needless to say the comp wont turn on anymore. I was wondering if its the psu or the mobo that has messed up. When I plug in the comp the steady power light turns on, on the mobo which i assume it means it receiving some type of power. But when I press the power button the led lights of comp flash on and then turn back off. So does anybody know if its the psu or the mobo that is damaged?
 

A:Comp Wont Turn ON is it the PSU or the Mobo

Probably Power Supply (hard to say really)

Just for a quick option:

Remove the power cord
Hold the On button in for 30 secs (releasing all internal voltage)
Put the power cord back in (securely)
Turn on (I hope)

I'm running a Prescott P4 3.2 gHz, 1.5 gigs of ram, nVidia 5500 card, on an ASRock Motherboard model p4v88, running WinXp sp2 and every single update...

Last night I shut down the system before I left with no problems. I haven't had *any* problems with it, really, as long as I've owned it. I take great care of it and it's been devoid of viruses or disk error or anything since I've had it (only 5 months). Also no BIOS updates in a long time, and no windows updates in a few weeks.

This morning I pushed power and the fans whirred up for maybe a half a second before the system turned off. I pushed power again and the same thing happened. I unplugged everything from the back but the power, same. I opened it up (unplugged) and pulled out the ram - same. Uplugged the harddrives - same. Cdroms/pci cards/video card/ etc., until the only thing that was plugged in was the motherboard. I'm still having the same problem. The little green LED on the front of the case remains lit even tho the sys isn't on. I think the PSU is okay... what the hell could the problem be? The computer was plugged into a surge protector so I don't think it got a shock. I haven't like spilled water on it or anthing.. ahh...

ok, so lets start like this: i dont know too much about computers, but i did a little research. i know what the motherboard is and i know that the actual power button on the tower just sends the signal to switch on or off to the power supply unit... And i havent done anything to my computer recently just have gone online. So All i did was shut my computer down last night, and it WOULDNT TURN ON this morning.
- i already tried unplugging and plugging back in, and changed the the power bar. everything else on the bar works (my light, the monitor, the dsl box, and the speakers) except the computer base.

My problem is that my computer runs slow. I'm on XP and have several files for our customer base; email is huge but I keep most of them in archives in my Outlook 2007 I have 3 different inboxes one for my main corp email, one for voice mails through Call Pilot and the other for the department I run. I also have an ACCESS database that runs I open and store information in for purchases of our customers since 2009.

Not every day but several days throughout a month my computer will begin to lag similar to how your pc reacts when it's updating new files from Microsoft and along with this the computer begins to run loudly like a jet engine going to take off - it's really not that loud but it's noticeable.

I have given up on working with our IT team as it usually takes them quite a while sitting at my desk to complete a simple task (i'm really SOL if I need a pw to complete the task then I have to rely on them) so what I normally do is troubleshoot items through a Google search and fix it myself.

Four months ago I bought a Pavilion x2 10-n202np, and never had problems.Yesterday I put my computer to charge for the night, and when I woke up this morning the LED light was still red (indicating charging), instead of white (charged). When I click on the ON button, the computer shows a screen with an image indicating no battery, and the LED is always red when charging. A few hours ago, suddenly the LED became white and I could turn on the computer, and used it for some minutes (with 100% battery). I thought it was all fixed and turned it off, but the problem returned - it doesn't turn on and the LED is red when I put the charging cable.I think the computer is fully charged, but it doesn't recognise it somehow.Thank you in advance for any help.

Not a sound or visibility of life. It's totally dead! The only led that lights up is the charge led, it turns green but does not charge the computer at all. I have removed/reinstalled the battery and the ram module to see if anything will change but it's still dead. Do any of you have any suggestions of what it could be?

Alright, this happened like 2 months ago. A friend is trying to repair it but still hasn't found the real issue.One day the screen was shaking because I was gonna move my laptop somewhere else while open and turned on. Suddenly it turned off the way it would if you hard turned it off by holding down the power button.The issue was the screen shaking.  One day I got enough of it turning off so I unfolded the screen completely and then folded it to a position convenient to me back. It won't turn on, and the led that turns on whenever the charger is connected wasn't turning on either, not even telling me that the battery didn't have enough charge.I tried to check it on the inside and realized that it had two screws missing on the borders of the laptop (the ones at the corner under the screen bases (Reference: http://imgur.com/a/xszIy ). Consider the following:-My laptop is already 3 and a half years old.-I got it repaired 2 years ago with a "specialist" because the flex was not connected properly.-http://imgur.com/a/rsCwg the circled parts on the previous image were breaking appart, but I believe is because of the missing screws.My best bet is that the "specialist" forgot to put those screws. So, any idea what it could be? Could it be the switch or a cable that get the switch and the battery connected?Please help!

Last night I was using my laptop and out of nowhere my screen went blank but the machine stayed powered on. I rebooted and about 15 mins later the screen went blank again and the power turned off. I tried to turn it back on and it wouldn't respond. The charge indicator light won't respond either when I plug it in. The computer never told me the battery was running low either. I've tried plugging it in a few different outlets. Does this sound like a battery problem or something internal with the computer? The laptop is about 2 years old.

If it sounds like a battery, I'd have no problem buying a new one and trying it. If this sounds like an internal one though I don't want to waste my money on one and would like to put that towards a new one.

Thank you.

I have a acer tarvelmate 2480 and recently i left it charging all night, woke up and found out the adapter(power) light was blinking and when pulled out of the laptop it stopped and now it won't turn on nor charge any suggestions.

Ive already checked out this Laptop won't power on? in one of the forums but none of the advise complies.

Try another outlet.
Take out the battery and try it with the ac adapter\power cord plugged in.
Try another AC Adapter or Power Cord.

One of the two is probably faulty.

My laptop completely shutdown midway through watching a video on Amazon and now won't charge or switch on, laptop stated it had power when it switched off. When charger is plugged in no lights come on. I have tried a new ac adapter and still nothing, also attempted a hard reboot and no luck there either. Any idea what it could be?

Hp won't charge. This is an HP refurb and it has worked fine since I bought it in May, until recently when it suddenly stopped charging. I've checked the charging cable and there is no damage, likewise no damage to laptop input. I've tried it at several outlets in my home to assure it wasn't the issue. This model doesn't have an accessible battery. It is completely dead and will not power on. Should I order a replacement cable or take it in for new battery or repair??

Hello,I'm really disappointed with my HP laptop which is not even a year old.It has hardly been used. I used it last night and it was fine. Today I plugged it in and tried to turn it on.. It was charging and the power button was flashing but it would not turn on.I left it charging for a while and then returned to try and turn it on. This time when I tried it made a strange noise as though it was literally dying and then suddenly the light behind the power button and the LED that indicates it's charging, both died out.I have tried taking the battery out, draining the residual energy, using it without a battery.... Nothing.I suspect it is a problem with the laptop as oppose to the charger as the laptop WAS charging, it just would not turn on.. And after the computer made the dying sound it will not light up at all.Help would be appreciated. I'm so frustrated as I desperately need to use my laptop right now for work and I am not in a position to buy a new one.

Alright, so, my friend has a Zaio model pcg-61a12l laptop running on Windows 7. Earlier today we were at school trying to use it but it wouldn't turn on and she didn't have the charger. We just assumed it had died.
She took it home, and told me that she tried to plug in her laptop and it would not charge. The light on the charger is on, so it's not plugged into the wrong outlet or anything, but the laptop is not receiving any charge and is still not turning on.

She's freaking out because it's a pretty expensive laptop and doesn't want her father to get mad about it.

I asked if she had downloaded anything or banged it against something and she said she hasn't. That she had even tried taking the battery out and putting it back in and it still won't work.

Any ideas? It's hard because I don't have the laptop with me, I'm on the phone with her /: But I'll have it tomorrow if it's not working then, so any ideas will be MUCH appreciated.

She's only had the laptop for about a month

Hey Elegiacxiii

Try these steps, this has proved helpful to many users having this problem.

1. Disconnect the AC Supply

3. Connect the AC Adapter
4. Startup

IMPORTANT: Before you try out these remaining steps, be sure to create a restore point, lest some problem may creep in. (Go To Control Panel --> System and Security --> System --> System Protection (on the left pane) --> Create).

5. Open Device Manager
Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (sometimes you may have only one, this is perfectly okay)
6. Shutdown your Vaio
7. Disconnect the AC Supply
8. Insert the battery
9. Connect the AC Adapter
10. Startup

i have this hp elite book 6930p which doesn't charge when plugged on power. initially when the problem started I will rotate the power cord around the charger port and when it is a certain position it will just charge but recently it doesn't anymore. whenever it is on and plugged in something pops up telling me that I should use a suitable HP charger that the power rating of the current charger is below the acceptable standard. the original charger that came with the laptop is 19.5v but the current one I am using is 18.5 and it has been working perfectly fine until recently when I changed my hard disk and windows which has not been drived. pls what can I do?

My laptop is just over a year old and is not heavily used. When trying to use it today, it turned off, despite being plugged in and now will not charge (no light comes on, even when connected to a power source). It looks from the forums as though this is a known issue. I'm really disappointed as it was an expensive product and should not fail after a year. Has anyone been able to resolve this?

My laptop won't charge. It's plugged in, the charge cord is brand new, but nothing is happening and the battery is drained so I can't turn it on. This happened last week, and using the hard reset steps, I was able to charge and turn the computer. However I've run into the same problem today and the hard reset isn't working this time. Does anyone know what the problem might be or how to fix it? Thanks!!

Hello, I recently purchased a P51S laptop and last night it drained the battery. Now it won't respond to anything-- the indicator lights do not come on when I plug in the AC adapter. I tried to use the press-and-hold power button for 20 seconds solution but the laptop has two batteries (one internal and one that can be removed) so it didn't work. How can I start it up?
