Preferred Solution: Help. My laptop won’t let me on

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.)

Now whenever I try turn on the laptop there is nothing but a white led power light (lightbulb) and a green battery light, whenever I hold the power button down these lights go off , I also cannot take battery out as it?s built in.
Anyone can advise please ?

Hello. I own Dell Vostro 5568. Earlier today i was surfing the internet and my laptop just shut down instantly just like that despite the fact that i had completed charging it like 30 minutes before. Seemed weird and i couldnt turn it back on. Then i connected the charger and i could turn it on. I just let it go. An hour later the same thing happened but now i cant turn it back on even with charger plugged in. Even holding the power button does not help. Please what can i do?

A:Laptop won’t start up

Hi Koldys,Thanks for posting.Apologies that your computer is not working as expected.Have you tried taking the battery out and using the adapter plugged in?  If it works, then it would indicate the battery has failed.  If it still does not work, then the charging/power circuit is probably at fault.  If that's the case, the motherboard would have to be replaced.

Firefox won?t connect to a network. The WiFi icon has disappeared from my task bar; the icon is enabled and won?t show up in actions. In Network and Internet Settings there is no WiFi option. For Network Status it just shows a line and won?t show status at all, troubleshooting does nothing, network reset did nothing. My friends who?s good with computers had no idea.

I?m awful with technology and have tried to follow several help walkthroughs but none seem to have my problem and don?t work. I recently followed some tutorials to speed up my laptop because it was super slow and I don?t know whether I messed something up so it doesn?t register WiFi anymore.

Can somebody please help me or send a link to another tutorial?

Hi there,i just unpacked my laptop from a flight and now it suddenly doesn?t turn on anymore.when I press the power button nothing happens, no indicator leds, nothing. When I release the button I hear that thud noise you hear when you manually kill a laptop by keeping the button down. Now the weirdest thing: when I plug in the adaptor the fans start spinning like crazy, immediately when I plug it in, I don?t even need to push the power button.the same thing happens when the laptop is unplugged and I keep the power/reset button down for a longer time, the fans start spinning out of control but no leds, no nothing, and they immediately stop when I let go.If anyone has any clue how this could be or what to do please tell me. I will contact the seller on Monday (I have had this laptop for 2.5 years, thank god the insurance runs for three years) but as I?ve just moved to another country I?m not sure if that?s going to work out.Any help or suggestions appreciated.

My laptop had a problem with the hard drive (or so it seemed because it was unable to load up) What happened with the laptop was I tried to turn it on, the computer will load for a few seconds, then it will turn off. (So it never made even to the Windows logo screen).

My friend took it to the technician and the technician said it was a hard drive failure and needed to buy a new hard drive and install Windows onto it. The technician was going to charge $165 for new hard drive and Windows installation.

I thought $80 for a new hard drive than another $85 for a installation was overpriced. So I ordered the hard drive on my own and planned on replacing the hard drive myself.

So, I replaced the hard drive. What is going on now is that if I press the power button, I see the red light on the power button. Then in less than 5 seconds or so, the computer goes off. There is nothing on the screen during those 5 seconds.

This laptop is quite broken down, the CD Rom sometimes does not work. But regardless, with less than 5 seconds, it was quite hard to even eject the cd-rom. So I am not quite sure how am I supposed to go on and continue with the installation and such if the computer does not even turn itself on.

Now, is this really a hard drive problem or something else? Please help. Thank you very much in advance.

A:Laptop hard drive replaced, won’t boot up properly, shuts off in less than few second

$165 is actually a reasonable price.

If you remove the new drive, does it still shut down in 3 seconds?

Yesterday I ran into some issues with my computer hardware - in the middle of a LoL game my computer randomly powered off instantly with no warning or anything and would not turn back on. After hours of attempts I realised when I removed the graphics card (Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 1x6pin connector) from my system it would power up on the integrated graphics, the motherboard green light (ASUS Z87-K) is always working also. I thought because the computer wouldn?t power up at all that there was a fault with the power supply (Cooler Master 500W) so I purchased another one (Corsair VS550W) and tried that. Still no power up with the graphics card connected, at first it would work without the graphics card also but after some tampering, replugging and cable managing now is not turning on at all, even WITHOUT my GPU attached with this brand new PSU. I?ve had the PC for just over a year and was advised maybe my old psu had just died but that appears not to be the case. I?ve also tried removing non essential components and booting but still nothing. Maybe there was something I could do in the bios and alter the settings? I did used to run the multi display bios setting which would allow me to use the integrated graphics witn one monitor and the gpu graphics with my main monitor just because I didn?t have two VGA ports (I use VGA because I have two old tv?s instead of dual monitors)

PS: I also realised upon inspection that the fan on my PSU was facing the wrong way, bl... Read more

A:PC won’t boot at all

First of all, the vs series from corsair is the lowest quality unit corsair sells. It is NOT designed nor intended for use with a real video card. Even corsair says as such
The Corsair VS550 is a great choice if you?re building a home or office system with lower power demandsClick to expand...

Installing that pw supply did nothing for troubleshooting.

Here is what I would do;
1 First and foremost, get hold of a pw supply that is actually designed for gaming or other stressful endeavor
2 Install the quality pw supply
3 Now test with and without your video card. It may be that your video card failed however no one can tell you until you use parts that are designed for what you are doing with the system

Help! We have a 2 month old P51 and it shut off while on charger power and now won?t turn back on. It is still plugged into the charger but  none of the indicator lights are lit. i have checked all the connections and switched power outlets.Thoughts as to whether this could be an issue with the charger or the computer itself? Thanks in advance. 

A:P51 won’t power on

First thing is when you plug in the charger, does the little THinkPad red led flash 3 times on the top ? If not, then the power block is not being recogized. Remove the power cable and the battery, press and hold the power button on the ThinkPad for 10 seconds. Then, before putting the battery back in, keep the lid closed. Plug in the power cable. Does the red led on the "i" of ThinkPad blink 3 times? If not, one of two things could be dead:  Either the powerpack (more common) or something inside the ThinkPad. I would strongly suggest that you find yourself another powerpack and see what happens...

The other day I was just surfing the web when all of a sudden my PC turned off without warning (the system had been on for some hours).
Thinking not much of it, I turned it back on again, continued using it and it has been running fine for the last few days, including running some intense programs, (rendering, etc).

Yesterday it happened again (whilst surfing), and now it wont turn back on.
Now Im not saying it definitely isnt the psu, although the psu is practically brand new (see my last problem). However the LED on the motherboard and LEDs on my peripherals (card reader, wireless keyboard receiver, etc) are all on.

If I power off and on via the switch on the back of the psu, and then press the on button, the power LED on the case will flash once, but after that nothing.

Ive tried unplugging all the drives from the psu to see if it will boot, but it still will not.

I'm thinking that the MB may be dead.
Any ideas?

Big problem!

This morning, when i turned on my pc, everything was fine. Booted up as usual. Then later, when i had to shut it down, i accidently pressed the sleep mode button. PC did enter sleep mode and the power LED was blinking as it should. but i couldnt get it out of sleep.
So i was forced to do a hard shutdown.

I removed the power cable from the PSU, plugged it back in later. Started up PC and wow... the power light in the front panel didnt work. PC started tho... All fans working and after like 5 seconds the PC shut itself off and then started up again. Monitor got NO signal. PC sounded fine. No beeps or anything. Hard drive didnt start making the sound that its reading or looking for anything. I was forced to do another hard shutdown (hold the power button for 5sec) . I tried taking out RAM sticks. My keyboard is not getting any power. CD/DVD drive seems to be working. All cables and components are plugged in correctly. Most of the components are pretty new.

ASUS P5Q SE PLUS Motherboard (Less than a year old)
Club3d HD4850 (OC Edition) (1 Year old)
4GB ram (2x1GB 1x2GB) (1GB sticks are like 3 years old and 2GB like 2)
Xilence 580W PSU (Bought in the same time as GPU)

Hi, I?m not %100 sure if this is the right forum/topic, but my desktop is an Alienware x51 R2 running windows 10 and BIOS version A09 if that matters. My computer attempts to boot up and gets to the screen where it has an f2 and f12 boot settings which I fiddled around with a little, then gets to the Alienware loading screen before windows login but after about 5-10 seconds the screen goes black then the process repeats. I use this computer for mostly gaming and YouTube, studying when needed. This all began when I was playing a game, I saved the game but left it open, then went to YouTube and my screen just went black. I tried Alt f4ing a million times but eventually restarted my PC. Everything was fine until I tried loading up the game, all of the sudden my screen went white, then to a windows screen where it said windows couldn?t be loaded and asked me if I wanted to troubleshoot or reset my computer. My computer was a little cluddered and I thought a fresh reset would fix everything, but I was incredibly stupid to think that was the case. PC Reset got to %100 then it tried to reboot. Essentially, my computer threw itself into a boot loop and when the f2 f12 screen comes up, I mess with a few settings but nothing works. Please help me, and I can?t get into my computer which is why I can?t get you specific specs, sorry. To share my pain I typed this all on my 5S, just thought I might lighten the mood.
