Q: Chrome book 11 won't turn on after charging it

I have a chrome book 11 and I haven't used if for at least 3 months. I charged it all day with the charging light showing a solid Amber but when I tried to turn it on 7 hours latter it wouldn't turn on. When I would hold down the power button nothing would happen. Then I started going through a sequence of Amber for 2 mins then a flash of red and a flash of green and the back to Amber. What should I do?

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.)

Hi there, I have a Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows 10-edition). Which does not charge the battery, when plugging in but also in use. The taskbar indicates that the tablet is charging, but the battery still goes down (albeit much more slowly). If I shut Windows down, charging then starts correctly. Does anything else have the same problem? Has anyone managed to solve this issue? Thanks  -cycle63

I was wondering if anyone here had succesfully charged+USB hosted with the yoga book via a USB y cable or a charge and data hub? I'm an artist and I recently invested in a windows Yoga Book. I often have a USB drive, keyboard and mouse connected to the device via a powered USB hub. This is great, except for the fact I can't charge my yoga book while I do this- so the time I can spend working on projects that require both the keyboard and realpen is limited (and I like to really hunker down for many hours at a time. If I'm not using it it charges up to full in about 2 hours, which isn't bad in the great scheme but it's not always great).I know some devices support simultanious USB charging and USB hosting, but it's unclear to me if the yoga book's USB hardware in particular does. I checked the specification sheet for the intel xHCI chipset, but I'm not an engineer and the 500 pages didn't convey much to my tiny brain at all, which is why I'm asking here.

I have it set to back up every picture I take or video on my phone so it saves them online, I keep them private but if I lose my phone I will be happy to still have all my photos.

I use Google Maps a lot, I have a Gmail email account, I have a tablet with google play store thing on it, dam Google really is taking over my life lol.

Hi there

I'm going to apply to the Guinness Book of Records as I must be the only person on Planet Earth who can't get the GOOGLE CHROME browser to work on the latest version of Windows (W10 PRO X64 with all updates etc)

It just sticks forever in a "Wait"

Have uninstalled and re-installed several times. Amazing as I've got the browser to work on every other device I've ever tried it on.

I wanted it because of the Googlecast where I could cast the Audio output from the PC to the chromecast device. My remote TV speakers are much better than the local laptop ones -- I can stream standard Audio but I wanted to stream Internet radio which is another issue entirely. The Chrome browser does work for that (I've tested it on another PC).

(The standard tunein audio feed directly on the chromecast doesn't stream HD Audio streams or FLAC - my server will decode the audio streams which can then be picked up with the chromecast dongle -- but all bets are off if I can't get Chrome Browser to work !!).






Cheers
jimbo

Yesterday it got damp when water leaked from a water bottleClick to expand...

did it actually get wet ?, i suspect it did

i would allow it to completely dry out - maybe putting in an airing cupboard or somewhere warm

then take the battery out and the power adapter and hold the power key on for 60 seconds

if it still does not work , i suspect the pc has been damaged

to recover the data - you maybe able to remove the harddrive and then using an adapter - plug it in to a USB port on another PC and access the files
just depends on if the water also caused damage to the harddrive

Hi.

I'm no expert but an engineer told me (re another m/c) that there may be some protection hardware acting. An obvious example would be if the fan over the processor failed, it would overheat and burn up quite quickly. So the power is cut to stop that happening.

I bought the Lenovo G50 around 7-8 months ago from the Argos outlet account on eBay, (ignore the fact it was purchased from eBay, it is still a very good laptop). The laptop has been working great since the day it arrived, however, I went to use it today after not touching it for about 2-3 weeks and it wouldn't start I knew the laptop has very little to no charge so before I turned it on I connected the AC adapter. Nothing. The laptop didn't turn on nor did it charge either. No LED lights, no booting sound... NOTHING!
I found many solution on the web like the infamous, "take the battery out, hold the power button down and then connect adapter" technique- which didn't work at all.
I'm planning to take it to a specialist in the following week but I'm still open and desperate for other techniques which will save me money.
Thank you.

Hello all. Do please forgive me if this is not the right thread because I really need help right now.

I have an ASUS X450J laptop with a Windows 8.1 OS and I have had this problem for three days now,including today. My Laptop is unable to turn on,it was functioning normally untill three days ago when I restarted the laptop. Then the "Preparing Automatic Repair" restart loop happened. I did not know how to boot my laptop in safe mode,I tried pressing F1-F12 but it did not work. So I changed the booting to DVD through the BIOS and got in the Windows 8.1 "Repair my Computer" or something like that(I do not remember what it was called) After it was finished loading for a few seconds... nothing happened,the screen was blank and nothing showed up,though I was still able to move my mouse,there was nothing on the screen. I then got into the Windows 8.1 screen again and clicked "install" thinking it would re-install the whole thing but it just kept loading and loading... I waited for around 30 minutes.... I came back and it was still loading it said "Setup is starting". None of it worked.

I got desperate and looked for solutions online and none of them worked for me. So I opened the laptop's casing and cleaned the inside of it with tissues and cottonbuds,some parts are still dirty,like the fan and some small edges on the motherboard(I am too afraid to remove them). So I put the laptop's casing back on and I tried turning the laptop o... Read more

Has this happened to anyone else- daughter put chrome book on charge fortunately she was still at the desk when she noticed smoke coming from one corner.
As you can see from the photo it looks like a component was burning inside melting the outer casing.
It's only two months old and when initially we called Dell they claimed it wasn't under warranty. Husband called again and they are sending a courier to collect it to fix it.
I called Dell today to raise my concerns as daughter's school advises all pupils to use the same model and I was concerned this could happen to someone else.
I was told there have been no other problems with this model - let's hope this is a one-off.
Had daughter not been there I dread to think what might have happened, just wanted to check no one else has experienced a similar problem.
