Q: HP DV6-3000 Getting NO power. No response from power button ...

Hey folks! Thanks for checking out my post, I've looked online, but couldn't find a solution, so I thought I'd make my own post. Some details: This laptop is an HP DV6-3064 ca. It was purchased refurbished about a year ago, and has had almost no problems to this point. I was at a friend's house using my laptop, and everything was working fine. Shut down, packed it up, took it home, pulled it out, pushed the power button, and nothing. I didn't leave it in the sun, or bump it on anything. Just brought it home and it wouldn't turn on, with no warning signs or anything. Now I looked into power issues and I can guarantee my battery as well as the AC adapter are perfectly fine. I also tried the hard reset but still get nothing. The light by the DC jack does not turn on when I plug it in. Now, I'm relatively tech-savvy, and since my laptop was no longer under warrantee I figured I'd check it out for myself. (Don't really have the resources to take it to a repair shop). The DC jack looked like it might have had some wear on it, so I ordered a new one from a reputable seller on eBay, replaced the old one, and nothing changed. I'm completely at a loss here. Weird thing is, when I have the laptop opened, and plugged in, I can feel the motherboard heat up a bit. Not sure if it's supposed to do that, but I know there is power going to it, even though the DC jack light still does not light up. If anybody has any insight, PLEASE let me know, and if you need any more information I'll happily give it. Thanks for your attention!

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.)

Bannor, The LED on the DC jack usually is an indicator of whether the AC adapter is working properly. That light is on a different circuit and does not require a good system board. If the light does not come on usually the adapter is bad. If you've already tested or replaced the adapter then the dc jack is the next step however when HP replaces this part in the repair depot they usually replace the entire board (with jack soldered on) at once. You might consider replacing the entire board. Wes

I have a week old HP DV6-2020sa Laptop. I tried to burn a CD in Windows Media Player but the CD just started skipping constantly and wouldn't write. So after 10 minutes of waiting I tres to cancel but it wouldn't let me so I had to end task on WMP.

The CD drive was still making the loud whirring noise though. So I decided to shut it down. As soon as I clicked Shut Down from the Start Menu the laptop went straight off (black screen).

I tried to turn it back on but nothing happens. No response to the power button at all.

The light where the power cable connects to the laptop is the only sign of life.

I haven't phoned HP as their call centre is closed until tommorrow morning. It is urgent that I get back onto the laptop as my girlfriends dissertation essay for university is on there.

Please can somebody help!

Oh I forgot to mention.....

I was running the laptop off the battery at the time and there was 3/4 charge left.

I have also tried taking the battery out and just using the power cord.

This is my sister's cpu i'm talking about so i have no idea if there was an error message before the following happened:

She was booting the computer and it just shut off. There is no response from the power button. Yes all the cords are plugged in inside and outside the box. The computer is kinda old, has had major problems with XP, so is back to 98. PII 266, 312 MB ram, GeForce 2 video card, 2 WD hdds. On a possibly related note, the problem with XP was that the registry was corrupted every shutdown. Could this be an issue with the mobo? I know the ram is good, and the power supply seems okay.

Another mobo-ish issue: The comp will only go past bios loading area with 2 devices on IDE 0. It hangs as if there is no hdds in it if there is only one. Yes i checked the jumpers and such. Either hdd on IDE 0 fails boot if there's one, but passes whether it's master or slave if both are in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey,
My PC won't respond to any sort of power input at the moment (i.e. pressing the power button yields zero response. Usually my USB mouse lights up when connected, even if the PC itself is off but not anymore).

I've checked the wall socket (and have tried a few), checked the PSUs output setting and on switch, and made sure everything was plugged in properly. I did recently install a Soundblaster ZxR, but it was working fine for a couple of weeks between then and now.

I just wanted to confirm that it is likely a PSU problem rather than anything else, and what I could do to obtain a more accurate diagnosis. I don't have access to any other compatable PSUs (I have another with 4 rather than 8 pins for the CPU - sorry for my lack of technical jargon). There are no unusual smells/noises, and my only multimeter has a single prong.

My GPU is an HD6850, CPU is AMD Athlon II x4, motherboard is 870A-UD3. WD Hard Drive (it says WD10EARS on the sticker) and a Samsung BDDVD player too. The PSU is a 500W Cooler Master RS-500-PCAR-J3.

Thanks

Edit: Alright, turns out the PSU had in fact bust - the shop I took it to replaced it with a Widetech 750W PSU. Google says to upgrade immediately... How does the current PSU compare to the the original Cooler Master (in original post)?

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.

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?

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.

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

I have had my Hp laptop for 3 years now. It has been working perfectly, up until 2 weeks ago. It would not turn on when I clicked the power button. After clicking the power button, 15 minutes later I noticed it just came to life. Sometimes it doesn't turn on at all for days, but sometimes I click the power button and it boots within 15-30 minutes. When i click the power button, nothing happens at all for that duration. No fans, no lights nothing. The only light on is the power cord button that is always on when i plug it in. I did replace the power cord, and tried cleaning out the insides, it did nothing. Should i just replace the motherboard?

The power button (upper left right above the F1 key) is solid white however when I plug it in...it'll start charging for about 10 seconds and then it stops charging and the power button starts flashing white.  I've tried the shutting down, taking out the battery and pressing the power button and also holding the button to discharge. Still the same outcome. I've also tried turning it on with the battery removed and just the AC power source and it turns out and makes it past the Lenovo splash screen but loses power before getting to the windows loading screen.  Any other suggestions? Or should I just assume the charging circuit on the motherboard has failed and I should rescue my data while I can?

Greetings all, Shaun here, new to the forum.
Thought I would post this, so someone somewhere may see it one day, and it may help them. Also, maybe someone here has an idea as to what may be causing this, as I don't believe i have fixed the underlying issue, just allowed myself to continue using my machine for the time being.
So, got up this morning, made my coffee, went to the desktop - Dell Dimension 9150. Hit the power button, NOTHING. Looked at the button, and it was flashing amber, probably once every 4-5 seconds.
Great. Opened it up, checked all connections. Unplugged, held power button for 20 seconds or so, until the green LED on the MB went off. Unplugged all peripherals, plugged back in, same deal.
Opened up spare, non working PC, that has a known good power supply (700 watt), threw that into the Dell. Sane deal. Started reading different forums. Decided to try jumping the green wire on the main power cable (24 pin), WHILE PC IS PLUGGED IN. I found, that as long as I would hold the jumper into the green / black wires, it would start the fans up, everything sounded like it was starting up. Problem is, I was nervous, as I didn't know if this was going to damage anything, so i didn't want to sit there and hold it for any longer than I needed to. Well, as soon as I took out the jumper, the PC would go right back to being OFF, indefinitely.

I recently upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10. When I power down the system from the menu, my computer does not completely turn off. The procedure I use is described below:

Click Windows_Start_button > Power > Shutdown

The system closes applications and appears to initiate a shutdown procedure. Everything appears to be shut off, but my mouse is still lit up. I do notice that the fan stops and everything else appears to be completely shut down. When I was running Windows 7 before my upgrade, my system completely powered down.

I have a dual boot system with Linux, and when I power down from Linux, the shutdown is complete, so I don't think I accidentally did anything to the hardware or BIOS.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm pretty sure there is some tweak in Windows 10 that would fix this, but I haven't found it yet. Thanks for any suggestions you might be able to offer.

A:Power down button does not completely turn computer power off

3. Left click -> Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what the power button does > Change settings that are currently unavailable
4. Uncheck the box next to Turn on fast startup (recommended)

The next time you shut down the computer, it will be completely powered off. At least this worked on my machine.

I'm having issues with a Dell XPS 8500. The power button does not power on the computer at all. I tried the usual reseating everything including the battery and holding the power button in with no power cable. I ordered a new power supply and put it in but now realize it's for an 8700. The only difference is the 8700 psu has the test button and the 8500 doesn't.
If I hook up the computer to a monitor/keyboard/mouse and hold the test button in on the psu, the computer boots and functions as normal. If I let go of the test button it shuts off. Is there a way to turn the test button on all the time because that would fix it.
Is there a special way to test if the power button is broken? I unplugged the button on the board labeled F and I read something about using a screw driver to connect the pins to turn on the PC?

Hi everybody,

I tried to search on google about this, but it's not really help and it never happen to me before so I post here.

My PC was running normally for a long time, just couple weeks ago I sent my faulty video card (xfx nvidia 8800 ultra) to get warranty service and they sent me back another. The new one works fine, but a week later I tried to turn on my computer and there's no power at all. No lights on, no fan running, just no sign of power. So I check inside if there's any wire from the PSU is unplugged, but everything looks good, nothing seems wrong. I'm sure the power from the wall is good and the power switch on the back is on. So I tried to check the wired again, push the power cable to the mother harder and press the button, it worked. But that doesnt solve the problem, if I put something heavy near the PC or the desk is vibrating a little bit, the power turns off. I press the power button again it would not turn on until I open the case and press the power cable to the motherboard harder, it's on. I then close the side panel, it's off, no power.
This is really annoyed me, I dont know what else to do. What caused this problem? The power supply or the power button? Can somebody help me?

My system specs:
ECS G31T-M mobo, Intel E8400 Duo, 2x2GB RAM

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

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.

We had a power outage and afterwards tried to start computer and all I can get to is the Bios screen(keyboard functions OK) and black screen where you can pick how to start Windows (Safe Mode or Normal) but thats as far as I can get. Keyboard doesn't respond on this screen. Start Normally is highlighted and can't be changed and when I press Enter nothing happens. All lights and fans start OK. I don't have XP disc with this to reload. Any simple solutions? Thanks.

After being shutdown overnight (no issues working yesterday), the PC does not start: no leds or fans or anything. I followed the on-line troubleshooting:1. AC power adapter shows no sign of damage. Usually connected through UPS, but this AM switched to normal AC power just in case. When power adapter connected to computer, the white LED next to the power jack lights as is normal. 2. Removed battery. The battery charge indicator shows fully charged. 3. Performed hard reset (with battery removed and AC adapter disconnected) -- hold switch down for 30s. Reconnecting AC adapter, there is no change in symptoms 4. Disconnecting  AC adapter and installing the battery, there is no change in symptoms 5. Could not identify location of a lid switch, but I did fully open and close 10 times. No change in symptoms. 6. I am now leaving AC adapter & battery connected for 30 min in case there is a problem (although battery indicates no issues thorough its diagnostic test button) Can you help with any additional steps I can take to get the PC running?

Hello Lenovo Community, I got my T440p three years ago. Now it cannot power up at all. I did the following test. 1. Removed the memory modules, removed hard disk, removed optical driver.2. plug the external battery and AC adapter.3. The red LED on the A side, the dot on "i" of "ThinkPad" will blink three time. I can tell the laptop is intial powered per the manual.4. Press the power butoon, nothing displayed, the light on the power button is off, no fan running, no beep.5. Disconnect the coil-battery of BIOS, and re-connect after about 10 seconds.6. plug the external battery and AC adapter.7. The red LED on the A side blink 3 times. Press the power button. I heard 5 short beeps. The fan is running. That means the power button is still functional.8. Unplug the AC adapter and external battery (because i donot know how to stop the fan)9. Plug the AC adapter and external battery back and press the power button10. no beep, no fan running, no sound, no display.11. the output voltage of the AC adapter is 20.6VDC. the voltage of the coil-battery is 3.06VDC. both are good per the manual. I guess something going wrong on the main board, maybe the BIOS, the CPU... Any reply from you is very appreciate.

Repeat the above step, but leave the CMOS battery disconnected for at least 20 mins...
 
You will need RAM to boot, if you have two RAM modules installed try booting with only one, alternating the RAM slots.
 
If it still doesn't work, also disconnect the wlan and wwan cards, the touchpad and try again with one RAM at a time.
 
Let us know how it goes...

Hi, i have a old lenovo 3000 Y400 notenook.  Bought it from malasyia and its around 7 years old. my laptop fell and it case broke, hinges broke. But it still worked perfectly fine. this was 2 years ago, i checked it after every few months and it still worked. but i bought new laptop and sort of packed it in a pizza box, as screen had no casing and lower body was damaged as well. 4-5 months ago i removed the laptop HDD and started using as external HDD. finally found 2nd hand body for my laptop, cheap price, so decided to get the laptop fixed. BTW i bought new charger and battery few months before the incident. and also everything was working fine before i took out the HDD as i booted the device and checked. But now it won't boot. it shows power light, but as soon as i press power on button power indicator light turns off and it comes back on after few seconds. i have tried without battery, removed all possible connectors and its just abre minimum like motherboard, RAM, HDD and power switch panel to turn on power. Still same, on motherboard i can see few more lights, 3 led lights that turn on and then off in few secods span. Could it be because of dust? or something esle? because i really doesn't make sense to sped money on repairing it, because getting the 2nd hand body is the last viable option after that its better to buy 2nd hand laptop then spend money on it as it would cost me the same amount.  any suggestion or help would be appreciated. i will ...

My friend's dell dimension won't turn on. Pushing the power button does nothing. The computer was working fine recently then there was a power outage around the time. It doesn't seem like the PSU because I had it plugged in with the case open and there was a glowing green light on the motherboard which disappeared upon unplugging the computer.

Now here is exactly what happens when pushing the power button. No fans and/or indicator of being on. Nothing, no harddrive etc.
It really makes me think it is the switch.

How would I go about fixin this.
Bear with me and do try to be quick as the hurricane tomorrow may not allow me to get back on for a week.

Thanx in advance very much

Hi everyone,

I went to my PC this morning to discover it refused to turn on, and no response of any kind happening (no sounds, lights or fans operating).

My initial thoughts were that the PSU had died... so I went and picked up a new PSU, which didn't change anything. Still no response.

I'm now assuming the motherboard is faulty.

----

some factors that may or may not have anything to do with the cause of the problem:

- Dust - when I opened up the case there was a lot (almost a blanket) of dust in my zalman CPU fan, graphics card and also a little generally within the case. Although I hadn't experienced any artifacts suggesting stuff was overheating (plus it's damn cold in my house this time of year, so that probably helped)

- There was a powercut during the night - somehow this might have triggered what's caused the fault? I also had set my PC to sleep as per usual, instead of switching it off.

- The extra Front panel USB ports on the top of my case stopped working about 2 days before. I accidently tripped over a USB device plugged into it, and it twisted the port slightly, but still carried on working for the rest of the day, but at some point it stopped and I had to only use the back ports.
----

Is there any suggestions you guys have to find the cause of the problem?

cheers

Mike
 

A:Suddenly died - no power or motherboard response

Hi Mike. The power cut you mention is interesting. Did the fuse in your house trip? Are other items in the room working off the same plugs?..because thats happened to me before.

Oooh, dust will kill in the long run if it's not cleaned...

Hi all,

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 (about 5 months old) running at circa 3.2 GHz, 160GB drive and 1G RAM. Video card is a Radeon 256MB. PC was running fine. Burned a CD last night. No issues. Tried to boot up PC today and flashing amber light. Checked Dell site. Flashing amber indicates possible internal power problem. Opened casing and checked all power connections. All in place as required. Definitely power to the mother board as the green onboard LED is lit when power supply is plugged in. PC still indicating power problems (amber light still flashing). Any ideas on what to do? Could the hard drive be fried?

Thanks for your help.

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. I don't know how to correctly install them and the manual that came with the motherboard doesn't help at all. I have a GA-7IXE4 motherboard with 1000 MHZ AMD and 256 MB RAM. If anybody could assist me with this problem, please do so. If anybody knows how the wires are suppose to be plugged into the motherboard correctly, please let me know because I think that might be the main problem. Thanks.
 

A:Reset button acts as power button

It shows the proper connections on page 15 of the manual.

Neither the power on or reset button need any polarity concerns when connecting, they are both use open/closed type switches.

The reset connector is label RE, THE power connector is labeled PW.

BIOS 4.0.13 and Windows 10 Pro currently installed.
Is it possible to configure the Inspiron 14 300 series to automatically power on at a specific time?

By "power on" I mean to power on from a completely shutdown state (no sleep or hibernate).

I searched in the BIOS/Setup, but I did not see the option.

i replaced my aging dell dimension 3000 motherboard today and transferred everything over perfectly with one major exception... the power switch cable is too short and doesn't have the correct connector type (16-pin) for my biostar P4M900-M4.

can anyone offer a suggestion on how i can keep my case and change the power switch cable/connector to correct the problem????

TIA,
