Hello,  I'm having some trouble with turning on my laptop. The problem originally started when some keys on my keyboard stopped working. I cleaned the keys, restarted my laptop, tried a previous restore point and then did a hard reset after nothing worked to fix my laptop.  After hard resetting, I tried turning on my laptop and it did not turn on. So far, I've plugged in my laptop into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor directly into the wall outlet, and removed the battery and plugged in the laptop. The one thing I have noticed with my laptop is that when I plug in the adaptor, the battery and sleep lights turn on for a moment, then the sleep light turns off, and the battery light will stay on momentarily but then it will blink off after a few seconds. What else should I do? Thank you

What would be the steps to solve this?  On the external display the machine seems to run great.  I bought a new IPS screen and it looks to be in great condition.  I have no way to compare it with another screen that I know of as I only have this one (received laptop w/o a screen) and would prefer to not spend $50-$75 to test this.  My guess is that the screen is fine. 1) Check and reseat cables?2) Purchase new LCD cables?3) Remove everything (ram, hd, etc) and see if it posts?  Currently do not hear any beeps.  ... etc?  anything simple and obvious I'm missing?  Is there any way to test the screen without purchasing another one? It is NOT the duplicate/extend setting.  I have -- on the external monitor -- set it to duplicate, primary only, etc, and it had no effect.  thanks!

Hello, Wondering if someone can assist with this problem. Client called that he is having a problem with his laptop, picked it up today and he explained and demonstrated that when the laptop screen is opened and the machine is then turned on it will only display a greyish screen, but if I shut the machine off and then press the power button and almost completely close the lid the screen will function properly and then I can open it fully and it works without problem. I have taken apart the laptop and checked the connections and the cables and they all seem to be in good shape. No breaks or pinching in the wires, and all connections are secure. We have 5 of these laptops and this is the first to do this.They were all purchased approx 5 years ago and are out of warranty now. Any idea on what could be causing this problem. Thanks,

Hello,

It has been some time since I have been to sevenforums. I have missed you guys!

I was here almost every hour on the hour back when I built my PC and was installing windows7 for the first time. Now I have a new laptop and I would like some expert advice!

I bought a new, to me, Lenovo X230 Thinkpad recently and it came with windows7 installed. I am a person who enjoys simplicity, uncluttered space, and efficiency. In my desktop, and overall in my OS. Are there any tips, or guidelines for trimming down many of the programs and extraneous applications that come along with nearly every manufacturers' computers today? Should I reinstall a clean version of windows7? Is that possible with only the recovery partition on the laptop?

For example, I don't need 2 battery power applications. Either disable or remove the windows battery manager, or the Lenovo. Things like that.

I would also like to remove and backup the recovery partition from the laptop, but it doesn't have an optical drive. Then I could have more space, and only one partition. Not sure the best way to go about this. I have an external drive that I can backup the partition to.

If you want any more information about the current state of the laptop, just ask! I enjoy conversing and learning from the good people here.

Thanks again guys... glad to be back!

It won't get to start up page, just remains a blank dark screen even though the power light is on and there's no battery issue because it was on charge all night and the AC adopter is still in.   I keep on having to get to get to the BIOS recovery screen, letting that update, and then it proceeds to restart. However when it restarts, it never gets to start up and there is the same dark screen- no display.  I have to always update BIOS, take out the battery and AC adapter, put them back in, and then it will start. Or sometimes even that whole process might not restart it.  Please help!

"We are sorry to hear that the battery did not work well. No problem for return and you will get a full refund if we receive your return within 60 days of the purchase date.

However, before the return please check the following:
1. Make sure that your power adapter and electric outlet work well
2. Make sure that the connection part between battery and laptop is clean. If not, please clean and try the battery again
3. Many new batteries need several charge to reach the full capacity. If it is a newly received battery please recharge several times to allow the battery to its full capacity.
4. If you recently upgrade your operating system to windows 7, it may cause the battery not charge. Please go online for a solution for your specific laptop model.
5. Please check your laptop manufacturer's website for a BIOS update. Recently a few customers reported that the Bios update solved the problem having with their battery.

Hi acedrake,
Thanks for posting.
Apologies that your computer is not working as expected.
Since you haven't included your computer's model number or operating system, I can only give a general answer to your question.
From what you're describing, it sounds like the battery may have reached it's end of life.  Have you tried it with a different battery?  If that's not the issue, then the charger may be bad, have you tried a known working charger?  If the  charger and battery are good, then the charging circuit on the motherboard may be at fault.  If that's the case, then the motherboard would have to be replaced.

Have you tried a hard start? Disconnect the battery and power cord if plug in. Then hold the power button on the laptop for 30 seconds. The either replace the battery or plug and try and start it. This may work. If so you may want to run a system check on it after if it boots. Other then that maybe someone here will know a little more to help you.

 My laptop has been working fine until recently. Two days ago I was in a hotel room, wor king on my laptop and everything was fine. Then I plugged it in later on and tride to turn it back on and got no response. The only thing that happens, each time I press the power button, is the blue light right next to the power cord input blinks 3x. The battery has been useless on this laptop for years,  and I essentially have to plug it in everywhere I go. I'm fine dealing with that, as this laptop is getting older, but I definitely need to access all of my five holes on there.  I've tried the reset options, by taking the battery out and trying to start that way. The only thing that I see are those blinking lights and nothing else. The screen stays black, no hard drive sounds etc. I'm looking at getting a new AC adapter, but want to make sure that's the right way to go. And I also want to double check the specs so I don't get the wrong adapter (if that's the actual problem).  If I do need a new AC adapter, I'd like some information on wattage. I guess the replacement I got was lower wattage the my original. I think I went from 90 to 65, and I kept getting warnings that things may run slower. I didn't notice too much of a difference, but it might one of those things I got used to and a higher wattage power supply may be a good thing. I look forward to your replies and offer my thanks in advance!  Matt

A:Laptop won't turn on

Take off the keyboard? You mean from the top?

That is a most unusual way to install laptop RAM. Maybe it is an older unit?
Most times today the RAM is installed from the bottom of the laptop, through one of the removable panels, and sometimes behind the hard drive.

If you removed the keyboard the first thing that would cause that is if the ribbon cable was disconnected from the motherboard socket or was not reconnected (seated) fully. I would check that connection carefully first. Be sure the ribbon head snaps completely into the slot.

My laptop won't turn on. The last time I used it was on Tuesday, and it was on charge all Tuesday night, but yesterday evening I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't work. I tried taking out the battery and doing a hard reset where you hold down for fifteen-thirty seconds to try to turn it on but it didn't work. I also tried getting dust out of the vents and shining light at the screen in a dark room but the screen showed no sign of any light. The only thing working at this point is the LED charging light and when I hold down on the power button I hear a little bit of noise (only when I put my ear to the laptop) but no sound from the fan(s). We plan on calling support on Saturday if we can't get it working by then, but is their something else I should try? I've only had this laptop for about six to seven months.

My laptop will not turn on at all. I've tested it with a charger that I know works, and it will not charge or turn on. When this first happened I was able to get it to take a small amount of charge (40% after 10 hours of charging) but after that ran out (very quickly) it won't take charge again or turn on. Since it appears that the only way to get support is through the support app on my laptop I have no idea how to address this. Is there a number I can call for HP support? I'm a few months beyond warranty (of course) and the machine is less than 18 months old. Extremely furstrated that such a new and lightly used laptop would already be dead!

First indication of a problem occurred when I turned on my laptop yesterday. It was stuck on the windows background with no icons on the desktop.  I hit the windows key and it loaded properly.  Worked on the laptop for about 5 hours with no problem.  Shut down last night and when I turned on the laptop this morning the screen showed the HP logo and a round circle of spinning dots.  Then it would reboot and do the same thing over and over again. 
Removed the battery and when the laptop booted up it just showed the HP logo and round circle of spinning dots BUT did not keep rebooting.
 
 
These are the steps I took to try and remedy the problem by following the directions from HP as follows:

Disconnected all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. Disconnected the AC power adapter and removed the battery. Held the power button down for 30 seconds. Reconnected the AC power adapter, but did not connect the battery.  - NO CHANGE IN PROBLEM


Ran the Hardware Diagnostics Start-Up Test and no errors noted - NO CHANGE IN PROBLEM


Removed and reseated memory modules - NOW COMPUTER WILL NOT TURN ON AT ALL


Tried a new power supply - NO CHANGE IN PROBLEM


I HAVE AN HP PAVILION G7 2294NR LAPTOP RUNNING WINDOWS 8.1 - PLEASE HELP

I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 with Service pack 3. Me and my sister both have one. I had to reinstall XP Home Edition on her laptop after it crashed a few weeks ago. After I finally got it up and running the way she wanted it a few week later, she brought it to me freaking out, because it wouldn't turn on! I just laughed it off, and told her I would look at it. Now I have a bigger problem, it seriouslly wont turn on. Then when I tried to turn my laptop on, same modle, it done the same thing! Hers worked fine the day before and then it completely wouldnt even turn on! I checked the batter, its fine. I checked the charger for the wall outlet and it was fine and the green light on the charger is lite, so I know it has power. The computer wont even turn on, or even attempt too! I tried different chargers for them, but nothing happened. Have I lost 2 laptops? I have no idea what to do!?!

Oh dear, you are in a pickle.

Try removing the battery from the laptop and then plugging in the power and turning it on .... and then try starting the computer.
