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!

A:New Lenovo X230 Laptop! Help trim default windows install down please.

See here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Definitely the best way to go to get rid of all the bloatware OEMs install.

I had updated the Windows 10 April Update on my Thinkpad X230. I use Bitlocker to encrypt C, D disks. Before update Windows, I suspended Bitlocker function on C, update all newest drivers downloaded from Lenovo for Thinkpad X230 (BIOS, Firmware, ...). After update Windows 10, I can use my laptop in some hours, then I shutdown it. However, from this time, I cannot boot Windows, it only boot on some seconds and automatically turn off. I use USB Windows to go to boot my laptop, then turn off Bitlocker in C drive, and I can boot and use my Thinkpad. Unfortunately, when I turn on Bitlocker again, my Thinkpad X230 cannot boot again. Any idea for me? Please don't tell me turn off Bitlocker.

Hello everyone, I have an HP Envy j100t which I purchased in 2014. ever since yesterday it's been starting but the screen remains pitch black, no display at all. 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!

I have just received a replacement battery for my Toshiba Satellite L770 laptop which I purchased from a preferred seller on Ebay. When I put it in the laptop to charge and use the computer while it's charging, the computer will not even turn on. I contacted the seller and this is what he replied:

"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.

If none of these steps works, please return the whole package to the following address by USPS Priority or UPS ground. And please include the order receipt or shipping slip in the return package. We suggest that you use a delivery confirmation to track ... Read more

Hey everyone Happy easter!

My windows vista laptop wont stay turned on, When I turn it on it stays on for about a minute then switches off. It is plugged in and the lights come on to show its trying to charge or something. But it keeps switching off. Also when it did work the cd drive didnt pick up any cds or dvds. The warrenty has expired, Ive sent it away twice when it had warrenty because the same thing happened and they replaced the battery about a year and half ago. The time before that they had to reboot it so I lost everything. I want to buy a E drive but they are expensive. Also I asked them to fix the sound which decides to stop working if I didn't play something as soon as I logged in, and continued playing it. But now it just won't even stay turned on. I tried safe mode but it still switched off before I could type my log in password. It had a option for start up repair (because it hadn't shut down properly) so I tried that and half way through the process same thing. Do I need a new battery? I'm going to take everything off the laptop when it turns on and buy a new one because Vista is annoying me. Please help

Last night while I was using my laptop it suddenly shut down without any error or message. It wasn't overheating as it was on only for about 15 minutes. I couldn't turn it back on afterwards. The charging light in on like everything is normal. Battery was full and laptop was plugged in. When I try to turn it on with pressing the power on button, the button itself blinks for about half a second, maybe even less, the fan starts running for about the same time, the light that indicates that laptop is plugged in, the one I mentioned earlier, shuts down and that's it, nothing happens. I tried the hard reset but it didn't help. What could be the problem? Laptop is about 4 years old.

Thanks for writing to us. 
Have you done any hardware or software changes lately?
Is the machine overheating ? Does the system shut down even if its left idle? 
Please run daignostics from f12 menu and let us know the outcome. 
Meanwhile you can try the following steps if you  are comfortable. 
Shut down the system disconnect the battery and charger. Remove the memory modules, put back only one memory and work for few hours and observe how it goes. try the same with other memory as well.

Hello! I've had my laptop since Februrary, and it's been my best friend ever since. It's an HP Pavilion 15 - 272wm with a product code of N5Y05UA#ABA.   About 2 weeks ago, I went to bed, shut my computer off, and fell asleep. Well, it turns out my cat peed on my laptop in my sleep. The next morning, I went and saw the mess. I took it straight to my dad, who works with computers, and he cleaned it out and got it nice (even if it smelled a little like pee) again. When he gave it back to me, it was in fine condition and worked like a charm. I could use every function, and it seemed like there wasn't any harm to it. That night, I closed it like ususal, put it in a very high place I knew my cat couldn't reach, and went to bed. Boy, was I wrong. The next day I didn't get a chance to use my laptop until later after work. I opened it up, only to find I couldn't turn it on at all! I plugged in my charger, and saw it light up, but no matter what other button or function I tried to press, it wouldn't turn on. I took out the battery, held the button, concluded that it was useless, and brought it once again to my dad.  He reasoned that maybe the cat pee had affected my power button, and we ordered a new one no problem. He put it in, got it to turn on, and once again my laptop ran like a dream. I was able to use all the functions and my battery was at full charged when (enevitably) I closed the laptop for the night.  Thus the present, ... Read more

Hi i am having a weird problem, my computer just won't turn on

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1550 (i know thats probly the problem)

last night i was playing video games on my computer for probly too long when everything froze up, nothing would work to get it to turn off so i hit the button and turned it off
i went to turn it back on, it got to windows and froze again
i turned it off and back on again and this time it just went to the very first screen you see when i turn it on and frooze there,
since then it wont even get to that point

when i turn it on, the green power light comes on, and i can hear the computer start to work but nothing happens, the screen just stays black

i talked to dell tech support, and they had me do a few things, we found out its not thebattery or power source
and also while turning it on they had me push the FN key which made the caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights flash

they said that the problem is my motherboard and are going to have a local tech guy fix it,

im just wondering if that is the case or not, cause ive had a problem that they couldnt help me with in the past

THanks for the help im looking forward to a response

Hi friends...
It's when I was upgrading my Office 2007 to Office 2010 that my laptop shut down and now it can not show any power sign.This is how it happened.
I was having the setup on my External Hard drive.And when I saw it was taking long to finish the upgrade, I forgot that I was using the External and removed it from the PC.
That sudden it shut down and until now it can't get turned on.
What will I do?
Looking forward to your help

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.

Not sure if this is the right board, but...

I have a Compaq v5310us laptop, and the fan turns on and off very often. Like every 30 seconds to a minute or so, stays on for about 20-30 seconds, then turns off. I was told that the fan can run often because stuff is so close together inside, but this seems like a lot. Is this normal?

Thanks!

A:Can't get laptop to turn on

Try removing the battery and plugging in the AC adapter and see if it will power on.
I have seen this same issue in the past with some Dell laptops. Hope that helps!

Left laptop to charge overnight as was low battery. Would not turn on next morning- power button flashed couple of times. Has been dead since- no lights, no fans turning on & not registering that a charger is plugged in (no charge light). I bought a new charger and still nothing. Any tricks re-boot it? Or perhaps could the battery be no good? I have tried removing battery to power on etc and nothing. Any tips much appreciated!

Hello Tech Guy,
I have a Gateway NX860XL with Windows XP sp3 Intel T7200, dedicated nvidia 7900gs, 2gb ram.
I turned my laptop off last night. In the morning it does not turn on. It sits in a oem gateway docking station 8009061 for most of the two years. When it would not turn on (no lights nothing) I removed it from the docking station and plugged it directly into the power supply still nothing I removed the battery and it shows full charge. I plugged the power supply into the laptop with out the battery and still nothing. My neighbor has the same model as mine so I checked my battery and power supply with his and vice versa and so it is not the power supply, battery, memory or docking station.
Could it be the bios battery? What are the remaining issues that would cause a complete non response? Power button, cpu, motherboard? How can I test these components or isolate the problem.

I took out the battery, and after I put it back in I tried turning it on and it wouldn't start. I tried the hard reset in which you hold the power button for 30 seconds to a minute after taking out the battery and the charger, but it didn't work. When I connect the charger, the light that indicates it's charging turns on. And when I press the power button it makes a barely noticeable noise. Other than that the laptop does no respond.

Hey @Left4deadrising, Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand from your posts that you are having an issue with your HP Notebook not starting correctly. Here is a link to computer won't start for Windows.Plug the power adapter directly into a different wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.Have you tried reseating Memory and the HDD? Click the Thumbs up to give me a Kudos high five, just to say thanks for trying. Thanks.

Hi,

I have an Acer Aspire 5741z laptop which is refusing to turn on. There are no lights flashing, no beeping codes, and no fans spinning. It's not responding at all.

The AC Adapter seems to be OK as the green LED is lit and I'm assuming the Battery is OK as well since I've never had any problems with it.

When I took the laptop apart to see what's wrong with it, I found that the Power Jack was loose and it had a broken wire.

I have replaced the Power Jack with another one but it's not made any difference.

Please can somebody help me with this, any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

If you have a multimeter check the AC adapter's output voltage. It may be a little higher than the spec but that's ok. Now connect it to the laptop and check the voltage at the motherboard end of the lead from the AC plug, it should be close to the spec. and probably a little lower than the first reading.
