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.

My g570 laptop is 4 years old, so probably time for a new one...BUT I'd like to get some more life out of this if I could.  Currently I'm running only on battery power. 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.
Original power supply back into the Dell.

So my hp pavilion that is not even 2 years old yet has bit the dust, back in July I was using my laptop perfectly fine one night and the next morning the computer would not turn on and the caps lock button has been flashing continuously; it does NOT stop. I have talked to tech support but because I'm out of warranty they don't want to talk to me unless I pay 70 bucks. Anyway yesterday I got annoyed and tried turning it on for the first time in 3 months. It turned on and took a few minutes but worked just fine- now it is again doing the caps lock thing again. I do hard resets continuously and it takes an hour to turn on, I have been told to just buy a new laptop. What is the issue? When it turns on it works just fine

I have a 3-4 year old Compaq Presario SR2017CL desktop and recently (maybe a month or so ago) the power-on button (green) began flashing when the computer goes into hibernation. I saw this a year or so ago and there was usually an update to Adobe, Microsoft, iTunes, etc. that needed installing. I've checked all those and can't find anything to explain the infernal blinking! I even downloaded an update to the BIOS and that didn't do any good, either. Can you think of any reason for the light to blink? It's actually the lighted power on button and not an indicator inside the box. Other recent changes I've made to the system: removed Norton Antivirus using the registry since there was no uninstall for the program (also a puzzle to me????) and uninstalled my Kodak printer for reasons I won't go into right now. Would appreciate and help you can give.

My X1 carbon (Generation 2) power button flashing continuously.  The current battery even though it says 100% it drains in 40 minutes, then keep getting battery is very low (even though AC power cable is plugged in).  I have to shut down and leave the AC power cable plugged in to charge the battery again.  It takes a couple of hours to charge 100% and if I start using it drains in 40 minutes (only browsing lightly).  So, I bought a new battery, replaced it, when I turn on the power, it says the battery is critically low and immediately shut down.  I left an AC power cable plugged in to charge the new battery for 10~12 hours, still unable to boot with a new battery, but able to use with old battery for 40 minutes per every 100% charge with power button keep flashing.  Any help/suggestion?

Hello - I have about 50 Lenovo P series Laptops running in our comapny and within the last month, 2 - P51S same make and model has had power up issues.Users reported that they "control +alt+ Del" to lock out their laptops and when then returned the laptop was DOA. The signs are that the power power light is flashing every second ( Indicates in sleep mode)- FAn attempts to start but does not.I have tried plugging in different AC power adapter, disconnecting both external and internal batteries. No change. I have openned laptop and disconnected SSD, Wireless card, ROM battery, fan, speakers etc testing and no difference. I have tried to discharge by removing all power and and tapping power button 10 times and hold in for 30 seconds. No change.  I find it strange that 2 identical laptops would suffer the same issue at the same time?? Looking on internet - this looks like hugh problem that maybe linked to the motherboard issues on this make and model.I have called Lenovo and since out of warranty - sorry.So please help if anyone has any other ideas to try. Thank you in advance

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

I found the solution on another thread. If you have this problem try the following:
1. Log in as an administrator.
2. Right click the Menu button.
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)
5. Make sure Hibernate is unchecked.
6. Left click Save changes.
The next time you shut down the computer, it will be completely powered off. At least this worked on my machine.

Hello Dear Lenovo community!  I have an issue that maybe anyone can help me with. I have Lenovo B50-30 Serial:CB34504693. It's about 4th year of usage and perfect so far, but approximately these 2 months I noticed power button starts flashing all of a sudden. Upon flashing battery stop charging. I was unpluging and pluging back again and it worked normal. Unfortunately during these two month this occured more and more often and it needed to do plug operations after every hour, after every half hours, after every 15 minutes and now it's dead. As soon as I plug charger power button immadiately starts flashing. I thought it was battery first, but laptop turned off after couple of mniutes working on charger without battery.  I noticef this was occuring during gaming on laptop. Generaly DOTA 2. CPU temperature maximum heat was 82 and video card 74-76. I tried different chargers result is the same. I tried different battery result is the same. I tried power shut down, like removing battery and pushing power button for 60 seconds, but no possitive result.Here's the vide on my google drive of laptop and how it behaves. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1308AVwDsP9pt4hxM0zVOny68e_H5UYPW/view?fbclid=IwAR2GseZw5-cZjC291CZI... Please share with your opinion hoqw can I fix this.  Thanks in advance.

I have searched for the same issue and found a few similar for this model but they were dated back in 2012 and nothing more recent. The machine is significantly out of warranty having been purchased in 2012 and would appreciate any advice as to how I can boot this machine up. HAve never built or opened up a PC before so if that is needed, please can you give some simple guidance,

I just received my replacment AC adaptor. I put my battery back in and plugged the laptop in, but when i push the power button the battery indicator light flashes red four times. There are no lights on. Does this mean my battery is fried. Originally i thought the jack needed replaced, but the guy told me it was just my cord which Best Buy confirmed. So after getting the new cord i have this new problem. Usally there is a battery indicator light on when the battery is in and it is plugged in. I tryed taking out the battery, unplugging it and holding the power button down, but that didnt work. I also tryed it without the battery in. Is my battery just bad? Thanks for any help.

Thank you,

I first logged out of my computer and came back and I noticed an orange light on the power button. I shut it of and turn it back on about two times with the same results of an orange light. I then shut of the the extension that houses 10 plugs. When I turned on the extension I turned on the computer the power button didn't give off a blue light or orange light. The VGA cable, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet cable are all plugged in. I later removed all the connects to the computer gave it a minute and plugged it all back in. There is a solid green light on the back under the power cable. The fans turn on there is noise coming from inside the computer a soft humming and light fan from the back of the computer. But the power button will not turn on. The monitor light is orange and says "No Input signal Input 2,Go to Power Save." When I switch to input 1 it reads "Cable Disconnected Go to Power Save." What internal issue could this be?

My sister-in-law has an eMachine that she turned off and unplugged before leaving for vacation. A week later she returned and plugged it back in only to find it won't turn on. I don't know much about this pc other than it's a tower and about 3 or so years old. I figured it was probably the PSU (power supply) but wanted to verify as many things as possible. Basically, there is a green light on the back of the pc (on the PSU) that will flashes on and off when you try to turn on the computer. The PSU fan doesn't spin and nothing else makes any attempt to turn...just dead.

I pulled all the power connectors and jumpered the power switch pins (15-16), this gave me a solid green light on the PSU and the fan spun normally. I tested with a voltmeter and got the proper voltage on all the pins. I am thinking that this probably rules out the PSU but not 100% as something could be 'pulling it down'???

Any ideas on what else to look at? I hate to buy a PSU when it appears this one is ok. That pretty much leaves the MoBo and/or CPU. I've pulled all the cards and memory trying to get it to do anything and nothing affects it. I suspect there is something wrong with the MoBo but don't know how to verify that.

Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Problem description:
I built my computer in January 2008. When it is turned on, there is a blue light on the front panel next to the power button that burns steadily (Case is from Cooler Master).

Most nights I turn my computer off when I go to bed. Sometimes though I don't and leave it running all night. The longest I've ever had it on non-stop is probably about 72 hours. After about 30 minutes my monitor goes on standby and switches off. It wakes up and returns to desktop when I press a button or move the mouse.

Last night I kept it on. It had been off the previous night so it was probably now running for about 20 hours. When I returned to it this morning I moved the mouse and pressed some buttons and nothing happened.

I tried turning the monitor on and off but it remained on standby.
So I decided to restart the computer. I pressed the restart button on the front panel but nothing happened. I held down the main power button for 20 seconds and nothing happened. At this point I noticed that the blue light was flashing instead of steadily burning.
The only way I could turn it off was by turning off the psu power button at the back.

I can not get the POST screen to appear. In summary, I can not get my computer to boot up when I turn it on. I can only turn it off by disconnecting the power.

When I press the power button, the blue light flashes; and the numlock, capslock and third light on my keyboard flash as well. The monitor does not turn on and there are no beep... Read more

Hey guys! Newcomer here!

Need serious help with my 4 months old PC which I built myself.

It has been working fine, until recently. Basically, the PC would not turn on after clicking the Power button on the Case. Initially, it required 4-5 clicks, before it turned on. After couple of days, more clicks. Then now, it just does not turn on with Button clicks.

In order to Boot it, I have to Turn Off and On the PSU switch, couple of times, and it triggers something and PC comes on. When it is on, it is all stable, no issues at all. I can use it 12-15 hours, and not a single crash or power surge.

I read on many other forums regarding the issue and tried couple of solutions:

1. Tried switching the connections on the motherboard, between Power and Reset button, to see if the SWITCH is the problem. No result, so switch of the case is fine.

2. Tried removing the motherboard battery and back in, didn't help.

3. Unplugged custom lighting LED molex connector, still no result.
PC Components are:

i7 6700 (non-K) 3.4Ghz
64GB 2400mhz HyperX Fury Black
MSI z170A Gaming M5 motherboard
MSI GTX970 4Gb
Samsung Evo 500Gb SSD
Seagate 4TB green
NZXT H440 Red and Black case

Hi, I came home today and when I pressed the power button to turn on my latop, nothing happened. I pressed it multiple times, with and without some force, as well as held the button down. It still didn't turn on. I tried it with the battery in and without the battery but plugged into the charger and outlet, but nothing happened. I'm not sure if it's that the battery drained and the charger died and that my laptop has no power. Right now my laptop is plugged into the outlet with the battery in and the light next to the power insert on the laptop is unlit. Something of note that happened yesterday was that my laptop randomly shutdown and restarted a few times actually. I wasn't sure what happened, but it was fine afterwards and it said the laptop was charged. I'm thinking these two issues are related, but I don't know what happened. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Dell doesn't provide info on the pin connections between the motherboard and front panel. So that makes it difficult to use a non-Dell case.

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.

There are many of these posts about the laptop not turning on, and I've followed guidance in quite a few relating to Hybrid sleep -- no luck. Here's the situation: Since I received the laptop in October 2019, until December 2019: Infrequently, when trying to wake the computer from Sleep, it would not respond. Power button LED would keep glowing/fading as it does in sleep. No response from the machine. To fix, I held power down until it turned off, then turned back on. In December 2019: The above was occuring more regularly, rapidly leading to 31 December 31 December:Now, when I got to the turn-on point, the keyboard lights up, and the power button LED was solid, but no light to the screen; no LENOVO boot splash screen. Fans whir lightly after a minute. This is all while plugged in, i.e. power connection LED is on. Same if I unplug it.To start my computer now, I must use the NOVO button, in which case it works first time. The Power button obviously "works", but the machine doesn't do anything. Any thoughts? I have a warranty repair person due to come by the end of this week or else Monday; but I'm keen to have a better idea of what this is before then.

A:Yoga C940 - Won't Turn On w/ Power Button

Hi @mike_302,
Welcome to the Community.
We have a couple of steps for you to try.
First, do a power drain. Remove all peripheral devices connected to the laptop then press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds.
Once done, update the Windows and drivers (Display driver and BIOS) using the Lenovo Vantage. You may download and learn more about the Lenovo Vantage here. 
We also suggest turning off the fast start up. 
Hope it helps.

Hey. I recently bought a new tower and was moving my motherboard and all the other things to the new one. I installed everything and connected all the cables. However when I press the power button it doesn't start. I know the motherboard is getting power because the light is on and when i plugged in ethernet cable it lit up too but I can't get the power button to work. I thot I mite have connected the cables from the buttons the wrong way o the Chassis 9-pin Front Panel Header so I wnt online and go diagrams and I know it's properly now but it still doesnt work.

Doesn any1 know what might be the problem?

A:Pressing power button but PC doesn't turn on :(

K wow. I was reading on the board about a guy who had the same problem. He bought a new tower and did everything as me and had same problem. As I was reading it almost near the end the guy found out what the problem was and it was bad. He said the motherboard was touching the metal inside the tower and that that way u can fry ur motherboard in secs and that's what happened to him along wid few other things connected to it. When I read that I almost got a heart attack and felt like shyt since my PC is worth some big bucks and I just bought it 6 months ago. So widout any hope left miserably feeling I unscrewed the motherboard and I have used the plastic dunno what to call it (screws) to hold up my motherboard in the air. And for the last time I decided to press the button knowing it won't work. And guess what everything turned on and I almost shyt myself instantly from the shock and happiness and almost wanted to cry. I don't know what saved me, why my motherboard didn't fry but I know I am lucky as hell like never befo. I turned on my system and eveertyhing seems to work well other than the fact that norton antivirus cant load up it's driver and my date was resetted to default but that's it for now.
