Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
This Tip is written to help you troubleshoot the common hardware issues that can cause your Laptop not to boot or start properly.
Sometimes a common cause of this non-start problem is found to be very easily resolved through steps I have outlined in a previous Tip.
Please view this first to eliminate this as a potential issue before proceeding with this hardware troubleshoot.
If the issues persist after following those steps then a hardware problem is the main suspect here. Often this will be signified by a series of bleeps which are codes to indicate where the problem lies. This issue is further discussed in the video below.
The main faults associated with apparent non-start are;
- Faulty or improperly seated RAM.
- Power supply issues or problems.
- Faulty or improperly configured monitor.
- Faulty or badly seated Graphics Card.
- Faulty motherboard.
For the purposes of this Tip, I have included a very useful video dealing with issues that are 'consumer friendly' ways to resolve such a problem. Problems beyond this will require specialist intervention and it is advisable to seek specialist technical help if all these steps have failed to resolve the issue.
