    Thanks Dark-Viper.

    It is being collected for repair under cover-plan but I hoped it might just be a 'hibernate mode' kind of problem. This happened about a year ago and it was sorted over the phone with some function-key hitting voodoo, then changing power save settings to prevent re-occurrance.

    Cheers.

    Same problem; Computer is on but no backlight? Sometimes works when CD drive is left open when turned off.



    Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?



    Regards

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51


The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.

Philips Freevents X56 laptop won't switch on!


Could be anyone of a number of things related to internal batteries. Let it charge for a while (does the charging light come on on the laptop? - isn't clear if the green light is on the powersupply or the laptop itself) and trying again.

Need to do system recovery on philips freevent x53 problem damaged recovery disk


best not to use a recovery disc as they will erase alot of info, see if you can find a windows disc and use your code off your sticker, when you insert the disc, it will ask if you want to go to recovery mode, say no, go to fresh install and when it says you already have windows ask it to fix the current install, 90% of the time this works
