Question about HP OmniBook 500 Notebook

3 Answers

Doesn't start Hi have an HO Omnibook 500, which doesn't start. I press the power button and in a few seconds the screen turns completely white. I took it to BestBuy and they said it could be the "power converter," whatever that is. They said the part is very expensive though. I think it was a virus i may have downloaded, since it used to work fine up until i stared visiting these spammy sites. I don't want to throw it away, since it's great for typing (only ways 3 lbs). Help!!

As soon as you press power button, does it only the white screen shows? or before white screen, there it shows another screen with HP logo (logo screen generally comes from BIOS before even loading OS, which cant be corrupted by virus). If that screen is also not showing then probably the prob with either motherboard or LCD screen.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

My phone vibrated and when I looked at it the screen was white i tried turning it off and taking out the battery but the screen is still white.


Try taking the battery out and pressing the power button for 30 seconds to completely discharge it, then put everything back together and try to turn it on. If that doesn't work, there's not much else that you could do unless you have warranty, or get a new phone.

Remotes will not sync with console


Hi there, this information comes straight from Nintendo's website. Anything I'd be typing would basically be repeating what comes from Nintendo directly:
Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.
Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.
After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.
Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).
When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

Westinghouse - 60" Class / 1080p / 120Hz / LCD


There is a method called a Power Scan this method allows you to search for all possible codes. Try this until you reach a code that carries all of the functions desired. If the TV mode button starts flashing rapidly during this process you have exhausted all possible codes.
Power Scan
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).

Dear Sir I just bought a verbatim 500 GB external


When you press the button it takes a few seconds for the indicator light to come on because the drive is initializing on startup, in other words its starting to spin up which could take a few seconds. Press the button one time and wait 30 seconds to see if its just the delay for the Hard drive to come to speed. And the same for the shutdown it may take a few seconds for it to park the drive and shutdown.
If this helped give a thumbs up.
"Patience is a virtue" I read that somewhere.

Trying doing a hard reset on your iPhone:

1. Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
2. Hold both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, Ignore the "Slide to power off" and keep holding
3. The iPhone should now shutdown automatically - (fade to black)
4. Turn the iPhone back on by hitting the sleep/wake button.
5. You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.
6. You have completed a hard reset successfully.

Where is the resest button for my omnibook xe3 laptop


Hi,

Their is no reset button for this laptop. Pushing the power button and holding it down for a few seconds will force a shutdown if that is what you are looking for. Laptops aren't like PDA's where you stick a nail in a little hole and it reboots the system.
