Blank screen, led lights on, intermittent beeps

Please help. I think my laptop has finally died. When I turn it on the button lights up blue, the green LED's light up, but don't flash, and it loudly beeps intermittently. The screen never turns on, only stays black or blank. Also, my wireless switch doesn't light up when turned on either. Any advise for me? It has crashed pretty seriously in the past, but never acted this way.

    No, I didn't. But I am not worried about what is on it. Since the last major crash we only save our work on memory sticks. Lucky for us. But it was still very useful fo searching the web and typing things up.

    All morning I had been taking the battery out and putting it back in. NO luck. Now as I am typing, my husband does the same thing and all of a sudden it works! Of all the rotten luck. Or I guess, good, right.

    So here are the beeps it gave me, maybe it will help to indicate what the fault was in the first place

    * *** * *** This star patter represents the pattern of the beeps. Could you tell me where the RAM is generally located on a laptop please? Thank you all for your comments and advice. AND SO FAST!!

    Great, thank you. I will check it out. Do you have any idea what would make it fault out like that and work all of a sudden?? It is so strange.

  • longmariah Oct 22, 2008

    It was working, until we turned it off and now it won't turn on again. Having the same problems listed above. How wierd.

Sounds to me like the battery may be at the end of it's useful life..usually around 2 to 3 years..

My toshiba at200 table 10.1 wont turn on

1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, like the toshiba boot up screen or something like that. Or is it completely blank (black color) always.

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). This is important to confirm.

3. Also, when you press power button, do you see the LED lights on laptop blinking or solid green (which ones are in blinking/solid) and do hear any sound ? Or do you feel that your laptop doesnt even try to boot.

4. Can you hear any Beeps when you try to turn on the computer. If yes, what is the sequence of those beeps.

If you answers are -
no image
only the satellite light is blue, the powercord is blue and the battery is blue
no noise

Please do the following carefully and let me know result :
1. Shutdown and Unplug your laptop.
2. Remove the battery from the laptop.
3. Wait 2-3 minutes
4. Now press ON (power button on laptop) for 1 minute
5. Then release the finger and wait one more minute.
6. Now plug in the power cable (dont insert battery yet) and press ON button.
7. Did your screen start working now ? (do you see windows loading)

My Viper remote won't turn on or charge.

The battery is probably dead. There is a guy on ebay that is replacing them. He fixed mine and it works great. The batteries dont last forever and you cannot just buy them they are a special type, also viper suggests you buy a new remote for $299 because they do not replace the batteries... how convenient. Hopefully that helps.

BLANK SCREEN ON MY hp compaq nx9420. my laptop was working fine and then when restarted I got a blank screen. The power LED and cahrging LED both light up but screen remains blank. have changed the video...

Did it display any video at all with boot options or HP logo? Any POST test or beeps after you started the laptop?
Try removing the power ac adapter and battery. then only boot it up with just the AC adapter (no battery).
Good Luck, JAJ

It died

The same thing happened to me and i had no idea what to do. I tried e-mailing the creative headquarters but they wouldnt give me any advice. Finally i realized that there is a reset button on the botom of the player that i never noticed before. If you hold in the play/pause button, hit the reset button, and then release then play/pause button it should take you to a screen where it gives you options on what to do with your player. What i did was reboot it and nothing happened. Whatever you do, DO NOT hit format, or else you will lose all of your picture and music files. I got really frustrated with this problem so glad i could help out.
