Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Offhand, a couple of ideas, queries and suggestions:

  • remove the battery and try booting the laptop on AC adapter power only;
  • remove bottom panel cover for memory. remove memory, using a pencil eraser, clean the little gold pins. using a dry clean toothbrush, clean the slots where the memory sits in. re-install memory, try again;
  • use a can of compress air, blow on the air vents to clean out dust and debris;
  • try booting again. after sufficient time, pls check if pressing on the NumLock and.or Caps Lock would make the LEDs light ON/OFF even if there is no display.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Whatever happened, the engine computer sensed it and turned on the light. You will have to have the computer scanned for the trouble codes- a tech or mechanic could then follow the codes to find the problem.

Sony vaio VGN-A17GP not booting- 1 green light 2 amber are shown


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Fan just work for seconds


Replace the fan or your computer will run hot and keep turning off.

Or are you saying this is what happens when you power on the computer? if so: When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Cap lock and num lock lights flash twice and will not boot up


Hi!
Do you hear beeping sounds along with the 2 flashes of capslock and numlock lights? For the meantime, I suggest we reseat all RAMs(Memory) in that computer/laptop. If you have multiple RAMs installed, please remove all of them then put one back first and turn the computer/laptop ON. If it boots up, put the rest of the RAMs. Please keep me posted. Thanks for reading my suggestion.

MY daughters PHILIPS X57 WILL NOT BOOT UP. IT SWITCHES ON, THE FAN WORKS FOR ABOUT 2 SECONDS, THE HARD DISK LIGHT AND WIFI LIGHT LIGHT-UP FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN NOTHING. NO DISPLAY, AND DOESN'T BOOT UP. ...


Its sounds like you have a faulty battery, take the battery out and take it to your local pc store and ask them if they will test it for you, if they find it is faulty you will have to buy a new one. Check that the power cable is working as well it might be that its not charging the battery so it might be worth taking that to the shop too for them to test. hope this helps and post back to let me how it goes.cheers.

The cd may be bad, or if the power supply is just marginal, it may be failing when the cd motor spins up.
