Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook

1 Answer

My laptop won't turn on

My computer hybernated and I left it for a bit until i put the charger in as I was busy, before i even put the charger in the power button was flashing and the battery bit at the front was flashing as well as the half moon.
sometimes all the lights at the front flash orange, but i can't turn it on and they're constantly flashing green. I've tried plugging it in, holding my finger down on the power button for 6 seconds but nothing happens.

Can you remove the battery? If so pop it out and leave it out for a couple of minutes then pop it back in and see what happens.

My dell says hybernating while on and hang


Hybernation is a power saving feature in microsoft windows. Often times this will cause the computer to freeze.

One solution is to disable hybernation in the power settings located inside the control panel.

On windows vista / 7 you can do this by clicking on the start button (lower left hand corner of the screen)
Then going to "Control Panel"
At the top right of the screen should be a search box, simply type "Power" Into this box and options to edit / change the power plan should appear. Choose edit power plan,
Make sure any options pertaining to hybernation are disabled, You can also adjust when the screen and hard drive shut off during inactivity. For desktops it is recommended to set all options to "Never"

Once finished click the "Save Settings" Button. and you are all set.
You can adjust these settings as much as needed, they can always be undone.

On windows 8 you can access the control panel by moving the mouse to the upper right hand corner of the screen and choosing "Settings" or "Computer Settings" the same procedures apply after this step.

Unplug the computer, hold the power button down until the laptop shuts down, then remove the battery. Plug in the charger, and try powering up. If all is okay, shut it back down, unplug it, and reinstall the battery. Then, plug it in and let it fully charge. Restart it, plugged in and with the battery installed. Good luck.

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!


If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

I bought a new charger for my laptop as my charger broke, and the little blue light comes on but the laptop won't turn on. I have the right charger, but it still won't turn on. The power light...


The first thing to do is check that the charger is putting out the correct voltage, which should be ~18 volt. Then try to start it without the battery.
If your voltage is OK and the battery out makes no difference, then I would suspect that you have a motherboard problem that must be fixed. If the computer starts up if you wiggle the DC plug where it goes into the computer, then it's the DC jack that is looks and must be re-soldered.

My emachine isn't starting up after hybernation, unless i press the power button and reboot. Why is this?


Hi there,
When your system goes to hybernation it creates a file on the root drive called hyberfil.sys in most instances this file gets corrupted and is causing the computer not to wake up from hybernation.
You would have to try and delete this file so that it will re enable the normal hybernation wake of your computer, here's how to do it:
http://helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7/windows-7-delete-hibernation-file-hiberfil-sys/
Just have to reverse the process to re-enable hybernation.
My recommendation would be to just disable Hybernation and just let the computer go to sleep if you're going to leave it idle.
Hope this helps!

My Dell Inspiron 1525 is stuck in "hybernation." It will not let me "control, alt, delete" and I've even tried removing and reinstalling the battery. Help! Thank you!


Press and hold down the power button until the computer shuts off. Then wait at least ten seconds and power it back on.
While it is booting up and you see the Dell logo on the screen, press and hold the F8 button. When the next screen appears, you will see a list of options for how you would like to continue the boot up process. Highlight the option titled "last known good configuration" and press enter. Your computer will restart and load up with all of the settings previously used before it began giving you problems.
