My laptop does not start

Hello, my problem is that i am pressing the start button and my laptop does not start. When i am pressing the button, the battery indicator flashes for about 8 times, but the laptop does not respond. I also tried to plug-in the AC adaptor, but the battery indicator remains off, and the laptop does not start as well. Any ideas which might be the problem..?

Re: My laptop does not start

Have you tried removing the battery and trying the laptop directly off the mains, another thing thats worth trying is remove 1 of the memory modules if you have 2 and put 1 in at a time.

Hello,my laptop didn't get started it is charging

How do you know it is charging? What does it do when you hit the power button?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe 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.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

I press the switch on button to activate laptop and it just switches back off

Please check whether the laptop power button may be in the pressed mode.. please release the key. If the key is not released after you pressed the power button, the laptop will power off.
Clean the power on button.
Hope this works..

My laptop was working fine, I went to bios settings by pressing F10. I selected one of the items in security settings and pressed enter, now there is no display. If i press power button the led blinks...


On startup can you not go back and reverse what you have done in bios to see if that corrects the problem

so press power button and straight away press F10 or delete a few times as it is starting up and hopefully put the setting back in bios save it which i think is F10 and exit or restart

good luck

How to go in safe mode?


to go into safe mode, turn on your computer and constantly press F8 immediately. You will press the F8 button at the first black screen, that is, when your computer displays its log.

While pressing the F8, a windows option will be the next screen to appear, amongst the windows option, you will see safe mode there, use your keyboard arrow key to scroll to safe mode and press enter.

By now,your computer should be loading on safe mode.

Good luck.

How to turn on wireless capability on a compaq cq60


the wireless button is usually at the side of the power button.

If you don't find it there, check the side(s) of the laptop.

Or you can click your computer start menu, under search, type wireless and press enter. You can enable your wireless from there.

Take care.

Keyboard start up mode wrong


When you mean numeric mode, you press letters and numbers comes out?

If yes just look for the "FN" button it should be near the window, ctrl, alt and space button. if not it will be a combination button.

just press it when inside windows and it should go back to normal.

Thank You for using Fixya!
