In the control panel, find the power management settings; it is probably set to Shutdown after 5 minutes, on battery. Change that setting to never. Actually, you can set them all to never.

I just recently bought an Acer Aspire One and the fan began buzzing loudly and a few weeks later the screen completely shut off. Now when I start up my laptop I cant see anything and the fan buzzes. What...


It is possible that the CPU has overheated. You  should replace the buzzing fan and reseat the CPU. If that doesn't work my guess is that the CPU will have to be replaced.

My toshiba satellite p200-140 laptop will not start up. the power button lights up but nothing else happens. it was working fine last night


My laptop had a similar problem. I left my laptop running and some time later when I went back to my laptop, it would not startup. The power light seemed to be on but the laptop would not function. I tried several things like pressing on the power key for some time without any success and also tried all sorts of alternate buttons and sequences.

I resolved the problem by first disconnecting the power cord then by removing the battery for 5 minutes. I then re-installed the battery then connected the power adapter.

As soon as I turned the power button 'ON', the laptop booted up again.

Hope this works out for you.

Regards,
Rick

Plug the SD card in, right click My Computer and select Manage from the list, in the box that opens select Disk Management.
You will now see all the drives attached to your computer, if the card is functioning but but recognised it will show up as a drive but it will say something like RAW or DYNAMIC right click it and change it to LIVE.
If the card doesn't show up try it in another machine before vwriting it off.
