Packard Bell Easynote L4 turns off after Bios

Hiya, my L4 turns off just after the BIOS screen (can sometimes just glimpse the OS boot menu) with a beep, usually the power LED stays on but the machine is dead. It does this on every switch on. I can enter the BIOS and it runs in there perfectly. I have swapped the memory, removed the HDD and tried to boot from CD, but it just does the same thing. The Battery refresh screen says I have 99% charge, but I know the laptop battery is almost dead as I used to have problems charging the battery, it goes flat quiet quickly! I checked the CMOS battery, seems ok. One thing I find strange is that I have tried before to run the machine without a Battery and it refuses to switch on, not sure if that should happen.

Anyway some help would be appreciated.

I would try a BIOS update first. Go to the manufacturer website and find the BIOS update for your model. Also, you mentioned replacing the memory. Are you positive it is the correct memory? Were you having the problem before you replaced the memory? If you have the wrong memory in a computer it will give a "beep code" and won't boot up.

Safemode for easynote


Some computers have a specific moment durring power up/boot the f8 key has to be pressed, if not at that specific time the computer will ignore the command and continue booting as if a comand was never issued.....Try pressing F8 repeatedly from the very second you turn the laptop on eventually you should hear a beep every time you press the key. Continue pushing it and it should pop up the boot menu. Also for some strange reason (although its rare) F-10 is used depending on the bios manufacturer, I doubt your laptop uses the f10 key and am fairly certian its a timing issue with the command

Easynote will not go past packard bell screen


You may need BIOS update. Check your CMOS time at bios page.
If time is wrong, set it up and try again. If this is solved the problem, change the CMOS battery.

Packard Bell Easynote M5255 - Will not boot up


option f2, go into bios setup and see if the hard drive is listed or detected. Auto detect hard drive save and exit. System will reboot if the same error occurs then the hard drive master boot record is probably corrupt or the hard drive has totally failed.
