When i cut my lap top computer on my screen will not appear. only a short white line in the upper left hand corner.


this means something has halted the boot up process.
Make sure there is no CD in the drive, no floppy disk (if it has one) in the drive etc.etc.
If all that looks good, the laptop may also be trying to resume from a faulted state...
remove the power supply and battery for about an hour, then reinsert the battery, plug the unit in, and try again.
If you still only get a blinking cursor, then the operating system on the hard disk is corrupt.
You may at that point need to reinstall or repair the operating system.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 PC notebook will not load to the WIndows screen. Once booted it just sits on a black screen with a moveable cursor. What can I do to stop this? thanks


Hi pebrouss,

Have you tried power drain? The easiest way to resolve this type of issue is by performing a power drain. Here's how you will do it.

1. First, turn off the unit completely. You may try pressing the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

2. Remove the unit from the power outlet.

3. Take out the battery from the system.

4. Press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

5. Put back the battery and plug the unit to the power outlet.

6. Turn on the system and observe it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My ibm thinkpad G40 wont turn on


Check the power source, plug it into the wall don't try to just run off the battery. If it still does not turn on plugged into a working outlet the power supply needs to be replaced.

IBM thinkpad does not power up. Nephew watching


Could be the power button shorted, Does it operate when not plugged in?

The plug jack on the back where the pc would be plugged in, sometimes loosens and needs to be resoldered too. If the pc works when not plugged in, but does work on just the battery.

If no power on during either, it is probably the power on switch gone. Any lights whatsoever showing?

Cut battery off


If it is plugged in, and still running from the battery, you likely have a bad adapter or power jack. If you have a multimeter, set it in a range that would display 16v dc voltage, then stick the red inside the plug from the adapter, and touch the black to the outside of the plug, and see if the voltage registers (most IBM laptops use 16 volt adapters).

VGA port problem


That could be a video card driver issue. It seems that when the projector is connected, windows detects it a create another screen using up more memory. Try download a latest video card driver for your laptop http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/license.do?filename=mobiles/1rd635ww.exe this is for Windows 200/XP for the IBM Thinkpad T42. If that doesn't work then you should also try updating your operating system. Hope that helps!
