Samsung q430 stuck splash screen

Unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to reboot. If that doesn't work, unplug open Memory Bay, reseat Memory Mods. Open the HDD bay, reseat the HDD. You may have jarred something loose. One can only hope you didn't damage the HDD.

Newer HP Pavilion dv6000 turned off while in use and wont turn on

1.Start your computer and see if your hear your fan noise,and cannot see anything on screen then there is problem with your power supply.

2.If you cannot hear your fan noise,and do not see anything on screen,then there is problem with your motherboard

3.if you hear fan noise and can see something on screen,then it is the issue with your hard disk (very less cases)

Mostly it would be the 2nd case that you will have to get your motherboard replaced

Powers up but doesn't turn on screen stays blank.

This could be a few things depending on what it does when your power it on.

If there is nothing more than the light comes on, there is no noise and it just sits there. You are looking for any flashing indicators or any noise from the hard drive. Usually you can hear the drive or even feel it or the cd/dvd make some kind of noise. What we are looking for is any kind of normal boot activity.

If it apears to boot normally but with no picture then the problem is your backlight system. You should actually be able to see your desktop if you get close and sort of off to one side. It wil be a very ghost like or faint image. Depending on what is wrong expect to pay $100 for a repair.

If it does nothing at all then this usally indicates something more serious. It can be a ram failure or cpu failure which are fairly easily replaced. It can also be a motherboard problem. Generally this tends to be the later (motherboard). You should consider a replacement laptop if this is the case as this will not be cost effective to fix. It can be done but you will be spending the same as you would for a new laptop or a good portion of it anyway.

I have a 4 month old Dell Studio 1535 laptop, with audio problems

Firstly check that the microphone level is down or turned off as this sounds like some sort of feedback that's being produced.

Check the microphone and try to play music again.

Please post back

Good luck.

When i turn it on the has nothing on it

Check to make sure that your memory sticks are correctly placed in the slots and have not popped out. You may have a faulty hard drive or motherboard. If you are not getting any picture of any sort on your video, then *********** board may be faulty or your video card was disabled. If you get bios or DOS start up, then your HD may have crashed.
Have you tried to boot up pc with an installation disc in the drive? Any difference? What exactly do you see when it is booted?

You can try reseating the memory and the hard drive if you can get to it, but it sure sounds as though the motherboard is shot.
You can take it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.

My laptop will be right in the middle of something and then just shut off, even being plugged in..what could cause this?

Heat can cause this issue. Try using some compressed air and blow out the fans and heat sync.

Fan Noise

You can squirt a little of that sewing machine oil very sparingly into the centre of the fan. Else you can replace the fan it sounds like something is worn who knows your oil might boost it up to becoming better. It is a hardware problem and nothing to do with your software or firmware.
