    scuba,



    Does this happen after a period of inactivity or while you are using it ? Have you set the Power Options in Control Panel



    How old is the laptop ?



    Have you tried removing the battery and just using the power cable ?

That sounds as if the processor is overheating start it in bios and monitor it the cpu temp and fan speed if there are severe fluc. replace the fan and or cpu check the power supply first as it may be defective and cutting off due to coil overheating

I connect my desktop pc but monitor is totally dark. Maybe I've inadvertently set the colors off so I need to know how to work out blindly the buttons on monitor to see anything at all


If you disconnect the video cable from the back of the computer, If the monitor stays dark, and no pop up that says no video, check cable or something like that, and the power LED will stay green, if this happens, it is a bad monitor. If you get the pop up message and the LED turns orange, you are getting no video from the pc to the monitor, and pressing buttons will not fix this. It is something in the PC causing the issue. If all cables are good, and connected right.

Emachines Will not detect ethernet cable


With the machine on and the cable connected on both ends (1 to computer and the other end to the Router or Modem that needs to be powered up) look where the cable plugs into your computer. Is there a green or orange light on. There may be two. Normally one that stays on steady is the CONNECT. This one is normally green color LED. When Data is being transmitted a second LED will be flickering showing data transfer. If you have no LED lights showing directly by the Ethernet cable, try another cable. Reminder: also make sure you have power on the router/ cable/dsl modem.
Hope this helps..

I have toshiba equium a100-338 and the power button will not work


The cable (Wire) stays attached to the Power Button Board,

No, I'm wrong? The Flat Flex Cable (FFC) does come out of a ZIF connector on the Power Button Board?
You may wind up buying the Power Button Board, and Flat Flex Cable, then.

Or you may find a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, that can repair the cable.

The printer won/t connect even with a disc


if the printer wont connect to your desktop or laptop but has power, changing the cable would be posible, or check the integrity of the ports that you are connecting, if a desktop or laptop does not detect the printer it only means that you have a bad printer cable

Laptop Not Power on Battery Mode


I understand that while the laptop is connected to the power supply it's ok, and while it boots up, even with the cord disconnected, it stays on but only briefly, but after a while, it shuts itself down?
If this is so, it would appear that your battery is dead and needs replacing. Your laptop will still work, as long as it's connected to its power supply. It should even work with the battery removed, provided it's plugged into the adapter.

Dimension 5100 will not turn on


Try checking your Computer Management Services.

I had a similiar problem with a laptop. Just stopped working one day. Could not shutdown because it would not restart without disconnecting power. Could not reboot, because it would not restart without power being disconnected.

Checked Computer Management Services and found some of the services had been turned off.

Try this and let me know if you need more help.

-Orange light on Power-up button stays lit. -No Video, just black screen. using AGP Video card TNT 32mb / Model CT5823 I've replaced the battery, double checked the cables, Power supply is good. Gatew


This is typical of a failed power supply. Look on the back of the power supply, there may be a red switch for input voltage. Unplug the power cord, flip that switch a few times and then plug the cable in and try again. If nothing changes, see if there's a small black button on the back of the power supply. If there is, unplug the power cable and press the button and hold it for 10-15 seconds. If an LED flashes or turns on, then plug the cable back in and try again. If this all fails, replace the power supply.

Monitor flicks off


If you have switched monitors and the problem persists, I would first look at your cabling, if you did not use the same cable on both monitors then the drivers would be suspect. Go to your video cards site and update the drivers after checking all your cables and connections, also check that the video card is properly seated on the motherboard (if its not integrated onto the motherboard). An easy way to check the monitors, is to plug them into another computer (EG: laptop) and they should have the same problem there, i doubt they will from the symptoms you are having. also try bypassing the UPS and plug the monitor straight into an extension cord or wall.
Remeber, try this in steps, not all at once, so you can tell what works..

Hope this Helps!
