    You could try disabling the power settings in the BIOS. I have seen them conflict with the OS.

How do I power on my midiland mai-760 it's stuck in standby mode

If it is simply stuck in standby mode, try reconnecting the power and pressing the power button from there. If the power button doesn't work, try using the remote. If that doesn't work, try to replace the remote's batteries and try again.

Lc195emx stuck in standby mode

Hi D
Sounds like the Switch Mode Power Supply is failing to Power Up.
Often Caused by Bad Electrolytic Capacitors inside the Power Supply Circuitry.
Probably a replaceable PCB Module.
Take it in to your dealer or Electronics technician.

Sorry for the repost but i have had trouble responding to your experts for some reason the comment window won't allow me to type from iPad. Anyway, after the hard drive issues which will be solved by the...


Flashing power light indicates that there's a problem with the RAM. You're referring to a Standy by mode when you turned on the computer. If you have a spare ram you can try to use 1 to check if the RAM that you're using is faulty. Mobo is fine dont need to worry about that. No need to remove the CMOS battery. If you know someone who has the same ram or another computer you can try that. Usually it happens to Desktop Computers that monitor was on standby mode when they have a bad ram.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My Vaio will not come out of standby mode without having to be shut all the way down and rebooted, I have adjusted the power setings to ensure that nothing is preventing it from going into standby mode....

If the 10-sec thing doesn't work, then try this:
- unplug the mains power.
- remove the battery.
- leave for a minute.
- fit the battery back.
- plug in the mains lead.
- try switching the laptop on.

If it works, then run Windows Update to download the latest fixes to try & stop this happening again.

If it does happen again, try going to the website of the laptop's manufacturer & check on their Support pages to see if they have a fix for your problem.

Ok, I want this off my screen. If it is stuck in standby mode as you say, press and hold the power button until the computer goes "dead." Then turn it back on. If this doesn't work, unplug it and take the battery out for a while.

Stuck on Standby

Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.

Hope this may help;

I'm still not sure about your question. Let me quess that by saying power/standy light goes to red...that mean your computer
is going into standby mode.!!!! So do it this way..on the left or right top corner of your notebook not the monitor, you should be having a small pin pointing up..I think that pin is use when you close the lid of your Laptop and it make your laptop goes into standby mode.When I mean goes into standby(sleep mode) the first think you can notice that your monitor light will be off and you can still see a very light image.So maybe this pin is stuck try to push it down for several times..
best of luck, takecare
