Re: how to turn on

Make sure you plug in power adapter. Since its second hand, the battery might not be functioning and maintaining a charge. If this is not the problem, then you could check the RAM. See if it has 2 modules, so that you could try each individually. If only one, then you might need to borrow an exact type to try to see if that is the problem.

Why wont my Gateway NV53A36u turn on ?

if your charger is ok then it will be a problem with the dc jack (where your charger plugs in to) or your actual motherboard.

My acer is not coming on ,there is power going into my lap top but the screen is completly blank?

Bring your laptop under sunlight. If you look very closely and can see your screen then your backlight went out. Otherwise there might be a loose/broken connection to your lcd.

Laptop says "wireless hardware not


i believe that when looking at the screen
look at the very bottom right hand side
then look just below the screen on the very top bar of the keyboard
on the right hand side you may see a push key with a picture of what looks like a small satallite
push once and wait a few seconds and it should enable and then show a blue light
push again and it should disable

many thanks

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.

try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

My lap topwill not turn on.

Try to check if your AC adapter has a light itself. If it the light is off. Then try a known good adapter. If the AC light is green, then try to wiggle the cord from the port and see if it ain't loose. Try to also check if the AC pin is not bent or broken.

I'm sorry, but are you saying the cd won't run, or the cd is saying that you can't use aapt? Please clarify. Toshibas have a manual on/off switch for their wireless module also,which will of course need to be in the "on" position to work. Let me know please. Thanks
