    It was not in a docking station or port replicator. I did remove all power sources. It did not help. I eventually did unplug the power source and remove the battery. I held down the power button for 30 seconds then plugged it in. It came on then shut down. I put the battery back in and tried it again with no power supply. Held down power button and it came on. I did find out last night, that it was my processor. Luckily, I had a spare laptop laying around just like the one that died. Put my hard drive in the other laptop and viola!!! I'm in business. I will say, though.. for some reason, when i would plug in my power source, my laptop would immediately shut down on the old machine. But, as of this am, my problem has been fixed! Yayy!! :)

    Was it in a docking station or port replicator? If you remove all power sources, does that help?

How do I get home page back after computer reached 100% configuring windows computer is frozen on configuring display


Hi
First try pressing down the power button for up to 10 seconds or until the laptop powers down. Wait a couple of minutes and see if the computer reboots properly. If it does, fine, if not power the laptop down again and again wait a couple of minutes, power on and press F8 whilst it is booting to get a menu up which should say on one of the entries something like "revert to last known good settings" Highlight this option using the keyboard arrow keys (mouse won't usually work here) and pressing return.
This should set your computer back to before the update that is causing the problem.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How do I get my terca730xcdt to go pass the windows 98 screen its like its froze


If it is really frozen on that screen, unplug the power cable and take out the battery to shut it down. Once shut down put the battery back, plug the power cable back in, and reboot. If it freezes again you got a serious hardware or software problem.

Laptop frozen on logging off mode, can't access anything


Have you tried starting in safe mode to see if it will boot that way? In case your not sure how turn the computer off then when off hit power on and just start pressing F8 over and over until you get the black screen asking about safe mode. You might hear some beeping while doing it dont worry about that. Choose start in safe mode with networking.Quick question is there any reason the lapshows the screen of windows starting vertically like that instead of the normal horizontal way from left to right? Just curious if you did that or thats new too.

Laptop wont reboot


Hard Boot - Press the power button till it shuts down. Not an uncommon problem. It's just Windows.

The screen is frozen on Windows is shutting down


Turn off the power to the device, remove the battery pack.

Now replace battery pack and power supply and try rebooting.

If you still have a problem report it again on this thread.

Won't reboot....Dell screen comes up, brief


I'm pretty sure that you are having a boot failure, not all to figure out is whether the HDD is bad or just the operating system having a problem.

Hold the Fn Key and press the power button to start diagnostics on the system and see if you get a hard drive failure message. If you do replace it. If diags pass, then try booting to the Windows XP CD, and run CHKDSK /R at the recovery console (Press R at 1st prompt to enter RC)

Laptop is frozen on logging off screen. How can I finish the shutdown. Control/Alt/Delete won't reboot.


I have an asus pc 1000hd that does this every now and then. I hold the power button down and the whole machine shuts off after a few seconds. Either that or you can take out the battery, wait a few seconds and then reinsert it

Frozen screen


try to log in safe mode when the laptop is booting by pressing F8 key, you will see many option select boot in safe mode, if you can boot in safe mode then reboot normally. if the problem remains then you have to repair or reinstall your operating system.
