Sounds like you've shorted something against this led wire. Did you maybe forget to slip that thin piece of paper or plastic back in before installing the new palm rests?
Let me know if this helps

  • plug in directly to a known-good outlet with the power cord
  • remove the memory
  • if 2 memory chips, swap one after another

Left palm rest gets hot very easily for my notebook


You can change the hard drive for a newer unit. Some older drives (Maxtor) put off alot of heat.

My compaq presario lcd is working but it has no lights


If by lights, you mean the LED lights located around the exterior of the laptop (like the power light, hard drive light, etc.) then you may have accidentally switched those off.

First you need to locate the 'FN' key. On most laptops it's located on the bottom left of the keyboard, under the 'shift' key.

Next you will need to look for a symbol on the keyboard that would represent the LEDs. It's usually a light bulb, and is almost always located on the 'Fx' keys on the top of your keyboard (F1, F2, F3, etc.).

Once you have located the correct key, you need to hold the 'fn' key that we found earlier, and press the 'Fx' key that corresponds to the LED (or light bulb) button.

For example, on a older model Gateway laptop, I will hold the 'FN' key on the bottom left, and press 'F1'.

If by lights you mean the backlighting for the LCD screen, which would make the LCD screen appear very dim, then you will have to have the screen serviced or replaced.

I hope that helps, and if you have any questions, please let me know.

Well my toshiba satellite u405-s2820 turns on but the screen is just black... what I'm I to do??


Firstly unplug everything from the laptop (even the power) and remove the battery, hold the power button down for 10secs then plug the power back in only, see what happens...

If nothings changed...
Try and plug a normal monitor into the VGA port and turn the laptop on;
you will get the toshiba POST screen if the graphics card still works (then the actual screen is at fault)
if you dont then the graphics card is at fault..


[Just a thought... does the laptop bleep when you first turn it on?]

Let me know how you get on...

Pc will not power on .Press main power button on the front of the server,all fans work and front Disk LED glows yellow. Power LED at rear glows green but LED on the front(light bulb symbol) not lit....


Open the case and check the connection between the case power button and the motherboard. unplug that connection and short out the pins on the mb. The computer should start up. If it doesn't, there is something wrong with the mobo. If it does, there is something wrong with the switch, or the connector wasn't tight.
