Hi I am a laptop technician, and it sounds like you have a power problem.

Try removing the main battery and starting the laptop on the mains cable only. If the laptop starts fine then you probably have a problem with either the battery or the power board in the laptop.

If the laptop doesn't start when doing this, remove the mains power lead from the laptop and put the main battery back on the laptop. Try starting the laptop off the main battery only and if the laptop starts normally then you most likely have a broken/loose socket that the power lead plugs into in the back of the laptop (a very common problem) or the power board in the laptop is faulty. If the laptop doesn't start or goes off very shortly after pressing the power button it could just be that the battery is flat as a broken power socket on the laptop often stops the main battery from charging.

I hope this helps.

Why is my Sony VAIO VPCEB33FM green power light flashing?


It won't be the cpu. If it was, nothing would happen. I would look for a GPU issue, possible over heat.

My labtop wont load my desktop, but the screen comes on.


this might sound really silly but some laptops after a while get a glitch where they cant power down fully and go into sleep or hibernate adn i have seen it happen to people who do not allow the battery to completely drain occasionally, had a family members did this recently. Just to rule it out turn it on and shen you hear fans and see lights even with no desktop, press and hold on the power button 3-5 sec until it shuts itself down, then do a normal start when you can see no lights or hear any sounds. Good luck.

Computer turns on but windows does not load after the page that says acer press f2 for setup screen goes black and lights stop flashing. Tried to start in safe mode still wont go just comes to screen that...


Well in the start up process this is really what happen the first couple second of the computer starting up...
the first couple seconds after hitting the power button it does a hardware check..
All hardware passed it proceeds to the software check the drivers and stuff...
if the computer comes to a black screen after start up, or any weird writings, then basically some hardware didn't pass the test and failed causing the start up to fail...
If thats the case i would recommend taking it into a local repair store or calling manufacturer if still under the standard 1 year warranty...
nothing to lose, but a welcome screen to gain, give it a shot...

Dell inspiron 1100 wont stay on


Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.
