SOURCE: Problem with startup of XPS 1530

Well I aleredy encont that problem. You must do an "dell factory restore". I dont remember how to do it but call dell and ask for. If your laptop isin't in warenty they should tell you where to find it (free). If you are in warenty they will tell how to set the factory restore. I must warn you than there is a big risk to loose all your data in your hard drive (incluing your windows seting). Good luck

SOURCE: Thinkpad T61 Battery Problem

It is the same situation as what faced in the past few weeks! My battery has been used for years!
Generally speaking, our laptop battery also has its deadline for 1 year. After using it over the battery for 1 years, it will drop to about 60-70 percents of its capacity.
From what you said in the above, I think your battery might be damaged for being unreasonable used.
I suggest that you you should buy the new, and i have good websites for you: take a look if interested:

SOURCE: toshiba screen press f2 for set up and f12 bios management

I guess a new software install could have caused the issue. The could be conflict between devices.

Remove all the USB devices connected to the laptop. Remove external mouse and keyboard also if any.

Try booting. If it still does not boot then restart system and keep pressing F8 to view the boot options. If you get the boot screen then choose Safe mode option and try booting in to the desktop. Once the desktop is available go to Start-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.

If F8 does not work then probably you can do a complete reinstall of the OS by pressing F11 or Ctrl+F11. You will lose all the data in the system using this option and the system will be restored back to its factory settings. (This option works only if the laptop has manufacturer provided OS in it)

else you need to contact Toshiba tech support for any hardware related issues

Hope it helps !
Good Luck !

SOURCE: Acer 3680 needs several days rest before restarting.

Hi George,

If you power on with an external monitor connected, no function-F5 is necessary - it will default to the external monitor automatically.

I don't think Darkman is on the right path here (sorry Darkman). It is possible, but I suspect not. A damaged/corrupt page file won't fix itself automatically after 5-7 days and suddenly boot the PC.....honestly. If there are bad sectors on the hard drive though, this could certainly be the issue. We'll get to this in a bit....

We need to eliminate a few potential problems sketchy hardware.

Please remove the ram and clean the contacts on it, and the slot(s) with a pink pencil eraser. You want to make the contacts clean and shiny. The ram chips are under an access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Try to boot. If no good, read on.

Please try removing the hard drive drive from the laptop (see below). Try booting with no hd first. If you see an Acer splash screen (logo), and then 'no operating system found', then the hard drive is likely the issue:

If it boots consistently with no hard drive, then please try this:
Enter the bios of the laptop by pressing either F2 or del at boot time when you see the Acer logo. Go to 'boot' options, and make sure the optical drive is the first boot device at the top of the list. From here, you need to get a Windows XP cd (yes, I know you're running vista). Put the hard drive back in, boot the laptop to the cd and select the option to repair windows from the recovery console. Once you have a command/dos prompt, type the following:

chkdsk c: /r

This command will check the hard drive for file corruption and bad sectors. This will take 1-3 hrs probably, depending on the size of the hard drive. If it indicates that data was recovered from bad sectors, and the laptop boots now, shut it down, take it to a reputable repair shop immediately and ask them to clone your hard drive onto a new one. Bad sectors = impending doom.

If it won't boot with the hard drive removed....try removing the optical (dvd) drive. If still no joy with hd and optical removed, let me know.

You can access the hard drive from an access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the cover, remove any retaining screws for the hard drive and simply slide it to disengage the connector and pop it out. If still no boot, one screw on the bottom of the laptop will release the optical drive. Flip the laptop over, and try to visualize where the optical drive sits in the laptop. The screw will be near one of the corners of where the optical drive drive sits.

Please let me know how you make out. Don't worry... I will help you ascertain the cause of the issue :)

SOURCE: My Compaq presario V3000 laptop is not restarting

Do not re-install anything...

It is an overheating issue. The "paste" between the processor and the heat sink has deteriorated over time and the heat sink is separated from the cpu or not making a good heat conduction contact.

Although it is possible for you to do (take laptop apart), I suggest a repair shop.... but get an estimate and have it done while you wait... don't buy any other "services"..

Hope this helps!

Changed battery time off 1 hour screen half lite what do I do

Double check settings. you may have told it to dim not shut off from the sound of it. I've made the mistake myself. If not the case after double checking disconnect battery for a few and see if that help. Otherwise I'd say you may have a virus or something that is preventing it from shutting down.

Locked in emergency call screen

Sounds like dust on the sim card or phone needs to reboot. Switch phone off, then remove battery and sim card. Wait half an hour - have a cup of coffee :) Make sure sim is clean and refit. Refit battery and power up. Hopefully that will fix it.

My Lenovo Thinkpad T60 Won't load pass thinkpad Logo. I can't access Bios and ThinkVantage button is useless PLEASE HELP!

A burning smell is a good indication that some component burnt up. Could be a fan and that would cause it to shut down. If it's hung on the logo I would start by removing the memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if it boots past the logo. If it does then power down and add one item back in and test again until you find the bad part. Can you hear the fan spinning when you power it on?

T43 screen dims and laptop will not shut down

The screen will dim on battery power to save energy. The power settings, found when you right click the power icon in taskbar notification area and go to power options, can be changed to your personal preferences. The shut down issue may be what is running, I can't say what is running, but look at the Start up process in MSCONFIG and shut down what is not necessary at Start UP. Look at tutorials on Faster Start up and Shut down. There may be many items you can shut down/disable to speed up these events. QUESTION: Is this a upgrade to WIN 7 Ultimate, If so your computer me be a bit short on specs, in other words you have reached the computers hardware limits. How much RAM, CPU speed...etc.

Thinkpad A22m 2628-3SU laptop premature shutdown

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My Cub Cadet 2130 has a Kohler Command 12.5 Hp engine. I have had a recent problem where if I shut the engine off after running for a half hour or so it won't restart. Today it died on it's own...

You most likely need to replace the ignition module. You should find it under the shoud next to the flywheel, just follow the spark plug wire.

My 2005 sport trac basicly chokes down and won't restart. After afew hours it cranks right up! Last time was one and a half years ago ! Until today.

Clogged catalitic converters can cause this. The engine will start and run for a bit, but as the engine tries to exhaust the gases they have no where to go. And this will shut th engine down. To check remove one of the 02 sensors in front of the converter. If it runs fine theres your problem. If the converters are clogged badly, your engine will run better, but maybe not as well as it should. the reason being is that the hole for the 02 sensor is not big enough to vent all the exhaust.

T23 Thinkpad turns off during boot after restart

My guess would be ;-
A power supply problem with the battery and/or power adapter
The most likely one.
The CPU is overheating and shutting down and if you wait a while and it will power it up again, it will then run for a while and shut down again.
This can be caused by a faulty fan (its not spinning and needs to be replaced) or the vents are clogged with dust (needs to be cleaned and you may need to remove the fan assembly to do this).
