Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop won't turn on!!

I left it while it was shutting down--I left it there for 12 hours, assuming that shutting down would have worked. This morning I take it, and while the battery is blue (meaning it's fully charged--all the colors I've seen on my computer are either blue or orange), the power button is flashing from orange to purple, and when I press it to try to turn it on, it will glow blue, as if trying to turn on, but no motors hum, the computer doesn't turn itself on. What is wrong with it?!?! I don't have the money to get it fixed at the shop unless it is completely necessary, so please tell me what I can do, and if I can't do it, where to go and how much it will cost.

    While it was left by the telephone, I'm saying that I can't turn on the computer. Not only is the monitor black, but when I "turn it on," nothing happens. The power button will glow blue, but after that, the computer doesn't turn on, I can't hear any noises typical to that of a computer starting up.

    No, you don't understand. Not just the battery indicator is blue, when I turn on the POWER, the POWER says that it's on, even though it isn't. When I press the power button, it turns blue, which means on, but nothing else happens. No noises, no clicks, no hums, NOTHING.

Dont panic

while you had left it for shut down, was it near by some where the Magnetic field like telephone, Speakers or Power adapter was placed to near to the screen

if your answer is yes, then the changes in colour on the screen is because of that. You need to demagnatized it with the gun. But in case you dont have it, relax it will get solved automatically after few hours of usage.

Turn on the Computer and then turn off properly. leave it for 5 minutes and then you start the Pc now you will be able to use the computer as before.
i hope this resolves your query

all the best

M15x gaming laptop screen wont come on after sleep mode or reboot. What can I do?

Looking at your last comment, it looks like you got it working??? Just an heads up, in the future, you might not want to put your laptop into sleep/standy mode while performing an update. If you lose power or have to do a hard shutdown you could corrupt the update and your PC might not boot back up.

Hp pavilion dv5 1113us overheats and shuts down

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 dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

My laptop keeps saying hibernating and i cannot get to menu screen.

Definition: Hibernate is another option for powering down your laptop. When you use Hibernate all data will be saved to the hard drive in a compressed form. Once you start up from Hibernate mode you will be able to work with the applications and documents you left open before putting the laptop into Hibernate.
Hibernate is best used to conserve laptop battery power when you will be away from the laptop for more than a few minutes. You can put your laptop into Hibernate overnight or when you will be away from it for a few hours. Examples: Rather than shutting down my laptop each night, I use Hibernate to help conserve battery power and enable me to access my open files quicker in the morning.

If you are not going to use your computer for a few hours, it is a good idea to put it to sleep (also known as mode) to save power. If you are not going to use the computer for more than a day, it is usually best to turn it off.

hope it helps.... please rate if you like my post...thanks

Excessive heat could ruin a battery. You might just want to get another battery for it (check ebay or

One other thing to try is to run it on battery until it is forced to shut down and then let it set that way without turning it off for half an hour to completely discharge the battery, then recharge it fully again. See if that might help refresh the battery.
