Re: Laptop Power

Try this: power up then turn on the hibernate feature of windows. this should eliminate any need to ever hit the power button again.

Re: Laptop Power

I fixed some notebooks with this kind of problem. The switches used in almost all notebooks are small pcb-mounted tactile switch. In time the contacts corrode or dirt go inside. The easy way is to remove the switch cover and cleaning the contact. If you can solder SMD you can replace with a new one...that is if you can open the notebook. Dismantling a notbook is a headache. The switch looks like one in the attached photo

Any solutions to my notebook problems

The first thing to always try is resetting your PC. With a laptop, you must unplug it and remove the battery. While the laptop is unplugged and the battery removed, hold down the power button for a minimum of 30 seconds. This will reset the PC. Plug it back in and see if it works now. Always try to reset the PC first, for many different problems.

My hp pavilion elite m9152p shows a black screen. If i leave the computer for a few hours and come back the computer is still on, but the screen is black. monitor says no signal... I always have to hold...

Does the power button flash when there is a black screen? Could be that the laptop is in hibernation mode. Go to the tray icons next to the clock, click the battery symbol, more power options, and change the settings of "turn off display" and "put the computer to sleep" to "never". Usually to get the computer out of sleep mode, you just click the power button to turn it on again.
Hope this helps.

Question about a fujitsu lifebook P5010. when i power up i have a blank/black screen although i can hear the fan running constantly. the little lcd display area next to the power button works. there are...

Hi insurancedud...

Try blowing the dust out of the laptop by using compressed air in a can or an air compressor, the compressor is the pefered choice (max air pressure 90 psi).
Blow the air into the fan discharge of the laptop, (be sure not to overspeed your fan) then blow the air into the intake of the fan.
Do this a few times until you have no more dust in your laptop.
Then see if that cooled it down, if not maybe your fan is faulty and not cooling properly.
You can also put a cooling pad with fans under the laptop to help cool , they have the laptop coolers with usb power.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Acer aspire 4930 wont turn on

If the power LED on the Notebook is blinking but not turning ON then the issue is related to the power supply unit and service is required.

The power button doesnt seem to be working

It sounds like a short in the button itself. If you have a soldering gun, take it apart and resolder the connection. This is typical for Acer laptops.
It's either the button itself or the jack where the power supply plugs in. It's not real difficult.

Cutting down power to my dell laptop while left for downloading

Donot worry the computer and laptop are build to work 24hr, and here the people doesnot know that putting off and on the pc always is bad , coz this with time destroy the cpu or board,putting off and on the laptop effects the heat pipes on the laptop and this leads with time to cpu damage or board damage.
Turning a Windows system "OFF" (from 'Start> Turn Off Computer...' button) is not the best way to put your system away for the night (or extended periods) and forcing a shutdown with the power button is NEVER a good option; only a last resort.
It prevents Windows from 'housekeeping' system files to get ready for the next start-up, and may, over time, cause file corruption; slow down; even break Windows.

This can be issue with the Power Button which might have worn out with repeated usage.
