Try lithium batteries. Otherwise assume it needs repair.

My Dell vostro A840 Laptop shuts off after 5 seconds that I have turned it on, the blue light showing that is has turned. The screen is black, I don't even get the boot up screen. What will I do. thanks


Need to reinstall windows, insert your windows disk and boot from it.
If that does not work buy/get a new AC adapter and/or battery.
if that gets you no where open the case area around the fan use a can of compressed air n blow it all out.

I bought a barebones kit that has this motherboard. When I power it on, the system trys to turn on for about 5 seconds then the whole system shuts down. I called Asus support, they had me remove the cpu...


This could be a cmos battery or you need a bios update.
You will possibly need to call the manufacturer or go to the site and see if there is a bios update.
The cmos battery possibly needs to be replaced if this doesn't work then you will need to get a new board. This board is defective and if this is your second board then go to another manufacturer.

Toshiba Satellite P205d S7479 shuts down suddenly when on battery. The battery is brand new.


Try to turn off the laptop
Remove cables and battery on the pc
Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds
reinsert battery and cables on the laptop
Turn on the laptop

Check if the PC still shuts down. If it is, try to connect the power cable without the battery. If it turns on, call your pc manufacturer to replace the battery....

I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.

RCA prov712 battery will only last 5 minutes


Be sure to charge for AT LEAST 14 hours on the new battery, even if the charger light goes out - it's still trickle charging. It's normal for most camcorders to auto-shut off after 5 minutes, if it's not recording. But if your batt light comes on, the problem is probably with the battery.

Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support: Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer? Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on. Now, another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered up after that.
