Question about Computers & Internet

Philips X200 laptop crashes regularly.

The X200 Philips laptop shuts down (crashes) regularly. When trying to start it up it tries, displays the PHILIPS word, then an audible click is heard and it switches off. If I move the screen, even a fraction it then tries to start again, sometimes successfully other times it switches off again. Even tapping the computer can start it trying to start again. Eventually, by moving the screen backwards & forwards, the computer will start (hence this email) and I can commence using it. This has been looked at by an "engineer" who tried a complete re-boot to no avail. He thinks its a hardware issue. Have you any previous experience of a similar problem? I have not dropped it, or knocked it, it just started happening about 6 to 8 weeks ago. I was just wondering if you had any ideas what might be the cause/solution? Has any other owner of an X200 reported such an issue? Thanks. Phil N.

    Dear Wings-it, thanks for trying, but......firstly, this is a Philips X200, not a Dell, and, secondly, it's a laptop, so unplugging things is not an option. Nice try though.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tableau Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} I had something close to that and I solve the problem by replacing the motherboard but before you think of it, you can try different things.
Maybe some parts are shorted the microprocessor

So to start unplug the dvd player, the keyboard, mousepad, the screen.
If you ear an alarm, it’s mean the motherboard work so far.

Plug the screen back and try to restart and so on.
If it stop working you know what part to replace.

But if you stuck only with the screen on, it might still be the motherboard or microprocessor.
To open it, download the service manual :

you have several possible problems :
motherboard problem or hd problem, i need to know what shows on the screen , but in the mean while , take the battery of the place and the power adapter and press the power button for at least 15 seconds, then without the battery, only with the power adapter try to reboot, if that doesn't work take the memory of and the hard drive also and repeat the procedures, if nothing of this helps, you need to replace the motherboard

Not booting up, HD clicks


You have what is called the "click of death". Your hard drive has failed and it's almost impossible to repair the drive to a working condition again. The drive should be located on the underbelly of the laptop. You'll need a small philips head screwdriver to remove the faceplate that holds it in. Once removed you can simply purchase a replacement drive and then reload windows from either the recovery disc that came with the system or regular windows disc.
