Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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.

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 :

Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

PC will not start-up after sudden crash


try unplugging the power cable, holding down the power button for 10 seconds, then plugging it back in and turning it back on. also, there should be a set of 4 lights on the back of the dell (A, B, C, and D) for diagnostic purposes. Check them and compare them to your model's light diagnostic look-up on Dell's website.

Computer crashed


Start wile pressing the F8 or TAB key and select the last time your computer worked properly, otherwise try to start in safe mode and restore it the previous day. If this does not rectify it or u are unable to even get there, best option is to Insert your OS CD and boot from CD ROM. Select install, but on the same partion that your OS is loaded on. The screen will display that another version of windows already exist. DO NOT SELECT AUTO REPAIR but go ahead untill u reach the option to repair by pressing the "R" key, do so and follow the instructions on the screen. This will not cause any loss of Data or programs installed other than correct the SYSTEM FILES of WINDOWS. Hopefully one of the above should work....sodeep

Computer start up problem


Capture the message that is displayed on the BSOD. There will be a bunch of numbers that will tell you what is wrong. I would open the side and re-seat the RAM and do a general cleaning of the fans.
Good luck!

try a CTRL+ALT+DELETE and select Start Task Manager and see if you can turn off some stuff to see if you can correct it. If you do it and it keeps happening and the same thing needs to be shut down try to see what it is related to and try to uninstall it.
