Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

My toshiba satellite L25-S1194 wont turn on. no lights, nothing. how could i fix this?


Try taking the battery out, plug the computer in, and see if it turns on. Press the "Power" button for at least 20 seconds (and press hard). If that doesn't work, put the battery back in, and do the same thing. I assume no lights appear like its charging (as you said). If this is the case, then you might have a dead charger (wire broke inside, power surge broke the adapter, etc). You may want to try a different charger of the same model (either from your local Best Buy or from a friend). If it does look like its charging, then your laptop's power supply has died (or the motherboard has died). This is a much bigger hardware problem and should be under warranty (or time to buy a new laptop). All data should be recoverable, however.

My computer says it is charging but as soon as i hit the power button it stops charging and does nothing even happens


Have you tried running the computer with just the AC plugged in and not with the battery? If not try that. It could be the battery is going out. I had a similar issue once. If that doesn't work it might be the power supply / powercord or it could be the motherboard.

Charger was plugged in and working fine, went into


OK unplug power supply from back of laptop, remove battery, insert power supply, if NO light, on laptop, power supply is broken..Replace. IF it is OK, hold power button ON for a while, or until, the PC starts, if/when it starts, shutdown, with power ON key, and then take out power supply, replace battery, replace power supply, turn laptop on, now should be OK.

Compaq nx5000 with new battery and new power


Dear,

Try pressing the CAPS LOCK. If CAPS LOCK is responding then it is surely your inverter.

It is a known problem with the nx5000 series laptop.

The FAN switches off because Intel SpeedStep which is absolutely normal.

I faced and solved at least 6 - 7 such problems on different nx5000 laptops

If CAPS LOCK is not responding then its your motherboard.

Good Luck and Regards

Power light shuts off after only 3 seconds


Disconnect the AC adaptor from the laptop and remove the Battery pack from the Battery bay. Then, remove the RAM module and reinstall it after cleaning the RAM slot. Next, connect the AC adaptor to the laptop then try turning it ON. Please make sure that the AC adaptor is connected to a functional wall outlet. If the laptop still doesn't turn ON then you may try cleaning the Battery bay and the metal contacts in the battery compartment then insert the battery and try turning ON the laptop. If the laptop still doesn't turn ON then the issue is with the power supply unit.

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.
