SOURCE: Screen on laptop goes white

It might be a Vista problem.
You may want to update the graphics driver once and check it.

SOURCE: aspire one not turning back on after being in "sleep mode"

do you leave the laptop open or close when you are no using it?
if you leave it open, there is a switch at the top of the F keys, close to the LCD panel. press that button will turn on the the machine. if not, press the enter key twice and wait 10 sec. it should come up.

SOURCE: aspire one with windows XP. Won't turn back on while in sleep mod

I've had spotty luck with Windows and sleep or hibernate modes. I would suggest just disabling sleep/hibernate mode. The options can be found under the control panel under power options. While turning off the sleep mode won't help your battery life, if you ask me, it beats having to power off the laptop by pulling the battery out. If you don't want to turn it off, you can try adjusting the amount of time it lets pass before it goes to slee.

SOURCE: not turning back on after sleep mode

I had the same problem when I first bought my Acer Aspire One a few weeks ago. I searched the web for answers, but it didn't really seem like anyone had a solution. However, one guy on a forum or website said something that gave me an idea - he said something like: What's the problem? Just open it up, hit the power button, type your password, and it wakes up.

Well, that didn't seem helpful to me at the time that I read it, but after thinking about it, I had a hunch. I had not set up my netbook to have a password (yet). So I did. And it's been waking up from sleep mode like it should ever since!!!

Hopefully, if you're reading this, setting a password will work for you, too. If you don't know how to set a password, here goes... Start...Control Panel...User Accounts...Change an Account...[Pick your name.account]...then the option to create a password should come up. Let us know if this works for you!

How can i eject a stuck CD/DVD from disk drive of a levovo ideacentre A600? I didn't find any emergency-hole. please help.


Welcome to Fixya.

Try booting in BIOS mode by tapping on 'DEL' or 'F1' key as soon as you turn the computer on (while seeing the LENOVO screen). When in BIOS, you can eject the disc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Screen is blank (white) when turned on.


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
Turn off the system. Unplug the power cord from the mains. Keep the power button of the cpu (not the monitor) pressed for 5-6 seconds. turn the unit bcak on and check.

Please reseat the monitor cable that connects to the desktop ensuring a secure connection.
Further, if you are able to see the Lenovo Logo on startup try booting to safe mode by tapping F8 key on the lenovo logo itself.
Howevre, in case you are not even able to view the lenovo logo on startup, then it could be a fault with the lcd monitor itself requiring a repair.

My computer, a lenovo y510 laptop malfunctioned. After inserting the recovery, and attempting to boot from the disk, the screen simply goes blank instead of opening the normal vista install center.


Hi lightning_ha,

Based on your situation, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Turn on the system then insert the recovery disk inside the ODD.

2. Now turn off the computer while recovery disk is inside.

3. Turn on the computer, the moment you press the power button, immediately tap the F12 key and press it continuously.

4. Now you have the boot option. Select CD/DVD/ODD by pressing enter then continuously tap it until you see the Windows is loading a file.

5. Wait until it goes 100%.

6. Now it will ask you on what partition you will put the operating system. Just select the partition that has a large capacity or size.

7. Just wait until it completes the whole installation.

8. Restart the computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

Lenovos10e wont start up


if there is no power:
1.) please check the cables
2.)try to do a powerdrain by removing the battery and adapter-w/o any power source at all try to hold down the power button for 10 secs.
3.)try to plug in adapter again and check if will power up(w/o the battery.

check for the light indicators in front if lit up:
-power
-battery
-wireless
-harddrive

if there is power:
1.) try to powerdrain-if no go
2.) try to go in to safe mode by pressing F8 on the first screen you'll be seeing once you turn on pc-if no go
3.) try OKR or recovery button found near the power button-it is the button w/ a curved arrow symbol
-be reminded that just in case OKR button works it might erase all data in your harddrive, so back up first files(documents, pics) you still need.
-choose full system recovery and just click on next
->if no go
4.) try to use a recovery cd from lenovo by booting into it
*insert cd->turn off pc and turn it back on and then on the first screen keep on tapping F10. just choose boot to optical diskdrive or cd-rom/dvd-rom.

*if no disk available and still in warranty call lenovo for further help or buy an Operating System disk from microsoft or from computer stores(OS disk for XP, Windows 7).

My lenovo t60 screen goes black 15 seconds after


Hi, try to boot into safemode, turn your system on then keep on tapping F8 to get the windows advance Menu screen, select safemode.

In the safemode windows go to Control panel and check your power options, you will see what time frame your system has for the LCD when turning off.

If this does not fix the issue, try booting into safemode with networking for you to be able to go online in safemode try updating your BIOS from your Manufacturers Website, Updating your bios may fix the issue.
