Asus m50v wont boot up

My Asus M50V laptop shut off randomly the other day it was very warm and i had been noticing it was running hot recently so i ordered a new fan for it. put the new fan in and the laptop will only turn on but will not boot up. i can hear the disc drive kick on and the indicator lights will come on but thats it. ive tried the unplug and remove batter and hold power button trick. ive tried pushing the reset button on the bottom. ive tried a combination of the two things but still nothing.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

SOURCE: Acer Aspire not booting

I'm inclined to believe something is going on with the DVD drive, perhaps a I/O cable or driver issue, it just seems like what you said about the drive sounding like it's trying to read is a clue, what I would try if you have not already ,is since you said you can get to get to the Bios usually the default for boot sequence is CD/DVD drive first unless you change it, see if you can change the boot sequence from DVD drive first to HDD first and see if you can bypass it, then it might just boot, if that works then that was the cause,I see no other reason why the Drive should be trying to read other than the boot sequence. if not then it might be more complicated and could be a hardware issue somewhere,

Hoep this helps.

SOURCE: Compaq presario a900 model a931nr wont boot, help!!!?

Sounds like the battery is in trouble (discharged) or the charger is bad. If you have access to a voltmeter, read the voltage across the power cable plug with the pack plugged into the house outlet socket. Does a lamp work when plugged into the same socket? If the pack checks ok, then the battery may not be able to receive charge. Have it checked by a dealer.

Random multiple misfire code. Cat gets glowing red hot. Sluggish lack of power/acceleration


Combining the hot cat converter and the missfire code, I would lean toward a fuel problem. Too lean or pressure too low.
If it was an ignition problem the cat would usually not be hot.
If the exhaust was stopped up, you would not usually get the multiple missfire issue. Just lack of power.
It could be a leaking EGR or other vac problem, and a dirty fuel filter too.

Asus k52f keeps shutting down randomly


I have seen the odd case where the power supply cannot keep up with the demands when the laptop is running causing it to shut down, but first! remove the main battery to see if that helps, no change! I recommend replacing the power supply adapter in hopes it will correct the problem. Go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to power supply and go through the list of prices.

X50r shuts down randomly


Sounds like it is overheating. Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it. You also might want to get a laptop cooler.

I can' t install Windows Xp on my Asus M50V ( intel centrino 2 T9400).


You need to make sure you have a Windows XP install with Service Pack 3 with it. You can not install the earlier versions of XP on your platform. If you have your own XP disk and another computer with a CD burner you can do what is called "Slipstream" your XP disk to include Service Pack 3 on it. Then you can install XP+SP3 from one CD onto your laptop.

First you need a copy of windows XP. This I can not help with, beg/borrow/ste..... I mean ask a friend for his purchased and fully unused license for installation.

Next, you need the official SP3 file is available for download on Microsoft's servers. Here's the direct link to the English version.

Next, download nLite (and .NET 2.0 or higher from the windows update site.)

Then, follow these instructions to slipstream the CD and install away!

I would post a complete step-by-step here, but the work is already done by LifeHacker and it is done nicely with little pictures and tid-bits to help you along... So why re-invent the wheel :)

Let me know if you need anything else,

Brian

My laptop Sony Vaio CS 320J is shutting down with out any notice(not proper shut down but poweroff while running) and not booting again for @ least 2 mins. recently this issue started and this is...


Remove the bottom pan to expose the cooling fan, clean all dirt out of the heat sink and fins,and clean fan, next remove the heat sink to expose the processor ic, remove the old thermal grease with rubbing alcohol, and apply fresh thermal conductive compound to the heat sink and processor, "not to much! just enough to cover the critical areas and assemble. In most cases this will solve the shutdown problem.

When i play games the laptop would shot down. prior to shutting down i could hear the fan of the laptop very loudly


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

Laptop keeps on shutting down unexpectedley


If it shuts down randomly then you may have a virus. If you notice that it only shuts down when you hold it in your lap or on the bed then it means that it is overheating and you need to let air circulate in the area of the cooling fan. Also, if you recently "looked inside" the laptop and your forgot to put back a screw, that hardware device may disconnect itself and sending your laptop so a forced shutdown in order to protect itself.
