Question about Computers & Internet
The blue power light is shown to the side of the computer. The power lead is green (on). On start up nothing else happens - dead black screen. I have tried other plug sockets and tried with and without the battery in. Any sensible advise
Where the display output settings accidently turned on?Try holding down the Fn-F7 keys.

Does the hard drive/thinking light blink for a minute or so like it's going through it's normal boot routine without an image? Can you hook up an external monitor? If you take it into a pitch black room do you see any image at all? If it's there but faint then chances are the backlight has a bad connection or is dead and would need to be repaired.

Remove all connectors, media and devices (cables, USB devices, floppies, CDs etc)
1. Press AND hold the power button for 10 seconds. Light should go out.
2. Remove battery.
3. Plug in PSU (the AC power supply unit)
4. Press power button.
5. If the laptop starts, go all the way to desktop and run the laptop for 20 minutes or so.
6. Shut down and remove PSU.
7. Re-attach PSU and then insert battery.
8. start laptop. If it starts, go all the way to desktop and use laptop for an hour or so, to monitor the battery state, see if it is charging. If it is, go to step 9. If not, test PSU and battery, to see which needs replacement.
9. Otherwise open START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS.
10. Uncheck HIBERNATION in the tab that applies.
11. Set all spin down, sleep/suspend and monitor settings to "never".
12. Apply/OK and Close Power CP
13. Now leave laptop on, let the laptop sit, idle (or use it) for at least 3 hours.
14. Shut down and remove PSU, then restart.
15. If the laptop will not start, or did not show a full charge before shutting down, replace the battery.
16. Go back and set spin down/suspend and monitor power settings to DEFAULT, but do not use hibernation any more on a 3 year old laptop!

SOURCE: MY LAPTOP WILL NOT TURN ON
1. Remove all USB devices such as printers, mp3 players etc etc.
2. Remove the power-cable and the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
4. Put the power-cable back in but not the battery and none the USB devices.
5. Turn the computer on
If this doesnt work can you hear any fans or hard disk activity when you press the power button?

What you need to do is to get the manual for the motherboard os you can reset the BIOS. On the other hand, you may not be able to preform that. This model is like a netbook and try this, remove the battery and the power cord. give it 15min. put the battery back in and reboot the system and than the power cord. that should help. if not, than a tech person is your next step.

I think your processor has died. I have had the same problem.Did it overheat if so its likely that it is the cpu. Good news is that it is easy to swop it. Bad news is that not many shops sell laptop cpu's

Tips for a great answer:
If the PSU power supply units fan is not working the PSU is faulty
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd floppy have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs
power and data to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems
computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
you might not have enough computer ram
not having enough computer ram will run your computer over its limits putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit and can cause memory dumps
you might have to many programs trying to or accessing the internet at the same time
scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager
applications you will see whats running
if you see anything you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific
program if you or computer does not require it to run and
some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer
also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you
dont need to be and users you will see who is using your computer
you might need to add more computer ram
if you're not sure if a module is right for your system use the
Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line
from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility of the ram before making any purchase
might be getting hot
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease
hope this helps
