Question about HP NX9010 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop boots ok. No fan on startup now + power light flashes

The laptop boots fine. It used to have the fan going on boot up, which was normal enough. There have been some rattly sounds coming from the fan in the recent months, but it didnt seem to be a big problem as the laptop has continued to work fine until yesterday.

Now there is no fan going on boot up just a whine-ing sound, as if the fan is trying to move.
The power light flases on and off. (not sure what this means)

(From what i recall, there does seem to be additional fans that come on when the laptop is working extra hard, and i dont know if its safe to keep using it with this in mind(i.e. that they will come on if it gets too hot). However, im not chancing turning the thing on when there may be no means to cool it!)

Any suggestions as to how to trouble shoot this would be much appreciated.

I am thinking that your cooling fan is shot, maybe the bearing went out since it is whining. You could possibly use a chill mat that plugs into a USB port. Until you can get it fixed.

Do any lights come on when you press the power button? If not, did you get all the cables reconnected properly? If lights come on or fans come on when you press the power button, then it sounds like the screen has gone bad. That is the symptoms you are describing.

If you had no issue in safe mode the only thing I've seen like that is a virus that cuts of your use of I/O ports. boot into safe mode and try doing a system restore to a time before this problem occurred. IF that doesn't solve the problem try doing a clean install of the OS

Won't start up - power supply ok, but no power to laptop


Try removing the battery, plug the power cable into the laptop while it is already plugged into the wall then hold the power button down till it comes on. If/when it works, let it boot all the way, shut it down and put the battery back in. It should boot normal again.
It happens due to a relay tripping after a power surge. That procedure resets the relay. Works on a few name brand laptops, including Toshiba.

Acer laptop power button and fan problem


This is usually something to do with network booting, see if your PC is trying to boot from some sort of network device, or network address, real or imaginary, It may also be a virus, trying to connect, somewhere, at boot up, so run a rootkit check too. Check all network settings and privacy settings too.
Here is a program that runs at boot time and tells you what is going on and how to speed up your boot time, it may help. copy/paste below. http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/BootVis/4-19687-1.html

I cannot get my laptop to start up from bios startup menu


Sounds like either your hard drive's going bad,  or the boot device order has been changed in the BIOS.   When you check the boot order to make sure the hard drive should boot,  you could also see if it has boot devices for a usb flash memory stick  or a disc, e.g., CD-ROM.  If so, and you set it to boot, you could download a "live CD," e.g., Knoppix or Ubuntu, and use it to make a bootable usb stick or  burn it to a CD, and put it in your laptop before you power it up.   If it works ok running from the live image, you know your hard drive is the problem.

Acer Aspire 5315 won't boot, black screen


I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.

Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up

Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.

Did the following:

1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see http://www.insidemylaptop.com/ for details). (4 screws)

2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)

3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.

4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.

DAMN I'M GOOD!

Laptop Won't startup Vostro 1500


See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:

1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.

2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.

3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.

According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).

Thank You.
