NEC Versa p8210 Laptop Power Shut down fault


The beeping ounds like overheating, assume you cleaned out the laptop cpu fan and heat sink when you had it apart?
The shorting issue that you refer to, indicates that there is an internal fault in the circuit that carries the DC power to the board. I would dismantle the laptop and try to power it on on an insulated bench, to see if you can spot any arcing as the Adaptor is plugged in. Check the board and look for the inline ceramic fuse, use a multimeter set to the OHMS scale and test the integrity of the fuse to see if it is carrying a current (battery out and unplugged from mains obviously). Then look to see if there are any blown or burned capacitors and resistors on the board or any burned circuit traces.
Also try a different adaptor and check the output voltage of the old one

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .


Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

My acer beeps twice on start up and then shuts down about ten times before it will start


Hi, well firstly let me tell you that these "beeps" which you hear is in fact "codes" that tells us about the status of the PC. There are different types of beeps depending o the BIOS manufacturer such as Phoenix,Award etc

In your case the two beeps is related to RAM memory error. The computer is waiting for user input. Probably you upgraded your RAM recently & the PC is waiting for your input in BIOS & is shutting down automatically. Power on your computer, hold "F2" key to enter BIOS & "Exit saving changes".
Well, dear your problem will surely be solved! Cheer up....
Please send us your valuable feedback & vote so that we know our strength or weaknesses.

Compac laptop nc6000 tries to start up then shuts


For all troubleshooting, make sure the laptop is connected to the DC power cable rather than running off the battery.
are you getting any beeps? if not, it's probably bad system board or cpu. if you are getting beeps, then that beep code will usually give a clue as to the failing hardware.

Blank screen, not boot screen.


Not all of this applies to you but the links for the beep codes may well be of use to you.

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes Pc

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

When powering up I get 2 short beeps and one long one.


The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
