If your laptop won't turn on, you could have any number of problems. The problem might be a genuine power issue derived from either battery failure or simply a loose AC adapter. Conversely, it may only appear to be a power failure, and the problem may lie with another component. Errors in brightness settings and LCD display malfunctions can both make a laptop appear to be powered off, and all these problems will need to be corrected. Look at the battery indicator light on your computer. Is it on? If so, check your brightness settings. If your laptop appears that it is not on, it may in actuality have lowered brightness settings. If the brightness setting is at its lowest setting, the laptop screen will be completely dark, and the laptop will appear to be powered off, even though it is not. Try cranking up the brightness settings. Check your AC power adapter. Is it snugly plugged into the wall or surge protector? Make sure the connection is made and it is not loose. Also, try connecting the power adapter into a different wall outlet. Check the status of your laptop battery by considering how long you have had the same battery. Most modern batteries are only good for about 1,000 full charges. After that point, the battery can and eventually will greatly deteriorate. Replace your battery if necessary. Replace your battery by powering off your laptop and then flipping it over and locating the battery cover outline, which will be near the bottom back of your laptop. Remove any screws with a Phillips screwdriver and pop off the battery cover. Slide out the old battery. Put in the new battery by sliding it in until it clicks, and then replace the cover. Consider replacing your laptop monitor. Your laptop may power on, but if the monitor display does not work, it will appear to be off and you will not be able to operate the machine. Check to see if your current LCD display works by plugging your laptop up to an external monitor using a VGA cable. If the external monitor displays your computer contents, your computer motherboard and underlying systems are still working, but your display will need to be replaced. Replace an LCD display by removing the screws around the bezel of your current display with a Phillips screwdriver. Pop off the bezel carefully and remove it. Then, locate the screws on the two metal brackets beneath the bezel and on either side of the display, and remove these too. Disconnect the inverter cable, which is plugged into the inverter. The inverter is located just beneath the display, at the bottom-center of the laptop. Then, pull back and slide out the old display, and replace it with the new. Put the metal bracket screws back in place, reconnect the inverter cable, and then pop the bezel in place. Replace the bezel screws. Hope this helps.

2000 chevy impala fan doesnt stay on when i start the car


I assume you mean the cooling fan on the radiator?? The fan should only be on when the motor has reached temperature. Perhaps the fan starts automatically and then if the temp isn't hot enough , it turns off., When the motor gets warmer, it should restart.

Why would the fan either not work at all ? or work just a little bit on the high, med, and low settings


You could have a bad fan start capictor. You can try to give the fan a slight push in either direction when it doesn't start, and if it does start then it is either the fan start capicitor or the start winding in the fan moter itself. If it is the fan capictior then it is easy to replace however if it is the motor start winding (open) then the motor will either have to be rewound or replaced.

I have repaired many fan start problems in the past and it is most probably the fan start capicitor.

Good luck,

Marty

Radiators fan doesn't start


What do you mean by it doesn't start?

If you mean it doesn't start whenever I start the engine, then that is OK because the fan does not engage until the engine gets to a certain temperature.

If you mean it never starts and you're overheating, then I would check the fuse for the fan or else the motor might be fried on the cooling fan and needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

Evaporator fan did not start running when condenser fan started.


I don't know why there would be much of a delay between the condenser and evaporator fans coming on. If you have diagnosed it as a bad motor, that's probably correct.

But the motor could just need cleaning and lubricating

Goodman A/C model ch42-1 cooling fan not working


These motors start with the capacitor,that could be the problem in most of the cases ,but sometimes even if the capacitor is new they don't start or after a while they stop by overload.First try replacing the capacitor(no more than $10) and keep an eye on it beacause if this fan at the condensing unit doesn't work it could damage the compresor.

Fan does not start


Generally it is the capacitor that is the cause. There is no starting relay for the fan motor.
