I have a compact evo 1020v and it wont boot up.When I push the power button the power light says its on but the screen stays black and there is no boot up sound. I removed the hard drive in hope that might help but it didnt work. there is still power to the fan. when i boot it up the dvd drive makes some noise. i have tried removing one of the ram chips but that didnt work either i have also tried hooking it up to an external monitor but nothing works.

Try disambling the system. Clean it with a wind blower. Check BIOS battery capacity. Replace if possible. Power on the laptop. Do you hear humming sound from hard disk ? If you hear sssssssshhhhh sound from hard disk; it's OK. Replace RAM with new one. If problem still exists Than change main board. Hope that not happen. Keep informing.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

Wont boot up


try removing all cables connected to your tower, (including power cable, mouse, keyboard, VGA cable, scanner, printer, camera etc.)- then press the power button for at least 5 seconds, this is what we call POWER DRAIN, then try booting up your system again, if still unresolved, power off your tower, then open up your chassis, reseat the cables of your HARD DISK -- try again. if still unsolved, try entering the BIOS, check if the HARD DISK is detected..

I want to put ram in my laptop evo 1020v, but he recognize only 512MB how can I do. thanks you


When you say that it only recognizes 512 MB, I am assuming that this is after you installed the RAM?  - How much did you have before you installed it?  And how much did you install?  
Sometimes it is as simple as making sure that the RAM chip is pushed in far enough.  Make sure the chip is pushed in securely.  Sometimes you will hear a click when it is in far enough. If it is not, the laptop will not recognize it.  
Hope that helps.

MX 6124 Gateway notebook screen stays black when powering up


Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.
