    Keep an eye on the battery indicator while working with it to see if it is running on battery when plugged in, if this is the case then something is wrong with the power supply, and/or connection from the power supply. If the battery indicator shows charging all the way up to shutdown, then it could be something else like overheating.

    Do you keep it on a surface with plenty of ventilation space underneath? Using a cooling pad? Not on a couch or bed? Check the heat of the unit, does it seem like it is getting real hot.

    Does the power supply look like it is charging the battery while lugged in or is it draining the battery while plugged in still?

New Computer Shuts Itself Down

Call DELL support. Doesn't sound normal. There is Standby and Hibernate modes; neither of which would require you to unplug and plug-in the power cord in order to start the machine.

Dell support will have you run the Dell diagnostic at startup which will detect hardware problems. Or you could run it without calling...

Unplug power and remove battery
Press and hold power button 20 seconds
Replace battery, plug power cord in
Hold down the "Fn" key (to left of space bar)
Turn power button on while still holding Fn key
When diagnostics begins, let go of Fun key
Note any errors; let Dell know your findings

My laptop keeps saying hibernating and i cannot get to menu screen.

Definition: Hibernate is another option for powering down your laptop. When you use Hibernate all data will be saved to the hard drive in a compressed form. Once you start up from Hibernate mode you will be able to work with the applications and documents you left open before putting the laptop into Hibernate.
Hibernate is best used to conserve laptop battery power when you will be away from the laptop for more than a few minutes. You can put your laptop into Hibernate overnight or when you will be away from it for a few hours. Examples: Rather than shutting down my laptop each night, I use Hibernate to help conserve battery power and enable me to access my open files quicker in the morning.

If you are not going to use your computer for a few hours, it is a good idea to put it to sleep (also known as mode) to save power. If you are not going to use the computer for more than a day, it is usually best to turn it off.

hope it helps.... please rate if you like my post...thanks

Hi I closed my laptop to put into hibernation mode and then noticed 2 days later that the power light was stuck on and not in hibernation. Upon opening the screen back up nothing happened. No lights, no...

You can try this: Shut the computer down and unplug the power cord from the computer. Remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and sing happy birthday to it. Or wait 15 seconds. Then plug the power cord back and try turning the system on. After it boots up, providing this fixes the problem, you may then replace the battery.

Hope this helps!

I was using a hdmi cord to connect my laptop to my tv, and now all of a sudden my tv is getting no signal

Check the screen saver time out setting on your laptop.
Set the time setting that fits you.
Example: 3 hours for a typical long movie interval or no screen save.
Also,check the key sequence for toggle VGA and HDMI
After hibernate mode (check power saver setting page on Windows),the system will default back to built-in laptop display.
To prevent this from happening,set system to performance mode and do not hibernate.

My Acer One Aspire is stuck in hibernate. After it updated itself and said it was preparing to shut down, it was stuck in the preparing for shut down mode for hours. When I let the battery run down to turn...

This solution may sound stupid, but it is affective. Try to press really long time (about 1-2 minutes) on the power button of the laptop. wait for it to shut down completely. Then turn it on to see what happens.

What may have caused this is an update of any sort.

I am unable to unhibernate

Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation can always just have the computer is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Laptop Doesn't Turn On At All

To take out of hibernation,press the power button for less than 1 second.
Then go into the control panel and disable hibernation as described below.

Disable the your mouse's "ability to wake up computer" in device manager.
Use keyboard to wake up your computer.

Click Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options > Hibernate tab.
Then clear the Enable Hibernation check box.

If this doesn't resolve the issue,Please post back.

Can't get out of hibernation

I recommend you to do it the nasty way, unplug the power cord, and detach the battery.
Also, you may need to update windows, because this will happen again and again, there is something wrong in your windows and I can not say what it is with out working on the computer.
