Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Screen goes off


On battery the laptop will shut down and dim display to conserve battery, by tapping any key or touchpad it should come to life. That said, Open Control Panel, Power, Advanced Power settings, Change to High Performance, monitor shut down to never on AC , Select/Adjust advanced power settings to your preference.

Power connection light is orange?


Hi,

Three possible work arounds/fixes:
1. Plug the computer into a power strip that has an on/off switch. Turn the power strip on. Press the computer power on button to start as normal, but after after one second turn off the power strip switch just long enough for the fans on the computer to slow down, but the amber computer led doesn't turn off and then turn the power strip switch back on. Computer should start and run fine. Computer typically can be shut down for up to 5 minutes and restarted normally--any longer and you have to sue the power strip power switch routine again.

2. Remove the cmos battery for about one minute and then replace. This fix may last for months but problem will return.

3. If either of the above fixes work and computer starts, press the F2 key (usually, could be F12 on some models) when computer screen first comes on and before Windows starts to load. Select the BIOS setup option and reload the default settings --you will have to change any of the settings that chanhged due to upgrades and changes that you have made to the base computer. Note that the a common default BIOS setting includes a floppy drive check even when the computer doesn't have a floppy drive and this setting has to be changed to 'none' typically. This one is not for the faint of heart!

Remove the battery and leave off for about 1 minute. Put the battery back in place and press the power button to turn the unit on. immediately after you see system light come on, press and hold the power button and see if it shuts off after a few seconds. If not, then its likely your motherboard is defective.

Acer aspire one, won't wake up from sleep mode, screen blank


I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.

My new lenova thinkpad t400 seems to be caught in a loop. I've taken the battery out and ctrl alt delete but still goes back to configuring updates: stage 3 of 3 screen and then says shutting down, but it...


Hello!
This is a tough one. I've seen this recently and had to just press and hold the power button to shut down. Not good!

I'm assuming you're using Windows of some sort since it shows "Stage 3 of 3" when it does updates during shut down.

What has happened is you downloaded some sort of "fix" from Microsoft and it's getting stuck while trying to install. I've had this happen and have never found a good solution for it.

1. Turn you computer off.
2. Turn your computer on
3. As soon as the power comes on, start pressing F8 repeatedly.
4. When you get a black and white menu, use your arrow keys to move up and down, select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press enter.

What the solution I've provided does is revert your computers software to a point in the past, hopefully just before you received the screwy update.

Good luck!

URGENT! My computer doesn't switch on and Ihave a tight schedule.

if the powerled just blinks 1 time it usually indicates that the battery is empty and need to be charged.
