It sounds like it's possibly over heating but as you say it's only turning on for afew seconds it could be hardware related, what lights show up when you turn it on ? i would if you have the knowledge to take the back off and clean out the fan or fans as laptops will get hot pretty dam quickly anyways and a blocked or non functional fan will cause the laptop to turn off. it could also be a faulty battery, i've had one laptop from a customre in the past where by unless the battery was taken out or replaced with a new battery it would not stay on also, so try it without the battery installed with the power lead plugged in and let me know what happends. but dont forget the check the fans for blockage or dust and things.

Dell Inspiron going to hibernate when its not set on hibernate


The hibernate mode is one of microsoft's worst idea because it often corruped window files forcing the user to reload windows from scratch. When you were in power options did you also turn off standby? and set it to never on the list.

Describe your HP Pavilion dv6000z 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC (AMD Turion 64 X2 Duo Core TL-50 1.60GHz, 1GB RAM, 100G... (d6000z) PC Notebook Problem SCREEN WONT TURN ON LED LIGHTS OF POWER BUTTON...


The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

A repair / reflow services on ebay

This repair tech only does amd processor models, Not intel.

Hope this helps.

Laptop won't switch on


Your laptop went to sleep mode and could not wake up. Press and hold the power button for about 10-15 seconds. It will turn off and you should have no lights at all unless you have the AC connected.

Turn it on back again and it should be fine.

Check your power options under control panel and see the options for sleep or hibernate and disable it so that it wont happen again.

Hope this helps.

How do you switch off you laptop? Try this press and hold on the power button for about 5 seconds. So it won't boot to windows? When you turn on the laptop and you see the dell logo keep tapping on F8 then try booting in safe mode, if fails do F8 again then last known good configuration, if fails do F8 then startup repair, if fails do F8 then system restore, if all fails reinstall os. but before all these steps try to test hdd first. make sure laptop is off. press and hold on the Fn key then press power button. Run the PSA test and once it finish it will show you some errors code like 0142 -0146 means hdd needs to be replaced.

I have a Philips 19" Lcd When i swithced it on everything was fine until about 5 seconds later the screen went black. I have found that if i switch the monitor off and then on it works ok until...


A 19" Philips LCD prefers a setting of 1440X900 if you are too far off this it will turn itself off.
Right click on the desktop, go to settings and set it to 1440X900 and then go to advanced and make sure the refresh rate is set to 60 Hertz. Shining a flashlight on the screen will help you see.

There other thing that might be causing this is the setting on the monitor itself. Press the Menu button on the LCD and adjust the brightness and contrast.

If all else fails, contact Philips. This is a premium brand and it comes witha 4 year warranty.
