Laptop shut down and wont power up

Unplug, remove battery, check for dust in fans and vents, plug in, try to reboot. If it powers up, open Control Panel, Power Options Power , set to High Performance, open Advanced Power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other Advanced settings to your preference. Has it been pulled by the cord? If you have a multimeter check for DC volts at the AC jack plug, that plugs into the laptop. Is the Transformer (brick on the cord) getting warm when plug in? Does the battery charge LED light? Try another cord with the EXACT same power specs.

On xbox 360. my gears 3 disc freezes the console. when rebooted it says the disc is unreadable. i'm on my 3rd disc. when i remove the hard drive, i can play gears 3 but cant save . i have played gears...

Delete any saved game files from your x box hard drive.Unplug x box for 5 min.
Plug back in and power up.
Try game again.
Chances are files have become corrupt.Also delete any files from GOW 1 and 2.

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...

the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

Disc tray wont stay shut,just reopens after a couple of seconds.only 14 months old.

Check the faceplate on the front of your drive tray. It might not be on right. I would take it off and try it then to eliminate it as the problem. It's very easy and won't affect your warranty. Hold the power cord and open the tray. As soon as the tray opens, unplug the console. I recommend unplugging the back of the Xbox rather than the outlet. Then gently pull out on the plate and lift up. It should pop right off. Don't force it. Then, with it off, try the drive again. If that doesn't work, it's jammed inside or the button is sticking.

Disc Tray wont stay shut

A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.

Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.

X box 360


Orange means = stand by
Green= its ON
Red= theres a problem (usually power supply overheating)

There could be many reasons as to why your console wont switch on such as broken power switch, faulty / damaged power cord / supply unit, or over heating has damaged the console.

If possible try using teh power cord in another xbox 360 console to eliminate the cable being the problem.

If the problem still exsists all that you can really do from there is send it to the xbox repair center.

You should be able to get it fixed free of charge.

if you have a game or dvd in there you cant get out unplug teh console and remove the face plate. depending on the dvd drive manufacture in your xbox you may / maynot be able to see some small black cogs at teh front of the dvd drive inside the actuall dvd drive unit. spin these with a small techinical screwdriver and the the tray will start to slide out with each spin.

Not very technical or approved but does the job.

hope this helps
