Could be overheating due to dust.  You could also try plugging in an external monitor to determine if it is a connection issue with the screen.

My Acer Chromebook 13 will not power on or charge so can anyone help me with my problem?


try this: remove battery, remove power cable, push and hold down the power button for 1 m (over 60s) do not short time. release the button, insert the power cable. wait 10s then push and hold power button till you see any lite flash release and see if you boot.
some time the static is built and that causes failure to start.
above should clean any static and allow reset of power adapter to function. if yes,. then once you shut down . insert the batter and ;et it charge for 3 mins.. then try to start.

My del studio laptop doesn't shut down


You could have a corruption in the script or a process that won't stop. Try holding down on the power button until the screen goes dark and all lights go out. That is a hard shut down without saving settings. After it shuts down (finally) power it back up. Hit the F8 key on your keyboard the moment your machine goes to the black screen before it can load windows. That is the safe mode. Move the highlight up to safe mode or safe mode with networking and allow it to continue to boot up. Then, when it's completed the process and windows displays that it is in safe mode, do a normal restart. That should resolve the issue.

Power button not working


You didn't say Windows what? makes a big difference you gotta know. Have you tried a safe mode start up by tapping F8 a few times key right after Bios screen blanks & before Win. screen appears. Once in the boot menu choose safe mode. Let it boot then try decreasing the video settings & restart. if that"s not the fix restart in SM & uninstall video driver. It should reinstall a working driver on next start up.

Restart


Restart the computer and hold down the f11 key till you hear a bell.

This will activate the system restore program.

Select restore to factory settings/ default.

That should help you out.

Cheers.

My computer restarts continuously


From another computer, download Glary Utilities and save the installation on a flash drive. Boot your system into safe mode by pressing F8 before you see the Windows Starting screen (while still seeing black), use arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode". Once it's booted into Safe Mode, install Glary Utilities and do the one button fix. That may solve the problem. I suspect you have a virus. Alternatively, once in Safe Mode, do a system restore (Clicking: Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore), and pick a date to restore to the is before the date the problem appeared. Get a good AV program like AVG (free.grisoft.com)

Black screen


To turn it off hold the power button down until it overrides the system and shuts down, it may take a few seconds. If this doesn't work, then remove the battery, then unplug it. Restart the machine and if it's still not working properly get back to me and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction.

HP Pavilion Dv6000 with Vista screen goes blank


Sounds like a software issue with the power settings for the screen. Go into the display properties, open the tab that reads screen saver, click on the power button. Adjust the screen setting to never. This should take care of your problem, if it doesn't then it may be a loose connection on or around the screen. CHeck the connections.

Screen went black


When you close the lid, there is a small pin that engages the case and flips a switch to tell the laptop the case has been closed. The monitor will ALWAYS turn off then, because otherwise, the heat build up would burn the screen! Do not try to defeat this, replacing an LCD screen is usually more expensive than the value of the laptop!

Now, that all being said (and please remember), the situation you have now is (hopefully) just that the laptop tried/succeeded in going into ACPI "suspend" or "hibernate" mode.

1. Remove all cables and 10/100. Remove all USB devices. Just leave the PSU (AC power supply) connected.

2. Press the power button firmly, JUST once. Wait. And I mean WAIT, because some laptops can take 2 minutes or more to come out of suspend/hibernate, if they were very busy at the time it was shut down.

3. If the LCD screen lights up. you are done. But if it does not light up now, then proceed to step 4.

4. Press and HOLD the power button down for 10 seconds. This forces the laptop to shut down completely, even from suspend/hibernation. Some unsaved files may be lost, but tghe laptop goes cold, so you can start ACPI over again.

5. After a few minutes, press the power button again, firmly, just ONCE and for 1 second max. Laptop should start up OK.

6. Once it starts up, go to START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS and search for the "hibernation" tab. Turn hibernation OFF. your laptop obviously has some problems or lack of responsiveness with hibernation (most do). Use suspend, instead. It is much safer,. faster, and still does a good job of saving HDD and LCD wear. Please let me know how this goes for you, there are other more detailed problems that may be involved here, but I suspect this is most likely.
