Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
After I shut down and then open it and push start I get a snowy screen. I have to pull the power cord and re-attach and then I get the normal screen and cam move on. It has not happened during working on computer... it is just if I set it down and it goes to sleep or at start up.
You have the 'snowy screen' option enabled. If you press the Fn key down, and tap on the S and C key, Santa Claus will dance across the screen............
You gonna' believe that? lol!
You need to diagnose. However the problem is a loose connection of Video Cable.
Loose at motherboard side, or LCD screen side. Could be Video Cable is damaged also. (Stretched/Broken wires)
What is the model number? It's on the bottom of the laptop. I should be able to get you the link to the HMM. (Free) (Hardware Maintenance Manual)
Then if you wish I can step by step guide you, through the diagnostic procedures, and disassembly required to access both connections, of Video Cable.
Also can guide diagnosing through a diagnostic flowchart

Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.
Go to start>run>then type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely.
Try doing this. Hold down "ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick.
You cannot log off, restart, or shut down your Windows XP-based computer This article talks about an issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.
Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you.

My Presario v5000 is doing the same as above. Except, I let it cool for a little while and it turned on. Now it only turns off after a while. I'm not to sure exactly why that is but i could possibly be an over heating automatic shutdown procedure.

basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.
when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?
a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.
try also using an external monitor

try to turn on the laptop without the battery and only the power cord plug in.
if your laptop works with this you need new battery or update bios ( there might be fix for battery monitor)
if not, call service support, might be motherboard issue
let me know an update
