Hi, the most common cause of this type of problem is the on/off switch on your case. See if you can get a spare one from another computer and plug it onto your board in place of the original one for a test. If this is not the cause then it would be worth checking the power supply, even if there is a LEED light on the motherboard there could still be insufficeint power to boot up. Regretablely the next conclusion is your motherboard. Goodluck with this regards mistyman

My laptop, if i touch the start button, there is a reaction of 10 seconds then all stops, no light no noise

What windows version do you have on the laptop?
What I would test before proceeding would be to unplug the power, take out the battery, plug in the power (not the battery) and see if it could boot up now. If it can, then put back in the battery and proceed as normal.
If it cannot start up, then you need to have the motherboard and/or the harddisk checked.

Step 1: Shut down all PC's on your Network including your printer.
Step 2: Turn the power off on all of your routers for atleast 10 seconds.
Step 3: Turn back on your routers

9 times out of 10 this will correct that problem.

I have a Toshiba NB200 notebook which has suddenly decided not to boot up. The only light that comes on is the power light and just the fan comes on for a few seconds and then stops. Any advice please.

Could be a few things but sounds like the RAM is faulty, replace it and it may boot. If not remove the hard drive and then reinsert and try to boot and if none of these two work then it may be the motherboard in which case you have an expensive paper weight!

I have almost same problem. This problem start one time when I using my computer. Computer always stop after trying restart, sometimes start normally and stop after few second. And now when I start...

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure that your RAM is securely seated

hope this will help

My hp pavilion dv6000 won't boot up. starts for about 10 seconds then stops then tries again

Motherboard is defective & needs to be replaced with a new one.
You can find a replacement motherboard by searching on with the motherboard's model number. This could be found under the RAM.

Power On, Fans start but stop in few seconds and that's all

May be there is a problem in the windows, but suppose it is not booting at all.

First Check once more your boot options from bios menu
Second If it still the same thing, extract your battery out of your laptop for 12 min, then try to power up your laptop pluging in your power cable(don't use your battery)
Third If it still not working, there must be a problem in your cooling fan, so check it, also check your motherboard & your graphics card (Most of this problems happens due to a problem in the computer cooling system in motherboard & graphics card)

Hope it works for you Christos

Screen wont come on

If you don't hear any beeps and your laptop is connected to the charger then most likely the motherboard or vga chipset has failed.
