The hard drive was damaged. Inside the drive, the tiny moving head took the hit. They really are not designed to take shocks like that. Many laptop mfgrs offer "industrial" duty laptops that have on-board shock absorption suspension for hard drives.

My Asus X553M laptop is not booting up. Any ideas how to fix this problem?


Temitope, Hard reset. Open computer, remove battery,hold power button down (((1 minute))), reinsert battery, reassemble laptop, push/hold power button a couple seconds.
2nd fix, try to boot laptop without hdd.(hard drive). Remove the hdd, then turn on the laptop.. then it can get into the bios.. reset the bios to the default setting, turn off the laptop, and then turn it on again with hdd reinstalled. This seems to be what works in the forums with this issue found in Asus laptops. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Power cord light is yellow not green


Hello,Yellow means your battery charge is low, and it is being charged.


Green means you have a full battery charge.


So probably it seems your battery is out of juice. Keep it on charges & it should be fine.

If there is nothing changed, you may need to exchange the laptop charger.

I have a toshiba qosmio laptop that stopped working all of a sudden. The problem is it will not start up. What I noticed is that that the power indicator lights on the front that are usually green are...


remove the battery and see if it works fine, use only the power supply. If it works the problem is the battery if not you need to test your power supply. That's the easier way

Remove the main battery, now try power on, if okay the battery needs to be replaced. Sub out ram one at a time to see if you can start it.

My Dell Inspiron B130 won't turn on. The battery light blinks yellow twice then green, but that is the only thing happening.


Hi,
Take the battery off completely and drain the flea power from the laptop by holding down the power button while the battery is off. Hold down the power button for about 15-20 seconds to ensure no power remains on the laptop. Check if your battery has a drain button too. Drain the battery and place it back on the laptop.
Charge it for about 30 minutes before you turn it on. See if it works.
Post here if you need further help.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

Not the power supply!


Hi

To help troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights lites solid green. The power button also lites solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the diagnostic lights as well as the power button helps identifies the problem.

First, disconnect the power cord and remove all connections (Keyboard, Network, Mouse etc) as well as optional PCI Cards. Connect up the power cord (Monitor as well) and try powering the PC.
Check the diagnostic lights/system lights color and sequence and check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
Diagnostic Lights - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147
System Lights - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1114432

Reply with lights color and sequence as well as any beep codes and I will respond at best effort.
