What would be the probable cause of a sony vaio fs830/w of starting up & the 3 green leds on top stayed lit

You were FORMATTING it? Meaning... you were erasing the operating system? If that's the case, then... you have no operating system and the computer cannot boot up because it has no operating system to boot into.

My desktop suddenly suspended, switched it off by pressing the power button. Now it does not boot, the screen stays dark, though power lights on the PC and keyboard are on. What should I do?

You are the owner of a desktop PC that has developed a sudden and catastrophic hardware
fault - probably on the motherboard (since even the ROM BIOS doesn't give evidence of its
existence), but possibly in the power supply.

Desktop PC power supplies are (relatively) easily replaceable, so if you have as many spare
power supplies lying around as I do, try replacing that first - if that doesn't fix the system, then
the problem is on the motherboard.

Since your power supply is alive enough to light the power LEDs on the system unit tower and
also the keyboard, the problem is probably on the motherboard - look at it - there may be an obviously burned visible component - but there usually is no visible sign of the fatal failure.

The reason I do not suspect your HDD (hard disk drive) has crashed is that ROM BIOS
executes at (power start) boot time right out of motherboard-mounted ROM, independent of
whether or not the HDD is functional - and since not even the BIOS message appears on your monitor, I therefore know that the boot sequence has been interrupted long before the computer becomes intelligent enough to find and access a disk drive, and then command it to try to find a
boot sector.

How to fix the computer: isolate the boot problem to the motherboard. Replace motherboard.

I have an Intel E210882 mother board. Within a week, it was starting to become hard to boot, then I had to boot in F8 mode, and now when I turn on the power switch, the LEDs light turn on and the cpu fan...

If you have another computer that will hook up to the internet, download a copy of any live Linux CD (UBUNTU) and see if the computer will boot with that (you download a image file that burns to a boot able cd). If it will boot with a live CD, then you have a Hard drive / operating system problem. If it will not boot from that, you have a mother board problem. Start removing things from the motherboard, unplug and remove everything then plug hook up things one at a time.

Hi a philips x51 laptop help - almost dead apart from a few leds

Are you on battery mode?
If you are in battery mode, remove your laptop battery, plug in the adaptor to the laptop (without the battery) and plug to the power outlet. Turn on your laptop.

Will not boot up, stops at black screen white centered cursor

You can check the diagnostic LEDs with this information:
If you are getting 123 LEDs and a green/blue power LED the issue is most likely the hard disk drive, boot to the resource CD and run diags on the HDD

My hp dv9000 will not boot. when power is turned on all leds light up screen stays black. hard drive and fan can not be heard. restarts after 10 seconds with no error message or flashing lights.

Remove the hdd cover from the bottom and make sure it is completely seated and connected. If the hdd is properly installed and it still will not boot, try entering the CMOS Setup. If you can enter setup you most likely have a bad hdd. If you can't you need to take or send the pc to a repair shop.
