My solution (works every time) is to pull out the AC cord from back of computer. Then .. release the battery for several seconds only. Push battery IN again. THEN (presto) Push power-up button. It starts normally, every time. Then when you're ready just push the AC lead back in after it's started. Don't ask me why it works. It just does. It's like it needs the battery power to be isolated briefly and then re-applied. It works. I never bothered with warranty work. It's like an extra security feature. When it's off AC for a period -> that's the reliable starting method. Also, computer may be in hibernation mode. Hold the power down until you see a boot up screen (i f you can get to it)

My toshiba at200 table 10.1 wont turn on


1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, like the toshiba boot up screen or something like that. Or is it completely blank (black color) always.

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). This is important to confirm.

3. Also, when you press power button, do you see the LED lights on laptop blinking or solid green (which ones are in blinking/solid) and do hear any sound ? Or do you feel that your laptop doesnt even try to boot.

4. Can you hear any Beeps when you try to turn on the computer. If yes, what is the sequence of those beeps.

Continued......
If you answers are -
1.
blank
2.

Reset tablet c


These steps came from the MSI website itself. link

Restore with reset button
1. First turn the powericon1.png off the router and press the "reset" button.
2. Power on the router and hold the reset button until M1 & M2 LED or Status start flashing.
3. Release the reset button. If the LED flashes eight times that means the reset is done but if theLED lighticon1.png flashes twice you need to repeat the steps.
Reset the router while the power is on.
1. Press and hold the reset button for about 5 seconds M1 should flash 5 times, release the reset button and the restore/reset process is done.

Why wont my logitech boombox go into bluetooth search mode


I had the exact same problem. Boombox flashing blue, but not rapidly flashing blue. I did two things that seemed to fix it:

1: Reset the device by switching it on, then holding both volume up and volume down buttons at the same time for 10 seconds. The blue flashing light will briefly flash quicker to confirm.

2: Switch off the boom box

3: Switch on using the power button and (very important) immediately press and hold the Bluetooth button. The Bluetooth button needed pressing and holding almost instantaniously after the power button for it to work for me. I had to try several times to get it to work.

When you do this successfully, the Bluetooth light starts flashing rapidly and it enters search mode.

I nearly threw my speakers away, now it works and connects fine :)
