Re: wont start

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)

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.

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.

Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

Lenovo g550 orange flash 3 times

3 orange flashes means flat battery. If you have a faulty charger or charger socket on the laptop then the battery wont charge or power up with just the charger connected.

3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.
