I won't shut down my laptop

Why is it exactly that you wont shut off your lap top...? I've actually hear that leaving you lap top on constantly is ok for the unit. I myself constantly leave my lap top on all the time and have had no issues with it. Hope this helps Shannon

Hi i have a vostro 1520 dell laptop there is a problem that some strange laptop when just full battery is connected to it won't turn on but when i press 20 to 30 sec the turn on key and...

First 2 of your problems are due to the fact that your laptop enters hibernation (or hybrid sleep in windows 7) and windows cannot restore your last saved state. The 3rd problem indicates you have windows problems (bad/not updated drivers, filesystem corruption, application issues). I would suggest you to reinstall windows.

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.

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.

try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

My Gateway shuts off, I don't think it has to do with the power

You are infected with a virus or something. Try re-installing the OS and see if this eliminates the problem. If it doesn't help then you have something physically defective.

Lap top is beeping, and then shutting off in the booting up sequence, then battery lite is amber

Defective battery, sounds like it won't hold a charge. Try it without any battery installed, see if it boots on AC power. If it does, I'd suggest a new battery. If not, then there might be a problem with the charging/power circuit on the motherboard itself.
Good luck, and please rate this solution if you feel it has helped!!

Amber light on front of laptop flashes.

The Battery indicator LED is to the right of the power LED. Flashing AMBER indicates a fault with the Battery. To resolve, replace the system battery.

Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Won't boot up

Can you give a little more information? Did the Laptop Fall? What Color is the light that blinks? Amber or Green?
So far it Sounds to me that you Power Supply is Dead or Bad and or not charging the Battery....

First Check the battery status light?
Is the Power Supply Light (Lite). you might want to try removing the battery and using only the Power supply!
