Re: no power

If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first action. Performing the hard reset will correct many problems. If the computer still does not start properly, select your symptom from the list below to guide you to the recommended corrective actions.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and SD media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all residual power and restore default startup settings.
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not insert the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a fan or other moving parts turning.
  4. If the computer does not start, the LED lights do not glow, and the display is black, you can perform one or more of the following actions to resolve the no power issue.
    • Verify the computer is receiving power from the AC adapter . Verify that the AC adapter is not damaged and is connected correctly to a working wall outlet plug. Verify AC power is connected to the system board by examining the AC adapter, wiring, and pin connection for damage. The keyboard LEDs will glow when AC power is connected to the system board. Damaged components, like the AC adapter or the pin in the power connector, may require an HP-certified repair.
    • Use a different AC power adapter . If you have access to a different AC adapter or power pack that is designed for the computer, connect it to the notebook and try to start the computer. If you own or have access to more than one notebook, verify that you are using the adapter which belongs to the notebook. CAUTION: Using a power adapter that does not meet the power requirements or has the wrong type of connector may damage the computer. On newer notebook models, connecting the wrong adapter to the notebook may cause the power LED lights to blink but not power the computer.
    • Remove the battery and boot on AC power only . A discharged or defective battery may prevent the AC adapter from supplying enough power to start the computer. To verify that power from the AC adapter is available for PC; remove the battery, connect AC power adapter, and press power button. If available, try using a different AC adapter, that is rated for the PC, and repeat this test.
    • Remove the AC adapter and boot on battery power only . A defective AC adapter may not charge the battery and prevent the computer from booting on battery power only. To verify battery power available for the PC; connect AC power adapter, allow battery to charge for 30 minutes or more, disconnect the power adapter and press power button. If available, try using a fully charged battery, of the same type, from another computer and repeat this test.
      • If LEDS do not glow and the fan or hard drive do not spin, battery may need to be replaced.
      • If tests of both the battery and the AC adapter fail, there may be a problem with system board requiring service by HP.
      • If LEDs glow and PC boots, the AC adapter may need to be replaced.
      • If LEDs glow, but PC does not boot go to LEDs glow, fan is heard, but display is black or blank section.

My Sony VIAO won't even turn on

remove the battery and unplug the power. Hold the power button for 90 sec, do not plug in the battery yet. plug in the power and turn it back on. If the problem persist then it sounds like the motherboard is bad. Either replace the MB or part out the Laptop piece by peice and use the money to buy a new one. You get way more if you part it out then to try and sell it broken.

I turned on my sony pcv 6603 and nothing happened - the screen is blank and there are none of the familiar beeps or flickering lights... does anyone know what might be wrong and is it repairable?


If the ystem is not poweringon, once remove the power cable and then press power button for 30 seconds. It will remove the static charges and any possible issues becasue of this.
If the system's LEDs are also not blinking then issue might be with the power supply.
If power is coming in the system but no display then possible issue is RAM and mainboard.
Every issue described above is easily repairable.

How do I stop my viao locking me out if I dont use

If you are using XP, it's control panel/display/screensaver...set the wait time to whatever you choose.
Then click the 'power' button, and set your 'turn off monitor', 'turn off hard disks', 'system standby', and 'system hibernate' times.
If this helps plz do the testimonial thing.

When powering up just shuts off

you should have let it dry completely before powering it up, eventually the Power supply card(voltage regulator) got wet and stopped working, you need to have it replaced, it's not a battery problem even though the ps card might have damaged the battery a bit.

Sony notebook vgnn325e/w I was using the notebooke when it just shutdown and cannot be power up again. The computer is dead.

Your Mainboard moslty likley went bad and will need replacing. Check all the usuals. Is ther power lights when plugged in? Charge light o Battery?
Remove both of those and wait a while and put back in and try booting.

Remove any removable media like the CD drive. Also try powering on with the power adapter plugged in and the battery removed.
