Sounds like you may have an intermittent memory problem try a diagnostic cd like ultimate boot cd other possibilities are bad power supply or motherboard issue.but since you didn't say sometimes when you hit the button nothing happens.i will guess it's not power supply.eliminate.memory cpu hardrive issues first then we'll go from there.

HP Dv5t laptop wont switch on


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

My Acer Aspire 1500 laptop wont pass startup.


It seems that your laptop hardware is good and it seems that it is a software issue.

  1. Boot in safe mode: When your laptop start, press the F8 key. then it will ask you which boot device to boot from, browse using the arrow keys and chose something with HDD and press ENTER and then press the F8 key again. Then you will be given a boot option and choose SAFE MODE.
  2. While in SAFE MODE, try to uninstall your newly installed software that might be causing the laptop to hung up.
  3. Also, click Start => Run then type: msconfig.
  4. Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck the many programs that looks not necessary to load while windows is loading. The program like Yahoo Messenger, Skype can be opened manually so uncheck them if present.
  5. Click Apply then OK.
  6. Restart your laptop and see if it helps.

Gateway t 1625 laptop not booting


If u can, try to reformat it, reason i say this simple solution is because u already had the laptop looked at professionally, and due to you're laptop being stuck at the windows screen, i see this happen on HDD swaps a lot. The HDD needs to be repair-formatted or fully reformatted to talk to the new mobo when switched out, try this if all else fails, i personally think giving this simple solution may fix the boot up issue, but do make sure ur friend who looked at your laptop hadn't reset ur C MOS and may of not reconfigured it, this may also be the main cause of boot up troubles so make sure everything looks fine in ur BIOS. Gabriel will have a more proper solution than this but i believe by doing this it may help u bypass ur loading issue

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

Toshiba Satellite M35x-S1142 Turn off problem


Was something new installed. It's failing during the driver load. You can quick fix it, maybe, by booting and pressing the F8 key, then selecting Last Good Configuration (words of that effect). If that does not work, boot with F8 and trace each driver as it loads. The one it stops on is the one you want to deal with. Boot in Safe Mode again and try to fix the problem. Do you have anything showing up under the Question Mark in device drivers? You may need to deal with the problem on that level also. Cheers.
