What blue light? Where is it?
Won't charge? The battery? So you must mean it was getting a low battery when you had it turned on and plugged in? If so, please check your power connections, and if all is hooked up and it still won't turn on, it could be any of a hundred things causing it, but you should check the battery at a place near you, even take the pc and power cord with you to a store that sells the batteries, and ask if they'll check it with a new battery with the power cord plugged in. New batteries often have no charge yet, so that may not help. And you can't run a laptop with just the power cord, it must have a battery also. Bear in mind, it may not be the battery at all. There are many things it could be. As I've told 2 others today-
We need more info about what happened that could have caused it, ok? Til then, here's a lil thing I just answered with someone else.
"ALWAYS try all the easy simple solutions 1st before you get into any complex ones! Then if simple solutions don't work, try others, but I'd sure avoid opening my laptop and monkeying around with stuff inside!
Usually the reset routine (unplugging the power cord and take out battery for a minute) works, or try unplug/battery out/ hold power button down for 2 minutes, hook all back up again.
BUT there are so many problems that can cause this same issue. It can be caused by a dead battery, bad power cord or connection, or liquid getting into the pc, or a new ap that is causing it. ETC. Mine even once had a problem that somehow "pages" in my system folder were locked, though I didn't lock them, but it kept my pc off til Windows found it's own solution online somehow. Just recently I installed a new ap that made my startup ap keep trying to keep it from running, and it kept insisting, so it took about 4 minutes before pc came on finally, and I then uninstalled that ap fast. As you can see, so many things can make it happen. Be careful what you do to attempt to fix it! If possible, always tell us exactly what you did before that happened. One thing you can try if it happens to you is- do the unplug/remove battery a minute, put both back in/on, and then when you start it up, BEFORE it starts loading Windows, press F8 over and over til SAFE mode option comes on, pick safe mode, and go find in your system the Control Panel, then "Recovery", then "System Restore". That can take your PC back in time to a day or 3 before present and you lose no data. Pick a time very close to the last time you used the pc, and run that. Often that fixes any problem within the pc itself. Try again with a different time TO GO BACK TO, before giving that up. I'd never try other things 1st, til I tried these simple things.
If that doesn't work for you, come back, and give us details about what happened, please. That makes a big difference when trying to help you. :)

If you got liquid in it, DO NOT run pc for a couple weeks, and let it dry completely before you try to run it again.

If it could be the battery, DO NOT go buy another one without being sure that's really the problem. Take your pc and old battery to a place that can check it for you, like a battery store. Don't just follow advice to open the pc and work on it!! If you're not an expert, you can ruin your pc.

I have a Phillips dcm5090/10 sound tower when I switch the power on at the plug the unit wont switch on. I know power is getting to the unit because the blue light above the cd unit flashes. I have missed...

I have exactly the same problem. One morning a couple of days ago the DCM5090 simply wasn't possible to turn on. The blue lamp at the from shines - indicating that there is nothing wrong with the power supply - but pressing the ON-button has no effect. The display is unlit. Also the charging of an iPad I usually have connected on top no longer works.

Any thoughts? Broken fuse?

How do you change brightness on screen on emachines notepads

Look for the "Fn" key at the lower left of the keyboard. Hold this down and look at the "F" or function keys at the top of the keyboard, look for the symbol that looks like the sun or light shining, there may be one key that simply toggles through the settings or there may be two keys, one for brightness and then another for dimming. Most functions will be printed in blue on a notebook keyboard, so also look at the arrow keys to the right, there maybe brightness indicators on the up arrow as well as the down arrow. When ever you want to perform a certain function with these keys, you have to hold down the "Fn" key while pressing the function key.

Problem with emachine m5124 startup

Take the battery out and unplug the power cord. Press down the power button continuously for a solid 30 seconds without stopping. This drains all the power out of the circuits and resets whatever invalid state your computer is in.

Now, leave the battery out but plug in the AC and turn on the laptop. If it works, turn it off again and insert the battery. All should be well.

E-machine 5220 power up

Emachines have notoriously cheap power supplies. Often, while the power supply itself doesn't fail, it causes the failure of motherboard components, essentially trashing the computer.

Try the following:

First check and make absolutely certain that the power switch connector is properly connected to the motherboard. (Take standard grounding/safety precautions: wear a properly-grounded grounding strap, for example, when working with any internal components.)

Obtain a known-good power supply of equal or greater capacity to your eMachines PS and switch 'em out. 

If either of these fixes your problem, well and good. If not, the problem may be, as is all too common with eMachines power issues, a motherboard issue caused by the power supply.

Blue light is not working

What is this?? Is the drive internal, or by the blue light I assume you mean it is external. Is the blue light really all that nessesary? If you need it to shine (and I assume you just WANT it to shine 'cause it's PRETTY) then try installing any software that came with it, and by the way, what brand is this?
