Possibly this could be a lid switch issue, check you lid switch settings in power manager.

Dell Studio 1737 --power button is broken. Is there another way to power it on?

friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...

first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck )
in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..

ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)

1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press
2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time.
3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly.
it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button

then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :)
thanks :)

Can I run my 1275 w/o the battery and use just a/c power

Hello, the short answer is YES you can. I am not sure why are you trying to do this but just remember while running laptop just AC power your are running the rick where if you accidently move the laptop and power connector coming lose from laptop will cause instant power off. This can cause you lose data you might be working on. This can also cause OS corupption.
So my recommendation is to do this if absolutely nessasary and be sure thatpower cable doesn't get pulled or moved.

I hope this helps,

Kind regards,

I am unable to unhibernate

Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation can always just have the computer is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Compaq Presario F700 Laptop power up issue

Remove your cpu/gpu heatsink, apply a ermal bonding, this will prevent shut off because of cpu/gpu overheating(chipset detects temperature faulty in the firsts seconds of operating your laptop), if this didnt resolve your problem, naybe and issue with your Mobo.

Compaq Presario CQ50 Labtop, makes awful constant beeps

If you shut it down when WinFlash was running, then bad news - BIOS corrupted. This means faulty motherboard. Solution - replace motherboard.

Turning off computer

I have a Compaq 1275 with the same problem. You can actually turn it off without removing the battery by holding the on/off button for more than 4 seconds. This actually works for any computers (it is like a reset button). Hope it helps.
