Re: dead loptap

How suddenly? like everything was fine then wont go on now? or things were acting strange then - dead? their can be two to three things that have happened, dead battery (flat or split!) blown fuse in the AC TO DC stepdown on the mains power cable. (the box with the little light on the power cable.) or component falure. this will only likley happen if you drop it while its on or similar tho. unless its new? my first idea would be to see if its stil under warrentee then look at a repair quote i would do a job like this for $270 if its a component fail or $150 if its a power systems fail! so dont get ripped of :) ask which one first. good luck!

Lonovo 3000 n100 shuts down suddenly after starting

Remove the harddrive and try turning it on. If that didn't work than try the memory and if that didn't work than your motherboard is dead. You can either buy a new laptop or get a new motherboard (it will be more cost effective to get a new computer). You can have your data move from the harddrive of your old computer to the new one if you go this route.

My laptop wont show any icons on the desktop and it wont do anything but show my background and mouse.

Hello, If your laptop shows something on your desktop before and suddenly it just stop showing things then right click on your desktop,under VIEW, click on SHOW DESKTOP ICON. If this does not work then your laptop has been infected with Virus.You need to get a good anti-virus to remove the virus or format your system. Regards

Laptop dead

Being a lap top, remove the battery. You should be able to rum direct power. If you still can't start it, you have a bad capacitor or zenor diode on the motherboard and I would lean to the capacitors. If it's not the battery it isn't something most users can fix. It takes a hot air workstation and special tools to remove solder so you don't damage the board. A service center might be able to do the repair but most likely they will want to replace the motherboard if that is the fault and after paying for that you might as well have bought a new machine.

Connect an external monitor (CRT or LCD) to the laptop's "VGA-out" port. Then, turn your laptop on. Does it show the usual "start-up" screen, on the external monitor? If so, then either your laptop's screen is totally-dead, or the "LCD-inverter" (a $20 part that takes $50 for a technician to replace) needs replacement.

Or, does your laptop have a key-sequence (LCD-screen-only, LCD-and-external, external-only) that needs to be used to select LCD-only mode?

Acer aspire 5610z laptop wont start.

well, first of all check the LED if it lights up when you plug the AC cord, if it goes on it means you got power. Otherwise, either the power supply or battery is dead. You should check if an OS was pre-installed.
