Power button won't work

I shut down properly, and later when I went to start it back up, the power button seemed to not work.
I removed keyboard tray, cleaned and inspected and replaced.
Once with battery only, it seemed to get power but not thru to boot cycle
it would go over to the circled z light only (hibernate?) and with or without ac power, it seems not to get power? Green battery light when plugged in
battery should still be good, I get 2 + hrs usually -
I bought a second hand docking station (for the power button) and hoped it would re-route the power instead of through keyboard control - no love
any suggestions out there?

Hook up the ac adapter only and see if you just get power that way. If you do then you know the battery is faulty cause that would cause the power button to act like its shorted out.

If you hook up the ac adapter and the power button still isn't acting quite right then its either going to be a problem with the power control board or the motherboard.

2006 chevy colorado out of the blue will not start. just makes clicking sound. Started it drove out of garage shut it off. Went back out 5 minutes later won't start. Clock even reset.


Sounds like a bad battery. A number of chain auto parts stores will check it and your charging system free. Before that, if your battery has removable caps, check the water level, if it's down, fill to the bottom of the fill rings and charge the battery, if you have a battery hydrometer, all the cells should have about the same charge level, if one or more show a lot lower than the others, battery is probably bad. Hope this helps.

Water damaged Laptop


Attaching an external keyboard does not help because the keyboard controller is damaged.
I recommend you put your money towards a new laptop as the cost of repair maybe too expensive or beyond repair. Most computer repair shop charge for a quote and may drop this charge if you go ahead with the repair.
If the hard disk is OK then I suggest you remove it from the laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer etc.

Pioneer Dv 285 powers down after 15sec


Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps
