Sounds like it might be a thermal problem: it works when warm but not at room temperature. Suggestion: While off, put in in a warm place (not too hot, just on the order of what it feels like after it has been running for a while), then turn it on. See if it starts working any sooner when it is already warm. Or, conversely, see how long it takes to stop working after it has been on for a while (turn it on and back off periodically to check), then get it warm and stick in the refrigerator (to cool off faster) and check periodically to see if it stops working sooner. There are some other things, like electrolytic capactors in the power supply that might "deform" excessively quickly when they are not energized, too.

Can you hook the laptop up to an external monitor to see if you get video...otherwise we'll have to try some other stuff that requires a bit more time.

Hi Guys,

I had this issue and after checking the BIOS and various other tests in safe mode, solved it by following these simple steps.

Go to "Ease of Access centre"

Choose "Make the mouse easier to use"

Uncheck "Turn on mouse keys"

Choose Apply and ok.

Worked for me, might work for you.

Hey guys i had the same problem with my toshiba laptop where i couldn't get it to stop inputting the red keys. i fooled around with my keys a little and found out if you press ctrl+shift either once or twice, it will revert back to the normal keys. At least it worked for me, best of luck to you guys.

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

On your post, pls try:
  • click on Start, Control Panel, Network Connections;
  • right click on Local Area Connection;
  • click on Properties;
  • click on Configure Button;
  • click on Advanced tab;
  • highlight Connection Type, in the Value box, select Auto-Negotiation;
  • you may be asked to reboot.
You could also try the 100 Base Tx Full Duplex or the 100 Base Tx Half Duplex.

It would seem that the orange led indicates a 100mbps connection while the green is for 10mbps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
