Question about Computers & Internet

My laptop will not turn on.

I used it to watch a DVD 3 days ago and when I was done I shut it down, closed it and put it back in it's case. Then I took it out last night to get online and it would not turn on. I figured it was the battery so I plugged it in and let it charge. The battery charging light did come on. This morning when the light was green and I assumed the battery was fully charged I tried again but it still would not turn on. Nothing happens at all when I push the power button. No fans or lights or hardrive noises. It's like it died in it's sleep. Please help, I only bought this back in Feburary and use it often for college.

    Any suggestions as to how I find out if it's the RAM or the Motherboard? I've only had the laptop for 4 months. It has a limited one year warranty. What do you suggest I do?

Sir only 2 problems are probable.

1 > Your laptop's RAM is faulty now...yeah it happens without any reason and its also cheap to replace it with new RAM.

2 > Your laptop's Mother board is having problems. It may have problem either in any module or in whole chip board. Its usually a costly affair to replace or repair it. And i wish it should now be your problem.

Lenovo unexpected shut down


I suggest you return it to the supplier for an exchange or repair or refund as it would be still under warranty.
If you try to fix it yourself you will void your warranty.

How to open the back


1

Determine the type of case back on the watch. Set the watch face down on a soft surface and look at the back. If it has slots, it is defined as a screw-back case. If it is smooth, it is defined as a snap-back case.
2

To open a screw-back watch, use the metal blade of a standard screwdriver to turn the slots counterclockwise. A case-back wrench, which can be purchased at watch-repair stores, can also be used. Set the metal tips of the wrench into the back's slots and turn it counterclockwise to open.
3

For a snap back case, place the metal blade of a standard screwdriver in the indent between the watch and the case. Gently apply pressure to lift the case up and off of the watch.
4

Close the case back by setting it back onto the watch. For snap-back cases, line up the indent on the side of the watch and press gently on the case back to close. For screw-back cases, use the screwdriver blade or case-back wrench to turn the slots clockwise, thereby closing the case shut.

About a week ago I spilled some water on my ASUS U81A laptop keyboard. Put it upside down, turned it off, and took the battery out immediately. Opened up the keyboard to help it dry. Two days later I...


You should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Every time i turn my laptop on the time and date keep changing and going back nearly 3 years,i have been told it is the CMOS battery is this right?


Hi,

What you have been told is correct. When the real time clock battery (CMOS) runs out then the date and time will revert back to the day the bios was programed, in your case 3 years ago.

You can set the date and time while you are using Windows but each time you power the laptop down it will loose this information.

A quick workaround is not to power the laptop off but put it to sleep instead until you have got a CMOS battery for the laptop.



Regards.

Dvd door keeps opening. Won't load dvd. Won't stay closed.Compaq laptop. Bought at Wal Mart this summer. Problem started a few weeks ago. Aaaaargh.


Check and make sure a disk is not stuck in the disk drive. If a disk is not stuck try closing the door and hold the door close, shut down the computer. Start the computer and hold the the door while the computer reboots. Hope this fixes it. djmax1966@yahoo.com..

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.

DVD+RW DRIVE STOPPED WORKING


Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.

If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.
