Red light and warning message

Gateway laptop computer, small red light I have never seen before started staying on after shutdown. Sometimes a message on a black screen pops up at startup that says, ''warning turn off computer and check cooling fan.'' Have had no problems with this computer, can't get gateway to help, referred me to MPC which is no longer in service.

The "on" light on the front of my sony Vaio laptop continually flashes red when laptop is turned off


My question is the laptop turned all the way off when you go to shutdown do you click shutdown? Because it may show this light if the laptop is not turned all the way off. Also does it only do this when its plunged in? Some time there is a light to indicate the laptop is charging.

cheers best of luck

Red warning light staying on


That can be a small problem like a loose wire or a sensor that is out.. sometimes if a warning bulb is out on dash it will send a signal to the engine light to illuminate.. if its blinking that isa major problem.. sometimes even getting oil changed or leaving a gas cap open or broken can cause the llightto go off. Is there any symptoms associated with the blinking light?

Mini cooper red elevated car warning light


That just means you're due for service. There's a counter in your on board computer that times out on things like brake fluid, coolant, inspection, air filter, spark plugs etc.. when one of those reaches zero, the car gives that signal to tell you to go in for service. Those must be reset with an external scanner. they can't be done by the driver.

My Gateway P-7805U Laptop will not stay turned off. Every time I do a shutdown the computer turns itself back on within 10-15 minutes.


All laptop has a small push switch near the hinges between the LCD to the base.

Make sure this switch is operating smoothly.

A malfunction or loose switch will not trigger the correct condition to the laptop.

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

My gateway computer will not stay on.


This could be difficult to trouble shoot without more information. The best place to start is go into Administrative tools.
1. Click Start and select Control Panel.
2. Select Administrative Tools and open the Event View.
3. Click on System and look for any Errors with a red circle with an X.
4. Double click on the red circle to view the error and it will identify what the error was.
5. There is a link which will give more detailed information on the error.
6. Also check Application and the other logs.
This is a good place to start, but I have seen Memory Modules cause this problem which you can download a free program like memtest86 to perform a better memory test than your BIOS can do.

After shutdown of gateway laptop blue power button stays lit.....


Hi this sounds like your computer is in hibernation mode as opposed to shut down mode. Could you check and see as if running Vista many people assume that clicking on the brown power type selection under start that they are shutting down where as this actually only hibernation mode and clicking on the little arrow to the right of this and selecting shutdown is the way to go.
I hope this helps

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
