The easiest solution is to unplug the AC adapter and pull the battery. This will shut off the laptop.
Once it is off let it sit about 10-20 seconds then put the battery back in and plug in the AC adapter.
You should now be able to press the power on button and it should boot up. It may give you a screen saying the last time it shutdown it was not good. Just pick to boot with last known good configuration and you will be fine.

Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

My compaq presario cq60 wont turn on


Does the laptop boot? Sound? Do you see a "ghost Image" in the monitor in a bright light? If so, Could be backlighting, Inverter, on/off switch that shuts the monitor on/off when you open and close the lid. Can you boot to safe mode with networking? If so, Open the Device Manager, Uninstall the Graphics Adapter, reboot, the software will apply a generic driver, If the Graphics adapter has not failed completely.

Grx Bunn coffee brewer will not brew. I've followed all directions carefully. I've waited almost 30 min for it to heat up I've added more water and still nothing. Now I have been waiting for about an hour...


It sounds like the tank isn't full. It takes 2 full decanters of water to fill the tank in the bank. After pouring in 10 cups of water, close the lid and wait 3 min. Then open up the lid and pour in another 10 cups of water and close the lid. Then turn the vacation switch on and wait 15 min. Now you are ready to brew coffee. Place your grounds and filter in the funnel basket and pour in 4-10 cups of cold water and place decanter on warmer plate. Close the lid and in 3 min you will have a pot of coffee. If this doesn't happen, please call 800-352-2866 and we will be happy to assist you.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Laptop screen goes dark.


Is your computer setup to go to sleep when you close the lid?

Click on start -->control panel-->power options and then check the option that says choose what closing the lid does. You have to change this setting to 'do nothing' if you want the computer to stay on when you close the lid.

Signal is not compatible with this input when i connect my laptop


If the screen resolution on your laptop is to high or not supported by the TV, that is the usual error message.  I'm not sure what video output you are using but if it's the common S-video output, high resolutions will not be supported through it so maybe try a lower resolution and work your way up until you get the message again.  Then you will know the threshold.

There is a concealed switch situated just to the right of the right hinge, which is activated by a cam on the screen bezel and acts as a sensor for lid open or closed, it also turns off the backlight, so if it sticks in a closed position, the backlight will not turn on, either free the switch, or disconnect it, it connects to the small power board (under the cover with the power button and 5 funtion buttons) i hope this solves your problem. ..... ****
