Try removing the battery and starting up just on power supply. May be a bad battery. If that doesn't work let me know.

SOURCE: Nothing happens when I press the power button except the light

Regardless if you don'r feel comfortable taking the comouter apart it needs to be taken apart and looked at. Depending on what got spilled inside the sooner the better. If it was a soda of some kind it could be bad.I would take out the battery and not try it again.

SOURCE: When I turn on the laptop sometimes the screen doesn't come up and when it does come up it says F10=ROM Based Setup. When I press F10 nothing happens.

Sounds like the hard disk is not able to boot the laptop.
ROM based setup means you need to reset or reconfigure the BIOS.
Assuming the BIOS battery is OK.
This could be because the hard disk itself died, you can remove the disk and attach it to a USB adapter (cheap to purchase) then connect it to another PC. If you can read the disk OK in another PC then you have a motherboard problem.

My laptop won't start up it turns on but then nothing


Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot.

If it boots, then shutdown, add battery and restart.

The laptop's screen display may remain black when there is a corrupted graphics driver, or a problem with the LCD display's back light. (Try tilting the screen to 30 degrees and see what happens.)

It could possibly be that your outputting to the wrong screen - most laptops have a "Fn" button that can be pressed in conjunction with a little screen on the keyboard to switch to either internal display or external (say F1 or F2).

Hi, first:
try to connect to a VGA Monitor (it has DB15 Connectors(bing or google it) and usually in blue or black colors) and press and hold windows key then press P on your laptop keyboard or (peripheral PC keyboards) tap these shortcut for 2 or 3 times and see what happened, if you see any changes on monitor or see your screen on the VGA monitor your Graphic card is fine so go to the next step if not

Screen will not come on


Try holding the Fn button on your keyboard and press the Display F# key. For my Asus, its Fn+F7

If you're not sure which F# key is the correct one, look for a little icon on the key with a small box with an X in it.

Blank screen will not turn off


You turned on your laptop and horrors upon horrors, the screen is BLACK! You see that the laptop has power but besides that nothing is happening. I want you to know that there is a very good chance you can get out of this situation quickly and without any cost. This fix works on all brands of laptops:


• 1) TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP BATTERY
• 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.
• 3) NOW HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up. Replace your battery.
or

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black. Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel.

Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on.

If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.

If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.

If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.

MY COMPAQ CQ56-129NR when turn on the power light comes on then cap light blinks but no start up screen. Screen stays black what can i do if anything?


Hi,


This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,


1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter


2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds


3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.


4. Check if you will see any difference.


5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.


If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

Keyboard not work


Hello ,

As per what i understand from the issue you stated it has the possible solutions :
1. perform a Power Drain Test to drain out the accumulated static charge from within the notebook (happens with every laptop) - let the laptop be on , remove the power cord , remove the battery directly without directly shutting the laptop. The laptop will shut down once you remove the battery. Then press and hold the power button for the next 50 seconds continuously. Then attach the battery , then the power cord and power on the notebook. Check the keyboard . If no go , then

2. use an external keyboard . Attach the external keyboard to the laptop and boot into the normal OS desktop. Open Device Manager and check if there are any conflicts. Or else directly update/flash the BIOS by clicking on the link below :
www.hp.com

If unable to do so , please mail back giving the Serial Number of the laptop and the Product Number (loacted underneath the laptop on a white label beginning with s/n and p/n respectively ) and i shall send you the exact BIOS update/flash link .

Regards ,
Puloma

Laptop will not respond


It sounds to me that you may have an issue with the keyboard itself, as most BIOS will stop on a keyboard error unless told otherwise. But, this could be a malfunctioning keyboard, or a disconnected keyboard. 1 way to test either is to press the caps lock, num lock or scroll lock keys and verifying the corresponding light turns on and off with the button presses. If they do not respond, it's likely the keyboard has become disconnected internally. Other issues may also cause this to happen, but they are harder to test for. If it does respond, then it's more likely to be a keyboard failure, and a replacement of the keyboard may be required.

Hope this helps!
