Check power adapter. If that is active, then damage to the mainboard may have occurred. Circuit boards are very sensitive to pressure, excessive power surge, heat, dropping the unit, and water damage. If the computer lights up and tries to start up but it can't boot, the hard drive is defective or needs the operating system replaced.

My laptop have no power

Not a lot of info here, but I'll do my best. Try booting it when you have it plugged into the power adapter. If it will boot up that way but not boot after you think you've charged the battery sufficiently, the problem lies in your battery, and you'll need to purchase a new one. If it won't boot even when connected to the adapter, you have a much more serious problem which could range from the power connection being worn and not recognizing that the adapter is inserted to a hard drive malfunction (which I doubt because I would think you'd at least get some type of screen that comes up before the laptop boots) to motherboard issues due to the laptop getting dropped or immersed in water, etc. In any of these cases you'll need to take it to a local repair shop to have them analyze it, but be prepared to lose all of your data depending on the situation.

Linksys E2000 keeps disconnecting

Disconnect the power from the linksys for about 30 seconds then plug it back and see if it stops dropping. Most times the dropping occurs if you turn the modem and router off at night then when you turn them back on the router boots up faster than the modem and that will cause it to drop. Power outages also will cause the problem if the router boots up before the modem.

If unplugging the router and waiting 30 seconds does not solve it then unplug both the modem and the router. Then plug the modem back in and let it boot up for a minute or two, then plug the router in and let it boot up.

Laptop turns on then freezes

Shut it off, pull the battery out. Unplug all devices that you might have plugged into the laptop (anything USB, cards, etc).
With the battery OUT, and the power cord unplugged, hold down the power-on button for about 20-30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and/or power cord and then boot the machine into safe mode (hit "f8" white booting on windows operating systems to get into the safe mode menu). Try booting safe mode NO networking (top choice). Still locks up?
Possible issues are
1) Bad or failing HD
2) Failing RAM
3) Virus or drive issues.

Booting into safe mode should allow you to run a virus scan, then clean and defrag the HD and check for resource conflicts or "flags" for issues (control panel, administrative tools, browse until you find "Event Viewer" and click each icon in the drop down field on the left and read the "errors" in red on the right).

We'll need your OS and laptop model number as well as things like wireless devices or anything custom you've done or have installed.

I dropped my panasonic tough book C-484HHUEM when working on it

the hard drive is located under the keyboard in toughbooks
note its for CF47 but they are similar
As for not booting fully that could be a number of things, maybe you have tried have power so a reset might not help but still try it, remove battery and ac power hold power button down for 40 seconds. Try running also just on ac and then just on battery. Have you tried to run the machine in safe mode pressing F8 on boot. Even though it could be corrupt data or damaged HD worth trying the simple stuff.
hope helps a bit, get back to me if i can help at all

Hi there.
The machine has probably suffered shock damage, remove the battery and leave if off with no power connected for a few hours, then try to boot the machine on AC power only.

Good luck and please post back with the results
