Hi
i think you must do a whole system restore.

because this thing may be because of some changed bios setting..

and if this dont workout...

just put the bootable OS disk in the CD drive and repair the OS.

select the repair option carefully dont select FORMAT option.

if you find the solution helpful dont forget to rate me carefully..

thnx

Asus Eee PC T101MT won't turn on


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Laptop won't start up


I'm inclined to think that your power cord is bad and you have drained your battery.

I have a Philips Freevents X57 Laptop which has a motherboard problem. When I switch the laptop "ON" these are the following symtoms: A) Power Charger in AC/DC Socket without battery: Power...


Possibilities:
* leaking/bad capacitors on the motherboard, not doing their job, i.e., causing voltage fluctuations that the motherboard cannot tolerate;
* dead disk-drive -- cannot boot Windows from a "dead" drive;
* dead CPU -- cannot do anything other than power on/off;
* failing power-supply -- not supplying correct voltages to the motherboard.

Take the laptop to a qualified computer technician, for professional trouble-shooting, and probably a replacement of the motherboard. But, it might be less expensive to "salvage" the disk-drive (and your files) from the laptop, and to buy a new laptop, than it would be to buy a replacement motherboard, and pay for installation.

MY daughters PHILIPS X57 WILL NOT BOOT UP. IT SWITCHES ON, THE FAN WORKS FOR ABOUT 2 SECONDS, THE HARD DISK LIGHT AND WIFI LIGHT LIGHT-UP FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN NOTHING. NO DISPLAY, AND DOESN'T BOOT UP. ...


Its sounds like you have a faulty battery, take the battery out and take it to your local pc store and ask them if they will test it for you, if they find it is faulty you will have to buy a new one. Check that the power cable is working as well it might be that its not charging the battery so it might be worth taking that to the shop too for them to test. hope this helps and post back to let me how it goes.cheers.

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51


The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.
