Re: no startup

Majority of beep codes mean there's something wrong with the memory modules or a bad motherboard.

Try taking your RAM mods out and snapping them in. If you have 2, try using one at a time. Then you'll know which one is bad.

Here's a doc on how to do that:

On acer aspire laptop screen is grey at startup


1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, It probably should show an ACER logo?

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). If you do see a faint image it could mean your back light is broken.

3. When you press the power button do you get different LED's lighting up on the laptop? IE power LED, hard drive LED?

4. Does your computer give you any random beeps when it starts up?

Please answer these questions and I would be more than happy to work through this with your.

Thanks RCCT

Dell Portable Battery LED flashes Orange 4 times then Green once

This LED flash pattern, Orange, Orange, Orange, Orange, Green (Repeats) indicates a internal failure of the Battery. Pressing the charge indicator button on the battery (If equipped) will give a 1 3 5 LED on indication which also indicates a failure in the battery.
The battery may still function, but at less than optimal performance and will have a progressively shorter functional life until it dies.
The only way to resolve the issue is to replace the battery.

Battery light flashing orange

Your battery may have Battery charge status indicator, when you press the button next to the 4 led indicators the LEDs indicate the charge status.
Also the System Battery/Charge LED indicates the battery's current operational condition.
Flashing orange indicates Battery failure.

How do I take out the over flow cartrigde on a mp130? Printer wont print it says i need to empty my over flow and I don't know how.

SAome have a pad some have a small tray. This cancelled the warning and reset the printer for use.

Waste ink full reset

These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma ip90 bought August 06:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

My Dell 100L will not switch on and battery will not charge.

since the LED is orange it might be a ram issue. try to locate the memory modules in your computer then try to reseat them. or if you have 2 ram modules try to remove 1 first then try to turn on the laptop check if it will do the same thing. then try removing 2 ram modules check if it will beep. if no beeps ask for mobo replacement. if it has beeps take note of the beep codes.

SP 6000/PS6000E-207PK-EN Will not fire up. If press start, then LEDs flash Orange (1st left) 5 times then 2, then 1 and then repeats. 3rd LED (green) stays on. If battery is removed, start button pressed...

You got some short on board, You need techguy. Or possible Bios flash, Remove the Harddisk and press the power button.
If nothing change, Remove power, battery, cd rom, Hdd, memory.

Then put one stick of memory, power up, see anything comes up.If does, power off, put the other memory plug in power, fire up.
If does ok. Then plug off, and put hdd without CD rom. see if it did work.

If none is worked as I say you have short or CPU fan is not functioning.

Battery light flashes 4times orange then 1green

We had the same problem. I figured out it was NOT the main battery, but the auxilary battery. The batter life WITH the auxiliary was 68% total, when I removed the 2nd battery the battery life shot back up to 98% AND the flashing orange / red lights were gone (both on the power source and off). I then replaced the auxiliary battery with a spar back up to make SURE that it was not a fluke and with the new backup battery firmly in place the lights still did not flash. Problem solved.
