I am Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. I would like to provide you my suggestions on this issue for you...

Well, this issue could happen only due to below three reasons....

1. If the Hard Disk Drive is bad.
2. If RAM card is not working properly.
3. If there is an error with Operating system...

However, to isolate and to resolve the issue I recommend you to perform below solutions and try out. I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.



NOTE**-- If you are ready to perform BIOS update, please connect the Notebook with Ac Adapter and make sure that Battery is also installed for Notebook.

Please open below link in the new Internet Explorer web page...
The web page titles as " WinFlash Utility for HP Notebook System BIOS; Windows-Based"

Link is:

Once if you open the web page, please click on the option " Download Only" and then try to save the download file on Desktop and run the file after download is completed.

This should successfully install the BIOS Update. However, if the issue still persists then please perform next solution

Solution 2:
In this solution we will check the functionality of Hard Disk Drive...

Please restart the Notebook, while it tries to boot up please press F10 key, this should get into BIOS screen or ( SETUP UTILITY ) screen.

In the BIOS screen please locate to the Tools or Advanced Menu, and then select the option HARD DRIVE SELF TEST. and go ahead with testing the HARD DRIVE SELF TEST.

Once if test is completed, it reports a message of the status on Condition of Hard Disk Drive. If you receive error message then it confirms that this is an issue with hard Disk Drive. then you need to replace the Hard Disk Drive for your Notebook.

Else if it reports success, then it confirms that Hard Drive Drive is perfectly alright..

Then only possibility that is left is " Error with Operating system"..

if you found that it is an issue with Operating System then please go ahead with reinstall of the Operating System for your Notebook PC.

This should resolve the issue for you...

If you need any further assistance on this issue, you can mail me at , I'll be glad to help you further on this issue.

Two days ago.videos was working and suddenly the netbook was hang and then i shut down the netbook and after that it is not starting.


It is possible that the Samsung Go N315 netbook fails to operate due to lack of system space.

This might lead to sudden shut down in the netbook.

This usually happens due to some unwanted files in the netbook which occupy significant amount of space in the hard disk as well as system memory.

You could resolve the issue by removing all unwanted data through methods like software testing, manual methods etc.

Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop not starting up, power light on

Keep pressed the power button of your laptop for about 30 seconds, the machine will power down.
--The above step may not be required as already so many days passed by.
Then plug it into the power adapter.
Switch the laptop on.
Boot in "safe mode" (F8 during boot).
This will fix any driver or some operating system issue during previous failed boot process.
Once it boots completely, do a normal shutdown and reboot your laptop in standard mode (no more F8 this time).
Now your laptop will be ready to use.

Will not power up

I think your laptop is having some loss contact inside the Motherboard in between power supply or battery.
Usually just like this and later on it power up again normally.
My advice is you send it to gateway to see your laptop for working it properly. I do it's only a little adjustment on your laptop to them.
Good luck!

Laptop sudden poweroff randomly

I googled "fujitsu laptop forum" and read a couple of posts and it may be an AC input jack problem. If the computer does this without the battery and only AC plugged in then you could assume it's not the battery or charging circiuts. Some laptops get mother board problems but that was not what I read. It wouldn't hurt to go to and post your problem. good luck.

For solving blue screen error

HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
