Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Accidentally put my system on standby mode..using XP OS and DIY desktop.now i cannot get out of standby mode..check KB and mouse ok..any shortcut key or other ways i can start up and boot?even my two DVD...


I think you have to shut your computer down completely and reboot. This means that you will lose any work you didn't save before going in standby mode.
If your PC has a 'reset' button (usually located near the power button), press it. Your machine should reboot. If it doesn't or if you don't have one, you can try pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. This should shut down your computer completely. Press the power button once more and it should boot normally, though you might get a warning saying Windows didn't shut down properly. If you get the choice, just choose to boot Windows normally. If pressing and holding the power button doesn't work, try looking for a power switch on the back of your machine. It should be near the power cable. Flip the switch, wait a few seconds and flip it again, then boot your computer as usual. You might get the same message which I mentioned above.

When i shut down my pc it shuts down, but the psu stays on, i can turn it off by the button but not by the desktop, any ideas???


Hi, "Sleep" mode or "standby" mode allows your computer to go on standby or sleep until you "wake" it up again. This is a power saving feature which is usually used for a few hours. You can change it to completely shut down everything (including power supply) in power supply options in your control panel. Check out your help section for sleep or standby options. Hank

VisionQuest Van gogh Plasma 32''. The standby light shut down. No power on has possible. I check the 3 fuses inside the TV and all is good. Someone know what is the problem !!!! Tks


Good day sir, your tv or any new tv are now using SMPS or technically called switch mode power supply, a regulator mode that is more efficient than traditional power supply, the down side is that its prone to defects, there are three main parts the Switching element which is the transistor, the oscillator circuit which is usually an IC that controls the frequency of oscillation and the high freqency power transformer that works with the switching transistor. All of these parts are need to be checked to ensure proper operations. SMPS also detects overload, which is caused by faulty parts on your tv, unless that faulty part is not found, it will not start and go on standby mode, worst will always shuts down. Call your dealer on how to go about your tv problem or have it check by a qualified technician.

Sagem 45 inch rear projection tv keeps switching off


It is most likely some bad capacitors on the power supply board that are causing it to go into "safety mode" and shuts it down.

'standby' mode and akb error number


AKB 66 in self diagnostic test means...TV goes to standby (shut-off) for AKB problem 66 times. AKB is White-Balance signal and it is not proper or maintained in your TV. So error signal produced and TV goes to shut-down state.
Regardnig Standby button, its available on remote only. If you push TV Power switch, TV will switch ON, push it again to OFF TV. Power Button on remote set TV in standby status and you dont need to push power button of TV itself.
