Re: sturt up problem

Get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

smtime low cmos battery could cause the pc not to start

a defected cpu and / or ac adapter will do too

Windows 7 wont shut down

What happens when you try to shut it down? You can always try Pressing and Holding the Power Button until it shuts down.

If it is stalling when you go thru the normal shut down process then just wait a few minutes then press and hold the power button.

If pressing and holding the power button don't work, remove the power cord, then remove the battery. This will surely work because there will be no power source.

The laptop was turned off improperly and the power light is on but there is nothing oon the screen

Try pressing and holding the power button down until the power light goes off.
Once it is off, then try to turn-on the laptop as usual.
If this does not work, remove the power cord and the battery from the laptop, and then press and hold the power button down for 30 seconds.
After the 30 seconds, release the button, install the battery and re-connect the power cord. Start the laptop as usual by pressing the power button briefly.
