Frist item to check is the battery. Power it on with the charger charging. If it boots , the battery is absolutely dead.

HOW DO I SHUT OFF THE DISPLAY THAT SHOWS OF


If you have a newer Samsung refrigerator, lightly but firmly (if that makes sense?) and quickly hold down the button that says light. This should cause the light on the front of the door display to fade softly to off or no light.

My laptop has a black screen and i cannot give it any command and have to force shut it down


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

I looks like it is only the display which is asleep. If you go into your power or "Energy Saver" on a Mac, set it so the harddrive goes to sleep. The LED might still fade on and off but the fan should stop.
Hope this helps!

Shut down the computer.
Turn on the computer tapping F10 key on your keyboard.
You will see BIOS comming up.
Go to the option SMART and Run HDD Self Test.

Try pressing the AutoSet button and if this fails try a different cable. Make sure that you press the external monitor select key on the laptop and that the brightness and contrast is not turned all the way down.

I have an HP Pavillion dv9500 laptop. After shutting down, all the keyboard lights to the right of the power button stay lit. This shows the power is not shut off but should be. Any solutions?


First of all, is the laptop on charge? Usually when the laptop is on charge there is a light somewhere that remains on until it is charged. After charging, the light goes of and if the laptop is not used for a long time, the battery usually discharges a little and the system senses this and recharges it as top-up and the light comes on, then goes off once charged. If your laptop is not on charge, then there is 2 things that could be the cause. 1) It is not shut down properly (on stand-by). 2) It may be downloading updates and it would probably shut down later, depending on the size of the update, it may take a few minutes or up to 1 hour. If in 1 hour the light is still on, then there is a problem with the laptop and need to be checked by a professional, or, altermnatively, turn it off a second time and see if the light still remains on. Lastly, you did not state what kind of lights remain on, Power, Charging, Standby, etc. it is difficult to help you with your query as the problem could be the laptop itself. There are other things that could keep the laptop on, and that may be if your laptop is connected to a network. Regards.

Shutting down


what is happening is it is hibernating not shutting down, open up acer empowering technology and go to the power settings or click on the battery icon in taskbar and click power options, then there will be instructions that say when i turn off; power off and not hibernate as probably selected.
