    When I did get it up previously it was attached to a seperate monitor and both the laptop monitor and the seperate monitor came on and when one shut they both shut off. So should I take this somewhere to have the video card replaced? About how much is a video card for a laptop?

  • dceier Aug 02, 2009

    When I got it to start bootup I did the restore unfortunately I am not able to get this up to even try downloading anything and it is not recognizing the CD drive either.

  • dceier Aug 02, 2009

    At the moment nothing is displaying because I cant get it to come on.

  • dceier Aug 02, 2009

    Trying to determine if I have exhausted all options and need to take the computer into a repair shop.

    Thank you to everyone for your help.

Hi,

If all your lights working and the monitor doesnt turn on..The laptop may be switched to monitor mode, to turn to LCD mode, you must have specia KEYS OR combination of keys such as Fn+key with square symbol....By pressing you can get back to LCD mode...


IF your laptop switches off immediately,ie, if you are getting moniotr powered on for a second and if its getting switched, then it may be due to overheat, ie, you fan or heat sink must be replaced, contact your vendor...From your query i seek this as a problem

ENJOY! RATE THISW SOLUTION

    So does that mean the CD player is not being displayed?

  • Sai Kiran Camsarapalli Aug 02, 2009

    I would suggest you to remove the Hard disk Memory and the Optical drive, you also have a connector to you Video card. Kindly look in to the manual about how to access the same.



    I would recommend you to contact the manufacturer for removing and placing back the components back in its placing.

If you have a monitor connect the laptop to it to ensure that there is a display. If a normal monitor does not show a display then the video card has shot itself and will need replacing. If the attached monitor is working it may be a broken wire between the laptop screen and the base.

There are no guarantees with this suggestion but it is another angle to research. good luck

  • dennis bullard Aug 02, 2009

    Ok well that was close then. It sounds like the card is either shot or has some instabiloity on the board.
    If it's a separate board it may not be seated correctly
    . Now the bad news overal ( maybe) is that some models have integrated video cards on the motherboard. Whether this can be fixed is debatable. It may be a complete M.Board Change. I would suggest getting a quote first by a distributor of the brand before committing financial suicide. It may even be cheaper to buy a second hand unit ( depending how old yours is) or ditching it and getting a new one. Toshiba have LO300 model out for about $Au450 after $150 cash back

My dell inspiron M5030 turns on showing the dell logo and then it turns off


I would remove the power supply, battery, hard drive and RAM. Power up the laptop with just the power adapter and enter bios. If it goes to bios OK, select the default setting. Press F10 and let it try to re boot.
Remove the power supply and fit the RAM. Insert the power supply and try to boot. You should have error message on screen. Remove the power and insert the hard drive. Connect the power supply and attempt to boot.
That sequence should show the issue at the point that there is no display that is where the issue is.

My acer aspire 5551 wont boot up i have a power light and the screec flicks when i turn it on but the screen stays blank


Sounds like a motherboard or maybe a hard drive problem.
It could also be a power issue. Check this first: Is the power adapter plugged into the wall? Is the computer end of the adapter putting out the correct voltage (~18v)?
Try booting without the battery.
Since this is a laptop, you really don't have the option of disconnecting your hardware. So I would try to boot it up and press the F2 key (or whichever key it is in an Acer) to get into setup.
Next try to boot it with a system disk (CD or DVD).
If all these fail, you are looking at a motherboard problem, in my opinion. You could remove the hard drive and try to start it just to be sure that the hard drive isn't causing the problem.

I have an intermittent power-on issue with my Dell E4200. Sometimes it is very hard to turn on - pressing the power button makes the button light up, the fan runs for a few seconds, then the caps lock icon...


Try performing a hard reset on the laptop. Remove the battery and all peripherals connected to the laptop (including the AC adapter). Once everything is removed/disconnected, press and hold the power button for around 15 seconds. This will drain all remaining charge in the motherboards capacitors which usually causes this kind of issue.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Laptop doesnt boot and the monitor doesn't switch on. When we switch on the laptop the processor runs for few seconds and then shuts down and the system tries to restart itself..


Hi,

You can try the following steps:

1. Unplug the power from the laptop and remove the battery then press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds

2. Put the battery back in, turn on the laptop without plugging the power to the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue)

3. Remove the battery and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, after that, plug the power cord and turn on the laptop (if this didn't resolve the issue)

4. Remove the power cord and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, disconnect the Hard drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnec the hard drive

5. Remove the Optical Drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnect the optical drive

6. Remove the memory chip, if you have 2 memory chips installed in the 2 memory slots (remove both of them) now test each one of the memory to each slots turning on the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue) Put the memory chip back in

7. Reseat the CPU and try to make sure that it's installed properly. Turn on the laptop and test if it's gonna work (If this didn't resolve the issue)

8. Reseat the power cords coming from the power supply of the laptop and test the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue)

9. Disconnect everything and just leave the CPU installed and turn on the laptop.

10. If all else fails, there's a big possibility that the problem may be with the power supply or the motherboard of the laptop.

(Note: you may try to clean your computer if there is a large amount of dust. You may try to remove the CMOS battery)

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

Toshibas are dieing on me.


How about if you boot with just the battery in? Does the battery charge? Possible solution include: remove and replace memory chips to make sure they are seated correctly. Check with a known good power supply. Almost sounds like a motherboard issue to me. Plenty of laptop problems are related to bad solder joints on the motherboard, unless you or someone you know can open it up and find a bad joint the only solution is mother board replacement. Try reseating the memory first.
