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.

I have a FD 500GB hard drive, and have a problem in recognizing the hard drive with my media player as well as computer..it was working fine couple of days back since 2 years..suddenly this problem came...


Unfortunately it sounds like it may have crashed. Try placing it on its side and trying again. If it does the same thing the best you may be able to do is find a professional that can get the information off and put on another drive.

My Compaq Presario F756nr will not turn on. The blue light to the power cord is on and blue light on front of laptop is orange but when you press the power on button it comes on then goes right off.


Hold the Power button and at the same time attempt to continually press the button for the CD/DVD drive. Continue until the status lights for power, hard drive and power button stay on for 3 seconds or longer. When status lights remain on, remove your finger from power button and allow the machine to boot as usual. Enjoy.

My samsung r519 wont turn on. when i press the on button i here the fan going, yet the screen stay's black and only the power light comes on. what could the problem be?


Does the fan stay running? if it does! it is probably a motherboard issue, if the fan is working correctly it should wind down, and if the hard drive is working "hard drive light will flicker" hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of your laptop if you see windows boots up then it would indicate laptop screen problem, but if the fan and the power light are the only activity then the motherboard is the problem.

My samsung R519 will not turn on. The battery is fine. However, when putting it on the on light goes on but the others dont. You can feel the fan begin but nothing? Any ideas?


If you feel that the fan does not move the all, that is the main cause of your problem. To reseat the fan, kindly turn off your laptop, remove cables & battery, press and hold power button for 8 secs, remove the screws at the back of the battery, remove the hard drive, remove the optical drive, and then reseat the fan. Then insert back the optical drive, hard drive, screws, cables and battery then turn on the laptop. IF it did not work, you need to call Samsung to replace your fan.

Everex Stepnote NC1500 wont boot


Are there any other lights on or any other activity, or does it just die? If it only pops up with the hard drive light briefly then dies, your laptop might just be dying because the battery isn't holding a charge.

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51


The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.

Hard drive replacement


Can only find one manual for this machine and the download is only compatible with Windows ME. The hard drive is located in the front left hand corner of the machine. Look at the front for a retangular panel, held by two screws, that slides out. Also, with some of the older Toshibas to acess the drive, you had to remove the plastic that surrounds the keyboard, holding the mouse buttons.
