    Oh I'm sorry I had the info typed in the search, but forgot it in the entry. The laptop is a Lenovo y530. It is approximately 6 months old and was bought brand new. Never had any problems with it before. Was using it then powered it down and it seemed to shut down without any problems, but did seem to take a little longer than usual. I am not completely sure that it shut down all the way, I had closed the lid and put it away. Approximately a half an hour later I went and opened it up. It was on and at the system password screen like it had restarted and it was extremely hot. I shut it down and gave it a few minutes to cool off. When I tried to start it up again the lights would come on, but there is no vibrations of the hard drive spinning or any sign of anything working. The lights stay on for a moment, but nothing appears on the screen and then everything turns off. I've tried pulling the battery and leaving it out for a while and also I've tried starting it up without the battery in it, just using the power supply.

    Thanks for any help,

Try powering up without the battery to see if the battery is faulty.

Try wiggling the power connector at the end where the power adapter is connected. If it works for a longer period, the power jack could be faulty or have loose connections. You probably would need service, then.

Hope this helps.

I have forgotten my pin code for my supersonic SC-74MID tablet. How do I reset it?


I don't know which OS your tablet uses... perhaps Jelly Bean. If so, if you push the Power button and the "Power Off" option shows up on the screen press the selection of "Power Off" and hold your finger down on it until a pop-up screen shows a selection of: Boot into "Safe Mode". Choose that and what happens is it boots up with no applications loaded. You should then be able to access the "Settings" and then choose "Factory Data Reset" option. Hope this works

Screen won't come on.


Screen won't come on when? When you first hit the power button to boot it up? Does anything ever post to the screen when you hit the Power Button? Or does it seem like it booted up all the way (you hear the fan running, you hear the hard drive spinning) except the screen is black?

If it seems like it booted up all the way except the screen is black try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

If it does not seem like it booted up all the way try the steps below:

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.


Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.


Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My HP Pavilion dv9740us Notebook PC dosent start the screen is black


Doesn't start as in nothing happens when you hit the power button? Or are you saying the Desktop is black, but it seems like windows started and went through the boot process?

If nothing happens when you hit the power button:
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12.

Why is my ps3 160 gb not working.. the green light comes on. but takes 10s to come off. there is no yello light. maybe its the hdd . . . there is nothing showing on the screen


Hi there, try to do a hard reboot on your system. I suggest you have the system turned off, and when you power it up from the system itself hold the power button not just push it. It will beep and turn on but while you are holding the button it should beep beep again and turn back off continue to hold the button and it should boot up 1 more time. or you may have to let go of the button and hit it 1 more time, but it may help your situation

My thinkpad t21 just died! It started 2 weeks ago when I would turn it on, sometimes the screen would not light up or come on. I could see in the shadow, if there was a light on the screen that it was...


Remove the battery and power cord. Hold the power button in while connecting the power cord hen the battery. This will reset the power distribution settings. If this does nor resolve the issue then you need a new power supply. With this machine a new computer would be less expensive.
