Compaq F572US won't start (led turns on, but nothing happens)

My PC first had some minor problems, like the wireless connection wouldn't work, then it heated up too much while playing dvds. now it won't start up: when i press the button, the led turns on but the screen remains black. After a minute, the led turns off and then back on again but nothing happens.
What should I do?

I have been having the same problem. At first I thought that the motherboard was fried and the laptop was a paper weight, but I kept it plugged in and kept pressing the power button several times over the days. It would always seem to start (screen remained off/black) and then it would just go off again in seconds. But persevarence has paid off, finally almost after a week it started up like normal and started working again as normal. I then had the same episode repeat a few weeks later, the computer was useless for a few days and again started up as I kept pressing the power button several times a day.

I believe the problem is with the standby mode. Each time the problem happened, it seems like the computer was going into standby mode and the power button was pressed again before it could competely go into standby or the button was pressed again while it was coming out of standby.

To sum it up, nothing is wrong with the cimputer components, there is some problem with the standby routine. Keep pressing the power button and hopefully you can get lucky in getting the computer to start again. Long term, I am thinking about checking whether there was a new flash update that came out that could fix this problem. I purchased the laptop compaq F72US in 2008 and never updated anything. Also worth noting that I called HP and they didn't stand behind their product.

Now the week that Win 7 comes out, this one dies. MSFT Conspiracy >????? Anyone ??

I have the same problem. What I found works is pressing the Control, Alt, Delete, and Power button at the same time. Hold for several seconds until the computer turns off. Then press the Power button again and it should boot up with the screen working.

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

two solutions:

2- VGA of your laptop almost destroyed !!(sorry damaged).

Try these steps in order

1) UNPLUG THE LAPTOP
2) REMOVE THE BATTERY
3) HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS TO 2 MINUTES
4) THEN PUT THE BATTERY BACK IN
5) START IT UP.

After you get it started you will most Likely have to reinstalled windows.

Can't access internet wireles router says connected hp is a vista


If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.

Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Good luck..

Compaq HP Presario F572US just turned off.


Remove the battery and plug laptop power into the wall (or power strip).
Turn ON laptop without battery.
It should start.
After Windows has settled, put battery back in and let it charge up.

Hope this helps!

Problems starting up


Hi,
This fault is caused with hibernation settings.
Turn it off in control panel, power options.
Problem will be gone then.

All computers struggle to come out of Hibernation.
