    Remove the Battery and try to run the laptop on the AC power. If the laptop still turns off automatically then restart the Computer and access the BIOS to check if the same issue occurs when the Computer is in BIOS setup screen. IF the issue persists in the BIOS also then disconnect the AC Adaptor and remove the Battery pack then press and hold the "POWER" button for 30 seconds. Now, connect the AC adaptor to the Computer with the Battery out then try to turn it ON. If the problem still exists then the issue is with the power supply unit. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the switch at least starts the laptop.. then it is not the switch

check that you can boot the pc with the battery pulled out of the laptop and the power supply plugged in...

if this works then you need a new battery

if this does not work.... then the motherboard or the power adapter plug maybe the issue.. is the plug on the side of the laptop solid... or sloppy fitting..

if solid then the motherboard cpu and memory are the suspected components next..

is there beep noises during boot for the three seconds that occur???

My ipod wont stay charged


This may not be the answer you are looking for but your I pod might not be fully charged, meaning that you are not plugging it in the computer/docking system long enough.( it takes much longer than 15 minutes to charge the battery. So you might want to plug it in/dock it over night) Or you may be playing a game that uses a lot of MB/GB so it kills the battery. And make sure that you press the play/pause button down for at least five seconds before switching the little switch at the top of your I pod. If you don't press the play/pause button for five seconds and just switch the switch at the top a little lock will appear on the left corner meaning you need to hold the play/pause button down for five seconds then the i pod screen goes black at that time flick the switch at the top off. -hope it helps owner of i pod nano and I pod touch.

PS3 wont boot the operating system, so wont stay switched on!


It doesn't happen to everyone, but just about.

The problem is most likely related to the GPU on the motherboard.

But let's find out for sure.

Try booting the PS3 with the hard drive removed.

Let me know what happens.

LCD Screen problem


You have a failed inverter circuit. This is a very common fault with BenQ and other LCD monitors. I have seen more FP737 and FP731's and all their cousins in the last 2 years then I care to count.

You will be best to take it to a TV technician and have them do the repair. There are ways to fix it yourself, but the chances of success are not great without a decent amount of electronic knowledge.

Call several places and get approx quotes based on the inverter fault. A lot of TV techs will not work on LCD monitors and is another good reason to call around first.

One final thing, check the manufacture date on the back of the monitor, these normally come with a 3 year warranty and it will be either expired now, or very close to it. If it is still under warranty, then contact BenQ near you to facilitate the repairs.
