Computer will not start up only sometimes after it sits for days but after shut dowm wont start up again


Try performing a hard reset on the laptop by removing the battery, unplugging the Power Adapter and disconnecting external devices connected to the laptop. Once everything is removed/disconnected, press and hold the power button for around 15 seconds. Put everything back then power the PC on. The reason this issue happens is because the computer doesn't shut down properly and because of this charges get left on the laptop's motherboard, holding power button down with nothing connected to the PC drains these charges. If still the same issue exists, try updating Windows, there might be updates that doesn't install completely. Update drivers as well and run a system scan with your security software.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Re-boot and see if it happens again. To shut it down, press and hold the power button till it shuts off. Remove the battery and power adapter and then hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. Then re-install the battery and adapter. Push the power button to energize the laptop.

WIFE USING LAPTOP, SUDDENLY SAID SHUT DOWN ,screen went black, but power stays on and will not shut down


Most of the time when a laptop or a PC does that it is over heating.

If you noticed that the CPU fan is going real fast and the laptop is pretty warm its probably overheating due to dust getting inside by the fan.

If it is buy a can of compressed air at your local store at push the air the opposite way that it is comming out.

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


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.
