Re: doesn't start up

I've been having the same problem. I did as you said, removed the battery and plugged into AC with no luck. Till a couple of days ago, I was having this problem intermittently. When it turns off, I was able to turn it on again. But now, it doesn't turn on at all.

After about 10 or 15 seconds, it turns off automatically.

It's a HP Pavillion dv6119us model ( warrany expired on dec 13th :( ).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: doesn't start up

Remove the primary battery and plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. If the computer starts up, one of the batteries need to be replaced. If the battery light on the of the comoputer is blinking, the battery has reached a low batery level, which may not allow the computer to start up. Plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter to start the computer and allow the battery to charge.

My Sony vaio pcg 3c2l has locked up. The keyboard stopped responding and now the screen is black, but the power light is still on. The power button doesn't respond when I push it. What should I do?

Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes. Then try to start it up again.

Sounds like it is stuck in hibernate mode. Hold the power button down for 5 seconds and try to start it again. If it doesn't start remove the battery, unplug the laptop, hold the power button down for 60 seconds. Now plug in the power supply but leave the battery out. Turn it on. It should start now and you can re-insert the battery.
