    I couldn't power up either. At first the green battery light would come on. I would try to power up and it would shut off in a few seconds. Then, there wasn't a battery light either. I took out the battery and it started up. The battery light is only turning on green periodically or not at all.

Dell Latitude D600 PC notebook will not start up. And how I solved the problem.

I pressed the power button. The machine powers up and begins to run the BIOS. The gage shows it about half through the BIOS when it shuts off. It goes black and completely shuts off without warning, without error message, without deviation of any sort, and without any noises.

I've pressed the F2 key to try to enter setup. However, after it indicates "preparing to enter setup." It goes black within a couple of seconds completely shutting off in the same manor as described above.

I've also tried pressing the F12 key during startup. It indicates "preparing one time boot menu." It goes black within a couple of seconds completely shutting off in the same manor as described above.

I've removed the battery and tried to start up. There is no response. No attempt to start, no lights, no noise. It appears to have no power whatsoever.

There is one light that I think is out of the norm. The few brief moments that the notebook remains powered up the battery light is lit up red. I believe it normally comes up green. This led me to think that perhaps the battery was not being charged. I checked the power plug in the back of the notebook. I unplugged it and plugged it in a couple of times. It appears to be firmly seated and without dirt, corrosion or any thing on the plug or between the plug and socket. I also checked the power pack. It appears to the naked eye to be in good condition. I checked the power plug. It is in good condition and firmly seated in the socket of a surge suppressor. The surge suppressor has power and is on. I unplugged the power plug from that surge suppressor and plugged it into another surge suppressor. When I checked the notebook, the battery light was lit green. It was not lit green during any of the preceding problem and analysis. I pressed the power button and the notebook booted up normally. Problem solved.

These are well known for RAM slots failing also. Try running on one stick of RAM at a time or you could need the supply line reworked.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power

You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

I cannot find the shutdown it disappear because of a certain download,now i dont knw how to shut may desktop....plz help i am so sleepy already

Try pushing the power button once, briefly. It should trigger the shutdown sequence. If not, try hitting Ctrl, Alt and Delete at the same time. That should bring up Task Manager. You'll find shut down in there. If that doesn't work either, all you can do is push and hold the power button until it shuts down, usually about 4-5 seconds, or pull the power plug.

Power light blinks red

Hello, If you can turn it back on with the s momentary key or power button:
When it shuts off, do you need to push the power button once or twice to get it back on? Also, does anything else about the picture or sound change as it warms up?
If once, then the controller is shutting the TV down either as a result of a (thermally induced) fault in the controller or it sensing some other problem. Monitoring the voltage on the relay coil (assuming these is one) could help determine what is happening. The controller thinks it is in charge.
If twice, then the power supply is shutting down as the controller still thinks it is on and you are resetting it. A couple of possibilities here would be low voltage or high voltage regulation error (excessive high voltage is sensed and causes shutdown to prevent dangerous X-ray emission). A partially dried up main filter capacitor could also cause a shutdown but there might be other symptoms like hum bars in the picture just before this happened. Clipping a good capacitor across the suspect (with power off!) would confirm or eliminate this possibility.
If it uses a pull-knob (or other hard on/off switch), then this may be like pulling the plug and would reset any abnormal condition.

The set is going into shut down mode for avariety of reasons. Some of the more common problems are vertical o/p ic bad connection or failure, poor solder connection usually in the power or hv section or possibly comb filter circuit breakdown causing 12V line to short. This set incorporate 7 or more shut down circuits and any one of them could be triggering - more trouble shooting is required
