    Similar problem, the display shown `Hello' then freeze there, the fan and hard drive don't even turned on.

    I had the same problem. The unit died after a power outage. Same symptoms - fan runs for a couple of second and dies; dim "Hello" on the screen. I sent it to LG for repair. They called and said lots of machines had the problem and they couldn't fix it - said they didn't make the part anymore (PNC or PCN card?). They offered to buy it back at a steep discount (depreciated purchase price over three years). I'm having them return it to me.

I know its a pretty basic fix, but try it before sending the unit into LG for the dreaded "cannot be fixed" or $69 story...

Open the unit, remove CMOS battery, start unit without battery, it should display "please wait" wait a couple mins, then unplug / replace battery and restart. Hopefully you will have the success that I did! (I doubt this fixes all your problems... however it most certainly fixed my unit that was stuck with dim Hello, then "DEMO" mode problem)

Best luck to all!

    At this point, I was able to canabolize one unit to save another, the only problem is everyone is holding on to these DEAD units and want $200+ bucks for something that doesnt work. If I could find a stack of them that are dead door stops (as the manufacuturer is only offering $79 to buy the unit back), perhaps I could keep my one unit running on lifesupport...

I sent mine to LG with $69, this is the response I got "The LRM-519 sent to us for repair is needing a part 6871RP0801A which has been discontinued". It looks like we are all out of luck for repairs to this unit...

I had a LRM-519 that would not get past a very dimly lit "hello" on the LED screen. I called tech support and was advised to make sure no disk was in the unit and turn off the power from the unit (not the remote) and unplug it from the wall outlet. While unplugged, hold down the power button for 30 seconds then plug it back in. This didn't work the first time, but after a few tries it worked for me. My unit hadn't worked for nearly 3 months prior to this. Good luck.

According to LG support, it would have cost $69 for labor plus parts to repair the unit. The main board/power board is $40.

Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty



One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive



Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems



motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail



check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working



also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

hope this helps

Cant operate bios after reformatting the unit


If you cannot operate the BIOS, the best way is to reset the CMOS battery which require a very good technician to tear down the unit. Here are the steps:

Turn off laptop

remove cables and battery

Press and hold power button for 5 secs.

Remove screws in the edges of the laptop

Remove Hard drive, Optical Drive and Power supply fan

Press the CMOS battery (circle shaped silver coating) upwards so that it would disengage and put it back in...

Put back the Hard drive, Optical Drive and Power supply fan

Put back screws in the edges of the laptop

Put in cables and battery

Turn on laptop and the BIOS will be reset successfully...

How long does the fan run for? If it dies as soon as you switch it on it could be the power supply or if it is an older laptop the battery.

If you know anyone with the same laptop try swapping the supply.

If the fan continues to run after powering up the unit it is probably the motherboard. It is possible to replace but I would take it to a local IT shop as other internal units could be damaged.

Computer monitor don't work at all.


So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

Probably the mainboard or flaky power supply.

I'd start by replacing the power supply. Buy one you can use in a new machine, though... or "borrow" one from another machine.

Acer Aspire 5100 problem


You don't want to hear this I know, but your symptoms are very much like those of a computer in which the motherboard or processor has died. It is defnitely not the hard drive as you would still get a display and be allowed to go into Bios even if the hard drive was totally out of the computer. And missing memory would result in bios beeps indicating a faulty bios configuration, but all of that requires that the motherboard and processor be good. If they are not, you have the situation you are speaking about.
