Model S400CA-CA006H, Power ON, only back lit blank display. Battery icon is green while the BULB icon LED is orange in colour.

  • rjsymmes has the most accurate solution. Start with a battery replacement. Next course of action is to use a Bootable Media Source (Windows Disk or Recovery Disk) to see if the laptop responds and can have the Start Up repaired. If a Boot Media fails, then examine RAM, Hard Drive removal, then boot. Last resort Motherboard.

Laptop won't stay on

I would need more information as to what is going on to accurately help but a few suggestions:

1) IF you have your laptop plugged in while starting up try a charger that you know works 100% and try to plug it in to another outlet (either the outlet, surge protector or charger could be dead).
2) IF this does not help, then your battery could very well be dead.
3) IF you can tell that your power is working and nothing is dead, then it could be an internal software or hardware problem and I'd need more details to help.

a) Have there been any errors before this?
b) Has your computer been slowing down lately?
c) How old is your PC?
d) How often do you de-fragment your PC?
e) Any other errors, problems, etc you've had that you got around but still appeared?

My Asus laptop's screen is blank and stays blank.

You might try a hard boot, hold power button 5 sec. then as it reboots use one of the function keys to get into the bios. Usually F2 or F8 or F12. Start in safe mode then check you resolution setting and make sure you video card drivers are up to date. Good luck.

Frigidaire front load washer. E46 error. replaced control board. Still have same error code. Is there a way to clear the error code and reset the washer with the new board?

Hello CJ Lou - Typically that is correct, error code E46 indicates to replace main control board. First, either unplug or flip the household circuit breaker off to the washer to reprogram it. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. Then try pressing and holding the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons simultaneously. All LED's will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LED's. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons are pressed. A two second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

I am getting a message that reads something like "Realtime Clock Error # ?" And then the machine will not operate even so much as to loak the OS.

usually this error is caused by your CMOS battery being dead.

You can verify that by getting into your BIOS and checking the date and time on your laptop.

If they are wrong, then usually that is the cause. Replacing that battery varies by model, but usually, if you go in, set the time, and save it,and the laptop is still powered up, the time will stay accurate, enough to load an OS, and once you unplug it, will need reset again.

HP dv6000 Laptop screen only starts up 1/4th of the time

The first issue you had with one long beeps and two short beeps is a memory module error. see the following HP website: I would replace the memory chips and try again. If you have more than one chip try booting with one at a time to discover that one of them may be bad.
