    I have the same issue but the Laptop wont boot into the bios or from a CD. When trying to enter the bios it gets past the detecting the drives and memory but then reboots. Have eliminated the RAM and HDD as the causes.

    My laptop Acer travelmate 5000 series powers on. The fan starts and then there is no display.The fan stops.

    I checked the RAM n changes with 1 GB but yet not resolved. I think there is problem with the CMOS battery. But no ACER service center.

    When my acer 290 starts up the fan comes on for a few sec and then the screen goes black.Restart and does the same thing. If I beat on the keyboard I can get it start up and use it but at any giving time it will just shut off.

I had the same problem with my acer 290 series laptop. (It would blue screen during the boot up process) It turned out that if I swiched off the wireless swich on the side of the laptop, the problem went away. I simply brought a wireless card to plug in the side of the laptop. Now all is well..

When i tried to turn mine on the lights lit up for maybe 2 seconds could hear it trying to start then it would shut itself back down and try again. it just kept doing this over and over.had to send it to hp. no one else could figure it out. hp said it was a faulty motherboard, but was covered under a factory recall. they fixed it at no charge.

Screen not displaying. and fun starts and stops, remains stand by when restarted the fun runs and stops stand by.


hello there,

I got the same problem but it came gradually...

In fact for a full month when I first boot the computer, the fans runs, no extra beeps, the light blinked correctly but no bios at the screeen. I remarked also that the fans run full speed doing a lot of noise. Then I stopped the computer and wait 2 minutes and then it always works correclty at the second boot with the bios screen appearing. Also, the fan calm down after 1 second with less noise. So when I start the computer and hear that the fan calm down with less noise after 1 second, I know that the computer will boot correctly. That happens always at the second try after waiting 2 minutes. But since yesterday, the fans never calm down and the noise still remains high with no Bios at the screen. I'm suspecting the Power Supply...

i hope my i dea can help you.

Did you try using another power cord to see if it starts? Could be a weak power cord or intermittent failing power cord.

Could also be a short in the system preventing power to flow through the laptop

It will not boot up the fan starts but stops after a few seconds. I just get ba white screen. it could be the video card


when the fans start and then stop after a few seconds the processor is shutting down on the protection circuit. check for swollen capacitors. very small and hard to replace but critical to motherboard operation

Does not boot up, fans start, internet plugs light, clicks on and off.....seems this is a common problem for these machines, what is the fix?


Instructions
  1. When you press the Power button to start the boot process, the LED lights glow while the computer verifies that there is sufficient electrical power to activate the hardware.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LED lights on the computer do not glow or the LEDs blink briefly and then stop. There is no sound of the fan or hard drive spinning, and the screen remains blank. The computer will not start if there is insufficient battery or AC adapter power.
  2. The BIOS queries various hardware components used for the startup boot process.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow but there is no fan or hard drive sound. The LEDs may glow briefly and then go out.

    Or

    The LED lights blink, stop, and then blink a second or third time, but there is no sound from the computer and the screen remains blank. The sequence of the blinking lights indicates a specific error code.

    Or

    A series of beeping tones is heard. The sequence of beeping tones indicate a specific error code.

    If a hardware component has recently been replaced, or if the PC has been jarred or shaken, there may be a loose connection to the memory chips or hard drive which prevents the computer from starting.
  3. The BIOS loads the basic input (keyboard) and output (advanced LEDs / display screen / boot drives) devices into memory.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, but then the boot process stops and a black screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a communication error or conflict with a hardware component that must be corrected.
  4. The BIOS loads the Windows operating system and starts the services that allow low-level control of all of the background operations.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, the HP or Compaq Logo displays on a black screen, but then the boot process stops and a blue screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a hardware driver error or a software conflict that must be corrected.
  5. Control is transferred to the Windows loader to initiate the display of the advanced settings in the Windows environment.

    The Windows logo displays during this step.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the computer performs all the steps in the boot process, but after the Windows Logo displays, the moving Windows progress bar or the rotating cursor stops moving and the boot process stops.

    An error message may display on a screen with the Windows logo. In some instances, there is no specific error message.

    Or

    A black screen appears and the computer attempts to restart.

    The Windows self-check has detected a software conflict that must be corrected.

Power On, Fans start but stop in few seconds and that's all


May be there is a problem in the windows, but suppose it is not booting at all.

First Check once more your boot options from bios menu
Second If it still the same thing, extract your battery out of your laptop for 12 min, then try to power up your laptop pluging in your power cable(don't use your battery)
Third If it still not working, there must be a problem in your cooling fan, so check it, also check your motherboard & your graphics card (Most of this problems happens due to a problem in the computer cooling system in motherboard & graphics card)

Hope it works for you Christos

My hp laptop will not boot up


Check the power supply for power. Replace if necessary. Also check the motherboard for proper operation. If no fans come on or only come on for a few seconds then you have a bad motherboard
