If this is a laptop pull your battery out and unplug the laptop. Then hold the power button for 10-15 seconds seconds. Once it competely drains. Then put your battery back in and try to turn it on.

However if you are still having problems you either A. have a faulty power supply or B. the System board is faulty. Check and see if you have a manufactures warranty on your device.

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.

We have a new Acer Aspire one and the mouse is frozen. When I try to turn off the unit nothing happens. How do I free the unit or turn off everything?

As this was posted a month ago, I'm presuming you've solved the problem?
However, when your laptop locks up completely, the mouse won't move and the keyboard is unresponsive (press the caps lock key and see if the caps lock LED comes on or off?)
Press and HOLD the power button for a few seconds until the laptop powers off, Wait a few seconds and then power it on again, the computer may moan that it wasn't shut down correctly, but this is normal (because you couldn't shut down correctly)

Compaq presario 700 can only be turned on 6-7hrs after shut down?

wow !!!

open it and check the power system (in the laptop) check for damaged capacitors or any other components that look damaged. Also if any check the coils (i think thats the english name) to be undisrupted, because they have a huge role in starting some power systems ...

If u have any electrical mesurement device use it to find out where the problem might be ...

The BIOS has no relevance to the manifestation that u describe, so it is not the issue!

Control board light on d600 want stay lit. It comes on for a few seconds then turns off.

I'm not sure I'm understanding your problem. There are three lights on the machine, power, battery and hard drive. Is the machine working, starting then shutting down, or not working? Please give me a little more info and I'll be able to help.
