Re: laptop

Try removing the battery entirely, and see if it will power up with just the power cable. If so, it means that your battery is causing the problem. If not, it's possible the battery is good, but the power cable has gone bad. Usually there is a "brick" in the center of the cable, make sure it is fully plugged into and connected to the cable that leads to the wall socket. In many cases that brick has a green light on it - does your's have the light and if so, is it lit up when it's plugged in?

Why is my battery light staying on constantly

You mean, your laptops shows your battery is charging when charger is no connected? Is it amber or green?

How well does the battery work? Are you getting at least 90 minutes on just battery power? If not, maybe the battery is not working well. Remove the battery, turn on the computer, shut the computer off and restart the computer with the battery installed. Maybe if you reset the battery the computer will "see" the battery as new and after awhile of charging the LED should go from amber to green. While you have the battery out of the computer, check the battery contacts on both the battery and the computer. Make sure that they are clean and not corroded or damaged.

If your battery level is ok and your battery keeps it's charge, let it alone. You wouldn't like to send to repair tour laptop just for that.

Rv510 plugged in but no lights on my laptop

You need to check all of these: 1. External charger, 2. Battery, 3. Internal charger, 4. Software. First, check if the battery is fully charge (or more than 80% charged). Second, use a tested good working battery charger/ac adapter to test your ac adapter (go to local electronic stores and test your laptop with their ac adapters). Third (if your ac adapter and your battery are good), then check your Power Options (click Help and search "power option" if you don't know where it is). If the Power Options is ok, then your motherboard (internal charger) has a problem. You need to bring your laptop to trusted local laptop repair shop.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.

Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).

Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.

Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.

Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.

hope this helps

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

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer and before you touch anything be sure to wear an earth strap you might also check the ram make sure its securely seated and the cmos battery

hope this helps

Try a hard reset. Make sure all the cables are plugged in the drive. Simply shut down the computer then unplug from the wall. Push in the power button until it flashes then plug it back in again and restart the computer this will reset everything to default startup. Also if this does not work then go into the BIOS and set computer to default settings that are failsafe. If this does not work click on F8 go into the safe mode and see if the hard drive is there.

If not go and turn off the machine then open the box and pull the drives cable and power supply restart the machine then shut it down again and plug the drive back in with the computer off and hook the power supply cable back up. Plug the computer back in and restart if you get a blue screen at the start your drive is most likely faulty and you will need to do another re-install. If that does not work then the drive is faulty and needs to be replaced. I hope this assisted you, thanks for using FixYa for your questions. Be sure to comment on my fix if you fell like it. John

My laptop isn't picking up my external harddrive anymore? There is nothing wrong with it's power supply and usually it comes up immediately. How do I test whether the harddrive is still working?


you have to try it out on another pc, plug it in the USB port and watch if there is any autoplay or so. If so, then it has most probably to do with the registry keys.
Please specify your operating system (XP, Vista, Windows 7,...)

Toshiba satellite pro 4200 wont start,just 1 flashing amber light

I had a similar problem on SatPro6100. Mine was LSSSLSSL (10010001).

Thinking that the laptop was buggered I decided I would take it apart and have a look at the insides.

Whilst it was apart I also disconnected the BIOS battery.

Couldn't find anything that looked like it had burnt out so put it all back together again.

When I turned it on again the darn thing was working fine!!!
Go figure!!

The whole thing was apart for about 2 hours or so.
I don't know if it was removing the main battery and leaving it out for that time or whether it was resetting the BIOS (by disconnecting its battery) that fixed the problem.

Anyway, I have managed to get all my data off the laptop so not too worried if it screws up again.

I do however always disconnect the power source BEFORE shutting down the laptop and only reconnect it after I have pressed the on button. Seems to be working fine (for now!)

Hope that helps someone out there!
