    I press the power button. the Blue light and the fan turn on. Then after 5 seconds the third light in (amber color) on the left side comes on, then Lab top powers off after about 10 seconds.

I had the same problem. It is actually very common problem with the Maxin chip near the processor. The solder joins become cracked over time from the motherboard flexing when the lid is opened and closed.
A temp solution is to press down firmly with the palm of your hand around the F12 and leter P button areas. Make sure you do this with the laptop on a flat surface.
Bingo.. your laptop should then boot. However, moving the laptop may once again flex the motherboard and the unit will freeze again.

Good luck.

The solution to your problem is probably not the monitor, follow these steps:

1. Connect and boot your computer with 2 different monitors.
2. If it does'nt work with either of them the problem is from another computer component.

Posible Problems:

1. Your video card may be damaged or moved from it's slot.
2. Your proccessor may be damaged.

Posible solutions:

1. If you have computer hardware knowledge open the case
2. Remove the Video card.
3. Insert it back or insert another video card from a friend.(if it works with your friends card, obviously the video card is the problem)
4. Restart your computer and see if it works.

Now if it does'nt work after that you will have to replace your proccessor with one that works, from a friend, because you say your computer boots but if your monitor doesn't work you don't know for sure if it boots corectly.

The steps above are only for people with hardware knowledge, if that is not your case you should contact a computer service.

Good Luck

Gatweway lap top button light up, but wont turn on

I'm afraid this sounds suspiciously like a motherboard problem. It would help to know what model etc, as some Gateway & EMachine model laptops have had extended warranties due to motherboard issues, or just go to and research it yourself.

Toshiba equium m40x won't power up

whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday
