    Power On switch is bad, or the Power Supply is bad. There is a test to do to find out which one it is. Want to know more?

Just recently happened with my HP. In all likelyhood its the power supply unit inside the machine. If you have access to another computer H.P. has a troubleshooting guide on its website to guide you through some basic tests. If you have no access you can call them for the same guidance with no charge. Customer service is friendly, prompt, and they have great patience and will take their time with you.
Problem can go from the Power Unit, to Motherboard, to Hard Drive, to Battery, etc. Some troubleshooting can narrow it down for ya.
Good Luck.

Dell Studio 1737 --power button is broken. Is there another way to power it on?


friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...

first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck )
in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..

ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)

1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press
2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time.
3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly.
it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button

then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :)
thanks :)

Looking for remote codes


Hello rcbriggs, my name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. We would have remote codes for you home theater system but it would depend on the model of the DISH remote that you have to give you the right one. What model DISH receiver/remote do you have? You can also try a Power Scan to get the volume to work with your DISH remote. Here are the steps for a Power Scan: With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate, then release. Press and release the Power button. AUX Mode: Before pressing and releasing the Power button. Press 0 for a TV, Press 1 for a VCR/DVD and Press 2 for any other device. Then Press STAR (*). Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off. Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

Reference the Power LED States
Dell OptiPlex and Dimension computers and Dell Precision workstations have incorporated the use of the multi-state power button LED as a hardware status indicator. The power button LED illuminates in two different colors and can also blink, which allows for indication of five different system operation states. (Table 1)
LED State
System State
Steady Yellow The power supply is functioning, but the system is not processing data. This may indicate an issue with the system board or CPU. Blinking Yellow The power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This may indicate a power supply problem. Steady Green This generally indicates that the system is functioning normally. However, if problems are detected with installed components, the system may initiate a beep code. Blinking Green The system is in a Standby ACPI state. Off The system power is off.
