    ok..try this...turn it on again, and while it's booting up, press F8..that's safe mode..turns on a small number of applications and you should be able to open control panel, then display, and turn off the hibernate or sleep mode that's driving us both nuts.

E machine model T3626 turns on display doesnt work and doesnt power off???


Sounds like either the Monitor is bad or the Video Card is bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer and if it can't show a display then more than likely the Video Card is bad. If it shows on the monitor you just plugged in, then the original monitor is bad.

SYSTEM TRIES TO COME ON BUT ONLY MAKES IT TO THE CONFIGURING SCREEN THEN IT SHUTS ITSELF BACK DOWN, THIS IS CONTINUOUS. I have a Dell Inspiron 531. Please advise. Thank you, Candace


It sounds like it could be a problem with overheating, which is causing the machine to turn itself off. Try opening the side cover, and carefully cleaning the motherboard and especially the CPU fan - which is the large fan probably on top of a silver box with loads of fins on it. Carefully remove the dust, and see if this clears up the problem. It may be worth removing and refitting the memory whilst the computer is open, to reduce the problems of bad connections between the cards.

If it doesn't fix it, then reply here with any error messages that pop up on the screen.

Computer turns on leaves message and cuts off


this means that your cpu fan is facing some problems so its better change it or else your pc will encountered on and off. you can use it for 2-5 minutes then turned off automatically and you will notice the the lights is still on.

Same here!


Here is what you can try to do, Remove the batteries, don't plug in the ac adapter. Press and hold the power button for ten (10) seconds then release it. plug in the ac adapter on the computer without the battery, try to turn it on. If it turns on just wait for it to load then shut it down again, if it doesnt still have the display, press and hold the power button for ten seconds to shut it down. Unplug the ac adapter put the battery in and then try to turn it on, if it doesnt have a display still, there might be something wrong with the video cable, you need to have someone do it for you. If it happens that it turns on and have display it means that you need to have your ac adapter checked. if it happens the it turns on and have a display without the battery only, you need to have your battery checked. Hope this helps

Screen seems to be not working properly


try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.

Can't get computor to shut down properly


Shut it down anyway and immediately turn it ack on and do a thourough cleanup. update your virus control and run it> go to Tools (at top) of screen and then internet options and clear your history and cookies>go to all programs> accessories>system tools.clean disc and do that little chore.. If you have a registry cleaner program run that also. When you are all finished try shutting the computer down again, This time if it doesnt work, go and ahead and shut it off anyway and turn it back on and do a defrag (same place as clean disc. Good luck and let me know..
