most likely your video card is going south, that is a common problem among HP (DV5000, 6000) and Compaq (5000, 6000) the video card is not getting enough fresh air or is getting too hot, after a while it will just stop working and you would be able to hear but not see Windows.
One technique to fix this problem (is not the best) is to disassemble the laptop all the way to the mother board, isolate components with foil and use a heat gun (some people uses hair driers) and blow in to the video card for about 4 min. that will help some of the card components to stick together again. after you finish doing this put it together and test.
like I said before is not the best option because it will work for a few days maybe weeks and then it will die again plus you can damage other components this is common in 3rd world countries and cheap repair shops.
the other option is to replace the video card most likely ATI right? you have to take the laptop to a repair shop and ask if they have a rework station and a person who knows how to use it. ask if they can check and if needed replace video card some places would charge you about 150 to 250 depends on work quality that would last longer.

hi please try this solution, if it doesnt work could you please just clarify if the power light is coming on when you push the power button or is it just the charge light that is on when connected to a/c adaptor?

1 Removed the battery and power cord from the laptop
2 Press and hold the power button on the laptop for 30-60 seconds ( the longer the better)
3 Connect the powercord to the laptop but leave the battery out
4 Try and power on your laptop - if it turns on you are good to go just reinsert you battery and repeat if it happens again

My lenovo G460 laptop doesn't turn on ?


Did you have exhausted the battery power? If so, maybe the laptop can't turn on as soon as you plug in the ac adapter, as you can try to let the laptop charged for a time and then turn on the laptop to see if every thing is well.

Sony VAIO (VGN C25T) doesn't turn on after connecting aftermarket battery


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

My compacq CQ 60 laptop won't turn on? When I turned it off a couple of days ago, I turned it off in hibernation. I had a couple of programs still open. Today, when I press the power button, nothing...


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

I turn on my acer aspire laptop its power button lights up for 1 second but does't switch on my lappy how can turn on my laptop


first,please tell me,are there any beeps?
or maybe you have already done this, but remember that many laptops require that you remove the battery for about 30sec. as well as disconnect the AC power to reset them. Always try to do this when everything seems completely dead.
Please let me know if it's working or not,and thanks for using fixya
