Due to its age you probably have to replace the motherboard battery and boot from the original install disks to set date and time for it to start back up again.

Hi! When I shut my computer down the lights do not


When you shut off your PC do you:
1) Give it enough time (could take from 1 minute to 10 minutes) to shut down completely (easy sign is if the fun continues to run or lights are on)?

2) Clicked Hibernate or Sleep OR closed your laptop screen before it completely finished shutting down (this could put the PC to sleep and it would remain on, so the lights would remain on, until you woke it by moving a mouse, flipping the screen back and forth for a bit or pressing the start button (not holding))?

3) Have it plugged in (depending on the model, a light might stay on if it is charging even if it is not on(probably not this one since you said it turns off after a Hard shutdown (don't do this since this damages your computer and will make it break down after continued use)))

Push and hold your monitor's POWER button until the monitor shuts off completely.

After it is shut off, press the POWER button again to turn it back on and the lock should be disabled.

Hp 6910p laptop wont turn off. Fan running. what gives?


Something is keeping it from shutting down. This could be caused by a faulty application or driver. My suggestion is to hold the power button down until the unit completely shuts down. Take out the battery, unplug the ac-adapter, attempt to power it on and then put the battery back in. Attempt to restart the computer.

Good Luck!

It's little computer may be scrambled, or its channels may be clogged with scale. You might try (1) unplugging the unit for several minutes to reset the computer; (2) descaling the unit with a vinegar solution.

I would need some more information to completely help you. When you say you walk away and the pc shuts down and starts back up, does it close down (reboot) or does it go into screen saver / sleep mode? What button did you push for the power button light to blink? Have you put the PC into sleep / hibernation mode by pressing the power button once.

My smartpot shut it self off and wont turn turn back on


try holding the reset button down, plugging it in, and then releasing it after maybe 5-10 sec.

if your familiar with computers.... try repeatedly pushing the reset button as you plug it in... kind of a total reset


other than that it sounds like a glitch.... how long have you had it.... Mmm, consider calling the company and explaining complete mechanical failure. Hey, you never know if you don't try. Happy Holidays... best of luck

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby


To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.


Also the following may be of interest.
You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate.
    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.
