Can you describe the symbols that are next to the lights that are still lit?
If your laptop is still attached to mains power (ie your power pack that feeds DC voltage to your laptop) the battery pack may be still charging (indicated by a light) The battery pack is internal to your laptop and this powers your laptop when the power pack is not connected to mains.
Try disconnecting your mains power and see if a light goes off. If it does then that light is the light which indicates charging is in progress.
Other lights that are typical to laptops are:
a. hard drive activity (usually lights when the hard drive is being used) Usually has an adjacent symbol which looks like a metal can or cylinder.
b. bluetooth (wireless connection to other bluetooth devices such as cell phones, other bluetooth devices such as another computer) Adjacent symbol looks like two triangles side by side.
c. sleep (usually lit when your laptop goes to sleep and saving power) This may be covered by the power on lamp mentioned below, and the power light may flash to indicate the laptop is in sleep mode to save battery power.
d. power on (lights when your laptop is ON)
e. battery charging (as described above). There is often a symbol adjacent to this light that looks like a small battery.
Good luck,

The "on" light on the front of my sony Vaio laptop continually flashes red when laptop is turned off


My question is the laptop turned all the way off when you go to shutdown do you click shutdown? Because it may show this light if the laptop is not turned all the way off. Also does it only do this when its plunged in? Some time there is a light to indicate the laptop is charging.

cheers best of luck

Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC won't power on


Hi! I do understand that you are having the problem on the laptop turning on. Try another option, turn off laptop, remove cables and battery, press and hold power button for 10 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Then turn it on. If the laptop did not turned on, remove the power cable and turned on the laptop. If still didn't, remove the battery and insert the power cable. If still did not work then check if there lights flashed on the laptop when turning it on. If still does not, then you need to contact the pc manufacturer for repair and possible replacement. Otherwise, if there is light on the laptop, then there might be a problem either the battery or the power cable itself. If there is light on the laptop but no power cable, most likely the monitor did not work simply because the battery works due to the fact that there is light on the laptop. On the other hand if there is light when plugging in the power cable on the laptop, then you need to check and insert another battery if it works. Otherwise you need to replace the battery...

Laptop won't start-up


Can you tell me if the status lights on the power adapter and/or the battery turns on? Because you are telling me the status lights only stay on for 30 seconds, this should be a power connection problem.

One other possibility: can you tell me the climate environment of where you use your laptop?

I have a Acer aspire 6920G laptop. Now i want to turn on the side blue lights during battery mode. Because when i use the laptop in battery mode this turned off.. Any body has any idea??


at battery mode....you cannot turn on the blue lights because the battery is low at that time....due to that it will not turn on the blue at that time....if you want to turn on blue lights during battery mode when you use your laptop in battery mode then the only way is to charge your laptop when your laptop is in battery mode.....there is no other way

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
