Question about Lenovo 3000 N200 Intel Pentium Dual Core T2390 1.86GHz Notebook Laptops

1 Answer

Laptop doesn't start when power cord is plugged in

My laptop startup problem occurs only when the power cord is plugged in. Press the power button, the little green light goes on and there's just a bit of sound, then all goes silent and no startup. I hold the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the little green light, unplug the power cord, and then it will start up in battery mode, after which I plug in the cord again. This happens 80% of the time. Sometimes it will start up when the power cord is plugged in, but usually I have to disconnect it first. Does this mean there is something wrong with the power cord? Very puzzling.

Error 2000_0333


When does this error occur?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Will,

It sounds like the LCD on your screen may have burned out. Here's a few things you can try to verify if that is indeed the case:.

1. Unplug the power cord and take the battery out of the laptop. Then, press and hold the power button in for at least 30 seconds. That will drain the residual power from the system. Then, plug back in only the power cord - the battery should still be out, then try to turn the computer on. See if any video occurs at all. If the screen is entirely blank after a few minutes, go ahead an unplug the power cord again to turn off all the power to the unit.

2. Put back in the battery and power cord, and plug an external monitor or projector into the laptop. Turn the laptop on and then close the lid immediately after pressing the power button. See if any video will appear on an external video source. (IE monitor or projector). If video does show on the external monitor, then open the LCD screen back up and see if any video shows there.

3. If the video does not show on an external monitor at all, try the hot keys/function keys to swap the video output. (On your model of laptop if should be the F4 key.)

4. Also try the screen brightness keys. Press and hold F3 to increase the brightness on your laptop.


If these steps all fail - then most likely, the LCD is dead. You will need to either call HP to set up a return to depot repair - or contact a certified technician to repair the laptop for you. The number to call HP is: 866-234-1377. (This can be expensive if your laptop warranty is expired.)

I hope this helps you out!

Hi, how to resolve ibm thinkpad t43p on startup with black screen


It could be a faulty battery. Remove the battery & try to power up the laptop.
If the laptop did not power up after removing the battery, then notice the power receptacle where you plug the power adapter's cord to the laptop. While plugging the power cord in, notice if there is a spark occurring at the power receptacle. If the spark occurs, then disconnect internal drives & connectors one at a time until subsystem with short is identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace the motherboard. If the spark did not occur, then inspect the boards for burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections, or unseated cards.

My HP Compaq nx 6110 freezes afta the HP invent screen and doesnt go beyond that, and if i plug the adapter the system boots automatically but not beyond the HP invent screen. Please help.


Hello

Press and hold "CTRL," "ALT" and "Delete" at the same time. Wait and see if a prompt window loads. If one does you can select the program causing the crash and close it. This allows you to return to using the laptop.

Push and hold the power button until the system turns off. Typically, you need to hold the power button down for a few moments before the laptop shuts down.

Remove the power cord from the laptop if the power button does not turn the computer off. Occasionally this can occur, in which case you need to find an alternative way of cutting the power.

Flip the laptop over if the power button is not turning the computer off. Find the battery compartment on the bottom of the laptop and remove it from the computer. Momentarily the computer shuts down. Leave the battery out for a few moments.

Insert the battery back into the computer and press the power button. Shortly, the computer restarts and begins to load the operating system.


press F1 at start up to check the bios for power management settings as perhaps there is a conflict to the settings in Windows. Also I would check what is running in startup (msconfig) and leave nothing but essential antivirus and antispyware. I have seen Norton or MacAfee come up and cause this on several HP Laptops until I uninstalled every last bit of it

also ensure the laptop is in a roomy place a overheating could also be the cause
