If you do not see lights on the laptop when you turn it on,

  • it may be the power pack, as once the battery is flat it will not boot.
  • some power packs have a light on when they are being use, have it check .
if the power pack is ok, and you see nothing on the screen when you try to boot up, then it is not posting.
  • (power on self test) so its a hardware problem. try the following :
  • remove the memory from the back of the laptop,and if you have more than one stick ,swap them around as you may have a bad one,
  • you will have to remove one or more screws to do that.
  • also make sure the battery is seated correctly and you have the power cord connected and turned on.
  • if you only have one stick of ram,and can't beg borrow or steel one from your mates, take ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you.
  • if the ram is ok return to that shop with laptop to have them check it out for you.
  • as it could be many things that has caused this problem.
good luck

My RCA Opal MP3 wont show up on my computer and it wont charge


This is battery problem, since it work with your computer directly, you no the computer power supply charge it directly so all you need do now is to get another battery and make sure you charge the new battery for some time before you power on.

Compliments and best of luck

My sidekick 3 wont go past BATTERY LOW! PLEASE ALLOW DEVICE TO ..


turn off your phone. then remove the battery for 5 minutes. also make sure your charger is not plugged in. then put the battery pack into the phone. it should clear up. also you might have over charged the battery. another solution is to buy a new battery pack and if that does not work your phone is acting up on battery basis

Lens is stuck so Camera does not turn on


The battery packs in these units dont have a very long "shelf life" meaning when you charge the battery you need to use it within a few days or it will loose charge. Have you tried a fresh charged battery? They are very power hungry devices and the more advanced they get the more power they need. How old is this unit? how many charges have you put on the pack? it may be time for a second pack. An emergency backup pack good power is key nowdays.
