Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

No response when i close the lid on my laptop on the hp ze5200 and it is still on, it wont come back to a working screen once the lid has been re-opened. I have to hold the power button for a few seconds to switch off then re-start. Is there something i can do about this as sometimes it looses things I want to use from the desktop. Any info would be great

You would have to change your settings in the power savings manager of the control panel. Are you sure want to do that?

  1. Start
  2. settings
  3. control panel
  4. Now if it is set up category view it would be under performance and maintenance, if under classic view
  5. power options
  6. advanced
  7. when cover is closed.

My laptop wont start


If you are sure that your charger and battery are working as usual. The possible cause is the laptop lid switch.

If it is broken, you may have power but your screen may not come on.
This is usually a little button or mechanism located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your screen when your lid is open or closed respectively.Normally the operator does not push this button. These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be fixed,more often they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to repair/replace it for you. Opening up laptops is a very delicate operation and much more difficult to repair than desktops. It may be worth it to spend the money for repair.

I connect my B130 to an external display using a vga cable. Both screens work. But I am unable to turn my laptop's screen off using Fn F8


the screen wont go off unless you use a docking station. Once you are docked, you can close the notebook lid and use the machine like a desktop: with all your cables hooked into the station itself.

All it's doing is showing the up bios screen when


Take out the battery and do a power drain.
Restart the notebook and try to go to BIOS. If you are able to access the BIOS, do a BIOS default by pressing F5 key and then save by tapping F10 key. DISCONNECT ALL THE EXTRA PERPHERALS CONNECTED TO THE PC. Still wont work, send it for a repair.
If unable to go to BIOS, turn off the notebook and turn it upside down, you will see a lid wich has round disc like symbols, open it and take out the HDD and put it back in, close the lid. Then open a lid which has a rectangular structure and then reseat the RAM, close the lid after the reseat. Restart the notebook, if not then you need to send it for repair.

Laptop screen goes dark.


Is your computer setup to go to sleep when you close the lid?

Click on start -->control panel-->power options and then check the option that says choose what closing the lid does. You have to change this setting to 'do nothing' if you want the computer to stay on when you close the lid.

HP pavilion dv2000 screen black


Maybe there are to many programs running in the background and thats interefering with the sleep function of the laptop cause it can't allocate enough memory to allow the screen to come back on.

in the search box in your start menu, type in msconfig and press enter. This will take you into the system configuration utility click on the startup tab and this will show you all the programs that are started up when you boot up into windows.

Go ahead an click on the button that says disable all, this will uncheck all of the boxes. Click on apply and then click on Ok and let the computer restart.

Once it restarts and you get back into windows, try again and you should be able to close the lid and then bring it back up and have the screen come back on like normal.

Locks screen when I close the lid on my hp pavilion dv9740us


computer has gone into hibernation. Best to shut that function off, and replace with standby.

If you want it to hibernate, press the power button once, and it should come back on to the log in screen.

Hp dv4000 screen problem


Sounds like its trying to go into sleep mode or standby or just turning the screen off.

This usualy happens because in the power options, the screen is set to shut off after say 5 minutes. It could be that the lid closed sensor is bad and it thinks your closing it and does this.

Try right clicking on the desktop, select properties, in the pop up box, select the scren savers Tab and at the bottom it should have a button for the power options.

Click that, in there you should see several new tabs partaining to your power options. one has some drop down boxes that lets you set what it does when the lid is close, when you press the power button and when you press the sleep button.

I would try turning the, " turn off screen option" to off and see if it still does it.

It usually says. 'When I close the lid to my laptop, i want it to: " then it will list the options.

Also turn off the standby settings if you want so it doesnt go into standby every time you walk away for 5 minutes.

Just set it how you want. but for now, just disable the close lid options so we can see if it still does it.

Good luck and let me know.
