Either you are out of charge or your battery has failed,or the power switch might not be properly laid out and got slightly displaced thus creating a resistance for boot up. I had the same issue with my dell laptop. You must get it serviced thats the best way to solve it

Is the battery working? Does the same thing happen when plugged to AC outlet? If so, you're probably better buying a new laptop than paying to fix it (especially if it's old).

How to change the function of the power button/change what happens when power...

People have different needs and thus , here I will show you how to change what happens when you press the power button on your desktop computer in windows.


Go to your start menu and select "Run"
Type in Powercfg.cpl
Under the advanced tab you will be able to select what happens when you press the sleep or power button and what happens when you close the lid of your laptop if applicable.



Since the run command is not visible by default in Windows Visa and later , there is a bit of a longer way to get to the settings.

If you would like to put your run command back on your start menu , please read my tip : Where has my run command gone

Go to Control Panel
Go to System and Security
Go to Power Options


Then select "Choose what the power buttons do"


In this window , you can select from the drop down list , what your power buttons should do when pressed.

Please remember to rate this tip if you found it helpful.

Kind Regards

Press SET BUTTON and at the same time, the appliance you want to set( TV, VCR,Aux...etc). The LED should stay on.. then press on the SET BUTTON again ... the led will blink fast... then press ( in front of TV, of else).. the POWER BUTTON to see what happens, if nothing happens, then press the +CHANNEL BUTTON once, and press power again. Repeat this until it turn off. Then press the appliance button (VCR,TV,AUX, etc...), this will stop the LED to blink and your appliance will be set.

I have a km630mab that doesn't energise the water valve at start up The third light on the board lights up but nothung else happens. If I hold up the float in the float switch the compressor comes on in...

check to see that you are getting the proper voltage to the solenoid. If you are, the valve coil is bad and need to replace entire valve. If not, check up stream voltage and determine where you are loosing it.
