I have problems in sarting up my EI System laptop ,the power light is on but no display on screen


The power light will only show whether power is reaching the machine. The important light is the hard drive activity light and perhaps the wireless activity light.

If the power light is all you have you should take your laptop to the computer doctor but if the hard drive light shows activity it would be worth connecting it to a separate monitor and if it then produces a display you might be able to figure out what has happened.

Does the machine boot up? Are you able to use the computer? Green light where? Sometimes the green light could be the hard drive's activity.

Acer Aspire one notebook wont work! Help!


First off, does it power on....does the power on light show on the laptop when it is plugged into the wall outlet. If it does power on, do you hear the fan running and the hard drive clicking? Can you see if the hard drive indicator lights are active, they will be next to the power activity light. If you cannot see any lights at all, try another charger, the one you have may be faulty. If you can see a power light, but the laptop wont power on, then you very well have a motherboard issue...or your ac adapter is not putting out enough volts to actually power the system completely. Check power first, then think motherboard issue. You don't have to have a good battery in it if you are plugged into the wall outlet.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop computer and I'm experiencing a problem with the orange battery light flickering continuouslyl; though the green battery light is displayed. Thank you


I think you may be referring to the green power light and the orange hard drive activity light.you should have a power icon located on the bottom bar on the desktop near the clock that indicates battery power.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.
