    I can't tell if it the same issues I keep on seeing over and over I would suggest you try this but I need more info to confirm.



    Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.

    I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.

    From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.

    Did they give you any further details, a quote form with a list of the faults that lead them to the conclusion it was the motherboard?



    Are there any lights that come on when you press the power button?



    Really need as much info as possible to help any of us diagnose your problem.

Then let the repairman do the work. As long as he has a replacement motherboard and he can make your PC like new and work again. But think about the price if it is too high that you can buy a new one. Much better to have a new one right?

Bought a used Samsung R540 laptop It shuts down after about 20 min on battery Or when plugged in. Power settings we also changed but still happens. Have chance to return & xchange. Is it worth fixing


no-- take it back and exchange it
the problem may be in the mother board or chip overheating and the bios is shutting it down for protection

Boots up fine runs for awhile then shuts down for no apparant reason.


Most times if computer runs and then shuts down it is mother board over heating. It shuts down to prevent damage. Try to clean you mother board fan and also make sure no dust in the exhaust part on the bottom of the computer. You can clean it with air can for computers just make sure you hold it upright because if it is sideways or upside down it will put out freezing air and it can damage you computer. Hope this helps.

The satelite my laptop was connected with was hit by thunder and my laptop automatically shuts down and does not turn on again..how can i fix this problem?


Hi, this could be power surge problem, all you need do first is to remove the battery of your laptop and plug the charger directly to AC power supply, now try to power on, see if it comes up, if it doesn't,it means your laptop need to be taken to a technician to help check if the mother board is still good.

Compliments and wish you best of luck.

Dell e1505 shuts down all power sources when plugged in


HI, CHECK THE MEMORY CARD AND VIDEO CARD, FIRST UNPLUG THE PC REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THE RIGHT COVER SLIDE BACK THE COVER, YOU WILL SEE ON THE RIGHT UPPER SIDE OF THE MOTHER BOARD ONE OR TWO RECTANGLE LONG BOARD/CARD THAT IS MEMORY CARD, ON BOTH END IS A LOCKING TAB, BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE CARD ON LEFT HAND TOUCH THE MAIN FRAME OF THE PC THEN PUSH BACK THE LOCKING TABS TOWARD TO THE MAIN BOARD THE MEMORY BOARD/CARD WILL POP OUT. CLEAN THE CONTACTS OF THE MEMORY BOARD /CARD, REINSTALL IT BACK, IF THE PC DID NOT TURN ON .YOU NEED A POWER SUPPLY TO BE REPLACE.
MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE SAME POWER SUPPLY YOU HAVE ON PC. YOU CAN SEE THERE IS A LABEL ON THE POWER SUPPLY WHAT IS THE WATTAGE. HOPING THAT THIS MIGHT HELP YOU SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
