I shut down the laptop at once and i turned it on immediately.so only power light is on and the computer is not working.only black screen is seen.


Try this :

1. unplug the ac adapter and remove the battery .
2. press and hold power button for a minute
3. now put the battery back and plug in ac adapter
4. turn on the laptop now

it should work.

if not, try removing hard drive and memory modules then reinstall them back.

if the issue persists, your motherbord has gone bad.

Hi, i'm having sony vaio (VGN NW380F) laptop. I bought this laptop just 1 year back. I'm having problem since last week, the laptop gets power off automatically. Its not specific to Operating system or any...


It could be a problem with the motherboard, basically because the power supply to the laptop is built in to the motherboard. I would first check the battery though. Sometimes this can happen with a bad battery, even if the laptop is plugged in. Try removing the battery and using the laptop while it's plugged in with no battery.

If it works fine with no battery and power cord connected, I would get a new battery.

If it is still a problem with the battery out, it's likely it could be a problem with the power supply that's part of the motherboard. If that's the case, I would try to call Sony and see if it is covered under warranty....or if they have had problems with this. With a year old laptop, this should not be failing like this.

Please provide instructions on how to install 512mb of memory on my averatec 3150h laptop computer. Year of laptop 1997. This is a upgrade to existing memory


Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Flip the computer upside-down.
Look at the various "bay" covers.
Under one of them will be a slot for RAM.
Take a screwdriver, and remove the cover.
You might either find existing RAM (one stick or two),
or you might find an empty slot.

Now, the difficult part is purchasing RAM that will be compatible with your "antique" (1997) laptop. I highly advise that you take the computer, the battery, and the power-supply to a computer-store, so that they can sell you "compatible" memory -- the "wrong" memory won't fit, or won't work, or will only add 1/4 or 1/2 the amount of RAM present on the stick.

Power supply flashes green and no lights on laptop


Remove battery pack, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then put battery pack back in and restart pc. This should take care of it. A bad memory stick can cause problems like this as well.

Acer 5570 - Power switch is not working


Hi,
Try removing the power supply (from the wall) and the battery pack. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug the mains power (from the wall) back in and then press the power button. It should work. Then you can replace your battery pack. Don't know why it works but it has worked for me in the past. Good luck!

Attempting to remove the switch cover but the side of the cover (silver) dont move Any Ideas


This is the second time I have responded to this question and hope that this time it is recorded.

1st. I don't know which switch cover you are in question of.
2nd. The only switch cover is the panel where you'll find the Led's or the Touch Panel.
3rd. If this is the panel in which you are asking, let go on. ( If not let's not)
4th. Disconnect all power to unit.
5th. Remove the battery and any media you may have in the unit.
6th. Lay unit on its back (lable up, where it can be seen)

Their are 2- Covers which can be removed. Not knowing why yo want to remove the cover, does not help. So, I will explain how to remove the Touch Led Cover.
7th. With unit on its back and Lable facing you. Please find the first row of rex screws on top of battery Bank. You will see six but only 4 of the six need to be removed.
From left to right 1st screw Yes, second screw NO, third Yes, fourth Yes, fifth NO, six Yes.
The two screws remaining are for the LCD hanging and you don't need to remove them.
8th. Know that you have removed the top set, you can remove the next set,
which are silver and cant be missed.Remove these 3-Silver screws and flip unit over.
Open the cover and before you attempt to remove this cover, you should know of 3- items underneath which are very fragile.
Their are 2-Ribbon cables (12pin) and 1 Mic cable
With your hands on both sides you should be able to lift cover upwards, allowing it to fall over towards you.
9th. You will see 1 4-pin black plug and 2 12 pin ribbon cable connectors.
My advise is to treat this area like it was eggs on grass.
To completely remove these 3 connections
1. disconnect black 4-pin connector
2. Their is a thin plastic brown clip on the top of the connector, which lifts up only about 5 mm
which isn't much!
Remove the two ribbon cables and you are their.
Re-assumable the reverse.
Hope this finds you in good health, in mind and computer.

Dead motherboard


bad news - an overheated F500 is a really expensive paperweight. All you can really do is try and source a new motherboard and hope the CPU and RAM didn't go the way the board did...

Power cuts off for acer aspire 5100


Hi,
I,d suspect your problem will lie with, the systems CPU ( Processor ) or a component Overheating on the systems Motherboard. I would,nt suspect the Power Supply personally. unless your batterys not charging.
