    Cheers pal

    I did try that unfortunately. Its actually my g/f's laptop who acquired it from Germany so i can assume there is going to be some discussion as to whether it can be serviced under the warranty here in the UK. Sent an email regarding this to LG today.

    Another question should any one stumbling upon this know the answer. I have a data recovery device, taking the seagate 5300i 160gb hard drive out, the adaptor is really hard to take off, damaged it a little trying so thought leave it. Does anyone have a solution to this?

    Thanks again

  • remove battery.
  • connect power adopter.
  • and make on.
If it works then check your battery, it might be damaged.

Please post your feed-back.

Battery not recognised/not charging

Turn the computer off, unplug it, take the battery out. Then hold the power button down for 10 - 15 seconds. Plug the ac adapter back in, but do not put the battery in yet. Boot the computer, then shut it back down. Put the battery back in then boot it again. It should recognize the system now.

Samsung N102SP doesn't boot

Sounds like a Ram or processor failure. Any beeps?
Take the battery out and pull the power. Wait 2 min and put the power back in and try to boot. That is a start.

I have This problem with my LG, it's not turning on normal, i have to try more than a few times, i hit the powwer bottom, many many times until the TV is On, I do not Know what part to replace, No more...

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Normally, when you switch on the power, it would require you to wait a few seconds before the power is regulated round the whole system and can power on. If you try to put it on right away after switching on the power, it would refuse to turn on. The only way you can put it on immediately is by using the remote control.

Laptop doesnt boot and the monitor doesn't switch on. When we switch on the laptop the processor runs for few seconds and then shuts down and the system tries to restart itself..


You can try the following steps:

1. Unplug the power from the laptop and remove the battery then press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds

2. Put the battery back in, turn on the laptop without plugging the power to the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue)

3. Remove the battery and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, after that, plug the power cord and turn on the laptop (if this didn't resolve the issue)

4. Remove the power cord and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, disconnect the Hard drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnec the hard drive

5. Remove the Optical Drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnect the optical drive

6. Remove the memory chip, if you have 2 memory chips installed in the 2 memory slots (remove both of them) now test each one of the memory to each slots turning on the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue) Put the memory chip back in

7. Reseat the CPU and try to make sure that it's installed properly. Turn on the laptop and test if it's gonna work (If this didn't resolve the issue)

8. Reseat the power cords coming from the power supply of the laptop and test the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue)

9. Disconnect everything and just leave the CPU installed and turn on the laptop.

10. If all else fails, there's a big possibility that the problem may be with the power supply or the motherboard of the laptop.

(Note: you may try to clean your computer if there is a large amount of dust. You may try to remove the CMOS battery)

sounds like you may have an intermittent memory problem try a diagnostic cd like ultimate boot cd other possibilities are bad power supply or motherboard issue.but since you didn't say sometimes when you hit the button nothing happens.i will guess it's not power supply.eliminate.memory cpu hardrive issues first then we'll go from there.
