    I have the same problem. I turn the computer on and the blue light doesn't come on, only the orange one under the power button. However I can not get the computer to come back on so I can update anything. Anyone have suggestions?

Hi! Having some trouble with a friends laptop here. I have it on AC power and the battery is now charged (middle light has changed from amber to blue). So when I push the power button, the top light...


Hi.

Try unplugging AC power lead and then take out the laptops battery, plug the AC power lead back in and try turning it on, see what happens. If the laptop turns on then there is a problem with the battery.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.



Regards.

Blue power light does not come on when i turn the comp on


there is either a motherboard/cpu issue (worst case), or a power supply issue (best case, cheap and easy fix)...

without being there looking at it i can't really tell you more. if you happen to have a spare ATX power supply, open the machine and plug it in to the system instead of the old one to see what happens.

if you don't have a spare, you obviously have another working computer you're posting from so maybe borrow it's power supply and see what happens.

GT5220 won't turn on


My motherboard was replaced twice by the gateway people. Luckily I bought it at costco and it has a two year warranty through them because gateway didn't want to deal with me until costco techies made them. I have the same model and had the same problem

Fan is running, power button with blue light is off, cpu won't boot up


Your cpu might have died. As the computer is starting tap F8 and choose last known good configuration to see if you can get it started.

Computer isnt running


If that is the case your system need to check the battery for fault and does it happen with the power source too i fthe same problem check your processor fan if its bad when you on the system and is not blowing that might have cause the processor itself to get bad you will have to change this ones and then your system will be ok right rate this solution.

Cold water only very slowly trickles into the washer. Hot water works fine. Cold water has very good pressure and volume at all other sources in the house. The cold water hose at back of washer is clean...


there can be 3 reasons for this I will tell u the easiest way to test this first
Problem1)turn the water off at the blue tap fitting that is proberbly under your sink take the blue pipe off at the washer end and place it into the sink turn the blue tap back on if the water comes out quick then the problem is more then likely your cold water solenoid that is either slightly blocked were it fits to the washer,But if it doesnt come out quick then the other 2 problems are as follows.
Problem2)the blue tap that u turn the cold water on to the blue pipe undue the little screw in the middle of the tap and pull the blue fitting off now with a pair of pliers turn the square metal fitting that was under the blue fitting making sure that the end of the pipe is in the sink if it comes out quick then that is the problem the blue tap fitting is rounded off when ot should be square turn the water of and replace the pipe and turn the water back on the cold water should be better now.
Problem3)the blue tap that u turn the cold water pipe of at the copper pipe is blocked or it has a broken shut off valve inside it this will need replacing these are the only problems that it could be let me know if this is any help to u peter
