Here you can try the power drain
For the power drain you have to unplug the battery and power cord from the laptop
then press and hold the power button for 40 sec without battery and power cable.
After 40 sec connect only the battery back to laptop, then try to turn on the computer, if its turing on then it happened only because of the excess the static power

Still having the issue then u have to update the BIOS from the website supprt.gateway.com
Then provide the serial number to the website and then download the latest BIOS and flash it.
you will be reciving a readme file where u can get the details, how to flash
Hope this will fix the issue

Acer extensa 4220 will only boot without cmos battery?


OK, wait just a minute. You're telling me that you took the laptop apart to get to the CMOS Battery (which is on the motherboard), put it back together and have been doing this process with the cmos battery in and out? Are you sure you don't mean the battery that is on the bottom of the laptop?

If it boots with the cmos battery out that means you have to go into setup and set the date and time and possibly some other parameters every time because that little batter controls the computer's memory.

My Lenovo 3000-N500(Type 4233-79G) (1.5 Yrs Old) will not boot from Battery or Power Adaptor. Both power sources are OK & when both power sources plugged on to this machine, this laptop displays...


Do any lights come on when you press the power button? If not, did you get all the cables reconnected properly? If lights come on or fans come on when you press the power button, then it sounds like the screen has gone bad. That is the symptoms you are describing.

IBM -t21 does not boot (all the time)


I am wondering about the environment in which you normally use this unit, which is heat sensitive, and
which, after it cools off a bit will work as you say after it is allowed to dissipate heat after use.

Make sure the space in which it used is not overheated and preferably air-conditioned. Try to maintain
room temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit or lower down to a minimum of 40 degrees.

Sony Vaio wont boot


Hm, maybe your bios battery is dead. Try to buy a new one, and boot than boot it. A bios battery is usually under the keyboard.

Mercedes e class cannot open the boot


I have a e320 2003 model, the same has happened to me. I wondered if it could be the fuse but couldn't find a fuse that managed the boot.....
This problem is identical to the other post "boot wont open electronicaly by the boot release latch above the number plate, the boot release button inside the car or the key fob! I have to use the manual key to mechanically open it now."

Acer Aspire 5315 won't boot, black screen


I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.

Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up

Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.

Did the following:

1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see http://www.insidemylaptop.com/ for details). (4 screws)

2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)

3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.

4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.

DAMN I'M GOOD!

Laptop will not boot if battery is installed


Have you tried going through the setup screen and selecting the default values for the BIOS? Usually that is necessary any time the battery power is lost.

When i Power up my Laptop it wont boot!


Ooooh! That was not a smart thing to do.You may have shorted something out.

Try this:

Make sure it is unplugged.
Remove the battery.
Remove the hard drive again.
Hold down the power button for at least 60 seconds.
Replace the hard drive. Make sure it is seated properly.
Try booting.

If the power light comes on but the laptop will not boot you may have fried your hard drive.
