Question about HP G60-120US Laptop

1 Answer

I cannot get my laptop to turn on. I don't know if the plug isn't working properly or if the laptop itself isn't working. The white light on the front of the laptop flashes when I push on the power button. Any ideas?

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Hi friend , make sure you have install the proper driver of it, if you don't have the driver or you don't know what is the exact driver, then my suggestion is you can install windows 7 operating system then i am sure it will work, or you can check it out by connecting a different computer where windows 7 is installed. make sure the usb port is working fine also.

Hi, Easy way to get over this is run a cable from working fog light to none working fog light this should then work. Only other way must be the left fog light is not earthed properly run earth wire to the vehicles body. Please give feedback at crossflowspeed@hotmail.co.uk Thanks, Malcolm Campbell.

How do you know if the magneto is bad


If you have a spark, you don't have a "Magneto" problem, Check the air filter and the 2 stoke oil tank. And check that the spark plug is wet, if it isn't firing and the plug isn't wet, you don't have any fuel getting to the combustion chamber.

The ASUS sdre-08d1s-u is not burning cds. Common problems? fixes?


I have the exact same unit, and after about 100 burns the little guy gave out on me. If it isn't burning, I would recommend going into your device manager on your computer and checking to see if your USB hub is functioning properly. In that doesn't work, or you don't find any issues, try plugging it into a different machine to check and see if your computer is the one at fault. Often, the motor itself is the damaged unit, rather than the internal workings, so the computer says it's working fine, and lo and behold, the drive won't work. If that doesn't work out for you, then unfortunately it sounds like you're out of luck, and it would be cheaper to just purchase a new one.

Timer rotates but whenever it reaches the tripper to turn the lights on it gets stuck there. It's like there isn't enough power to rotat the switch to turn the lights on. Have checked the switch...


The clock motor gets weak and sticks on the tripper and then stops working.
Possible solution: Some people report they disassembled clock motor, cleaned the gears and added a bit of vaseline or white grease to gears because they get dirty.
Then afterward, you might try duct tape to seal unit from dust
Others report they got the clock motor apart and didn't mark parts and take photos along the way, and forgot how tiny gears went back.
My experience with clock motors, and motors in general, is when they slow down, they overheat and don't last much longer.
There are no replacement clock motors for ML series power packs, which is shortcoming since Intermatic makes replacement clock motors and modules for many of their products.

Work-around: Set timer to override, then plug power pack into cheap wall timer.

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

Battery will not charge


The three likeliest candidates are battery, A/C adaptor and laptop power socket. Battery ? Batteries typically last between 1.5 to 4 years, depending on design and use. They are not safely repairable by users or most computer shops despite what you may read. If you remove the battery from the laptop and can run just off the A/C adaptor then the battery is probably the cause. The next test would be to use the battery in another laptop to see if the same problem occurs there. If it does then the battery is defective and needs to be replaced. If the battery does work then it?s likely the charging circuitry in the laptop itself is defective. A/C adaptor - Even though the green LED on the adaptor is on it can still be the cause of your problem. Inspect the cord, especially the jack that plugs into the laptop. The jack typically takes a lot of abuse and it?s common for the cord to be damaged at the base of the laptop jack itself. Often the damage isn?t visible; however, wiggling the wire at the base of the jack can cause the laptop charging LED to come on and off. The only way to truly test the adaptor is to measure the voltage coming out of the jack under a load. The last part is very important; simply measuring the voltage with a meter does not accurately test the adaptor. An easier alternative if you have the option is plugging a working adaptor into your laptop. Laptop power socket - Most times when the power socket in the laptop goes it?s due to a broken solder joint or a broken socket. Inserting the A/C adaptor jack in the socket and wiggling it back and forth can often cause the charging LED on the laptop to turn on and off. If that happens then the socket or the board it connects to needs to be replaced. That requires a major disassembly and is usually beyond the typical user. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
