Hp dv5 not charging or booting up

Try this,

remove the battery and try with the ac adapter. Generally we trying to see if its battery or ac problem. Laptop should start cause the source of the power is the 120v electricity converted for laptop use through the adapter.

If its still not starting, then its adapter issue, just buy another one from a local computer store or amazon according the model of the laptop

My acer aspire one pav70 went into hibernating mode . how do i get it out of hibernation

It could have gone into hybernation for more than one reason.
Either it has been programmed to or the battery is low. Either way pressing the power button momentarily will get it out, if the power supply is plugged in or the battery is charged.
To remove the hybernation option, right hand mouse click on the battery icone on the desktop and change you power settings.
Hope that helps.

Have Toshiba Equium L300, has just stopped working, no power getting to laptop. can anyone advise if this is abttery or power cable? cheers

Remove the battery and plug in the charger(Power Cord).
Try turning on the computer.
If it starts, its an issue with the battery.
Battery may not have charge or the computer is not charging the battery.
Try replacing the battery before checking the computer.
If not, it can be either the computer or the charger.
But try checking it with a different charger before taking the computer for repair.

My laptop is not switching to AC mode even when plugged into Ac Power outlet. I work on battery mode and after full battery drain, the laptop goes into hybernation...once into hybernation it starts...

1. You may possibly have a faulty power supply adapter. Contact the manufacturer and see if there are any call backs on the power adapter for you laptop unit
2. you may also have a damaged connector at the laptop connection. This will require repair by a technician.

This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge.
Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.

Battery is low / critical please switch to power

ok, how old is your laptop battery?, if it is over 2or 3 years and you always have it connected to your laptop while the power adapter is plugged to the wall when you use it, it must be time to replace it.
While on the other hand, if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2, then there's an issue problem between the Operative system and the battery itself. Here's a hotfix posted on the Microsoft's website and you should only use it if the problem meets this description . Good luck.

Samsung V25 Laptop When it is powered up nothing is showing on the screen although the power light is on and you can hear a noise. This has happened before and it just came on.

One way to make sure the system is still working, remove the Batery, then plug the power adapter only and turn the computer back on, normally if the laptop goes into Hybernation mode and the battery is low on power this can happen. If that fixes the system then you can do a safe shutdown and re-install the battery and turn your laptop on and it should come on, the fact that you mentioned this has happened before makes me believe it is Hybernation issue. Good Luck.
