Hi

You may need a new battery. I would download software to check the battery.

Does the computer start with the AC plugged in and the battery removed?

What type of Laptop Do You Have?

The flashing orange light could be the indicator to tell you that your wireless adapter is working and has a connection to your routericon1.png, if you are not wireless, press the button that is flashing and it will disable your wireless connection,to turn back on press it again.
Or there is another smaller orange indicator which tells you you are runing on battey and it is in need of charge

Acer aspire netbook wont turn on flashing white light on power button


Did you try to flash a new BIOS? If so, you might be in trouble and
need probably to reflash the new BIOS. (Look at Acer site for info).
But anyway try:

1. Push and hold the Power On switch for 4-6 seconds.
Try to Power On again.

2. If this does not work, do a Power Reset:
- Disconnect powersupply cable and pull out the battery.
- Hold the Power button for 60 seconds a few times.
- Place the battery and powercupply cable.
- Try to Power On.

Gatweway lap top button light up, but wont turn on


I'm afraid this sounds suspiciously like a motherboard problem. It would help to know what model etc, as some Gateway & EMachine model laptops have had extended warranties due to motherboard issues, or just go to Gateway.com and research it yourself.

Dropped lap top now wont boot up


press the fn key on laptop hold it down and then press the power key on the laptop. once u see any display on the screen you will get some tests running on the screen. The system will show you the error message which u need to note down. else you can do a Flea Power on your laptop. Remove the adapter and the battery and then press the power button and hold it down for 30 seconds then connect the battery and adapter back and try to turn on the laptop. See if the magic works for you

My charge light constantly flashes orange and my C600 won't turn on at all. I hold the power button and all the lights turn off. I got nothing. Just a blankscreen.


When you say charge light, was that the battery led light that you were referring to or the power button?

If it is the battery led light, try this:
Try to power on your laptop without the battery in your laptop.
take out the battery and just use the ac adapter, if it works fine then there could be a problem with your battery.

If is the power button that is flashing orange, then try to power cycle laptop.
turn off laptop.
take out the battery and the ac adapter.
then while those are out, you hold down power button for atleast 10-15 seconds.
put back the power source and check the led again.

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start


Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.

Prob. 1unit shuts off by itself/ prob 2.back is cracking again


IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THAT YOUR UNIT IS OVER HEATING WHICH IS VERY COMMON WITH CHEAPER LAP TOPS. YOU CAN GO GET A LAP COOLER FROM STAPLES OR A LOCAL ELECTRONIC STORE THEY ARE NOT VERY MUCH. DID YOU DROP IT?
