If this happens even if your laptop is plugged in to a power source it could be that your battery is dead and you need to replace it

Hp pavilion elite, system fan failure green light on in back

Is that a SATA drive? Try plugging it into another desktop computer. You will need to change SECURITY SETTINGS for the users folders in order to access the data. I can help you going as far as possible in this case.

My toshiba a60 has been acting up for the last month, and has finally stopped turning on yesterday. Every time I tried to turn the laptop on, the blue power light flicks on for one sencond, and turns off....

moz-screenshot-1.jpgFirst thing to do is to disable the option that computer automatically restarts when a fatal error/system failure occurs. There is an option inside windows for that, but in this case we can't do that. So what you need to do is to press F8 before the Windows XP logo appears right after the BIOS screen (just like what you do when you want to boot in safe mode). This screen will appear:

How do I set mt toshiba back to original setting

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.
Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.
2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.
3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.
4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.
5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.
6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.
7) Click Next to Start recovery.
I hope you find this step by step solution helpful for you.

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline desktop with Windows 7 professional,and I can't get into the bios settings to enable hardware virtualisation in order to run it in XP mode

Hey mate for BIOS you need to tab F10 key at the time of starting computer.

I mean you need to power on your computer and and after pressing the power button from next second onwards I want you to keep tabbing F10 key.

It will help you to open up BIOS.

Take Care

Enjoy :-)

Stuck on screensaver

Is your computer booting up? when you say screen saver, Im assuming that you have gotten to windows. You might want to reinstall your operating system to solve this problem. Dell computers are equipped with factory OS image. try to reboot your system and after seeing the dell logo, quickly press the CTRL key + F11, this will work if you have windows XP. If you have windows vista. press the F8 button several time if you see the DELL logo. This will lead you to the boot menu. select repair computer then use the Factory Image Restore option

Laptop will not switch on

Shut down the system, disconnect every thing you can possibly disconnect and remove the battery.

Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Reconnect A/C power and try to boot up.

If no change, remove the CD/DVD drive and if you feel comfortable, the hard drive. Reconnect power and try to turn on again.

If you still get nothing, check for any loose screws on the bottom of the case and snug them (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN). Just finger tight so the screw is not turning loosely. Remove and reseat the RAM. If you get no power, remove the RAM and reconnect power to see if you get beeps from the system.

Let me know if you need to go further than this.

My toshiba satellite p200-140 laptop will not start up. the power button lights up but nothing else happens. it was working fine last night

My laptop had a similar problem. I left my laptop running and some time later when I went back to my laptop, it would not startup. The power light seemed to be on but the laptop would not function. I tried several things like pressing on the power key for some time without any success and also tried all sorts of alternate buttons and sequences.

I resolved the problem by first disconnecting the power cord then by removing the battery for 5 minutes. I then re-installed the battery then connected the power adapter.

As soon as I turned the power button 'ON', the laptop booted up again.

Hope this works out for you.
