Re:My laptop turns on and then it turns right off!!!...

Is there any way I can fix it myself rather than bringing it in a shop. Or a cheap way to fix it like buying a new cpu fan or some heating compound? Please advise....

Dv1000's have a known issue with the heat sink fan. the ball bearing in the fan (which is what allows the blades on the fan to spin) will "pop" out making it so the fan is not able to spin.

good news is its incredibly easy to fix. unfortunetly to get to it you will need to completely disassemble the computer to get to the heat sink fan.

once youre there all you need to do is squeeze the middle of the fan from both sides. you should hear or feel a little pop or click.

reassemble and enjoy.

Wont turn on

I had a co-worker bring me his Asus A55a laptop that would not power on. The problem turned out to be the small power control board right under the power button. The parts was only $15.00 plus shipping. The local geek shop wanted $180.00 ( 3 weeks turn around time).

Toshiba Laptop L655dS5050 will not boot unless I wrap in a towel to heat up

That is a bad situation to be in out of warranty; There is no easy quick or cheap fix for this; This would be something for a Local PC Shop to fix unless you are savvy enough, and have the precision hand of a surgeon. You can conceivably fix it yourself.

Long story short; You are correct; My first guess is a broken solder point somewhere on the motherboard or Power Supply;

Power Supplies are a cheap fix, but if you do not find the problem in the Power Supply you will have to replace the motherboard.

Most local PC shops will suggest buying a new laptop because the cost of repair if it's the motherboard is nearly equal to a new laptop.


Find an alternative source of power to test the laptop in other words eliminate the AC Adapter and battery from the equation; Test using a different AC Adapter only, see if the Laptop boots up; If it does, it's more than likely either a bad battery or bad AC Power Adapter.

It's a shot in the dark but the Power Jack may be loose and when power is applied to it the heat buildup may secure the connection to the motherboard which allows you to boot. (Although this would be a first time explanation regarding this) Usually power jack issues are intermittent start ups. Replacing of the power jack; cheap, you can buy the part yourself; again if you are good with soldering you can fix it yourself as well; You will have to disassemble the laptop completely to do this. This repair is expensive at a local PC shop in excess of $100-200 or more.

A motherboard replacement can cost in excess of $300 or more at a local PC shop.

Hope this helps or at least guides you in the right direction.

Computer does not want to turn on and turns right off

Your motherboard is damaged, or the device that controls the electrical current is damage.

You can either fix it yourself, or bring it to a shop for repair.

If you choose to fix it yourself, you can order the parts on eBay, and find a guide on taking it apart on Google or Youtube.

I apologize :(

I hope this helps :)

It's also possibly that your battery or charger is at fault :o

I have a laptop OS win7. I hav internet over LAN port. My laptop has wifi. How can i share my internet with laptop wifi. i hav a mobile which has wifi. My question is how can i share my internet through...

It sounds to me like you only have a cable/adsl modem bringing in your internet connection. To share your internet with other wifi devices you will need to buy a Wireless router. Be aware you can buy adsl and cable routers depending on what your broadband provider has given you. Take these details into a computer shop who will advise you of the right type of router to buy. Dont buy cheap, go for something like a netgear router.

On my laptop there is a small button near the hinge end that switches the display off when the top is closed. Make sure yours is coming up. It is something you can check easily.

A battery will charge as you use it . Go aheead and plug it in go about your laptop use as normal it does not need be off to charge the laptop any faster
Its using AC power to run and will still charge the battery

Try this first beofe you bring it to a service shop EBAY sells every type of battery ever made & Cheap too ! but check for warranty in EBAY bought battery look for return 100 percent guarantee on battery sales

Acer 5930 dead graphic card can it be fixed? or is it fixed to motherboard

Most laptops graphic cards are built right to motherboard. You can probably bring it to computer repair shop and they can solder new capacitors on it. But they don't make them seperate where a person could swap it out.

Laptop screen.

I think you should bring it to the computer shop. If the spill got inside your laptop, it will be risky to remove the laptop parts and clean it all by yourself.
