On middle.factory rest toshiba satellite radius my house power went no bootable.system device insert boot disk press any do I finish reset.or start.over or what now??

Software can soon get damaged or corrupted when there is a power cut and sensitive electronics easily damaged by any surge or transient on the mains supply, often caused when the power is interrupted.

I have never had much success with boot discs, though if you have one it could be worth a try. If I was faced with your problem I would elect to format the drive and reload the operating system and software.
If there are any files you want to keep that weren't backed up they could be saved if the drive is still healthy by fitting it into another computer as a slave drive.

Compaq Presario F700 Won't Turn On

Assuming the unit is plugged in, this could be an issue with the power supply, or an issue where the cord connects to the laptop. If the power connector on the back of the laptop is secure / doesn't feel loose or damaged, you may want to simply get a replacement power supply from a local electronics store. Be sure to take the make and model information of the laptop and the power supply with you to the store.

Power issue

The Acer TravelMate 3000 is a laptop intended for business travellers who need the extra muscle of a fast processor and dual batteries. With mobile computers, it is very important to have not only a good rechargeable battery, but a solid power supply that needs very little maintenance to be able to keep operating. Losing a power supply or battery on a long trip can be extremely inconvenient, and there are several actions you can do to troubleshoot and prevent that situation.

Power Supply
The power supply (PS) is generally a solid piece of hardware not prone to damage or breakdown. The most common causes when a laptop is not receiving enough power from the PS is when one or more of the connections (wall, adapter or pc) gets loose. If your laptop informs you that it is not recieving enough power (or any) from the PS, make sure to manually inspect it to ensure the connections are solidly together and plugged in. While inspecting the cord, look for crimps or exposed wires that indicate serious damage. Crimps can typically be straightened out, but if there is physical damage to the cord, it must be replaced. Additionally you can check the adapter, the rectangular box, to see if it is overheating. As a precaution against fire, there are circuit breakers inside the adapter that will trip if the adapter begins to overheat. Normally, these circuits require you to unplug the power cables from the adapter, cord and wall before reassembling them in order to reset. On rare occasions, the circuit breaker will fail to trip and actually burn out from the inside; this requires replacing the entire PS.

The most common reason for power troubles on the Acer 3000 TravelMate, as well as most laptops, is a faulty battery. Batteries have a limited lifespan, and their ability to store a charge gradually reduces over time. Excessive use and overheating rapidly drain the battery and can often prematurely kill the battery. If you are having problems with a new battery or laptop charging or storing a charge, remove the battery and inspect it for physical damage. When inspecting the battery, pay careful attention for liquid, burn marks or pitting. If you discover any of these, carefully clean the battery and its connectors (copper ends) with a dry cloth. Once clean, reattach the battery and plug the PS back in to the laptop and wall. When possible, you should always use the PS instead of relying on the battery. This will prolong the battery's life.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Acer Extensa 5620: The power supply jack is loose when you plug it into the laptop. Sometimes it will provide power and sometimes it will not (orange battery light on front of laptop goes on & off)....

System check
1. estimate the extent of damage, possibly requires entire board replacement housing the extension power supply modulators, possibly due to physical damage on contact.
2. Aslo check the battery life since could determine the possibilty of substituting power chord from currrent outlets with batteries

The device would not connect to power outlet without a properly functioning battery installed. A depleted battery could not be replaceble by connecting a source out power outlet. each parts of the power complement the entire process of achieving computer experiece.

Consult a technician insisting the replace the entire power system of battery and ac adapters and also fixing damages on the mother board may be contributing to power leakage

My dv9000 may need to be sent to HP for repair. It is not powering up. I have tried many of the solutions posted here, and determined it will have to be shipped off. Will I lose all of the data I have?...

If its not a powering up then you can't create a backup. But don't worry. Its a power supply error.( Hardware problem not a software). Be cool and visit your HP repair house. They operate on your laptop for hardware problem. when its done the power will back on your system. After that you can use it normally even no need to format. You can do one more thing if you have any friend or relative who are using same type power cord then just try to plug on there power cable on your system. It may run. Some time Power cable get damaged and people facing those kind of problem. Few chances happens on your laptop.
1. Power cable adaptor damaged.
2. power port on your taptop damaged.
3. SMPS fault/ short.

Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.

My Acer 3680 laptop can barely get a charge

There is 2 possible problems, 1) the connector on the computer side (motherboard) is damaged and 2) the power cord from the power supply is damaged.

1) you can really a lot about unless you bring it to a computer shop to repair. BUT I would check for #2

2) Go to a computer store like best buy and get a universal power supply that works for your laptop and try it out first. If it works well. then its not #1 problem.

Power supply doesn't seem to supply power to Gateway labtop

Well its likely that you could have damaged the power cord. If one of the internal wires got yanked when your foot caught the cord it could have lost it's connection. Try going to an electronics store and asking if they have any universal adapters, look on the back and see if your laptop model is supported. Try it and see if it works, if not return the cord and the problem will be with the female plug in the back of the laptop. Like you said its probably not the laptop

Hope this helps, please comment back if you have any further questions or information about the problem. Feel free to leave positive feedback if this helps, thanks for stopping by at Fixya!

I used to work at Best Buy so here is the scoop. Bring in your notebook ASAP to Best Buy. Take it to the Geek Squad counter and tell them that you have a service plan and would like a new battery. Under your service plan you are entitled to a battery replacement. What they will do is order you a new one, and have it sent to the store. They might tell you that you have to have it sent off for service, but in actuality they can just send the order in without your notebook. As long as you go in prior to the expiration date, and the order is sent in before the PSP expires, you should be fine.
