Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

2 Answers

Power My daughter is having a problem with turning the computer on after it has been shut down. The box acts is if it is completely without power. I've tried everything, including what has been posted on the HP site for resolution. AC power, no battery.....battery no AC power.....resetting the RAM. The model is HP L2000 PN-EC184UA #ABA, but I could not find it in your drop down menu below Nothing. Then...with no warring, it will start normally after pushing the power switch. HP has suggested it might be a "relay". It this something you can diagnose and repair? Thank you.

Ok i did have the same exact problem it was not my laptop it was a customers,
i had changed the DC jack in it. and when the symptoms were showing no power i had put a multimeter up to it and it showed power constantly throughout the system to the battery and through. but i had realized that when i have the back off it would work and when i putit on it would stop. and other times when i took it off it wouldnt and when i put it on it would work. so i believe i came to a conclusion .

try taking out the battery and pushing it back in there, just slam it in there not too hard but push it swiftly and firmly.

It's the system board, you could try reseating it, sometimes it's enough to cure it. Failing that it will have to be replaced.

My laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-BX61MN. I disabled the power key but now it doesn't turn on again after shutting down. How do I boot it up without the power button?

Best to get a new power button to keep it on and off check the power settings and make sure your computer can goto sleep so it will act like its turning it off to save battery.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

My Acer Aspire 5810TG does not shut down on battery. No problem on AC

Until you can locate the underlying cause of the problem (could be mechanical, or your particular battery power configuration settings), you can try this:

Open up a command prompt window (Start Menu > Accessories > System; or, Start Menu > Click "Run" > Type cmd in the box and press enter)

Once the command prompt session has opened, type "shutdown -s" (without the quotation marks) and press enter.

You should see a box pop up warning that shut down will occur in 30 seconds. After the countdown completes, your computer should begin the shutdown routine. This command works for restarting the computer as well, just change "-s" to "-r"

Daughter turned my laptop off while i was making tea now im unable to start it says its repairing the problem but stays on that page and does nothing

Shut it off completely and restart. Depending on the make of the laptop either press a special button or press the start button without lifting the finger until it goes off. If It does not go off, simple take off the power cable and unhook the battery from the bottom of the computer. Reattach power and restart normally. With luck it will be OK enjoy your tea.
If on startup the computer gives you a baffling list of startup choices on a black screen, click the up or down arrows to choose LAST GOOD CONFIGURATION (or some similar wording). If the problem persists check how to repair the installation without losing your data using a Windows installation disc. Better ask a support technician or a tech-savvy friend about that.

The Startup repair program is running and wont stop

A complete scan can take several hours to complete. If you want to shut it all down unplug it and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for at least 10 minutes, and until it cools down.

My TOSHIBA MINI NB205-n313/9 10.1 inch net book will not turn on

The laptop is not turning on?

Remove the battery and try boot the machine on AC power only. If the computer starts up turn it back off, reinsert the battery and try to boot the computer again.
If it still won't boot with the battery inserted then i suggest you send or take the computer back as there is a hardware problem.

Stand By Shutting off on my HP Pavilion DV5000 using Windows XP

Is your laptop's Operating System Vista? Also, does the laptop completely power off or just go to sleep and nothing you do (touchpad/pressing keys) brings it out of sleep? If it still is powered on, but won't come out of stand by, or sleep mode try this: Go to Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View then double click the icon for Power Options.

There will be a few options under Preferred Plans and one is selected (Filled in dot)

Under the Power Plan that is selected, click Change Plan Settings and on the next screen, click Change Advanced Power Settings.

You will have a new window that opens up with a bunch of categories with little boxes with + signs. Click the + Sign box beside sleep to open op the menu. In the options under sleep, change HYBRID sleep and HIBERNATE to NEVER. Especially the Hybrid sleep as this was a problem I found with Vista. It sounds like the computer is going into the Hybrid/Hibernation and not comping out from it unless you power off the computer and turn it back on

Also, click the + sign beside Hard Disk and make sure the option to "Turn off Hard Disks After" is also set to NEVER

Shutting off

Try running it without the battery and see if it does the same. Sometimes a bad power supply will cause a short to develop in the battery. If it stops shutting down without the battery the you'll need a new battery.
