Question about Dell Inspiron 600M Notebook

1 Answer

Won't start up

I have recently begun having this problem where if I shut down my computer or put it in standby it won't turn back on. The three LED lights flash green and then it just goes back off. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in. Eventually (sometimes days later) it will turn on, but I can't seem to find the cause of this problem. I have already fixed the boot record and reinstalled the drivers. Any ideas??

I had one do the same thing to me recently. Turned out to be the processor. However it could be one of the many small components on the motherbord that work with the processor. First try pulling the processor and blowing it off with some air and seating it back in. If that doesn't do it then try replacing the processor, I got mine off E-bay for $15 with shipping, that's cheap enough to rule out one more thing it's not.

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Won't go into sleep mode


Which operating system ?


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.


This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation.


Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money!


Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow.


The Shut Down menu appears.

Point at "Sleep" and click on this option.

Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode.


Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse.

There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on.


All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode.


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time.


Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security."

Click "Power Options."

A menu opens.


Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode.


If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity


Your Computer in sleep mode


First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby.


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management.


Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button.


Push the Power button.


Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby


Save all work before leaving your computer.


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.


Double-click Power Management.


Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks.


Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered.


Putting Your Computer in Hibernation


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.


Double-click Power Settings.


Click on the Advanced tab.


At the When I Push the Power Button On My Computer screen, click Hibernate.


Click the Power button.


Hope this helps.

Motherboard red light stay on and computer won't turn on. Any ideas on what the promblem might be?


First try shutting down you're system. Than turn the PS off at the rocker switch (Back of PS). Ground you're self by touching the the PS. Remove you're memory and re-seat it. Than boot the system.
Check the standby LED. See if it lights green.
Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage. Anything under 2.4 volts replace the battery. Normally the MB LED displays green. (Standby power).
This means the MB is maintaining / charging the cmos battery. If the battery can no longer maintain charge this will cause the MB LED to turn Red. Built into the mother board is a small switch. When the system is shut down the MB maintains power to the cmos. If the standby switch fails to function correctly the LED will turn Red. Lets hope the problem is the cmos battery. The internal switch can not be repaired.

Cheers'
Mike

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

When I press standby button the standby led doesn't turn on


First, make sure you have an internet connection. If so, shut down the modem. Pull out the power cable and Coax cable from the back of the modem. Then first put the power cable in, then the coax cable and then turn on the unit. Restart your computer to verify a connection. Then try to press the standby button. If this doesn't work call your internet provider and they can reset the modem remotely for you.
Good Luck.

Standby LED flashes red 4 times with pause then 4 times


You either have a bad fan or one of the rotation sensors mounted on one of the fans has failed. Take the back off the set and see it the main fan slightly right of center is rotating. If it is, there are two more fans, one mounted right above the lamp and another on the optical block itself. You will have to pull the optical block to check those.

My acer computer will turn on but wont come out of hibination mode


Some laptops have issues with Windows XPs hibernation mode. To get the computer back up again you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.

Once you get the computer back running again you may want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery, but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up. If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.

Let me know if this works.

Monitor (viewsonic e70fb) keeps shutting itself off


the screen has begun vibrating and is very hard to read.


it sounds me that there is some sparking in power supply or high voltage section (FLYBACK) due to loose contact,

 

your problem of  shut off, I would turn it back on and it would stay on

.might be also due to that only.

please call tech if you are not a tech person.

it is not a major one & simple to fix.

good luck.

Randomly shutting down


Hi katrina1331, From what you describe it could be a couple of things but the two the come to mind first are power and perhaps overheating. The fact that you can?t run on battery power very long would suggest it can?t hold a charge or much of one or the AC power adaptor or charging circuitry aren't working correctly. To proceed I need to get some more information from you: Are the A/C adaptor and the battery the original ones and how old is the laptop? There are several LEDs on your laptop, (we?re going to ignore the touchpad light and the wireless LED), a power/standby LED to the top left of the keyboard three just below the touchpad. The left LED is another power/standby LED, the hard drive LED in the center and the battery LED on the right. -What are they doing just before the shutdown and immediately after while running on A/C power? -What are they doing just before the shutdown and immediately after while running on battery power? Try running the laptop with the battery removed and the A/C adaptor plugged in. Do you notice any change in running time? With the battery and A/C power plugged in click on Start, Settings and then Control Panel. Find and double left click on power options. A box labeled Power Options Properties will open, click on the tab labeled Power Meter. It should indicate the battery is at 100% or that the battery is at some percentage and that it is charging and running off A/C power. Let us know what you find. When you first start up the computer run your hand along the bottom of the laptop, especially along the four screened vent areas, to roughly gauge the laptops temperature. Use the laptop in a way that causes it to turn off and then run your hand along the bottom surface again. If the laptop is hot, to the point where it is uncomfortable to touch, then overheating may be a factor. Let us know what you find out and we?ll continue.
