Power does not come on. Light below memory stick slot blinks. Battery is not problem. Nothing else but that light will come on. The camera will not come on. I have tried various batteries and even the AC adapter, but it still will not come on. The only thing that comes on is the light just below the memory stick slot. My computer does not even recognize the camera. Any suggestions?

Your laptap MS card reader might not be properly installed. It might have been uninstalled or corrupted, which can always happen. Try going to your control panel, device manager, then uninstall the device, and install it again. It shoudl work this time. Good luck.

Dell inspiron 518 dsektop will not power on, power button is blue but fans and hard drive are not running?


It could be the Power Supply. I've seen times where there was enough power in them to make the power button light up, but not enough power to make the fans or disk drive run.

You can also check the tips below:
When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Laptop Toshiba Satellite A200 Model No. PSAF6A-02C01N fail boot


Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.

My Acer Extensa 5220 just blinks the power green light when switched on and goes off immediately.? Can anybody assist?


Try reseating memory modules.

Try taking out all parts like Hard drive, memory, wireless card. Does it do anything? IF it beeps, then put the memeory back in and try again.

Reseat all of them. Then try. Then if you have two memory sticks try one at a time in different slots. If nothing changes.. probably a bad motherboard or processor. (motherboard is more likely)

Won't boot indicater lights blink 4 times


does it do anything with ac power and battery removed ,same flashhing? if it does the flashing this is a hardware failure of some kind. just because it flashs 4 times may or may not lead to the true cause . if you have a extra memory stick , i would try using 1 stick at a time if your laptop uses 2 sticks.
Now if it does nothing at all you may have a power adaptor or dc jack problem .

Aspire 7520 will not power up ,the power light is blincking rapidly


A few things to try. Take out the battery and only hook up the ac adapter, if that doesn't work, then go ahead and try another known good working ac adapter cause it could be its not getting all the right voltages since the power light is blinking rapidly.

If those things don't work. Go ahead and take out the memory and resesat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion to see if the video comes back. Could be that a memory stick is bad or a slot is bad.

Also if you have another known good working memory stick then try it in each slot as well just to make sure that both wouldn't have gone bad on you.

The last two things to try would be taking out the hard drive and also taking out the dvd drive. After each of all the steps im telling you to try make sure the power is off and then turn it on with each step.

At that point if you still can't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Powers on Immediately poers off


This could be a bad memory chip or slot problem. remove the memory and try one chip at a time in each slot. If this doesn't work then the problem will most likely be in the power management system on the motherboard. This will require professional diagnosing in order to track down the exact problem component.
