Try removing the battery and starting up only on AC power. You may have a faulty battery.

My son shut down my dell lap top while it was configerating,now it wont come on,or only the icon shows and keeps spinning


To repair missing or corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then - Press R to repair when instructed. Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder. Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter. The repair process will take quite a long time.
If this does not work then I suggest you re-install Windows using the Dell recovery CD for your model Dell laptop.

The power button wont stay on


THE COMPUTER MIGHT BE OVERHEATING AND SHUTTUNG DOWN TO PROTECT ITS SELF... IDK IF YOUR GOOD WITH COMPUTERS OR NOT BUT THERE IS A THING CALLED A CPU IN ALL COMPUTERS WHICH IN EASY WORDS BASICLY THE BRAIN OF THE COMPUTER AND IT HAS A STICKY MATERIAL ON TOP OF IT CALLED THERMAL PASTE THAT HELPS KEEP IT COOL CAUSE THE SECOND THE COMPUTER TURNS ON IT STARTS GETTING REAL HOT. IF THAT THERMAL PASTE IS GONE IT COULD EASILY OVERHEAT CAUSEING IT TO SHUTDOWN. ALSO IF THE LAPTOP IS IN YOUR LAP THE FANS IN THE COMPUTER COULD NOT THE MAKING ENOUGH COOL AIR CAUSE YOUR PANTS SHIRT WHATEVER IS BLOCKING IT FROM BREATHEING CAUSE IT ONCE AGAIN TO OVERHEAT AND SHUTTING DOWN TO PROTECT ITSELF.

I won't shut down my laptop


Why is it exactly that you wont shut off your lap top...? I've actually hear that leaving you lap top on constantly is ok for the unit. I myself constantly leave my lap top on all the time and have had no issues with it. Hope this helps Shannon

This morning i got a update for windows.. well!! i updated it and then a error screen came on.. i tried to reboot the note book but its stuck in windows boot manager screen.. my lap top wont shut down.....


Boot into safe mode then go to system restore and restore it to before the update or go to control panel and uninstall the update.

To boot into safe mode:
Right after bios loads up and before windows starts loading start hitting the F8 key
Choose safe mode with or without networking doesn't matter

My lap top shuts it's self on am off


Try removing the battery and starting up only on AC power. You may have a faulty battery. It could also be the power supply or a bad memory chip. If it's none of these, then it's a motherboard problem.
