Question about HP Compaq Presario V6210US Notebook

3 Answers

Any ideas? So my 6210 has been functioning, albeit slowly but I've been worried it was on its last legs. Today I brought it to work and when I went to turn it on, the lights lit up but there was nothing on the monitor, at all. I tried to reboot it again, I took the battery out and let it sit for a while...none of this was working. Then I came here to see if anyone had any thoughts, and as I flipped my laptop upside down to read the model # so I could make sure I asked on the right forum...all the sudden the screen kicked on and everything booted up. On one hand I'm thrilled, but on the other hand I'm quite concerned about the next time I have to boot up. Any thoughts/suggestions/ideas?

Backup your data, re-flash your bios, and load a flavor of linux like Ubuntu or Mandriva. Also beware of buggy automatic updates.

Hi,
If you removed the battery. Theres a possibility that the battery may have been loose or poorly connected.
I,d suggest ensuring a full battery charge. And always start-booting the computer with the AC Adapter connected.
After doing this, check that the F keys are clean, as you may have a sticky key. Usually F5-F6 Or F7 which would attempt to boot to VGA/LCD or vice-versa. The other possibility is That the RAM Is not seated correctly.

Abs light is on and brakes keep getting tighter


bad brakes. (do explain tighter?) (to a blind, no leg man)
first fix bad brakes, then worry ABS. last
explain tighter.
in driving school , they teach , how to drive (safely) with a stalled engine
as the engine stalls. and vacuum hits zero, the booster slowly
dies and bingo , old fashion , manual brakes. (stalls are like that)
is that what is happening. engine stalls?, or the booster is failing?
what happens there is brakes are 100 ok, but just harder to press
the pedal so you press harder and brakes are ALL THERE.
the is all by DESIGN.. no accident (no pun)
see if you have any other bad brakes symptoms.
like these.
http://www.fixkick.com/brakes/brakes.html#DoNotDrive

if brakes are 100% ok then , run the ABS scan or diagnostic
stated in the FSM , see what code you are getting.
then post that. ABS can not function correctly with bad brakes.
