Check/reseat monitor cables. If the fan and HDD are running, perhaps the power led is out. Check the monitor cable connections. Is the monitor plug into AC? Turned on? Shut down Desktop , unplug, reseat Graphics Card, if applicable, reboot.

Shortly after I turn my computer it turns off


How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down, most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off. If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not working3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin the keep the unit cool.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.

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording....


BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

Toshiba equium l20-197 booting


Chances are that it is a driver problem, try booting in safe mode by pressing f8 during the initial bot up process and selecting safe mode, with or without networking, if your systems goes in to windows then you have a drive issue, as safe mode loads with only the basic drivers needed to run windows, hope that helps

Acer extensa 4620Z laptop computer will not re-charge battery. The cord going to the outlet has power...green light...but no lights are on lap top and it is securely pluged into lap top. - When I...


It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
