Try removing the battery for a few seconds and putting it back in again.
If that doesn't work. It could either be that the battery is flat, or the battery is not an offical Dell battery.

It sounds like it did not properly go into stand by or hibernate. Try holding down the power button for about 5 or 6 seconds until you hear it power off. Then wait a few seconds and then turn it back on.

Hi i have a emachines g420 laptop and it froze so i switched it of and turned it back on and my vista home operating system wont come back up so how would i go about fixing it of resetting the whole thing


Did you make a set of recovery discs when you bought the computer, if you did you can power on the laptop and insert disc one into your dvd drive and then turn the machine back off by holding the power button down for 5 seconds and is will shut down, wait 10 seconds and push the power button again and your laptop should ask you if you want to boot from CD, just hit any key and follow the step by step instructions. But you will loose everything you had on your computer putting it back to factory specs, so if you have made some backups to an external drive after you reboot the computer you can reinstall all your stuff.

My loptop D610 turn on ,caps lock blinks and ater 3 to4 secons it


I would try clearing the cmos battery. It's located under a small door under the laptop battery. Unhook the wire (laptop unplugged) and let it sit for 20 minutes. Hook it back up and try to power up. If that doesn't work www.pcrepairhelp.net has techs that work on laptops.

Hello,

There are a number of things that can cause this to happen. Try taking the battery out of the notebook, disconnect the AC adaptor (if in use) press the power button a few times. Re-install the battery, reconnect the AC (if needed), press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds. This is a hard reboot and should correct you issue. When the notebook powers up, make sure you remove any cd's in the cd-rom drive.

Good Luck,

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51


The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.
