Problem with the ON/OFF button

Hello, I have a problem switching on my PC. It seems that the ON button doesn't work anymore when I push it, and I was wondering if there is a way to switch it on in a different way or to solve the problem using a sort of autorepair functionality.
Thank You

There is common problem with a cold solder joint on one of the components with this board. When the button is depressed, it breaks the contact, if you can reflow the solder joint it will work fine. Otherwise you can buy a new board on ebay adr replace it. To reflow the solder joint you can either heat it with a heat ggun, or a small soldering iron.

The power button is the only way to turn it on. Remove the plastic strip that contains the power button, do this by lifting up at one end, it will then pull up and off. Then you'll see the power button on the board, try pressing this button. If it starts normally, then the button on the plastic strip isn't making a good contact with the button on the board, replace the strip. If it still doesn't turn on, then power button on the board is faulty and will need to be replaced. You can find the plastic strip on Ebay for a decent price. The power switch on the board is harder to find. Most sellers on Ebay leave this attached to the motherboard when they sell a parts machine, you're best bet is a shop that deals with used or refurbished laptops.

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


Hello,

There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

HI EVERYONE My lap travelmate 5520 doesn't turn on, the greelight is on but when i push the power up button it ust doesnt turn on... it doesn`t do anything


try taking memory out and putting back in ok,
has unit been dropped or wet?
If you can't get it working, you can send unit to us for a free diagnosis, but more than likely a cost efficient repair, estimate for minor case $69.00 will let you know if anymore

Lgateway laptop won't power on


Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.
