Pressing the power button momentarily should start the system up. When you get it going, dissable the setting as it is a nuisance.
There is possibly a BIOS upgrade that will fix this, go to Dell.com for a download.
Hope this helps.

Acer iconia is turning off when unplugged on full battery


There are two possible problems:

1. Software (Video Driver)
2. Battery

With regards to the software issue, you just need to update the video firmware or driver. Chances are, your acer is programmed to power savings mode when it's removed from the plug and when it changes the setting to power saving mode, the driver cannot support it because it's outdated that's why it goes off.

2nd Possible reason is your battery going dead. If that's the case, then you need to replace the battery.

I hope this helps.

How to recover the pictures that are taken on lumex digital camera in clip board mode


What you seem to be saying is that the camera has saved some picture files in memory or saved possibly to internal memory. I am not real sure what clip board mode means. Some cameras have internal memory to be able to save some files which can be copied to a card using a menu in play-back mode.
But in a computer, if you turn off the computer after saving something on the clipboard, it is gone forever, unless you have a special add-on program which saves such clipboard files to a database.

No light on on computer, and monitor screen just says power saving mode, but I can;t get the computer to even come on, what do I do?


Unplug the device. Wait 30 seconds, and re-plug it in. Press the power button.

Sounds like you've got a problem recovering from Hibernate or Sleep mode. This is not uncommon. Suggest disabling one or the other, or searching for known issues and possible solutions.

Hibernation is a power management feature. When you hibernate a laptop, you're essentially turning it off. So, unlike Stand By (Sleep) mode, a hibernated laptop isn't using any battery power at all - that laptop is off!

The secret behind hibernation is that before you turn off the laptop, everything you're doing with the computer is saved. (The contents of memory are saved to the hard disk.) When the computer is turned on again, it recovers from hibernating by reloading all the saved information and restoring your laptop to exactly the same condition it was in before it was hibernated.

Briefly, hibernation works like this:

1. You activate the hibernation feature.

Hibernation is activated differently depending on how it's set up.

2. The laptop hums as everything in memory is saved to disk.

3. The laptop turns itself off.

It's really and truly off: The battery isn't being used, and it's safe to store the laptop or put it away until you need to use it again.

To recover from Hibernation mode, just turn the laptop on. In some cases, the laptop may recover from hibernation when you press a key or touch the mouse pad. hibernated state for as long as you want.


Hibernation mode requires hard drive space. So you should be aware that when hard drive space runs low, it's possible that Hibernation mode won't work.



In Windows XP, you have to activate Hibernation mode before you can use it. Follow these steps to activate Hibernation:

1. Click the Start button.

2. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.

3. Open the Power Options icon in the Control Panel.

4. In the Power Options Properties dialog box, look for and click on the Hibernation tab.

If you don't see a Hibernation tab, there's your answer: The laptop isn't capable of hibernating. Oh, well.

You might want to check the laptop's Setup program to see whether you can activate Hibernation there.

5. Select the Enable Hibernation option by clicking the check box to place a check mark in the box.

6. Review other options, if they're available.

7. Click OK to confirm the changes and close the Power Options Properties dialog box.

Optionally, close the Control Panel window, as well.

Some laptops may require you to restart Windows for this change to take effect.
