Cannot turn it on!!!

I use my laptop every single day with no problems for over 2 years now. Yesterday all I did was unplug it and move it to another location so I could have more space. This morning I put it back in the normal spot and plug it back in and....NOTHING! Not one single thing. When I hit the power button it will not boot. The red light in the front flashes 4 times and that is all! PLEASE help me I miss my laptop!!! Thanksw

It could be that the power at the other location was either too low or too high and has burnt your power supply. Some appliance aren't affected by this as much as a laptop would be. To test this, go to your manufacturer's web site and look up the LED flash codes. That should tell you what those four flashes mean.

On the off chance that all it did was corrupt your BIOS memory, you could take the cover off your laptop and remove the CMOS battery. That's the almost quater sized battery that looks like it belongs in an oversized watch. Pull that out of its clamp gently and leave it out for 5 minutes and then try to start it up again. Sometimes this can reset a tiny breaker in the motherboard that protects agains only the smallest of power problems.

My laptop won't charge


What do u mean by "adjust the cord" ? If u have to adjust by twisting the jack in the power input port then it is neither the fault of the cord nor the of the battery but may be the fault of the power input port.
Go to Toshiba service center and they will solv the prob.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

When turned on it sort of made a brief "crack" then a slight hum...no picture, and it wouldn't turn off without unplugging. Replugged in and hit "on" the hum returned, no picture , wouldn't turn off again...


upon realizing that no one would give me any suggestions without charging me, I solved the problem by lugging this huge TV out to the dumpster and throwing it in.

Moved refrig this morning and now it is not cooling... freezer works great


Hih, Check and see if something has stopped the condenser fan motor down by the compressor from turning. Sometimes this happens in a move.
Also make sure the controls didn't get turned to wrong settings. Make sure evaporator fan motor is working in freezer and that there is no frost building up on the rear panel.
Just some ideas to help you.
lease let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Laptop Gateway mx8711


Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
