Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Durabook that has worked Flawless up till today! It would not turn on. I tried the suggestion of unplugging the power cord, then take out the Battery, and remove the remory cover. Then I gently took out the memory and put it back in several times to enhance the connection if that happened to be the issue. I even took the hard drive out and back in carefully just for good measures. Then I put it all back together and pressed the power switch. The first two lights on the far left, came on when I touched the power switch as well as the fans. They stayed on for a few moments then back off. Fans were still running. I tried it two more times with the memory and met with the same results as before. Worked great last night and was left on the desk over night.

    The modle number is R-15D They only give a one year warrenty and I have had it almost 2 years now. We have a guy here in town I trust, and the gent that sold me the unit is in contact with me weekly. Not a problem to take it in, was looking for some things I could try tonight. I use my Durabook often and this was unexpected. Do you have any thoughts I can try?

Hi,

Pls try powering off, remove the battery and let it be for a while (an hour or so). Thereafter, try without the battery and using the AC adapter/charger only. Another is to try and charge the battery at least overnight with the laptop off.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What is the exact model of the unit? How long ago was it purchased? If it is under warranty you may want to go that route, or have the unit serviced by a qualified technician in your area. If you give me your location I can assist you in finding one.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Lee

    yes do it try it with and without the battery and with/without AC, though I believe you stated you tried these things. That is mostly all you can do make sure your contacts are good. Beyond that there is not too many things you can do besides those basic troubleshooting. You would have to start taking the laptop apart to inspect/test other components. Let me know what your guy finds. I hope you found this helpful.
    Thanks,

My Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 does not sew.


Try unplugging the power cord from the machine, let it set for a few minutes and try plugging in again. Sometimes this will reset the machine.

My wii won't turn on and I tried unplugging and disconnecting all the cords and it still won't work...any suggestions???


First verify the outlet on wall you are plugging the Wii into works.
Unplug the power cord from Wii AND the wall to allow proper discharge of the power unit. If you do not unplug from wall outlet to then the power unit will not discharge.
It could take up to 15-30 minutes sometimes.

I have a RCA RP3013 for Christmas, and it was working great till today, now the call numbers are all wacky on the radio and it won't play my CD's HELP!!!


This indicates a massive failure in the processor controller ic, the only thing you can try, unplug the power cord from the receptacle and leave overnight in an attempt to reset the processor. If this fails and there is no change it must go back where it was purchased for exchange.
