Re: Help my computer wont start if I close my lid ....
It sounds to me that there might be a lose connection somewhere. The first thing to do is make sure that all cables are securely fastened.
When you say that your computer won't start when you put the cover back on and lay it on it's side does it respond at all when you hit the power button? Lights, anything displayed on the monitor, fan noise, etc.? Also when you leave the cover off is the computer laid on it's side like when the cover is on? does it work laying on it's side with the cover off?

That beeping noise may be due to over heating. Most machines today have a temperature setting that will turn the machine off once the temperature reaches a certain point. Safety feature to avoid damaging your cpu and components. The shut down and restarting allows the CPU to cool down briefly. Thus allowing you to start the machine again. Usually it will shut down again once the temperature threshold is again reached. Good test is let the machine sit for 30 min. If it immediately starts up and shuts down a few minutes later. Heat build is usually the problem.
Typically this is due to heat sink or Fan on the computer CPU. Check to be sure both are connected to the CPU and functioning. If you have a fan on top of the heat sink above the CPU. Make sure it is working correctly. Dust build up over time will eventually kill the fan bearings or reduce airflow. Heat sink can and will become clogged with dust also. Replacement fans are easy to find. Heat sinks are even easier to clean. Depending on your machine and CPU position replacing the fan can be a challenge. But can be done in a few minutes with minimum tools.
Each bios has different post codes and it is difficult to tell what is happening with out knowing the bios of your particular machine. Listen for the beeps and check your computer manual. You can also google for this. Here is a web site that lists a few bios P.O.S.T codes. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm Once you know the beep sequence you can look it up. Usually points to the problem and you can go from there.
Hi, There is only one way to check it out.... or to find out that where is the problem in monitor or in cpu...... Solu: Plug another monitor to your cpu... if the other monitor works that men problem in your monitor else problem is with the cpu....
Good Luck!! Please do rating... Thanks for using FixYa.
when u power up the computer u heared any beep check then num lock if u abkle to num lock on and off your cpu is ok.then tv to cpu connection we have to check.
also press F8 key when u power the cpu then go to enable vga mode.
then change resolution to 800*600 or 1024 *768
If this computer is new, than I would probably start by contacting the vendor, and then the manufacturer. I have seen computer do this because the CPU overheats, or due to a memory problem. Usually, with both issues there are others symptoms as well, such as errors, or just the computer being slow.
It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps
Well.. you'd still have to open the lid to turn it on, right? (because you didn't mention the model of your laptop, I don't know where the power button actually *is*)
You want to close it while it's on, without it hibernating or going to sleep...
Go to your control panel, then into power or power management (depending on your Windows version, because you didn't mention it)
Then have a look under the "advanced" tab where it asks "when I close the lid of my computer". Set that to "do nothing".
Now when you close the lid, the laptop screen should turn off, but the PC should keep running. I'm not sure if that will still turn your external monitor off though.
I think that is your best solution, other than hacking off the little button that senses when the lid is closed. =-]
