Buttons work, but the safety feature wont let it run unless I lean on the lid


Don't know if it's a front loader or a top loader. Either way, there is a safety switch in the lid. On a top loader, there is a little button at the back of the lid opening, which the lid pushes as it closes. the lid may be out of line, or warped. Did anybody stand on the lid ? If bent, try to twist the lid straight. You may also try temporarily wedging a folded matchbook cover between the lid and button until you can fix it correctly.

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

My monitor is black stand by mode is locked can't see to change the resolution


By default, Windows 7 is configured to go in sleep mode whenever you close the lid on your laptop. While this is generally preferred by most users to preserve the laptop's battery life, it might be useful to disable this process. Many laptops provide the ability to connect an external display. In this case, closing the lid would also prevent any signal going to the external display. If you would like to stop Windows from shutting off your monitor when you close the lid, access the Windows Power Options component and disable this feature.

Lid switch shorting somewhere. In this model there is no pin that I can ses. But after removing bezel it flickers but I need the location of the lid switch to check. When opening lid slowly it sometimes...


Probably not a lid switch related problem. In the more modern Toshiba's, the lid-close switch is generally located either above the keyboard area or underneath the front end of the palmrest (towards you), and the lid-close function is activated by a magnet located either above or below the screen. Best way to check if the lid-close function is working properly is to use Toshiba's power management to set the system to go to either stand-by or hibernation upon lid-close - and if the computer goes to stand-by or hibernation when you shut the lid, then that part is functioning properly.

A better, more detailed and precise description of the problem with the screen will probably help in addressing the real problem.

Trunk and hood manual latch won't work


That is not the problem the problem is your convertable roof is not closing properly to test this let someone press down on the roof lid and then try to open the trunk, To fix this let the roof lid open and let the roof come up until the back part stands up to let the roof lid close so that the roof hold is exposed look on the right hand side of the car (if your standing at the back) under the roof lid catch there is a small plastic buttun that the roof lid catch needs to pres down on, this tells the car that the roof lid is seucre and it is now safe to let open the trunk, All you have to do is set the tension on the cable for that roof lid catch and the problem is sorted.

10 minutes of background processing when coming out of stand-by...What is going on


Click Start, Run, type msconfig. Click the startup tab. There will be a list of all the programs that start up when your computer starts. You should uncheck everything you don't need. Pretty much everything except antivirus.
