Reset button on a powerbook g4


The Powerbook G4 power button functions like a reset button if you hold the power button in for a few seconds until the computer powers down.
  1. Hold the power button in for a few seconds (until you see the screen turn off/go black and hear the fans & hard drive stop spinning).
  2. Press the power button again to turn your computer on.
  3. If you have more trouble, you may need to boot in Safe Mode or "perform a Safe Boot":
    Press and hold down the "Shift" key immediately after you hear the start-up tone. Release the "Shift" key when the gray Apple icon appears on the screen.

Hi
hope you have fixed the problem by now.
If not try resetting the "p-ram"
Turn on your Mac and immediately press and hold the Option-Command-P-R keys. You must press the keys before the gray screen appears. Continue to hold the keys until the computer restarts, and you hear the startup sound a second time.
Hope this helps

It sounds like your system might be running hot. Do you hear the fan running? If so it will turn on after it has cooled off, but once it gets hot it will turn off. If you immediately try to turn it back on, it won't work until the system has cooled off.

Laptops overheat because of the following problems:
1. Dust has clogged the Fans, Vents, CPU & Heat Sink Area
2. The FAN has stopped working
3. The Thermal Paste around the CPU and HeatSink has either dried up or is too thin to keep the system cool.

Try a can of compressed air and blow out the areas you can get to around the vents. You'll have to take the laptop apart to get to the Fan, CPU and Heatsink

Describe your HP Pavilion dv9000z 17" Notebook Laptop PC PC Notebook Problem it won't boot up, it lights up but nothing else


Does it make a beeping sound when you turn it on? If it does try this:
Turn it off and take the battery out for about 2 minutes. Put the battery back in and press the power button to turn on. Immediately tap the F8 key on your keyboard. This will bring you to the advanced boot options. Choose last known good configuration.
If that doesn't work you may also try choosing system restore in the advanced boot options and follow the instructions. Note that a system restore brings the computer setting back to a previous restore point.
I hope this helps.
Cheers,

STUCK ON START PAGE,CAN'T GET TO DESKTOP


Most likely a Windows software problem. Could be virus caused. Try restarting the laptop and immediately start tapping the f8 key until you see a screen with several boot options.Use the arrow key to select "boot using last known good configuration". If that works, you're done. If not, try restarting the laptop and immediately start tapping the f8 key until you see a screen with several boot options. This time select "boot in safe mode". The laptop screen will look different but will still allow you to run your laptop. Click on the "Start" button, then "Help and Support" and then "Undo changes to your system using system restore". Click on "Restore" and then select a date shown in BOLD when your laptop was running fine. Have the laptop restore to that date. After restarting, you should have full functionality. If this doesn't work, you may have a failing harddrive. Try reinstalling Windows. If it fails during loading, your harddrive is most like failing and should be replaced. If reloading solves the problem, you had corrupt software probably caused by a virus attack.

Hp pavilion dv9000 blue lights on won`t boot stuck just cli


Sounds like the harddrive went bad.
Some people call it the click of death.
Put the laptop to your ear near the harddrive and you will hear the clicking coming from there.
Good news is that it's easy enough to change the harddrive.
Bad news is you lose all your data to this point.
I hope this helps and i'm sorry that happend to you.
