Remove battery and try again (on mains). If it works then battery may be too far gone!

Laptop not working. says disk read error occurred. tried ctrl+alt+delete but saus phoenix secure core (tm) set up itility and enter pass word. I dont know the psss word.


What you have seems top be one of two issues, plus the password problem. Either the hard drive has malfunctioned in the laptop and the OS cannot read the disk to boot up, or possibly the BIOS/CMOS has "forgotten" where the boot device is. This can happen if there is a low CMOS battery event. In either case the laptop will revert to the BIOS/CMOS to allow the user to check settings and determine if the hard drive is being detected by the system. Unfortunately, it appears that someone has placed a BIOS password on your machine. These are not easy to get around. The only sure way to remove it is to disconnect the power cord, remove the battery, access the interior of the laptop, and remove (or unplug) the CMOS battery. Once you have done that, press and release the POWER ON button several times. This will discharge all power in the CMOS circuit and the CMOS will reset to factory defaults (no password). Then plug in or reinsert the CMOS battery, close the case, replace the battery and plug in the device and restart the system. You should then be able to access the CMOS. If the CMOS detects the hard drive on the main page, check the boot device and boot sequence menus to be sure that the HDD is the first device for bootup. If the HDD is not detected, or if the HDD is detected and all settings are correct and you still cannot boot to the drive due to the read error, you may need to replace the hard drive. If you have the recovery disc or an original OS install disk, you may be able to boot to it and attempt a repair install, where the system will try to fix whatever happened to the OS. If there is simply a corrupt file, the repair install may fix the issue, If the error in a physical one in the system area of the hard drive, you may be out of luck.

Why is my Sony VAIO VPCEB33FM green power light flashing?


It won't be the cpu. If it was, nothing would happen. I would look for a GPU issue, possible over heat.

Tx2000 hp laptop not booting up, all lights are on green except amber light from wireless button


Do you get anything on the screen at boot? When you removed the HDD did you test it? It powers up, but will not boot correct? Fan spins, LED's Blink? Battery charges? Can you get to BIOS or Boot Menu? Can you do a Restore/Recovery? If you insert a repair disk into the DVD/CD rom drive does it respond? Take a look at HP support page: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001&lc=en&product=3658348

Resert CMOS battery location


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

My HP Compaq Presario v2000 has new mobo, new CPU


You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.
