Hey there, This is the first time that my computer has done this. I know a bit about computers and I have tried several things to resolve the issue. Heres the problem: I plugged my computer in, and pressed the power button. the cpu fan, and all connected hardware seemed to power up properly, but the computer did not load my O/S. Or anything for that matter. It didn't even flash the system's BIOS settings. I have tried removing the battery, and resetting the BIOS jumpers. But it still won't start. When first powered up, the hard disk light lights up for about a second, then goes out, and the onboard speaker makes a quiet "pop" as if it is trying to tell me something. But after that, nothing. even the onboard graphics won't bring the monitor out of stand by when I turn it on. Iv'e resolved many issues with my computers and my friends, but this particular issue takes the cake. It has me completely stumped. Any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate it.

Well, if your using pre-windows 8 Operating System, there is an old fashioned DOS command (s) that when run before windows starts up (with only two lines of DOS code) will routinely proceed to delete your hard drive a file at a time. If done right it will delete your windows directory a file at a time on high speed... and you won\'t have any clue it\'s doing it until its way too late. And no. Anti virus wont get it because it runs as a rootkit and gets loaded long before your software. Will I tell you those two DOS commands? No. I won\'t. Why would you WANT to make a virus? Why would you want to destroy your precious computer system? Well, All i can say is first learn to spell correctly, then know the consiquences (ya I spelled it wrong lol) of making a virus. it\'s called VIRUS or MALWARE for a reason. It uses non standard code that chips off a bit by bit peice of code everytime it runs which results in malfunction. Even of your machine. So take it from someone who knows: Do NOT make a virus or malware. Hope this answered your strange unrelated to fixing laptops question. Final is: DO NOT attempt to create a virus!!!!!! You will more than regret it.
The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN - How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..
The battery continues to charge if the computer is off. The computer probably won't turn on because the battery is so low. It might not be charging because the power cord might not be plugged into a wall plug that is on. The plug might be on a switch. Find a plug that you know for sure that is on then plug it in there and try again.
hey i have done a bit of work with alfa's the problem is if the key malfunctions it will register a code in the computer and even if you fix the key it will not work properly, the best thing you can do is find a dealer with a alfa scan tool and they will reprogram the key... its a quick job that can ONLY be done on an alfa tool and beware you may need a new key, sometimes they just go .
It addresses this specific issue. It sounds like a shorted cartridge. However, sometimes this just means that the contacts in the cartridge carrier need to be cleaned. You can do this by removing both cartridges and cleaning the electrical contacts on the cartridges as well as the ones they touch in the cartridge carrier on the printer. You can do this with a slightly damp soft cloth. You can also use a bit of rubbing alcohol as well.
I would try cleaning the electrical contacts as I described above before I'd do anything like getting new cartridges. If the problem persists after that and after following the instructions in the link I posted above, then it might be time to get new cartridges.
