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.
Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to assist you. The majority of the time the reason an e-mail will not open or send is because the computer is cluttered from extended use without being cleaned up (defragmanted). Have you ever seen commercials for maxing your computers speed? Were gonna do that. They basically run you through the steps to clean the old stuff out of your computer and file the rest away.
Now if you have McAfee then you can access their defragmentor. If you have one on your operating system you can access it their as well. This will be "optimizing.
First thing I would like you to do is open your browser and go to tools and erase all your history, cookies, CACHE, etc. This will clean thing up a bit there.
Also if you have a ton of music, pictures and videos on your computer you may want to put them onto a thumb drive as these things can slow your computer down as well.
To defrag ---
Open the Disc Utility program, which is located in the "Utilities" folder of your "Applications" directory. Highlight your hard drive from the list and have the program repair the permissions.
Look for a program to defrag your computer. There are some free utilities that can work on your Mac hard drive, but you should seriously consider purchasing a program because of the stability and support that comes with a purchased product.
Take steps to back up your data before you defrag a Mac hard drive. Data loss is unlikely with well-respected programs, but defragging is a long and extensive process, and you can never be too safe.
Plan to run your defragging program during a time when you won't need to use your computer. No matter which program you decide on, it can take up to several hours to defrag a Mac hard drive. Some companies even suggest running the program overnight.
Mac Janitor is pretty easy to use. You just click on the pic that says "All Tasks" and the defrag will run. When you see "done" then it is done.
Make sure to empty the trash as well.
When you have done all this I want you to reset your computer twice. After the reset let everything boot up all the way. Then reset it again. Then go try your e-mail and you will be surprised how fast the e-mail, and the web in general works for you now.
If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here, I will respond back to you.
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.
the first thing to do is have the computer scanned for codes,you may have abad fuelpump or bad crank sensor or even a bad module,by having the computer scanned it will give you codes to help in diagnosing the problem, go to an autozone they will scan it for free, start there.good luck.
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.
