Presario c500 on light flashes when I try to power on screen black


Does the computer make running sounds? If so it could be there is an issue with the LCD screen. If not it could be bad RAM or the Motherboard is having issues.

My laptop presario c500 wont boot


It's possible that the smack damaged a cable running from the screen to the computer. Unless you are tech savvy, I suggest taking it in to a certified repair store, where the repairs should be relatively inexpensive.

Hi,

1. Turn off computer and unplug power cord.
2. Disconnect all external devices(open up the computer tower and then )
3. remove battery
4. press power button and hold for 10-15 seconds
5. plug power cord back into computer and press power button.
6. Check LED’s and listen for power supply fan.
7. If LED’s are on or power supply fan starts spinning, watch for boot screen
8. If coputer begins to turn on, turn it off.
9. Reconnect battery and external devices.
10. Press power button and make sure computer starts.

This should work....all the best

Fast Blinking Power Button


Check your RAM. I had the same problem with my C500. I ended up having a bad stick of RAM. The only other cause I know of is the hard drive. Although this is rare if you had no problems with your operating system before.

Comp will not turn on also see lightning bolt display


Hi All,


This happens because of static energy storing in the motherboard components.

We can try power drain to resolve this issue.


Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

That should resolve the issue, if the issue persists, then you have to contact service center.


Hope that information helped you!!
