Try the steps listed below :


1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
Note : Please see that there are no external devices or cables connected to the Notebook.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power

If the issue persists, try these steps to reset the BIOS to its defaults :

Start or restart the Notebook and start tapping the F10 Key which will take you to the BIOS setup window.

In this, press the F10 Key again to set the settings to its default and exit the BIOS setup screen.

If the issue still persists, make sure that the Power adapter of the notebook is correctly pluged into the Notebook.

Hope this helps...

You need to replace the battery as it has expired.
They are available by typing the battery model number or laptop model number into ebay or Google or indeed any search engine.
Hope that helps.

Looks like your battery is having a problem. Remove the battery and replace after a couple of hours. If problem remains replace the battery with another to test, if this works, then the problem is with the adapter unit. Get a new one.

Vizio TV wont turn on after three weeks no use


My vizio recently did the same exact thing. Vizio sent an HDTV tech out to fix it and it was the power board. He put a new board in (took 15 min) and the tv works like new.

Computer shut down


The sparking has probably caused your circuit protection inside the AC adapter to turn off the current.
Also, when you are plugging an adapter in,,do not have it plugged into the wall power outlet when plugging into the laptop,,,plug into the laptop first and then plug into the wall.

Won't turn on


how old is the system
could be your internal plug for ac may have become lose from plugging and unplugging
or you may just need a new ac cord
try moving it around where it plugs into the laptop if you get a brief connection then it probably is the connection inside the laptop they can be replaced

External Hard Drive No Longer Recognized


hey im the same person who just posted above. i went to WD's website, and it said unplug the hard drive from the computer, and unplug it from the power source. then plug it into the power outlet, wait for it to spin up, then plug it in via USB/Firewire, whatever. it worked for me, so hopefully it will work for you.

Won't turn on


If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).

Hp 1315 all in one


The all-in-one product does not turn on If the all-in-one product does not turn on at all, try the following actions in order to determine the cause:
  1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
  4. Wait at least 20 seconds, then, plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.
  5. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.
  6. Press the power button to turn the printer on.
  7. For models that have an external power supply module, verify that the power supply module is plugged in correctly. Some power supply modules have a green LED built into the connector end or on the power supply module. This LED will be lit if power is present. If the LED is not lit, replace the power supply module.
  8. Plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet. If the all-in-one product has an ADF with an external cable plugged into the back of the product, use the following procedure:
    1. Turn off the unit.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet.
    3. Unplug the ADF cable from the back of the product.
    4. Plug the ADF cable to the back of the product.
    5. Plug in the power cable to the wall outlet, and turn on the power.
      1. If no change, the problem is not the ADF.
      2. If the problem clears, turn off the all-in-one, unplug the power cable, and reconnect the ADF.
      3. If the error returns, the ADF is defective. Contact HP Customer Care to get the ADF replaced.
  9. Disconnect the computer parallel cable from the back of the all-in-one product and try to turn on the product again. The computer might be grounding out through the parallel port. If this corrects the issue, check the grounding of the computer and outlet.
