Question about MSI M510C Notebook

1 Answer

MSI laptop technical problem

It just shut down as I was about to close the browser. The moment I tried to turn it back on, nothing happened. I decided to let it rest for a bit before turning it back on. Nothing happened still. And when I plugged the adapter, I don't see the green light indicator that it's being plugged. No indicator at all. After a few minutes, I tried turning it on and it's just not working. I suspect that it did overheat. I've experienced it shutting down by itself twice weeks back but it did work after allowing it to "rest" for a few minutes. Now I just can't turn it on. The only thing that's working is the built-it dvd-cd player. What could be wrong with it?!

Sounds like the laptop used up all the battery power and turned itself off. Its doing this possible because your AC Adapter is not functioning correctly. Most AC Adapters have an indicator light to show wether they are working or not. Does your have this and is it on? If the device is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for a replacement. If the device is no longer under warrany, then I would recommend getting a new AC adapter. Make sure you get the same model AC adapter that originally came with the laptop. This will ensure that you have the correct voltage and amperage.

1 Answer wont load. not at ALL. i tried every computer and browser. why would this happen? it happened on saaturday after my computer shut down and restarted for no reason. its weird

I doubt you tried every browser, but moving on.

It works just fine for me. Try updating your Flash plugin for your browsers to the latest one. Then restart the browser and go to the site.

If it helps it worked for me using:
Windows 7 64-bit
Opera 11.10
Flash 13 beta
Broadband Cable Internet

Hi I closed my laptop to put into hibernation mode and then noticed 2 days later that the power light was stuck on and not in hibernation. Upon opening the screen back up nothing happened. No lights, no...

You can try this: Shut the computer down and unplug the power cord from the computer. Remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and sing happy birthday to it. Or wait 15 seconds. Then plug the power cord back and try turning the system on. After it boots up, providing this fixes the problem, you may then replace the battery.

Hope this helps!

My h1000e takes long to shut down?what could be the cause of this and how do i solve this problem?

Pepper, It seems that you installed something that is causing this problem. What happens is that when you shut Windows down, it has to close all programs running, whether in the foreground or in the background. Now, when all programs are shutting down properly then there is no problem. But when some one decides to resists the shutting down then Windows takes longer to abide by your instructions. You have to find out this/these program/s that you installed recently. Uninstall them if you can do without them. Alternatively close them manually before shutting down. What programs are these? That you alone can find out. Another reason. Does Windows seem to take longer while "Saving Your Settings"? If that happens, then there may be something wrong with Windows. Be prepared to reinstall Windows. Do not get alarmed, but just keep it at the back of your mind. Keep taking backups of your data regularly to be on the safe side.

I have a brand new acer aspire one. A moment ago, when I wanted to open it, I saw that the green light on its top right, that is, at its "start" button was on, and the battery was a bit displaced at one...

Most likely your laptop is going into sleep mode. Lots of them do not like sleep mode if nothing happens when you push the power button try to hold it down for about 5 sec. your computer should power off and then you can start as normal. If this problem persists change the options in your control panel to turn sleep mode off. That should solve it.

Turns on, then shuts down before anything shows on monitor

So its a Foxconn Mb. Few things I can suggest. I do hope you installed the cpu before installing the motherboard & didn't forget to add thermal grease between the cpu & heatsink. One might say that you might have a short between the Mb and the case! Same problem two boards.... Did you connect the 4-pin ATX12V cable into the board which is loacted to the left of the cpu & up close to the edge of the Mb. Goto this link and follow the testing of the board.:

Acer Aspire 9502WSMi Shuts Down When Upper Parts Are Pressed!

This sounds like a short of some kind from the motherboard touching either the body or some other peice of hardware, or you have a broken soldered joint on the board causing the problem. I would take to a qualified repairer.
