    My IBM Thinkpad's screen turned black when I was using it, & it hasn't turned back on. When I plug it in the battery symbol lights up, and a symbol near the power button that looks like a 'z' in a circle, what does that symbol mean? Can I fix the laptop without replacing parts?

Power supply in HP slimline s7310n

It sounds like the CPU is over heating. It probably has poor ventilation. Unplug the unit and open the side panel. Carefully vacuum all the dust inside. Be careful not to damage any electronics. You can use a small brush to loosen the dust before vacuuming. Good luck!

A bit vague? Unplug, remove battery, leave battery out, plug in , push the on/off button. Describe what happens, fan spins? LED's blink? HDD spins up? Sound? Any thing on the screen?

Vxl 3s turns on when i plug in battery, green light comes on, than red, than blinks through the racing and training modes, wont respond with button push

It sounds like it might just be a case of the button being stuck. The ESC shouldn't turn on just from you plugging in the battery, you're supposed to have to press the button once the battery's connected to power up the ESC.

Power cord pluged in, turn on computer entered password, screen went black, power on button blinks green instead of steady on, wont do nothing else, what happened, what do i do now?

Unplug the power cord. Remove the battery. Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds then release. Plug the power cord back in but leave the battery out and try to turn it on now. If it comes on you can put your battery back in. If it still does not come on you may need a new power supply/ adapter.

Blinking Lights, Computer Wont Boot

If it's blinking 9 times then it's likely telling you one or more of the RAM sticks are in need of replacement. To check these, remove the laptops power cord and battery, then locate and remove, the cover for the RAM. Remove one chip at a time and try booting the laptop.

Toshiba a100 laptop

Definitely try without the battery. These models are known to have a "short" problem, usually with the palm rest, which causes this failure, although it usually is more sporatic, and doesn't happen 100% of the time.
Also, can you remove all but 1 piece of memory.
Good luck, and let us know what happens.
