Laptop wont power on.

Hi there. Bought a stellite pro sp6000 off ebay recently. all seemed to be running fine, clean XP install....great. the problem I hit was when, after disconnecting from the net at home (ethernet connection), now it will not turn on. the green power led comes on, but thats all, nothing on screen, no beeps, no power to dvd drive (wont even eject). If its any help, the last update to install was an optional update to .net framework 3. as far as i know, that was the last update i needed. Please help!!! Thanks.

Hi, regarding your problem, kindly removed your batter and use only the power adapter to AC. If is the same, your mainboard may be damage or it has a problem. You better bring it to one of the supplier or business patner of HP who provide for warranty claim

Try booting with the battery removed. Other than that, this looks like a serious problem that will require a repair service.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          The problem seems to be that if I move my Toshiba sp6000 laptop the screen turns turquoise and scrambled. The only way to get it back is to disconnect power and cable ,then sometimes it wont even boot...


          What you have said is very likely a hardware issue instead of being related to the registry cleaning.

          Is the laptop covered by warranty?
          It seems like a problem on the video adapter, its most likely failing or a cable is loose.

          I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

          It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

          I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.
