Sony vaio VGN-A17GP not booting- 1 green light 2 amber are shown

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

It turns on and everything but the screen just stay black..............can anyone help me

The first thing to try is to plug in an external monitor to the laptop while the laptop is off, then turn it on and see if the screen comes on. If the screen comes on and the laptop boots like normal then your LCD is bad, if the screen never comes up and you still think your laptop is booting in the background (for instance you can hear the start up sound and see the hard drive working during boot) then the video card on the laptop will be bad.

If the laptop only seems to turn on, but it appears there is no sign of it booting then there will be a different issue. At that point the first thing to do is remove anything that is not needed to boot the laptop. Remove the hard drive, the cd-rom drive and any extra memory trying the memory one at a time if there is more then one. All of these should be easy to remove and under access panels on the bottom of the laptop. Once these are removed try to boot the laptop, if you see the screen come on then that means something you removed is bad, you can put everything back one at a time trying the laptop after each thing you put back until you find the culprit. However if the laptop still will not boot then either the memory or the motherboard is bad.

Black Screen on laptop start up. Makes a slight noise after pushing start button but screen never changes from black and eventually the light on the power up key goes out. We checked the hard drive and...


There seem to be a problem with the module of the laptop, that is why you are having a black screen through out the boothing process of the laptop.

The module is the chip that allows information from the main board reach the screen.

The hardwares would be working perfectly fine, but since the module is having problems, the screen will not light up, and the computer can go off after boothing.

Have the module checked and replaced and your laptop will be in good condition once again.

Good luck.

I don't kno whats wrong with it it was working fine last night. I was using it then the screen went black. Its turn on still but theres no regualr start up or safe mode boot just a black screen.

Can mean alot of things but try removing the battery & and the ram, leave it for sometime and place it back in the system. try run it again.

if not working, try this, remove the Hard drive and boot the laptop without the hard drive or disk. sometimes hard disk causes the system not to display anything on the screen when you switch on.
then you have to get a new hard drive to reinstall the system again.

HP2510 laptop will not boot up. The power

Make sure to remove any power source from the laptop.
The most common problem can be that you may have dislodged the RAMs. Open up your laptop till you see your RAMs, in most systems RAMs compartment can be viewed without opening the system fully. When you see the ram, very carefully remove them and clean gently with a cloth and replace them cautiously make sure you don't hurt any thing.
Plug in the power sources and turn on your computer.
If this doesn't help, comment so that I can assist you further.

No boot Device Selected error!Compaq!

Sorry, sounds like a dead hard drive. If you can gain access to the drive, you should check for loose connections. Also, listen closely to the notebook as soon as you start it up - can you hear the drive spinning? Can you hear any loud clicking or grinding noises? Any odd sounds can also mean a dead or dying hard drive.
Good luck, and please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!!

Toshiba M40X laptop starts to boot than shutsdown after 5to10 sec

This is probably an issue with the laptop's power supply. Check your PSU for anything that looks burnt or charred and post back. It can also be due to a faulty graphics card but lets check all the possibilities first..
PS:Not that you will have to take your laptop apart for this so if you don't know what you are doing better take professional assistance
