    Just wondering if you had thought about replacing the battery.
    the battery may be bad. I looked and looked and nothing really comes up in the search engines.
    and appearently it's an IBM thing.
    what operating system in on the laptop?

Hello,

I assume that you are trying to boot off of your battery and that possibly an update to your BIOS was performed and now you need to boot with a power adapter plugged in. IBM is touchy with this kind of thing. If you have your adapter plugged in, I might check to see if it has a light to indicate power on it and if it doesn't check the adapter where the power cord from the wall plugs into the adapter to make sure it is well seated.

If computer does not start normally, use this checklist to identify specific symptoms and take the recommended corrective actions to resolve the problems.Perform a Hard Reset Do these actions first to clear all temporary setting before troubleshooting the problem.Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain residual charge

Perform each recommended corrective action and then attempt to restart the computer.Symptom 1: LED lights do not glow, display is black, no fan or drive sounds are heard, and computer does not startIf LEDs do not glow or blink when AC power adapter is attached and power button is pressed, there is no power available to the notebook.
  • Check AC adapter wiring and power connection to the notebook.
  • Connect a different AC power adapter and remove battery, then restart notebook.
  • Connect a different battery and disconnect AC power adapter, then restart notebook.
  • If there is no power available at the notebook, contact HP to purchase a replacement battery or AC adapter.
Symptom 2: LEDs blink or computer beeps but does not start Blinking LEDs or beep tones indicate a hardware failure during the pre-start up testing.
  • Count number of blinking LEDs or beeping tones to help with diagnostics testing.

Symptom 3: LEDs glow, fan noise may be heard briefly, display remains black, and computer fails to startup or boot Usually occurs if a component is installed incorrectly, or there is a device conflict or failure.

White screen display


Hello,


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it to the nearest repair center to have it check for LCD issue.

Screen lights up for a second during boot cycle then goes black laptop is a toshiba tecra when you hook it up to external monitor you can see display


Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Check the power supply.Hope the notebook receives power from the battery or the Ac adapter.We need to ensure there is no issue with the power supply.boot the notebook to the safe mode.If it boots to the safemode perform a system restore.In case the notebook does not boot to the BIOS,connect to an external monitor.If we still do not get a display,its the video card

IBM Laptop A22e Display an error 0175


The CRC error (POST = power on startup test) on boot up refers to the BIOS settings. This could be cause by a near flat BIOS battery and it needs to be replaces. If it is not the battery you need go to the BIOS to correct any faulty settings.
