My compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart

My computer shut down by itself and will not restart. It has happened before, when it happened i removed the battery and put it back in and it restarted. I tried that and it didn't work. I will not start with the power cord either.

Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.

I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.

From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.

My Presario v5000 is doing the same as above. Except, I let it cool for a little while and it turned on. Now it only turns off after a while. I'm not to sure exactly why that is but i could possibly be an over heating automatic shutdown procedure.

These are known for a problem with the power jack (plug in)
It's possible it hasn't been charging, running on battery power, till it finally died.
When you plug in the charger, do any lights come on?
Thanks

SOURCE: my compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart

Was there any sing on the desktop saying you were running from the battery before it colapsed.
I ask because it can be two things that have done it.

The most likely is a dead motherboard. They do just fail and that's it..Just like anything electrical.

The second (and this isn't bad) is a faulty power connector on the motherboard.
Plug the power lead into it, grab the plug about 1 inch from the laptop then GENTLY move it left right up and down, and in circles while GENTLY pushing inwards at the same time.
While you are doing this, either lean around so you can see the power lights on the laptop or have someone else watch them and see if anything happens at all. Any flicker of lights etc. If so, try and find that spot, hold it, and press the power button.

This will require a bit of work to correct and best left to professionals.

My computer shuts down and I have to unplug the ac and remove the battery to get it to restart


Cold start issue. Your computer likes to be warm.

This could be because it has run too hot for a long period of time. Some damage is possible.

What you need to do is let it breath, airflow is important. Clean the intake and exhaust vents with a vacuum cleaner.

Always remove the battery from the notebook if using the AC power adaptor, unless you need to charge the battery. Maybe it's the battery that likes to be warm. Makes sense because a warm battery pack outputs more energy.

Power your notebook only off of the AC power adaptor, this may be the solution you are looking for.

Take care!

PC restarted by it's own. Temperature fast to hot


The system is heating up really fast is caused by not enough cool air being directed to your CPU, Turn off the computer un-plug everything from the wall and carefully remove the side panel, not touching anything on the inside, look for the fan should be clearly to see, after that look closely enough to see behind the fan if its all dirty and filled with un-known substances then it requires cleaning. you can remove the screws holding the fan in place to give it a light clean, and put the fan back on, before putting the side panel back on check to make sure the screws holding the lump of metal is tight, after all that turn the computer back on and it should remain on.
The main cause to why the computer shuts down is because the CPU gets so hot the computer automatically shuts itself down to protect itself from over heating and causing damage.

No power


Try disconnecting the power supply and start it on battery only.
After you see a screen display of some kind, the power supply can be reconnected.
If this does not work, then remove the battery and start the computer using the power supply only.
After the computer start up sequence is complete, the battery can be re-inserted into the computer.

If the computer continues to misbehave on later restarts, then follow the more rigorous BATTERY RECALIBRATION Procedure below.

1. Now, after the system is up and running with both the battery inside and the power supply connected, after taking note of the current settings so that they can be restored later, set the power plan to High Perfomance, set the computer to Never Sleep on Battery and on Power Supply, disconnect the power supply and allow the computer to run until it shuts itself off due to a low battery condition. This will discharge the battery and performs phase one of battery re-calibration.

2. Next, plug in the power supply, while leaving the battery in place and restart the computer. Allow the battery to fully recharge while leaving the power plan at High Performance and the Sleep to Never. This performs phase two of battery re-calibration.

3. Then, disconnect the power supply and allow the computer to run until it shuts itself off due to a low battery condition, again, now that it has a possibly better, fuller charge than in the previous charge/discharge cycle.

4. Again, restart the computer, connect the power supply and allow it to completely charge the battery.

5. Shut down the computer, disconnect the power supply.

6. Restart the computer and allow the computer to run until it shuts itself off due to a low battery condition again.

7. Now the battery has been recalibrated. Connect the power supply, restart/resume the computer and allow the battery to fully charge again. The Power Plan and Sleep Mode can be set back to their original settings at this time.

8. The above procedure should only need to be performed every six to twelve months to recalibrate the battery.


This condition sometimes happens to my HP Presario when I have left the power supply plugged into the computer with the battery in for several days or weeks at a time, without running on the battery alone for a while to discharge and recharge it a little bit.

HP recommends that when running your computer for more than two weeks from the power supply, the battery should be removed to slow the aging of the battery, which can cause the battery to lose capacity or fail prematurely.

How do I re-boot my acer AO532h computer?


If pressing down and holding the control (ctrl) key + alt key + delete (del) key together doesn't let you reboot, you should be able to hold down the power button until your PC shuts down. Then you can simply press the power button again to turn it back on.

If all else fails, unplug the unit from the electrical outlet and remove the battery. It will shut down. Put the battery back in and restart.
