Question about Dell Inspiron 8200 Notebook

1 Answer

Not Starting at All

So for sometime, my laptop has been attempting to start but as soon as the windows screen appeared, it would shutdown on its own. Twice it started after I thumped on the bottom of the laptop. Now it even does not start. I have removed the battery, tried just with AC adapter which is woking on my other laptop by the way so not sure what to do next?

Thoughts please.

    Thanks,



    Do you mean no battery and just AC adapter? So Yes I have tried it but no luck. Or did you mean something else?

My new Acer Aspire 5734z shutdown the day before yesterday. It sometimes will let me stay a few secs in safemode but then shuts down again. I dont understand why and im not really good at fixing computers...


Please try fixing it by running LKGC.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

How to reboot my laptop


You question is too short, I have trouble assuming it. Anyway let me try my best to make you understand.
1. If you want to reboot your laptop as soon as it starts up, just press ctrl+Alt+Del on the keyboard, before you see the windows logo start screen. It'll automatically reboot itself.

2. (windows xp), Simplest method is press Alt+F4 and then click Restart f7428f1.png

or if your desktop is set to classic menu, the click on the "shutdown" and select "restart" as shown below;

3. For windows 7, click start, then click the right arrow ">" just right to the "shutdown" button and select "restart"

Or simply press Alt+F4 and select "Restart"

Same steps with the windows vista.
Hope this helps.

Good luck.
