    I have a Gateway MX6446 laptop and it's doing the same thing! I was actually using it normally, then suddenly got a white screen with evenly spaced vertical lines. I switched the laptop off then powered it up after about 30 seconds and then that's when it started doing the rebooting cycle. Help, laptop gurus!!!

I'm sorry to say ,but I think it's with the motherboaed. Use the AC plug with the battery removed ,and see if it will power up. If not, I think it's a bad motherboard.

Power not coming on


Power does not come on for the following reason, THE POWER SUPPLY is bad. Unplug the power cord, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. If you see no lights, hear no fans running, don't hear the disk drive running, don't hear the cd drive click once and don't see the light on the cd drive come on for a second or two while it clicks, then you are getting no power and need to replace the power supply.

Compaq CQ4010F Desktop PC won't turn on after a power surge


You probably and lets hope so, have an Electro Static Charge Buildup on your desktop. Remove the Power Cord and Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 Seconds plug the Power Cord back in the hit the Power Button. If it boots then you had an Static Charge Buildup. If it does not boot and you say it happened after a power surge then either your Power Supply or Motherboard is possibly damaged. Do you hear fans, hear the disk drive running, see lights, hear the CD Rom click once and see the light on the CD Rom drive com on briefly after you hit the Power Button. If so it would seem that your power supply is ok.

Acer Aspire One, the Laptop powers on,the yellow light comes on when you hit the power button, thats about it you dont hear the hard drive running and the lcd dosent come up either,sometimes if i remove...


sounds like a power issue, may be related to the motherboard and you may need to get in touch with Acer support for it, but try these and see if it helps. turn off the system, remove the battery and adapter and remove the hard drive and memory if you can. with the components removed, hold down the power button for about 10 secs to discharge whatever power remaining. After that, connect all components, boot in BIOS and reset the default settings, and then restart the computer and observe it. Make sure to set any BIOS options again that you may have set previously.

Hunter remote 85752 does not work


You probably need to re-sync the remote to the fan. To do this, turn the power off to the fan; and within ten seconds, hit the "3" button, then the "2", and then hold the 1 button until you hear a click. This should fix it. Good luck!

Power light goes out but power remains thru the m-board fan runs


you need to replace the power supply. The fan sound is the fan for the power supply and not the computer. for cheap parts or used goto headgap's. They know what you need and probably even help you replace it yourself.
