Preferred Solution: Just got Chromebook 14. Unable to run Chromebook R...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Unable to Charge or Turn on HP Chromebook 11

HI jaymae, Welcome to the HP forum!  I understand that your Chromebook 11 will not power on.   When you try to power it on, do you see a light in the back where the power is connected? Do you hear any mechanical noises ( iE  fan spinning,HDD spinning). If yes I would try this  Computer Does Not Power on After Software Update (Chrome OS).  If you have no mechanical noises at all, I would contact Chrome support. There should be a listing in  the documentation that came with the computer. This will provide the best contact information for your system.  If you are unable to locate it, here is a general link for Chrome Support.  Please let me know the results.

A few weeks ago, my Chromebook began spontaneously powering down. I originally thought this was due to low battery, but after a few days I couldn't log on at all, even when battery was fully charged, or machine was plugged into the AC. Would get the password prompt and be able to enter the password okay, but then the machine would lock. Cursor still worked, but nothing responded, not even the onscreen "Shut Off" button. Only way to turn off the machine was to close lid or use the keyboard power button. Is there any way to fix this, or is this machine now dead? Thank you!

I'm not sure where to put this under. But here it is. I work for a school and we house over 800 chromebooks. So each problem we get is different for the most part. I have a problem with one it is a Lenovo N21 Chromebook. When I use the left mouse button it types a series of numbers in a text field.

Any ideas why. I have power washed it twice and nothing has changed.

Hi there I'm doing this thread to once amp for all find the ultimate answers to my PC issues Before i bought my Lenovo Yoga laptop i was thinking of buying a Google Chromebook Specs might not be as high-end as a Windows PC but it loads a lot faster having no such apps or enough background process to load in the background apps load a lot faster updates come automatically and no need to download intall like a PC than a Chromebook PC? better straighforward OS and no complicated hundreds of settings to tinker with unlike a PC And besides a Chromebook is virus and malware-free forever I also happen to come from a Macbook Air and i found my PC is that slow Downloading amp installing Chromebook better than a PC? apps takes a lot longer opening or closing an app or browser or tasks also takes longer But in the course i have made some research to improve the speed amp performance of my Windows laptop mainly Turned off bluetooth Set Windows Update Chromebook better than a PC? to automatic Updated Windows Defender Defrafgging my hard drive monthly Choose Selective Startup under msconfig and made sure no apps are enabled under Startup selected apps are running under Services choose a higher number under Processors and maximum memory set to at least half of what my Lenovo is capable of under Boot Set performance to High Performance So What else have i missed Chromebook better than a PC? Also i noticed when i look at Task Manager there are background processes that i do not understand and i'm not sure whether to disable them or not although it shows affecting the RAM etc If i'm not happy with this quot complicated quot WIndows OS i might as well sell it and get a Chromebook as i use most of Google services anyway on my Android phone Please advice Thanks

My Chromebook will come on for a few minutes and then lock up. Cursor doesn't move. Only way to turn off is hold power button over 15 secs. I've troubleshooted with Walmart tech support ( bc I had a warranty when I bought it), they did hold the power button down for 30 secs. Worked for a few days. Eventually it would just blink on and back off. I just started back using it after 5-6 months. It's still freezing. Any suggestions other than get another laptop??

What is the reason Google did not include the capability to print to any wireless printer? This failure makes an otherwise reasonable device much less useful. I was thinking about pushing for our school district to adopt the Chromebook for about 1500 students but the shortcomings make advocacy somewhat embarassing. So sad. Google needs to rethink its corporate slogan and consider one similiar to "The user first, last and always."

Disconnected battery from board, did hard reset (15 seconds on power switch without adapter plugged in and with battery disconneected as per HP) - no results.

Hello, We are experiencing massive amounts of failures within the keyboards of refurbished chromebooks.Out of roughly 300 units we have had failures of about 50 within 6 months.  typically it is the (8) (i) (k) (.) keys that fail.currently we are having to purchase replacement keyboards at 80$ apiece from the HP parts store. Are we the only ones experiencing these kinds of issues? I would think that if 20% of units are failing so quickly that HP might have a bad refurbisher or need to recall these units?

I turned it off and back on, but it resumed the same state.

What is the reason Google did not include the capability to print to any wireless printer? This failure makes an otherwise reasonable device much less useful. I was thinking about pushing for our school district to adopt the Chromebook for about 1500 students but the shortcomings make advocacy somewhat embarassing. So sad. Google needs to rethink its corporate slogan and consider one similiar to "The user first, last and always."

I've tried using two different flash drives, a 16 gb by Kingston, and a 16 gb by Sandisk. Every time I try to recover OS, it says "an unexpected error has occured." This is right after it goes through verifying the integrity of my recovery media. The recovery reason states "0x5b No bootable kernel found on disk"

I do have and use the "SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive":  Did not try it in Chromebook yet, as the Google Store does not seem to have the Chrome extension.  It does play well on my Adroids (Cell and Tablet). Sandisk Wireless Media drive. That may be a way to go if I can get it to work as just a raw drive using some workaround software controls.  I guess another workaround and something else to carry & lose.

I've had my HP Chromebook since December 2014 and never had any issues with it. I love using it! Two days ago I switched the Chromebook off when it had about 8% battery left knowing I'd need to charge it when I next used it, however, it now won't start up at all and there is no charge coming from the AC adapter either. I have noticed that the Chromebook seems to be losing charge even when switched off recently as sometimes I've pout it away with 20% charge left and yet it's still been completely dead when I've next tried to use it; it never did that before. Anyway, my Chromebook is now useless to me and the HP website suggests it came out f warrenty 11mths after I purchased it in Novemver 2015. What can be done? It seems ludicrous that the damned thing hasn't lasted me 2 years yet. Please help... Anyone?

First experienced a green screen with purple vertical lines randomly about, and now the top half of my screen is completely gray. Variations of gray, light gray to a almost cool black. I haven't hit the laptop up against anything, this is strictly a home laptop so it hasn't gone in my bag and banged about at all, and I have not dropped it at all. Just a home laptop where it is on a cooling pad on a desk and hardly moved away from there, I don't know whats caused it. I have insurance on this, so can this be fixed? Or do I have to send it in for help?

@KikiLaBrat , Hello and thank you for posting on the HP support forums. The only thing you can do with a Chromebook is to do a Powerwash.   This will reset the Chrombebook back to factory original configuration. Powerwash: Performing a Factory Reset on Your HP Chromebook or Chromebox (Chrome OS) If this fails you will need to send it in to HP for repair. Please call our technical support at 800-474-6836.

Just got my new Chromebook, it worked right out of the box, got it set up, installed a few apps. It was great. I set it down for about 5 minutes, charging with the screen closed, and when I opened it back up the front lit up blue and orange once then turned off and the screen won't come on. Whenever I push the power button, no matter if the battery in with no charger, charger in with no battery, or both, the screen won't come on and the power button will only flash once then die. I'm sad to think my computer's busted straight out of the box, especially because no matter where I search I can't find any answers on how to fix this bug. Help? (Also, I bought it from Acer's ebay page so I don't have a warranty.) Thanks!

A:c7 chromebook won't turn on

 hi.. If the computer is not able to power on you may find it helpful to perform a power reset. This discharges any electrical build up which may prevent your notebook from powering on correctly.Unplug the AC adapter from your notebook.Turn the notebook over to remove the battery.Turn the notebook back over and open it.Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then release the power button.Turn the notebook back over and slide the battery back into place.Slide the lock tab back into the lock position.Turn over the notebook one last time and plug in your AC adapter.Turn on your notebookRegards

When powered on, my chrome book has no display, And all I see is the blue power indicator light blinking repeatedly with no pattern (about two times per second) if I hit ESC plus refresh plus power I get the " Chrome OS is missing or damaged" message. I have done the recovery process twice and although it says that it has recovered successfully, however, when it tries to restart, it goes right back to having no display and the blue power indicator light blinking. If I have the charger connected the orange charging indicator light blinks at the same rate. This all started approximately 24 hours ago, it was working fine before then.
