Laptop wont turn on anymore

Q: Laptop wont turn on anymore

My Asus Q550LF crapped out on me. I was browsing when a whole bunch of black rectangles appeared on my screen, about an inch long. I restarted my computer thinking it just froze or something. I could occasionally get to the desktop page if I unplugged the charger but now it doesn't even turn on. It'll make one beep when I push the power button but that's it. What might the issue be and is it gonna be expensive? Because this computer has been one of the worst I have ever owned and I would just scrap it or something if it might end up being costly.

Preferred Solution: Laptop wont turn on anymore

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: Laptop wont turn on anymore

How old is it? It sounds like it could be a multiple of hardware failures including the motherboard. The black rectangles sounds like what we call video card artifacting which means the video card is dying. But the fact that it is not even booting up could point to a failed hard drive. Again, it could be anything.

Asus is known for poor customer service but you could try giving them a call.

Do you know anyone who can do some diagnostics on it? I certainly would be checking out the hard drive.

Just recently,within the last couple days, my screen saver has decided not to work. It has always worked without any problem before, and im not sure why it decided to stop.

I've checked everything that i know with my knowledge, but it seems fine.

A couple possibilities are that when i did a google search on this problem, i found a post saying something about editing the screen saver file in C:\WINDOWS, but i notice that i dont have that file.

I dont know if the file was always never there, or maybe it was deleted somehow.

Another possibility is that there is a program running in the background, but i dont think that is the case because its the same programs running when it worked before.

Thanks in Advance

A:Screen Saver wont turn on anymore

Well it might be a dumb suggestion, but if you don't have the "screensaver file" (whatever THAT is) where it's supposed to be, maybe that's why it's not working.

So then MAKE one, maybe.

Post a link to the site that talks about the screensaver file and maybe we can make you one to fix it. Or something.

Have you gone to the XP setting from Desktop>Properties ? It has a timer on it so it starts after a certain amount of inactivity. Did this change ?

Can you do the "Preview" ?

My Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2 wont turn on.
What happened was that it was connected to a power strip. While moving equipment around, the Power Strip fell out of the wall and well, when it was plugged back in. It just wont turn on.
It used to turn on automatically when connected with a red light, but now its just unresponsive.
What do you think could have happened? Is it fixable? Its been under a year as well, do you think I should contact Hauppage

Ok, so due to me being unfathomably stupid I made the unconnected end of a usb cord connected to my pc accidentally hit a radiator. Note that the PC was running. Right now, when I press the power button, nothing happens at all, it's like I didn't press it.

So, what is 100% dead? My PSU? I need to know what the first new part is that ill need to order and if a complete lack of response upon hitting the power button means "you killed your psu" then a psu I the first thing Ill be ordering.
 

A:USB-Radiator contact -> PC Wont turn on anymore. Did I kill everything?

Unless some metal part of the radiator actually got inside the Usb connector I doubt just touching it would cause this. What exactly happened to the PC, did it just turn off by itself or what ?

Is it the computer under the computer icon by your forum name ?

EDIT : What country are you in ?

A:Please help, I can't turn my laptop on anymore!

Hi Dee1Sis, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Please notice the below is just my personal opinion, based on my own experiences with various laptops. Other members might give you other advice, this is what I think.

Almost four years is a long time for a basic laptop. Although there are plenty of laptops working fine after several years, when they start to fail it can be a never ending story. The hard drive is often the first to fail. In your case it sounds as if not only the HDD was broken but also the so called disk controller, the part of the motherboard that takes care of the communications between CPU (processor) and disk drives.

As the replacement parts & work needed for laptops can cost quite a lot, my recommendation is to let your Toshiba to retire and get a new laptop.

If you get your laptop up and running, I would like to ask you to run two built-in Windows 7 tools to try to repair as much as possible. First run Check Disk (chkdsk) as told in this tutorial step 8: Disk Check.

When done, run System File Checker (sfc) with Scannow option as told in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

Hi sasss,

I'm sorry to hear this. I don't think that it is anything to do with your upgrade. You did, however, state:

Heat, or rather excessive heat, is the enemy of all computers, especially laptops. The component which generates the most heat is the CPU, and it is vital that this heat is drawn away sufficiently quickly enough to ensure that the heat does not become excessive. In a tower system, this is not too much of a problem as there is usually plenty of room to install a decent heatsink and fan assembly. With laptops, it is a different matter. The load placed on the fans within a laptop is quite high and if warm air is expelled then cool air needs to be drawn in (the main reason why you need to keep the vents clear). Unfortunately, dust particles are also drawn in and these can stick on the fan blades and bearings, preventing the fan from working efficiently. In some cases, this can lead to increased noise from the fan as the bearings start to fail, and in extreme cases it can cease to work altogether.
If this is indeed the case, it is possible that your CPU has fried, although some do have temperature sensors which automatically power everything down if a certain threshold is reached. When you restart a computer, everything effectively turns off and then immediately turns back on. It is at this point that electronic components can fail (just like when you switch on a lamp) due to the sudden change in temperature caused by current flowing through it. This rise in temperature can be quite rapid, and it is possible that your laptop is automatically shutting down even before the display starts to come on.
You might be lucky, though, and find that the noise has in fact been coming from your HDD. Remove it, and see if your laptop starts (don't worry about not being able to find an OS).
Here is a link to the main support page for your laptop series. Please note that there are a number listed, so select the appropriate one.

I'm not exactly positive, and I know HP Tech Support (phone) usually isn't that helpful, however it sounds like your motherboard may have failed, if its under warranty I would call them up and request them to send you a box to send it in for repairs (shipping should be covered under warranty).

Hi,

I'm having a common issue I would say. Last time I used my laptop was this afternoon to watch a short clip on youtube, I turned it off right after and I remember it was at 17%, although I have the power button to shut down right away. A few hours ago, I decided to turn it and and surprised I noticed it didn't turn on. I tried to plug my A/C adapter to charge it a couple of minute but the lightning light didn't even show up. I've google'd around and found a way to hard reset it ( Remove the battery/adapter/ hold the power button 30 sec) no success still. I'm wondering if it's either the adapter or the battery is dead, as I don't have any spare of both right now is there a way to confirm it?

Thanks.

A:Laptop doesn't turn on/charge anymore

Hi

There's usually a small light on the power adaptor... is it on? If not, it's probably dead. Try another main lead.
If the light is on, remove the battery from the laptop and connect the power adaptor. Does the laptop turn on?
If not, try the reset again.

If the power jack LED is not on we can figure it may be the power supply. It might not be putting out power. Just about any electronics shop can test its power output. How old is the unit? Still under warranty?

A:why wont my wireless laptop connect to IE anymore??

hi dmcd,

It sounds like you may be having DNS issues (DNS is what turns network addresses in to friendly names like www.google.com).

Try these steps first to see if it is a dns issue.

1) Click START > RUN > cmd > OK
2) In the black screen that opens type this:
ping www.google.com and press enter
(it will either come back saying "Reply from...." or "request timed out...")
3) Now in the black screen type:
ping 216.239.59.103 and press enter.

If the first one came back as "Request Timed Out" but the second came back as "Reply From..." then it is a DNS issue. If not then post back and we will try something else.

However to try and resolve the DNS problem do this in the black screen we had open before.

ipconfig /release <enter>
ipconfig /renew <enter>
ipconfig /flushdns <enter>
ipconfig /register <enter>

some of those commands can take a little while to run through, so if it looks like it has hung, just be patient and wait a little longer.

I used to have a laptop connected with wireless (netgear WG511) through a router (D-link) to my main computer with the internet.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, upgrading from an IBM r40 to an r52, and was wondering how to get the wireless network working again. The r52 appears to have a wireless card built in, and can find networks, as it can find my neighbours one (but cant connect)

I tried installing the Netgear external wireless card, but that didnt do anything except make a new network connection, which also didnt work.

If there is any other information thats needed, please let me know cos I really dont have much idea at all...

I have a Belkin Wireless Access Point connected to a router. Recently, i switched it off from the mains for a week and when i switched it back on, it wouldnt power up. Anyway i changed the power adapter and got it working. The wireless network was up and running again.

But the next day, the laptop wouldnt detect the access point anymore when it scans for AP's, even though the PC clearly detects it.

So why wont the laptop find the AP? It did work after the power problem so i doubt the APs damaged, and the laptop detects several others in my area.

Note: i have tried reinstalling drivers, updating firmware, and resetting the AP, but no luck
 

A:laptop wont detect access point anymore

Un-install your wireless network card through Device Manager, reboot and let Windows re-install it. Browse for wireless networks once re-installed.

Do you find it then? If not, let us know and we'll go from there.

Dear seven forums, please help me with my problem. I was working on something when my laptop, ACER just suddenly turned off. It was working for about 10mins or so but after that, it suddenly turned off. At the time it was working, i plugged a usb connector from my phone to the latop and an 8g flash drive.. i do this all the time since my phone, a samsung galaxy grand prime only has an 8g internal capacity and i only had a 1g sd card on it. I successfully transferred a video from.my phone to my flash drive but as i was scanning to check some more files to be transferred,poof! It suddenly turned off. As it was turning off, a box of a static-like image appeared decreasing in size to the center of the laptop then blacked out. Please help me with this worrying prob of mine. Thank u and looking forward to ur response..😊

It may be the lcd screen inverter. I wouldnt try repairing it your self if you've never tried before. you can buy one off ebay according the the model number of your computer.

Sounds like a motherboard fault, what make/model is it & how old is it?

Does anything else come on - anything on the screen, or the screen backlight? Any fans? Can you hear the hard drive or CD drive spinning? Can you hear any startup beeps or sound from the speakers?

Do you get the same lights if you remove the battery, plug in the power cord and try to start it up?

Did anything peculiar happen the last time you shut it down? Has the computer been exposed to high humidity or general moisture? Most likely this is an issue with the power supply, as a quick fix you might try booting without the battery, or visa versa without the charger.

Hi

Iv'e got a real strange problem with my lappy.
It is a Dell Inspiron 6000.
The problem is I can turn it on with battery plugged in no problem. I can turn it on with just the power cable plugged in and no battery with ease. But when I try to turn it on with the power cable AND the battery plugged in it shows all the lights and then just stalls. It is still on but doesn't get anywhere.

Can anyone help?

I guess it's because it can't handle 2 power sources at once. Just use one of them at a time. Why would you need both at once anyway?

It will not even light up to show that charger is attached. No lights come on at all. Can anyone help?
 

A:Laptop wont turn on

Sounds like an internal problem with the power input circuitry on the board. My top suspect would be the power jack that's mounted on the motherboard, they're very fragile and frequently get broken. I've personally replaced several of them.

Be very careful trying to power this up if the jack is suspect. If you wiggle it around and get a short, really bad things can happen. Here's an example, this was a Compaq laptop that was brought to me to fix, but I was a little late after the flames.

A:Laptop Wont turn on

There are a lot of possibilities. So it can be difficult (and easy!)

Lets do the real simple stuff.

Reseat the ram card(s) and blow out any dust
Reseat the HardDrive (make sure to make a secure connection)

Pull out the main (big) battery,; remove the power adaptor. Hold down ON for 30secs (dispersing all internal power)
Re-insert the power adaptor
Turn On

Now it gets a bit harder!
Remove all power again
Begin to pull it apart (the dissamble guide should be on the net somewhere)
Remove all internal dust
Reconnect all internal connections
Turn on again

Lastly (still with it apart)
Reseat the CPU

Hi, I have a msi CR410 that is working perfectly last night. Tonight, When I turned it on (plugged to adapter ) it didnt turn on..the battery light on my laptop is on and the adaptor's light is also on.. I tried the suggested on taking out the battery, pressing the power switch for 30 sec then put battery, plug it and press power but it still didnt turn on. After that I let the laptop be plugged to my adaptor just to see if the device is just power drained but after a while I saw that the battery light indicator on my laptop is also gone. When I touched the adaptor it was not hot not like before that its hot. This time its not hot nor warm, just no temperature but the light on the adaptor is still on but the battery light on my laptop is now gone too not like earlier.

Hi

A very vague post, first is it under warrantly if so take it back to where you bought it from.

If your able test the power supply with a test meter and see if there is any voltage coming out of it.

To get into 'Safe Mode', tap the F8 key several times once you see the BIOS screen, but have a look at this tutorial which covers the subject in some depth :

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-start-windows-in-safe-mode/

Before you do anything else, if you can get into Safe Mode, use Windows Explorer to back up any data your friend may have on the computer, to a memory stick will do fine. If you are getting as far as the log-in screen you should be able to boot into Safe Mode as this happens before you get that far. I can see no reason for you to touch the hard drive, RAM or DVD drive, at least in the sense I think you mean of removing them.

From Safe Mode, try restoring the computer to an earlier configuration using a restore point. If that doesn't work, he may be faced with an operating system re-install, but come back before you go that far and see if you can get more expert help.

Downgrades from VISTA to WXP can result in big problems that will create the problem you describe unless you are able to find and load all WXP drivers for all components. How certain are you that all drivers for WXP have been installed, and none from VISTA remain.

A:HELP MY LAPTOP SCREEN WONT TURN ON

If you can use an external monitor to connect to it, see if that produces anything. If the external monitor doesn't work then it is a video card problem. If the external monitor works, then the laptop's LCD screen is dead. Either way, you need repairs done to it. That's one of the reason I don't use laptops, everything is in one piece, when one thing fails, you have to send the whole thing to the repair shop, whereas with a desktop, you can swap parts yourself.

My parents have just bought a new Toshiba Satellite C855 -1J1, and it wont work unless it is plugged in. If it is on and you pull the power adapter out or in any way disconnect the power it will turn off. If it is turned off it will not turn on without the power adapter being plugged in.

I have checked to make sure the battery is inserted correctly and it is. The status of the battery is also showing that it is at 100%, but it will not work at all in anyway with just its battery and you can only get it to work with an external adapter to power it.

Before I take it back the shop does anyone have any idea what it may be.

Regards

A:New laptop wont turn on unless plugged in

I would take it back. Sounds like a bad connection somewhere.

What you can do is check all the pins of the battery and battery plug-ins whether they look OK - but that's about all the diagnostics that come to mind.

hey
i have a philips freevent x53 laptop its only 6 months old . but it crashed and wont load up . it keeps going on to the screen where you choose safe mood ect . it wont go no further then that . ive tryed rebooting and that doesnt work . i have a reboot disc to but it wont read the disc .
any help ?
 

A:my laptop wont turn on or reboot

You may need to go into your laptop's BIOS and change the boot order, as soon as you turn your laptop on, look for an option similar to "Press Del to enter Setup".

When you see the option, let the laptop run to the point where it doesn't go any further and reboot it. This time, keep pressing the button you saw earlier - it could be either Del, F2 or any number of keys.

This should load your laptop's BIOS screen. Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, navigate around - being careful not to change any of the options - until you find a section or menu called "Boot Order" or something similar. What you then need to do is fix it so that the CD-ROM drive is above your hard drive in the order, the exact key commands will probably be displayed to you in some kind of help section of the screen.

When you've done this, reboot with the CD in the drive and it should start. If not, try the CD in another computer (just starting up from the CD alone will not do anything to the computer). If it starts and shows a blue "Windows Installation" screen, there's a more serious problem with your laptop.

If this is the case, I would personally recommend sending it back to Philips (or wherver you got it from) and getting it looked at under warranty. Laptop warranties are usually good for a year unless you've dropped it or spilled something on it.

Hope this helps a bit
MF

I have a Compaq Laptop, yes I know... Anyways, I run it straight through the plug, no battery, its been working just fine, its never overheated and shut down on my though, but yesterday I took it to a friends and was using it for an hour tops, then it shut off. I assume it was from an overheating, so I let it cool for hours, and tried to turn it on, didnt turn on, no lights or nothing. I tried holding the power button down for 30secs then plugging it in, that didnt work as well. I even opened it up, and checked all the components and motherboard, nothing looks hurt or burnt. I have no idea what to do, I cleaned the fan as well. Please please someone help!!!

A:Over heated Laptop Wont Turn On

Remove the battery and run just off of the power adapter. If it won't turn on, and you believe it overheated, then it probably burned the motherboard.
You can also try removing the HDD and try booting it, you should at least get to the Bios. If not it needs repair from a professional.

I was having problems with my new computer (HP Envy m6, running windows 8). It was not signing me out properly and would not shut down. I thought that maybe I just needed to update the windows software. But upon updating the software and turning my computer back on it gave me a black screen with one blue box that says "Selected boot image did not authenticate. Press <Enter> to Continue. If I press Enter the computer the computer turns off (turning back on displays the same message). If left on nothing changes and it will continue to run the computer.

Please help me, thanks :

A:HELP!! My windows 8 new laptop wont turn on :(

Did your computer come with an install disc? Does it have a recovery partition? If yes on the first, you might be able to repair Windows start up by starting up with your disc and choosing the repair computer option. I can't remember if you can access an HP recovery partition from here, but, really, I think not. If yes on the second, you may be able to access the recovery partition by starting up by holding down on some f key. Not sure which though on you machine. Implementing the recovery partition would restore your computer to factory fresh--which is way better than you are now.

              So I have had this problem several times with the same laptop. I will go to sleep and when I wake up the laptop won't turn on. I do the RAM reset thing, remove the memory cards, but nothing. I'll just leave it plugged in and usually after a couple of days the laptop will suddenly turn on. Well, it happened again yesterday. I woke up and the laptop once again will not turn on. Can't contact dell support because they are absoultely no help. Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

A:dell laptop wont turn on

Check for a tiny little switch below the screen lid. It's possible that it got stuck down. Also, check the bios battery. A dead or low bios/cmos battery voltage will cause all kinds of craziness. Remove power plug, remove laptop battery, press hold power switch. Plug in power only no battery see if it boots. It could be a worn out or broken power port on the laptop.

I have a HP Laptop ZD 7020. About a month ago I noticed a flicker in the screen brightness like the plug was being pulled out and then plugged back in. This was while I was on the Battery. Then periodically It would flicker while plugged in and it was loose its power connection until I played with the plug in the side of the computer. Yesterday I left the computer running while I ran out and when I came back the computer was off and the lights would not show it was charging or even plugged in. I pulled the battery then put it back in and it would then show it was plugged in. When I turn it on, it starts up for about 3 seconds then shuts off. Even after it has been on the charger all night.
Any Ideas at all?
 

A:Laptop Flicker now Wont Turn on!!!!

Pull out the battery and see if it has a charging status button. That will tell you if the battery has any life. Most laptop batteries last only a few years, so you probably have to buy a replacement battery if the piece is more than 3-4 years old.

My laptop keeps shutting down and then rebooting, it has been happening a lot. A few days ago it just shut down, while it was charging and it would not turn back on. It still won't. I lost the original charger, but I'm using a charger that fits it. I have been charging it for a day or two and it won't turn on! I need my laptop and I can't really afford to buy a new battery, I heard they are really expensive. My laptop is an Acer, Aspire 5742 series. Please help. ):

A:My laptop wont turn on or charge

If you don't have the original charger and you are using a charger not designed for your laptop voltage, amps and watts you most likely damaged your laptop. (Capacitor or resistor on the motherboard).

Hi, Try the following. Open Settings and select System.  Select Power and sleep, then click on Additional power settings - in the following window, click on 'Choose what the power button does' in the left hand pane. In the subsequent window, first click on 'Change settings that are currently unavailable' ( near the top of the Window ) and then remove the checkmark from the box against 'Turn on fast start-up (recommended)'.  Click the Save Settings button, then close any open windows and restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, download the IMEI driver directly from Intel on the following link, unzip the package and run the installer. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26127/Intel-Management-Engine-Consumer-Driver-for-Intel-NU... When the installation has completed, restart the notebook. When the machine has reloaded, re-enable Fast Start-up and reboot the notebook once again - let Windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K
