Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Laptop wont turn on.
\015 I was editing a video then suddenly numbers started coming down my screen with a jumpy blue background, then my laptop started going all wierd and turned off. Then after that it wouldn't turn back on again, just nothing. When i press the power button the power light comes on but i can't hear any fans or life in it. I opened it up and cleaned it, i found a big chunk of dust in the CPU heatsink. Put it back together and still nothing. My laptop is a samsung R20. I am wondering what is wrong with it. I am guessing the motherboard has died or the CPU has. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with it?\015
I hate to give people news like this but I would imagine the poor thing ran hot until it could not compensate any longer and died. It may only be a processor failure or the main board died. By the activity you described before it shut off, sounded like a processor meltdown. A repair shop coulc probably narrow it down for you, or you could try and get a processor on Ebay and piece-meal the thing to see if you can bring it back to life. First, try to remove the heatsink and look at the thermal paste on the processor. Try to clean everything good and get a tube of thermal grease and put a small bit on the processor and thin it out and replace the heatsink. Put the windows cd in the drive and try to reboot the laptop and see what happens. Try taking out the cmos battery for a while to see if that resets anything. If it does fire up after that, just remember to reset the BIOS settings.
