Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My laptop comes on but immediately turns back off after a few seconds. What's wrong

Answers :

Sounds like a build up of static electricity. Try doing a power discharge.

1: Take out the battery.
2: From the adapter box (not the wall) unplug the power cord.
3: Press the power button 10 times. On the eleventh time hold it down between 25-35 seconds.
4: Plug in batter and power cord.

The computer should turn on. If not, the most likely cause is the system board or the AC adapter. You might want to try another AC adapter to ensure that the adapter is not the issue. If it's not the AC adapter then the system board is most likely dead and you need to call Lenovo (800-426-7378) to see if you're under warranty and can get the computer fixed.

I have an Averatec laptop, series 2300. While I was using it, it just shut down (immediate shut down) and wouldn't boot up again. I have removed battery, Let it charge overnight, and twice it has come back on, and then shut off again during use. Any idea what could be wrong. Right now, it will not boot up. The power light appears when it is plugged in, the blue lights appear when I turn it on, I hear a boot up noise for a second or two and then nothing.

I seem to be finding this exact same problem on several different topics. I also have an Averatec 2300 ultra-portable laptop.It seems the problem lies in the mother board not getting enough power at power up. This can be seen by the fla ... PC Desktops

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)
