Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook ?

When on button pushed, brief lighting of hard drive light won't

\015 When I press the on button, I get a brief flash of the HDD light and that is all. On rare occassions it will boot up fine and operate like old times, but this is rare and not dependable. What is your solution???\015

Answers :

Remove the battery, hard drive and memory chips then put the back nice and firmly. It often is the solution for such a problem. Otherwise the hard drive has bad sectors and cannot always read the operating system files to boot up.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
