Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A75-S211 Notebook ?

Turns on Runs for about 10 seconds with fans on then stops but all lights still on and hard drive light still on , Whats Wrong ?


Answers :

Hello,its a software problem,i will advice you to try as much as possible to copy out your files to hhelp you have a back up copy,so after you are done with the reformation of the laptop you can transfer your files back.so you reformat the laptop and you re-install all your drivers back on the laptop so as to have everything working perfectly back as before.please try to see if the ram you are running is the actual specification for the laptop,because 512MB is the prescribed ram for it.so if you using a ram over 512mb it could cause the above explained problem.please kindly try to adhere to the 512MB RAM.
\015\012thanks so much,you are welcomed.

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.

Plus whether there is anyway I can fix this or do I just get my hard drives removed to access the info on it and recycle the laptop. Thank you
