Remove the memory module compartment cover. I will be working on your Malware issues. When the hard drive is installed you can hear that spin up then shuts down. I took it apart and pulled the fan. I had the same issue on my gate way computer for a while I didn't do anything for a while then one day I took it to a local computer store and when I showed them it, it just started working all right.
However, if I shut down and removed the battery. Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. I turned it on again, curious to see how long it would take to happen this time. It was dropped about 2 feet in a padded case but enough to jar it. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Are you getting any beep codes upon startup? If the same problem appears, I would say you have a motherboard problem. Could you please assist me with this problem.
Then I reformatted and changed to win xp but still the problem occurs! Please help what are the possible cause s? I also are experiencing the same problem. The one thing I have noticed is this problem seems to have replaced the issue I was having with the wireless card loosing connection. I also hear some weird static coming from the speakers when this happeneds but i have no idea what it could be. Where do I find a replacement part and what is it called. I am sure Gateway is receiving many calls from 4300 end users.
It work for one or two days still blinking was there little bit. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Turned the computer upside down. Realised i was out of my depth, put it back together, switched it on and the machine was switching on but the screen was blank black. Where do I find a replacement part and what is it called.
Can you see a very dim image if you look at the screen very closely? After about 5 seconds, the fan will stop but the power light stays on. When I push very hard just below the power button, the laptop starts until I take the pressure off. I have wrapped this area with electrical tape to stabilize it, however, the problem remains. Seem to be draining the battery fast. Jim, you have described your problem identically to the problem I was having. When we leave the computer idle for a while and come back to it, when we wiggle the mouse to turn the screen back on the computer shuts off. Then it came back and said 9 hundred whatever after I did that.
In fact, I booted to each of these three modes multiple times. If I keep turning it on, eventually, maybe when it gets warm, it works fine for ages. Brightness goes down, display draws less juice, and you can at least use it. Just trying to think of troubleshooting steps from here. The problem is when I start my notebook in the afternoon when the temperature is around 30 Celsius, it starts the fan on the backside and after shuting the fan the flash led next to the power on led flashes once and nothing happens. I remowed it, now my computer is back to normal! But, within 20-30 minutes of it being on, it did just that.
Unplug it from the power. My father, who is an electronic technician, believed the fault was actually a capacitor connected to the power supply and gave the repair a shot, and actually had it working for about five days. I tried what you said and booted to each of the three Safe Modes: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Did anyone ever find out if the bottom line issue is the motherboard or the power supply? And then once again experience same problem to where it only boots up to Windows logo again. Replace a faulty module with a new one.
It is important that you reply to this thread. I then put it all back together and still no luck. I had some blue screen messages before as well. It seems the laptop is very sensitive. I called a local laptop store and they quoted my at around 300 for an Acer 9810. Try cleaning the heat sink with compressed air. To confirm the heating issue, I then operated the computer without the fan in operation and the computer would shut down within a couple of hours.
When the power button is pushed, the laptop flashes green lights for several seconds and then powers down. I thought it was going to be okay, as if it was going to go black and turn off, it would have done so already. But doesnt loop as many times on battery, hows that for power saving! I cleaned it out but there has been no change. Its like someone pulled the plug. I'm assuming that it didn't like what I was doing and so did the whole turn-black-and-shut-off routine.
You can get a free repair because Toshiba extended warranty for this model. Replace it with a known good memory stick and test the laptop again. I have opened up the laptop. I was wondering if somebody could please help me! I dont know what the problem is…is it my power adapter its a universal one , the battery, the motherboard??? Which got me thinking, Is it the charger that is not working? This is especially true of Dell laptops. Unplug the laptop display panel from the motherboard and test the laptop with an external monitor. So far it's running silently and the temps seem to be staying in the green zone. Today, it's how these are fixed.
