    Laptop shutting down at power on

    HP pavilion 6 with ac and battery not internal. I cleared cache by holding power button for a min. Did not work. Reseated memory and still NG. It starts bot only for a second.I
  2. My laptop when I try to turn it on starts up, you see the NO logo, and it immediately shuts off.
  3. I cannot find paper anywhere in the printer to be causing the jams. The problem started after I tried to print an envelope, which jammed. Now it continually jams upon trying to enter the print cartridge. It does this even on a manual paper feed. Any ideas please. Additionally this is what the manual says, and if there is a work around for this, I'd like to know as the estimate just to look at it was $100 and I don't know if it is worth it. The manual says if all the light light up a service call is needed.
  4. On the task bar of my laptop there is a gizmo which shows the charging of the laptop. And recently it started saying "92% available, plugged in and not charging. I took the battery out and reinserted it and things were charging OK. Now it's back to giving me the plugged in and not charging. What could this mean?

    Screen Flicker

    Well, the screen finally went totally black. I tried another inverter yesterday and the screen came on for a moment but it had lines thru it and eventually went black again. Kind of frustrating cause I was hoping to save it.

    Screen Flicker

    Well, it works find when hooked to an external monitor, so it's either a wire or bad screen.

    Screen Flicker

    This doesn't sound like the same thing. It's almost like an interference. It's hard to describe what it's doing. It's constant. For a couple of seconds the screen is still then it gets a real mad flicker going on. It's almost like it's timed.

    My son has an HP laptop about 3 years old. the screen has a horrible flicker. bad enough to give you a headache and make the screen unreadable. Is it time for a new laptop.
  14. I have windows firewall. I download the free version of network magic and that doesn't seem to find anything. How good is network magic? If you know. It doesn't happend just on weekends. I'm mostly on it in the evening.
