Again thanks, and goodnight. So I can use the power button to shut down the laptop and then restart it which fires up right away, but only runs for a few minutes and then shuts Really hoping I don't have to go out and buy an new computer tomorrow. Im guessing the drive was frozen.

If the copper within the wire is not damaged then suggest using electrical installation tape around the damage and re-route the power cable so that it doesnt foul on the chassis. Reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the computer.

thanks Jeremy Brock September 26, 2008 at 1:15 am Reply I see this frequently, It’s almost always caused by bad capacitors.

there is also what looks like a "battery" icon that lights up. The fans all spin up, then right back off. I looked at the USB ports, and they looked ok except for a little dust. It was finally the Power Supply which died.

Pushed power and it started up normally. i have had the blinking orange light right when i insert the power cord. HP Computing Support 808,088 views 18:42 Diagnose and Repair Dell Dimension Desktop Computer - Duration: 10:42. I am under the impressions that I simply have a dead motherboard.

We have sound, but it isn't real loud and it must be conected in the front plug. But how do I tell if USBport pins are bent and how do I fix them?
