has anybody got any advise on how to get a hp laptop out of sleep mode.

switch the computer on, no post, just a black sceen, tried a external moniter but did not help, and i know its stuck in sleep mode.
have tried the power cycle where u disconnected the mains and battery and hold down the power button for 30-60 secs, then connect the battery and switch on, did not work.
tried switching on but only having the screen a little open, did not work.

anybody got any suguesstions.

Are you sure it's a sleep mode issue? Can you run a live CD on it? Have you tried any diagnostics on the hardware?

yes i am sure, can't run any thing from the disk drive because the screen stays black, tried it with out the hard drive and memory, but got a beep to say theys no memory. so i thought the external monitor might help but still black screen, no post, keyboard does not respond, hard drive light blinks and then stops blinking. its annoying to say the least. cheers ACG

Take out the HDD and leave just the memory. Then try a live cd.

Is there any bios updates available for it? Is this a vista for XP machine? Try re-installing the video drivers as well.

Did you yank the CMOS batt and try to let it drain out. Not the normal battery, the CMOS batt.

ps- can we have a rule that when you ask for help you must post the make and model of the computer you are
dealing with. That should be the first thing someone posts when asking for help.

Why do you think its in sleep mode?. Please explain that.

Also what indication do you see its in sleep mode and not having some other kind of issue.

Laptops are usually set to turn off the screen when the lid is shut. If you open the lid and the screen doesn't come on, stuck or bad switch maybe. The external monitor may not work unless you activate it, that's the case with my laptop.

Yea I know I shouldn't be doing this so any mods iut there ban me.

@computergeek1

do you understand that you are totally lacking in the basic skills a tech needs, how can you possibly diagnose its a sleep mode problem just because its common.

did you do any other diag's on this pc.

[joke]
I hereby promote you to PIZZA TECH STATUS


please accept the above as a joke, thats how it was intended, but I really think you should brush up your skills. :) :0)

You gotta admit, you asked for help and acted like you were absolutely sure of your diagnostics. So we all jumped in with ideas based on that. For you to turn around and give an answer like you did is insulting. At least realize you did a pretty poor job of diagnosing this one and jumped to a conclusion based on nothing, as per your own words.

You may think we should just not bother posting on your threads anymore, but then who is going to help you fix computers ?.

Imagine if all of us hit the "ignore" button for your account, it would be a pretty lonely place for you to visit.

"and i know its stuck in sleep mode."

That's from your first post.

ps- losing your temper and cursing is the last thing you want to do on a place like this. If you admitted you screwed up and dropped the ball I cannot imagine anyone NOT forgiving you. Pulling a temper tantrum doesnt help at all.

Guys, don't waste your time on this guy. Just add him to your ignore list and stop trying to help him. This is the third or fourth post in the last week or so where he has asked for help, shown that he doesn't know jack, then gets pissed off at everyone calling him on his lack of experience or knowledge. Just let him leave.

problem now fixed, thanks to the people who sugguested some fixes to try.

Perhaps you can tell us the fix, and the tips that lead to it?

It was a loose wire, there is 3 screws in the battery compartment, if you unscrew these you can then take the speaker grill off and there is a wire behind that needs reattached. it's from the LSD to the speaker grill and other buttons.

sorry to all for my swearing and outbursts, i except i was in the wrong and should of conducted my self better.
