Hello
Can anyone help, I have a problem with my IBM R51 laptop, when I shutdown or hibernate it will not boot up just the fan runs no screen!! After 1 hour or more it boots up OK. I have checked for virus and disk problems. Many thanks.

Is it getting hot? Overheating - really warm to the touch? Have you checked to see if the temps are rising?

May well be. How about heading over to PC Wizard and let's see if it id's anything. http://pc-wizard-2008.en.softonic.com/ Download and run it. You'll see icons on the left side and each will id a certain part of the system works. It can sometimes spot hardware and software issues. Let me know...Jazz

Moving on with this problem if I tap the base on booting up it starts loading I guess it could be something loose inside the laptop if thats possible! The pc wizard showed nothing sinister!!!! thanks for your help.
