Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Make sure your laptop battery has a charge. Plug it into the wall outlet for 30+ minutes and then try powering it on. When you plug it into a power source, usually the laptop will have a light indicating that it is charging. Look for a light. If the light does not light up, try a different wall outlet.
If it still does not charge, you may have a bad power cord, a bad laptop battery, the wall outlet may be bad or the laptop itself is damaged and will need to be serviced by a technician or replaced.
Through the process of elimination you can narrow down possible causes.
-Try a different wall outlet(or by testing another device make sure the wall outlet is good)
-Try a different power cable.
-Try a different laptop battery.
If none of the above help then you may need to have your laptop repaired(internal damage) or replaced.
If your laptop is under warranty you should contact your laptop manufacturer or warranty policy holder to have it repaired or even replaced.
If it is not under warranty you should look for local computer repair shops or technicians.
